"How Come The World Won't Stop" as written by Anastacia L. Newkirk and Billy Mann....
Hm

Somebody told me
You were not coming home
The words are spinnin' in time
And the air suddenly went cold

The sun is still shining
But everything feels like rain, oh
And if I had one wish
It would be to see you again

Nothing's fair
When we loose
Without a moment to say goodbye

How come the world won't stop spinning
Now that you're gone (now that you're gone)
I know every end has beginnings
But this one's all wrong (this one's all wrong)
So wrong, so wrong

Caught in the middle
Wrong place, wrong time
And I'm hopelessly missing you
And I can't stop deny

Nothing's fair anymore
And I know there's a better place
And I'll never stop dreaming of you
Ooh

How come the world won't stop spinning
(now that you're gone) now that you're gone
I know every end has beginnings
But this one's all wrong (this one's all wrong)
So wrong, so wrong

How can the seasons keep changing
Since you disappeared
Oh yeah
(tell me) how come the world won't stop
How come the world won't stop

Sweet tears are shed
This pain we lay to rest
It's hard lettin' go
But I keep movin' on
In a place I don't belong

How come the world (stop spinning)
Said now that you're gone
I know every end has beginning
Said this one's all wrong

Said this one's all wrong
(how can the seasons) keep changing
Since you disappeared
Oh, you're gone

You're gone
How come the world won't stop
How come the world won't stop

How come the world won't stop spinning
Now that you're gone
Yeah hey ya
I know every end has beginning
But this one's all wrong
So wrong

    General CommentThis song is soooo beautiful... I know, when you lost someone you love, the world is still the same, but to you it seems like it could never be the same again. Losing somebody is always the hardest thing one can experience...

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. She's saying how she doesn't understand how the world can keep spinning...how everything in the outside world can still be exactly the same, even though she's lost such a big part of her and she's completely different inside. She's saying how she lost someone she loved, whether she broke up with a boyfriend or someone passed away, and while she feels torn apart and like she can't go on, the sun is still shining outside and people are going on their way.
