lyrics

Naked eyes, I noticed as we stumbled to your car
Or SUV… whatever vehicle it be
Our taco drive succeeded but with many twists and turns
Cuz from my seat you were making eyes at me

And you know exactly what you want
You were my ride, way out of mind

I tend to rest my head diagonally
I tend to rest my head diagonally
With my ears catching corners of the pillows

(Oh) I ain’t ever done these things before
(Oh) But they seem familiar
(Oh) Copy-paste a thought I had myself
(Oh) Treatin’ me like a flower

And you know exactly what you want
You were my guy, exceptionally wise

You made me feel that I was beautiful
You made me feel as if I was beautiful
With our ears catching corners of the pillows

Once again, I have to hark on how grateful I am
Once again, my red teapot is shattered
You were golden, respected all my tiny feelings then
Once again

And you know exactly what you want from me

That night my head rested diagonally
You make me feel that it’s beautiful
When my ears catch the corners of my pillows

And you know exactly what you want from me
