I LOVE THIS WORLD

I love this world
love to make it all right
I love this world
love to offer some advice
but who am I
just an ordinary girl
grown into a woman
of the wide wide world

I love this world
and I know it isn't easy
'times its' darkness overwhelms me
like a starving dying child
with her father and her mother
standing helplessly by
and it's only for us each to say
we did the best with what we have
do the best that we can

chorus

I love this world
with its' every kind of person
take the best ones with the worst ones
thats just the way it is
walking with a lantern
this fear and compassion
I will make my way
and here in my corner
I do the best with what I have
do the best that I can

You can open a door
you can shine a light
but you can't change another
or make it all right
we're creatures of example
to some degree
but we're much more creatures of experience
if you ask me

chorus

I love this world
love to make it all right
I love this world
love to offer some advice
but who am I
just an ordinary girl
grown into a woman
of the wide wide world
