Your love, lifting me higher 
Than I've ever been lifted before
So keep it it up
 Quench my desire 
And I'll be at your side, forever more

You know your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on lifting (love keeps lifting me)
 Higher (lifting me)
 Higher and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on (love keeps lifting me)
 Lifting me (lifting me)
 Higher and higher (higher)
Now listen 

Now once, I was down hearted 
Disappointment, was my closest friend
But then you, came and it soon departed 
And you know he never  Showed his face again 

That's why your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on lifting (love keeps lifting me)
 Higher (lifting me)
 Higher and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on (love keeps lifting me)
 Lifting me (lifting me)
 Higher and higher (higher)

I'm so glad, I've finally found you
Yes that one, in a million girls
And I whip, my loving arms around you
I can stand up, and face the world 

Let me tell ya, your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on lifting (love keeps lifting me)
 Higher (lifting me)
 Higher and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps lifting me)
Keep on (love keeps lifting me)
 Lifting me (lifting me)
 Higher and higher (higher)

Now sock it to me
Hold me, ... the other woman
Keep my love going  Higher and higher 
I said keep on lifting 
Lift me up mama
Keep on lifting me
 Higher and higher
