"Wrists" as written by Sara Keirsten Quin and Tegan Rain Quin....
Oh, my wrists are weak
But if I could lift your body
Out of a crash of the waves
Out of bed or onto me
Working too hard gets me acting like a letter
So, before you tell me you're not worth the worry
Hurry

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Make me go without a word
Get so crazy when you shut up
Wake up in a panic
Room is dark; you know this body
Could be this way with almost just any body
So put me next to the window
Put me next to the light

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
(Hurry, hurry)
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry, hurry)
Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
(Hurry, hurry)
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry)

Oh, my ego's weak
So thought if I could lift your body
And wake up out of air
The night's too short
You're onto me
Why am I always acting timid and too careful?
Please, before I tell you I'm not worth the worry
Hurry

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Oh, my wrists are weak
I carry weight like a shadow
So put me next to the window
Put me next to the light
Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
(Hurry, hurry)
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry, hurry)

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
(Hurry, hurry)
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry, hurry)
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry)
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry)

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry)
Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Are you undecided?
(Hurry, hurry)
Hurry, hurry, hurry

    General CommentI put them up so you'll help fix them. There's got to be some foundation to work with. I know they're not perfect. You don't need to be sassy. [:

    General CommentI think this song is about really liking someone and moving fast physically but the other person isn't into you emotionally.

    General Commentheh I think this song might sound a bit sexual at first but if you really listen to it ...it's about a person (sara)that is infatuated with someone and wants to rush into a relationship but the other person isn't trying to be in a relationship.

    Song MeaningIn my opinion, it's a conversation; they're switching who talks.

    One of them gets unsure about relationships, and she wants to give up when she feels like it's nothing special. She feels too attached already and is afraid the relationship isn't worth the bother. She's talking in the second verse. That verse is pretty self-explanatory - she's nervous when they aren't talking because she starts to think that the relationship isn't special; she wants everything to be illuminated and out in the open so she can figure out what she should do.

    The other girl wants the relationship, but she "timid and too careful." She knows they aren't connecting enough, and she's losing sleep over it. She knows the other one is considering giving up, and she wants the relationship to have a chance before they get to the point where they both decide the relationship isn't "worth the worry."She keeps telling the other girl not to "judge a book by the size of its wrists"- she's saying that she doesn't look strong enough to make the relationship work, but she can if the girl will hurry up and decide, so she'll be helping her instead of hurting her.

    I think the relationship's been rushed too; because one is indecisive about relationships, she wants to quickly test it out because she doesn't want to be tied up if the relationship isn't worth it.

    Maybe?

    General CommentI don't mean to be a grammar nazi, but this is driving me crazy and will continue to drive me crazy unless it's fixed xD ocd attaaaack..
    the proper posessive of "it" is "its", not "it's". "it's" is the contraction of "it is", and only that. ( and if you don't believe me, just look it up in the dictionary ;) )
    anyway...back to business hahaha I'm truly sorry
