I 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
Worst gets the better of you and you try to disarm me with an embrace
Just like the heart that's spent a lifetime
Forgiving what is cruel, so have I for you, so have I for you

Mama, you can choose the rain but I choose the sun
Mama, you can choose the rain but I choose the sun
That's all I need to free myself, that's all I need to free myself

I am a woman with a mission and a past to outdo
I don't need a gun, I got a microphone and a melody or two
Just like the earth has spent a thousand years
Making up for what we do and so have I for you

And I have justified every wave in our ocean
And I have covered every range of emotion
Just like the sea has spent eternity
At the mercy of the moon, so have I for you, so have I for

Mama, you can choose the rain but I choose the sun
Mama, you can choose the rain but I choose the sun
That's all I need to free myself, that's all I need to free myself

This bird's gonna fly so high, watch my sky come undone, hey
Mama, you can choose the rain but I choose the sun
That's all I need to free myself, that's all I need to free myself
That's all I need to free myself, that's all I need to free myself
