You've Got a Lot of Teeth

from Ten Things Which Aren't Love by Pale Bird

lyrics

When I think of you, I don’t think of your eyes
I think of your lips and I think of your smile
Because you’ve got a lot of teeth

When I built my kingdom, I filled it with vegetables
Because even in fantasy you have to be sensible
And you’ll need something to eat
Or you’ll find something to eat

But there’s nothing to fear
Unless you’re afraid of all the things that terrify me
Like people goodbye-ing, or turning aside
Or smiling so wide with a mouthful of teeth

If I have a tittle, I want a hat
And a crustacean army
With a chitinous clatter
And something to help me to breath

A servile companion to help me remember
And a trusted companion to help me forget
The ivory flash of your teeth

But there’s nothing to fear
Unless you’re afraid of all the things that terrify me
Two letterbox eyes, each one hungry for news
And a skull full of teeth
Each one hungry for you

I am a frog who’s been kissed more than once
At least
Once more than once
And maybe that’s not enough
To transform something like me

But when I think of you I think of your style
And I think of your laughter
And I think of your smile
Because you’ve got a lot of teeth
