From the recording Why Didn't I Kiss You?


You stood like a light at the foot of the stairs
Glistening, beckoning, answering my prayers
For over a year all I wanted was you
Reading the signs but never taking the cue
Why didn’t I kiss you?
You offered me all my heart and body craved
But the hints weren’t clear by the way you behaved
Were you looking for love or just for some fun
While I stood there loaded with a frozen gun?
Why didn’t I kiss you?
In all the time passed since that fateful day
Do you ever go back and get carried away?
And think where you’d be if you’d made that move?
Well I want you to know that I think on it too
I guess we know now what we didn’t know then
It’s best just to answer the pull and dive in
But what could have been wasn’t and all that lives on
Are our hearts less full and our chances all gone
Why didn’t I kiss you?
