Can I be your punching bag,
Your dirty rag,
The one night stand you never had?
Can I be your stepping stone,
The place to go,
Your in-between of yes and no?
Can I be your one and only,
Your only family,
The dark at night to keep you lonely?
Can I be your lethal injection,
Your deadly infection,
The devil in your holy section?
Can I be your great escape,
Your favorite place,
The lonely latch on your rusted gate?
Can I be your means to say it,
Your way to fake it,
Your moaning face hid by the blanket?
Can I be your only breath,
Your source of stress
The only thing that makes you wet?
Can I be your blah blah blah,
Your la la la,
The flat note that changes it all.
