"Rain Check" as written by and Ani Difranco....
As dolls go I am broken
And you could just let that get us off the hook
But from under the umbrella of the unspoken
I see you giving me that look

Baby, you're right as rain about the benefits
But you might be wrong about the costs
And it feeds my heart that you came looking for me
But I'm thinkin' I need to stay lost

So I won't say I saw you fibbing
Or jump-jigging across the floor
I won't say you walked me to my car
And draped your arm on my open door

I know my mind is made of matter
But I need to know exactly
What is the matter at it's core?
Because my heart is just a muscle
And simply put, it's sore

So never mind about the benefits
And never mind about the costs
That don't change the basic premises
In which I am surely lost

So I won't say I saw you fibbing
Or jump-jigging across the floor
I won't say you walked me to my car
And draped your arm on my open door

    General CommentI love the mood of this song, and I love how Ani describes the smallest things a person does: "you walked me to my car draped your arm on my open door"...
    someone else wouldn't have the sensitivity to notice that he even did that, let alone write a song about it!
    beautiful...
    does anyone know what "jump-jigging" means?

    General CommentThis song is so exceptionally beautiful.
    my favorite line "because my heart is just a muscle
    and simply put, it's sore"
    I feel like its about reluctance and hesitance towards trusting love
