Come on Get Higher

I knew it was time to write but I couldn’t put the past two weeks of my life into words. Frustrated with my writers block, I put down my computer and decided to do chores. I went down stairs with laundry turned the corner, and the sweet sound of Matt Nathanson’s, “Come and Get Higher” serenaded me and brought my sweet little cousin Katie to mind. Two weeks ago, at our family’s reunion we had a family talent show and this is the song that my little cousin picked to sing, (last-minute I believe since she needed my phone for the music) and it will forever remind me of her. Katie was in an almost fatal car accident about a year and a half ago and has come a long way in rehab to be able to speak again, walk again, and most important : be happy again. After speaking with her about her experience, and what she remembers about from her comma is not only a blessing but an inspiration. I am so honored to call her a cousin and I am so proud of her strength. I thought I would include the lyrics to the song because now its just one of my favorites 😉

Have a happy, healthy, and thankful rest of your week!

Come on Get Higher
Matt Nathanson

I miss the sound of your voice
And I miss the rush of your skin
And I miss the still of the silence
As you breathe out and I breathe in

If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what’s next
I’d make you believe
I’d make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the sound of your voice
Loudest thing in my head
And I ache to remember
All the violent, sweet
Perfect words that you said

If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what’s next
I’d make you believe
I’d make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the pull of your heart
I taste the sparks on your tongue
I see angels and devils
And God, when you come on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Sing sha la la la
Sing sha la la la la

Ooo Ooo Ooo…
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me, drown me in love

It’s all wrong, it’s all wrong
It’s all wrong, it’s so right
So come on, get higher
So come on and get higher
‘Cause everything works, love
Everything works in your arms.
