Higher Love

Today’s video prompt is “Higher Love” as sung by Steve Winwood and his daughter, Lilly.  There are a few very slight changes in the lyrics, but it’s sung at a much slower tempo than the original hit by Steve.  Take a listen, read the lyrics, mull it over, and write a little Flashy Fiction that revolves around “Higher Love”.  Your protagonist could be searching for it, experiencing it, falling out of it …or simply listening to it.

Write something and share it!

*Here are the lyrics if you want to read over them

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart and in the stars above
Without it, life is a 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 blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where’s that higher love I keep thinking of?

Worlds are turning and we’re just hanging on
Facing our fear and standing out there alone
A yearning and it’s real for me
There must be someone who’s feeling for me

Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where’s that higher love I’ve been thinking of?

I will wait for it
I’m not too late for it
Until then, I’ll sing my song
To cheer the night along

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel that love come over me
Let me feel how strong it can be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
I could rise above for this higher love
