I Can't Wash Your Sayings Out of My Mouth


I wanted to kiss my name off your lips,

Taking back my identity

Because after each kiss,

My body felt a little empty

My mouth hasn't stopped talking of you,

To everyone I meet

But it's reciting your name and your sayings,

That makes my heart skip a beat

I'll kiss you for my name back,

So I can remember who I had been

Before I fell and drowned,

Before you pulled me in
