lyrics

he was a boy, just a boy I once knew
when he was nearby I felt his vibe
ultrasonic, pyrogenic, alive
he's the rhythm bass, I syncopate
long before my eardrums vibrate

I am softly slipping, tongue-tripping, soul-stripping
through his silence, through his words, too late,
he asked me inside. did I decline?

I tripped into his window, slipped into his afterglow
was stripped out of his soul. Why?

I was a girl, too young for this,
just a girl afraid of dangerous bliss
memories slide into choices collide,
I subdivide the present from past

He was a boy, no, he was a man I once knew
