Cat Stevens – The View From The Top lyrics

The view from the top can be oh so very lonely
And you can be missing such a lot that could be yours

Why can't I stop forgetting myself?
Why am I always trying to be like somebody else
Why can't I love you?
Why bother flying high above you
I know where you are

The view from the top can be oh so very lonely
And you can be missin' such a lot that could be yours

And who's going to miss me?
There'll only be myself to blame
You know I'd love to hold you tight
And love you all the night
But I don't even know... My name

La la la da la....

Why can't I stop forgetting myself?
Why am I always trying to be like somebody else?
Why can't I love you?
Why bother flying high above you
I know where you are

The view from the top can be oh so very lonely
And you can be missin' such a lot that could be yours
