TUNE Melissa Czarnik - Hand Me the Mic
Hand Me The Mic is a song that was written by Melissa Czarnik abroad in France as well as at home in the United States. The second verse which was written in France contemplates the ways to find ones self, reminding herself that if she stays true she will be happy in life. An optimistic verse. To the contrary, the first verse was written when she returned to the United States and is all about her city, Milwaukee (90 miles from Chicago), and the struggles it faces. The chorus which sings, "I want to let the sun shine high in the sky on my city." Is her way of taking what she has seen abroad, the beauty in other cities, and wanting that for he own city, Milwaukee.
