Top of The World

Such a feeling's coming over me.
There is a wonder in most everything I see.
Not a cloud in the sky,got the sun in my eyes,
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream.
Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me.
And the reason is clear,
It's because you're here.
You are the nearest thing to heaven
That I've seen.

I'm on the top of the world
Looking down on creation,
And the only explanation
I can find is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around.
Your love's put me on the top of the world.

Something in the wind has learned my name,
And it's telling me that things are not the same.
In the leaves on the trees,
And the touch of the breeze,
There's a pleasing sense of happiness for me.
There is only one wish on my mind,
When this day is through
I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me.
All I need will be mine if you are here.

歌词大意

  这样一种感觉突然涌上我的心头,眼中所见几乎都充满神奇。天空无云,阳光耀眼,若这只是一场梦,我也不会惊讶。我理想中的世界正专为我实现,原因无他,只因你在这里,你是我所见到的最完美的天使。
  我站在世界之顶俯视红尘,我找到的唯一解释是自从认识你以后,我才找到了爱,是你的爱使我登上世界之顶。
  风中有声音在呼喊我的名字,它告诉我一切都不一样了。树上的叶子,微风的轻抚,都在带给我愉悦的幸福感。我心中只有一个愿望:当今日逝去,希望你我的明天都将一如今日。只要你在我身旁,我就能心想事成。
