Creed Higher Lyrics

Last updated: 01/09/2011 10:00:00 AM



When dreaming I'm guided to another world
Time and time again
At sunrise I fight to stay asleep
'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place
'Cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape
From the life I live when I'm awake
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Although I would like our world to change
It helps me to appreciate
Those nights and those dreams
But, my friend, I'd sacrifice all those nights
If I could make the Earth and my dreams the same
The only difference is
To let love replace all our hate
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

So lets go there, lets go there,
Come on, lets go there
Lets ask can we stay?

Up high I feel like I'm alive for the very first time
Set up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams
And make them mine
Set up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams
And make them mine

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Interpretations | Reviewer: Jenny | 1/9/11

Jared - I love your take on these lyrics. Tim - that's the beauty of music ... It can mean one thing to you and something totally different to me. I may interpret a song one way then years later in a completely different phase of my life, I listen to that song and it means something totally different to me. Don't sell music short my friend. With that said, Creed's lyrics always stir me.



Ironic | Reviewer: Mel | 7/27/09

My old friend of 15 years had to be put down last night it's been almost a day since she went to a place with no pain. As soon as I turned the car on thisvsong played from the radio.in such pain. Live your life. God bless



About the song... | Reviewer: Tim | 12/31/08

Vocalist Scott Stapp actually wrote the song about the power of lucid dreaming.
The song was written after Stapp used the technique to stop a recurring nightmare he had been experiencing in which he was pursued and killed by a gunman. In the dream, he would turn left at the end of a highway and hide under a bridge, only to be found by his assailant and shot. When he had studied lucid dreaming and tried the technique, he was able to turn right and escape the gunman. Stapp stated that after he wrote the lyrics, he never had the dream again.
So its not actually about "heaven"
And hey Jared...what does "and that refers to heavan so this song is good" mean dude?
is a song only good when its about heaven or god?
but hey i agree with the rest of you guys...the song kicks ass...listen to it all the time...never gets tiring



LOVE THIS SONG! | Reviewer: in love~ | 12/30/08

Carrie, I agree with you. I truly escape to another place when listening to this great song. I love it so much. I know this sounds cliché but I really do realte to it, the (At sunrise I fight to stay asleep - 'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place) part is so true. I mean I really dont want to wake up because life without a person you really love and cherish is very hard.



thanks | Reviewer: Champ | 1/28/08

WOW thanks Jared, I didnt know any of that, even though you express how its so self-explanitory. Real genius you are, thanks for helping me understand such a difficult song to comprehend.



Takes me higher | Reviewer: Carrie | 12/27/07
