I left my girl at the top of the stairs,
tears in her eyes, hands in her hair.
Brushed myself down like I don't care,
forced a smile; get out of there.

Now all the casual cruelty
hardly seems so wrong.
As twist the knife how easily forgiven with

it's just one kiss
to build a dream upon.
It's just one kiss
to build our dreams upon.

Elemental force of nature.
I fall into your eyes.
As you rush with a vain to tear, soothe all that I despise.

Your fragile brutality,
our centrifugal pain,
draws the breath right out of me,
to pull us round again.

Please keep me with you safe my love,
'cos we will meet again before the end.

Met my girl by the railroad,
head in my hands.
She said, "I love you but I hurt you."
I said, "I understand."
And I cherish that malignancy
in every part of me.
We, the willing amputees over and over and over and over and over and over again

Until the end.

Just one kiss to build our dreams upon,
it's just one kiss
to build a dream upon.
It's just one kiss to build our dreams upon.

It's just one kiss
to build a dream upon.
It's just one kiss to build our dreams upon.
