FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: EARTH WIND & FIRE

Everyone who knows me well, knows that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Earth Wind & Fire. They have a song for all of life's moments....love, joy, sadness, you name it, no one can motivate you back to yourself like Earth Wind & Fire....except maybe Stevie Wonder!

This is one of my favorites: On Your Face. The lyrics are so strong and so timely it doesn't even matter when this first came out. It's just what's needed today!




On Your Face
--Earth, Wind and Fire

Oh, Ooo, Oh, Ooo, Oh, Ooo, Oh

M: Ain’t it funny that the way you feel shows on your face
And no matter how you try to hide, it states your case
Now a frown will bring your spirits down to the ground
And never let you see the good things all around
Every time we seem to let our feelings flow
Our luck run out, and the wind won’t blow

P: But, that can’t make me sad
Just can’t make me, whoa, oh
Cause I’ve been there before
Don’t wanna go no more
The world can’t take me
Won’t let it drive me mad
Sadness bears no remedy for the problems in your life
While you run your race, keep a smilin’ face
Help you set your pace

Oh, Ooo, Oh, Ooo, Oh, Ooo, Oh

M: Wish upon a sunny day, it’ll turn to rain
Use the sunshine in your heart to ease the pain
We wonder how your attitude is going down
Is it wakin’ and shakin’ and safe and sound
Every time we seem to let our feelings flow
Our luck runs out and the wind won’t blow

P: But, that can’t make me sad
That can’t make me, whoa, oh
Cause I’ve been there before
Don’t wanna go no more
The world can’t take me
Won’t let it drive me mad
Sadness bears no remedy for the problems in your life
While you run your race, keep a smilin’ face
Life is on your case

M: Yes it is, yeah


P: This world can’t shake me, this world can’t shake me
Bad times can’t make me sad, whoa, oh
Cause I’ve been there before
Don’t wanna go no more
The world can’t take me
Won’t let it drive me mad

Oh, Ooo, Oh, Ooo, Oh, Ooo, Oh

P: You can’t shake me, the way I feel today
Come tomorrow I’ll feel the same ol’ way

M: Ain’t it funny that the way you feel shows on your face?

P: Wake me! My heart is feelin’ glad
I’ll take you with me when you’re feelin’ bad

M: Use the sunshine in your heart

P: You can’t shake me what I feel today
Come tomorrow I’ll feel the same ol’ way

M: I start to wonder what’s going down
Feelin’ it, Feelin’ it

P: My heart is feelin’ glad
I’ll take you with me when you’re feelin’ bad

M: I start to wonder what’s going down
In your life, is it safe and sound?
I start to wonder if your life’s all right
Are you dealing with it everyday or does it cause you strife?
