I WONDER
Patty Griffin


Here goes everything down to the wire

I'm gonna sing like a canary on fire

and the world won't stop, but maybe you will stay

I apologize for rocking the boat

But my heart gets caught on those lumps in my throat

And these word just miss my lips somewhere along the way


You and me, we got no more illusions

wildcards or shadows of a doubt

But the end ain't a foregone conclusion

Oh baby can we live without illusions


Our long shadows cast here in the moonlight

cross the lawn and fade from our sight

and the world beyond is turning like a wheel

Every step we take is out of the past.

Everybody says "Darling, we won't last."

But they don't know what we know or feel what we feel


You and me, we got no more illusions

wildcards or shadows of a doubt

But the end ain't a foregone conclusion

Oh baby can we live without illusions


I can't pretend that the sparks are still flying

or the ember is burning stronger

At least by now I might be getting real good at trying

Can we try a little longer?


You and me, we got no more illusions

wildcards or shadows of a doubt

But the end ain't a foregone conclusion

Oh baby can we live without illusions
