Maybe you'll answer, maybe you won't
So I keep on calling, cold calling your number, or maybe I won't
I want to see and hear, don't cover my eyes, don't cover my ears


We could have been a world
We could have been one
We could have been everybody trying to get along
We could have been a world
We could have been one
We could have been everybody drawn together


I'm waiting in silence, I'm waiting for you world
To come together
But I'm getting impatient and I'm getting worn down
For you to come together
I want to see and hear, don't cover my eyes, don't cover my ears


We could have been a world
We could have been one
We could have been everybody trying to get along
We could have been a world
We could have been one
We could have been everybody drawn together


You could have been listening, you could have been here
You could have been giving and you could have cared


It could have been good, it could have been great
Take a look at yourself it's not me that you hate
You can leave all behind or you can put it on line
Just put it on the line.


It's a beautiful world; it's a beautiful world

    Maybe He'll answer, maybe he won't So I'll keep calling, pick the phone up he won't

    I want Bono to hear but he covers his eyes, and he covers his ears.

    We could of had a hit We could of have had a number one We could team up and sing the saints are coming We could of had a hit We could of have had a number one I desperatly want to be a rock star with heart.

    I'm waiting in silence, I'm waiting for U2 but I get no response. I'm getting impatient, you've joined Green Day I want you to join The Feelers I want you to see and hear, don't cover your eyes, don't cover your ears.

    We could of had a hit We could of have had a number one We could team up and sing the saints are coming We could of had a hit We could of have had a number one I desperatly want to be a rock star with heart.

    You Bono and The Edge should of listened, you should of cared You could of been giving me a hit single but you never cared

    It could of been good, it could of been great I want to be a rock star with heart, it's you I hate See I can write lyrics like you, just hear the next line. Just read the next line.

    It's a beautiful world; it's a beautiful world
