TOP OF THE WORLD
Patty Griffin


I wished I was smarter

Wished I was stronger

I wished I loved jesus

The way the my wife does


I wished it'd been easier

Instead of any longer

I wished I could've stood

Where you would've been proud

That won't happen now

That won't happen now


There's a whole lot of sinners

That ain't gonna be heard

Disppearing every day

Without so much as a word

Somehow


I'm afraid I broke the wings

Off that little songbird

And she's never gonna fly

To the top of the world How

To the top of the world


I don't have to answer

Any of these questions

Don't have no guide to

Teach me no lessons


I come home in the evening

Sit in my chair

One night they called me for supper

But I never got up

I stayed right there

In my chair


There's a whole lot of singing

That ain't gonna be heard

Disappearing every day

Without so much as a word

Somehow


I think I broke the wings

Off a little songbird

And she's never gonna fly

To the top of the world

How

To the top of the world


I wished I'd had known you

Wished I had shown you

All of the things I

Was all these are

But I'd pretend to be sleeping

When you'd come in in the morning

To whisper goodbye

Go work at the rain

I don't know why

Don't know why


Cause everyone's singing

We just wanna be heard

Disappearing every day

Without so much as a word

So how?


Gonna grab a hold

Of that little songbird

And take her for a ride

To the top of the world

Right now

To the top of the world
