Your face is in front of the eyes in my mind
My VHS brain is set on rewind
I play and I pause the moment I see
I’m tryin to be sly, but you’re lookin’ at me
That gaze you return is almost too much
I turn away blushed, and covet your touch
Pheromones and chemistry makin’ me flushed
I’m warm with an uncontrolled amorous rush
How do I tell you this longing I feel?
I don’t trust my heart, but this lust is real
How do I tell you all that I’m hoping
When all that I want is no strings attached groping?
Please don’t be judgy ’cause I’m not a whore
I just can’t help wanting a little bit more
It’s time that’s not friendly, and not on my side
You just look so damn good like a carnival ride
You’re all of that and a bag of chips on the side
My libidinous nature awaits to abide
