"Ascension" as written by Maxwell Gerald Davis Menard and Itaal Shur....
Oh

It happened the moment,
When you were revealed
'Cause you were a dream that
You should not have been
A fantasy real
You gave me this beating baby
This rhythm inside
And you made me feel good
And feel nice and feel loved
Give me paradise

So shouldn't I realize
You're the highest of the high
If you don't know, then I'll say it
So don't ever wonder

So shouldn't I realize
You're the highest of the high
If you don't know, then I'll say it
So don't ever wonder

So tell me how long
How long it's gonna take
Until you speak, babe
'Cause I can't live my life
Without you here by my side
Oh
You gave me the feelin',
Feelin' in my life

So shouldn't I realize
You're the highest of the high
If you don't know, then I'll say it
So don't ever wonder

    General CommentI think simply put, this song is about reassurance. The narrator doesn't want the girl to question her role in his life, dreams, fantasies. This song always puts me in a good mood.

    General CommentHe's talking about God. "Highest of the High" "It happend the morning you were revealed" Ancient philosophy says that they believed the Sun to be God. ex: The Most High; The Light Of The World; The Sun of God. All those pertain the Jesus as well as the Sun itself. Understand the true meaning of the "Ascension" and the case is closed. Maxwell is ahead of his fuckin time!!!

    My OpinionAlthough the song is excellent, its commercial success was provoked by the misunderstanding of the lyrics. The music contains strong gospel tunes and was recorded in 1995. Maxwell is a native New Yorker, deeply influenced by 70s soul classics, especially the falsetto of Marvin Gaye, and I think that he conceived "ascension" for an uncommon partner, hypothetically sent to him by the Highest of the High. On the 31st of May 1996, the popular father of psychedelia, Timothy Leary, died, and so someone had the brilliant idea to realease "ascension (don't ever wonder)" as a single, done on the 30th of July 1996. This single was immediatly interpreted as a satire about Leary, and its gospel tunes as comical. As you can see, it is not always the Highest of the High to determine the success of soul songs, but sometimes the Lowest of the Low.
