3. Lyric 4 [sung text checked 1 time]

I will keep you
in my pocket like the pulse
on my wrist.
One day

I will slit your lips with my fingers
letting escape a song,
and rub your hair to release
its vivid fragrance.

Then I will suck the wind
that blows through your lungs
and taste the air between us.
