"Ways of the World" as written by and Colin James Hay....
Who's that standing by the window?
I've seen that face someplace before
Now he's staring at the table
I Wonder if he's here to score?

If I could grasp a good clear picture
Like turning on a naked light
Only then could I relax and feel
That I was doing something right

Sights and sounds constantly bombard me
Sway and move from side to side
I find it hard to stop and concentrate
And in the middle of the night...

Wish I knew all the ways of the world
Yes, if I only knew
If I knew all the ways of the world
There is something I'd do


Who's that drowning in the river?
I had this dream one time before
I quickly dive into the rescue
And live so happy evermore

But things they get so complicated
And the face, it fades away
These are symptoms that I recognize
So to myself I softly say

Wish I knew all the ways of the world
Yes, if I only knew
If I knew all the ways of the world
There is something I'd do



Wish I knew all the ways of the world
Yes, if I only knew
If I knew all the ways of the world
There is something I'd do
