The Infant Kiss

I say good night-night
I tuck him in tight
But things are not right

What is this? An infant kiss
That sends my body tingling?

I've never fallen for
A little boy before
No control

Just a kid and just at school
Back home they'd call me dirty
His little hand is on my heart
He's got me where it hurts me
Knock, knock. Who's there in this baby?
You know how to work me

All my barriers are going
It's starting to show
Let go. Let go
Let go. Let go. Let go

I cannot sit and let
Something happen I'll regret
Ooh, he scares me!

There's a man behind those eyes
I catch him when I'm bending

Ooh, how he frightens me
When they whisper privately
(Poor, stupid girl!)
Windy-wailey blows me

Words of caress on their lips
That speak of adult love
I want to smack but I hold back
I only want to touch
But I must stay and find a way
To stop before it gets too much!
