Your mouth said this never,
But your fingers have shown me.
Your head is so clever,
You claim that you own me.
Forever.
Forever.
Forever.
Forever.

You have the right to conduct me,
In whatever fashion.
Your attempt construct me,
In the interest of passion.
You sent me,
To Toledo.
Toledo.
Toledo.

I came back with handfulls,
I did what you asked me.
But after the thank yous,
That you quickly got passed me.
I'm expected.
You're expecting.
I'm expected.
Expected.
