"Higher" is a song by the American rock band Creed. The song is the first single from Creed's 1999 album, Human Clay. The song is about the power of lucid dreaming. The vocalist of Creed, and writer of the song, Scott 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 to this song, he never had the dream again.

LyricsEdit

When dreaming

I'm guided to another world time and time again

At sunrise, I fight to stay asleep

'Cause I don't wanna leave the comfort of this place

'Cause there's a hunger

Longing to escape

From I live when I am awake


So lets go there

Let's make our escape

C'mon lets 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 a world of 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

C'mon, 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 (go there)

And lets go there (go there)

C'mon lets go there (go there)

Lets ask can we stay


[guitar solo]


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
