Higher Ground
©J.C. Ashbaker 12-2014

This last year, was one to remember
From the chance and the choices, you'll give or you'll take
We've come back to basics, both new and familiar
The same situation, in a different place

Now sometimes the answers, don't come, all that quickly
And sometimes the question has never been asked
And if there's a sign while your eyes are still blinking
Don't hide in the future or live in the past

Listen to your head and your heart, may never follow
Listen to your heart and your head will come to know
That you can walk to (stand on) higher ground
When one is lost then one is found

Broken bones, tend to heal, when they're rested
But broken hearts, never mend, on their own
A troubled mind, will respond, to a blessing
A troubled soul, can not find, its way home

--Repeat Chorus--

Can you feel the dead man's fallout
Oh, can you heal the wounded bird
And can you hear the hearts that call out
Oh, love's much more than a word

--Repeat Chorus--
