Andrea Burns – Up On The Roof lyrics

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
(Up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down on the street
(Up on the roof)

On the roof's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Oh, let's go up on the roof

At night the stars put on a show for free
And darling you can share it all with me
I keep on telling you

That right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof
(Up on the roof)
So if this world starts getting you down
(Getting you down)
There's room enough for two

Up on the roof, up on the roof
Everything is alright up on the roof
Come on, baby, I just wanna be with you baby
Up on the roof, up on the roof

Everything is alright, everything is alright
Everything is alright up on the roof
