Billy Strings - This Old World Lyrics


Well there’s nothing worse than feeling
Like you’re first in line for losing
I thought my life was cruising then it crumbled all away
I had a lot to give but what I gave should be forgotten
Unnoticed like a stranger I’ll surrender for the day

Well this night was an illusion
It came down like an intrusion
I stay up through the night though
I can’t stand it sinking low
I’m a witness to the fight between
The darkness and the light
You’re a mean old world I’m leaving though
I have no place to go
You’re a mean old world I’m leaving though
I have no place to go

This old world took me for a ride
I lost everything I had and then my pride
So much that I don’t know, but I guess I’m set to go
And this old world she took me for a ride

I was raised when I saw ugliness
To try to make some beauty
Found purpose in the duty when
I couldn’t find the shore
What beauty couldn’t lift just simply floated on adrift
Rolling on directionless and lost forevermore

It goes from bad to worse sometimes
Before it can get better
I string some words together and
Just try to speak the truth
I have a lot to get, I hope my lot will be forgiven
Pardon me for living for the time I’m here with you
Pardon me for living for the time I’m here with you

This old world took me for a ride
I lost everything I had and then my pride
So much that I don’t know, but I guess I’m set to go
And this old world she took me for a ride

When I lay my body down I’d like to
Feel the dirt beneath me
And the howling wind could sheath me and
I’d finally be set free
For a moment you can yawn and
Throw my things into a pile
My dawn is finally here and
Yours might come in just a while
My dawn is finally here and
Yours might come in just a while

This old world took me for a ride
I lost everything I had and then my pride
So much that I don’t know, but I guess I’m set to go
And this old world she took me for a ride
This old world she took me for a ride
