Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Population Me - Music Monday MM / Meet Me Monday

In my own little world it hardly ever rains
I’ve never gone hungry, 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 through 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
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, ooo

Stopped at the red light, looked out my window

I saw a cardboard sign said “Help this homeless widow”
Just above that sign was the face of a human
I thought to myself, “God, what have I been doing?”
So I rolled down the 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, woah 

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, ooo
my own little world, ooo 

Wo-a-oh x3


Father 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
I could be living right now 

I don't wanna miss what matters

I wanna be reachin' out
Show me the greater purpose
So I can start livin' right now
outside my own little world, (yeah)ooo
my own little world, (yeah),yeah, yeah
my own little world, ooo
