Swim

Written By: Wendy Whittaker Christensen

Swim

So here I sit with you in this boat we’re rocking so hard
I hardly know us anymore
Remember oceans back, we weren’t always on guard
But I can’t reach you like before

Those were the days we still laughed and played
I’ve been wondering how do you and I begin again

I say we swim, let’s abandon this ship
Let’s dive in, give our ego’s the slip
Too much You said, You don’t, You won’t
There's no love floatin’ this boat
We’re gonna sink if we don’t swim

If I could touch your skin I’d know you’re not the enemy
Those sunny days’d come flooding back
Let’s just leave this talk and splash until there’s harmony
Maybe we’ll find our way back

Till every ounce of you is dripping with me
Till we’ve forgotten this whole world but you and me
It’s only you and me

Granpa's Whiskey

Written By: Wendy Whittaker Christensen

Grandpa’s Whiskey

I guess I was born knowing that mistakes are never OK
The surest way to solve a problem is to find out just who's to blame
Most of all make sure the family looks good
Nothing wrong, nothing anyone could see
No one ever spoke them, they were written inside of me

Granpa your whiskey’s still swimming in my veins
I never had a drop and my daddy never drank
But Granpa your old whiskey’s still calling all the shots
Dishing out the hell of those old forget-me-nots
Good news, Granpa, we all survived
Now I wanna live

I know you know I love you and there’s nothing to forgive
I’m just taking care of business, giving back what I’m not handing to my kids
I must get living or get dying, I’ve been scaring me to death all of my years
Funny how what’s silent is the only thing you ever hear

Starving

Written By: Wendy Whittaker Christensen

Well I did Mickey D's at midnight
Ben & Jerry brought me home
The only men who treat me just right
Still work up famished & all alone

Well I'm starving, & I'm eatin everything
Yeah I'm starving, you ain't even rationing
I'm just starving, cause here's the thing
I'm only hungry for you

Can't remember what you taste like
So I made do with Carl's meal deal
Gettin weaker from your love strike
I got all these kisses no one tries to steal

Well I just don't know if I'll survive
Don't get enough to stay alive
This hunger just won't satisfy
I'm gonna shrivel up and die
