Top of the World 
(click on the black spot to hear the song)
Original Version
Our Version
Such a feeling's coming over me,
There is wonder in most everything I see.
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eye
And I, won't be surprised if it's a dream.

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me.
And the reason is clear
It's because you are near
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I see.

chorus:
I'm on the top of the world
looking down on creation 
and the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's puts me at the top of the world.

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's telling me that things are not the same
In the leaves of the trees
And the touch of the breeze
There's a pleasing sense of happiness for me.

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be
Just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here.
Such a CARLOS coming over me,
There is ALLAN in most everything I see.
Not a JOHN (D.) in the sky
Got the PAUL in my eye
And I, won't be surprised if it's a CLINT.

Everything I want JOEL to be
Is now ARLAN true especially for me.
And the ELSON is clear
It's because you ARMEER
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I see.

chorus:
I'm on the top PAUL the world
looking down JOHN (V.) creation 
and the only explanation I GLENN find
Is the JOVE that I found
Ever since NICK's been around
JOEY puts me at the top OLIVER.

Something in the WINSTON learned my name
And it's telling me that CARL is not the 
same
In the GIL of MARIE
And the touch of FRANCIS
There's a HANSYL of happiness for me

There is only RICHARD on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That RODRIGO will be
Just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here.

It won't be easy, 
you'll think it strange
When I try to explain 
how I feel
That I still need your love 
after all that I've done
You won't believe me
All you will see 
is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up 
to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you


I had to let it happen, 
I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life 
down that hill
Looking out of the window, 
staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around 
trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to


Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance


And as for fortune, 
and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world 
they were all I desired
They are illusions
They're not the solutions 
they promised to be
The answer was here 
all the time
I love you and hope you love me


Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance

 

   
 Through the Years 
(click on the black spot to hear the song)
I can't remember when you weren't there
When you didn't care for anyone but you
I swear we've been to everything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Through the years
Through all the good and bad
I know how much we've had
I've always been so glad to be with you
Through the years
...?
 
The Graduation song of the Pioneers:
Time After Time 
Out back when time was still our own
We lingered long until we've known
That time's a little out of hand
And we still have some test to stand.

The mighty wind may come and go
But we're strong enough to stand it's blow
Against all odds we will not rest
With all our might we'll give our best.

chorus:
In God we trust He is our strength
The journey's long just count the length
But we will never tire you see
Cause He is there for you and me
We'll share the time through thick and thin
And in the end we'll always win.

Just look at how our future stands
In the midst of all these fertile lands
But now we have to part dear friend
And journey on until life's end.

But don't you worry don't feel sad
'Cause parting ways won't be that bad
When you will know that as we part
You'll find yourself right in my heart.

coda:
But we will never tire you see
Cause He is there for you and me.
- composed by: Lyann
We'll Never Say Goodbye 
We've shared the days of laughter 
We shared the nights of sorrow
And in the morning after
We face a bright tomorrow
Side by side we're always there
Spirits flying higher
Long as I can hold your hand
We'll never say goodbye.

We walk the halls of learning
And serve with our tradition
The flame of truth is burning
To cloud upon our vision
Look at how the future gleams
Bold against the sky
Long as I can share your dreams
We'll never say goodbye.

There's little to be sure of
But we would last forever
For know we know the pure love
We feel when we're together
Then if someday we should fall
We will not say die
Long as you are in my heart
We'll never say goodbye.

Long as you are in my heart
We'll never say goodbye.
- from the original soundtrack of Sing
