You have ruined my sense of touch
I've never felt as safe as I did in your arms
There is nobody who makes my skin spark with electricity the way you did
Nobody whose warmth I don't shy away from now because it isn't yours

Human touch just doesn't feel the same since I met you
My body rejects any skin that isn't yours

It takes seven years to replace every cell in your body
In seven years none of your cells will have touched mine
So maybe I'll get my sense of touch back then

But oh how tragic it is that my cells will never have been touched you
