Clifford T. Ward — Before The World Was Round lyrics

I remember when
You said the world must be flat
Because you'd fallen off the edge
There you were just floatin'
Holdin' on to my hand
So safe and self-assured
An' it's not easy
Watchin' you walk out on me
An' simple dreams from way back when
The view was so much better then
Before the world was round.

An' I remember when
You said there must be a God
Because he answered you
And so I found you floatin'
Reachin' out for my love
And how I sheltered you
An' it's not easy
Watchin' you just walk away
From hopes that seem more tangible
An' dreams were far more plentiful
Before the world was round.

You have learnt your independence
All too soon your science grew
An' you've turned your fine attendance
On to someone new.

Instrumental

An' it's not easy
Watchin' you walk out on me
An' simple dreams from way back when
The view was so much better then
Before the world was round.
