Beautiful Hum

Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?

by Small Mercies

on Beautiful Hum (2008)

You were everything I thought I was looking for
Like a diamond on a rainbow without a flaw
I gave you my own eyes so you could see it all
And everything was as it seemed, now I'm not so sure
No, I'm not so sure

'Cause where were you when the world stopped turning
Where were you when I lost all I become
Where were you when I felt these burdens
Weighing down on me

Where were you when the world stopped turning
Where were you after all things said and done
Where were you when I knew for certain
It's got the best of me

This was so much more than love, we did perfectly
I would have tasted the apple, fallen from temptation's tree
I gave you my own heart so you could live through me
But how was I to ever know, I was so naive
Yeah, I was so naive

'Cause where were you when the world stopped turning
Where were you when I lost all I become
Where were you when I felt these burdens
Weighing down on me

Where were you when the world stopped turning
Where were you after all things said and done
Where were you when I knew for certain
It's got the best of me

Where did we go wrong
Where, where did we go wrong, yeah
Where did we go wrong, yeah

You were everything I thought I was looking for
And everything was as it seemed, now I'm not so sure
No, I'm not so sure

'Cause where were you when the world stopped turning
Where were you when I lost all I become
Where were you when I felt these burdens
Weighing down on me

Where were you when the world stopped turning
Where were you after all things said and done
Where were you when I knew for certain
It's got the best of me

Was it the song you were looking for? Yes 🎊

Yes I've looked everywhere for this song but no matter how I googled the Alan Jackson song just flooded the searches and made it impossible to find. Thank you
