Artist: Thunder
Song Title: Higher Ground
I feel the wind blow on the corner
And I'm looking down along this dead end street
All the people are getting older
But they don't give a damn their lives are incomplete
It don't look no better than it did before
And I know what's happening behind each door
If I don't get out today I'm gonna waste my life away
And that's a part that I can't play

I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town
I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground
We've got to steal away

As a young boy I didn't fit in
And I knew it then I wouldn't be the same
But that was only in the beginning
And as the time rolled on deeper grew the pain
So give me one good reason why I should stay
I think I've got enough money for the late night train
There's a world you've never seen
But I've been there in my dreams
It's calling out to me

I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town
I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground
We've got to steal away

If I don't get out today, I'm gonna waste my life away
I'm gonna waste my life away
And that's a part that I can't play
