Higher Love

Composed by

Steve Winwood / Whitney Houston

Arranged by

UK Soul Choirs

Higher Love


oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh


Think about it, there must be higher love

Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above

Without it, life is wasted time

Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine


Things look so bad everywhere

In this whole world, what is fair?

We walk the line and try to see

Falling behind in what could be


chorus:

Bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love (oh oh)

Bring me a higher love

Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?


oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh



sops: Worlds are turning and we're just hanging on

Facing our fear and standing out there alone

A yearning, and it's real to me

There must be someone who's feeling for me

Altos / tenors: oo oo oo etc

Feeling for me


Things look so bad everywhere

In this whole world, what is fair?

We walk the line and try to see

Falling behind in what could be

(sops: oh oh)


Bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love (oh oh)

Bring me a higher love

Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?


Bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love (oh oh)

Bring be a higher love

I could rise above on a higher love


I will wait

for it

I'm not

too late for it

Until then,

I'll sing my song

To cheer

the night along


Ooooh oh!


Bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love (oh oh)

Bring me a higher love

Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?


Bring me a higher love

Bring me a higher love (oh oh)

Bring be a higher love

I could rise above on a higher love


oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh bring higher love, love

oh, oh, oh bring higher love

I could rise above on a higher love!

I Found Lovin’ at the Bus Stop!


It’s like,

It's like sugar, so sweet

Good enough to eat

When I feel the funk, I give in

Get upon yo' feet


It’s like sugar, like sugar, like sugar, like sugar

It’s like sugar, like sugar, like sugar, like sugar

It’s like sugar, like sugar, like sugar, like sugar

It’s like sugar, like sugar, like sugar!


Why with the state that I'm in

Everybody here is dancing

All I wanna do is get ya

Body next to mine,

Baby won't you stand up to me

Come around and make a move

Maybe teach ya something like this

Funky, funky groove


It's like sugar, so sweet

Good enough to eat

When I feel the funk, I give in

Get upon yo' feet


Bus Stop, Bus Stop

Are you ready! To do the bus stop

Bus stop, Bus stop

Form a line to the front

Form a line to the back

Are you ready! To do the bus stop

Four to the front

Front back front back

Bus Stop, Bus Stop

People are you ready! To do the bus stop


Ah!

ah! I found some lovin’


I search for love before

For a love that I thought I couldn't find

I searched day in and day out

For a love that’s mine all mine

I played around with love before

I was silly and you know that I played the fool

But then you came and took my life and you changed it

Cause I know what I want and where it's at


I found lovin'

Since I found you

I'm in love with you

I found lovin'

Since I found you

I'm in love with you

I found lovin’

Oooh


Yeah! Ooh I found love

Yeah! Ooh I found love

Ashé mo re, ashé mo re, Ashé mo re, ashé mo re

Zippin' up my boots
Goin' back to my roots, yeah To the place of my birth Back down to earth X2

Drenched and soaked with pain Tired of short time benefits
And being exposed to the elements

I'm homeward bound
Got my head turned around

Back to my roots, Back to my roots, Ooh, ah

Zippin' up my boots
Goin' back to my roots, yeah To the place of my birth Back down to earth

Ain't talkin' 'bout the roots in the land Talkin' 'bout the roots in the man
I feel my spirit's gettin' old
It's time to recharge my soul

I'm homeward bound
Got my head turned around

You light my fire
I feel alive with you, baby You blow my mind
I'm satisfied

You light my fire (parts split)
I feel alive with you, baby You blow my mind
I'm satisfied

ooh ahhh

Girl, you knock me out Excited
It makes me wanna shout

Outstanding (harmonies)
Girl, you knock me out Excited
It makes me wanna shout

Too Good at Goodbyes

Composed by

Sam Smith

Arranged by

UK Soul Choirs


TOO GOOD AT GOODBYES


V1

You must think that I'm stupid

You must think that I'm a fool

You must think that I'm new to this

But I have seen this all before


I'm never gonna let you close to me

Even though you mean the most to me

'Cause every time I open up, it hurts

So I'm never gonna get too close to you

Even when I mean the most to you

In case you go and leave me in the dirt


But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry

And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry

And every time you walk out, the less I love you

Baby, we don't stand a chance, it's sad but it's true


I'm way too good at goodbyes

(I'm way too good at goodbyes)

I'm way too good at goodbyes

(I'm way too good at goodbyes)


V2

(tenors) I know you're thinking I'm heartless

(altos) I know you're thinking I'm cold

(sops)I’m just protecting my innocence

I'm just protecting my soul


I'm never gonna let you close to me (oooh close to me)

Even though you mean the most to me (oooh most to me)

'Cause every time I open up, it hurts

So I'm never gonna get too close to you (ooh close to you)

Even when I mean the most to you (oooh close to you)

In case you go and leave me in the dirt


But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry

And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry

And every time you walk out, the less I love you

Baby, we don't stand a chance, it's sad but it's true



I'm way to good at goodbyes

(I'm way to good at goodbyes)

I'm way too good at goodbyes

(I'm way too good at goodbyes)

No way that you'll see me cry

(No way that you'll see me cry)

I'm way too good at goodbyes

(I'm way too good at goodbyes)


I'm way to good

at goodbyes

I'm way too good

at goodbyes


No way that you'll

see me cry

I'm way too good



But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry

And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry

And every time you walk out, the less I love you

Baby, we don't stand a chance, it's sad but it's true


I'm way to good at goodbyes

(I'm way to good at goodbyes)

I'm way too good at goodbyes

(I'm way too good at goodbyes)

No way that you'll see me cry

Killing Me Softly / Everything is Everything


My Pain

My Life

Strumming my pain

Singing my life


Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly with his song


Solo:

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style

And so I came to see him, to listen for a while

And there he was, this young boy,

All: a stranger to my eyes


Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly with his song


Wooah

La la la

Woah

La

Woah

La


I wrote these words (I wrote these words) for everyone who struggles in their youth (youth)

Who won't accept deception (deception), instead of what is truth (truth)

It seems we lose the game

Before we even start to play

Who made these rules? (Who made these rules?)

We're so confused (We're so confused)

Easily led astray

Let me tell ya that

Everything is everything

Everything is everything

After winter, (after winter) must come spring (must come spring)

Everything is everything


La la la la

La la la la


La la la

Woah

La


My Pain

Strumming my pain

Singing my life


Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words
