Lyrics

I remember it like it was yesterday
I still remember that wonderful feeling
There was nothing I couldn’t do
Like playing skip on a playground at school

Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
Higher than anybody else
Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
When I was a kid I believed in myself

Did I stop living at 13
Since then there’s always been something in the way
I stopped touching life and I stopped giving
When did I start feeling afraid

Can’t do this can’t let myself do that
When did life become so drab
My false opinions run deep embedded in my skin
I’m somewhere breathing underneath as that kid

Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
Higher than anybody else
Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
When I was a kid I believed in myself

My habits hold me insecurity controls me I’m dying slowly
Got to let go got to get out of my way

Got to get back to that feeling I had
Feel the hope like I did through the heart of a child
Wake up each morning feel light all around
Knowing I can do anything I want to that I set my mind to

Reach up high to the sky, fly in heaven
My paradise on earth
My faith restored, my heart can soar
I want to live now want to feel alive

Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
Higher than anybody else
Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
Like when I was a kid

Reaching higher and higher, higher and higher
Higher than anybody else
Reaching higher and higher, higher and higher
When I was a kid - when I believed in
Want to believe in … I got to believe in my self
