  • All the world just stopped now
    So you say you don't want to stay together anymore
    Let me take a deep breath babe
    If you need me, me and Neil'll be hangin' out with the dream king

    Neil says hi by the way
    I don't believe you're leaving cause me and Charles Manson like the same ice cream
    I think it's that girl and I think there're pieces of me you've never seen
    Maybe she's just pieces of me you've never seen well

    All the world is
    All I am
    The black of the blackest ocean
    And that tear in your hand
    All the world is danglin'...danglin'...danglin' for me darlin'
    You don't know the power that you have
    With that tear in your hand
    That tear in your hand

    Maybe I ain't used to maybes
    Smashing in a cold room cutting my hands up
    Every time I touch you
    Maybe maybe it's time to wave goodbye now
    Time to wave goodbye now

    Caught a ride with the moon
    I know I know you well well better than I used to
    Haze all clouded up my mind
    In the daze of the why it could've never been
    So you say and I say you know you're full of wish
    And your "baby baby baby babies"
    I tell you there are pieces of me you've never seen
    Maybe she's just pieces of me you've never seen well

    All the world is
    All I am
    The black of the blackest ocean
    And that tear in your hand
    All the world is danglin'...danglin'...danglin' for me darlin'
    You don't know the power that you have
    With that tear in your hand
    That tear in your hand

    With that tear in your hand
