Top Of The World Lyrics

I wished I was smarter
Wished I was stronger
I wished I loved Jesus
The way 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 singing
That's never gonna be heard
Disappearing 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 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'd 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 that 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
Wished I had shown you
All of the things I
Was on the end side

But I'd pretend to be sleeping
When you'd come in in the morning
To whisper goodbye and go to 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?

Gonna 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

Top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
