KEEP YOU HEAD TO THE SKY Lyrics - Earth Wind And Fire

Review The Song (10)



Words and Music by Maurice White


Master told me one day
I'd find peace in every way
But in search for the clue
Wrong things I was bound to do


Keep my head to the sky
For the clouds to tell me why
As I grew, and with strength
Master kept me as I repent
And he said


Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky


He gave me the will to be free
Purpose to live His reality
Hey, and I found myself never alone
Chances came to make me strong

To step right up and be a man
'Cause you need faith to understand
So we're saying for you to hear
Keep your head in faith's atmosphere


Keep your head to the sky
So the clouds
Keep your head to the sky
So they can tell you why, Lord
Keep your head to the sky
Surely, the clouds are gonna tell you why


Gave me the will to be free
Purpose to live His reality
Ooo, And I found myself never alone
'Cause chances came, they came to make me strong


Hey, to step right up and be a man
Ooo, you need faith to understand
So we're just saying for you to hear
Keep your head in faith's atmosphere


Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky
Don't walk around with your head hung down
Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky
Surely, surely the coulds are gonna tell you why


Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky
Keep your head to the sky

One of the Greatest Songs of All Time | Reviewer: Heather | 6/20/13

I love music, many genres, but this takes me right back to 1973 when it was all about peace and love, and keeping my head to the sky as I learned life's lessons. I am very thankful for the artistic genius of Maurice White, and all of the other members of Earth, Wind and Fire.

Still Amazing! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/20/12

Hard to believe this song is almost 40 years old. I used to think EWF were of my mother's generation. Now that I'm older, I remember listening to all of the songs as a kid and now understanding their deep meaning. This song is one that I'd recommend for EVERY young man. It's a song of hope, faith, determination and speaks of this generation. It reminds them there is a higher power at work in their lives and gives them encouragement when it seems to be sorely lacking in the present day.
I feel so strongly about this son that I'm having my son just entering adulthood listen to it. It's a wonderful reminder to have hope, not to give up and to always look up to where our help comes from.

In 1973 I was still in high school. I was blown away when I first heard it, and still go crazy hearing it today. It sends a very powerful spiritual message of hope and the key to reality. The 70's had very down to earth music. Today's music cannot even get even close to their originality.

Song that changed the was i thought about music | Reviewer: Milton | 11/16/10

It was 1973 and a major shift was beginning in the landscape of music. I was already a huge Earth, Wind and Fire fan & listed to them as much as I did any of the great Motown, Stax Records acts of the time.

Then thne album "Head To The Sky" was released that year and I heard this track, WOW! This song is such a Spiritual High it's almost unreal. Maurice White wrote such powerful and esoteric lyrics that to those not used to actually listen to a complete song, not just the music, it was hard to pick up the message in the first go around.

But this song showcased all the genius that is Mr. White and gave Phillip Bailey the perfect vehicle to showcase his etheral vocal talents. This song changed the way I thought about music forever and disspelled the myth that only the only deep and powerful songwriters were to be found in the rock or folk genre's.

Thank you Mighty Elements for truly blessing us with this Masterpiece which sounds a wonderful today as it did now 37 years ago when it was first released.

EWF | Reviewer: Alexander | 11/17/07

I came to this site in search of lyrics of EWF as i think its time already to know to understand everything in their songs. Im not a religious person but this band and its highly emotional songs full of spiritual warmth make me think that it looks like a Gods Miracle.

Keep Your Head To The Sky this song is my theme song for life. In this world today that is the only thing to do is to keep your head to the sky. This song is the best song that I have heard in a long time. Thank you Earth Wind and Fire.

Keepin' my head to the sky | Reviewer: Lisa from Oakland | 10/28/07

After hearing this song, you can't help but gather your resolve to continue through your struggles until you see a brighter day.

insprirational, uplifting, and grounded | Reviewer: Gil Rutherford | 8/19/07

I have always loved Earth,Wind, and Fire from the very first time I heard their first songs. I grew very attached to the song "Keep Your Head to the Sky". I did not fully understand the lyrics but the words which I did understand stayed in my heart and in my head. Now, as an adult, I find myself wanting to share some of the lyrics with my sons. I do hope that one day they will keep the words of "KEEP YOUR HEAD TO THE SKY" within their hearts and mind. Furthermore, I hope they will use the lyrics as a tool to guide them to daily trust and believe in God. Likewise, I pray that they will use the same lyric to keep them encouraged in life during the good times and the bad times. I can truly say that the lyrics of "KEEP YOUR HEAD TO THE SKY" kept me grounded and encouraged when challenges were mountains. These words inspired me to keep my faith, trust and belief in God as he directed my path as I crossed over each mountain.
