Kissing Lesson (If I Could See You)

If I could see you
I would give you a kissing lesson
And you would adore
The one-on-one messing
With my lips

If I could see you
I would play you piano melodies
And you would come in strong
At just the right bar
On guitar

If I could see you
I would waltz you through butterflies and cotton balls
Until you fell fast
Asleep in my clothes
Feet exposed

If I could see you
I would wash you in a candlelight bath
Bubbles and marijuana
And anything you might ask
Would be yours

If I could see you
I would feed you smoked ham and butter beans
And to your heart's content
You could slumber and snore
After sex

And I would never mind at all
If I could see you
