“A Higher Place” by Tom PettyJuly 27, 2018
“We’ve got to get to a higher place, and we gotta leave by night.
Before that river takes us down, we gotta find some place that’s dry.
We gotta run like we’ve never run, or we’re gonna lose the light.
If we don’t get to a higher place and find somebody, can help somebody, might be nobody no more.
Well, I fool myself and I don’t know why; I thought we could ride this out.
I was up all night making up my mind, but now I’ve got my doubts.
I got my eye on the waterline, trying to keep my sense of humor
We gotta get to a higher place, and I hope we all arrive together.
We gotta get to a higher place if we want to survive the weather.
I remember walking with her in town; her hair was in the wind.
I gave her my best kiss; she gave it back again.
When I add up what I’ve left behind, I don’t want to lose no more
