06. The Upside

In The Hands Of God
by Newsboys



 

It’s been a long, long fall
With nothing to intervene
When gravity does its thing
We start wondering what it’s for
Stuck in a cold, dark basement
Not even expecting more
If all you can see these days is four walls and a floor...

Come up here
We’re making our way to the upside
We’re gonna stay on the upside
We’ll trade our troubles for a room with a view
Come up here
We’re making our way to the upside
A brand new day on the upside
The future’s brighter than a sky full o’ blue

It’s been a long, long fall
The Adam who would be King
When consequence does its thing
We all want it like before
Nowhere to go, laid low
Like a dumpster diver, like a submarine wreck
Scraping the bottom deck
Won’t you, don’t you pray there’s something more?

What’s gonna hold us down?
Who’s gonna hold us down?
How’s it gonna hold us down?
Nothing’s gonna hold us...

Come up
We’ll make our way to the upside
We’re here to stay on the upside
The future’s shining like a sky full o’ blue
Come up here
We’re making our way to the upside
We’re gonna stay on the upside
We’ll trade our troubles for a room with a view
Come up here
We’re making our way to the upside
A brand new day on the upside
The future’s brighter than a sky full o’blue
Come up here
We’re making our way to the upside
We’re gonna stay on the upside
The future’s brighter than a sky full o’blue

Behind the Song:
'This song encourages people not to stay down in the depths of sorrow and darkness and unforgiveness. Let's not wallow in misery all the time, because things aren't always as bad as we think. The song is about moving forward and looking at the world from a different view. We need to pull the scales off our eyes and look forward to a brighter future.' - Peter Furler (Newsboys)
