Salaam Remi – Yonder Lyrics

Yonder Lyrics – Salaam Remi

Yeah

Growing up in New York, I never went to church before
But down south with Grandmoms, I did for sure
Walking through the door, church friends wouldn’t floor us
Spirit took over the little boy
I was holy ghosting
Speaking tongues, holy rolling
Nah, not me that was the old ones
Care a lot of visits in the Summer to get away from the killings and the concrete jungle, yeah
[?]’s bus, park the 30 deport
And every time we left, they broke in our apartment
Couldn’t understand, Mom’s leaving us in the twig
City kids, as a man now I see what it did
Simplify life, pure peace and calm spirits
Duality to help the ancestors stay strong
We got some angels getting us through the storm
Another funeral, another man gone, man
Ghetto king, ghetto king
When you transition, I wish you would wear wings
Serious, the black experience is quite deadly
Fight daily, life expectancies might vary
It evokes to Huey and me, you woke
Now you be scary I spoke
And schools already, nothing prepare me
To seperate the truth from conspiracy (Oh)
Love ones fear for my life, but ain’t no fearing me

Going up for yonder (Going up for yonder)
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder
To be with my love (The most high)
I’m going up for yonder (Going up for yonder)
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder
To be with my love

Can’t even hide from the devil in a place of worship
Can’t find peace where they going to find God
Look at Charleston, look at the arson
They tried to shock him back to life but they lost him
He was a wild kid, they caught him on the humble
Coming out of chick crib, had nowhere to run to
Something bad happened, we pulling together
While we still here we forgot all we got is each other
This one here’s for my man Hasan’s Moms
This one’s for Salam’s Moms
For Jennifer and Nas’ Moms
She told me a lot of times one day it’s just gon’ be you and God
I pray that Ferlando [?] gets through them all
We demand justice for all (Oh!)
Uh, Miss Hudson said it all

Going up for yonder (Going up for yonder)
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder
To be with my love
I’m going up, yonder (Yeah, yeah, going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder
To be with my love (All praise is due)

If you wanna know (Yeah-yeah)
Where I’m going
Where I’m going soon, ah (Check for the church)
If anybody asks you (Uh-huh, yeah)
Where I’m going
Tell them I’m going soon, oh

Going up for yonder (Going up for yonder)
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder, Yeah)
I’m going up, yonder (It’s that feeling)
To be with my love
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder (Going up yonder)
I’m going up, yonder
To be with my love
