​Lift Me Up

This song is by The 4 Of Us and appears on the album Man Alive (1992).

I see the way you make men smile
They should run for a thousand miles
When pure desperation drives a nation
Makes a young boy turn wild

I need help when I know I don't
I could quit but I know I won't
When pure sensation drives a nation
Makes a young man turn wild

I blur through this maniac wild-eyed town
Throw the first punch but I hit the ground
Takes twenty minutes to bring me around
Lift me up, Lift me up, Lift me up

You say life is much too brief
Then you steal mine like a common thief
When your every expression fuels suppression
Drives a young man so wild

I need help when I know I don't
I could quit but I know I won't
When sheer desperation drives a nation
Makes a young boy turn wild

I searched for release but you shot me down
Wanted to shout but you killed the sound
Sought out the thrill but you calmed me down
Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up
