The rest of the world

lyrics

We’ve been lying on the sofa in the comfort of a love
That has not made us cry
Nursing this new love with the tenderness & care that you would give To a newborn child
We’ve been flying for a while on the silken wings of a love
That has not yet been tried
Oblivious and blissfully unaware whether this love
May stand the test of time

Someday at some point One of us will tell a white lie
And from that moment on, it will only go downward
But right now, there’s no such thing as the rest of the world

Look at us, we have it all and we know we should feel so lucky
Like we got a new toy
We just laugh and seize the day, How could anything go wrong?
How could it go wrong?

Someday at some point One of us will be unkind
And from that moment on, it will only go downward
But right now, there’s no such thing as the rest of the world

Even though the rains are pouring and the weather’s foul to the point of absurdity
You and I live in a bubble where the sun is never setting, where we are free

Someday at some point One of us is bound to go wild
And from that moment on, it will only go downward
But right now, there’s no such thing as the rest of the world
