"Anything Can Happen" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....
You could have gone off the Bloor Street Viaduct
I could have been run down in the street
You could have got botulism anytime
I could have gone overboard into the sea

Anything can happen
To put out the light
Is it any wonder
I don't want to say goodnight?

I could have been hit by a falling pane of glass
You could have had shark teeth write "finit"
We could have been nailed by some vigilante-type
In a case of mistaken identity
Obviously

Anything can happen
To put out the light
Is it any wonder
I don't want to say goodnight?

We could have been lynched and tarred and feathered
Been on a plane that crashed in flames
Could have done the neutron melt together
But here we are just the same!

You could have been daggered in the dead of night
You could have been gassed inside your car
I could have been walking in the open fields
And been drilled through the head by a shooting star

Anything can happen
To put out the light
Is it any wonder
I don't want to say goodnight?
