CAPO 8 
 
INTRO: G  D Dsus D  Em  C  
 
VERSE: 
               G                       D 
I wished I was smarter, I wished I was stronger 
             Em                      C  
I wished I'd loved jesus, The way my wife does 
                   G                      D  
I wished it'd been easier, Instead of any longer 
                    Em                             C    
I wished I could've stood, Where you would've been proud 
                  G                      D  
That won't happen now, That won't happen now  

                 C                                 D 
There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard 
     Em                            C                   G    
Disappearing every day, Without so much as a word, Somehow  
      C                                D 
And I think I broke the wings off that little songbird 
      Em                     C                 G 
She's never gonna fly to the top of the world, now  
                  D        
To the top of the world       
 
VERSE: 
                    G                  D  
I don't have to answer ,Any of these questions 
              Em                   C  
Don't have no guide to teach me no lessons 
                   G                  D  
I come home in the evening, Sit in my chair 
                             Em        
One night they called me for supper 
                C            G   
But I never got up, I stayed right there 
      D     
In my chair 

                 C                                 D 
There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard 
     Em                            C                   G    
Disappearing every day, Without so much as a word, Somehow  
      C                                D 
And I think I broke the wings off that little songbird 
      Em                     C                 G 
She's never gonna fly to the top of the world, now  
           D                                  Em    C   
To the top of the world, Oooh  ooohh      
      
VERSE: 
                 G                            D 
I wished I'd had known you, I wished I had shown you 
           Em                  C 
All of the things I was on the inside  
                      G          
But I'd pretend to be sleeping  
                          D  
When you'd come in in the morning 
           Em                         C 
To whisper goodbye and go work at the rain 
             G               D 
I don't know why, Don't know why 
 
CHORUS: 
 
      C                          D 
Cause everyone's singing we just wanna be heard 
     Em                            C                   G    
Disappearing every day, without so much as a word, Somehow  
      C                         D  
And I wanna grab a hold of that little songbird 
    Em                         C     
And take her for a ride to the top of the world 
      G                      D   
Right now, To the top of the world  
 
   Em        C   
Whoaaaa ohhhhhhhhh 
                  Em   
To the top of the world  
                  C 
To the top of the world  
                  Em  
To the top of the world 
                  C 
To the top of the world   
                  Em   
To the top of the world
