When You're On Top

When You're On Top

The Wallflowers


Or make it higher than heaven

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
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
When 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
Where no one been gettin'
Make it deeper than hell

I need someone whose price hasn't been met
When everybody's disappearing
By the minute
There isn't anyone left

I haven't meet yet
Well I remember
When they hadn't gotten to you yet

Half way up
And over this rainbow
I heard a shot
Fire up from a 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
That no one's been eatin'

I want to start again
Back at the beginnin'
I had a vision
That this feeling maybe has an ending
