Patty Griffin Top of the World Lyrics

Last updated: 12/02/2005 10:00:00 AM

I wished I was smarter
I 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
But That won't happen now
That won't happen now

There's a whole lot of singing
That's never gonna be heard
Disppearing every day
Without so much as a word
Somehow

I think I broke the wings
Off that little songbird
She's never gonna fly
To the top of the world Now
To the top of the world

I don't have to answer
Any of these questions
Don't have no God 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's never gonna be heard
Disappearing every day
Without so much as a word
Somehow

I think I broke the wings
Off a little songbird
She's never gonna fly
To the top of the world
Now
To the top of the world

I wished I'd had known you
I Wished I had shown you
All of the things I
Was on the inside
But I'd pretend to be sleeping
When you'd come in in the morning
To whisper goodbye
Go work in 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
Somehow

I Wanna grab a hold
Of that little songbird
Take her for a ride
To the top of the world
Right now
To the top of the world
