Let’s only talk with our tongues
Because, baby, I don’t care much
For anything else you’ve got to say

I want to feel the vibrations of your body
Not hear the vibrations of your vocal cords
My body has always been a better listener

The problem I have is that men talk a lot
But they only listen to the curve of your back
I harness the words my body speaks

I want to let myself be selfish in the sheets
Instead of washing and pressing them for you
I want us to be tangled in the essence of us

Let’s only listen to our racing pulsing hearts
Because, baby, I’ve ignored mine for awhile
It grew cold like the other side of a pillow
