I’ve tried to cut these corners
Try to take the easy way out
I kept on falling short of something
I coulda gave up then but
Then again I couldn’t have ’cause
I’ve traveled all this way for something
Now take it in but don’t look down
‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.
I’m a big Robyn fan, and was lucky enough to have seen her in concert last February. This song is a favorite of mine – it’s so sweet and encouraging. It’s a positive little pick-me-up when I’m feeling down, and I think you all might enjoy it, too!
Hey little star, don’t be afraid,
we all fall apart and make mistakes.
Don’t you know nothing ever seem to make sense?
You put your dancing shoes on and do it again.
You know I believe it if you say you can.
-Robyn, “In My Eyes”
