Baby do not lie Why do we fight? Are we just not satisfied? It started as a crush Now I can’t keep up Diamond falling gently from my eyes as I’m overlooked Will you be mine?

And I wish You knew how it felt sometimes But it’s difficult I know you’re jaded and it’s not my fault You’re driving miles thinking I’ll lead you on I want you now I want you now I wish I was your type Hope you keep me in mind (Please) We could more be more than friends If you were here tonight Pick up, outside of town No need to fool around Til you say Your world is upside down Til you found common ground Boy I’ll stay We could be more than friends We could be more than just a bar in the dark We could be more than friends Till you say You’re rough around the edge The ones I never find (The ones I never find) (The ones I never find) Scared to be intimate But you held me tonight Pick up, outside of town No need to fool around Til I say The tables spinning round Til we find common ground Boy I’ll stay I know you’re jaded And it’s not my fault Between the spaces You’re re willing to fall You’re driving miles Thinking I’ll lead you on I want you now Why don’t you try me on

Circles in my mind I run tonight Even though I've no bones Last time we spoke you were cold as ice Said I was * Said I was toxic Said that my friends were too I hurt you Wasn't trying Never said I deny it You said that it all was a lie Why waste my time and yours You said I'm desperate may be true But you wanted me for yours Time was never a friend Never the enemy But it always lets me down I know I made you out to be the fool again But all I wanted was to be Close 2 u All I wanted was to be Close 2 u All I wanted was to be Close 2 u Close baby girl ima keep it in motion Im wit it wherever u going any time- any place— u can get it how u want it I really don't wanna quit u babe— but u don't wanna be committed babe and it's a goddamn shame— i saw a future with u in it babe yeah I know that something had to change- but i aint know we wanted different thangs I was tryna play a different game— I guess in the end tho it's all the same I wanted to wake up to u today— I wanted to hear what u had to say I wanted to do this a different way— I wish we waited another day big heart I can never be broken- I'm wit it wherever ur going any time any place— u can call me on the phone and baby tell me how u doing?— ima tell u how it's going and if u come around my town— ima tell u where we going baby it's nothing but love— Eric don't hold a grudge it wasn't written in the stars-- it wasn't written in the cards u know that I know that u know the truth— it's hard to let go of me & u yeah I know what we supposed to do—but I just wanna be close to u Close 2 u Close 2 u Close 2 u Close I wanna be over u Over whoever I knew I wanna be close 2 u I wanna be

Wants to creep in the night We can find a way to Lover now a scar And mama told me boys will break your heart But I’m dumb til the end I know And I don’t usually do this But I don’t mind if you won’t tell And I don’t usually want this But I just need your affection I think about us in my bedroom I think of all the things we could do could do I think about us in my bedroom They say we shouldn’t but I want to, I want to.

about

Rarely are sequels much more accomplished than their predecessors, but South Carolina's Ahomari (they/them) committed to that impossible mission. Girl Kiss II—the sprawling and expansive continuation of last year’s Girl Kiss EP—finds the Black queer artist crossing their own intersections by tearing up the roadmap. Anchored by yearning but weightless in every other way, the release feels beamed in from another galaxy where crushes, vibes, and identity exist in imperfect, but welcome, harmony.

Girl Kiss II, like any sci-fi classic, is best taken as a seamless and cinematic whole, where vignettes and interludes add to their cosmic zone. When singled out, “Crush” is a proper teaser of the experience. Sticky electronic production heads to the forefront while Ahomari’s voice dips between curiosity and exasperation. Guest vocalist Taphari adds to the atmosphere, because it always takes two. “My Vibe” is built off a sparkling piano loop and a murky bass crawl, while “Ur Type” flips the script with roomy drum production and Ahomari’s threaded vocal layering. “CLOSECLOSECLOSE” scrapes and distorts while reaching out for connection, a noisy yet sparse offering that hangs lost in space while the arrangement orbits in and out. It’s all here on Girl Kiss II: loneliness, dependence, and reflection—just make it double.
