Chris Stapleton - Higher Lyrics






What Am I Gonna Do

What am I gonna do
When I get over you?
What am I gonna be
When you're just a memory?
What am I gonna drink
When I don't have to think
About what I'm gonna do without you?

Been drinking everything on that shelf
Feels like I'm killing myself
You're gone and it hurts like hell
Wishing I was anybody else

What am I gonna do
When I get over you?
What am I gonna be
When you're just a memory?
What am I gonna drink
When I don't have to think
About what I'm gonna do without you?

Jukebox with a neon glow
Keeps playing That's The Way Love Goes
Time keeps ticking on by so slow
They say it'll heal ya but I hope it don't though

What am I gonna do
When I get over you?
What am I gonna be
When you're just a memory?
What am I gonna drink
When I don't have to think
About what I'm gonna do without you?

South Dakota

Lord, this morning when I woke up
I wanted that whiskey in my coffee cup
Had last night ringing in my head
Telling me I oughta go back to bed

I'm in South Dakota
I keep on staying behind
I'm in South Dakota
Trouble ain't hard to find

I thought I might go take a ride
Changed my mind when I looked outside
I can't stay but I can't leave
Or get myself away from me

I'm in South Dakota
I keep on staying behind
I'm in South Dakota
Trouble ain't hard to find

Nights are long as the day is cold
Staying alive is getting old
Nothing is everything I got left
Staring down the devil but I'm scared to death

I'm in South Dakota
I keep on staying behind
I'm in South Dakota
Trouble ain't hard to find

I'm in South Dakota
Keep on staying behind
I'm in South Dakota
Trouble ain't hard to find

Trust

Though we jump through hoops and dance on wires
Walk on broken glass and play with fire
Though we're blindfolded, when we turn on the light
I know everything will be alright

If you trust in true love and you trust in time
If you trust in forever, trust this heart of mine
We could lose ourselves just like lovers do
If you trust in me like I trust in you
Trust in me like I trust in you

Too many people have been let down
By broken promises on rocky ground
And there's cracks in the pavement
I don't wanna fall through
Hold on to me and I'll hold on to you

If you trust in true love and you trust in time
If you trust in forever, trust this heart of mine
We could lose ourselves just like lovers do
If you trust in me like I trust in you
Trust in me like I trust in you

Now, there are cynics with rusty knives
Trying to cut away the good in our lives
But I don't care what they believe
With you I have everything I need

And if you trust in true love and you trust in time
If you trust in forever, trust this heart of mine
We could lose ourselves just like lovers do
If you trust in me like I trust in you
Trust in me like I trust in you

It Takes A Woman

Whenever I'm broken
Honey, you heal me
When I'm in the dark
You are the light
When I get lost
You know right where to find me
When I have my doubts
You make me believe

And it takes a woman
It takes a woman
A woman who sees the best part of me
Through all that I am
It takes a woman
Oh, it takes a woman
To be all I can, to feel like a man
It takes a woman

You are my comfort
Whenever I'm troubled
When I'm alone
You are my friend
You make me high
And keep my feet on the ground
Whatever I need
You give it to me

It takes a woman
It takes a woman
A woman who sees the best part of me
Through all that I am
It takes a woman
Oh, it takes a woman
To be all I can, to feel like a man
It takes a woman
Oh, to be all I can, to feel like a man
It takes a woman

The Fire

I watch your light
In the dark of night
Your shadow moves
Across a lonely room

Ooh, I hear your name
Through the wind and rain
Ooh, why can't you see
The fire inside of me?

I fantasize
That I'm your lover's eyes
And in my mind
Your body's next to mine

Ooh, I hear your name
Through the wind and rain
Ooh, why can't you see
The fire inside of me?

This fire, I feel
Oh, this fire is real
You're so close to me
But always out of reach

Ooh, I hear your name
Through the wind and rain
Ooh, why can't you see
The fire inside of me?

Ooh, I hear your name
Through the wind and rain
Ooh, why can't you see
The fire inside of me?

