Lyrics: [ Top Of The World ]

I wished I was smarter
I wished I was stronger
I wished I loved Jesus the way the my wife does
I wished it had been easier
Instead of any longer
I wished I could have stood where you would have 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
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 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 wish I'd have known you
I wish I'd have 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 and
Go to work in the rain
Now I don't know why
I 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

To the top of the world.....
