    The lyrics to this song which is sung by Barbara Streisand was shared with me recently and I thought I would share it here because I know who brought me through the hell Ive been through and who is bringing me out with my Higher Powers messengers. even here, all of you are messengers and thank you. The whole CD is spiritual and uplifting.

    Higher Ground-Barbara Streisand

    Walk me over
    this horizon
    let the sun's light
    warm my face
    once again the times are changin
    once again i lost my way
    well the words of ancient poets
    fall like dust upon my shoes
    grief has robbed me of my vision
    turned my heart from higher truths
    so take my hand
    and lift me higher
    be my love and my desire
    hold me safe
    and honor bound
    take my heart to
    higher ground
    I have walked
    too long in darkness
    I have walked
    too long alone
    blindly clutching
    fists of diamonds
    that i found were only stones
    i would trade the world of ages
    for a warmer hand to hold
    the path of light is narrow
    but it leads to streets of gold
    so take my hand
    and lift me higher
    be my love and my desire
    hold me safe
    and honor bound
    take my heart to
    higher ground

    in this world
    we move through shadows
    never sure
    of what we see
    while the truth that lies between us
    come and share the truth with me
    so take my hand
    and lift me higher
    be my love and my desire
    hold me safe
    and honor bound
    take my heart to
    higher
    higher ground

    Thanks :) Speaking of songs...I think "Unwell" by Matchbox 20 has some interesting lyrics...it just seems to fit with what many of us are experiencing...at least the part i remember (I don't know the whole thing but the chorus goes something like this):

    "i'm not crazy
    i'm just a little unwell,
    right now
    i know you can't tell
    but stay a while
    and maybe then you'll see
    a different side of me..."

    ok i don't remember how the rest of it goes...does anyone else?

    Here are the full lyrics to Unwell, by Matchbox 20

    All day
    Staring at the ceiling
    Making friends with shadows on my wall
    All night
    Hearing voices telling me
    That I should get some sleep
    Because tomorrow might be good for something
    Hold on
    I'm feeling like I'm headed for a
    Breakdown
    I don't know why
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know, right now you can't tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
    A different side of me
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
    I know, right now you don't care
    But soon enough you're gonna think of me
    And how I used to be
    Me
    Talking to myself in public
    Dodging glances on the train
    I know
    I know they've all been talking 'bout me
    I can hear them whisper
    And it makes me think there must be something wrong
    With me
    Out of all the hours thinking
    Somehow
    I've lost my mind
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know, right now you can't tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
    A different side of me
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
    I know right now you don't care
    But soon enough you're gonna think of me
    And how I used to be
    I been talking in my sleep
    Pretty soon they'll come to get me
    Yeah, they're taking me away
    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I know, right now you can't tell
    But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
    A different side of me
    I'm not crazy I'm just a little impaired
    I know, right now you don't care
    But soon enough you're gonna think of me
    And how I used to be
    Hey, how I used to be
    How I used to be, yeah
    Well I'm just a little unwell
    How I used to be
    How I used to be

    Wow, I've listened to that song quite often...
    Lyrics didn't have quite the impact until now...
