"High On You" as written by and Peterik/sullivan....
There you stood, that'll teach ya
To look so good and feel so right
Let me tell you 'bout the girl I met last night
It's understood, I had to reach ya
I let the wheel of fortune spin
I touched your hand before the crowd
Started crushin' in
Now I'm higher than a kite
I know I'm gettin' hooked on your love
Talkin' to myself, runnin' in the heat
Beggin' for your touch in the middle
Of the street and I --

I can't stop thinking 'bout you girl
I must be living in a fantasy world
I've searched the whole world over
To find a heart so true
Such complete intoxication
I'm high on you

Smart and coy, a little crazy
The kinda face that starts a fight
Let me tell you 'bout the girl I had last night
Piercin' eyes, like a raven
You seemed to share my secret sin
We were high before the night
Started kickin' in
Now I'm screamin' in the night
I know I'm gettin' hooked on your love
Talkin' to myself, runnin' in the heat
Beggin' for your touch in the middle
Of the street and I --

I can't stop thinking 'bout you girl
I must be living in a fantasy world
I've searched the whole world over
To find a heart so true
Such complete intoxication
I'm high on you

    My OpinionI'm confused. So this is a song about love at first sight? Do the lyrics switch perspectives? Is he singing to the object of his desire the whole time? What does "Let me tell you about the girl I met/had last night" mean? Is it an aside to the listener?

    General CommentGreat song about love at first sight. I was a big Survivor fan in high school, I liked the black and white video of them performing in a room of hanging light bulbs.

    General CommentGreat tune. About a guy that sees a girl, gets to know her, and she eventually starts to grow on him. Damn, survivor is awesome. Soooo under-rated.

    MemoryZorro3, I think the lyrics switch perspectives, like he's talking to a friend in the first verse, and then he directs his lyrics to the girl in the chorus. But it does get slightly confusing...

    Anyway, this song is so perfect; I love the beat and the melody! It reminds me of a guy I really loved. We were completely intoxicated with each other....man, we had it all. Sadly now we're both moving on because circumstances didn't allow us to be together. I'll never forget him though - I have him to thank for introducing me to awesome epic music like this. =)

    Survivor survived!!! xD

    Song MeaningIt's obvious that this song is about a groupie that someone in the band wrote about.

    "I touched your hand before the crowd started crushing in" --a fan at a concert.

    "I've searched the whole world over to find a heart so true"--a fan's admiration.

    "Let me tell you about the girl I had last night" --he slept with her.