The fire inside of me
The fire inside of me
The fire inside of me

Think Im In Love With You

Baby, do you ever wonder
Whatever happened way back when
Or if I'll see you again
Baby, do you ever wonder, yeah
Ah, you might wish things could change
I know this might sound strange but

I think I'm in love with you
I didn't know it at the time
I know what I wanna do
It's making me lose my mind
I thought about thinking it through
And every time I do I find
I wanna make your dreams come true
I think I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

Oh, you are the power over me
You are the truth that I believe
You are my life, you are my world
You are the air I'm breathing, girl
You are the light I wanna see
You're all of everything to me
You are the reasons that I am
Woman

I think I'm in love with you
I didn't know it at the time
I know what I wanna do
It's making me lose my mind
I thought about thinking it through
And every time I do I find
I wanna make your dreams come true
I think I'm in love with you, whoa

I think I'm in love with you
I didn't know it at the time
I know what I wanna do
It's making me lose my mind, girl
I thought about thinking it through
And every time I do I find
I wanna make your dreams come true
I think I'm in love with you, whoa

I think I'm in love with you
I didn't know it at the time
I know what I wanna do
It's making me lose my mind, girl
I thought about thinking it through
And every time I do I find
I wanna make your dreams come true
I think I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

I think I'm in love with you
I think I'm in love with you
I think I'm in love with you (yeah)
I think I'm in love with you
I think I'm in love with you
Yeah, I'm in love with you

Loving You On My Mind

Baby, if I seem a little bit distracted
Like I'm in another place and another time, well, well, well
I apologize for the way I'm acting
I've just got a lotta loving you on my mind

Ever since this morning, I've been wondering
How you do that thing you did last night, well, well
Let me tell you, girl, that was really something
That's why I've got a lotta loving you on my mind, mind

I walk around and dream about you
Every single minute of every day
It's all I can do to make it through until the night
I can hardly wait, oh, I can hardly wait

'Cause girl, the kind of loving you put on me
Ain't no way there's a better kind
Baby, just tell me when you want me
I always got a lotta loving you on my mind, on my mind
Loving you on my mind
I always got a lotta loving you on my mind

White Horse

This love is getting kinda dangerous
Feels like it's a loaded gun
My mind, it's turning like a cloud of dust
My heart always wants to run

Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
If you want a cowboy on a white horse
Riding off into the sunset
If that's the kinda love you wanna wait for
Hold on tight, girl, I ain't there yet
No, I ain't there yet
No, I ain't there yet

White horse

Someday, maybe you could have your way
Right now's just not the time
Some things a man's just got to do
I wish you could change my mind

Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh
If you want a cowboy on a white horse
Riding off into the sunset
If that's the kinda love you wanna wait for
Hold on tight, girl, I ain't there yet
No, I ain't there yet
No, I ain't there yet

White horse

If you want a cowboy on a white horse
Riding off into the sunset
If that's the kinda love you wanna wait for
Hold on tight, girl, I ain't there

If you want a cowboy on a white horse
Riding off into the sunset
If that's the kinda love you wanna wait for
Hold on tight, girl, I ain't there yet
No, I ain't there yet
No, I ain't there yet

Higher

I could climb the highest hill
Reach my hands up to the sky
Maybe touch a passing cloud
My heart would know all the while

That you take me higher
So much higher

I could board an aeroplane
And look down across the land
But it could never reach that place
That I know your sweet loving can

'Cause you take me higher
So much higher

Your love's the sunrise that turns my night into day
It gives me wings and lets me fly away

I could shoot out into space
Count the endless sea of stars
But with you I'd have to say
My heaven's never quite that far

'Cause you take me higher
So much higher
So much higher

The Bottom

Love is a mystery, it's a tricky thing
It's more than a word, more than a ring
When the right thing turns to wrong
Turns into a lonesome song
And everybody knows how it goes when it does

The bottle holds the whiskey, the whiskey holds the man
The man holds the bottle when it's all that's left
And the left hand lights what the right hand holds
The smoke can't hide what the heart regrets
'Cause the heart holds the memory and the memory holds the past
And the past holds the woman at the bottom of the glass
So I don't have a problem if I don't see the bottom

I played it all over and over in my mind
I'm looking for the reason I just can't find
Wish I knew what I could blame
Without a moment I could name
I don't have a thing that I recall

The bottle holds the whiskey, the whiskey holds the man
The man holds the bottle when it's all that's left
And the left hand lights what the right hand holds
The smoke can't hide what the heart regrets
'Cause the heart holds the memory and the memory holds the past
And the past holds the woman at the bottom of the glass
So I don't have a problem if I don't see the bottom

