lyrics

I found myself outside
Walking in the dark, and staring at the sky
I'll never understand how my life unfolds
But fate just is, fate does not console

Then they pulled me to the side
Put their arms around me, and led me inside
They told me I was not the only one in pain
But they console, they do not explain

Faster than I can spin
The word turns and changes again
Sweeter still, till the end
I still want it all again

And there beside me, in letters ten feet tall
The words of God were scrawled on the wall
But I was not oblivious, I chose to ignore
For words explain, words do not restore

Faster than I can spin
The word turns and changes again
Sweeter still, till the end
I still want it all again

And I could wait until
I regained my balance, and made the world stand still
But I would wait forever for my will to be that strong
And as I waited, the rest of my life would be gone

Faster than I can spin
The word turns and changes again
Sweeter still, till the end
I still want it all again

Faster that I can spin
The word turns and changes again
Sweeter still, till the end
I still want it all again

about

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
