(r carpenter/j. bettis)


Such a feeling's coming over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Ev'rything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing
To heaven that I've seen

Chorus:
I'm on the top of the world lookin'
Down on creation and the only explanation
I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees
And the touch of the breeze
There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through
I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be
Just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

(repeat chorus 2x)
