lyrics

You gave me your heart, I tore it apart
Left you wondering why the world is so cruel
You're working so hard to let down your guard
In the end you just feel like a fool

The world still turns
Something inside you still burns
You're living those lessons of life you have learned
Look around you, the world still turns

You hope and you pray that maybe someday
You might feel something new that won't involve crying
You swallow your pride and dig deep inside
Just to find out you don't feel a thing

The world still turns
Something inside you still burns
You're living those lessons of life you have learned
Look around you, the world still turns

If you're willing to try, let me back in again
I promise you now, I'm not who I was way back then
I'm making amends

In all of the trials you've seen through the miles
As you traveled alone and held your head higher
You stumbled along and it made you strong
But you always succumb to the fire

The world still turns
Something inside you still burns
You're living those lessons of life you have learned
Look around you, the world still turns

You're living those lessons of life you have learned
Look around you, the world still turns
