"Gotta Stay High" as written by and Gregg Alexander....
I saw your eyes
I had to run away
I fell too deep in love
There were no words to say
I just had to get high
One look inside
And I knew right away
I felt too much
I did not have the strength
I just ran to get high

But lover there's something about you
Just pushing me pulling me
That's saying don't go away
I saw your eyes
Fell into yesterday
An only child
Until you let me stay

I had no one on my side
Too weak to stand
Too scared to love again
The damn has broke
My soul is spilling all over your hands
Take a look in my eyes

Lover, there's something about you
Pushing me pulling me
That's saying don't go away
Ain't never gonna be another
I see your eyes
I'll never run away
I fell too deep in love
Only five words to say

    General Commenti think the "getting high" part necessarily means high off of narcotics. to me, it's more just the feeling of elation he gets from her; she, essentially, makes him high. the way she makes him feel is intoxicating.

    so when he says, "we just gotta stay high" he means that he wants them to be together, intoxicated with their emotions for one another.

    General Commenti wish we could've had a second album too. but you know, this one is so perfect, it probably would've ruined it.
