Looking back, I guess that ignorance was a breeze
I thought I knew everything but I was naive
Didn't understand it until the age of eighteen
Yeah, even then I was blind
2012, I remember being in need
True, 2015, you were fallin' for me
You sent through a love letter for me to read
And it's engraved in my mind

She changed the world I know
And it's better for it
Four years later, and look where we really are
Look how far we've come
Look at us now

Oh-oh, we're flying, I finally know I'm here for a reason
Thank you for waiting on me
I'm dying to see her, she's my favourite every season
Thank you for everything

January, baby, I was takin' my time
Spending summer and then we'll be good in July
Why can't it be like this for the rest of my life?
Huh, no, I wouldn't mind

'Cause she changed the world I know
And it's better for it
Four years later, and look where we really are
Look how far we've come
And nothing's changed that much

Look at us now, I'm proud of you
Oh-oh, she's on her way towards me
That means it all gets better soon
I hope my world feels better soon
(I hope my life feels better soon)
You let me do what I needed to
So this one's for you
'Cause even when my worst tricks get in the way
You're here to help me feel safe
I don't need to be with anyone else
I don't need to explain
No, I don't need to explain

She changed the world I know
And it's better for it
Four years later, and look where we really are
She changed the world I know
And it's better for it
She changed the world I know
Look at us now
I'm dying to see her (she changed the world I know)
(And it's better for it)
Four years later, and look where we really are (she changed the world I know)
I'm dying to see her (she changed the world I know)
(And it's better for it)
Look at us now

    General CommentThis song is kinda obvious about the theme, I guess it was the only hit he had. You know this song starts off every CD Ive made. Its so cool...

    General CommentIf you listen to the very end he says "Meanwhile I'm still thinkin" which is a line from Chuck Berry's "Little Queenie" where he says that exact thing several times.

    General CommentWell, it depends on where you're coming from. In the UK, they had a bunch of hits, but in the US it's safe to say this was their only hit.

    Anyway, it's kind of amazing how cool this song still sounds after it's been used in a ton of commercials and has basically been played to death. Makes me want to smoke a ciggerette and lean up against a wall, but I quit.

    General CommentI would have liked this as a chorus

    Sing a Song...Bang a Gong...Get it on!

    Still, it's a great tune and the song's riff is one of a kind, not to be copied or cheated.
