Melissa Ferrick — I Am Not lyrics

I am not smooth
I am not soft
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
I want to be
Better than I am
Oh yes I want to need
Nothing but your hands
'Cause mine are so weak
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 when you swim
This time I know
Yeah this time I know
That I am not wrong
So dry and cracked
My heart is set back
Yeah just like the moon
When it's a silver resting on it's back
I will not say
Just exactly how I feel
Because all of the answers
Have yet to be revealed
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 I know
Yeah this time I know
That I am not wrong
'Cause patience is stronger
Than any kiss
And oh how I wonder
If we're ever going to make it
Are we ever going to make it
