Saw you standing in the darkness
With your back against the wall
And your eyes looked kind of distant
Then I knew you'd seen it all

It was then that you betrayed me
'Cause I could see right through your gaze
I guess you and I
Have seen much better days

You used to be so taken
With the lifestyle of the king
Now you find love's everything

You're going to the top
You found somebody special
Now your heart will never stop
And you know I wish you well

You could've been somebody a contender
I guess that chance just passed you by
Now you can't remember who to trust
But I sure wish that you'd try

And nothing gets you nothing
And you get back what you give
You can't hold out much longer
It's time for you to live

You used to be so taken
With the lifestyle of the king
Now you find love's everything

You're going to the top
You found somebody special
Now your heart will never stop
And you know I wish you well yeah

You're going to the top
You're falling up to heaven
And now your heart will never stop
And you know I wish you well, yeah

Good things are gonna find you
Though somebody's got to pay
You could always turn your back and walk
But I sure wish that you'd stay

You're going to the top
You found somebody special
Now your heart will never stop
And you know I wish you well these days

You're going to the top
You're falling up to heaven
And your heart ain't gonna stop
And you know I wish you well these days

You're going to the top
You found somebody special
And your heart will never stop
And you know I wish you well these days

You're going to the top
And now you're someone special
And I still think of you a lot
And you know I wish you well, yeah
