I need a bed that nobodys slept in
I need some air nobodys been breathing
I need a thought that I can believe in
Is this fog or is the building really burning

I need you now much more than ever
Im making new friends but none of them matter
Maybe now we dont fit together
But you've got your arms around no one but strangers

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top

I want to wake up and just start running
Into a ditch or straight up a mountain
I want to get where no one been gettin'
Make it deeper than hell or make it higher than heaven

I need someone whose price hasn't been met
When everybodys disappearing by the minute
There isnt anyone left I havent meet yet
Well I remember when they hadnt gotten to you yet

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top, when youre on top

Well half way up and over this rainbow
I heard a shot fire up from the ghetto
As I drop I didnt think youd follow
Just didnt know the sky was this shallow

I need a garden where nothings forbidden
I need an apple that no ones been eatin
I want to start again back at the beginnin
I had a vision that this feeling maybe has an ending

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top, when youre on top

I need you now, much more than ever
I want to start again back at the beginnin

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top

I feel fine with the sun in my eyes
The wind in my hair, Im falling out of this sky
Im doing better than I thought I would
But nothings ever as good as when youre on top
