Stevie WonderPositivity

Some people ask me why always on the bright side When there's so much going on down the other side It's like I live in a bubble with no trouble And problems don't exist I chuckle and tell them that ain't the case at all It goes way back to the time when I was very small Not in mind but size and age my papa use to say You can always look at the negative But you should always live in the positive So I try everyday to live that way Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Some people live in what was and what they could have been As opposed to living in a what is and how much they can And be the first to complain about nothing in life going their way The attitude is "that I can't do nothing 'bout" And very happy with just breathing in and out The ones that when you say "lets go make a difference" They'll say "naw that's OK" So I don't waste time on the trip side 'Cause I do know the real on the flipside And I'm crystal clear everyday that's why I say, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah When I see the morning And the sun is smiling down upon me I joy in the blessing That still the ground is not above me And for the people That I can truly say do love me, I feel Positivity, 'cause that's what life's meant to be Positivity, 'cause this day did not have to be Some ask me why I'm such an optimist When it's more fashionable be a pessimist From what's in seventy-five percent of what we read, hear and view Well I use to have a friend named Minnie Riperton Who use to always say when she was living "Like fine wine I like seeing the glass of life as half full than half empty" I'm saying sometimes life can't be rough But never to the point of me saying I've had enough Long as my heart beats I ain't giving up That's why I say everyday Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah When people ask me as an African American What do I see for tomorrow in the human plan? Is it possible for all the people of the world to co-exist? I say unity is only as big as our vision And if it's narrow, try to expand beyond the horizon But true leaders must guide us through the ills of society That stands in our way So if the road is to harmony, be with the call But if it's about discord, don't take the ride at all 'Cause the world vision I see is the one-we for everybody Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah When I see the morning And the sun is smiling down upon me Just joy in the blessing That still the ground is not above me And for the people That you can truly say do love you, do feel Positivity, 'cause that's what life's meant to be Positivity, and that's the energy the world needs Positivity, 'cause that's what life means to me Positivity, 'cause this day did not have to be Positivity, 'cause that's what life's meant to be Positivity, 'cause that's the energy the world needs Positivity, 'cause that's what life's meant to be Positivity, and this day did not have to be Positivity, 'cause that's what life means to me Positivity, and that's the energy the world needs Positivity, 'cause that's what life's meant to be Positivity, and that's the energy the world needs
