Room At The Top

  • I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I can see everything tonight
    I got a room where everyone
    Can have a drink and forget those things
    That went wrong in their life

    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    And I ain't comin' down
    I ain't comin' down

    I got someone who loves me tonight
    I got over a thousand dollars in the bank
    And I'm all right
    Look deep in the eyes of love
    Look deep in the eyes of love
    And find out what you were looking for

    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    And I ain't comin' down, no
    I ain't comin' down yeah
    (Yeah)

    I wish I could feel you tonight
    Little one you're so far away I want to reach out
    And touch your heart
    Yeah like they do in those things on TV
    I love you please love me, I'm not so bad
    And I love you so

    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    I got a room at the top of the world tonight
    And I ain't comin' down, no
    I ain't comin' down
    I ain't comin' down Writer/s: TOM PETTY

  • Jason E from CaliforniaEddie Vedder did a beautiful rendition of "Room at the Top" at the 90th Academy Awards for the In Memoriam segment of the show. The song is about being at a place where there are no problems, no troubles, and peace of mind. The world is a jacked up place and so many things that it's been troubling humanity, such as war, political corruption, and economic meltdown. It was a great selection for the performance and to remember of the people in the movie business who left us in the last 12 months.
