Listen,
I can hear the voice
I need a helping hand,
Just to beat the void

I need a mission,
A dream, to stop me talking to myself
And now the silence is broken,
And my soul is to sell
I need to pick up the pieces,
To scatter to the wind
Hold the city to your ears,
You can hear the wind come in

You can't change the world with a song
And you can't make it right when it's wrong

I can't stop this music traveling 'round with me
Wherever I go, it's playing for you
I can't stop this voice unraveling 'round me
Whatever I do, it's talking to you
The world dances to the rhythm of its own
Heart beating for you, however you lose
So speak to me
Believe, believe, believe me

Don't let it slip
Through your fingertips
When there's a ghost,
Don't try to reason with it
'Cause now I'm tired, I'm wired,
So I won't miss a thing
I rope my words up to dry
And I've forgotten what to sing

But you can't change the world with a song
And you can't make it right when it's wrong

I can't stop this music traveling 'round with me
Wherever I go, it's playing for you
I can't stop this voice unraveling 'round me
Whatever I do, it's talking to you
The world dances to the rhythm of its own
Heart beating for you, however you lose
So speak to me
Believe, believe, believe me

If that's what it was to you,
Then that's what it was to me
If that's what it was to you,
Then that's what it was to me
If that's what it was to you,
Then that's what it was to me

But you can't change the world with a song
You can't make it right when it's wrong

I can't stop this music traveling 'round with me
Wherever I go, it's playing for you
I can't stop this voice unraveling 'round me
Whatever I do, it's talking to you
The world dances to the rhythm of its own
Heart beating for you, however you lose
So speak to me
Believe, believe, believe me
