Guitars, harmony vocals, mandolin, bass, brushes, ukelele

Story Behind the Song

After reading "Eat Pray Love," I was inspired by the monk Ketut Liyer, and his philosophy. There is no heaven or hell, it's all the same - just depends on how you get there, by struggling or by enjoying. This song affirms the route of happiness and joy - The High Road

Broadjam Member Reviews

sparse intro works nicely to enhance the presence of the vocal. Second verse opens up nicely to pull the listener in. very nice vocal timbre and style - works well with the subtle harmonies. nice lyrics, nice break at about 2:20 to work back into the main theme. Very nice work and very enjoyable.

    - Kent Webb
Lyrics

High Road
Lyrics and music by BK

I heard a wise man tell
Heaven and hell were both the same-same
He went on to say
The only difference is the way
One way up
One way down
And in the end he found it didn't matter

I wanna take the high road
Stop along the way
Drive along the ocean
Go swimming for the day
Take the time, enjoy the ride
When all is said and done
May as well have fun
And take the high road

I knew a clever girl
Thought she knew the world
From reading all the books and warning labels
could barely get up from the table
"All my life
I did everything right"
And in the end she found it didn't matter

I wanna take the high road
Smile from way deep down
Take a year and wander
Just listening to the sound
Of my Heart
Fall apart
And get back up again
Just say when
I wanna take the high road
High road
