Get Higher

Album: Paper Tongues (2010)
  • When you step in the room they won't be holding me down
    All these demons in my head, come on let's kill 'em with sound
    You see I'm begging that you take me and you never look back
    That's why I'm crying to a wall hoping that you come now

    I don't wanna wake up from this
    I cannot afford to forget
    The feeling of your arms, they hold me
    The power of your skin, it's lovely

    You provoke a man to bow down
    And I get on my knees and cry out
    Everything I have is yours now

    So the time is now, don't let me down
    Oh the time is now, please don't let me down

    [Chorus:]
    Get higher, and higher, and higher
    When my back's against the wall, you're the hand that breaks my fall
    Climb higher, and higher, and higher
    When my back's against the wall, you're the hand that breaks my fall

    Take me to a place for romance
    You can choose the space and for this
    I can hardly breathe, it's so deep
    My hands begin to shake with frailty

    You will not escape my embrace
    'Cause I'll be holding on with violence
    Everything I have is yours now

    So the time is now, just don't let me down
    Oh the time is now, please don't let me down

    [Chorus]

    When you step in the room they won't be holding me down
    All these demons in my head, come on let's kill 'em with sound
    You see we finally get a message that we're gonna break out
    I say we wrestle all the angels 'til they give us a crown

    You know we're gonna live forever if we hold to love
    So don't you leave me when you know that I am feeling your touch
    You see I'm begging that you take me and you never look back
    That's why I'm crying to a wall hoping that you come now

    [Chorus]

    I wait for you [x6]
    You're my fire [x2] Writer/s: ASWAN NORTH, BRIAN WEST, NICOLAS BALACHANDRAN
