"Walking Higher" as written by and Heather Nova....
I carry you with me,
A ghost inside
And in these shattered arms,
You're still alive.
I carry you with me,
A holy shrine
And dogs and angels follow
Right behind.

And could I be walking higher,
Could I be right beside her ? .

The bones they buried,
Will feed the trees
But every word you ever spoke,
Is still in me.

And couldi be walking higher,
Could I be right beside her ? .

And I will feel for you in the music,
And I will send that river home.
And I will cry for you sometimes,
When the night is down.
And I raise my head up to the mountains,
Talk to the birds and I fly,
'Cause the spirit lives on,
When the body dies.

And could I be walking higher,
Could I be right beside her?
Could I be walking higher,
Could I be right beside her?

    General CommentShe sings this so well.. it's true. this song sounds like it is about someone who has died..
    "'Cause the spirit lives on,
    When the body dies. "
    but it could relate to other situations as well. Like the way when someone isn't in your life anymore.... "every word you ever spoke/ Is still in me" You still remember everything about them.
    She still feels so close to this person even though they're gone...almost as if she's "walking higher" with them by her side.
