Resilience tune #11

Higher Ground – Stevie Wonder/ Red Hot Chilli Peppers

It was the Chillies version that was chosen by the shuffle button but seeing as I like both I thought you can choose whichever you prefer here (I did warn you my music collection was a bit eclectic!)

People keep on learnin’ 
Soldiers keep on warrin’ 
World keep on turnin’ 
Cause it won’t be too long 

Powers keep on lyin’ 
While your people keep on dyin’ 
World keep on turnin’ 
Cause it won’t be too long 

I’m so darn glad he let me try it again 
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin 
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then 
Gonna keep on tryin’ 
Till I reach my highest ground 

Teachers keep on teachin’ 
Preachers keep on preachin’ 
World keep on turnin’ 
Cause it won’t be too long 
Oh no 

Lovers keep on lovin’ 
Believers keep on believin’ 
Sleepers just stop sleepin’ 
Cause it won’t be too long 
Oh no 

I’m so glad that he let me try it again 
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin 
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then 
Gonna keep on tryin’ 
Till I reach my highest ground

Till I reach my highest ground 
No one’s gonna bring me down 
Oh no 
Till I reach my highest ground 
Don’t let nobody bring you down (they’ll sho ’nuff try) 
God is gonna show you higher ground 
He’s the only friend you have around 

Or the RHCP alternate ending:

An’ Stevie knows that, uh, no-body’s gonna bring me down.
Till I reach the highest ground.
’cause me ‘n’ Stevie, see, we’re gonna be a sailin’ on the funky sound
Till I reach the highest ground.
Bustin’ out, an I’ll break you out, ’cause I’m sailin’ on.
Till I reach the highest ground
Just, uh, sailin’ on sailin’ on the higher ground
Till I reach the highest ground
