Conway Twitty — I Told My World To Go Away lyrics

I grew tired of the world that I was living in
I looked around and found another world to take me in
It was bright and new with the skies of blue not like my skies of grey
And so I told my world to go away.

This world's not big enough for both of us so one of us must go
My mem'ry burns with unkind words I said
This world's not big enough so one of us must break away and so
I told my world to go away and she did.

--- Instrumental ---

What makes a man think that he can turn his world away
To wander through a world that's new and then return someday
To the one he knew was good and true the one he loved at home
I ask my world to take me back but she won't.

This world's not big enough for both of us so one of us must go
My mem'ry burns with unkind words I said
This world's not big enough so one of us must break away and so
I told my world to go away and she did...
