Flinch? Wretch. Nothing against the Ottawa girl but this song of hers reminds me too much of a heavy metal ballad, something I personally wish CARP would simply outlaw.
\"Flinch\" What\'s it been over a decade? It still smarts like it was four minutes ago We only influenced each other totally We only bruised each other even more so What are you my blood? You touch me like you are my blood What are you my dad? You affect me like you are my dad How long can a girl be shackled to you How long before my dignity is reclaimed How long can a girl stay haunted by you Soon I\'ll grow up and I won\'t even flinch at your name Soon I\'ll grow up and I won\'t even flinch at your name Where\'ve you been? I heard you moved to my city My brother saw you somewhere downtown I\'d be paralyzed if I ran into you My tongue would seize up if we were to meet again What are you my god? You touch me like you are my god What are you my twin? You affect me like you are my twin How long can a girl be tortured by you? How long before my dignity is reclaimed And how long can a girl be haunted by you Soon I\'ll grow up and I won\'t even flinch at your name Soon I\'ll grow up and I won\'t even flinch at your name So here I am one room away from where I know you\'re standing A well-intentioned man told me you just walked in This man knows not of how this information has affected me But he knows the colour of the car I just drove away in What are you my kin? You touch me like you are my kin What are you my air? You affect me like you are my air
This song, pretty much like ALL of the songs on Alanis' new CD are much more spiritual and less angst-ridden and angry than her previous albums. I really like all of the songs on Under Rug Swept

You do have to admit that this tune is thick with angst, though! Haha It's nice to hear her doing what her previous album SHOULD have been. Cheers. Blarg!
Alanis wins me back again (a bit) with this song after I was about to conclude that I had it with her.

Too wordy, too preachy, too self-righteous, too boring.
This song hits home so hard for me. I think it\'s unbeleivably beautiful and so emotional - wonderful! I should be so lucky to write such touching lyrics.
