Like Sand

  • I believe that the whole wild world is against me
    I, I, I believe that the whole wild world is afraid of me

    How did I end up here
    Half alive and still full of fears
    If I'm honest I think you'll see
    I'm scared to share what's calling for me
    You say, make the most of your time
    Hard to work when it's not on your side
    What can't kill you makes you stronger
    So I heard but I'm going under

    I will try, I will try
    I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
    But it's just slipping through like sand (I want the whole world)

    I try hard to be like you
    You're my Queen but I break in two
    I think I can overcome all the mistakes that I've done
    You say, make the most of your time
    Hard to work when it's not on your side
    What can't kill you makes you stronger
    So you say but I'm going under

    I will try, I will try
    I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
    But it's just slipping through like sand
    I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
    But it's just slipping through like sand

    I believe that the whole wild world is afraid of me

    I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
    But it's just slipping through like sand
    I want the whole world, the whole world, the whole world in my hands
    But it's just slipping through like sand Writer/s: Anders Friden, Bjorn Gelotte, Niclas Ingmar Engelin, Lenny Skolnik, Bob Marlette, Seann Bowe, Howard Benson
