The World Tonight

Album: Flaming Pie (1997)
Charted: 23 64
  • I saw you sitting at the center of a circle
    Everybody
    Everybody wanted something from you
    I saw you sitting there

    I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music
    Caught you playing
    Caught you praying to the voice inside you
    I saw you swaying there

    I don't care what you want to be
    I go back so far, I'm in front of me
    It doesn't matter what they say
    They're giving the game away, hey, hey

    I can see the world tonight
    Look into the future
    See it in a different light
    I can see the world tonight

    I heard you listening to a secret conversation
    You were crying
    You were trying not to let them hear you
    I heard you listening in

    Never mind what they want to do
    You got a right to your point of view
    It doesn't matter what they say
    They're giving the game away, hey, hey

    I can see the world tonight
    Look into the future
    See it in a different light
    I can see the world tonight

    (I can see the world tonight)

    I saw you hiding from a flock of paparazzi
    You were hoping
    You were hoping that the ground would swallow you
    I saw you hiding there

    I don't care what you want to be
    I go back so far, I'm in front of me
    It doesn't matter what they say
    They're giving the game away, hey, hey

    I can see the world tonight
    Look into the future
    See it in a different light
    I can see the world tonight

    Look into the future

    I can see the world tonight

    See it in a different light
    I can see the world tonight
    I can see the world tonight Writer/s: Paul McCartney
