On Top Of The World
[Boys Like Girls -Boys Like Girls]
“Look up, the stars are fading
And I am still here waiting
To see you again
Be with you my friend

When the moon is gone forever
I hope you’re up there somewhere
I’ll see you again
Be with you my friend

‘Cause all the roads they lead to where you are
And all the streetlights shine like they were stars
That’s where you are

Let’s spend tonight on top of the world
And we can do anything,
We can be anything
I’ll meet you tonight on top of the world
As real as it seems,
You’re only in my dreams*

Look out across the water
Faces of lonely daughters and mothers who care*
But just can’t be there*
Swear that I will see you someday*
I have to find a way
To show you I care
Even if you’re not there

So I’m following the road to where you are
(Meet you tonight on top of)
The streetlights they will guide me to the stars
That’s where you are

Let’s spend tonight on top of the world
And we can do anything,
We can be anything
I’ll meet you tonight on top of the world
As real as it seems,
You’re only in my dreams*

My heart is empty without you
Sometimes you don’t know what you do
And I need you tonight
I’ll fall asleep and it’s alright
Close my eyes and I’ll be by your side

Let’s spend tonight on top of the world
And we can do anything,
We can be anything
I’ll meet you tonight on top of the world
As real as it seems,
You’re only in my dreams

Let’s spend tonight on top of the world
(On top of the world)
As real as it seems,
You’re only in my dreams

* This song started as a romance / in love song. But later, according to Martin Johnson, lead sing and writer for BLG, the song became about a bigger kind of love.

* The song is about the love between a mother and her kid. More specific between Martin and his mom.

* Martin’s mom died when he was 16, from cancer.

* Before his mom death, he promise her that somehow they would be together again, someday. And according with what Martin says in some interviews that’s what he’s been trying to do…

* even if now the only way is with dreams.
