Hypnotic Erotic

Written by: victor dixon

I could sleepwalk just to keep you around.
I could help you up when I let you down.
I could buy a webcam when I skip town,
but I can't bury the past on rented ground.
I could promise instead of saying, "I might..."
I could call you up to say goodnight.
I could turn the page if I turned on a light.
I could say I'm wrong and let you be right.

I could undergo hypnosis.
I could take an enhancer.
I could change the questions
so you were the answer.
I could take you out.
I could buy you dinner.
I could ask for forgiveness
and confess I'm a sinner.
I could tuck you in,
hold you all night long.
I could smile all the time
so you'd never ask what was wrong.

I could talk about the future as if the present would last.
I could talk in the progressive instead of simple past.
I could start answering questions before they've been asked.
I could talk about the future as if the present would last.
