Asking too much, Ani Difranco

"Asking Too Much"

I want somebody who sees the pointlessness
and still keeps their purpose in mind
I want somebody who has a tortured soul
some of the time
I want somebody who will either put out for me
or put me out of misery
or maybe just put it all to words
and make me say, you know
I never heard it put that way
make me say, what did you just say?
I want somebody who can hold my interest
hold it and never let it fall
someone who can flatten me with a kiss
that hits like a fist
or a sentence, that stops me like a brick wall
because if you hear me talking
listen to what I'm not saying
if you hear me playing guitar
listen to what I'm not playing
and don't ask me to put words
to all the spaces between notes
in fact if you have to ask, forget it
do and you'll regret it
I'm tired of being the interesting one
I'm tired of heving fun for two
just lay yourself on the line
and I might lay myself down by you
but don't sit behind your eyes
and wait for me to surprise you
I want somebody who can make me
scream until it's funny
give me a run for my money
I want someone who can
twist me up in knots
tell me, for the woman who has everything
what have you got?
I want someone who's not afraid of me
or anyone else
in other words I want someone
who's not afraid of themself

do you think I'm asking too much?

Is that a song or a poem? Whatever, the words are brilliant.

It's a song... it's actually a brilliant song, the music is amazing. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it on youtube...

I hadn't heard of this woman before. I must look out for something of hers - perhaps I can find something on Limewire.

Absolutely search for her songs, Ani is amazing. I posted another song of hers earlier:

Not a pretty girl

Here's another great one:

Hypnotized

If you want to see a cool interview with her on The Hour, here it is:

Ani on the hour

I found some songs of hers on her MySpace. I love her voice!
