  • Who's to say what's impossible
    Well, they forgot this world keeps spinning
    And with each new day
    I can feel a change in everything
    And as the surface breaks, reflections fade
    But in some ways, they remain the same
    And as my mind begins to spread its wings
    There's no stopping curiosity

    I want to turn the whole thing upside down
    I'll find the things they say just can't be found
    I'll share this love I find with everyone
    We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
    I don't want this feeling to go away

    Who's to say I can't do everything
    Well, I can try
    And as I roll along, I begin to find
    Things aren't always just what they seem

    I want to turn the whole thing upside down
    I'll find the things they say just can't be found
    I'll share this love I find with everyone
    We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
    This world keeps spinning and there's no time to waste
    Well, it all keeps spinning, spinning 'round and 'round and

    Upside down
    Who's to say what's impossible and can't be found?
    I don't want this feeling to go away

    Please don't go away
    Please don't go away
    Please don't go away

    Is this how it's supposed to be?

  • AnonymousThis song makes me cry. This really just reminds me of how much beauty there is in this world. My all time favorite song.
  • Dawn from St LouisFor me this song sums up what I hope I have given my 20 year old daughter & 18 year old son as a parent. A curiosity, excitement & joy about this world. And a security in my love for them as they move through it.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhEasy, breezy tune in a John Mayer style. Very subtle and pleasant to listen to. Timeless as well.
  • Ben from Sudbury, OnThis is one of my favorite songs because it has a very soothing tempo and rhythm. It won't make you plug your ears and I would say it rates number 5 on my favorite lists
