Track Name: Two Feet Shy
That’s all—you were always on the fall
Two feet shy of someone tall
Ooh lord! What an eyeful when you’d call
on her birdbath hands, if you’d land at all
Birdbath hands, if they’re hands at all

You’ve more room than I
to move your feet to
so why not move into
the room that you keep
on tiptoeing into
whenever I sleep?
Is it somewhere you’ve been to,
or somewhere I’ll send you
when I’ve spent too long
try’na map out the corners
where you hadn’t gone?

You and me
and the room
make three
of a pair with too
many legs to share
and too many ifs
I can’t sit on politely
No, I’m gonna find me
a four-legged chair
I’m gonna find me
a four-legged chair

That’s all—you were always on the fall
Two feet shy of someone tall
Ooh lord! What an eyeful when you’d call
on his birdbath hands, if you’d land at all
Birdbath hands, if they’re hands at all
