​Up Down

This song is by The Ambassador, features Charmaine and appears on the album Stop The Funeral (2011).

If it goes up, then it comes down
You can go up, you can come down
Everything is for a season, seasons go around
Keep lookin' up to Jesus when it goes down
(Up and down)
Whoa uh oh oh
Yeah

(Verse 1 - The Ambassador)
You can be up, on top of the world like a polar cap
Neva stressed out, always chest out, shoulders back
Always keep landin' on your feet, like when you throw a cat
But before you know it, snap, you flat like a yoga mat
You can go from stacked like the Miami Heat then
Overnight it's over like God's plan for Cleveland
From your family eatin' to family needin' papa
You were used to feastin', but then a famine popped up
One day you got a milli a milli, next you try to get a 10
ATM says you silly you silly
You really you really, need to know how to roll with seasons
Ask Job, sometimes you go low without the reasons

(Chorus - Charmaine)
If it goes up, then it comes down
You can go up, you can come down
Everything is for a season, seasons go around
Get ready for your season when it goes down
'Cause it can go up, down, up down, up, down, up
Get ready for the seasons 'cause its goin' down
Keep lookin' up to Jesus when it goes down
(Up and down)

(Verse 2 - The Ambassador)
You can go to a Benz to a Buick, from a Buick to a Benz
From the fringe to the center, from the center to the fringe
It all depends, you wit all the friends, you wit all the ends
You can bruise 'em all, and lose it all, you can fall to sin
If you should fall repent, be conscious is most def
Of reconcilin' power, which is a monster, ask Joseph
He can take a slave, give 'em city and the key
Straight remedy to hatin' men to split up families
Don't get beside yourself, better remind yourself
You never know where you'll find yourself
Maybe up or down, maybe strong or maybe weak
Yo either way the grace to save ya is the same grace to keep ya

(Chorus - Charmaine)

(Verse 3 - The Ambassador)
I'm not makin' this up, this is God's steez
We see it in the pages of the word God-breathed,
We see it through the ages and the word God speaks,
His favorite way to say is through the Lord God Jesus,
God's on top, when ya seein' God lead,
We see God on drop, when ya seein' God bleed,
We see him lifted up, we can see him on his knees,
Sometimes he's in the cut, one time was on the seas,
That's why we pray in or outta season, in or outta season,
In or outta season, in or outta season,
We don't have the power, so our power is the one that
Keeps us from fallin', but when we fallin', seek us to come back

(Chorus - Charmaine)
