I'm Ready

[BC Solo]

Bjorn wanted me to take this one off. He said, "It's not that I don't like it, I'm just not sure if it fits the record." And in a way, that's what I do like about "I'm Ready." It comes at the point in the record where you need a different feeling. I often like the underdog songs on any album. And to me, there's something satisfying about knowing it will be someone's favorite song. (BC, SheKnows.com interview Aug. 2005)

 

Lyrics

i'm ready
oh lord i'm ready
i'm ready, ready, ready to roll
ready to leave

i'm ready
oh lord i'm steady now
i'm ready, ready, ready to flee
ready to turn

it's your fascination i could live without
too much information leaves my heart no doubts
oh lord i'm ready now
i'm ready, ready, ready to know
ready to learn

push the world away, from your life
cast away the pearls that bring their swine to us
whatever shatters light, has no right

conversations spill your will
conversations i can't feel
i'm ready
i'm ready

i'm ready
oh lord i'm patient now
whoever i was wanting to be
i already am

tell me alienation hasn't found you out
too few condemnations fill your heart with doubt

oh lord i'm ready now
oh lord i'm ready
oh lord i'm ready now
i'm ready to throw away the world from your life
cast away the pearls that bring their swine to us
whatever shatters light has no right

conversations say you will
conversations i can't feel
i'm ready
i'm ready

conversations spill your will
conversations they can't steal

i'm ready
ready for love
i'm ready
ready for love
i'm ready
ready for love
i'm ready
