This song is by Bent Knee and appears on the album Say So (2016).

Every lawn is green
Every fence is white
You're the only thing I see
When I close my eyes

I touch your gears, I see green lights
I taste your tears, they're just like mine
I kiss your joints, I smell your skin
You hear my voice collapsing
Collapsing

I have a finished basement with a thick carpet
So my footsteps stay quiet as I tip down the stairs
At four in the morning while the kids are all sleeping
I'm busy assembling a secret worth keeping
From buckets of Legos, a trunk full of gaff tape
Arms, legs, a mouth, it's finally breathing
I kiss its right angles and crackling joints
You're sweeter than Sophie, more caring than Lisa
Now back in your cupboard, the sun is soon rising

Must be driving my children to school
At upon each stoplight or choke point in traffic
I'm dreaming in daylight of last night and romance
I'm dreaming of love so hidden and novel
That's blind to conditions beyond my control
Not rude nor suspicious, immune to diseases
A love that will last when I'm at last left alone, alone

Every lawn is green
Every fence is white
You're the only thing I see
When I close my eyes

I touch your gears, I see green lights
I taste your tears, they're just like mine
I kiss your joints, I smell your skin
You hear my voice collapsing
Collapsing
