LUCINDA WILLIAMS lyrics - When I Look At The World

LUCINDA WILLIAMS
"When I Look At The World"

I've been out of luck
I've been talked about
I've been locked up
I've been shut out
I've had some bad dreams
And then feel the regret
I've made a mess of things
And been a total wreck
I've been disrespected
and taken for a ride
I've been rejected
and had my patience tried

But then I look at the world
in all its glory
I look at the world
And it's a different story
each time I look at the world

I've been used and out of work
I've been abused and lied to
I've been left behind
I've been misunderstood
I've been out of my mind
And not feeling good
I've been lost
I've been turned away
I've hated power
there's been hell to pay

And then I look at the world
in all its glory
I look at the world
And it's a different story
each time I look at the world

I've been unforgiven
I've been let down
Had the truth hurt
I've been kicked around
I've been wasted
I've been on the brink
I've had my faith tested and my spirits sink
I've been unwelcome
I've been unloved
I've been cheated on and made a fool of

And then I look at the world
in all its glory
I look at the world
And it's a different story, each time
I look at the world
in all its glory
I look at the world
And it's a different story each time I look at the world
Each time I look at the world
Each time I look at the world
