Cardigans – Higher lyrics

I'm glad you came around today
I sure need a good companion
I'm losing it but you're the same
Without you I move at random
Abusing you 'cause you're a friend
And there's no Jesus here to explain

And take me higher
Come take me higher
Come take me high above our time
Take me higher
Oh take me higher
Come take me high above our time
We'll make it out of here... oh yeah

You justify, you're not afraid
And I won't feel like this forever
You wait with me, because you know
There's so much more than this before we go

To take us higher
Come take us higher
Come take us high above our time
Take us higher
Oh take us higher
Come take us high above our time
We'll make it out of here
Come take us out of here
Take us anywhere... oh yeah

    I believe it to describe a friendship between a man and a woman. I have always interpreted it as if the woman is going through a tough period where she is either in love, or has just ended a relationship with someone else, who she still loves. Her friend is probably in love with her, but she is unable to love him back. She loves spending time with him, but she just can't force her feelings beyond their friendship. He has become her key to survival and their friendship keeps her from falling apart over her broken love. Therefore she wishes to take them higher. To enable her to love her friend.
