“Higher is about that moment when guys are afraid to commit,” says Smith. “When that happens, women start asking all the wrong questions. But, there is something you can say to a man to make him look at you differently and want that commitment. That something is the message of “Higher.”

Antonique Smith: Higher Lyrics:
Feeling like you’re telling me you wanna stay
What is it that makes you wanna go?
As we’re getting close, I feel you hesitate
Say yes, and then you tell me no
Is it that you’re thinking you’re making a mistake?
Like you might be losing your freedom?
Is that why you’re now pushing me away?
This is what I wanna let you know

Don’t you worry, I’m not trying to change you
I won’t change you
I’m only trying to elevate you
Hi-iiigher, If you let your guard down
Hi-iiigher, So let your guard down, down down down

Listen to me telling you that I’m the one,
Hear me saying this is right for us,
I just wanna know where you’re coming from
Can you tell if this is the love?
Is it that you’re thinking you’re making a mistake?
Like you might be losing your freedom?
Love, you don’t ever have to be afraid,
This is what I wanna let you know

Don’t you worry,
I’m not trying to change you
I won’t change you
I’m only trying to elevate you
Hi-iiigher, If you let your guard down
Hi-iiigher, So let your guard down, down down down

Told you you can trust me,
You never have to doubt me
All you gotta do is let it down

Don’t you worry, I’m not trying to change you
I won’t change you
I’m only trying to elevate you
Hi-iiigher,If you let your guard down
Hi-iiigher,So let your guard down, down down down
