Too Much World

Words and Music by Kami Lyle

 

ItÕs just a little bit of rock

And a whole lot of sea

Where the babies come and learn

To walk and talk from watching

Fools like you and me

 

I donÕt mean to complain

But the one thing IÕd change would be

ThereÕs just too much world

In the world between you and me

  

The stars are sleeping in the sky

And a hush fills the breeze

While a moonbeam rests its fingers

On my lips as they wait

So patiently

 

For that one certain moment

When loneliness meets ecstasy

But right now thereÕs too much world

In the world between you and me

 

                              I could catch myself a star

                              And ask it for

                              Some wishing time tonight

              

                              But baby when youÕre gone

                              I donÕt even need the sky

                              I got shiny little stars

                              Falling out of my eyes

 

 

Some day a little bit of silk

And a whole lot of steam

Will be all that keeps your love from me

As you reach for me

Softly whispering,

 

ÒI donÕt mean to complain

But the one thing IÕd change would be

ThereÕs just too much world

In the world between you and me.Ó
