She Had the World

Album: Pretty. Odd (2008)
  • She held the world upon a string
    But she didn't ever hold me
    Spun the stars on her fingernails
    But it never made her happy
    Cause she couldn't ever have me
    She said she won the world at a carnival
    But she could never win me
    Cause she couldn't ever catch me

    I, I know why
    Because when I look in her eyes
    I just see the sky
    When I look in her eyes
    Well I, just see the sky

    I don't love you I'm just passing the time
    You could love me if I knew how to lie
    But who could love me?
    I am out of my mind
    Throwing a line out to sea
    To see if I can catch a dream

    The sun was always in her eyes

    She didn't even see me
    But that girl had so much love
    She'd wanna kiss you all the time
    Yeah, she'd wanna kiss you all the time

    She said she won the world at a carnival
    But I'm sure I didn't ruin her
    Just made her more interesting
    I'm sure I didn't ruin her
    Just made her more interesting

    I don't love you I'm just passing the time
    You could love me if I knew how to lie
    But who could love me?
    I am out of my mind
    Throwing a line out to sea
    To see if I can catch a dream Writer/s: BRENDON URIE, GEORGE ROSS, JONATHAN WALKER, SPENCER SMITH

  • Alli from New York, NyI always thought this song was about Ryan's failed relationship with scene queen Jac Vanek
  • Clb from A Place, Vathis song is really pretty. yeah, its a little strange, but isnt it in panic's job description to be weird? thats why we love them
  • Latasha from Austin, TxLindsay, people are alowed to not like something. At first when I heard panic's new cd I was like "what the crap is this!?!" and I hated it, but now I like it even better than the first!
  • James from Bedford, NsHarpsichord!, thats what it was. =)
    this is an excellent piece of music. very tasty syncopation happening at parts, and the transition into the bridge is wonderful. this may be my favourite on the album right now.
  • Lindsay from Cumberland, MeUhmmm ellen, your disoriented. like i bet you've heard it once. the lyrics are amazing nd tune tune is too. so obviously you dont like panic at the disco.
  • Ellen from Sydney, AustraliaDon't get me wrong, ilove Panic at the disco, but this song seemed a little disorientated to me...i dunno, it's kinda wierd...definetly not one of my faves.
