Teeth – Dientes

How many desperate kisses
are imprisoned in your mouth?
Your teeth are the bars
that keep them prisoners.
And me and my thirst
holding the secret key.
Come close to me
and with my tongue
I shall let them free.

And just thinking about it
I must end my verse here.

¿Cuántos besos desesperados
encarcelas en tu boca?
Tus dientes son las rejas
que los mantiene presos.
Y yo aquí sedienta
tengo la llave secreta.
Ven y acércate
que con mi lengua
los liberaré.

Y tan sólo de pensarlo
mi verso aquí terminaré.
