It's time we get out of here
We've been dancing down a seemingly beautiful road to trouble
Well everything feels so right
Though we know its downright wrong

Oh, you're so beautiful but i can't take...(then i can't tell what he says)

And on that day we'll say,
"Hey, baby we've made it, we're on top of the world"

On that day we'll become everything we've dreamed of for so long to be
On that day, baby.

Let's shine like the stars in a dark and dirty sky
Side by side we'll watch the perfect sunrise
We've been waiting through a seemingless endless night
Well when the sun comes up i'll be all yours and you'll be mine

And your name sounds so good when said with mine

Maybe we can run away and leave this troubled world behind
WEll, well thats a stupid, stupid, stupid thing to say
Cause we're so young but we're not foolish, honey
Surely we can wait

On that day we'll say
"Baby, we've made it. We're on tope of the world"
And on that day we'll become everything we've dreamed and longed for so long to be
On that say, baby

    General CommentFirst comment?
    i love this band. all their songs!
    this song is awesome.

    especially the part thats 3:03 into the song.
    i'ts just so beautiful

    i think its about a boy and girl. they're in a relationship.
    and basically. they're so happy together they couldnl't ask for more. they couldn't get anything ore out of the relationshp than they already have. "we're on top of the world" meaning they're so content. they couldn't ask for more.
    i think i already said that
    oh wellz
    i dont know thats just how i see this song.

    General Commenti love this song! i think the bit you missed was

    "Oh, you're so beautiful but i can't take what's not mine."

    It makes a lot more sense that way. I think its a boy and girl who want to be together but the girl has a boyfriend (and the guy might too) so they have to keep their relationship quiet. They're waiting until they can be together officially, hence the patience. They want to run away but know they should wait.

    I love the line "Cause we're so young but we're not foolish, honey, surely we can wait" and the part notetoselfis8 is talking about.

    Song MeaningThis song is definitely about two people who want to be together but can't just yet.

    We've been dancing down a seemingly beautiful road to trouble
    Well everything feels so right
    Though we know its downright wrong

    They feel guilty about their secret relationship, but it's still making them happy.

    And on that day we'll say,
    "Hey, baby we've made it, we're on top of the world"

    He's definitely referring to when they can finally be together.

    We've been waiting through a seemingless endless night
    Well when the sun comes up i'll be all yours and you'll be mine

    Again he's talking about their waiting through the tough time without each other.

    I can relate so much.
