"The World Around You" as written by and Tobin Esperance Jerry Horton....
Somebody falls in love
Somebody breaks a heart
We never fell in love
We only fell apart
I’m getting lonely
I need somebody to hold me
I thought id never miss her
She cut me out of the pictures

Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the desperation?
Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the life your living?

Somebody tells the truth
Somebody lives a lie
I can see right threw
The story is in your eyes
I know what there saying
There is no need for explaining
There will be nothing better
Then when I burn all your letters

Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the desperation?
Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the life your living?
Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the desperation?
Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the life your living?

We never fell in love
We only fell apart
We only fell apart
We only fell apart
We only fell apart
So we pick up the pieces and put em together
We said this is gonna last for ever
Pick up the pieces and put em together
You said this was gonna last forever!

Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the desperation?
Take a look at the world around you
Can you see the life your living?

We never fell in love we only fell apart
We never fell in love we only fell apart

Somebody falls in love
Somebody breaks a heart
We never fell in love
We only fell apart
Somebody falls in love
Somebody breaks a heart
We never fell in love
We only fell apart

    General Commentyou need to learn to listen to music, although the intro between the two songs is similar in sound, the notes and their order are obviously different

    General CommentBesterest song on the album :P Or maybe not, I keep changing my mind. Almost all of them are good.

    I think it's about a break-up. That's the only thing I can get from the lyrics.

    The first verse is I think a guy is seeing a girl but then she falls in love with another guy. So, "Somebody falls in love, somebody breaks a heart" The girl is the one who fell in love and the guy got his heart broken.

    I'm not entirely sure what the chorus means though, any ideas?
