Everything in the World  
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
      There are planes coming in 
      And there's planes going out 
      One piece of luggage 
      Goes around and round 
      A lady cleans the floors 
      A night guard checks his watch 
      There's two lonely faces 
      And one of them's the clock 

      What crumbs of joy can I steal from this day 
      She didn't have the time to call me and say 
      If the things I'd heard were valid and true 
      I've got everything in the world but you 
      Everything in the world but you 

      I drive against traffic 
      People race in to work 
      I've got this expression 
      That I know I deserve 
      The key slides in the lock 
      Who's been here in my bed 
      Who's been drinking coffee 
      What's this paper and pen 

      My nerves are ripped to shreds 
      The phone rings on the floor 
      But I can't pick it up 
      I can't take any more 
      There are planes flying in 
      And there are planes flying out 
      I look up to the sky 
      And I'm left in no doubt
