Lyrics
A little girl up on a ledge
Lookin down from on top of the world
Ready to take a step into waiting arms
To hold her as her body falls
There's a little girl lost
Somewhere on top of the world

She wants to lay her head on a pillow of clouds
And pull a blanket of sky over her head
The world spinnin and crashin into her all the time
But this time (it's her instead)
Standin on the edge
Lookin down from on top of the world

SOLO 1

She says goodbye to all the beautiful things
And closes her eyes and listens
To the water passing under the bridge - reminds her
Of the whisper of a man she was once missin'
Only in the past will time forever last
And she's gonna fly (Dweezil now say goodbye...)

SOLO 2 (Dweezil)

Little girl up on a ledge
Lookin down from on top of the world
She steps forward
And her breath connects to the sky as her body curls
She smiles as all wishes are granted - to fly
Like she does in that recurring dream.

Free.
Collision.
Shock.
She shatters, opens, becomes the river.
But for a moment, she was on top of the world.

She ends.
Like a song, we end.
