Let’s keep our fingers knotted, baby.
Like the briar wrapped under the moon
Let’s give in to the urge and swoon
And sway to our own private tune.
Let’s put ourselves together, baby.
We knew how to once before
When our future held much in store
And affection lived at our core.
Let’s kiss like we used to, baby.
It’s so easy to remember how
Just let that lust in for now
Your pleasure still my vow.
Let’s breathe and grip and sweat, baby.
Let’s take down these walls we’ve built
Let’s crack Heaven like the sinners we are
Let’s die a little in our filth.
Let’s not, you’ll say,
your eyes turned away.
Let’s carry on as we do,
We are different now
Lit differently somehow,
no longer me and you.
Let’s stay focused on tomorrow
where we don’t exist
Because your lips do not belong
On my thighs, my waist, my wrist.
Let’s be friends then, baby.
Because now we’re almost done
In the sherbert spill of sun
Our hearts have stopped their run.
