TOP OF THE WORLD (WAY UP NORTH)

We’ve only just begun
heading toward the sun with stars in our eyes.
You and your sweet, sweet smile, and me?
I need to be in love the way they long to be.
Close to you takes me there.
Only yesterday I said goodbye
to love, left to go it alone; play solitaire, But now
I can’t last a day without you. For all we know,
you make rainy days and Mondays go away.
You make me stay on top of the world!
Look how far we’ve come.
