- LyricsComing out of my wishing well
Only echoes lonely hear my prayers
Im coming around to bending
My resistance been far too persistent
Ive come too far to force it
- LyricsMy face to the sky
Dreaming about just how high
I could go and if I'll know
When I finally get there
Taking of my glasses
- LyricsMr. Nothing's got a lot
He's got a lot to say
He's good at being what he's not
Gives nothing away
Another day goes on by
- LyricsI 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
