I heard a song with a mighty beat,
sung by a woman with a powerful voice,
in a friend of my father's car.
She sang about a crossroads and the devil,
she sang about life.

Then, I heard Fast Car in the same car, I remember vividly.

Many things that have formed me, I experienced at my father's side when he was still walking the earth.
I learned about kindness.
I learned about yearning for knowledge.
I learned how to polish my shoes and clip my nails.

These memories came to bring its clarity in the shower when a song was playing and my mind was running in a maze of reflection.

And now I'm just listening to Tracy again:
