"fix the world up for you" as written by James Morrison, Martin Brammer and Steve Robson....
I can tell you now
When I'm here to listen
To what I've got to say
All my words unplanned
Just like us they are waiting
To come together
I don't know if we're ready to take our train

But I, oh I, I'm gonna fix this world up for you
I'll try, I'll try to build it all around you
You'll never gonna have to be alone
You'll always know you got someone
To fix the world up for you

Well I'll bet I'll get it wrong
More times that I get it right
And I won't even realize it
But I've been doing all I can
To stop you falling
Even now I'm holding my breath for you

But you don't know, you don't know
That I'm ready to hold you now, hold you now

I, oh I, I'm gonna fix this world up for you
I'll try, I'll try to build it all around you
You'll never gonna have to be alone
Yeah you'll always now you got someone
To fix the world up for you

Gonna fix the world up, up for you [Repeat: x3]

    General CommentI think some of the words are wrong... i could be wrong myself, but i think these are the lyrics:

    I can tell you now
    *You're not... here to listen*
    To what I've got to say
    All my words unplanned
    Just like us they are waiting
    To come together
    I don't know if we're ready to take our train


    **************************

    *Well I'll bet I'll get it wrong*
    *More times than I'll get it right*
    That I won't even realize it
    But I've been doing all I can
    To stop your falling
    Even now I'm holding my breath for you

    **************************

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song!! I love the soulful feel of it and James' voice is amazing....

    I love the whole theme of trying to make the world a better place just to please one person. And I like the idea of being willing to change your whole life just to be worthy of the love of a certain someone.

    Gorgeous.

    General CommentThe correct lyrics should be:

    I can't tell you now
    You're not here to listen to what I've got to say
    All my words unplanned
    Just like us they are waiting to come together
    I don't know if we're ready to take our chance

    But I, oh, I, I'm gonna fix this world up for you
    I'll try, try to build it all around you
    You're never gonna have to be alone
    Yeah, you'll always know you've got someone
    To fix the world up for you

    Well I bet I'll get it wrong
    More times than I'll get it right
    And I won't even realise it, no
    But I'll be doing all I can
    To stop you falling
    Even now I'm holding my breath for you

    But you don't know, you don't know
    That I’m ready to hold you now, hold you now

    Oh but I, oh I, I'm gonna fix this world up for you
    I'll try, try to build it all around you
    You're never gonna have to be alone
    Yeah, you'll always know you've got someone
    To fix the world up for you

    When the world comes crashing down
    I'll be there, yes, you know I will

    Gonna fix the world up, up for you
    Gonna fix the world up, up for you
    Gonna fix the world up, up for you
    Gonna fix the world up, up for you
    Gonna fix the world up, when it all comes crashing down
