Ooh, ooh, babe

Ooh, you've been my inspiration
And I've loved you for so long
In my times of desperation
I was weak and your love made me strong

So in those times when you can't stop
The rain from falling
When you raise your voice
Think no one hears you calling
When you need someone
And you think you've looked everywhere
You better think again
'Cause baby, I'll be there

I'll be standing (I'll be standing)
On higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing (I'll be standing)
On higher ground
I'll be there for you
I will care for you
Oh, I swear to you
I won't let you down

No way, ooh, ooh, babe

Oh, these hands were made to help you
Just to touch you and to give
All the love that you've been giving me
And in my heart is where you live

So in those times when you can't stop
The rain from falling
When you raise your voice
Think no one hears you calling
When you need someone
And you think you've looked everywhere
You better think again
`Cause baby, I'll be there

I'll be standing (I'll be standing)
On higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing (I'll be standing)
On higher ground
I'll be there for you
I will care for you
I swear to you
No, I won't let you down

Higher ground
Is the place I found
Through the love you gave to me
When I was down
Mmm, the highest part
In every heart
Is when you give to someone else
Without thinking of yourself

I'll be standing
On higher ground
When the water's getting deep
And there's no one else around

I`ll be standing (I'll be standing)
On higher ground
I'll be there for you
I will care for you
Oh, I swear to you
I won't let you down
