UB40 lyrics - Promises And Lies

Higher Ground

Original and similar lyrics
Moon and stars sit way up high Earth and trees beneath them lie The wind blows fragrant lullaby To cool the night for you and I On the wing the birds fly free Leviathan tames angry sea The flower waits for honeybee The sunrise wakes new life in me. And every hour of every day I'm learning more The more I learn, the less I know about before The less I know, the more I want to look around Digging deep for clues on higher ground... The fishes swim while rivers run Thru fields to feast my eyes upon Intoxicated drinking from The loving cup of burning sun In dreams I'll crave familiar taste Of whispered rain on weary face Of kisses sweet and warm embrace Another time another place And every hour of everyday I'm learning more The more I learn, the less I know about before The less I know, the more I want to look around Digging deep for clues on 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

Ancient Higway

VAN MORRISON
There's a small cafe on the outskirts of town I'll be there when the sun goes down Where the roadside bends And it twists and turns Every new generation And I'll be praying to my higher self Don't let me down, keep my feet on the ground There's a roadside jam playin' on the edge of town In a town called Paradise near the ancient highway When the train whistle blows All the sadness that Hank Williams knows And the river flows Call them pagan streams and it spins and turns In a factory in a street called Bread in East Belfast Where Georgie knows best What it's like to be Daniel in the lion's den Got so many friends only most of the time When the grass is high and the rabbit runs Though it's talkin' to you and I And every new generation comes to pay The dues of the organ grinder jam And the grinder's switch of the sacrifice Everybody made to be rational with understanding And I'll be praying to my higher self Oh, don't let me down, keep my feet on the ground What about all the people living in the nightmare hurt That won't go away no matter how hard they try They've got to pay time and time again, time and time again I'll be praying to my higher self And I'll be standin' there, where the boats go by When the sun is sinking way over the hill On a Friday evening when the sun goes down On the outskirts of town, I wanna slip away I wanna slip away, got to get away And I'll be praying to my higher self Don't let me down, keep my feet on the ground, don't let me down You'll be cryin' again, you'll be cryin' again, you'll be cryin' again By the same wipe the teardrops from your eyes Have to slip away in the evening when the sun goes down Over the hill, with a sense of wonder Everything gonna be right on a Friday evening All the cars go by all along down The ancient highway And I'll be praying, I'll be praying to my higher self Don't let me down, keep my feet, keep my feet on the ground Keep my feet on the ground Travelling like a stranger in the night, all along the ancient highway Got you in my sights, got you on my mind I'll be praying in the evening when the sun goes down Over the mountain, got to get you right in my sight As the beams on the cars from the overpass On the ancient highway shine like diamonds in the night Like diamonds in the night I'll be praying to my higher self, to my higher self Don't let me down, don't let me down And you'll be standing there, while the boats go by While the boats go by on a Friday evening Shining your light, shining your light on a Friday evening Got to slip away, got to slip away down that ancient highway In a town called Paradise, in a town, in a town All along, all along that road, all along that road, All along that road with the trancelike vision I'll be praying to my higher self, don't let me down, don't let me down Keep my feet on the ground, keep my feet on the ground, Keep my feet on the ground Friday evening got to slip away Watching the view from a car from the overpass And we're driving down that ancient road Shining like diamonds in the night, oh diamonds in the night All along the ancient highway Got you in my sight, got you in my mind Got you in my arms and I'm praying, and I'm gonna pray I'm gonna pray, to my higher self, ah don't let me down Don't let me down, give me the fire, ah give me the fire

Journey To Arcadia

AVANTASIA "Angel Of Babylon"
A lonely boy, a handful of dreams Cold wind blows through a heart wired-in Open skies he would explore No there ain't no mastery Of a passion and a deep blue love Yearn to see far away places One day he'd feel two hearts collide In his eyes tears and desire But he prays and he swears every night One day scales will fall from her eyes Just with a dream Just with a dream and with a song On my own I may stumble and fall It don't matter at all when you're blessed with Just what's yet to come, what's yet to come When dogs run barking And I don't hear no sound And the sky is as blue As eyes have never seen it Then I remember What I'd have been dying for Faith rescue my dream From a role that I've been put in On their screen Your eyes, and as I'll look into your eyes We're at the crack of dawn Life will stop telling lies And destiny will know It's just you and I Burning feet on the ground Got my head in the clouds Journey to Arcadia And I know I will stand What I can't comprehend Journey to Arcadia The more we see we understand That there's a lot that we don't know As you awake on padded ground The final curtain of the show Far from the eye but close to heart No matter how we try Can't repel the counterpart Our common bond we can't defy I've seen them standing at the crossroads When they were waiting for a sign And they unlearned to face the silence As they unlearned to turn inside You're turning to the sky And you're dying for an angel If you want it bad enough, see those eyes That's where two glances collide Learn to breathe, learn to crawl Learn to stand, walk and fall Learn to lose and to love, to believe, to rise above Love is more than to love Burning feet on the ground Got your head in the clouds You're out to find Arcadia And you know you will stand What you can't comprehend Journey to Arcadia The more I've seen I understand That there ain't nothing that I know now As I awake on padded ground The final curtain of the show
