Paroles de My Own Little World de Matthew West 
Couplet 1 :

In my own little world it hardly ever rains
I’ve never gone hungry or always felt safe
I got some money in my pocket
Shoes on my feet
In my own little world
Population me

I try to stay awake
Through the Sunday morning church
I throw a twenty in the plate
But I never give ’til it hurts
And I turn off the news
When I don’t like what I see
It’s easy to do when it’s
Population me

Refrain :

What if there’s a bigger picture
What if I’m missing out
What if there’s a greater purpose
I could be living right now
Outside my own little world

Couplet 2 :

Stopped at the red light, looked out my window
Outside the car, saw a sign,
Said “Help this homeless widow”
Just above this sign was the face of a human
I thought to myself,
“God, what have I been doing?”
So I rolled down my window
And I looked her in the eye
Oh how many times have I just passed her by
I gave her some money then I drove on through
In my own little world there’s
Population two

Pont :

Start breaking my heart for what breaks Yours
Give me open hands and open doors
Put Your light in my eyes and let me see
That my own little world is not about me
