lyrics

Face kissing glass
burning gas to passing moonrise
when your headlights
paint Brackett white
and I'm no longer tired
bastard wings fly
It's your birthday
so much for making special
surprise!
a mix to sing to
and a wolf to kiss goodnight
have I died?

Pressed your face to mine
No more "should I?”
Or "can I?"
Just "hi"
Lip over lip
and tongue on teeth
and it's so fun to feel
these bugs buzz in my belly
you can tell me anything
I won't tell

Held out my hand
on the drive to Bath
overcast
Your hand said
“Nice to meet you"
when I meant
“Nice to be with you"
we laughed

Pressed your face to mine
No more "should I?"
Or "can I?"
Just "hi"
Lip over lip
and tongue on teeth
and it's so fun to feel
these bugs buzz in my belly
you can tell me anything
I won't tell

Who could be this blessed
by a god never confessed to?
I shouldn’t ask
just feels good to feel
to see blue eyes peek out from blankets
in morning light

Pressed your face to mine
No more "should I?"
Or "can I?"
Just "hi"
Lip over lip
and tongue on teeth
and it's so fun to feel
these bugs buzz in my belly
you can tell me anything
I won't tell

Let’s wake up
It’s morning.
