I've been wrong, I had plans so big
But the devil's in the details
I left out one thing no one to love me
No one to love me, no one to love

For the want of a nail, the world was lost
For the want of a nail, the world was lost, yeah
World was lost, world was lost

Yeah, for the want of a nail, the shoe was lost
For the want of a shoe, the horse was lost
For the want of a horse, the rider was lost
For the want of a rider, the message was lost

For the want of a nail, the world was lost
For the want of a nail, the world was lost
World was lost, world was lost

For the want of a rider, the message was lost
For the want of a message, the battle was lost
For the want of a battle, the war was lost
For the want of a war, the kingdom was lost

For the want of a nail, the world was lost
For the want of a nail, the world was lost
World was lost, world was lost

I've been wrong, I had plans so big
But the devil?s in the details
I left out one thing, no one to love me
No one to love me, no one, no one to love me
I said no one to love

You're askin', "What's all this talk about horses and war?"
Put yourself in the place of the man at the forge
Day after day you live a life without love
'Til the morning you can't take it anymore and you don't get up

Multiply it a billion times spread it all 'round the world
Put the curse of loneliness on every boy and every girl
Until everybody's kicking, everybody's scratching
Everything seems to fail and it was all for the want of a nail

Tell me what else could the answer be, oh yeah
Don't hold back now
For the want of a nail, the world was lost

World was lost
World was lost
World was lost
