My Own Little World

My Own Little World

Matthew West

In my own little world it hardly ever rains
I've never gone hungry or always felt safe
I got some money in my pocket shoes on my feet
In my own little world
Population me

I try to stay awake 'til the Sunday morning church
I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give 'til it hurts
And I turn off the news when I don't like what I see
Yeah it's easy to do when it's
Population me

What if there's a bigger picture
What if I'm missing out
What if there's a greater purpose
I could be living right now

Outside my own little world
Stopped at a red light, looked out my window
I saw a carboard sign, said 'Help this homeless widow'
Just above this sign was the face of a human
I thought to myself, 'God, what have I been doing?'

So I rolled down my window and I looked her in the eye
Oh how many times have I just passed her by
I gave her some money then I drove on through
In my own little world there's
Population two

What if there's a bigger picture
What if I'm missing out
What if there's a greater purpose
I could be living right now
Outside my own little world
Ooh, my own little world
Ooh

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Yeah, yeah

I'm going to break my heart for what breaks Yours
Give me open hands and open doors
Put Your light in my eyes and let me see
That my own little world is not about me

What if there's a bigger picture
What if I'm missing out
What if there's a greater purpose
That I could be living right now
I don't wanna miss what matters
I wanna be reaching out
Show me the greater purpose
So I can start living right now
Outside my own little world, ooh
My own little world, yeah
My own little world, ooh
