Matthew West

Matthew West - My Own Little World

rate me

In my own little world it hardly ever rains

I’ve never gone hungry, always felt safe

I got some money in my pocket, shoes on my feet

In my own little world

Population me

I try to stay awake during Sunday morning Church

I throw a twenty in the plate, but I never give ’til it hurts

And I turn off the news when I don’t like what I see

Yeah, it’s easy to do when it’s

Population me

What if there’s a bigger picture?

What if I’m missing out?

What if there’s a greater purpose

I could be living right now?

Outside my own little world Woooh

Stopped at a red light, looked out my window

I saw a cardboard sign, said “Help this homeless widow”

And just above that sign was the face of a human

I thought to myself, “God, what have I been doing?”

So I rolled down the window and I looked her in the eye

Oh how many times have I just passed her by?

I gave her some money then I drove on through

And my own little world reached

Population two

Oh

What if there’s a bigger picture?

What if I’m missing out?

What if there’s a greater purpose

That I could be living right now

Outside my own little world oooh, ooh

My own little world woooh

Wooah woooah woooah

yeeah yeeah

Father break my heart for what breaks yours

Give me open hands and open doors

Put Your light in my eyes and let me see

That my own little world is not about me

What if there’s a bigger picture?

What if I’m missing out?

What if there’s a greater purpose

That I could be living right now

I don't wanna miss what matters

I wanna be reaching out

Show me the greater purpose

So I can start living right now

Outside my own little world whoo

My own little world yeah yeah

My own little world whoo whoo

Woooaah
