High Enough, Lagu Bikinan Para Jawara

"Can you fly me over yesterday? Can you take me high enough to fly me over yesterday?" 

Sebuah ajakan untuk melupakan masa lalu.... High Enough merupakan single pertama Damn Yankees, supergrup bentukan Jack Blades dari Night Ranger, Tommy Shaw dari Styx, dan Ted Nugen dari Amboy Dukes, serta Michael Cartellone (yang kemudian hari bergabung dengan Lynyrd Skynyrd). 


Blades bercerita, pada suatu hari di apartemen Tommy Shaw di New York City ia bersenandung. Tentang sesuatu terkait tak ingin mendengar cerita lalu. Saat mendengar itu Shaw tertarik. Mereka lalu coba memainkannya dengan piano dan gitar. Mereka butuh setengah jam untuk menuntaskan lagu tersebut. Lagu yang rilis tahun 1990 dalam album 'Damn Yankees' ini berhasil menjadi tiga besar di tangga lagu Hot 100. Sementara itu buat Ted Nugent yang mendapatkan imej 'Motor City Madman', High Enough menjadi top ten single terbaiknya. Lagu ini juga muncul di sejumlah film Hollywood seperti Nothing But Trouble, Gremlins 2: The New Batch,  dan The Taking of Beverly Hills.

High Enough
I don't wanna hear about it anymore
It's a shame I've got to live without you anymore
There's a fire in my heart
A pounding in my brain
It's driving me crazy

We don't need to talk about it anymore
Yesterday's just a memory
Can we close the door

I just made one mistake
I didn't know what to say
When you called me baby

Don't say goodnight
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh, whoa, all the way

Can you take me high enough
To fly me over (fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Yesterday's just a memory
(Yesterday's just a memory and)

I don't want to live without you anymore
Can't you see I'm in misery
And you know for sure
I would live and die for you
And I'd know just what to do when you call me baby

Don't say goodbye
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh, whoa, all the way

Can you take me high enough
Can you fly me over (fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Yesterday's just a memory

I'm running
I was running for the door
The next thing I remember
I was running back for more, yeah

Don't say goodbye
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh, whoa, all the way (all the way, all the way, yeah)

Can you take me high enough
Can you fly me over (fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over, whoa, whoa, whoa

Can you take me high enough
Won't you fly me over (won't you fly me over) yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over, whoa, whoa, whoa
