Higher Ground

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Higher Ground album, and has also been released on The John Denver Collection - Rocky Mountain High album. There are those who can live With the things they don't believe in They are giving up their lives For something that is less than it can be Some have longed for a home In a place of inspiration Some will fill the emptiness inside By giving it all to the things that they believe They believe Maybe it's just a dream in me Maybe it's just my style Maybe it's juat the freedom that I've found Given the possibility Of living up to the dream in me You know I'll be reaching for higher ground I will stand on my own I will live up to this vision I will trust in what I feel I'd follow my heart until it brings me home Brings me home Maybe it's just a dream in me Maybe it's just my style Maybe it's just the freedom that I've found Given the possibility Of living up to the dream in me You know I'll be reaching for higher ground Keep me through the night Lead me to the light Teach me the magic of wonder Give me the spirit to fly Maybe it's just a dream in me Maybe it's just my style Maybe it's juat the freedom that I've found Given the possibility Of living up to the dream in me You know I'll be reaching for higher ground Maybe it's just a dream in me Maybe it's just my style Maybe it's juat the freedom that I've found Given the possibility Of living up to the dream in me You know I'll be reaching for higher ground

Skyscraper

ARCHIVE "Londinium"
One man climbs higher then one bites dust Thru the dark hours in dark towers we trust Forever the rays of light will energise my Born ability mind stability much creativity 39 steps 22 catch boxed in Tales of the city we are lost in Living in a haze I'm amazed by the ways in the days Of forever go non stop pressure The risking obelisks stands stable in the skyline You will find icon is symbol and symbol is sign Higher aspect looking down over the horizon The cloud nine zero back down to the ground Skyscraper you will never feel What it's like to be, or how it seems to me It's all man-made material Scribbled down by the architect Just parallel lines on the paper Surrounded by walls that vary in size Still they cast an intimidating image in my eyes But ya concrete block will never rock my stone Inya zone I'm unbreakable able to resist Overthe stage in timea newer age And still I'm in a rage of dilemma Minds eye spray gamma hammer nail Again it presents itself What's life like upon the top shelf ? It really doesn't matter if I'm any Lesser than your higher status See the press haven't you heard the latest The greatest thing about being 'I' is me And what I really can be I never Run you never ran me I stand my ground found solid stance Never take a step back move forward Remember this skyscraper ya building blocks Will trickle down like sands of time So roll the dice then pay the price

I Believe In You

JOSHUA KADISON "Troubadour In A Time Quake"
Sometimes I wish this world was an easier place And when I see those tears falling from your face I pray, little angel, don't give up on yourself Don't let nothin' get you down Just keep on reaching for your higher group If you could only see yourself through my eyes If I could only help you to realize That there's a light inside of you I can see it shinin' all around Just keep on reaching for your higher ground Cause I believe in you sure as a smile lights up a child's face I believe in you sure as the stars do shine in velvet space I believe in you sure as the morning sun kisses the sky I believe in you, with every beat of my heart hear me testify I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe Yes, I believe in you I see you tryin' so hard to be who it is you wanna be Precious angel, don't you know You're already everything to me And though sometimes it seems a cold Hard rain's tryna keep your visions down Just keep on reaching for your higher ground Cause I believe in you sure as a smile lights up a child's face I believe in you sure as the stars do shine in velvet space I believe in you sure as the morning sun kisses the sky I believe in you, with every beat of my heart hear me testify I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe Oh, I believe in you sure as the autumn leaves Dance to the ground I believe in you sure as Heaven Only knows what spins this world around I believe in you sure as the spring does melt a winter's snow I believe in you sure as the light you shine touches my soul I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe Yes, I believe in you So, please, little angel, don't give up on yourself Don't let nothin' get you down Just keep on reaching for your higher ground

ACE HOOD "The Statement 2"
[Verse 1:] Uh guess again they hesitant Just to let him in Walk a mile in my shoes I swear they never did Nor they never will Finally I'm center fielder See a mill cry tears, for my old fields Looking back I promise mama that I never will Gave me chills this humble nigga remaining still Underrated be the best my ultamatum is in my flow Cultivate'm, moving like a terminater ugh So inspired the swagga they so admire Sitting court side with the Boss with the empires Used to be a dream I'm a smoking the entire Moment R.I.P. My homies Differnent kind of strokes For The boy Gary Colemen Meeting different women And I swear I gottem open No love for them because my ice box frozen Been to the bottom now it's spring like Poland Wattup 'tho Renegades we rewritin history I'm inspired by the beat Cups for victory [Hook:] Hey hey hey hey And I been through that pain In my life earning my stripes But still I'm going fight this war Cause they say that I won't Show them I will You with me let me hear you say That we never gone stop aim for the top head to that sky I just wantto be great Be great be great be great I just wanna be great Be great be great be great I just wanna be [Verse 2:] Hella passinate adamint yes accurate Science to the game I study like that anatomy Used to can't battle me now I triple your salary Back full of batteries that's definition of strategy Day I let them win homie that'll be death of me Something you will never see Dope like methamphetamine Riding in some shit that probably dropping 2017 Martin Luther ain't the only one who had a dream I just wanna be great MJ style Doubted by the critics hiphop's stepchild Little boy or girl why your head down You can be great you just got to say it proud On a mission my ambition got me living different Big crib but a made man living in it Words to my niggas they the living witness Believe that I'm great glad you here to witness [Hook]

The Dawntreader

JONI MITCHELL "Song To A Seagull"
Peridots and periwinkle blue medallions Gilded galleons spilled across the ocean floor Treasure somewhere in the sea and he will find where Never mind their questions there's no answer for The roll of the harbor wake The songs that the rigging makes The taste of the spray he takes And he learns to give He aches and he learns to live He stakes all his silver On a promise to be free Mermaids live in colonies All his seadreams come to me City satins left at home I will not need them I believe him when he tells of loving me Something truthful in the sea your lies will find you Leave behind your streets he said and come to me Come down from the neon nights Come down from the tourist sights Run down till the rain delights you You do not hide Sunlight will renew your pride Skin white by skin golden Like a promise to be free Dolphins playing in the sea All his seadreams come to me Seabird I have seen you fly above the pilings I am smiling at your circles in the air I will come and sit by you while he lies sleeping Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share A dream that you love someone A dream that the wars are done A dream that you tell no one but the grey sea They'll say that you're crazy And a dream of a baby Like a promise to be free Children laughing out to sea All his seadreams come to me

In My African Dream

Johnny Clegg
Something broke the place where the rain is bornb something stole the promise from the light of dawn people, people were everywhere struggling to get their share honest cruelty in the eyes of the innocent squeezing one more harvest from this tired earth they call to you, but the wind just blows away their words didn't believe in miracles, didn't believe you'd come didn't see any reason to carry on Chorus: But in my African Dream, you touched my face raised up my children and gave them grace in my African Dream you wiped away my tears and whispered the promise of a thousand years Children with eyes like souls ready to fly looking at me -- for some kind of sacred sign who will teach the young, the names of the ancient ones who will tell them from whence they come I have no answer, don't even have a prayer All I can do is close my eyes and hope that you will be thre In my African Dream you blessed the rain let me stand proud, eased the pain, you raised me up, gave me love, filled my cup. Old man sits in the shade of the thorn treee he says these thorns are all that are true life is suffering, suffering is life, be happy with the small things that come to you They will come to you, come to you. Chorus
