My Own Little World  Matthew West

This song has a 4/4 time signature, in the key of E. What I call an "E9" is a barre
chord on the ninth fret, as opposed to an E1, which is the standard open chord. The A2 is
a normal A played with only the pinky and ring fingers. There are three chord
progressions: one for the introduction and verses, another for an instrumental section,
and a third
for the chorus. There is a tag at the end of the second chorus, and some changes at the
end. If you have any questions, post them below and I shall try to answer. I hope
that this song is a blessing to you!
Introduction: C#m, E1, A, C#m, A, E1
[C#m]In my own little world, it [E1]hardly ever [A]rains.
[C#m]I've never gone hungry, [A]always felt [E1]safe.

[C#m]In my own little world, [A]population: [E1]me.
[B]What if there's a [A]bigger picture?
[C#m]What if I'm [E1]missing out?
[B]What if there's a [A]greater purpose?
