Higher Ground

 

(K. Cummings - M. Blatt)

YouŽve been my inspiration
And IŽve loved you or so long
And in my times of desperation
I was weak and your love made me strong

So in those times when you canŽt stop
The rain from falling
When you raise your voice
And think, no one hears you calling
When you need someone
And you think youŽve looked everywhere
You better think again
`Cause IŽll be there

IŽll be standing on higher ground
When the waterŽs getting deep
And thereŽs no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
IŽll be there for you I will care for you
I swear to you I wonŽt let you down

Higher ground is the place I found
Through the love you gave me
When I was down

(And) the highest part in every heart
Is when you give to someone else
Without thinking of yourself

IŽll be standing on higher ground
When the waterŽs getting deep
And thereŽs no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
IŽll be there for you I will care for you
I swear to you I wonŽt let you down

And in my times of desperation
When I was weak your love made me strong
So in those times when you canŽt stop
The rain from falling
When you raise your voice
And think, no one hears you calling
When you need someone
And you think youŽve looked everywhere
You better think again
`Cause IŽll be there

IŽll be standing on higher ground
When the waterŽs getting deep
And thereŽs no one else around

I`ll be standing on higher ground
IŽll be there for you I will care for you
I swear to you I wonŽt let you down

These hands were made to help you
Just to touch you and to give
All the love that youŽve been giving me
And in my heart is where you live
