Ani DiFranco - Shrinking Violet Lyrics


Mostly I’m afraid
Never again will I know
That I can trust your love
Far as I can throw it
Mostly I’m afraid
Never again will I be sure
That while you are sleepwalking you won’t
Become what you endured

Mostly I’m afraid of ya
Mostly I’m afraid of ya
Mostly I’m afraid of ya

I sleep with one eye open
And I hold my breath til dawn
I’m no shrinking violet
But I got my head screwed on
You stood over me with a knife
And you tried to take my life
And it’s no comfort you don’t remember
It’s no comfort that you’ve moved on

There’s nothing I can say
Beyond this whispered wish
Your anger has a hunger, mister
And I’m its favorite dish
There’s nothing I can say
So I don’t make a sound
I just wipe the counter and I
I keep my head down

There’s nothing I can say to ya
There’s nothing I can say to ya
There’s nothing I can say to ya

I sleep with one eye open
And I hold my breath til dawn
No, I’m no shrinking violet
But I got my head screwed on
You stood over me with a knife
And you tried to take my life
And it’s no comfort you don’t remember
It’s no comfort that we’ve moved on
It’s no comfort that we’ve moved on
It’s no comfort that we’ve moved on
