Wild World Lyrics

by Joan Osborne

How will we stay on the sidewalk
When there is no gravity?
Piece of paper floating upwards
But no one stops to see

And you think that I'm the right one
'Cause I know just what to say
And you ask me to convince you
That you won't blow away

In this wild wild world
In this wild wild world
In this wild wild world
By the river

Well we made them to be broken
Sorry if they let you down
Sorry if the ones you know
Are vanishing all over town

And I need someone to hold me
And I ask you to be fair
And you'd like to give me something
But we both know there ain't a lot, ain't a lot to spare

In this wild wild world
In this wild wild world
In this wild wild world
By the river

Oh are you listening
To make sure I'm still here?
Oh did you know, know
That the river burns like gasoline?

They can't turn on the rain machine
They tell me there is no more space
Won't you turn around
'Cause I hate it when I cannot see your face

In this wild wild world
Oh, in this wild wild world
In this wild wild world
By the river

Wild wild wild world
Wild world, yeah
Wild wild world
By the river
