Higher Ground (Barbra Streisand) sözleri

Barbra Streisand tarafından Higher Ground albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.

Walk me over
this horizon
let the sun's light
warm my face
once again the times are changin
once again i lost my way
well the words of ancient poets
fall like dust upon my shoes
greed has robbed me of my vision
turned my heart from higher truths
so take my hand
and lift me higher
be my love and my desire
hold me safe
and honor bound
take my heart to
higher ground
I have walked
too long in darkness
I have walked
too long alone
blindly clutching
fists of diamonds
that i found were only stones
i would trade the world of ages
for a warmer hand to hold
the path of light is narrow
but it leads to streets of gold
so take my hand
and lift me higher
be my love and my desire
hold me safe
and honor bound
take my heart to
higher ground
in this world
we move through shadows
never sure
of what we see
while the truth that lies between us
come and share the truth with me
so take my hand
and lift me higher
be my love and my desire
hold me safe
and honor bound
take my heart to
higher
higher ground
hmmmmm hmm hmmmm hmmmm

Higher Ground (Ub40) sözleri

Ub40 tarafından Promises And Lies albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.


Moon and stars sit way up high
Earth and trees beneath them lie
The wind blows fragrant lullaby
To cool the night for you and i
On the wing the birds fly free
Leviathan tames angry sea
The flower waits for honeybee
The sunrise wakes new life in me.

(chorus)

And every hour of every day I’m learning more
The more I learnthe less I know about before
The less I knowthe more I want to look around
Digging deep for clues on higher ground...

The fishes swim while rivers run
Thru fields to feast my eyes upon
Intoxicated drinking from
The loving cup of burning sun
In dreams I’ll crave familiar taste
Of whispered rain on weary face
Of kisses sweet and warm embrace
Another time another place

(chorus)

And every hour of everyday I’m learning more
The more I learnthe less I know about before
The less I knowthe more I want to look around
Digging deep for clues on higher ground...

Higher Ground (Amorphis) sözleri

Amorphis tarafından albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.

I climb to the higher ground
To see what's behind the sun
Step on the hands made out of clay
The hands of stained mortals

All there is and all you'll have
Bless the one who cannot cry
There is no night
There is no sunlight
Until you refuse to die

I'd let you sleep now
But i don't know how
I'd let you grieve now
But i don't know how

I chant the songs of madness
To be the chosen one
Still all these bleeding wounds
Cannot be cured by sadness

All there is and all you'll have
Bless the one who cannot cry
There is no night
There is no sunlight
Until you refuse to die

I'd let you sleep now
But i don't know how
I'd let you grieve now
But i don't know how

Higher Ground (Karen Clark Sheard) sözleri

Karen Clark Sheard tarafından albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.

[Chorus] I'm moving on, Can't nothing stop me now
I'm pressing on to higher ground
Each step I take is the new dawning of
A brand new day for higher ground

[Kim Burrell] Obstacles and situations,
People, places and things
I must overcome for there's a battle to be won

With my mind set on higher things, these things have become my footstool
I'm determined to reach my goal, I need peace for my soul oh

[Chorus]

[Yolonda Adams] I'm pressing on the upward way
Brand new heights I'm gaining everyday
No higher place that I really have found

[MaryMary] Lord, plant my feet on higher ground
Forgetting what is already behind me
I'm moving forward to what's ahead

Higher Ground (Henceforth) sözleri

Henceforth tarafından albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.

Raise your head - You're in from a bumpy ride
Catch your breath - Fill your lungs with fresh air
It will take some time until you feel alright up here...
You'll be quite fine, you've been good...
The ones you left are doing well, you feel their power as they pray
Nevermind if they cry sometimes, it's all part of the game
They know you're much better now, they know your mission was over
And after all you'll meet again, for no one ever dies...
Into Higher Ground
We all want to be
Taken to Higher Ground
Now you know you are
Climbin'up new steps
But each step at a time
Into Higher Ground
The story goes on
There'll be a time when you'll have to go back
You'll be playing a different part in the play
To learn the things you missed last time
You won't remember what you saw here
You'll meet new people
You won't realize it, but you already know them all
Into Higher Ground
We all want to be
Taken to Higher Ground
Now you know you are
Climbin'up new steps
But each step at a time
Into Higher Ground
The story goes on
It feels so good in this warm wet place
Seems like I'm waiting to go up on stage again
It feels so good in this warm wet place
Seems like I'm waiting to go up on stage again

[Chorus]

Higher Ground (Jennifer Rush) sözleri

Jennifer Rush tarafından The Power Of Jennifer Rush albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.

