    probably just a slip-up somewhere down the line.

    Probably to reflect the fact that Christian had just met her, where the original lyrics implied a standing relationship.

    Chad is absolutely correct - WHILE you're in the world cannot be used with a relationship that is not even there yet, so, for Christian, she is NOW in the world, and life just got wonderful that very moment.
    Not a slipup, just correctness.

    I guess it all falls under the realm of "artistic license." They also changed the arrangement and instrumentation of all the songs as well.
