"Like a Feather" as written by and Mark/costa Ronson....
I'm coming out of my wishing well
Where only echoes lonely hear m prayers
I'm coming around to bend cause my resistance been to persistent
I've come to far to force it so I'll watch it slide and land
I could come on strong and willful but
I'd rather watch it fall to the palm of my hand

And when I set it free like a feather it will be
And when I rise to see it done like whatever it will be it will be

I'm taking a breather baby
From sitting on pins waiting for my sky to fall
I'm taking up giving in
So here's the wheel, I'm putting my feet up
Take another look at me baby
Today I'm taking on catastrophe
I'd rather take it easy
Then try to force what's on its way to me

And when I set it free like a feather it will be
And when I rise to see it done like whatever it will be it will be

We're only afraid if we pull back the blinds too far
The lights behind that we free will blind other stars
But the truth doesn't blind it helps to see far
So get ready to be
Who you are

    General CommentUmm. I'm not sure exactly what this song is about. Perhaps it's due to my hunger. lol

    Anyway, this song's got a great beat. I love Nikka's upbeat songs. :)

    General CommentTo me.. this song symbolizes "going with the flow". The artist has struggled far too often, and realized possibilities only happen when you let things be like they are, "like whatever it will be it will be."

    Instead of trying so hard for something to work, if something is meant to be .. it will: "I'd rather take it easy, then try to force what's on it's way to me."

    And yes.. this song has a great beat. I love Nikka Costa. She's so.. not everyone else.
