I like attention
the instant gratification taken from your look, a gaze I can fuck with
you look up and down at me, you take in my body and my eyes
I'm not sure you take in my thoughts, but at that point I didn't care
You liked the drunken mumbles, you crave the sense of a touch I give you
A pale and skinny frame that can give you what you want, and
I like the attention
When I came over, you were all that there was for a short amount of time
you were nothing more than a one night stand that wasn't supposed to go anywhere
damn, man. I was so wrong.
But I'm falling in love with you.
Creep by me the day after a party, you won't meet my gaze
I'm a naive adolescent with a mission to gain your attention
High school party and I felt so cool, so cool dude
Get fly, hitch a ride on illegal drinks and the high of a summer night
Lockers slam, you keep your head up and your gaze down
you won't look at me, but I remember how your kisses felt so sweet
it was so wrong, but you told me an age didn't matter,
I can't tell and you won't tell,
"Don't stand so close to me" plays on the radio, I think about how it sounds so familiar;
did The Who get it right?
what were you even doing there that night?
since when did you run with a younger pack, as an alpha?
you sit at the front of class now, and I take my seat
but I know you can see me, even when your faced toward the board
"Turn to page four, class"
I really like the attention.
