Review The Song (0)



As we approach fair weather
As we entertain our maiden endeavor

Testify
Raise your hands up to the sky
Clouds are comin' closer, but a-don't you cry

Mama, you got me history books
"Yeah, and I thought me I'd take me a look"
But doesn't matter what you do or say
Because it ain't my history anyway

Feast or famine, you're cryin' at the disco
You have lost your way
The peace they were plannin' died in San Francisco

Clouds are comin' closer, but a-don't you cry
Because you ain't got time
Just keep on strivin', testifyin'
