sex, clubs and parts of speech

friday night
i go to a club
i meet a girl
i watch as she smiles
i watch very closely

the corners of her mouth
prance ahead of her words
they're showing off for me
the corners of her mouth
look just like the places
the warm hidden places
the ones that i want
the ones that i came here to find

a misinflected syllable on my part
a long loud song on the band's part
and we both go home alone

friday night
i go to a club
i meet a boy
i watch as he smiles
i watch very closely

at the edge of his lips
theres a contrast of color
it's showing off for me
it’s a contrast of color
that reminds me of places
the warm hidden places
the ones that I want
the ones that i came here to find

a mispronunciation on my part
of an absurdly adventurous adverb
and we both go home alone

friday night
i go to a club
i meet a girl
i watch as she smiles
i watch very closely

her eyelashes tease me
her black silk lashes
eye lingerie
from Victoria's Secret
her eyelashes hint at
her best kept secret
they tell me she's never
been kissed by a girl

an unfortunate misunderstanding on my part
and a distinct aversion to girl lips on her part
and we both go home alone

it's friday night
i go to a club
i meet a boy
with baby soft features
his damp grabby digits
tip me off from the get go
that we're not the same species
we're planets apart

a "what's that over there?" on my part
and alcohol-blurred reflexes on his part
and we both go home alone

it's friday night
i go to a club
i see her again


sex, clubs and parts of speech
has a month gone by?
girl boy girl boy
yep
it has
a month has gone by

with my lips in her hair
i whisper the details
i'm channeling details
of just how she looked
how she smelled
how she felt
a full month before
i make nothing up
i didn't forget her
i make nothing up
and it seems she believes me

i look down to find
that i've flicked on her high beams
with words alone
with whispered words
she pulls me against them
and kisses me hard
and takes me home for the night

so i said the right thing
the right way
at the right time
to the right person
for the right reason
she shoots
she scores

sex, clubs and parts of speech
have I cracked the code?
ask me in the morning
