Here's how I get high
Here's how I get high

I felt so out of place
'Till you danced your dance of grace
I saw a hope of faith
Shining there
(in the tale you told)

I was a dying man
'Till I heard the song you sang
And I grabbed your ravaged hand
Reaching out
(in the tale you told)

And now love cast it's spell
In the tale you tell
How I can fly
Up to a holy place
Dancing a dance of grace

That's how I get high
That's how I get high

I cried as faith unlatched
The door to your photograph
I heard the angels laugh
Echoing there
(in the tale you told)

I was afraid to hope
Until I read the words you wrote
And I hung on every quote
Living there
(in the tale you told)

And now love cast it's spell
In the tale you tell
How I can fly
Up to a holy place
Dancing a dance of grace

That's how I get high
That's how I get high

I feel so out of place
Will you dance your dance of grace
Now?
