Thoughts on Songs with Kimbra
Two voices in this song, two aspects of the same situation. A relationship falling apart, she's ready to move forward, he's still there, wondering whether there is still something keeping them together or it's all gone up in smoke. My guess is that wandering limbs (and eager hands) probably refers to the third person in this, her lover probably.
What this song is about is not a secret, meaning is obvious and simple. Kimbra describes the way till the first move to be with somebody, the anticipation and the expectations in a few words. Simplicity is beautiful and beauty is in the simple things they say. True!
