I'm cradling the softest, warmest part of you in my hands
Feels like a little baby bird
Fallen from the nest
I think that your body is something I understand

I think that I'm happy
I think that I'm blessed
But I've had a lack of inhibition
I've had a loss of perspective

I've had a little bit to drink
And it's making me think
That I can jump ship and swim
That the ocean will hold me

That there's got to be more
Than this boat I'm in
They can call me crazy if I fall
All the chance I need

Is one-in-a-million
And they can call me brilliant
If I succeed
Gravity is nothing to me

I'm moving at the speed of sound
I'm just gonna get my feet wet
Until I drown
I teeter between tired

And really, really tired
I'm wiped out and I'm wired
But I guess that's just as well
'Cause I've built my own empire

Out of car tires and chicken wire
And now I'm queen of my own compost heap
And I'm getting used to the smell
I've had a lack of information

I've had a little revelation
I'm climbing up on the railing
Trying not to look down
I'm going to do my best swan dive

Into shark infested waters
I'm going to pull out my tampon
And start splashing around
'Cause I don't care if they eat me alive

I've got better things to do than survive
I've got the memory of your warm skin in my hands
And I've got a vision of blue sky and warm land
I'm cradling the hardest, heaviest part of me in my hands

The ship is pitching and heaving
Our limbs are bobbing and weaving
I think this is something I understand
I think I need a couple vaccinations

For my far-away vacation
I'm gonna go ahead and go boldly
'Cause a little bird told me
That jumping is easy

And falling is fun
Right up until you hit the sidewalk
Shivering and stunned
They can call me crazy if I fall

All the chance I need
Is one-in-a-million
And they cal call me brilliant
If I succeed

Gravity is nothing to me
I'm moving at the speed of sound
I'm just going to get my feet wet
Until I drown
