The HormonautsThe Hormonauts – Top Of The World lyrics
Singin my heart out in the evening rain,
An all-weather seranade on Ashton Lane,
Made enough money for a ticket on a southbound train,
A second-hand guitar and a stolen rucksack,
All I thought I needed was all I could pack,
I said see you later even though I knew I wasnt comin back.
So if I sing you a Jimmy Cagney quote,
Sing it through my teeth with a lump in my throat,
I hope you know,
That even though,
I live a thousand miles from home,
Im on top of the world.
I might be livin in a bus but its by the sea,
And when the sun beats down its over thirty degrees,
There aint a single day when I dont look about and think lucky me.
I drive a beat-up van and not a fast sports car,
Cause I spent my money on a flashy guitar,
Ive come a long way even though I had to go this far.
