On Top Of The World

Verse 1

If you love somebody
Better tell them why they’re here ’cause
They may just run away from you

You’ll never know quite when, well
Then again it just depends on
How long of time is left for you

I’ve had the highest mountains
I’ve had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but life keeps moving
Take it in but don’t look down

Chorus

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, hey
I’m on top of the world, hey

Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, hey
Been holding it in for a while, hey

Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world

Verse 2

I’ve tried to cut these corners
Try to take the easy way out
I kept on falling short of something
I could of gave up then but
Then again I couldn’t have ’cause
I’ve traveled all this way for something
Take it in but don’t look down

Chorus

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, hey
I’m on top of the world, hey

Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, hey
Been holding it in for a while, hey

Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, hey
I’m on top of the world, hey

Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, hey
Been holding it in for a while, hey

Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child

Bridge

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up and you make your round
But get up now, get up, get up now

Chorus

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, hey
I’m on top of the world, hey

Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, hey
Been holding it in for a while, hey

Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world
