lyrics

You fall in and out of all the thoughts that I have had today
Mostly, you're just in the way
You are simply watching some old fashioned black and white TV
He's all gold to me

I come back stronger
I come back stronger
That is all you'll see
The strong side of me

It's no wonder that your eyes are green, when you're so clearly blue
What kind of hell have you been through?
I could be sentimental, or righteous, but I don't have to be
Cause you're just cold to me

I come back stronger
I come back stronger
That is all you'll see
I come back stronger
I come back stronger
That is all you'll see
The strong side of me

Why me?
Why today
Any other soul
Any other day
Oh, another day

You fall in and out of all the thoughts that I have had today
Mostly, you're just in the way
You are simply watching some old fashioned black and white TV
He's all gold to me

We come back stronger
We come back stronger
That is all you'll see
It's all the same to me
We stand here stronger
We face you stronger
That is all you'll see
The strong side of us
The strong side of me

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
