• sitting on the roof of the world

    I climbed a mountain
    Not knowing that I had
    Thought it was just a road from a to b
    I took no protection
    Not much of anything
    Just went as I was
    Looking in windows
    And playing songs
    And knocking on doors
    And I was not scared
    I just enjoyed the sights
    Kept myself to myself

    There I was
    Sitting on the roof of the world
    There I was
    There I was
    Not knowing how I got there
    Or how to leave

    Everyone says
    I was lucky to have got there
    As not many can
    But truth be told
    I was saved
    By the love
    Of a good man
    Who came and got me
    And bought me down
    From on
    Up there
    Id be lying if I didnt say
    I missed it now and then
    But I have no wish to go back there

    There I was
    Sitting on the roof of the world
    There I was
    With all the gods
    Not knowing how I got there
    Or how to leave

    People say
    Whats so special about being back here
    With everyone so close
    But thats the point
    I dont want to be different
    I just want to fit in

    There I was
    There I was
    Sitting on the roof of the world
    There I was
    With all the gods
    Not knowing how I got there
    Or how to leave
