Top Of The World Lyrics

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

CHORUS

I wished I'd had known you
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
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
