Tangle me up
Legs and fingers
Calm me down
Arms and hair
Make me pretty
Eyes and laughter
Keep me hungry
Mouth and hands
I tried to make your heart a picture
But it just turned out scrawled and red
I tried to tell you how I felt
And mumbled all the words
I try to touch you in my daydreams
But I can never feel your skin
I try to keep you off my mind
But feel your pulse beneath my hand
