"O My My" as written by and Ani Difranco....
Your body foreshortened below your shoulders
Your face so close, it's out of focus
Way down the hallway comes the sound of your shoes
That is what I, what I think about when I think about you

If we let our love off of its leash
Do you fear, like I fear how fierce it could be?

Your headlights sweeping across my ceiling
The breadth of my smile now, the depth of my feeling
Way down in my dark life, a shaft of your light shines through
And that is what I, what I think about when I think about you

If we let our love off of its leash
Do you fear, like I fear how fierce it would be?

O my my

    General Commentyour face so close its out of focus.......... and when you are so into someone and about to be into them even more its hard to focus your lens because it doesnt relly matter... i dont know what im trying to explain, but when your face is physically close to someones by a small distance dont u just want to see how fierce ur love is instead of just standing there stupidly?

    General CommentI love this song. A lot.

    (It's actually "O My My", though.)

    General CommentI just love that line about her lover's headlights sweeping across her ceiling, her smile, and her feeling. Love does feel that way sometimes. Just something little, like the mere presence of your loved one, can make you feel so happy.
