green eyes leaking milk

I can’t let him see

I need you, darling

I need you so much

I need you to say I’m yours

I want to be the man

Of your dreams

But I am just a green eyed lady

The gravity of the moon cannot change this tide

I want to be your man

Cause I’m so madly

In love with you, baby

With your sweet brown eyes

And honey smile

Glowing all midnight sunshine in my heart

I wanna be your home away from home

I need you

Do you need me too?

I do not think so. Maybe not in this way…

I was once your lemon balm

I wanna be your sweet lover

And husband

And to hear that

You need me as much I as need you

Starlight MilkyWay.
