Higher
The Naked and Famous Lyrics


Higher, high

Like we understood
Made with adrenaline
Seeping out through the skin
Like only lovers could
Here's where we begin
Time is the medicine
To heal these needs
That only raise our voices

Higher, higher
Tonight we raise the dead
Tonight we bury this in fire, fire
Under the shape of years
And the weight that brought us here

But we can separate
To form these hearts in stone
Rewrite this pain we own
Caught here in the wake
Nothing but genuine
Built on a skeleton
Of fractured parts
That only raise our voices

Higher, higher
Tonight we raise the dead
Tonight we bury this in fire, fire
Under the shape of years
And the weight that brought us here

Better believe the sea of changes
And put these battered bones to rest
Nothing invisible or nameless
Leave no reason to confess (confess)

Higher, higher
Tonight we raise the dead
Tonight we bury this in fire, fire
Under the shape of years
And the weight

Higher, higher (higher, higher, higher)
Tonight we raise the dead
Tonight we bury this in fire, fire
Under the shape of years
And the weight that brought us here

Better believe the sea of changes
And put these battered bones to rest (rest)
Nothing invisible or nameless
Leave no reason to confess
(And raise our voices)
Higher, higher

Alyssa is amazing. Tom is talented as hell. They are criminally underrated

Nate bro, the market dictates whether they are underrated, not you, and the market is VERY efficient...now put that in your crappy pipe and smoke it.

Charlie McKnight

Agreed. So freaking talented.

This is beautiful. I love this band's sound on the studio recording, but this stripped down treatment is really something special. The lack of production really showcases the vocal talent here. Absolutely gorgeous.

I feel so fortunate that these two channeled the pain of their breakup into such an amazing record -- thanks Alisa & Thom, I'm sure that wasn't easy. But man, was it worth it for us fans.

Why did they break up?

Colin Higgins

to those wondering, these are the chord progressions for guitar:

standard e
capo 4th

Intro/chorus: Am - F - C
F - Am - G (keep that index finger on first fret on B string)
then she starts singing:
F - Am - G
C - F - Am - G

hope this helps

Jamie Blair

This was super helpful but for anyone trying to play this out on the last two lines of the verses and chorus they switch the progression to C-F-C-G
