Lyrics: I feel on top of the world, I wanna share it with you/
It's been a while girl n I know its true/
But I figure we were wrong, and now we can get along/
if we just keep singing our song/

Something like…Laaa, la laaa

It's been a minute, yes ma'am its been a while/
Cause I swear the last time that we spoke I was a child/
A baby, an infant, I've grown so much/
The difference between then and now is infinite/
End sentence, what, you thought I had more to say?/
Well I do, telling the truth, but that isn't for today/
We can hash out the details like lawyers in a court room/
One day when its raining and we're suffering from boredom/

Right now, I'm tryna pull us out the doldrums/
of this "oh you don't support me" "oh I don't support you"/
Oh we know its not true, we hold each other up/
That's why even when we break up, we talk the next day cause/
I need you n you me, truly/
Needing you in my life is like needing to breathe/
So please, let me breathe n now let me see/
What we can do about you and me becoming we/
Now we fight like we love, hard and with a passion/
It's a bad habit that we have a tendency to snap in/
We gotta watch it, be understanding, be cautious/
We don't wanna ruin second chances over being obnoxious/
No, hand lifting, fist rising, 2 AM at night fighting/
Neighbors waking, knocking on the door n then we're both silent/
That's when we laugh like oh, they don't understand/
We don't mean it like their thinking till we do it all again/

But hey, what's a relationship without something to work on?/
Although the work that we love to pursue is more likely with no shirts on/
Its ok, we close the curtains, cause this is for you and me/
Or do it like we do our fights, where the whole world can see/
Always open, always hope that our tomorrows getting brighter/
While our fights are getting dimmer and our burden getting lighter/
All I know is these days I'm heartless/ Cause I gave you mine
So your chest is where two hearts rest/
So let's all raise our glasses as the darkness ever passes/
And hope this is the last time we have to reattach, this/
Is hope for many years, and that our love will always last/ as
The time around us passes, we'll be here till the last breath/
Inhale, feel the love in my lungs/
Its only you that ever truly knows where its all from/
Everything in me is ruled by my heart beat/
I rule the whole world and still it beats ever softly/

Its you and me, king and queen on a throne that we're building/
Right now its rent and ramen, someday it'll be children/
Some day it'll homes and our family that we've grown/
and teach um love until they think its the only thing we've ever known/
We'll put the…fights behind us, some of that…life behind us/
We're moving forward with the best of the past, rewind us/
And you'll only see the best, forgive, forget and move on/
And spend that whole time singing our song…

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
