I want to live in a tactile world where each line in my skin, each pulse of my heart
Stretches, extending, unfolding, unfurled, massaging in
To each piece, each part
The touch of my skin, begins sinking in
Devouring the pristine and trading for, mmmmm,
Feeling, bradaoo, feeling, bradaoo

With deep lines and one-of-a-kind, this clay and marble art sets my senses free
Free to the touch, no laws, no lines, no glass, no guards,
No lock, no key
This touch, to me, it means so much
Feeling, bradaoo, feeling, bradaoo

One day, I’m going to need to hold you
What is love if we never do?
Overwhelm me, I beg of you
This could be beauty

I write this in an ancient book with leather skin that crumbles and frays
And thick pages I am just writing away
As it finally lives today
Today, today
Feeling, bradaoo, feeling, bradaoo
