lyrics

I grow dandelions
I grow weeds that heal my body
I live in a town where the grass grows in the field where my mama told me
she once kissed a girl who'd never been kissed before
now i want a girl to kiss me
but I'm a afraid so I hide in my house, go out, dig my hands in the ground
and I say what I want to do with my mouth
but i don't always do it
I say what I want to do with my mouth
I don't know if I mean it
I say what I want to do with my mouth x2
I say what I want to do with you
If you want me to
what do you wanna do?

I wanna love so much
sometimes I feel betrayed by my body
when it's tired, and sick, and afraid of your touch
and I feel like no one would want me
If they know who I am, do you see who I am?
I'm not a girl, I feel foolish and petty
and I'm hiding from you, cuz what if I'm true?
and you love me for who I am and I can't pretend that's the reason I'm afraid to be your lover or your friend.
So what is the reason?

I'm so tired, I cry in my house
go out, bury my heart in the ground
and I say what I want to do with my mouth
but I don't always do it
I say what I want to do with my mouth
I think this time I'll mean it
I say what I want to do with mouth x2
I say what I want to do with you
If you want me to
what do you wanna do?
