Rachael MacFarlane – Up On The Roof lyrics

When this old world starts gettin' 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 won't bother me
So when I come home feeling tired and beat
I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet

I'll get far away from the hustlin' crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street
On the roof that's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Up on the roof

[Guitar bridge]

At night the stars put on a show for free
And darlin' you can share it all with me

I keep telling you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble proof
And if this world starts gettin' you down
There's room enough for two up on the roof

Up on the roof
Up on the roof
