Any Other World
by Mika

Album: Life In Cartoon Motion (2007)
  • In any other world you could tell the difference
    And let it all unfurl into broken remnants
    Smile like you mean it and let yourself let go

    'Cause it's all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    Take a bow, play the part of a lonely, lonely heart
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    To the world you thought you lived in

    I tried to live alone but lonely is so lonely, alone
    So human as I am, I had to give up my defenses
    So I smiled and tried to mean it to let myself let go

    'Cause it's all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    Take a bow, play the part of a lonely, lonely heart
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    To the world you thought you lived in

    'Cause it's all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    Take a bow, play the part of a lonely, lonely heart
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    To the world you thought you lived in

    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in
    Say goodbye

    In any other world you could tell the difference

  • Alyssa from Spring Lake, MiI love this song, it's so pretty. And I always wondered about the introductory part. Now I know, and I think the song is that much better now. :)
