#45 – tighter than the roots of hardwood trees


I kissed you like, god damn
And a baby’s first taste of vanilla ice cream
I licked you like, I want to make you my fam
You tasted even better than in my dreams

It was the heavens and the earth
And all that was in between calling
It was a man and a woman
replaying history’s first act, again i’m falling

We’ll hold on like roots to the soil
There’s nothing realer than that
And this which could make even blood boil
The gaze from your eyes is a lover’s pact

You looked at me like I was the world in one guy
And I knew I wasn’t much back then
You choked on me as if you were ready to die
I came, rising again and again, shouting Amen
