I was searching for myself tonight
I stumbled across the tired look in her eye
a lot of people living in the same dark cloud
she said we ought to make our way to higher ground

'cause with a sunburn comes a new layer of skin
let's pull out the staples that are keeping us in
when did the future change from promise to threat?
that's when I took a deep breath, and I said

well I get the feeling that I'm trapped underwater
I can't get out but I gotta 'cause see my reflection's on a long holiday
and I wanna come celebrate with him too
it's like I'm missing out on even what I get to do

so that's great, it's settled, set a date and go
she said that's not enough by a long shot no
we gotta drive tonight, we'll arrive first light
and trust me you'll be feeling alright

chorus
take me to higher ground
heal my soul and let me quiet down
show me where to find it now
this love

we'll I'm a sucker for a pretty face
but they're usually painted on a headcase
I opened up the fortune and the cookie states:
things are getting better oh, and by the way,

you need to get it together and learn to say hey whatever
we'll all be gone for good someday, but that's okay
just don't forget to play and dream
and make your sleep a slumber party

chorus

like a sweet tooth hiding in the perfect mouth
staying in the bathtub while the water runs out
find yourself enamored over someone's eyebrows
putting a lampshade on a lighthouse

it's living day to day in a world like this
never seeing parts that we forgot exist
but you never miss until you're just this close
