wanted to be somebody’s someone
wanted to massage somebody’s shoulder
under a down comforter watching the news
with the heat up high
it’s cold outside
and I wanted to be somebody’s someone
wanted to taste somebody’s kiss
cook meals I’ve never cooked
feel that soft tornado in my stomach
when they come walk by
wanted oceans only got
rivers
wanted a strong, yet smooth hand
to hold in the night
wanted a smile to fall
into in the morning
wanted mangos only got
lemons
wanted to be somebody’s someone

but only got myself
only got myself to hold
and I’m gonna love me
good
