When I Look At The World Lyrics

Artist: U2
Album: All That You Can't Leave Behind

When you look at the world
What is it that you see
People find all kinds of things
That bring them to their knees


I see an expression
So clear and so true
That it changes the atmosphere
When you walk (in)to the room


So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you it's no use
I can't see what you see
When I look at the world


When the night is someone else's
And you're trying to get some sleep
When your thoughts are too expensive
To ever want to keep


When there's all kinds of chaos
And everyone is walking lame
You don't even blink now do you
Or even look away


So I try to be like you
Try to feel it like you do
But without you it's no use
I can't see what you see
When I look at the world


I can't wait any longer
I can't wait 'til I'm stronger
Can't wait any longer
To see what you see
When I look at the world


I'm in the waiting room
I can't see for the smoke
I think of you and your holy book
When the rest of us choke


Tell me, tell me
What do you see
Tell me, tell me
What's wrong with me
