about

Kosi New York, New York

She's more than just a drama queen. She's got piercing eyes and a voice that's larger than her body. But, small as she is, she won't fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can follow. First she's jazz, then she's blues, then she's rock, but always powerful. You definitely want to hear this girl sing... if you can handle it. ... more

Track Name: Intro (Hallelujah)
They say I took the name in vain
When I don't even know the name
but if I did, well baby, what's it to ya?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard:
the holy or the broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Track Name: Guilty
I did it for the love
I did it for the money
I did it for the fruit
I did it for the honey
I did it for you
and you can be a witness
cause that means I'm guilty I'm guilty I'm guilty
of all of this

I did it for the love
I did it for the power
I did it for the sweet
I did it for the sour
I did it for you
and you can be a witness
cause that means I'm guilty I'm guilty I'm guilty
of all of this

I did it for the love
I did it for the glory
I did it for the fun
I did it for the story
I did it for God
I did it for a Man
I did it for the Devil
I did it cause I can
I did it for you
and you can be a witness
cause that means I'm guilty I'm guilty I'm guilty
of all of this
Track Name: Servant's Prayer
Amen, amen
Master hear your servant's prayer once again
I'll be honest, I'll be fair
yes I'll own you anywhere
this is your servant's prayer
Amen
Track Name: Lament in A minor
Pacing around with all the demons in my mind
Shivering scared of all the things that I may find
Can I avoid the things inside of me
Close my eyes, still I see
things that I don't want to be
troubled and confined

Walking the floor I think of all the things I've done
Wonder how I could be of use to anyone
haven't been following my own advice
same mistakes more than twice
sorry maybe won't suffice
and there's nowhere to run

Cause it's been 1-2-3-far too many
times that I've been down this road I'm walking on
And it's been 5-6-7-ain't that something
can I be redeemed or am I too far gone?

If there is mercy, can that mercy be for me?
If there is freedom then by God may I be free?
If there's a way that I can make it right
slay the beast and end the fight
I may walk into the light
no more pain for me

Cause it's been 1-2-3-4-5-since I've been here
I don't want to be here anymore
And it's been 7-8-9-then what happens
if I never find what I've been searching for?

If there is mercy, can that mercy be for me?
If there is freedom then by God may I be free?
If there's a way that I can make it right
slay the beast and end the fight
I may walk into the light
no more pain for me
no more pain for me
no more pain for me
Track Name: Your Angel
They call me evil
They call me evil

I try to do right, but they just tell me I'm wrong
I want to be loved, they say I don't belong
They say when I cry it's just a trap
that I'm up to something
They knock me down when I try to be strong
A beautiful woman is too easy to blame
when something goes wrong, just point the finger at Mame
they want to examen all my choices
with a microscope
and then in their judgement leave me nothing but shame

They call me evil
But you call me angel

I know I'm on to something good
each time I make you smile
I see that pretty face and know
I've done something worthwhile
I know I'm on to something good
each time I make you smile
I see that pretty face and know
I've done something worthwhile

I know I'm on to something good
each time I make you smile
I see that pretty face and know
I've done something worthwhile

And I can deal with what they say if I'm an angel to you
I can deal with what they say if I'm an angel to you
I can deal with what they say
I can deal with what they say
I can deal with what they say if I'm an angel to you
I can deal with what they say if I'm an angel to you
I can deal with what they say if I'm an angel to you
I can deal with what they say
I can deal with what they say
I can deal with what they say if I'm an angel to you
Track Name: Walk With me
Walk with me, Lord, walk with me
walk with me, Lord, walk with me
as I travel this weary journey
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me

I'm alone, Lord, walk with me
I'm alone, Lord, walk with me
as I travel this weary journey
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me

All the way, Lord, walk with me
all the way, Lord, walk with me
as I travel this weary journey
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me
Track Name: Father So Wise (Elder Washington)
Father so wise
so true so strong for me
you bring joy to this song
this song of love and loss
death and life

Father so wise
you gave your all for me
and your love keeps me strong
to go on

Hold me close till the song is done
Hold me close till the pain is gone
Father, father, father
Track Name: Hallelujah
I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
but you don't really care for music, do ya?
It goes like this, the fourths, the fifths
the minor falls, the major lifts
the baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Now baby I've been here before
I've seen this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

And maybe there's a god above
but the only thing I've learned from love
is how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
It's not a cry that you hear at night
it's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Track Name: Since I Laid My Burden Down
Glory glory hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down
glory glory hallelujah
Since I laid my burden down

Y'all don't treat me like you used to
Since I laid my burden down
Y'all don't treat me like you used to
Since I laid my burden down

The burden's down, Lord, the burden's down, Lord
Since I laid my burden down
the burden's down, Lord, the burden's down, Lord
Since I laid my burden down

I feel better, so much better
Since I laid my burden down
I feel better, so much better
Since I laid my burden down
Since I laid my burden down
Since I laid my burden down
Track Name: Morning After Blues
My body will heal
and my soul has not been bruised
I'm more than what I feel
more than these morning after blues
the past isn't real
just shadows and memories and booze
but my body will heal
from these morning after blues

My body belongs to me
my body belongs to me
I'm okay
The air in my lungs
the sun on my face
I'm okay
The hair on my head
my feet in my shoes
I'm okay
I know who I am
I know who I am
I know who I am
I know who I am

My mind is at ease
looking out on this brand new day
I'll rest if I please
and I'll soon be on my way
the scent on the breeze
lets me know I'll be okay
My mind is at ease
looking out on this brand new day

My body belongs to me
my body belongs to me
I'm okay
The air in my lungs
the sun on my face
I'm okay
The hair on my head
my feet in my shoes
I'm okay
I know who I am
I know who I am
I know who I am
I know

My body belongs to me
my body belongs to me
I'm okay
The air in my lungs
the sun on my face
I'm okay
The hair on my head
my feet in my shoes
I'm okay
I know who I am
I know who I am
I know who I am
I know who I am
