Lyrics

(Source: I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss)

You're so gentle and so soft.
I like you, 'cause it looks to me
Like you are caught
Between two or three worlds; I am, too.
Is it ok to say I see some of myself in you?
And even though I know I'm not for you,
Is it ok to say I really do adore you?
And I would give anything
To be the one who kisses you.
Smelled your jacket
When you left it on its lonely post,
Wrapped it 'round me
Like it was the holiest of ghosts.
Oh, your smell, it came through.
Mmm, made me wish
I had my face buried in you.
You're soft, you’re soft,
you're old but you’re younger.
Oh, how I wish
I had my head upon your shoulder.
Oh, how I wish that I could sell myself to you
And do the things that only lovers do.
And even though I know I'm not for you,
Is it ok to say I really do adore you,
And I would give anything
To be the one who kisses you
Goodnight,
Goodnight?
Oh, close your eyes.
Meet me at that crazy apple tree in heaven;
We’ll go dancing all night.
