"Angel Food" as written by and Ani Difranco....
if the mattress was a table top
and the bed sheet was a page
we'd be written out
like a couple of question marks
my convex to your concave
and we'd be lying here
at the end of a sentence
and asks, are you ready now?
are you gonna glow in the dark?
are you gonna show me how?

do you like to watch when water misbehaves?
do you like waves?
as the wind shifts
and shifts again
the sail smiles
and gently slaps around the mast
ballast
ballast
ballast

when you come to me
come to me with cake
in your pocket
come to me nicely
with that soft kinda cake
that's mostly icing
come to me ready and rude
bring me angel food
angel food

    General CommentThis reminds me of when both partners of a relationship are willing to love eachother, but both are afraid of completely exposing their soul to eachother..... it seems like they are oth waiting for the other to break the ice

    General CommentI agree. But I could also see this as a couple who are so in love and passionate, that she can't quite see herself without him/her.

    "my convex
    to your concave"


    I think, it depends on where you in your life when you listen to it.

    General Commentive been trying to figure out this song because i love it so much.

    "you come to me with cake in your pocket, the soft kind thats mostly icing"

    someone comes to her with an offer, situation, or proposal in general, but its sugared up to the point of "not enough cake" you know. and shes kind of hanging in the air because she knows its a shifty deal, but then again she has a sweet tooth.

    General CommentI think it's about being friends with benefits. They come when you call them, you both get your rocks off and then go your separate ways. There's no attachment, it's superficial and not emotionally filling. Like a cake with too much icing. It tastes good when you eat it but you're just eating icing, there's nothing to it. I see the little cake there is as maybe a potential for a real relationship is there.
