Hugging Song

These are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs ever. It's about hugging. You should all listen to it and think about hugging your favorite person in the world. I promise it'll make you feel better. Unless you're on the other side of the country from that person. Then it may make you feel a bit lonely. But don't worry, you'll see them in a couple more weeks.

I Felt Your Shape
I thought I felt your shape but I was wrong
Really all I felt was falsely strong
I held on tight and closed my eyes
It was dumb I had no sense of your size

It was dumb to hold so tight
But last night
On your birthday in the kitchen
My grip was loose my eyes were open

I felt your shape and heard you breathing
I felt the rise and fall of your chest
I felt your fall
Your winter snows
Your gusty blow
Your lava flow
I felt it all
Your starry night
Your lack of light
With limp arms I can feel most of you

I hung around your neck independently
And my loss was overwhelmed
By this new depth I don't think I ever felt

But I don't know
My nights are cold
And I remember warmth
I could have sworn I wasn't alone