Oh you've been my inspiration
And I've loved you for so long
And in my times of desperation
I was weak and your love made me strong

So in those times when you can't stop
The rain from falling
When you raise your voice
And think, no one hears you calling
When you need someone
And you think you've looked everywhere
You’d better think again
`Cause baby, I'll be there

I'll be standing on higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
I'll be there for you, I will care for you
I swear to you, I won't let you down
Oh these hands were made to help you
Just to touch you and to give
All the love that you've been giving me
And in my heart is where you live
So in those times when you can't stop
The rain from falling
When you raise your voice
And think, no one hears you calling
When you need someone
And you think you've looked everywhere
You’d better think again
`Cause baby, I'll be there
I'll be standing on higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
I'll be there for you, I will care for you
I swear to you, no I won't let you down
Higher ground is the place I found
Through the love you gave to me
When I was down
Hmmm, the highest part in every heart
Is when you give to someone else
Without thinking of yourself
I'll be standing on higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
I'll be there for you, I will care for you
I swear to you, I won't let you down
I'll be standing on higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
I'll be there for you, I will care for you
Oh I swear to you, I won't let you down.

Jerry Jeff Walker

Last night I was dreaming I laying drowning in a stream
But in the light of day I see it's much more than a dream
Life is like a river that carries you on down
It's time we make like we was making tracks for higher ground

I'm always taking chances and got me by on luck
One a few and lost a few, oh had to suck it up
But I see where it's leading me, I've got to turn around
Today's the day I thought of making tracks for higher ground

For higher ground, (higher ground), higher ground, (higher ground)
You ain't going nowhere when you're always falling down
So get off on a good foot and stop stumbling around
Man I'm off and running making tracks for higher ground

Yeah, I had a friend who said he'd love to drink and run around
Wasn't anyway old mercy'd put that bottle down
Well I just heard the other day they laid him in the ground
One way or the other brother we're bound for higher ground

For higher ground, (higher ground), higher ground, (higher ground)
You ain't going nowhere when you're always falling down
You got to pick your head up, keep your mind and body sound
Man I'm off and running making tracks for higher ground

Higher Ground (Vanessa Williams) sözleri

Vanessa Williams tarafından albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.

Walk me over this situation
Let the sun’s light warm my face
Once again the times are changing
Once again I’ve lost my way

While the words of acient poets
Fall like dust upon my shoes
Greed has grabbed me of my vision
Turned my heart from higher truths

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safein honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

I have walked too long in darkness
I have walked too long alone
Blindy clutching fist of diamonds
That I found were only stones

I would trade the wealth of ages
For a warmer hand to hold
Though the path of life is narrow
But it leads the streets of gold

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safein honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

In this world we move through shadows
Never sure of what we see
While the truth abides between us
Come and share the truth with me

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

Oohooh

Higher Ground (Dan Fogelberg) sözleri

Dan Fogelberg tarafından albümünde söylenen Higher Ground adlı şarkının sözleri.


Rain keeps fallingkeeps falling down
Like it’s never going to quit
Trouble stalks this one horse town
Like it can smell the fear inside of it

Through the night the fires rage
Mixing juices ’til they disengage
Mouths get hungry and the hands reach out
Is there something we should talk about

We’ve got to head for higher ground
Good people there’s hard choices going down now
We’ve got to head for higher ground
Head for higher groundhigher ground

Shattered trusts and broken vows
Can exact a heavy toll
And in the race of heart and mind
Surethe loser is the soul

We’ve got to head for higher ground
Good people there’s hard choices going down now
We’ve got to head for higher ground
Head for higher groundhigher ground

Higherhigherhigherhigher
Higherhigherhigher

Faithless deeds for faithless times
All men are guilty of their brothers’ crimes
So few are chosenthere’s even fewer called
So few can ever read the writing on the wall

We’ve got to head for higher ground
Oh people there’s hard choices going down now
We’ve got to head for higher ground
Head for higher groundhigher

We’ve got to head for higher ground
Good people there’s hard choices going down now
We’ve got to head for higher ground
Head for higher groundhigher ground
