Stood on top of the world
New York City high above
The streets below
Where no one was around
From up here it seems
That has gone and stopped
And I cannot believe the world's
Still spinning round
Have you ever wanted to be king
Well I don't think I ever have been
So close to that feeling
Standing between
The earth and the sky
Well I won't ever forget tonight
I won't ever forget
Tonight tonight tonight
Tonight tonight tonight
Saw snow for the first time
Watched it come down white and cold
Covering up all that I could see
I've been waiting for this moment
Since I was a child
And now it's finally happening to me

    General CommentI saw them play about a week after September 11. They said this song was written about standing on top of the World Trade Center with a girl.

    General CommentThis was the song that totally got me hooked on Unsung Zeros. They have such an addicting sound I went out and bought The People Mover as soon as I could find it. Keep rocking guys!
