    Lyrics

    You've got your favourite programmes
    The bird, the dog, two cats
    One of your babies will always
    Ring on the weekend for a chat

    A beautiful garden
    Too easily getting out of hand
    How can you concentrate at all?

    On the high ground
    You're there on your own
    From the high ground

    And from down here we can feel it
    You can move the mountain with your pain
    They all want to be near you
    And then too soon drive home again
    'Cause grief is like that
    And you're like a captain on her ship -
    In the end you stand alone

    On the high ground
    You're there on your own
    From the high ground
    You see the mourners have gone home
    On the high ground
    You're there on your own

    The city is spreading
    Soon only numbers will be pure
    And you are retreating

    And now I walk between tables
    Hide in the bathroom for some peace
    They want to know what has happened
    We can't tell the truth it must be lived
    Over and over
    'Til it floats up into the sky
    To your beautiful baby

    On the high ground
    You're there on your own
    From the high ground
    You see the mourners have gone home
    On the high ground
    You're there on your own

    Days of our Lives and Dr Katz
    You've got a few friends left
    But she's never coming back
    She was the one with the questions
    And the big blue eyes
    On that high ground
