You Take Me Higher

After singing all these covers, I performed one of my originals. “You Take Me Higher” is one my favorite songs. I wrote it a long time ago. Melvin Dorn produced the music for it, and the song kicked off a collaboration between Mel, Quincy (his musical partner, at that time) and myself. We created some cool stuff together.

Story Behind The Song

The song is about a relationship that is both good and bad for you. Now, there are always good and bad sides to everyone, and thus, also to a relationship. So, it makes the topic very recognizable. Getting pulled in and enjoying the good parts, while you sort of realize it might not be the best thing for you.

Nevertheless, there’s just a real positive vibe to this song, which I really love. It’s so much fun to sing (and hopefully for you to listen to).

I wrote the lyrics in 2012 and mentioned the song, several times, on my website. Maybe you’ve even heard the song before when it received some airplay.

It was a long time ago, since I sung this song. You can tell from my serious looks. I tried to remember the lyrics and adlibs. I’m sure the timing’s off from my original recorded version. Anyway, that’s how you can tell it’s really live singing! Haha!

BTW, I record everything, the video and song, in one take. So, it’s kind of a live performance. Enjoy.



When you come around, you take me higher
Make me feel so light, I feel I’m flying
When you come around, you take me higher
You make me feel like I’m on fire tonight

Verse 1

You sure took your time to come and see me this time
I thought you changed your mind
You never miss a beat, you always do this to me
I should’ve known that you’re not that kind
’Cos even though you’re no good for me
I swear there’s no better chemistry
Than the one we share
So when you say the word, you know I’ll be there ‘cos


Verse 2

You knock me out
Leave me down for the count
With such little things
I must be under your spell
’Cos you’re playing me well
I’m like your puppet on a string
I must be losing my mind, ‘cos time after time
I see the writing on the wall
It’s like something’s got a hold, that I can’t control
I see you and I fall

You take me higher
Higher and higher
You take me higher
