The Greatest Lyrics Meanings
by James Blunt


The Greatest Lyrics

Too much to say
Too much to lose
I get frustrated thinking 'bout the world I brought you to
It's a battle of time
That I have with you
But don't decide the how, the when or if we'll make it through

I feel that you deserve a chance to know the truth and to be better than
The ones who came before you only to let pride and money weaken them

So be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause the world is standing waiting for someone to come and change it
Yeah, be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause we need a soul to save us
Need someone to be the greatest

So many words
Veiling the truth
The others turning and it's time for us to choose
And people will try
To take you down too
But if I was a betting man, I'd put all my money on you

I know that I have nothing left to give to you to make you better than
The man I failed to be, the friends and father that I know I should have been

So be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause the world is standing waiting for someone to come and change it
Yeah, be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause we need a soul to save us
Need someone to be the greatest

Nobody knows what to say (oh no)
Nobody shows you the way (oh no)
Some times it's hard to see
Who you're gonna be

So be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause the world is standing waiting for someone to come and change it
Be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause we need a soul to save us
Need someone to be the greatest
Be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause the world is standing waiting for someone to come and change it
Be the young, the brave, the powerful
'Cause we need a soul to save us
Need someone to be the greatest love
