Fate Day By Day

lyrics

I don't need some crystal ball
For all its mystique, it's just glass
And to see right through is to see nothing at all
And all the while the right moments pass

And I'll take fate, I'll take fate
On a day by day basis
I will not wait, I will not wait for what the world may not create
I'll take fate day by day

The only future we can foresee
Is just what our minds project
So when he crept into the back of my mind
It was fate, who was I to object?

And I'll take fate, I'll take fate
On a day by day basis
I will not wait, I will not wait for what the world may not create
I'll take fate day by day

I focused on the embers that just fade with time
Hoping for a spark from a fire that won't revive
Believing in a fate that left me only one
In lamenting loss of fire, I overlooked the sun

And I'll take fate, I'll take fate
On a day by day basis
I will not wait, I will not wait for what the world may not create
I'll take fate day by day
I'll take fate day by day

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
