A Kiss Is a Terrible Thing To Waste

(aah, if only) (aah, if only) …

(aah, if only) (aah, if only) …

If you listen to the night you can hear the darkness call
I can barely stand to wait, I can’t barely stand at all
C’mon closer to me now like we’re sharing the same skin
We gotta get out of this jail, we gotta let the future in!

So many things in your life that you’re bound to regret
Why didn’t I do that? Why didn’t I do this?
So many chances you lost that you’ll never forget
Why didn’t I make it? Why didn’t I take it right there?

The loneliest words you’ll ever know:
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there’ll ever be:
It could have been me, it could have been me

The loneliest words you’ll ever know:
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there’ll ever be:
It could have been me, it could have been me

You’ll have to pay for it later
If you don’t get it when it’s going for free
Believe me! Believe me!

A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
It’s something that’s always been so
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

And one of these nights you’re gonna show me that you already know
There’s a feast waiting for you and you never even gotten a taste
It’s later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

You shouldn’t tremble when we touch, there’s no reason for these fears
It’s a promise that was made, wWe’ve been promised this for years
I wanna show you it all: what to do, and where and how
‘Cause we’ll never be as young as we are right now!
We’ll never be as young as we are right now!

So many cries in the night that you try to ignore
Why didn’t I do this? Why didn’t I do that?
So many unanswered prayers, so many unopened doors
Why didn’t I take it? Why didn’t I make it come true?

The loneliest words you’ll ever know:
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there’ll ever be:
It could have been me, it could have been me

The loneliest words you’ll ever know:
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there’ll ever be:
It could have been me, it could have been me

You’ll have to pay for it later
If you don’t get it when it’s going for free
Believe me! Believe me! Believe me!

A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
It’s something that’s always been so
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

And one of these nights I’m gonna show you that you already know
There’s a feast waiting for you and you never even gotten a taste
It’s later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste....

There’s a feast waiting for you
And you never even gotten a taste
It’s later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste....

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That’s all we’re leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find!

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That’s all we’re leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find!

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That’s all we’re leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find! …

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That’s all we’re leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find!

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That’s all we’re leaving behind
It doesn’t matter what we’re losing
It only matters what we’re going to find!

There’s a feast waiting for you and you never even gotten a taste
It’s later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste
(a kiss is a terrible thing to waste)
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste.....
