THE WORLD IS ROUND

you were the last that i found
when i was seventeen
i thought the world was round
and it took me by surprise
like a shot between the eyes
how flat this all would prove
i went looking for you
down to the bottom

and i was falling
until you proved the world is round
until you proved the world is round

but you pulled me down from that ledge
said 'you haven't seen the world
and this is not the edge'
and you took me by the hand
said 'honey try to understand
how deep and round and true
i can make this for you
if you just stop falling'

'cause i was falling
until you proved the world is round
until you proved the world is round

i was falling
until you proved the world is round
until you proved the world is round

i thought a lifetime
was just a map of empty land
i was a flatline
you put a globe into my hands
you gave me something

and i was falling
until you proved the world is round
until you proved the world is round
