Cover For Your Sin



I hope you can love me. I make bananas split.
My mind equates with you.
I'm fodder for your wit.

I hope you can love me. I make hurricanes gust.
My flesh gyrates with you.
I'm body for your lust.

I hope you can love me. I make fantasies bloom.
My yarn narrates with you.
I'm fiber for your loom.

I hope you can love me. I make infernos heat.
My dance relates with you.
I'm music for your feet.

I hope you can love me. I make hyenas laugh.
My joy mutates with you.
I'm reason for your gaffe.

I hope you can love me. I make offenders pray.
My soul migrates with you.
I'm comate for your play.

I hope you can love me. I'm like Sir Robin Hood.
My loot rotates with you.
I'm robber for your good.

I hope you can love me. I make romantics win.
My heart pulsates with you.
I'm cover for your sin.
