about

“ There’s a pretty great 1970s pop/rock vibe running rampant throughout the course of Higher. But the players in Dietrich Jon temper that stylized sound with a spontaneity that belies the practiced musicianship that lies beneath. ” - Indie-Music.com

Track Name: S.Y.B.G.
Woke up one day,
All my feelings gone
Hoping someday
I'd know where we went wrong

Since you've been gone
I've been wondering where to go
Where I belong
Maybe we're meant to be all alone

Everybody has a plan of attack
Once it starts off
There's no turning back

Since you've been gone
I've been wondering where to go
Where I belong
Maybe we're meant to be all alone
Track Name: Lions
Saw your note by the sink
O, wasn't I surprised
Took your money and a knife
And ran through the night
To a place you know I'd never
Been before, grab a blanket by the door
And breathe, like a kite in a storm
Keeping track of every spin
Like a dance, you'll never win or lose
You decide, either way I'm cutting off
The line, watch you flutter past the horizon.

Listen to your lions, listen to the little king inside.
Always trying to shake your mane and join the pride.

You awake? Keep it down while our parents are asleep.
Lets cut corners and red tape tonight.
Lets run through the rain till the walls come crashing down,
And our banners wipe the flames.

Listen to your lions, listen to the little king inside.
Always trying to shake your mane and join the pride.
Track Name: Her
Everyday it's the same old story
Same old cup of dirt, same old boring guys at work.
They don't see that your heart is breaking,
They don't realize what's going on inside your head.

Cos if there's one thing you keep thinking of
You keep on falling more in love with her.
Cos every single goddamn day you didn't have the guts to say 'Hello'
And if there's one thing you keep thinking of, it's her.

Sleepless nights staring at the ceiling
All your life you've been waiting for a girl like her.
You don't see that you're luck is fading,
You could take this chance, instead you wait another day.

Cos if there's one thing you keep thinking of
You keep on falling more in love with her.
But today she puts her lipstick on, tomorrow she may have Another man.
And if there's one thing you keep thinking of, it's her.

See her walking 'cross the street?
If you hurry, maybe you could catch a glimpse of her.
Then your heart stops by a bus-stop, in a raincoat,
She's all alone just talk to her

So you say you've seen her round,
And you're feeling like a clown.
When you turn around, she smiles.

She says 'there's one thing I kept thinking of.
I wondered if you'd ever talk to me'
So you take her by the hand and say
You've waited all your life to hear her name.

And when they get on to the bus together
He can't believe he's with her.
When they get onto the bus together
He can't believe he's with her
Track Name: Higher
Like the Christmas lights around your window
I found a way to make you smile.
Though I'm not a knight in shining armor
I could make you happy for a while.

You can take me higher.

We're just meat beneath the covers,
Little monsters, little girls.
So let me hold this tiny monster
'Till there's nothing left to hold.

You can take me higher.

We don't have to talk, we don't have to fight
We can make this work for another night
'Till the sun comes up on a brighter town
'Till this falls apart and were better off alone.

You can take me higher.
