lyrics:
=======
       verse one:
every face, even the one you saw yesterday
it looks different today, cos everything's changed since yesterday
in every possible way, things seem different today
not like yesterday

       bridge:
is consideration more like an acception of consideration?

       chorus one:
cos you have the world in your arms tonight
and what if you held the world in your arms?

       verse two:
when you're secure, do you feel much safer?
when days never change, and it's three years later
it's like your life hasn't changed,
and it's three years late
how does it feel, to be three years late?
and watching your youth drift away
what seems different, seems different today
and what seems different, seems different today

       bridge:
is consideration more like an exception of consideration?

       chorus two:
cos you have the world in your arms tonight
and what if you held the world in your arms?
you held the world in your arms tonight
and what if you held the world in your arms?
tonight
tonight

       chorus three:
cos you held the world in your arms tonight
and what if you held the world in your arms?
cos you held the world in your arms tonight
and what if you held the world in your arms?
