​Dijon – Cannonball lyrics
[Verse 1]
You're magnified in light
I watch you wade inside
I'll memorize the way the lake looks and your hands look in it
I could trace a line
Around your shoulders and spine
I fantasize, I wish you knew what I was thinking

[Chorus]
I wish that you would hold me
Without grace and ungently
I wish you'd wrap me up tight
I wish you'd hold me inside
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Verse 2]
I could watch you dive
For the rest of my life
I see you like a photograph or a hologram
When you cannonball and it
Splashes and the light
Catches, outstretched on the wet
Grass, it's obvious I want you bad

[Chorus]
I wish that you would hold me
Without grace and ungently
I wish you'd wrap me up tight
I wish you'd hold me inside
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Bridge]
I had doubts when you coaxed me out
I can't swim so I float on my back
I watch you butterfly from the corner of my eye
I did not know you were so
Good, I wish you could teach me
I hold my breath to touch the bottom of
The lake, I swear I'd stay, I'd stay
I'd stay forever if you asked me to

[Chorus]
But I wish that you could hold me
Without grace and ungently
I wish you'd wrap me up, tight
I wish you'd hold me inside
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Close to you, close to you, close to you
