Lyrics

I need a bed that nobody's slept in.
I need some air nobody's been breathin'.
I need a thought that I can believe in.
Is this fog or is the building really burnin'?
I need you now, much more than ever.
I'm making new friends but none of them matter.
Maybe now we don't fit together.
But you've your arms around no one but strangers.

I feel fine,
With the sun in my eyes,
The wind in my hair.
We're falling out this sky.
I'm doing better than I thought I would.
But nothing's ever as good as when you're on top.

I wanna wake up and just start running,
Into a ditch or straight up a mountain.
I wanna get what no one's been gettin.
Make it deeper then hell,
Or make it higher than heaven.
I need someone whos press hasn't been mad,
When everybody's disappearing by the minute.
There isn't anyone left I haven't met yet,
Well I remember when they hadn't gotten to you yet.

I feel fine,
With the sun in my eyes,
The wind in my hair.
We're falling out this sky.
I'm doing better than I thought I would.
But nothing's ever as good as when you're on top.

I feel fine,
With the sun in my eyes,
The wind in my hair.
We're falling out this sky.
I'm doing better than I thought I would.
But nothing's ever as good as when you're on top.


[When you're on top]

Half way up and over this rainbow,
I heard a shot fire up from the games.
As I dropped 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 wanna start again back at the beginning.
I had a vision that this feeling maybe has it.

I feel fine,
With the sun in my eyes,
The wind in my hair.
We're falling out this sky.
I'm doing better than I thought I would.
But nothing's ever as good as when you're on top.

I feel fine,
With the sun in my eyes,
The wind in my hair.
We're falling out this sky.
I'm doing better than I thought I would.
But nothing's ever as good as when you're on top.

[When you're on top]

I need you now...! much more than ever!
I wanna start again back at the beginning!

I feel fine,
With the sun in my eyes,
The wind in my hair.
We're falling out this sky.
I'm doing better than I thought I would.
But nothing's ever as good as when you're on top.
