The sun is shining on me, finally. Finally. And you walk so gracefully. Why don't you walk with me? Things are turning green and changing, and it smells sweet. Birds have come from out at sea, and they sing for you and me. Time here is always so slow, but summer's fast. Let's make it last. Maybe this year you could stay, and we'll wake together every day. Sometimes it gets so lonely up here on the top of the world.

    General CommentAnother awesome one. I see many of the same commenting crew on each IHM track meaning. I'm enjoying it.

    Make your private place in the world your metaphor: on top of everything else. Nothing can get to you, regardless of anything else. Asking someone to join you would be you bringing them into your world.

    What a warm feeling of commitment longing.

    General CommentWhere does the last line come from? I still haven't heard a version where they sing "sometimes it gets so lonely up here on top of the world."
