On Top of the World

Album: Boys Like Girls (2006)
  • Look up, the stars are fading
    And I am still here waiting to see you again
    Be with you my friend
    When the moon is gone forever
    I hope you're up there somewhere, I'll see you again
    Be with you my friend

    Cause all the roads they lead to where you are
    And all the streetlights shine like they were stars
    That's where you are

    Let's spend tonight on top of the world
    And we can do anything
    We can be anything
    I'll meet you tonight on top of the world
    As real as it seems
    You're only in my dreams

    Look out across the water
    Faces of lonely daughters and mothers who care
    But just can't be there
    Swear that I will see you someday
    I have to find a way To show you I care
    Even if you're not there

    So I'm following the road to where you are
    (Meet you tonight on top of)
    The streetlights they will guide me to the stars
    That's where you are

    Let's spend tonight on top of the world
    And we can do anything
    We can be anything
    I'll meet you tonight on top of the world
    As real as it seems
    You're only in my dreams

    My heart is empty without you
    Sometimes you don't know what to do
    And I need you tonight
    I'll fall asleep and it's alright
    Close my eyes and I'll be by your side

    Let's spend tonight on top of the world
    And we can do anything
    We can be anything
    I'll meet you tonight on top of the world
    As real as it seems
    You're only in my dreams

    Let's spend tonight on top of the world
    (On top of the world)
    As real as it seems
    You're only in my dreams Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON
