Thunder — Higher Ground lyrics

I feel the wind blow on the corner
And I'm looking down along this dead end street
All the people are getting older
But they don't give a damn their lives are incomplete
It don't look no better than it did before
And I know what's happening behind each door
If I don't get out today, I'm gonna waste my life away
And that's a part that I can't play
Chorus:
I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town, I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground, we've got to steal away
As a young boy I didn't fit in, and I knew it then I wouldn't be the same
But that was only in the beginning
And as the time rolled on deeper grew the pain
So give me one good reason why I should stay
I think I've got enough money for the late night train
There's a world you've never seen, but I've been there in my dreams
It's calling out to me
Chorus
(Solo)
If I don't get out today, I'm gonna waste my life away
I'm gonna waste my life away, and that's a part that I can't play
Chorus repeats 2x
You and me baby, we've got to steal away, turn it on, turn it on
