Higher Ground

Vanessa WilliamsBuy this song

Walk me over this situation 
Let the sun's light warm my face
Once again the times are changing 
Once again I've lost my way

 While the words of acient poets
Fall like dust upon my shoes  Greed has grabbed me of my vision  Turned my heart from higher truths

So take my hand and lift me higher 
Be my love and my desire 
Hold me safe, in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

I have walked too long in darkness 
I have walked too long alone  Blindy clutching fist of diamonds 
That I found were only stones 

I would trade the wealth of ages
For a warmer hand to hold
 Though the path of life is narrow 
But it leads the streets of gold

So take my hand and lift me higher 
Be my love and my desire 
Hold me safe, in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

In this world we move through shadows
 Never sure of what we see
 While the truth abides between us
Come and share the truth with me

So take my hand and lift me higher 
Be my love and my desire 
Hold me safe in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

Oh, oh
