Day 75: Up On The Roof

Alright, since I am a major McLaina fan, I decided that–apart from the whole hundred days of music thing–I would be posting songs sung by Lauren and Scotty until they both reach the Final 2 of American Idol.

And, I am going to start that off with a McLaina duet entitled Up on the Roof.  This song was originally sung by James Taylor, but this version is the McLaina version shown on Idol.

This is a great example of a great duet.  And I am not just saying that because I so love Lauren and Scotty and want nothing more (in that regard) than to see them both in the Finale–as the Final 2.

I don’t need to say anything more than that.  It’s a great song sung by amazing artists with bright futures ahead of them whether they choose a solo career or become a duo.

Below are the lyrics to this song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

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 in to space

On the roof it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me

Let me tell you now
When I come home feelin’ tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
I get away from the hustling crowds
And all that rat race noise down in the street

On the roof’s the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Oh, let’s go
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 a-telling you
Right smack down in the middle of town
I found a paradise that’s trouble proof
So if this world starts getting you down
there’s room enough for two up on the roof

Up on the roof
Everyhting’s all right
Up on the roof
Oh, come on baby
Up on the roof
Up on the roof


There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling".
