The Infant Kiss

I say goodnight-night
I tuck him in tight
But things are not right --
What is this -- an infant kiss
That sends my body tingling?
I've never fallen for
a little boy before
No control
Just a kid and just at school
Back home they'd call me dirty
His little hand is on my heart
He's got me where it hurts me
Knock, knock, who's there in this baby?
You know how to work me

All my barriers are going
It's starting to show
Let go
Let go
Let go

I cannot sit and let
Something happen I'll regret
Ooh, he scares me
There's a man behind those eyes
I catch him when I'm bending
Ooh, how he frightens me
When they whisper privately
Windy -- wailey, blows me
Words of caress on thier lips
That speak of adult love
I want to smack but I hold back
I only want to touch
But I must stay and find a way
To stop before it gets too much

All my barriers are going
It's starting to show
Let go
Let go
Let go
