world on a string lyrics – neil young

“world on a string”

you know i lose,
you know i win
you know i call for
the shape i’m in.
it’s just a game you
see me play,
only real in the way
that i feel
from day to day.

although the answer
is not unknown,
i’m searchin’, searchin’,
and how i’ve grown.
it’s not all right
to say goodbye,
and the world on a string
doesn’t mean a thing.

no, the world on a string
doesn’t mean a thing.
it’s only real in the way
that i feel from day to day.
no, the world on a string
doesn’t mean a thing.
