Conway Twitty – Your Love Has Taken Me That High Lyrics

There’s no need in goin’ over all the things that took me under
It’s bad enough just bein’ here without explainin’ why
There was no where else to go after bein’ next to heaven
Did you know your love had taken me that high?

Did you know your love had taken me that high
To the peaks of mountains reachin’ to the sky
You took me inside of love, a site that I have never seen before
Did you know your love had taken me that high?

There’s no use in my describin’ all the hurtin’ I’ve been hidin’
I’ve been makin’ love to shadows, just your image in my mind
I still think of the first night we laid and held each other
I never knew love could take a man that high

Did you know your love had taken me that high
To the peaks of mountains reachin’ to the sky
You took me inside of love, a site that I have never seen before
Did you know your love had taken me that high?

Did you know your love had taken me that high
To the peaks of mountains reachin’ to the sky
You took me inside of love, a site that I have never seen before
Did you know your love had taken me that high?..
