"When You're On Top" lyrics - THE WALLFLOWERS

"When You're On Top"

I need a bed - That nobody's slept in
I need some air - Nobody's been breathing
I need a thought - That I can believe in
Is this fog - Or is the building really burning

I need you now - Much more than ever
I'm making new friends - But none of them matter
Maybe now - We don't fit together
But you've got your arms around - No one but strangers

I feel fine
With the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair
I'm falling out of this sky
I'm doing better than I thought I would
But nothing's ever as good
As when you're on top

I want to wake up - And just start running
Into a ditch - Or straight up a mountain
I want to get - What no one's been getting
Make it deeper than hell - Or make it higher than heaven

I need someone - Whose price hasn't been met
When everybody's disappearing - By the minute
There isn't anyone left - I haven't met yet
Well I remember - When they hadn't gotten to you yet

[Chorus 2x]
When you're on top

Half way up - And over this rainbow
I heard a shot - Fire up from the ghetto
As I drop - I didn't think you'd follow
Just didn't know - The sky was this shallow

I need a garden - Where nothing's forbidden
I need an apple - No one's been eating
I want to start again - Back at the beginning
I had a vision - That this feeling maybe has an ending

[Chorus 2x]
When you're on top

I need you now - Much more than ever
I want to start again - Back at the beginning
