So Have I For You Lyrics

So Have I For You - Nikka Costa

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

 

So have I

Well mama you can choose the rain

 

But I choose the sun

 

Well mama you can choose the rain

But I choose the sun

 

That's all I need to free myself

 

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

 

And I have covered every range of emotion

 

Just like the sea has spent eternity

At the mercy of the moon

 

So have I for you

 

So have I

Well mama you can choose the rain

But I choose the sun

 

Well mama you can choose the rain

But I choose the sun

 

That's all I need to free myself

 

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

That's all I need to free myself

 

That's all I need to free myself

 

That's all I need to free myself

 

 

That's all I need to free myself
