It is their most successful single in terms of chart position and sales, rising to #3 on the U.S.Pop chart, the group's first (and only) top-ten pop single. It also reached #2 on the U.S. Album Rock Tracks chart. The success of "High Enough" helped send its parent album into the Top 20 on the U.S. albums chart.
"High Enough" is a rock ballad and the first release off of Damn Yankees.
'High Enough' was about how you love someone so much and you just don't want to scare them away. And it's like, do I take the next step? And then she freaks out when you go, 'I love you.' And it's like, 'What!?!? I'm outta here!' And you're, 'Wait a minute! Come back!' But then the girl comes back, because in the bridge it's, (singing) 'The next thing I remember I was running back for more.' You know how you get scared at first when you fall in love, and everybody freaks out, and that can't be right. And then you go, Wait a minute, this is great, let's forget about the past. Can you fly me over yesterday? Can you take me high enough to fly me over yesterday?
