Higher
(Intro) Hey, Hey

(1st verse)
When I was younger girl nobody told me about the facts of life.
I was living in the clouds I didn't think about what's wrong or right.
So I didn't understand that playing games is what some people do.
I swore I didn't start my life until the day I fell in love with you.
And you kept taking me higher just to drop me off...

(Chorus)
Do you feel like a man? Cause you've got my heart in your hands.
And you took me high as you can, higher just to drop me off.
Tell me did it make you feel good? (Ha) Treating me the way you would. (Ha)
Cause you took me high as you could. Higher just to drop me off.

(2nd Verse)
When I was a younger girl nobody told me I would have to fight.
To keep my sanity I couldn't love because I'd lose my sight.
So mostly everything you did is send another gift you broke my heart.
Until you came around again, and I was right back at the very start.
And you kept taking me higher just to drop me off...

(Chorus)
Do you feel like a man? Cause you've got my heart in your hands.
And you took me high as you can, higher just to drop me off.
Tell me did it make you feel good? (Ha) Treating me the way you would. (Ha)
Cause you took me high as you could. Higher just to drop me off.
Higher just to drop me... Let's go.

(Bridge)
Does it make you feel good to know broke me that's what people say.
Does it make you feel good you broke me down. (Uh)

I give you all I have, till there's nothing left, and all the time I spent, I can't get that back so... I think of what to do, what I wish I knew, how to keep away from you. (Hey hey hey...)

(Chorus)
So do you feel like a man? Cause you've got my heart in your hands.
And you took me high as you can, higher just to drop me off.
Higher, Higher, Higher, you take me higher just to drop me off.
(Hey, hey, hey hey hey, hey, hey, hey hey hey)
Tell me did it make you feel good? (Ha) Treating me the way you would. (Ha)
Cause you took me high as you could. Higher just to drop me off.
Higher just to drop me.
