higher ground lyrics – alexz johnson

i’ve been crawling
to the mountains
skinned my knees with blood and hope
if i stayed standing
i’d be drowning
the rising waters made me choke

as i am getting nearer
my mission is coming clear

i know this road
never seen it before
i know what lies behind unopened doors
i saw the signs from the distant sh*r*
that i couldn’t ignore…

i’m heading for higher ground

i left everyone behind me
i took everything i know
half way up and i’m still climbing
still a million miles to go

the water is drawing nearer
as everything disappears

i know this road
never seen it before
i know what lies behind unopened doors
i saw the signs from the distant sh*r*
that i couldn’t ignore…

i’m heading for higher ground

and my foot slips
but i don’t quit
and my hand grips the rock
something pulls deep
from within me
til i get there, i won’t stop

i know this road
never seen it before
i know what lies behind unopened doors
i saw the signs from the distant sh*r*
that i couldn’t ignore

i know this road
never seen it before
i know what lies behind unopened doors
i saw the signs from the distant sh*r*
that i couldn’t ignore

i’m heading for higher, higher ground

way up here, the air is thin
feels like i could go so far
