about

Official video track.
Romping cajon and guitar rhythms drive this playful up-tempo track with Roma influence. Bouncing cello opens, sax and accordion join in on the fun until a conspiratorial vocal takes over, singing a self-empowerment spin on old folk lyric "you've got the whole world in your hands". Fun stomps, shouts and glass smashing recorded live. Audience favorite in concert.

lyrics

VERSE 1:
Nobody can keep me bound
without my permission
Nobody can lock me up
Without a key i give them
Nobody can build a wall
Around my heart
I'm the only one
Who can call off the guard

CHORUS:
I've got the whole world in my hands
the whole world in my hands

VERSE 2:
Everybody feels alone
It's universal
Don't hide at home
In exile
Make a wish
Everything you desire
is waiting for you

CHORUS 2
you've got the whole world in your hands
the whole world in your hands
