The day I met you was like a thousand years
It felt as though I had known you forever
Please don't look at me like that

I talk to you like we have been friends forever
You are so much like me
Please don't touch me like that

What are you doing here? You're too early
I haven't wiped the sleep from my eyes from yesterday
Please don't hug me like that

I do not want you to be my yesterday
I want you to be my today, my tomorrow
So please don't kiss me like that
