I don't want to be your friend.

i don't want to be your friend

a hand upon my clammy skin

trace a finger round my lips

kiss me like you don't want me to leave.

i hold onto the promise of one night

you fall asleep with

twinkles in your eyes.

fall in love with me

the way

you fall into your dreams.

i don't want to be your friend

i want to kiss the crevice of your neck

curl an arm around my waist

touch me in the dark.

i hold onto the promise of two nights

pepper-sprinkled freckles in the light.

(don't forget to) fall in love with me


you fall asleep.

push me up against the wall -

( if you wouldn't mind)

ravage me.

i want you to caress me when i can't sleep

hold me tightly


i'm too high to speak.

i want you to fill my mouth

'til i can't breathe

jump my bones &

say you love me.

underneath the light of the eclipse

put your mouth

between my hips

let me scratch your back

until you bleed.

i don't want to be your friend

i want to be inside your head

(don't forget to) kiss me like you mean it.
