When the Lighthouse Family originally released "Lifted", it only reached #61 in the UK Singles Chart. However, they decided to re-release it as they didn't want a "good song" not to do well in the Singles Chart. After heavy promotion, it reached #4 and stayed in the UK singles Chart for 10 weeks.
"Lifted" also reached the Austria Singles Chart and peaked at #36. The single also reached #85 in the Dutch Singles Chart.
"Lifted" had also done well throughout Europe, where it reached to #15 in the Eurochart Top 100....
