Well , we both know it’s bedtime,
But, instead, we think that it’s time
To catch up on what we missed—
Think about those lips that we haven’t kissed
In such a long time.
It’s been such a long time.
I’ve got stuff to do tomorrow;
You’ve got stuff as well,
But all of those things are tomorrow.
We’ll worry about them tomorrow
Your voice is so lovely.
I hope my voice is lovely to you, too.
I love you.
You ask me silly things, [to] kiss my phone,
[and] hug my pillow,
[to] think of you;
It’s a ritual.
I’m trying to lock you in my head.
You’re trying to lock me in your head
So that we can find
each other, and give each other
