world of mine

a nest on the ground is no home for a plover
a life full of love but i have no lover
a tireless drone living alone
a wall with no face a blank space without place

a clock that ticks fast then my time's past
a flower that bloomed though she wasn't there
the wind slapped her down to the ground no sound
churning and yearning around and around

people they pass me they come from a race
that i've never heard of some foreign place
they say sit down and eat the dinner you're served
don't open your eyes don't think for yourself

oh i know the day will come, come, come
when my life will be living
i'll have the courage to step the strength to survive
no one'll step on my toes or cover my eyes
there'll be love in my life and a smile on my face
in this world of mine
this world of mine

the drum of the factory is calling my name
demanding and drawing the blood from my veins
egos and shmegos and office affairs
let me open the doors let me lose all those cares
i'm gonna go where the choir bird flies
and find my own voice and sing to the sky
where true love waits for me sitting under the tree
where my heart can be fed from sweet words said

thunder and lightening and all things frightening
bring on the calm blow away the harm
but the cycle will strengthen my life will lengthen
and i'll lift my head up high

i know the day will come, come, come
when my life will be living
i'll have the courage to step the strength to survive
no one'll step on my toes or cover my eyes
there'll be love in my life and a smile on my face
in this world of mine
this world of mine
this world of mine
world of mine
