You come to the end and the light there is dimmer
The chances are slimmer of findin' your way
You find that you stay out of trouble and danger
'Cause everything's stranger than it used to be

You're a scary old place out there, world
But I couldn't be happy without you
And I swear all my thoughts are about you
The most beautiful world in the world

Well, the light can be bright there and everything right there
The end of the night there might be a big band
Or a heavenly choir or it might be the fire
But no matter what happens, I bet, it's okay

You're a scary old place out there, world
But I couldn't be happy without you
And I swear all my thoughts are about you

The most beautiful world in the world

Your mountains when you're mad
Your rivers when you're sad and those deep blue seas
I love you for your snow, your deserts down below
I love the way you wear your trees

The most beautiful world in the world
And though there are times when I doubt you
I just couldn't stay here without you

So when you get older and over your shoulder
You look back to see if it's real
Tell her, she's beautiful, roll the world over
And give her a kiss and the feel
