Crawl Through My Window (2015)

Written by Achilles Tenderloin

I covet the comfort of a strong woman,
but they never need me that much.
I do alright by my lonely devices,
but I hunger all night for your touch.

I won’t ask you to marry, or carry my key–
don’t care if you run when I call.
Just crawl through my window, some slow summer night,
and throw blue silhouettes on the wall.

I saw from a distance, you’re some kind of island.
Don’t hang your green lamp on the dock.
Just sing me to sleep from your bright, crescent beach.
I’ll try not to crash on the rocks.

A siren once sang, that while she was alive
I’d never be lonesome again.
Well, it’s not like I’d never been lied to before,
but I’d rather you call me your friend.

I won’t ask you to marry, or carry my key–
don’t care if you run when I call.
Just crawl through my window, some slow summer night,
and throw blue silhouettes on the wall.
