"The Length of My Arms" as written by and Carrie Newcomer....
I've always had long arms and my sleeves never fit.
And my mother would worry about my dangling wrists and
I never grew to tall, but it did me no harm
To never grow into the length of my arms

What I have embraced, what I've carried for years
Like a bucket of self doubt, like a basket of fears
But we finally cherish what we got from the start
Like the length of our own arms and the shape of our hearts

I dreamt I was flying, and I dreamt of my mother
She was walking in paradise with one saint or another
And I looked out at my own arms they felt so strong
And really quite lovely though ridiculously long