'Cause the heart holds the memory and the memory holds the past
And the past holds the woman at the bottom of the glass
So I don't have a problem if I don't see the bottom

Whoa, the hurt's holding me and I'm holding on
To a hundred-proof truth and a hope that's long gone
So I don't have a problem if I don't see the bottom

The Day I Die

When my heart stops breaking
When my eyes won't cry
When there's a day I can live without you, baby
It'll be the day I die

I have never, ever hurt this way
The pain is almost more than I can take
I'd give anything for you to stay with me
And never say goodbye

When my heart stops breaking
When my eyes won't cry
When there's a day I can live without you, baby
It'll be the day I die

I don't understand the reasons why
Was every I love you a lover's lie?
Please, tell me that you felt it at the time
And that what we had was real

When my heart stops breaking
When my eyes won't cry
When there's a day I can live without you, baby
It'll be the day I die

I have nothing if I don't have you
These days all I'm looking forward to

Is when my heart stops breaking
When my eyes won't cry
When there's a day I can live without you, baby
It'll be the day I die
Oh, it'll be the day I die

Crosswind

I can see what's coming for me
By the way that it's bending the pines
Brother, me and these eighteen wheels
Are gonna hammer on down the line
Flying like a bat out of hell
Tearing out of North Alabama
Signs are saying, Jesus Saves
But the devil don't give a damn

Tryin' to keep all the rubber on 65
Might not make it out alive
White knuckling the wheel just to survive
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind

Sometimes, what drives a man
Ain't nothing but a matter of will
When a man's got a heavy load
He's just tryin' to make it over the hill
Burning the hours taking truck-stop showers
And sleeping in the cheap motels
Picking up speed on a mission to feed five kids with a CDL

Tryin' to keep all the rubber on 65
Might not make it out alive
White knuckling the wheel just to survive
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind

It's a fight in the dark of night
With another hundred miles to run
When your mind starts tryin' to find ways
To get you out from under the gun
This livin' ain't much of a life
But it's the only thing I know how to do
I miss you, honey but I gotta make some money
So I'm hoping I can make it through

Tryin' to keep all the rubber on 65
Might not make it out alive
White knuckling the wheel just to survive
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind
Caught in the crosswind, caught in the crosswind

Weight Of Your World

I want you to know, wherever your road wants to go
I'll never be far, I'll always be right where you are
If you lose your way, if your hope is gone
I'll be the light that leads you home

Give me your darkest hour
Give me your deepest fear
Just give me a call and I'll be here
Give me the bars and chains that won't set you free
Give me the weight of your world
And lay it on me

There will come a time when all the words don't seem to rhyme
Please, lean on me until you find the harmony
When it's hard to breathe, when the right seems wrong
I'll be the hand that helps you along

Give me your darkest hour
Give me your deepest fear
Just give me a call and I'll be here
Give me the bars and chains that won't set you free
Give me the weight of your world
And lay it on me

Wherever you go, wherever you've been
Anytime you need a friend

Give me your darkest hour
Give me your deepest fear
Just give me a call and I'll be here
Give me the bars and chains that won't set you free
Give me the weight of your world
And lay it on me

Oh, lay it on me
Oh, lay it on me (give me the weight of your world)
Just lay it on me

Mountains Of My Mind

There's a destination, I've got a ways to go
There's a revelation that I might never know
Somewhere salvation is waiting down the road

So, I think I'll find a long white line
Curse the world and leave it all behind
I've been trying all this time
I still can't climb the mountains of my mind

There's a testimony that no one's ever heard
There's circumstances that none of us deserve
No rhyme or reason waiting 'round the curve

Think I'll find a long white line
Curse the world and leave it all behind
I've been trying all this time
I still can't climb the mountains of my mind

There's an empty table with a well-worn wooden chair
Just waiting for me in the middle of nowhere
Where no one knows me, where no one even cares

I think I'll find a long white line
Curse the world and leave it all behind
I've been trying all this time
And still can't climb the mountains of my mind

Yes, I've been trying all this time
And still can't climb the mountains of my mind
Don't worry, I'll be fine
But I still can't climb the mountains of my mind
