This longing's such a smolder
This longing makes me pine
This longing's left me shipwrecked
because
you're
not
mine

You talk about the future of the future
something one can't divine
All the while I'm tending to my suture
baby, you're so Cole Porter sublime

If love's just a wet spot
on some part of the sheet
I'm already tugging at my zipper,
thinkin' - when can we meet?

My desire's a motherfucker
and my viscera screams and screams and screams
a daytime persona just short of a sucker
but (theoretically) so pristine, pristine, pristine

So...
come here
come here
come here

Ain't it a dirty word -
your big, bad
"Fear?"
but don't steer clear,
cuz you and your Unconscious
both wanna peer
