Dar Williams – I Have Been Around The World lyrics

Well you make my coffee and
It's only 3 A. M.
But soon I'm going far away.
And my time is almost up,
I hold my coffee cup,
We sit with nothing left to say.
And I know that soon I will be touching down
In a shining city or a mountain town.

I have been around the world,
But all that I can see
Are these moments that we have,
You're all the world to me.

Well there's always laughter
And the parties after
And a fond farewell before I go.
Leaving town, the window panes,
They flash like movie frames,
The last scene in a picture show.
But I know that I am not alone and you
Are the one that I can tell my stories to.

I have been around the world,
There's so much there to see,
And the story never ends,
You're all the world to me.

And I know there are times you think I've lost my way,
But there is no way this can be true

'Cause when I'm walking through
The door I look for you,
You're all I'm looking for.

And it's truer now than it's ever been,
I'm the lucky one that love has taken in,
I have been around the world,
From sea to shining sea,
I wish that you were here,
You're all the world to me.

I have been around the world,
From sea to shining sea,
And now I'm heading home,
You're all the world to me.
