Nikka Costa - So Have I for You Lyrics

Nikka Costa Everybody Got Their Something cover art

I am a woman with a mission
And a past to outdo
I don't need a gun
I've got a microphone
And a melody or two
Just like the earth has spent
A thousand years
Making up for what we do
So have I for you

Your seeds of misery have sprouted
And they try to block my way
The worst gets the better of you
And you try to disarm me with an embrace
Just like the heart that's spent a lifetime
Forgiving what is cruel
So have I for you

Well mama you can choose the rain
But I choose the sun
That's all I need to free myself

I am a woman with a mission
And a past to outdo
I don't need a gun
I've got a microphone
And a melody or two
Just like the earth has spent
A thousand years making up
For what we do
So have I for you

I have justified every wave in our ocean
I have covered every range of emotion
And just like the sea has spent eternity
At the mercy of the moon
So have I for you

Well mama you can choose the rain
But I choose the sun
That's all I need to free myself

This bird's gonna fly so high
Watch my sky come undone
Mama you can choose the rain
But I choose the sun
