"World Outside" as written by and Devlin....
Tell me your secret, what you desire
I will still be there for you
And tell me you need it ,tell me something you're not
I will still be there for you
Say you believe it, all of your lies
Tell me you feel it and don't compromise
I will still be there for you

You're lighting my dreams
Light up my skin, so far away
You're holding it in
I'm looking around, watching it spin
God my world outside is changing something
Within

Tell me you reach it, some of the time
What you're searching for
Does the love that surrounds you
Get you down and kick you to the floor
So tell me you see it, with your own eyes
Tell me the sky is falling now in your world
I will still be there for you

You're lighting my dreams
Light up my skin, waiting so long, time to begin
I'm looking around, watching it spin
God my world outside is changing something within

So tell me the reasons, show me the signs
Say you desire, desire me now in this world
It's our world

You're lighting my dreams, light up my skin
You're so far away, you¹re holding it in
I'm looking around, watching it spin
God my world outside is changing something
Within

It's our world, but time moves
Time moves on in our world

    General CommentI cannot believe that no one has commented on this song yet! The lyrics don't really say much for deeper meanings but if you watch the movie "Closer" and there's this entrance scene with Clive Owen into a nightclub and all at once it makes sense with amazing clarity.

    General CommentYeah it's a good song. I've seen Closer but never noticed it in the film. I actually heard it on some hbo commercial montaging all their shows. Don't really know what to say about the meaning, I think it's pretty obvious.

    General CommentI might be wrong here, but I guess I will try to "analyze" this song. I believe it is about a guy telling a girl that whenever she needs him, he will always be there for her. It does not matter what she tells him because he loves her or just wants to be there for her. She just needs someone there for her to comfort her.

    General CommentIt seems to be about a man realizing he is falling in love with a woman while having sex with her.
