lyrics

High note
There were all of those things, you weren’t supposed to do
Yes my my my my my my my they were talkin’ to you
There were all of those words, that you shouldn’t have said
Like a dagger thrown, carry weight of lead
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Listen now that it’s known, and the way has been shown
Yes my my my my my my my my my you have grown
Gather all of the rain, and every ounce of the pain
Wash the dirt and dust on down the drain
Lit’s livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
And if ya gotta sing low, sometimes the way to go
Joe looked over at dave, he was thinking he had it made
Dave looked over at paul, he was thinking he had it all
Paul looked over at steve, who was steadily moving
Towards what he believes
He was livin’ on the high note
He was livin’ on the high note
He was livin’ on the high note
If ya gotta sing low, sometimes the way to go
Keep ya head up head up better better
Keep livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
Livin’ on the high note
