For a time I fell my faith it must be hiding
Searching through the sky
Hoping to find a way, a way
To get me through the day
Wonder where I belong
Is this where I should stay

Chorus:
For a time I fell my faith it must be hiding
Searching through the sky
Hoping to find a way, a way
To get me through the day
Wonder where I belong
Is this where I should stay

Chorus:
You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
Yeah your eyes' been believing
In my life for whole new meaning
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world

It's just strange to be
It seems I've forgotten
Now I realize today I'm starting to dream again, again
Was the matter on the wane
I guess we all lose our way now and then

Chorus
You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
Yeah your eyes' been believing
In my life for whole new meaning
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world

Yeah your eyes' been believing
In my life for whole new meaning
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer

It's just strange to be
It seems I've forgotten
Now I realize today I'm starting to dream again, again
Was the matter on the wane
I guess we all lose our way now and then

Chorus
You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
Yeah your eyes' been believing
In my life for whole new meaning
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling

You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
Yeah your eyes' been believing
In my life for whole new meaning
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling
You lift me up when I am falling
You're my friend when I was calling
Now I'm on top of the world, top of the whole outer world

    I believe that this song is about friendship and describing how we can change with a friendly hand upon us from our friend. As they say, a friend in need is a friend indeed :)
