"Top Of The World" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
Out of the corner
Of my tired eyes
I'm not surprised
That it's now a quarter past too late
Nothing new, it's no case out of the ordinary
I'm so very wrapped around your finger this time
Oh, won't you give me awhile to unwind?

You're on top of the world
And I'm just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love's tough, are you sure?
Ain't it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
I look like a fool

You're like a splinter
Just killing me slowly from inside
The piercing winter is so much
More inviting than the stare in your eyes
One heavy cinderblock, like a rock
You're just staying, weighing, breaking me down
I'm crying out, you don't hear a sound

You're on top of the world
And I'm just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love's tough, are you sure?
Ain't it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
I look like a fool

Hope I've lost enough to win you back your prize
To put you up sky high, get your pride back to its familiar place
And I hope it's cost enough of my dear, precious time
To lift your spirits, spark your smile

You're on top of the world
And I'm just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love's tough, are you sure?
Ain't it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
I look like a fool

You break me, make me look like a fool
I am not your fool, no, no
You may be on top of the world
But I'm done playing by your rules
You're on top of the world

    General Commentthere's another version of this. at the end of the chorus there's another line, "if you're thinking i've been blinking when you're breaking the rules, don't that make you the fool." - - this song is totally addicted. one of those i put on repeat - for hours

    General Commentok this is all just a guess but what i got from this song was that she is with a man who goes out late everynight having the time of his life while she sits at home wait for him to get back. then in the chorus it says

    'You say that love's tough, are you sure?
    Ain't it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?'

    and i think this means that when she complains he says love can be hard then she questions if it really is love that they have and that she is made a fool because she used to believe it was. later it says,

    'You're just staying, weighing, breaking me down'

    which is her realising that she is better than he is. and at the very end it says:

    'You may be on top of the world
    But I'm done playing by your rules'

    wwhich is her saying that he may be happy but she isnt and shes had enough.
