Up On The Roof
James Taylor (Artist).
When this old world starts a getting me down,
and people are just too much for me to face.
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs and all my cares just drift right into space.
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be and there the world below don't bother me, no, no.
So when I come home feeling tired and beat, I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet.
I'll get far away from the hustling crowd and all that rat-race noise down in the street.
On the roof, that's the only place I know, look at the city, baby.
Where you just have to wish to make it so, let's go up on the roof.
And at night the stars, they put on a show for free.
And, darling, you can share it all with me, that's what I said, keep on telling you that right smack dab in the middle of town, I found a paradise that's trouble-proof.
And if this old world starts a getting you down, there's room
enough for two up on a roof, up on a roof, up on a roof oh now.
Everything is all right, every thing is all right. Come on.
But so do enter the night and climb up the stairs and we can see.
We got the stars above and the city lights below oh, oh, oh, oh.
Up on a roof.
