Sometimes the world has a load of questions
The world is near but it's out of reach

Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
The world has a way of looking at people
She loves the world, and all the people in it

Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves on a woman's hips
A world of light she's gonna open our eyes up
She's gonna hold/it move/it hold it/move it hold/it move it hold/it move it

Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so
She has got to move the world to move the world to move the world
A world of light she's gonna open our eyes up
She's gonna hold/it move/it hold it/move it hold/it move it hold/it move it

Divine to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
She has got to move the world to move the world to move the world
