brand new world lyrics – cowboy junkies

mouths to feed, shoes to buy
rent to pay, tears to dry
brand new world
i can’t relate
let us choose
to not partic*p*te

open up
let me wander in
your heart is not
such a tender thing
brand new world
i contend
only love

will stop the withering

oh, to lie in wait
as the shadows and the shapes
spill across the walls
like a river
in spate

four am
dark reality
brand new world
and my heart
is missing
