I never touched a cigarette tonight
but I smell like smoke and other women.
How am I going to get you to kiss me tomorrow?
How am I going to wash the scent of other men and women from my hair?
How will I wash away the bruises of a being pushed against the bar, against the wall, against a thigh? Against everything but you.
Everyone in Vienna kissed me today,
You seem so shy, that I refuse to make the first move.
So, lay one on me, or fuck off.
“Lay one on me” is American slang for: kiss me passionately.
It’s American slang for saying,
“Alessandra, can I kiss you?”
and then running your hands through my hair,
and pulling my face towards yours, and kissing me.
Is American angry-keyboard-gravity-stomping-dialect for:
“Why haven’t you kissed me already?!”
So, what I am saying is:
Why haven’t you kissed me already?
