I want you alone and your wide open soul
can you tell that I'm so into all that you're knowin
if we were to throw down we'd take out the whole town
let's go get some new boots and meet at the hoedown

We woke without clothes and we showed up like soldiers
with hope in our pockets and guns on our shoulders
I want you to know this because you're the closest
to all of the things I do my very most with

I want you
I want you

I want you in lotus, hibiscus and roses
and all that you showed us we'd never have noticed
I want you in tidepools and glistening handfuls
of all we can handle until we get cancelled

I want you in creases of night
where the least bit of light
amplifies undisguisable heat
where demons appear
and for all of their fear
it was they who arranged we should meet

But if we can make it and call this road taken
we'll get back to basics like waking up naked
I want you in autumn, no top and no bottom
like you were an outlaw and I was a law man

I want you
I want you

I want you inspired by earthquakes and spiders
and don't think I want you to like me for my words
I want you enraptured, my friend and my captor
to be with me now and be anywhere after

I want you
I want you
I want you
I want you
