about

What Is This World to Me is about rediscovering life. In the wake of his own divorce, songwriter Nick Booker writes about finding himself and looking for the beauty around him even as he redefines himself. It is a song about humanity and our search for meaning in the divine, in relationships, and in the world around us. It challenges concepts of the "other" and advocates for connection in spite of our differences. It is a hopeful message to all those going through emotional trauma to hang on and find the many reasons to live.

lyrics

There's snow like a veil on my face
Filling the air on this Air Force base
I wonder what I want to be
Whatever it is I hope that I'll be free
What is this world to me?
The road calls my name all the time
I tell myself that I'm doing just fine
I want some serenity
But the path through the darkness is one I cannot see
What is this world to me?

Chorus:
This world is my home
This world has my heart
This world has a beauty I've known from the start
I am the bitterest friend

You look for the means but I know only ends
I'm living in irony
Quiet for me is the sweetest melody
What is this world to me?
I know we have beautiful souls
From the outside you can only see holes
Material travesties
Trying to identify Adonai as we bleed
What is this world to me?

Chorus

What is the Other to us?
Is it a person or is it our trust?
I am my enemy
In my own mind I have crossed some boundaries
What is this world to me?
Can't we just hold out our hands?
Together we'll find what to understand
Embrace the antiphony
Whatever we sing I know will make us free

Chorus
