Higher Higher


Kimberley Looijen…een fantastische danseres / choreografe met hartstochtelijke en ingetogen expressie. Lied stamt uit 1974 een heus commune lied van HOLE AND CORNER…maar wat geeft het? Tijd bestaat niet ‘inside the clock’.

En de tekst blijft actueel met een nieuwe, wereldwijde godsdienst strijd waar de mens zijn eigen verantwoordelijkheid zoveel mogelijk op de ander probeert af te schuiven.

words / music Bert Smeets; with an extended choreography from Kimberley Looijen graduated from dance academy Utrecht. Many thanks to cinema Lumiere, Maastricht Anna Nita. Student Hotel Maastricht and Karel for trying to fly and the beautiful landscape of Jekerdal / Apostelhoeve

PEOPLE ARE JUST TRYING (to get higher)

With their goddamn orders and their goddamn signs

and their goddamn feelings coming out of the blue sky

when they try to catch you with every footstep on the ground oh my oh my oh my

Who are all those drawers and their million lines

their drawing for you all day dark

now it sticks to your human relations

one by one oh my oh my

People are just trying, trying trying

Trying to get higher- higher…higher

Even if you are a perfect liar, perfection gets you sometimes

now you you’ve got to show-up, too much to handle

there’s no happy-ending, no happy-ending oh my

oh my people are just trying..

trying to get higher

come on babe tell me what you find is it nothing

nothing but loving just nothing

nothing but loving

come on babe tell me what you find is it loving

nothing but loving just loving, nothing but loving yeah

So come on babe take me in your arms and

rock me sweetly in a heavenly prime 

let me look for the day I’m deadly near by now

to-night-to-night babe I’m just trying …
