A Higher Place

The demons of desire have laid siege on my spirit
My soul is hungry and there’s a famine in my loins
The walls around my trepidation rumble with each battering of the ram
Soon they will crumble and fall
Crumble and fall

I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where the Angels go : “Whooo”
I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where you’ve never been before
I’m gonna take you, I’m gonna take you

These wondrous walls turn stuck-up into shy
Take them down! Please bring all you’ve got
Caterpillars come out of their cocoons as beatiful butterflies
But only when they hear the bugle call
Hear the bugle call

I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where the Angels go : “Whooo”
I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where you’ve never been before
I’m gonna take you, I’m gonna take you

I want to talk with you, sing with you, eat with you, dance with you
make love to you like monkeys do
I want to wake up with you, drink with you, share with you, watch with you
feel you, hear you, smell you and be with you

I want your smile, I want your lips, I want your voice, I want your eyes
I want you to pull a book from my shelf and comment on it
I want your ass, I want your jokes, I want your smell… Oh, the way you dress! I want your hair, I want your heart and
I want you

I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where the Angels go : “Whooo” I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where you’ve never been before
I’m gonna take you, take you, take you, take you, take you, take you, take you, take you

We’re gonna build unfettered fireworks of such mythical proportions
That if people bore witness, they would build a religion around it

I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where the Angels go : “Whooo”
I’m gonna take you to a higher place, where you’ve never been before
