watch the world lyrics – box car racer

i watched the smoke, as it grew darker
it blew up through the roof
i watched them fled,
and saw them panic as the fire grew
i saw virginia get rid of langley
and its secrets too
i held your hand
and sat there knowing that we’d make it through

i saw this man dispose of hunger
and soap operas too
i saw this field that grew perfection
full of things you do
i saw his box get rid of heart ache
and cure cancer too
when i awoke i sat there hoping
this is what we’ll do

if we can we will leave a letter and this song
for you and we’ll write once a day
and put it through the sea to you
we’ll regret all those things
we thought of but didn’t ever do

if we can we will leave a letter and this song
for you and we’ll write once a day
and put it through the sea to you
we’ll regret all those things
we thought of but didn’t ever do
when the sky seems to clear
who will then be left but a few
me and you
