you, me, your wife and her boyfriend

I took you back to the station
hugged you long and tight
kissed your neck again as the train approached
and wished you a lovely vacation with your wife
I went back home alone and was hurting
I wish I could say I didn't
I love your neck
Do you remember me smelling it in the park when we first met?
 
You held me
and you told me to talk to you if it starts to hurt
if it's not okay anymore
I said this will be hard and you said that you know
I am afraid that I will lose you as a consequence
because it could be the only way for you
but I want it the other way, what's the alternative?
What do you plan to say to me, if I told you?
 
I am glad you wanted to visit me one last time
even if it was just for a few hours
shortly before you left the city for over a week
you said that it had been much too long
as you revealed my breasts and kissed them
the last time was tuesday
today is friday
I am glad that you are longing for me so much
I do too, for you
 
You asked me to be yours and I said yes
it was just an image where I ticked the box
but I meant it
You sent me a song that ends with
"can I keep you?" and I said yes
I know, it is just a song
but I meant it
I know your feelings are true too
 
You are so precious to me
I still can't believe that I found you
and that you fell for me too
and please don't let it bother you
that you're seventy-four and I only twenty-two
you know that it doesn't matter
 
Sometimes you just stop and watch me
shaking your head, smiling, in complete disbelief
and then you're saying it yourself
it is incredible how well we click in every way
that I do things the way I do
but it's not only me, it makes sense,
because you are different too
You're not doing that so often anymore
 
I hope you'll want me to be your girlfriend
I will find a way to deal with the distance
that you'll never be there waiting for me
when I come home from work
because you are living with your wife
her boyfriend seems to be able to deal with it, too
