  • She's blood, flesh and bone
    No tucks or silicone
    She's touch, smell, sight, taste, and sound
    But somehow I can't believe that anything should happen
    I know where I belong and nothing's gonna happen, yeah

    'Cause she's so high
    High above me, she's so lovely
    She's so high
    Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite
    Da-da-da, da-da
    She's so high
    High above me

    First class, fancy free
    She's high society
    She's got the best of everything
    What could a guy like me ever really offer?
    She's perfect as she can be, why should I even bother? Ah-ha

    'Cause she's so high
    High above me, she's so lovely
    She's so high
    Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite
    Da-da-da, da-da
    She's so high
    High above me

    She comes to speak to me
    I freeze immediately
    'Cause what she says sounds so unreal
    'Cause somehow I can't believe that anything should happen
    I know where I belong and nothing's gonna happen
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    'Cause she's so high
    High above me, she's so lovely
    She's so high
    Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite
    Oh yeah, yeah
    She's so high
    High above me Writer/s: Talmage Bachman

  • Michelle from Santa Cruz I remember a different girl in the video. She was heavier. I remember thinking how cool it was that they didn’t have a heroin-skinny mode for the video, but a full figured woman who was also beautiful. Am I missing something?
  • Joe from 49417What's the point of having wings if you still gotta take the stairs?
  • Harold from University Park, Pa@ Moto

  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaThe title originally had me thinking the song was about a stoner.
  • Hannah from Fargo, Ndthis song gets too much radio play if you ask me! I liked it a long time ago, but they were always playing it!
  • Moto from Pittsburgh, PaWho is the gal in this video?
