Higher Power - Boston


The Experience: We can't win all the battles on our own, and the first step to victory is recognizing this. That's the case in alchohol addiction, which is what this song's about. The world is spinning, but I'm not afraid, cause my strength goes beyond me: a higher power. I can start anew.  It's the beginning of another dayBut this means willingness to rely on that power, implying a loss of "control" on my part. Am I willing to take that risk?

Music Video: Music video's didn't matter when rock was about the music itself, and Boston never made one, at least for this song.


My Take: It's hard to tell an Almighty Transcendence "Thy will, not mine, shall be done." It's even harder to live it. But sooner or later we all come face to face with our own weakness, and those of us who've taken this risk have experienced a power enabling us to accomplish things we never dreamed of.

Ask Yourself: Do you rely on a higher power? What importance do you give to your relationship with God?



LYRICS

Hey, my higher power
Yea, give me the power

Let me love you
Take me home to your religion for the night
Let me touch you
Teach me how to see your vision through my eyes
Turn the pages
Tell my story, let me face another day
Safe embraces, I feel it coming now
My captain's on his way

Hey, my higher power
The world is spinning, but I'm not afraid
Yea, give me the power
It's the beginning, the beginning of another day

Yeah

Let me hold you
Take me back into the secrets of my mind
Let me know you
Come and save me Lord
Don't let me cross the line

Hey, my higher power
The world is spinning, but I'm not afraid
Yeah, give me the power
It's the beginning, the beginning of another day

God, 
grant me the serenity 
To accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference
Thy will, not mine, shall be done. Amen.

Hey, my higher power
The world is spinning, but I'm not afraid
Yea, my higher power
It's the beginning of another day (2x)

Hey, my higher power

Yea, my higher power
Hey, my higher power
