This Old World

This song is by Andru Bemis and appears on the album Say Yes to Yourself (2011) by Elisabeth Pixley-Fink and Andru Bemis.

This old world is breaking my heart again
Trouble I thought you'd drift right out of town
But this old world is bringing me down

This boat's taking on water
As fast as I can row
I don't know that it will ever find the shore
I went to warn the captain
I tried to tell the crew
They sent me to the cynic
Who simply showed me to the door
I don't know that I shall ever see the shore
I don't know that I shall ever see the shore

When you read your morning paper
Please keep an eye for me
Boy was swallowed by the never loving sea
His boat could not be found
Because it could not find the shore
All they found was his body
And there's more
He was found with his hand upon the oar
He went down with his hands upon the oars

This old world is bringing me down again
This old world is bringing me down
This old world is bringing me down again
This old world is bringing me down

This old world is breaking my heart again
Trouble I thought you'd drift right out of town
But this old world is bringing me down
