Cadd9 G Cadd9 G

Cadd9                        G
I climbed a mountain, not knowing that I had
       Cadd9                         G
thought it was just a road from a to b
 Cadd9                 G
I took no protection, not much of anything
    Cadd9       G
just went as I was
 Cadd9              G
Looking in windows and playing songs
      Cadd9       G
and knocking on doors
Cadd9                G
I was not scared, I just enjoyed the sights
      Cadd9       G
kept myself to myself

      Cadd9 G
There I was
 Cadd9                       G
sitting on the roof of the world
       Cadd9          G
There I was, there I was
     Cadd9                      G
not knowing how I got there or how to leave

Cadd9 G Cadd9 G

  Cadd9               G
Everyone says I was lucky to have got there
  Cadd9      G
as not many can
    Cadd9                 G
But truth be told I was saved
       Cadd9       G
by the love of a good man
Cadd9                  G
Who came and got me and bought me down
    Cadd9    G
from on up there
       Cadd9                     G
I'd be lying if I didn't say I missed it now and then
              Cadd9             G
but I have no wish to go back there

      Cadd9 G
There I was
 Cadd9                       G
sitting on the roof of the world
       Cadd9               G
There I was, with all the gods
     Cadd9                      G
not knowing how I got there or how to leave

 D/F#   Em              Bm               Cadd9
People say "what's so special about being back here
        G
with everyone so close"
     D/F#       Em             Bm          Cadd9
But that's the point, I don't want to be different
         G
I just want to fit in

       Cadd9          G
There I was, there I was
 Cadd9                       G
sitting on the roof of the world
       Cadd9               G
There I was, with all the gods
     Cadd9                      G
not knowing how I got there or how to leave
