High Enough

  • I don't want to hear about it anymore,
    It's a shame I've got to live without you anymore.
    There's a fire in my heart,
    A pounding in my brain, it's driving me crazy.

    We don't need to talk about it anymore.
    Yesterday's just a memory; can we close the door?
    I just made one mistake,
    I didn't know what to say when you called me baby.

    Don't say goodnight,
    Say you're gonna stay forever,
    Oh, whoa, all the way.

    Can you take me high enough
    to fly me over yesterday?
    Can you take me high enough?
    It's never over and yesterday's just a memory,
    Yesterday's just a memory.

    And I don't want to live without you anymore.
    Can't you see I'm in misery?
    And you know for sure
    I would live and die for you
    And I'd know just what to do when you call me baby.

    Don't say goodbye
    Say you're gonna stay forever,
    Oh, whoa, all the way.

    Can you take me high enough
    Can you fly me over yesterday?
    Can you take me high enough?
    It's never over and yesterday's just a memory.

    I was running
    I was running for the door
    The next thing I remember
    I was running back for more
    Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Don't say goodbye
    Say you're gonna stay forever,
    Oh, whoa, all the way, all the way,
    Come all the way, yeah.

    Can you take me high enough
    Can you fly me over yesterday?
    Can you take me high enough?
    It's never over, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

    Can you take me high enough
    Won't you fly me over yesterday?
    Can you take me high enough?
    It's never over, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

  • Nathalie from CaliI've loved this song since the day it first came out. While many songs speak to me and my relationship with my man, this is the one that hits home. It's almost like the boys looked into the future back then...
  • Della from CanadaOne of my favorite ballads, and the hair, gotta love the hair!
  • William from Reno, NvThat is the same model they used for "Where you goin now". I wonder if she's someone's squeeze. That's NOT Shemaine Nugent. She's not tall enough. K/H D
  • Andrea from Allentown, PaShaw Blades, comprised of Damn Yankees' members Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades, perform a beautiful country-and-western version of this song.
  • Andrea from Allentown, PaThis is easily one of my favorite songs of all time. To me, this song is about making a mistake and wishing to go back in time to not make this mistake. My ears hear "woe, woe, woe, woe," instead of "whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa."
  • Crystal from Warren, PaLove it
  • River from Istanbul, Turkey"I don't wanna hear about it...."
    They should of kept it that way...
  • Rachel from Augusta, KsMy absolute favorite power ballad of all time. I'm surprised there aren't other comments for it.
