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
