    In my own little world it hardly ever rains
    I've 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 'til 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
    Oh, how many times have I just passed her by?
    I gave her some money than I drove on through
    And 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 could 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
    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 want to 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
