you think you know everything
but you really know nothing
how many time have I heard that tale?
too many times
for one hand to count
baby get a grip of yourself

cause in this poor world
there really is nobody
who's gonna grab you when you fall
except the one person
who's falling alongside you
now that ain't useful at all

I can tell you to try
to hear what I'm saying
but I just don't think that you will understand
cause the weight of the words
where they're coming from
is a world quite far from yours

one day, maybe babe
we'll get together
and you'll see just what I mean
my world is my world
and your world is yours
but the latter has no immortality
