Strange how a boy
with metal heavy hands
straight bourbon on his lips
seeps into me
together in his home
we sat on the windowsill
i played for him my songs
and he melted me

i know he’s yours
but i just need to tell you one thing
we spent hours and hours together
but he only touched me with his guitar strings,

we never touched, no
we never touched, no
we never touched, no

i guess when he saw your face
his heart reached its breaking point
he couldn’t do it anymore
and so he shut me out
its now i realize
i cant pinpoint how i feel
cant distinguish dream from real
and it weighs me down
