In my own little world it hardly ever rains I've never gone hungry or always felt safe I got some money in my pocket shoes on my feet In my own little world Population me
I try to stay awake 'til the Sunday morning church I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give 'til it hurts And I turn off the news when I don't like what I see Yeah it's easy to do when it's Population me
What if there's a bigger picture What if I'm missing out What if there's a greater purpose I could be living right now
Outside my own little world Stopped at a red light, looked out my window I saw a carboard sign, said 'Help this homeless widow' Just above this sign was the face of a human I thought to myself, 'God, what have I been doing?'
So I rolled down my window and I looked her in the eye Oh how many times have I just passed her by I gave her some money then I drove on through In my own little world there's Population two
What if there's a bigger picture What if I'm missing out What if there's a greater purpose I could be living right now Outside my own little world Ooh, my own little world Ooh
Whoa, whoa, whoa Yeah, yeah
I'm going to break my heart for what breaks Yours Give me open hands and open doors Put Your light in my eyes and let me see That my own little world is not about me
What if there's a bigger picture What if I'm missing out What if there's a greater purpose That I could be living right now I don't wanna miss what matters I wanna be reaching out Show me the greater purpose So I can start living right now Outside my own little world, ooh My own little world, yeah My own little world, ooh

Mike from Norwalk, CtThis song makes me think of how being a Christian should really be. We are so comfortable in church and with our friends and family we forget what true Christianity is all about. Its beyond our own little world.
