The song was released exclusively as a promotional single on October 12, 2012 on Radio Disney. On August 4, 2013 the song was confirmed as the third official single by some radio stations.

Music video Edit

The music video was filmed in Griffith Park, Los Angeles and directed by Matt Wyatt. It was premiered on Bridgit's VEVO channel on November 16, 2013. The video was recorded on its own, independent of Hollywood Records. The song in the video is an acoustic version.

Live performances Edit

The song was performed on all dates of her tours, Bridgit Mendler: Live in Concert and Summer Tour. The song was featured in the twelfth season of American Idol during the episode "Charlotte Auditions". On July 23, 2013 Mendler performed the song on its official VEVO channel for 'The Hurricane Sessions'.

Critical reception Edit

The song has received generally positive reviews from music critics. The Maximum Pop Magazine said "Top of the World" is charming and catchy, the composition is solid and sweet and Mendler showed versatility. Kai from Embrace Magazine You commented that the introduction of the song is appealing and sounds like "a dramatic melody straight from a classic black and white film with legends instead of voices". He also said that the transition to a more poppy and dance beat was a good surprise. But for Kai, Mendler's high shots during the chorus make this part of the song annoying and painful. She concluded that the song was "satisfactory". Plugged In said he was falling in love with the song and remarked positively on Mendler's vocal power. Guilherme Tintel to Pop was positive and said that the song mixed soul and R & B and was combined with the composition.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
You got that fresh way of talking
It could be four in the morning
And you're making me trip
My heart skip, skip the beat

You know that this is amazing
Please tell me why you're hesitating
Let's risk it all, risk the fall tonight

[Chorus 1]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Love will take you high
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
Baby, you and I
We're born to rise
So just hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top
Sittin' on top of the world

[Interlude]
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-o-o-o-o-oh
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh

[Verse 2]
I hear the wind in the trees and
I'm weak in the knees when
You're holding me close
Got tingling toes tonight

You got me so elevated
You wanna jump, why you waiting?
Let's risk it all, risk the fall tonight

[Chorus 1]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Love will take you high
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
Baby, you and I were born to rise
So just hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top
Sittin' on top of the world

[Interlude]
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-o-o-o-o-oh
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh

Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-o-o-o-o-oh
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh

[Bridge]
I'm begging you, begging you
Got my loving hand out
I'm begging you, begging you
Got my loving hand out
I'm begging you, begging you
Got my loving hand out
Begging you (begging you)
Begging you (begging you)

[Chorus 2]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
Baby, you and I were born to rise
So just hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top
Sittin' on top of the world

[Chorus 1]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Love will take you high
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
Baby, you and I were born (yeah) to rise
So just hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top
Sittin' on top of the world

[Interlude]
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-o-o-o-o-oh
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh

[Outro]
Sittin' on top of the world
We will be, you and me
We will be sittin' on top of the world

[Verse 1]
You got that fresh way of talking
It could be four in the morning
And you're making me trip
My heart skip, skip the beat

You know that this is amazing
Please tell me why you're hesitating
Let's risk it all, risk the fall tonight

[Chorus 1]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Love will take you high
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
Baby, you and I
We're born to rise
So just hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top
Sittin' on top of the world

[Interlude]
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-o-o-o-o-oh
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh

[Verse 2]
I hear the wind in the trees and
I'm weak in the knees when
You're holding me close
Got tingling toes tonight

You know that this is amazing
Please tell me why you're hesitating
Let's risk it all, risk the fall tonight

[Chorus 1]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Love will take you high
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
Baby, you and I were born to rise
So just hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top
Sittin' on top of the world

[Interlude]
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-o-o-o-o-oh
Ooh-oh, ooh-oh, ooh-oh

[Bridge]
I'm begging you, begging you
Got my loving hand out
I'm begging you, begging you
Got my loving hand out
I'm begging you, begging you
Got my loving hand out
Begging you (begging you)
Begging you

[Chorus 2]
Take the rope and climb
Close your eyes
Hold on tight
We'll be sittin' on top of the world
You and I were born to rise
So just hold on tight

Sittin' on top of the world
We will be, you and me
We will be sittin' on top of the world
