Matt Nathanson – Come On, Get Higher lyrics

I miss the sound of your voice
And I miss the rush of your skin
And I miss the still of your silence
As you breathe out and I breathe in
If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what's next
I'd make you believe
I'd make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the sound of your voice
The loudest thing in my head
And I ache to remember
All the violent, sweet, perfect words that you said
If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what's next
I'd make you believe
I'd make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the pull of your heart
I taste the sparks on your tongue
I see angels and devils and God, when you come on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Singin' sha la la la
Singin' sha la la la la

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me, drown me in love

So wrong, So wrong
So wrong, So right
So come on, get higher
So come on and get higher
'Cause everything works, love
Everything works in your arms

    Its about a girl he was with. It was a great experiance and they had the total connection. Somewhere along the way he scared her away. Now all he wants is to hear her voice and go back to the way it was, and make her forget what he said or did that drove her away. I think the most powerful part of the song is when he says "i taste the sparks on your tongue... I see angles and devils and god when you come" I think he is talking about how amazing it is to feel her orgasim.

    To me its someone talking about someone they love, someone who doesn't return their love.
    He is wishing that she come to him, he is dreaming, fantasising of her, I get this impresion from such parts as 'i taste the sparks on your tongue', where I think he is trying so hard to imagin it's almost as if he can feel and tast her, like it's real.
    I think this is true love, that he truely loves her and wont give up, he's telling her to get higher on life and just give it a go, to have 'faith' and 'desire' and is incouraging her to drown in love with him, rather than just him drowning.

    This song isn't about s**! Things song might not or might be about love! But to me. About the way someone looks at you. The way my baby looks at me makes me feel like I can fly. Like nothing else mattersa but him and I. And when he gives me that smile that he has, I feel like I might fain. I feel like I'm the luckiest girl in the world!

    I was engaged four months ago and this song was the first song he and I listened to together. Back when we were fifteen riding the bus home from school. It has been tough to let go of my best friend and the love of my life. This song describes it perfectly. My favorite part is "if i could walk on water i would tell you what's next". It's like saying god is the only one that knows how this will all play out. Basically I think this song says don't let go remember what we had.

    Nathaniel kenyon got me here you guys. But for the song meaning its probably talking about being apart of the person you love and how all the memories start flashing! And how you want everything back, but still you're too deep into your dreams that you can't take a stand and make a change. I'm I right? Cause this comment is just added to let people know that nathneil is the reason why I'm here lol;$$
