"Pretty The World" as written by Mark M Weinberg and Matt Nathanson....
They tied off your arms
With all their pretty charms
And the same bad lines
Always get you
Always get you

And you hate the way they wash you down
Summer hums heavy now
So you bolded all your best words
So that they'd have something to
Wrap their mouths around

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I envy the way that you move
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I want something just a little bit louder

All spun awake
I'm twisted in the heat
God, you're always burning up so bright
When there's someone there by your side

Well just take me home
'Cause I'm a mess enough clean
And I'll lie until i believe

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I envy the way that you move
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause I want something just a little bit louder


Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause you're brilliant when you try
Show me how pretty the whole world is
tonight

(Show me how pretty the world is)

(Show me how pretty the world is)


I never thought that i could be who i am
I never thought that i could see where i was
I never thought that all this was just wasn't me
I always thought what all this was could never be

I never thought that i could be who i am
I never thought that i could see where i was
I never thought that all this was just wasn't me
I always thought I'd wait here for you

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause i envy the way that you move
Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause i want something just a little bit louder

Show me how pretty the world is
'Cause you're brilliant when you try
Show me how pretty the whole world is

Show me how pretty the whole world is

Show me how pretty the whole world is tonight... whoa tonight

    General CommentI pretty much agree with the other people. He wants to see the world and everything through someone else eyes, because to them everything looks pretty and good, for example bad lines or jokes. He's feeling a bit depressed or and wants to be helped to see how beautiful things can be.

    General CommentBeing in love with a girl who shows him just how damn WONDERFUL and AMAZING the world can be, in all the big and small things. Its a love song for both a girl and the world in which she lives.

    I agreey with Cautionary. That sounds great.

    General CommentMaybe it's because I just got done reading a book about a couple on drugs, but something about this really does remind me of doing drugs. The line "Just take me home 'cause I'm a mess enough clean" makes me think of it, and the bit at the beginning of tying off their arms.
