He said “I think you just need fingers
ran through your soul
like you’d be doing to my hair.”
I said, “that’s not fair.
Don’t say something you might not mean
It’s one thing to make me needy between the legs
but even worse to make me needy between the lungs.”
I’d hold your hand
trace my finger along the crook of your elbow
to the curve of your shoulder
the hills and valley of your chest
the slope of your neck
to the tussles of your soft, cinnamon hair.
Its always worse at night baby
Always hate to be apart baby
Wish you would be mine baby
Wish you would take more
than just my time baby.
Well I’m getting on without you, baby
Even though I still miss you, baby
Men call me beautiful
and I call them back.
But no matter how I try
I’m still thinking of you
at the end of the day.
Hoping you’ll give us another shot.
We don’t have to think about tomorrow
Or our past
Just stay here with me
And feel my arms around you
Just take what you need in this moment
He holds me tight
and I wonder if he’ll love me past tonight.
I fill my head with nonsense
Wishing we could be
More than just a you and a me.
I like how freely you express yourself.
I wish I could do the same
to show you how good I feel when I’m with you.
Do you kiss every girl like that?
Would you kiss me like this if you didn’t feel anything?
Kiss me absent mindedly again
and we can both pretend not to notice.
I’ll let you keep the upper hand
if it makes you feel secure enough
to keep me around.
I know you’re scared to be vulnerable
but baby, I’ll hold you gently.
I wish we didn’t connect the way we do
It would be so much easier letting you go.
Caring and sweet, we’re good for each other.
But you know I’m not the one for you
and a piece of my heart breaks off in the distance.
You’re so smooth
I love the way you move.
I want to hear those sounds
you can’t hide.
The ones you don’t even realize you’re making.
The ones that course the blood through my veins.
