On Top of the World

i'm sittin' on top of the world again
and it looks like a long way down from here
i don't know how just how i got here my friend
or how i got so far away

i'm sittin' on top of the world again
and standing next to stars
blew a kiss towards one but she turned away
and took her heart so far away

guess she thought i'd try and blow her out
like a bitter old man with a heart of stone
but now she'll never see who i really am
just a silly boy sittin' on top of the world

i'm sittin' on top of the world again
crying out so deperately
hoping one day she'll shine near me again
before i climb back down

never can tell how long i can stay
how long i can cling to this northmost pole
how long before my heart grows tired
and i'm just another face in the world again

it's cold at the top of the world
and it's lonely without you here
without that beautiful star by my side
without her light in my world

so i'm sittin' on top of the world again
it still looks like a long way down from here
but i'm not going anywere at all
just sittin' on top of the world
waiting for a star
hope she didn't go far
how i wonder where you are...
