Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm

 Oh oh oh oh oh



 Saying higher, eh


Tell me why you’re crying now, kini big deal? (Tell me why you are crying now, what’s the big deal?)

 (Higher, higher, higher, higher)

 When you gave me something I don’t really feel

 (Higher, higher, higher, higher)

 But you knew that already

 When I found you on the ground

 You were dying (higher, higher, higher, higher)

 Now you come into my yard, uninvited

 Can you see me on the edge?

 I’m enlightened (higher, higher, higher, higher)

If the world was ending

 Would you cry or would try to get me?

 Tell me now, I want you to be clear, yeah 

 Tell me now, I need you to be clear, yeah 

I will wait for you, for you

 I will wait for you

 I will wait for you

Get me

 Can you put the time on a rewind, yeah?

 Help me understand, can you tell me now?

 Why you made the war that we’re fighting now?

 (Higher, higher, higher, higher)

 And you fall and you run when you see my big guns

 Run around, run away as the rebel comes out

 Then you call, call on me when you call me I come

 But there you go again (there you go)

With your deaf ears

 Open your mind to the sound of the trumpet

 What do want from a life of the hopeless? (of the hopeless)

 Now here you are and you’re begging and crying (and your crying)

 I want to fly, yeah, I’m flying ’til morning

 Running away to the land of discovery

 Running away from the suffering, I’m gone, yeah

 Running away from the darkness, I’m out here, yeah (higher, higher)

Higher than all the limits

 Going way beyond the noise and your feelings

 When you speak all I can hear is silence

 Turning back from all the pain and violence

Big tunes, now it’s big tunes I’m killing

 Cry now from the side now, call my name

 Fall down when you see me, you know that

 You know that I won’t stay for you, you

I will wait for you for you, for you

 I will wait for you

 I will wait for you
