I've been so many places, I've seen so many things
But none quite so lovely as you
More beautiful than the Mona Lisa
Worth more than gold
And my eyes have the pleasure to behold

You're my latest and my greatest
My latest, my greatest inspiration

Things never looked clearer, peace within never felt nearer
My burden's gone, it's turned to a song
Tender as a baby's touch, I needed you, oh, so much
At last the load is so light

You're the latest and my greatest
My latest, my greatest inspiration

I plan to give you all that I have
I'll be everything, everything you think I am
You make life a joy to live
And I'm thankful, yes, I'm blessed just to know you

I've been so many places, I've seen so many things
But none quite so delectable as you
More beautiful than the Mona Lisa
Worth more than gold
And my eyes have the pleasure just to behold

You're my latest, tell you you're my greatest
My latest, my greatest inspiration
You inspire me, inspire me
Don't you know, my latest, my greatest inspiration

You keep just keep on liftin' me up now
(Higher) Mmm
(Higher) You inspire me, I want you to keep liftin' me up
(Higher)
(Higher)

I want you to keep on liftin' me up
(Higher) Alright
(Higher) Alright
See, you got me, you got me doin' things
(Higher) I've never done before
(Higher) See, you inspire me, you inspire me

Don't you know I love you, girl
(Higher) Hey, hey, hey
(Higher) Mmm, mmm, hmm
You, you, you, you keep on liftin' me
(Higher) Higher
(Higher) Higher

Higher, higher, you, you, you keep on liftin' me
(Higher) Higher
(Higher) Higher
Oh, oh
(Higher) You keep on liftin' me
(Higher) You keep on liftin' me
You know what you do to me

Come on keep on liftin' me
(Higher) High
(Higher) Higher
