"The World" as written by and Kelley/paisley Lovelace....
By your look should I have something to say?
Well the question wasn't that in a day and
I took some time to mess up my life and
Its almost perfect let me get this right
We were different added together and

Congratulations I guess you're always right
Well I'm sorry that I ever tried
What happened to the world we knew?
We were so much better than
Thisâ?¦.

Memories destroyed by disease
And they're buried under letters full of words
You never meant to say
The reaction was greater than the screen
We were the difference added together and

Congratulations I guess you're always right
Well I'm sorry that I ever tried
What happened to the world we knew?
We were so much better than this

I didn't feel like this the whole time
But it didn't help when you made your predictions, yeah
We crossed this bridge, crossed it sometime ago
But I didn't know, I didn't know you would move on

Congratulations I guess you're always right
Well I'm sorry that I ever tried
What happened to the world we knew?
We were so much better than this
So much better than

Congratulations I guess you're always right (you're always right)
Well I'm sorry that I ever tried
What happened to the world we knew?
We were so much better than this
So much better than this (this)
So much better than this

    General CommentThe words are wrong...In the first stanza it's not "well the question wasn't in that day..." That doesn't make sense...It's "confusion wasn't built in a day...I don't mean to be a witch but it bothers me every time I'm here.
