Lyrics

A Life Profound

Written By: Mica Lee Williams

There is a reason
For believing in the seasons
To know that spring
Will always come around
It's to begin again
Though there seems no means to this end
Before one lays a body down
But things that die and wither
Soon will find new roots and tether
To gather strength beneath the ground

I think that

Far too many soon forget
The sound of their own laughter
Far too quickly we move swiftly
Towards the ever after
But I will stake my claim
And I will find the rapture
Of a life profound

I cannot manage
To estimate the damage
Of holding deep regret
That seeks to pull us down
I see my life
As a vessel traveling swift and light
I seek my wrongs to right
Where I run aground
And the wind that fills these sails
Speaks metaphors and fairytales
That never fail to set me safely down

I think that

Far too often we forget
Exactly what we're after
And far to soon we skip the book
To read the final chapter
But I will savor
In each moment I can capture
Of a life profound

When fortune wheels spin around
It's good to stay in the middle of it
Cuz, yes, Luck she is a tricky one
But there is joy in the riddle of it
And all that can be lost
In another way can be won
And there in lies the meaning

Far too often we forget
Exactly what we're after
And far to soon we skip the book
To read the final chapter
But I will savor in each moment I can capture
Of a life profound

Don't Mind The Rain

Written By: Mica Lee Williams

It takes a little bit of water
To wash everything clean
Put all things back the way that they're supposed to be
To bring some peace
To these overcrowded streets
and let Mother Nature have some space to breath
I like when it gets crazy wet
And everybody runs in seeking shelter
It doesn't get much better than that
Just me and the taxicabs
Taking full advantage of
the benefits of rainy weather and
That's what it's about for me

I don't mind the rain
Falling on my shoulders
I don't mind the rain
Filling up in my shoes
I don't mind the rain
So let it fall
I don't mind the rain at all

See, I get this certain kind of solitary feeling
When I listen to a rain shower
And I'm staring at the ceiling, now
It could be a Monday but it feels like Sunday
In those early morning hours
Before the early bird starts his calling out
And I do some of my very best thinking
In that quiet and alone time
Just being in my own mind, yes
I do believe I like it best
When I start to reminisce
about love
or some sweet thing I'm reminded of and
That's what it's about for me

I don't mind the rain
Playing on my window
I don't mind the rain waking me up at night
I don't mind the rain
So let it fall
I don't mind the rain at all

Said, rain, rain
Don't you go away
I'd like it very much if you would stay
There’s nothing that I would rather do
Than spend another hour with you
Before you let the sun come through
I hope you'll hang around with me
Cuz' ,I don't mind the rain…

Elegant Dancer

Written By: Mica Lee Williams

I've never been the one who had a quick come back
But I always was truthful
It's not my way to play games, a little old for my age
I try to be youthful
I always wished I'd been an elegant dancer
But I can get down when I want to
I'm not the stylish type, because I don't believe hype
I do it how I like and
No one can tell me
To get an identity
I was born free willed, I am that way still
I always will be
And I'm sorry if I said an inappropriate thing
I'm sure I didn't mean to offend you
And if I don't call it don't mean nothing at all
It just means I have something else to do
But I always keep my promises and if I am late
You know I'll still meet you
I think faith is just great, I believe in fate
So believe, that is all that I need and
No one can tell me
To get an identity
I was born free willed, I am that way still
I always will be
And I don't want to be like anybody else here
If I got fifteen dollars in my pocket, well I don't care
Because I take everything in stride
I know what I want and I know what I like
I chose my lovers like I chose all my friends
I like them to be real fine quality
I'm loyal to a fall, mess with them at all
You'll find you're messing with me
No one can tell me
To get an identity
I was born free willed, I am that way still
I always will be
