I've been crawling
To the mountains
Skinned my knees with blood and hope
If I stayed standing
I'd be drowning
The rising waters made me choke

As I am getting nearer
My mission is coming clear

I know this road
Never seen it before
I know what lies behind unopened doors
I saw the signs from the distant shore
That I couldn't ignore

I'm heading for higher ground

I left everyone behind me
I took everything I know
Half way up and I'm still climbing
Still a million miles to go

The water is drawing nearer
As everything disappears


I'm heading for higher ground

And my foot slips
But I don't quit
And my hand grips the rock
Something pulls deep
From within me
Til I get there, I won't stop

[Chorus: x2]

I'm heading for higher, higher ground

Way up here, the air is thin
Feels like I could go so far

    General Commenthmm.
    to me,this song is basically saying she's off to bigger and better things.

    after "skinning her knees" (hard stuff she's been through),she has no idea what lies in store for her.

    she knows she has to keep going,she can't be in that one place for long.

    well,yeah.that's what I got out of it.

    General Commentyeah, I agree with iwantyourbod(i like your name!).
    It's about her journey from where she was, to where she is now. Its about what she's been going through and is going through and how she is kinda pushing herself and not giving up no matter what. Its message is really motivating, it's a great song!
