Chica Cherry Cola by Jez Farmer

As I lay trying to sleep out the night
I think of your kisses teasing my skin
In the loneliness, I still feel you bite
And the scratching of your nail like a pin
Awake, wide awake, yet I’m dreaming sin
The lust filled desirings of you and I
I feel your lips as they take me within
The pleasure found inside a sensual cry
I think of you now with a growling sigh
And wish the stars would bring you to my bed
So, I can see the passion in your eye
I curse the time we are apart instead
If I am to sleep it has to be said
I need to get our love out of my head
