“UP WHERE WE BELONG”

Performed by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes

 

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In a world few hearts survive
All I know is the way I feel
When it’s real, I keep it alive

 

The road is long
There are mountains in our way
But we climb a step every day

 

LORD lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
LORD lift us up where we belong
Far from the world below
Up where the clear winds blow

 

Some hang on to used to be
Live their lives looking behind
All we have is here and now
All our lives, out there to find

 

The road is long
There are mountains in our way
But we climb a step every day

 

LORD lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
LORD lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know
Where the clear winds blow

 

Time goes by
No time to cry
Life’s you and I
Alive today

 

LORD lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know
Where the clear winds blow
