I've been down so low
People look at me and they know
They can tell something is wrong
Like I don't belong, well

Staring through a window
Standing outside, they're just too happy to care tonight
I want to be like them
But I'll mess it up again

I tripped on my way in
And got kicked outside, everybody saw...

And I know that it's a wonderful world
But I can't feel it right now
Well I thought that I was doing well
But I just wanna cry now
Well I know that it's a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you're here, here with me, mmm

Sometimes I feel so full of love
It just comes spilling out
It's uncomfortable to see
I give it away so easily
But if I had someone I would do anything
I'd never, never, ever let you feel alone
I won't, I won't leave you, on your own

But who am I to dream?
Dreams are for fools, they let you down...

And I know that it's a wonderful world
But I can't feel it right now
Well I thought that I was doing well
But I just want to cry now
Well I know that it's a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you're here, here with me, mmm

And I wish that I could make it better
I'd give anything for you to call me, maybe just a little letter
Oh, it could start again, oh oh

Well I know that it's a wonderful world
But I can't feel it right now
Well I thought that I was doing well
But I just want to cry now
Well I know that it's a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you're here, here with me, oh

And I know that it's a wonderful world
I can't feel it right now
I got all the right clothes to wear
I just want to cry now, cry now
Well I know that it's a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you're here, here with me, mmm

And I know that it's a wonderful world
When you're with me

    i have a little bit of a different few on this. i agree with you that he's saying you should look at the good things in the world even when you're going through a rough patch. but he's also saying that he can see those good things when that one special person is with him (: i can relate

    I luv this song by James Morrison .. and wht he's trying to put out is sometimes we get caught in bad situations and stuff. There hard to get out of but if you look behond that. then life is wonderful and its a WONDERFUL WORLD.. sometimes we cant feel it and we just want to cry but belive and look behond the broken...
