Your love is lifting me higher
          Em7/D     Em7-5/D     D   D

So keep it up, quench my desire
	Em7/D       Em7-5/D      D  D
And I'll be at your side forever more


Now once, I was downhearted
Disappointment was my closest friend
But then you came and he soon departed
And you know he never showed his face again


Instrumental (one verse)


     D       D7         E/D    E/D
I'm so glad I finally found you
         Em7/D     Em7-5/D     D   D
Yes, that one in a million girl
         D         D7           E/D      E/D
When you wrap your loving' arms around me
           Em7/D     Em7-5/D       D     D
I can stand up and face the world again


Your love is lifting me higher
Than I've ever been lifted before
So keep it up, quench my desire
And I'll be at your side forever more

Higher and Higher - Rita Coolidge
Higher and Higher

(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher is a R&B song originally performed by Jackie Wilson in 1967 and covered by Rita Coolidge in 1977.

Rita Coolidge remade the song as "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher" for her 1977 album Anytime...Anywhere. Coolidge's version "...Higher and Higher" is more mid-tempo than the driving original and largely omits the chorus which is evidenced only in the background vocals sung under the repetition of the first verse with which Coolidge closes the song.

Coolidge and her sister Priscilla Jones had sung background on a version of the song for a prospective album by Jones' husband Booker T. Jones; when that album was shelved Coolidge asked Booker T. Jones if she could cut the song using his arrangement.
