Acrobat

By Angel Olsen


You are a crazy acrobat

You are the witch, I am your cat

I want to be a bit like you

I hope you don't mind

If I do.


I love the way your body's made

I love the way your voice is sex

To be the whisper upon your ear

I want to be the bed you miss.


I am alive

I am alive

I thought

I thought that I'd died.

Who cares I'm not a moralist

I'm just a lady with some time

I want to be made out of love

I want to be made into light.


I love the way you take a walk

and all the things that you see with your eyes

Oh, to be that distant thought,

some growing meaning in your mind.


I am alive

I am alive

I thought that I'd died

I thought that I'd died
