When I Look At The World

This song is by Lucinda Williams and appears on the album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone (2014).

I've been out of luck, I've been talked about
I've been locked up, I've been shut out
I've had some bad dreams, I've been filled with regret
I've made a mess of things, I've been a total wreck
I've been disrespected, been taken for a ride
I've been rejected and had my patience tried

But then I look at the world and all its glory
I look at the world and it's a different story
Each time I look at the world

I've been used and I've been blue
I've been abused, have been lied to
I've been left behind, I've been misunderstood
I've been out of my mind and not feeling good
I've been lost, I've been turned away
I've paid the cost and there's been hell to pay

And I look at the world and all its glory
I look at the world and it's a different story
Each time I look at the world

I've been unforgiven, I've been let down
I've had the truth hidden, I've been kicked around
I've been wasted, I've been on the brink
I've had my faith tested and my spirit sink
I've been unwelcome, I've been unloved
I've been cheated on and made a fool of

But then I look at the world and all its glory
I look at the world and it's a different story
Each time I look at the world
In all its glory I look at the world
And it's a different story
Each time I look at the world
Each time I look at the world
Each time I look at the world
