Tom Waits: Kiss Me

29 December 2018


The fire’s dying out
All the embers have been spent
Outside on the street
Lovers hide in the shadows
You look at me
I look at you
There’s only one thing
I want you to do

Kiss me
I want you to kiss me
Like a stranger once again
Kiss me like a stranger once again
I want to believe that our love’s a mystery
I want to believe that our love’s a sin
I want you to kiss me like a stranger once again

You wear the same kind of perfume
You wore when we met
I suppose there’s something comforting in knowing what to expect
But when you brushed up against me
Before I knew your name
Everything was thrilling
Because nothing was the same

I want you to kiss me
I want you to kiss me
Like a stranger once again
Kiss me like a stranger once again

I want to believe our loves a mystery
I want to believe our loves a sin
Oh will you kiss me like a stranger once again
I want you to kiss me like a stranger
Kiss me like a stranger once again
