We have our own apartments
We have no wedding plans
Our twenties are our twenties
All loose lips and busy hands

And all these pretty people make my cheeks all flushed and flattered
Too many good friends and way too much to like, to like
Like after-party sidewalk chats that last forever
Like strands of hair that dance with pairs of eyes
Sometimes it's hard to breathe
Sometimes it feels like torture
Shaking when you talk, blushing like a birthday girl
Feeling strangely serious and filled with something dangerous

I speak to you in circles
We hear a good song, and laugh like something's funny
Believe in something sweet and safe and uneventful
And when it goes wrong, try to be surprised
We gave up such a good thing
For something we regret
And in our sleep, we say our sorries
And we try our best to take it back, but we don't have the heart for that

I see how you inhale so fast and act so different
There is a good friend trapped inside your body
It's so easy to kiss eyelids in the dead of winter
So hard to say I like you as a friend
And now I don't know how to touch you
So I take a clumsy guess
The pieces fit; we made it out somehow
Our coffee dates will end in coffee, and that'll be just fine for now
