“Rob Me Blind” Jay Brannan

Can we clear the air between us, and can we do it soon?
I’ve been clawing at the mortar- your nails are dirty, too
When night falls, I crawl to the window, reach for the pane
I’ll fall, but I call you anyway

Someday we’ll be eating lobster and drinking fine champagne
I’ll sell seashells by your seashore ’til you swim through my veins
He who sails is he who discovers, let’s hear “Anchors aweigh!”
There’s space to claim under these covers, you steer clear of here anyway

You and me we spark- no, I take that back
Like a dancer in the dark, my beauty, it’s black
Just match your lips up to mine
Come on and steal a kiss, rob me blind

You don’t need another player gambling for your charms
Dreaming of a victory wrapped up in your coat of arms
I bid more if you’re taking score, and I’m all set to pay
But I’ll lose cuz you’ll choose him anyway

The greatest thing I ever learned is I don’t know a thing
The hardest thing I ever earned is a chance in the ring
“Simple boys make better boyfriends”- that just isn’t true
And time will tick ’til you can see there’s no simple in loving you

You and me we spark- no, I take that back
Like a dancer in the dark, my beauty, it’s black
Just match your lips up to mine
Come on and steal a kiss, rob me blind
