Up On The Roof

This song is by Louise Goffin and appears on the compilation A Song for My Father (2007).

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space

On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
There the world below can't bother me

Let me tell you now when I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
(Up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowds
And all that rat-race noise down in the street
(Up on the roof)

On the roof's the only place I know
You just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof
(Up on the roof)

At night the stars put on a show for free
And darling, you can share it all with me
I keep on telling you

Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble-proof
(Up on the roof)
So if this old world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two

Up on the roof
(Up on the roof)
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof)

Up on the roof
(Up on the roof)
Come on, baby, let's go, let's go
(Up on the roof)

Up on the roof
(Up on the roof)
(Up on the roof)
Everything is alright

(Up on the roof)
Everything is alright
(Up on the roof)
Let's go

(Up on the roof)
Let's go, baby
(Up on the roof)
Up on the roof

Up on the roof
Up on the roof
Up on the roof
