One Drunk Kiss

One drunk kiss…

Is what… started all this…

 

I’d been lied to and cheated

I was broken and bled

Thoughts of fabled true love

Had escaped from my head

 

Then you casually came along

Like an undiscovered song

This ostracized emotion

Finally felt like it belong

 

What I took as a fling

Suddenly meant everything

Just a moment to late

With all my love and now I sing

 

I’m still drunk in this love for you

And I don’t wanna be drunk in this love for you

And I don’t wanna be drunk in this love for you

But I don’t wanna be sober

 

One drunk kiss…

Is what… started all this…

 

The unwanted letters

The unanswered calls

The pain of feeling so much

For someone who’s moved on

 

The sad intoxication

That would lead to this love

Greatest gift ever given

Ever sent from above

 

It’s been three years times forever

Since we said goodbye

When you left me with nothing

But to sadly wonder why

 

I’m still drunk in this love for you

And I don’t wanna be drunk in this love for you

And I don’t wanna be drunk in this love for you

But I don’t wanna be sober

 

The kiss that ended all

Seemed so very small

But really not so different

From the one that made me fall

 

Tragically unceasing desperately

I made this vow

I’d never love another

But another’s with you now

 

I’m still drunk in this love for you

And I don’t wanna be drunk in this love for you

And I don’t wanna be drunk in this love for you

But I don’t wanna be sober
