    My Own Little World

    In my own little world it hardly ever rains

    I've never gone hungry, always felt safe

    I got some money in my pocket, shoes on my feet

    In my own little world: population -- me


    I try to stay awake during Sunday morning church

    I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give 'til it hurts

    And I turn off the news when I don't like what I see

    It's easy to do when its population -- me


    What if there's a bigger picture?

    What if I'm missing out?

    What if there's a greater purpose?

    I could be living right now

    Outside my own little world


    Stopped till the red light, looked out my window

    I saw a cardboard sign said, "Help this homeless widow"

    And just above that sign was the face of a human

    I thought to myself, "God, what have I been doing?"

    So I rolled down the window and I looked her in the eye

    Oh, how many times have I just passed her by?

    I gave her some money then I drove on through

    And my own little world reached population two


    What if there's a bigger picture?

    What if I'm missing out?

    What if there's a greater purpose?

    I could be living right now

    Outside my own little world, ooh, my own little world, ooh


    Father, break my heart for what breaks Yours

    Give me open hands and open doors

    Put Your light in my eyes and let me see

    That my own little world is not about me


    What if there's a bigger picture?

    What if I'm missing out?

    What if there's a greater purpose?

    That I could be living right now


    I don't wanna miss what matters

    I wanna be reaching out

    Show me the greater purpose

    So I can start living right now

    Outside my own little world, my own little world, my own little world

    I'm sure you know someone who lives in their own little world. It was me at one time.
