Iris, Donnie - The Best Possible World Lyrics




Oh, it's not a perfect world
Anyone can plainly see
Pick up a newspaper
Turn on the T.V.
Was a war out in the desert
Got riots in the street
Got mothers living in cardboard boxes
Their kids with nothing to eat

This must be the best possible world
Cause it bore you
Evolved from the dust
And formed of nature's Holy Rules

This must be the best possible world
Cause there you are
Shining like a diamond
Burning like a star

Oh, the lion kills the lamb
And the hunter kills the lion
Death takes the hunter
And returns him to the ground

Sometimes I just don't know
What it all means
And then I see your pretty face
See our two young children
Carrying on the race

This must be the best possible world
Just the way it is
With its war and poverty
Agony and bliss

It must be the best possible world
Cause here we are all
Shining like diamonds
Burning like stars

Some say heaven's a place so far away
Can't get there until you die
But I think heaven's going on right here
And that we're all divine

Sometimes when we're at bed at night
I'll hold you tight
And listen to your steady breathing
As I wait for first light

This must be the best possible world
Cause here we all are
You and the kids sleeping like angels
But there's demons in the yard

But me I'll hold watch every night
A footsoldier in the moonlight
So far fortune's smiled on us
And everything's all right
