Highland

Lyrics: Jerry Wallace
Music: Jerry Wallace

I'm looking for the Highland
Searching for the high road
I want to see what the world really looks like
Standing on the mountain top

I'm looking for a highway
Listening for a higher call
Well the world may think I'm crazy
But I just can't stop
I'm looking for the highland

Well this valley's so deep
There's a misty haze
I can see a mountain in the distance
Lord, it looks so far away

Oh, but I'm not gonna stop
No, I've made my choice
I'm following the path set before me
And I'm listening to that still, small voice

And the road leads always upwards
There's a tingle in the air
I hear a voice deep down inside saying
You're almost there

I'm looking for the Highland
Searching for the high road
I want to see what the world really looks like
Standing on the mountain top

I'm looking for a highway
Listening for a higher call
Well the world may think I'm crazy
But I just can't stop

Well I can see it up there
That city on a hill
Sparkling like a diamond, just like gold
Oh, it really gives my heart a thrill

Well, it's alive, you know
Built with living stones
And I am just a pilgrim in this valley
For I know that city really is my home

I am one of am awesome number
I can see I'm not alone
I can hear the Spirit saying
Boy, you're almost home

I'm looking for the Highland
Searching for the high road
I want to see what the world really looks like
Standing on the mountain top

I'm looking for a highway
Listening for a higher call
Well the world may think I'm crazy
But I just can't stop

I'm looking for the Highland
Searching for the high road
I want to see what the world really looks like
Standing on the mountain top

I'm looking for a highway
Listening for a higher call
Well the world may think I'm crazy
But I just can't stop
I'm looking for the highland
