lyrics

I've had highs and LOWS; you have highs and LOWS.
You see, we've all spent time in the wilderness.
Great days- only adventure,
And tough days when it feels like we don't know where to go.
There are days when living with no reservations is so fulfilling, and then there are other days when we regret not having more reservations.
I've had highs and LOWS; you have highs and LOWS.
-------

Am I your high or your low
Am I your high or your low
Can I let you down without letting go
The kind of thing that you can't control

Are we in motion or lost
Are we in motion or lost
Can we pretend that we never stopped
The kind of thing that comes with a cost

-------

I've had highs and LOWS; you have highs and LOWS.
He's tempted by the need for affirmation and love,
And he's looking at his ability and being tempted to just jump.
Sometimes we're tempted by the same thing,
Or things get desperate enough we're temped to jump just to end it all,
We become so self centered.
I've had highs and LOWS; you have highs and LOWS.

-------

Yeah, one day always come too late
One more try to recreate
Pragmatic, back at it
Make the most of what's on your plate

Take it back, unburn that bridge
Take it home, set fire to the fridge
It's too cold, where's your home
Need a place of your own

Cause I've got highs and LOWS
And I've got mind and soul
And we've got places to be
But we've got nowhere to go

And we've got time to grow
But there's just nothing to hold
So tell me is that high
Ever gonna be worth that low

Am I your high or your low
Am I your high or your low
Can I let you down without letting go
The kind of thing that you can't control

So tell me is that high ever gonna be worth that low

Am I your high or your low
Am I your high or your low
The kind of thing that you can't control
Am I your high or your low

--------

And still, he's in the midst of a battle. He's engaged in a battle.
His inner doubts, his demons (they're a part of his human experience)
Are forcing him to ask difficult questions.
Too often our story includes trying to be like everyone else,
Trying to be cool and accepted.
Being tempted to just jump.
We all have places in our lives that are lonely,
where we feel cut off. we feel isolated,
We feel like there's no one there.
It's a part of what keep us alive- to do something different.
I've had highs and LOWS.
I've had highs and LOWS.
Highs. LOWS.
Highs. LOWS.
Highs. LOWS.
Highs. LOWS.
Highs. LOWS.
Highs. LOWS.
