Paul McCartney got many of his best song ideas when he was on holiday, and this one came to him in 1995 when he was on vacation in America. He explained in the liner notes to the album: "The lyrics were just gathering thoughts. Like 'I go back so far, I'm in front of me'- I don't know where that came from, but if I'd been writing with John he would have gone 'OK, leave that one in; we don't know what it means but we do know what it means'

The World Tonight Lyrics. I saw you sitting at the center of the circle Everybody, everybody wanted something from you I saw you sitting there. I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music Caught you playing, caught you praying To the voice inside you I saw you swaying there. I don't care what you want to be I go back so far I'm in front of me It doesn't matter what they say They're giving the game away Hey heyyyyyyyyy. I can see the world tonight Look into the future See it in a different light I can see the world tonight
