On Top of the World was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki performed by Edsilia Rombley, who had previously represented the country in the 1998 contest.

The song is an up-tempo, RnB-inspired number. Rombley begins by telling her lover that she has been "trying to let you go", but finds this impossible. She wonders whether they are "making the same mistake", but decides to give him another chance on the condition that he promises never to break her heart again.

As the Netherlands had not qualified for the final at the previous Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed tenth, following Moldova and preceding Albania. At the close of voting, it finished in 21st place, thus failing to qualify for the final.

Lyrics

I’ve been trying to let you go
And I thought I was strong
But your love’s got a hold on me
And now I can’t move on

Are we making the same mistake?
Have we learned from the past?
Could this be our second chance
The one that’s gonna last?

On top of the world, I’m reaching out
On top of the world, I sing out loud
Just promise to never break my heart
I’ll give you forever

On top of the world, just you and I
So promise to never say goodbye
Now I know, we are forever more

People may come and go
But I need you to stay
Deep within, I have always known
That we would find a way

On top of the world, I’m reaching out
On top of the world, I sing out loud
Just promise to never break my heart
I’ll give you forever

On top of the world, just you and I
So promise to never say goodbye
Now I know, we are forever more

I know we’ve tried it all before
It will be better now, I’m sure
I’ve been so blind, you make me see
How strong I am when you’re with me

Say your love is here to stay
Need you more every day

(On top of the world, I’m reaching out) Hey…
(On top of the world, I sing out loud)
Just promise to never break my heart
I’ll give you forever

On top of the world, just you and I
So promise to never say goodbye
Now I know, we are forever more
Yeah… now I know, we are forever more
