I think I’m tryin’ too hard, wish I didn’t have to try so hard
I wish it came to me like air, without a worry or a care
I would have told you everything and like a bell my voice would ring
and in the echo you would hear the mutter of one thousand fears
I’ve become taken with the high road
no I can’t reap a thing I sew
I’ll build a bridge or I’ll just swim it
I will in a New York minute
he pushed her down on her luck
and why would she leave, she’s already down
and how could she leave him now, finally agreed to settle down
she could have said just what she meant and dear dawn do never relent
it seems so easy to forget, you don’t have to live with regret
I’ve become taken with the high road
no I can’t reap a thing I sew
I’ll build a bridge or I’ll just swim it
I will in a New York minute
how did you go so far without your heart, I know it’s hard
but you gotta do your part, I’m through with short cuts
I’ve become taken with the high road
no I can’t reap a thing I sew
I’ll build a bridge or I’ll just swim it, I will
in a New York minute

    I think I’m tryin’ too hard
    wish I didn’t have to try so hard
    I wish it came to me like air
    without a worry or a care,
    i would have told you everything
    and like a bell, my voice would ring
    and in the echo you would hear
    the mutter of one thousand fears

    I’ve become taken with the high road
    no I won't reap a thing I don't sew
    I’ll build a bridge or I’ll just swim it
    I willl, i will
    in a New York minute
    he pushed her down on her luck
    and why would she leave, she’s already down
    and how could she leave him now,
    finally agreed to settle down
    she could have said just what she meant
    and dear dawn do never relent
    seems so easy to forget
    you don’t have to live with regret

    I’ve become taken with the high road
    no I won't reap a thing I don't sew
    I’ll build a bridge or I’ll just swim it
    I will, i will
    in a New York minute

    how did you go so far without your heart
    I know it’s hard but you gotta do your part
    I’m through with short cuts

    I’ve become taken with the high road
    no I won't reap a thing I don't sew
    I’ll build a bridge or I’ll just swim it
    I will, i will
    in a New York minute

    General Commenti have to say that this is one of my favorite of their songs. its so unlike any other song they sing. but really i love alll their music. my sister started listening to them before me and she was reluctant to give me any other song but this one and i had to find them myself but it was entirely worth it. they have such a different sound than any other bands out there right now.
