Melissa Ferrick


I am not smooth  and I am not soft
and I am not angry   or mean
I'm just a little   shut off
Shut off like the answer  no
 or like the way water never holds
and I want to be   better than I am
Oh yes and I want to need   nothing but your hands
'Cause mine are so weak
Oh but my body it wants to move in 
It wants to move in
And your ankles are so strong
I have see you kick   when you swim
You kick   when you swim
This time I know   this time that I know
That I am not wrong yeah
But you know so dry and cracked my heart is set back
Yeah just like the moon
When it's a sliver resting on its back
and I will not say
Just exactly how I feel
Before the answers have yet to be revealed
Oh when my body it wants to move in
it wants to move in
And your ankles are so strong
I have seen you kick when you swim
You kick it when you swim
this time that I know well this time that I know
That I am not wrong
But you know patience is stronger than any kiss
And do how I wonder
If we're ever gonna make it
Are we ever gonna make it
