It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Awkwardness

I enjoy our awkwardness;
We giggle and glance askance.
Your eyes, your hands, your shoulders;
I whisper I’d like to dance.

Your blue stare mesmerises me.
I seem stronger, feeling this way.
Your lips, your neck, your perfect legs,
I’m thrilled with each slow body sway.

I know I’m loud, and fast at times,
But then your breathing slows my pace.
I do not need to see my reflection,
It is only you I want to face.

Where before my eyes wore sunglasses,
Now I have no fear of the sunshine.
Did you notice that I stared at you
The first time your ocean gaze met mine?

Even now I am oddly comforted
By the awkward ways people meet.
Although I’m uneasy in dance, you
Cared not about my graceless feet.

So it reached the conclusion I like
Heavy breathing, staring at the mess
Oh, I wonder what might happen next?
As I enjoy our mutual awkwardness.

Artist's Description

Bic Runga – Sway

Don’t stray, don’t ever go away
I should be much too smart for this
You know it gets the better of me
Sometimes, when you and I collide
I fall into an ocean of you, pull me out in time
Don’t let me drown, let me down
I say it’s all because of you
And here I go, losing my control
I’m practicing your name
So I can say it to your face
It doesn’t seem right, to look you in the eye
Let all the things you mean to me
Come tumbling out my mouth
Indeed it’s time to tell you why
I say it’s infinitely true

[CHORUS:]
Say you’ll stay, don’t come and go
Like you do
Sway my way, yeah I need to know
All about you

And there’s no cure, and no way to be sure
Why everything’s turned inside out
Instilling so much doubt
It makes me so tired – I feel so uninspired
My head is battling with my heart
My logic has been torn apart
And now it all turns sour
Come sweeten every afternoon

[CHORUS TWICE]

It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you

Now it all turns sour,
Come sweeten every afternoon
It’s time to tell you why, I say it’s infinitely true

[CHORUS TWICE]

It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you
