"Rooftops" as written by and David A/kamin Stewart....
When our time is up
When our lives are done
Will we say we've had our fun

Will we make a mark,
This time
Will we always say we tried

Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
This is all we got now
Everybody Scream your heart out

All the love I've met
I have no regrets
If it all ends now, I'm set

Will we make a mark,
this time
will we always say we tried

Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
This is all we got now
Everybody Scream your heart out

Standing on the rooftops
Wait until the bombs drop
This is all we got now
Scream until your heart stops
Never gonna regret
Watching every sunset
We'll Listen to your heartbeat
All the love that we found

Standing on the rooftops
Wait until the bombs drop
This is all we got now
Scream until your heart stops
Never gonna regret
Watching every sunset
We'll Listen to your heartbeat
All the love that we found

Scream your heart out
Scream your heart out
Scream your heart out
Scream your

Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
Standing on the rooftops
Everybody scream your heart out
This is all we got now
Everybody Scream your

    General CommentFrom what I can tell what you wrote seems all right. (Maybe a few things I would have written differently, like "Scream until your heart stops" vs "Scream it til l your heart stops).

    Isn't this song is amazing? The way I see this, it's saying that we can't live life any better way than by following our hearts. Sometimes we get caught up in things, but the best way to leave a legacy (or a mark) is to always follow your heart.
    Or at least something like that, I can't seem to pin down a specific idea I feel really covers the song.

    General CommentTo me, it's about living life how you want with no regard (Or more approriately, disregard) for how other people percieve it. To not regret anything you do, as long as it is true to what you believe in.

    It's not a bad song, but the Prophets can certainly do better than this. Then again, this is just the single.

    General CommentIan Watkins in Kerrang! magazine "You know the scene in 'Garden State' where they're all screaming into a pit? Well, that's pretty much the whole ethos behind the song. Life can be so frustrating sometimes and you just have to scream. Where's the best place to do that? A rooftop."
