Bono – When I Look At The World lyrics

When you look at the world
What is it that you see?
People find all kinds of things
That bring them to their knees
I see an expression
So clear and so true
That it changes the atmosphere when you walk into the room

So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you itґs no use
I canґt see what you see
When I look at the world

When the nite is someone elses
And youґre trying to get some sleep
When your thoughts are too expensive
To ever want to keep
When thereґs all kinds of chaos
And everyone is talkinґlame
You donґt even blink, do you
Or even look away

So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you itґs no use
I canґt see what you see
When I look at the world

I canґt wait any longer
I canґt wait ґtill Iґm stronger
Canґt wait any longer
To see what you see
When I look at the world

Iґm in the waiting room
Canґt see for the smoke
I think of you and your holy book
While the rest of us choke

Tell me, tell me, what do you see?
Tell me, tell me, whatґs wrong with me
