"Heartbreaking World" as written by and Chris/holland Difford....
The saddest thing
I've ever seen
Was a starving face
On my TV screen
The desperate faces
That I saw
Had my disbelief
Dropping from my jaw
The harvest could be
Shared around
Instead it's buried
In the ground

The saddest thing
I've ever seen
Was a football fan
Die for his team
The toughest thing
I've ever known
Was the soldier boy
Who never made it home
It's fiction live before our eyes
It leaves me cold
And my heart cries
It's a heartbreaking world
If you want it to be

You're the one
Who breaks it for me
You're the one
Who breaks it for me

The greatest thing
I've ever seen
Was a new born child
Looking up at me
The greatest thing
I've ever heard
Was that baby's cry
In this wicked world
The innocence of that cry
Leaves me cold
And my heart cries
It's a heartbreaking world
If you want it to be
