I drink coffee like some people smoke cigarettes
Cup after cup, chain sipping, seeking the caffeine and the sweet.
I know without it my brain might fall asleep.
I tell my coffee before I purse the mug to my lips, "Wake me with a sip."
I love you like some people love cigarettes...
Kiss after kiss, chain kissing, seeking the possibilty of love and the idea of being swept off my feet.
I know without it,
without your love, my heart might fall asleep
I tell your heart, just before I pucker my lips , "Wake me with a kiss."
It comes out as a whisper.
Silent in the empty space between our hearts
Somehow I understand that you heard it anyway.
Somehow with you, I don't just sleep,
And when I wake...
It's always with a kiss.
