I thought nothing could surprise me anymore
I thought nothing could surprise me anymore
I’ve seen and done most everything before
I’ve climbed the highest mountains
I’ve sailed the seven seas
I thought nothing could surprise me anymore

I’ve seen hurricanes and forest fires and more
I’ve seen lava and volcanic ashes soar
I’ve crossed the hottest desert
And survived the deepest freeze
I thought nothing could surprise me anymore

I’ve seen the ruins and ravages of war
I’ve seen visions that have shook me to my core
I’ve seen forests laid to waste
Stripped of all their trees
I thought nothing could surprise me anymore

I’ve seen creatures that I thought were only lore
I’ve seen riches that would make a king seem poor
I’ve traveled ‘round the world
Seen all there is to see
I thought nothing could surprise me anymore

I’ve seen poverty the likes you never saw
I’ve seen gloom and doom come knocking at the door
I’ve seen troubles that were bad
As bad as bad can be
I thought nothing could surprise me anymore

I’ve seen miracles and monuments galore
I’ve seen wonders that were magic to explore
But of all the things I’ve seen
And the best surprise to me
Was when you said you’d stay forevermore

Please come and live with me forevermore
For it’s you and you alone that I adore
I’ll put my travels in the past
Clear my mind until it’s free
I want nothing to surprise me anymore

         Well, maybe on my birthday…
