High

Sitting here wondering why  

This crazy world  

Still feels so absurd  

The things it puts us through 

 

Wondering what it is  

We’d miss so much  

If we had to give it all up  

What would we leave behind  

Lucy jones she polishes   

Her little car on Saturdays  

While in the kitchen kneeling  

Mother prays the rain will stay away  

 

Chorus: 

And I just wanna get high 

One last time  

With you  

And I  wanna  get high 

One last time  

With you  

Cause your smile ‘s the only thing 

That gets me through 

 

 

Memorizing the words  

Of purple haze  

Up till 3am  

Neighbours banging on the walls  

 

Sleeping with the curtains closed 

Till the afternoon  

Till I leave my room  

Turn my face toward the world  

 

Politicians on the news  

Are talking about the latest strain  

All the neighbours on my street  

Are trying to get through today  

 

Chorus: 

And I just wanna get  high 

One last time  

With you  

And I just wanna get high 

One last time  

With you  

Cause your smile ‘s the only thing 

That gets me through 

 

 

Lucy jones she polishes   

Her little car on Saturdays  

While In the kitchen kneeling  

Mother prays the rain will stay away 

 

Chorus: 

And I  wanna get high 

One last time  

With you  

And I just wanna get high 

One last time  

With you  

 

Cause your smile ‘s the only thing 

That gets me  

Life’s the only thing that lets me  

Loves the only drug that gets me through
