I hear a heartbeat
It's ringing out across the universe

It sounds so lost and lonely

Must come from somewhere deep inside of us.
And the operator says:
AII is calm and all is quiet

Close your eyes and sleep tonight.
This is the world calling
This is earth

This is the world calling
This is us.

I'm on a train now

I'm moving through the yellow fields of rape

There's so much beauty

I wished that I believed enough to pray.
Then the operator replies:
Spinning 'round
You're wrapped in blue

There's no one looks as good as you.
This is the world calling
This is earth

This is the world calling
This is us

This is the world calling
This is us
And it goes on and on.

What we're going to do because we can't go on

What we're going to do because we can't go on

Wrap me in your arms and keep me warm tonight.

What we're going to do because we can't go on
. . .
This is the world calling
This is earth

This is the world calling
This is us

This is the world calling
This is earth

This is the world calling
God help us

And it goes on and on and on.

All is calm and all is quiet

Close your eyes and sleep tonight -
This is the world calling -
All is calm and all is quiet

Close your eyes and sleep tonight -
This is the world calling -
All is calm and all is quiet

You look beautiful for tonight -
This is the world calling

This is the world calling -
Spinning 'round
You're wrapped in blue

There's no one looks as good as you -
This is the world calling
All is calm
All is quiet -
This is the world calling - close your eyes -
This is the world calling.
