What Do I Know?

Album: ÷ (2017)
Charted: 9 83
  • Ain't got a soapbox I can stand upon
    But God gave me a stage, a guitar and a song
    My daddy told me, "son, don't you get involved in
    Politics, religions or other people's quotes"

    I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene
    I know when I have children they will know what it means
    And I pass on these things my family's given to me
    Just love and understanding, positivity

    We could change this whole world with a piano
    Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
    I'm just a boy with a one-man show
    No university, no degree, but lord knows
    Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
    And the stock market crashing in their portfolios
    While I'll be sitting here with a song that I wrote
    Sing, love could change the world in a moment
    But what do I know?
    Love can change the world in a moment
    But what do I know?
    Love can change the world in a moment

    The revolution's coming, it's a minute away
    I saw people marching in the streets today
    You know we are made up of love and hate
    But both of them are balanced on a razor blade

    I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene
    I know, I'm all for people following their dreams
    Just re-remember life is more than fittin' in your jeans
    It's love and understanding, positivity

    We could change this whole world with a piano
    Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
    I'm just a boy with a one-man show
    No university, no degree, but lord knows
    Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
    And the stock market crashing in their portfolios
    While I'll be sitting here with a song I wrote
    Sing, love could change the world in a moment
    But what do I know?
    Love can change the world in a moment
    But what do I know?
    Love can change the world in a moment

    I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene
    You know, the future's in the hands of you and me
    So let's all get together, we can all be free
    Spread love and understanding, positivity

    We could change this whole world with a piano
    Add a bass, some guitar, grab a beat and away we go
    I'm just a boy with a one-man show
    No university, no degree, but lord knows
    Everybody's talking 'bout exponential growth
    And the stock market crashing in their portfolios
    While I'll be sitting here with a song I wrote
    Sing, love could change the world in a moment
    But what do I know?
    Love can change the world in a moment
    But what do I know?
    Love can change the world in a moment Writer/s: John McDaid, Foy Best Vance, Edward Christopher Sheeran
