Beautiful World

from Sweet Mistakes

I was in born in a taxi cab
The driver cut the chord while the meter was running
A babies voice cryin up to city lights
The paper ran a photo next day
Me and my momma and the cabbie all smilin
And even the governor called to say

He said
Aint it the strangest world
Its wild and its dangerous
Its soft as a pearl
Bring on the changes
Aint it a beautiful world
A beautiful world

A friend of mine he took an old jetliner
He and his girl were tryin to figure out their future
They headed off on some weekend getaway
The plane got hit by a wall of thunder
The fuselage bent like a wishbone nearly breakin
He fell to his knees in the aisle and proposed that day

Aint it the strangest world
Its wild and its dangerous
Its soft as a pearl
Bring on the changes
Aint it a beautiful world
A beautiful world

I wanna be your medicine man baby
You make the call and Ill come running
Even in the middle of the night you say
Well fall asleep in your living room
A candle, a blanket and the movie
Were watchin
But I would walk thru fire just to touch your face

Cause aint it the strangest world
Its wild and its dangerous
Its soft as a pearl
Bring on the changes
Aint it a beautiful world
A beautiful world
