I saw you sitting at the center of a circle.
Everybody, everybody wanted something from you
I saw you sitting there

I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music.
Caught you playing, praying to the voice inside you
I saw you swaying there

I don’t care what you wanna be
I go back too far; I’m in front of me!
It doesn’t matter what they say
They’re giving the game away

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future.
See it in a different light.
I can see the world tonight

I heard you listening to a secret conversation.
You were crying, you were trying not to let them hear you
I heard you listening in

Never mind what they wanna do
You’ve got a right to your point of view
It doesn’t matter what they say
They’re giving the game away - hey - hey.

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

I saw you hiding from a flock of paparazzi.
You were hoping, you were hoping that the ground would swallow you.
I saw you hiding there

I don’t care what you wanna be
I go back so far, I’m in front of me!
It doesn’t matter what they say
They’re giving the game away - hey - hey

I can see the world tonight
Look into the future
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight

Look into the future
I can see the world tonight
See it in a different light
I can see the world tonight
I can see the world tonight
