OUR WORLD

You need this CD/download, Heather Masse's (a Wailin' Jenny) Many Moons.

Her song, "Our World," is perfection.

OUR WORLD, HEATHER MASSE

Saw somebody that I hadn't seen in awhile
We started talking about our lives
With a week and tired smile
Cause we're all working hard at living
Trying to find out what's real
And they keep on telling us
How we should feel

These are our lives
These are our fears
This is our world
And we can choose to feel sincere

Corn is swaying along those fields
A green that never seems to end
If we keep sowing our seeds in oil
There'll be nothing left to spend

Our hearts are empty
Our pockets are full
With songs that have all been sung
It's hard to see when your eyes
Are blind to the world you're really in

These are our eyes
These are our lips
This is our song
And we can let our voices ring
These are our hearts
These are our hands
This is our world
And we can join it together again

These are our eyes
These are our lips
This is our song
And we can let our voices ring
These are our hearts
These are our hands
This is our life
And we can join
Join it together again

Just for the record, the people on this are not Canadians. Heather is from Maine/NYC and her keyboard player, Jed, is from Oregon. Her other band, The Wailin' Jennys, is Canadian.

Oh, and did I mention Heather will be on Prairie Home Companion this week? :)
