"Toes" as written by Lee Alexander and Norah Jones....
The current is strong from what I've heard
I'll whisk you down the stream
But I never seem to have the time
So my toes just touch the water
So my toes just touch the water

Daydreamed on the bank again
I was swimming with the fish
And I thought this time that it may be true
But my toes just touched the water [Repeat: x3]

Walked a mile just to find the edge
Some place low enough
to step right in
Now I'm here and I can't begin
to move

Walked a mile just to find the edge
Some place low enough
to step right in
Now I'm here and I can't begin
to move

That spoiled sun up over there
Always has to have its way
And I know that the river's there to shelter me
But my toes just touched the water [Repeat: x3]

    General CommentI think this song is about how we get so close to doing something and yet can never make that final step that brings us to it. We hear others talk about how wonderful it is, we dream about it, we know we want it, but for whatever reason we just can't/won't do it.
