Just a smile, just a glance
The present darkness
It just walked past
There's been a lot of evil
There've been a lot of sayin'
But this time I'm gonna tell it my way:
There was a town
Strange, lonely little town, they called 'The World'
A lovely, lovely little town
'Till one day a stranger appeared
And their hearts rejoiced, and the sad little town was happy again
But there were some that doubted; they disbelieved, so they mocked him
And the stranger, he went away
Now the sad little town that was sad yesterday
Is a lot sadder today...
I walked in a lot of places that he never should have been
But I know that the Messiah, he will come again
