The World Is Yours

Album: Euphoric Heartbreak (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was the first track from the Scottish rock group Glasvegas' second album Euphoric Heartbreak to be released when a free download was made available on Glasvegas' official website on January 16, 2011.
  • The song finds frontman James Allan inverting its title's Scarface origins by writing a song about shyness. He explained to the Sunday Mail: "This was an idea I got from the movie Scarface. Al Pacino has a globe in it that says 'The World Is Yours' on it. The song is actually about shyness and overcoming it. It's all the things someone would say if they could, the most romantic words in the world."
