Lyrics

I'd clean up my body
clear up my head
become a vegan, child
even give up bread
just to feast on your words
as they roll off your tongue
i'd give the rest of my senses
and keep only one
just to hear that
sweet sound comin through
I'd do about anything
just to talk to you

if i was a monkey
i'd beat a hollow log with a bone
if i was a cave man
i'd invent the telephone
i'd go to bed at midnight
mind all my p's and q's
get up early in the mornin'
walk a mile in high heeled shoes
i'd build a sailin ship
sail across the ocean blue
i'd learn a whole new language
just to talk to you
just to talk to you

i wanna take you out
buy you lunch
give you everything

if i were nothin
floatin in a sea of nothin
thinkin bout nothin in particular
doin nothin spectacular
feelin nothin much
except for maybe a touch
of restlessness
and loneliness
there'd be nothin stoppin me
nothin i couldn't do
i'd become god and create the universe
just to talk to you
just to talk to you

i wanna take you out
buy you lunch
give you everything

just to talk to you
just to talk to you
just to talk to you
just to talk to you

from Begging Her Graces (1999)
