when the world was mine lyrics – boyzone

it never rained, the sun was always shining
every traffic light was always green
there was a time when every door was open
the universe was mine..or so it seemed
ever roll was seven or eleven
that it would ever end never crossed my mind
i was flying higher than the heavens
back when the world was mine

sometimes a man can’t see
when he has it all
take a look at me
oh how he mighty fall
once i ruled the earth
once upon a time
when i had your love
when the world was mine

oh the changes i’d make if i had the power
how could i have so much and be so blind
but at least for a bright and shining moment
i had you, and the world was mine

[chorus]

once i ruled the earth
once upon a time
when i had your love
that’s when the world was mine
when i had your love
that’s when the world was mine
