Your eyes they look so bright,
a funky flair in my appetite,
but there's no room for you,
my feet are on the ground,
and my head is in the clouds,
but you still can't break through,
whatcha gonna do.

I'm not just gonna stand around,
Waiting for my lips to be read,
falling through the cracks in the ground,
my feelings need to be said.

Flowing like water in a crimson melody,
the orange plastic sun is shining,
and the truth so hard to see,
the rain of your existence if falling down on me,
and the soap suds spread like a disease from my washing machine.

I'm not just gonna stand around,
Waiting for my lips to be read,
falling through the cracks in the ground,
my feelings need to be said.

I'm not just gonna stand around,
waiting for you,
falling through the cracks in the ground,
and I'm hoping that you'll make your next move,
that you'll make your next move...

I'm not just gonna stand around,
Waiting for my lips to be read,
falling through the cracks in the ground,
my feelings need to be said.

    General Commentno one has commented on this song? well i guess i'll be the first. then again maybe you guys havent heard this song. It's really really good! It's off her first CD broken bracelet, this is one of my fave Mich songs. It's cuz its a little harder than all her other songs, which makes it sound awesome.

    General CommentI think it's about the guy of her dreams...but she wants to stick to real things... but her love for her spreads like the soap of a washing machine...and she knows she needs him

    great song... love when she only plays acustic guitar and sings...

    General CommentWhat I imagine is that the girl is in a laundromat, and she saw a boy that might be looking at her, and is busy getting her attention. She thinks he is cute though, but she has no time for him and for that, and she is waiting for the boy to read her thoughts, to stay away, because she's freaking out with that stare :))
