Great pains

Your world is a beautiful world
looking better with your flag unfurled
with your flag unfurled

But it’s your world – not mine
Fine
Your world – not mine
Fine

My life is a different life
Different than yours and
even mine has been
before

And there are are scores
of wonders I have seen
to sing about,
and all the horror in between

Your world is a beautiful world
but mine is here
And I’d do detriment to both
if I would not be so sincere

It’s your world – not mine
Fine
Your world – not mine
Fine

Mine is a closer one
Nous sommes tres petits
We may not have that far to look
but you’d be surprised at what we see
