Well God gave you the world
On the day that you were born
So how you going to save it, my child

God gave you a soul
So how you going to use it
How you going to use it

A dark place so far off in the distance
You couldn't see me but I could and kept calling back
Far across the forest a soul leaves a falling
You were falling down too, I wanted to hold you
A great heart, a great love
I can't love, you caught it
The greatest closer from a great heart

God gave you the world
On the day that you were born
So how you going to save it, my child

God gave you a soul
So how you going to use it
How you going to use it, now

Everything I am something that i seem
Because of my mother's genes
Everything i want is something that I've had Because my father's love
I dream of stopping waves, she said
I dream of stopping waves
Tears are falling down my cheeks
Into my soup again

God gave you the world
On the day that you were born
So how you going to save it, my child

God gave you the stars
So how you going to save them
How you going to save them, now

As the crow flies
I see the world from a bird's eye view
History like a trebuchet
Throws me back to you
The higher climb, the further you fall
The higher the climb, the further the fall
I gave you the stars, you wasted them child
You threw them away

Well God gave you the world
On the day that you were born
So how you going to save it, my child

God gave you the stars so
How you going to save them
How you going to save them, now---

God gave you the world
So how you going to save it
How you going to save it, now---
