It was just a

“Nice to meet you”

But for once it felt genuine

It was just a

“Came for a quick hello”

But I thought it made me something

Now you’re trying on

“Good night baby”

Like I keep trying on dresses you’ll like

Now I’m not making any promises

But I’ll tell you you’re running laps in my head

I’m not about to use the word love

But I do like hearing when you dream about me

I really don’t want to get hurt the way I’ve been before

But I feel like you’d do bad things to me, I’d let you

However you want to try me on,

So long as you don’t leave damage in your wake,

I will let you try me on.

I may look innocent, but I’ll dive into you

If we wanted to try each other on.
