My Own Little World Lyrics

In my own little world it hardly ever rains
I never gone hungry, always felt safe
I got some money in my pocket, shoes on my feet
In my own little world
Population: Me

I try to stay awake during Sunday morning church
I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give till it hurts
And I turn off the news when I don't like what I see
Yeah it's easy to do when it's
Population: Me

What if there's a bigger picture?
What if I'm missing out?
What if there's a greater purpose
I could be living right now
Outside my own little world

Stopped at a red light, looked out my window
I saw a cardboard sign, said "Help this homeless widow"
And just above that sign was the face of a human
I thought to myself, "God, what have I been doing?"
So I rolled down the window and I looked her in the eye
How many times have I just passed her by?
I gave her some money then I drove on through
In my own little world reached
Population: Two

What if there's a bigger picture?
What if I'm missing out?
What if there's a greater purpose
I should be living right now
Outside my own little world
My own little world

Father break my heart for what breaks yours
Give me open hands and open doors
And put your light in my eyes and let me see
That my own little world is not about me

What if there's a bigger picture?
What if I'm missing out?
What if there's a greater purpose
That I could be living right now
I don't wanna miss what matters
I wanna be reaching out
Show me the greater purpose
So I can start living right now
Outside my own little world
My own little world
My own little world

The meaning this song has to me is it says living in my own little world that means that one Zen place that one place that you can go to be on your own and and be your self and not really have to worry about what everyone else thinks.
Sometimes you can't always see the big picture, the big idea or you know that something is missing out the one thing.

we need to start living like we can help others instead of others helping us...get out of the streets, quit protesting on your smart phone, get a job and help those that are really in a bad place.

Most of the population today only takes care of themselves and neglects everyone else. This song shows us that when we do this, we aren't hurting those we neglect, we're hurting ourselves.
