Back on Top

Album: Back on Top (1999)
Charted: 69
  • You came to see me when the moon was new
    Saw you standin' in the pouring rain
    Left my message on the window pain
    Back on the street again
    Back on the beat again
    I'm back on the top again

    Saw me climbing to the top of the hill
    You saw me meeting with the fools on the hill
    Learned my lesson and I had my fill
    Learnt it all in vain
    Went through it all again
    Now I'm back on the top again

    Always strivin', always climbing way beyond my will
    Same old sensation, isolation at the top of the bill
    Always seeming, like I'm moving but I'm really going slow
    What do you do when you get to the top and there's nowhere to go

    Just how I get there will be anybody's guess
    With all the so called trappings of success
    Left all the deadbeats on the top of the hill
    Too busy raisin' Cain
    I'm back on the street again
    I'm back on the top again

    Always strivin', always climbing way beyond my will
    It's the same old sensation, isolation at the top of the hill
    Always seeming, like I'm moving but I'm really going slow
    You'll find out when you get to the top that there's nowhere to go

    How you get there will be anybody's guess
    With all the so called trappings of success
    Left all the deadbeats on the top of the hill
    Too busy raisin' Cain
    I'm back on the street again
    I'm back on the top again

    Back on my feet again
    I'm back on the street again
    I'm back on the top again Writer/s: VAN MORRISON
