Steve Winwood - Higher Love Lyrics

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart or hidden 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 to 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 keep thinking of?

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring be a higher love
I could rise above on a higher love

I will wait for it
I'm not too late for it
Until then, I'll sing my song
To cheer the night along
Bring it... Oh bring it...

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 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?

  1. DudeinGA

    I would date ANY of the girls in this video (especially that curly black haired girl YOWZA). Steve Winwood has great taste in women for his videos, that's for sure.

  12. Tobeme

    Oh yeah Steve winwood hit it big with this 80s hit when he did this song that's when I heard of him

    William Roark

    you heard him before,.... you just weren't paying attention

  13. disoriented1

    I'm age 22 again! I was driving with that 'one' friend we all have..from Kansas City to St Louis in '86. She was driving, and as we entered STL she saw the interstate sign ' I-55 North, Chicago'...she just said..'ditch this, we're going to Chicago!' I remember this song playing on the radio as we entered Chicago at 3 am. Heavy traffic and commuter trains. I could only think..'Toto, we're not in Kansas City anymore'!

  14. Lonnie Thompson

    Steve winwood was back, in the eighties with the soundtrack to my youth , going to get to go see him finally in June

    Lonnie Thompson

  15. Bluntforce Trauma

    Who else is here because of the Bumblebee movie.

    Dennis Reynolds

  20. Sephora Stylinson

    Can't stop listening to this😩

  21. C. Smith

    Chaka Khan.

  22. Donald Gareth

    He doesn’t want to be a part time lover. He wants her to take him seriously.

  23. Dirk Sterling

    Bake me a higher loaf 🍞

  24. Night Has Fallen

    I love both this and Whitney Houston's original cover of this from the 80s.

  25. Graham Ferguson

    Had to come here after hearing that dreadful cover by James McMorrow that stripped the song of all it's joi de vivre.

    This is perfect as it is, including Winwood's incredible voice.

  26. SASSUKAS 3000

    I heard that song first time in GTA V

  27. oddsmack1972

    My most favorist song!

    Still watching in
    January 2020
    I feel like it was yesterday.
    Year: 1986
    I was 14 years old.
    MTV meant:
    Music Television
    (not Miscellaneous Television).
    📺 🎼🎵🎶
    World Premiere Videos. Mr. Steve Winwood played on the radio, and music videos were hit after hit.
    Best era ever!
    Thank you for posting.

    Love in 💕
    USA 🇺🇸
    Peace🌿 🕊

  36. Cha

    Let’s sign a petition to remove the dislike button

  37. Aaron Morris

    This is when Steve Winwood's record label did an image makeover to make him appear more like Robert Palmer. I don't think Winwood cared for the makeover though.

  38. Munchie Munch

    Such a good song

  39. Fabian Mario Sanchez

    This is a timeless classic

  40. Silver Fern KKiwi

    2020 and still number 1 !!!

  41. Luciano Almeida


  42. Lolett Petitplatsch

    So good😎

  43. Sam Malone

    I'm disappointed that I had to scroll down to number 6 to click on this song. I've listened to the remixes before and they too this goddamn master peice and somehow made it shite.

  44. comic630

    It's always sunny brought me here

     Génie pur. J'ADORE. ♥ ️ ️

  46. Alvin Govender

    Steve Vinewood, how apt.

  47. Claire Gordon

    One of best songs of all time!

  48. Craig Matthews

    The original and best

  49. Todd

    I got kicked out of my spin class for playing this.

  50. Stacy Wragg

    Love this song even in 2020,big business, bette midler ❤❤

  51. Dancing Diamond Designs

    Love Whitney but this version sends me. Steve Winwood does a fantastic job singing but this song would not be what it has been and will continue to be without Chaka Khan. Lady has always been my personal favorite! Also heard Winwood didn't actually right this. Lyrics were actually accredited to Will Jennings.

  52. Dade Murphy

    Try it at 1.25x speed

  53. Gail Spencer Choate

    0:07 Back in the day, I tried SO HARD to make my fine, super-straight, blonde hair look like this girl's. Instead, I ended up looking like a yak. Lesson learned.


    Well you still look good honey 😉


    Most beautiful yak if i ever saw one.

  54. TheKL04

    Bumblebee brought me here, and I’m better for it.

  55. MEHEDI

    Kygo's version is better. Sorry.

  56. cheezwombat1

    I'm sure there has been much more traffic thanks to sunny in Philly and Dennis' love for classic Steve Winwood

  57. roycedaprince59

    Snoop Dogg knows all about 'Higher Love'

  58. Henrique Balerone

    Los santos rock radio

  72. Celieboo

    "Let me feel that love come over me. Let me feel how strong it can be!" My favorite part of the song!

  73. SaintSadGirl

    Ok so im super spiritual....but this song sometimes plays and it makes me feel like everything will be ok

  79. Julian T

    my friends and i sang this song all weekend long in las vegas - heard it on the walkway across the strip in las vegas and it stuck with us - we proceeded to sing 4 nights in a row with random strangers - drunk as can be

    You're my Higher Love Robert Zator. I love you.

  85. Brian

    For this song alone, Steve Winwood gets an invite to at least one cookout

  86. Jonathon Earl

    Before seeing this, I always thought Phil Collins sung this song!

  87. Music Lover

    Everybody has different ideas on what a song's lyrics mean to them individually, in spite of what the writer's intended meaning is. I know I do, about this song as well as others.

  88. lowrydin

    Life is wasted time without Higher Love

  89. unbekannt namenlos

    I am born in 96 and i usually hate 80s music. But this is million times better than this stupid remix we have today!

  90. JLRules

    This song was used on a BBC trailer for _Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman_ back in 1994/95. Back then to my early-teen ears, I thought it was "Eye of Love"!


    Hello GTA!🤣

  92. Dark Blade

    Gta5 yo!

  93. Nessa Jacks

    Maori Boy

  94. Niloy Sarkar
