Richie Sambora You Can Only Get So High Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2013 07:46:26 PM

Hard time waking up this mornin'
Close the blinds so I can see
First light came without a warnin'
And the sunrise, scared the daylights out of me

Downed seven Tylenols for breakfast
Chased it down with last night's cloudy memory
Empty bottle preached the gospel
Another shot ain't coming close to saving me
Close to saving me

You can only get so high
Then you gotta come down
Twistin' in the clouds, just like a kite
Fightin' just to stay up in the sky
Flyin' in the free fall
Before you know it is your last call
I'll take one more drink and two packs of lights
Drownin' with your demons in disguise
You can only get so high
You can only get so high

Life was one long after party
My welcome was too long of a stay
Your good times sing the same old stories
But they leave out, how the bill is gettin' paid
You give yourself ten second chances
Say I ain't quittin' I'm just splittin' for a while
Ended like so many bad romances
One more victory lap before you say goodbye

You can only get so high
Then you gotta come down
Twistin' in the clouds, just like a kite
Fightin' just to stay up in the sky
Flyin' in the free fall
Before you know it is your last call
I'll take one more drink and two packs of lights
Drownin' with your demons in disguise
You can only get so high
You can only get so high

Endless limitation that I keep on gettin' by
I guess I'll start by sittin' down with me, myself and I
I think it's best to leave my desperation to decide

You can only get so high
Then you gotta come down
Twistin' in the clouds, just like a kite
Fightin' just to stay up in the sky
Flyin' in the free fall
Before you know it is your last call
I'll take one more drink and two packs of lights

You can only get so high
Till you bottom out and breakdown
You can only hurt so many times
Before the truth falls from the lie
Flyin' in the free fall
Just before you hit the last wall
Ya only get one more chance and one last goodbye
It took a lifetime to realize
You can only get so high
You can only get so high
Then you gotta come down
Then you gotta come down
Then you gotta come down
Then you gotta come down
