Musicals – Whistle Down The Wind - A Kiss Is A Terrible Thing To Waste lyrics

[Amos]
Lets make a promise, and then lets take a vow
Times running out, the only time left is now
And you know you deserve more than this
If you trust me at all then just give it a chance
They all want you to crawl but I want you to dance
And if we make a pact then it's only right to seal it with a kiss

If you listen to the night you can hear the darkness call
I can barely stand to wait I can barely stand at all
So come 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 your bound to regret
Why didn't I do this? Why didn't I do that?
So many chances you've lost that you'll never forget
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 were so

[Amos & The Man]
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 were so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be
It could have been me, it could have been me

[Amos]
You'll have to pay for it later if you don't get it when it's going for free
Believe me, Believe me!

So come with me now we can fly away
There's a time to be saved but your damned if you stay
Put your foot on the gas and lets go

Take a chance on a promise and a roll of the dice
We can set a few fires we can melt all the ice
We can have more adventures than you ever even dreamed that you would know
There's a feast waiting for you and you never even gotten a taste

[Swallow]
There's a lot I haven't got

[Amos]
It's later than you think and a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

[The Man]
If you listen in the night you can hear your plans fall through
One more fight you'll never win, one more dream that won't come true

[Amos]
You shouldn't tremble when we touch, let me show you what to do and how
Cause We'll never be as young as we are right now

[Amos, The Man & Swallow]
We'll never be as young as we are right now

[The Man]
So many cries in the night that you try to ignore

[Amos]
Why didn't I do this?

[The Man]
Why didn't I do that?

[Amos & The Man]
So many unanswered prayers, so many unopened doors

[Amos]
Why didn't I take it?

[Amos & The Man]
Why didn't I make it come true?

The loneliest words you'll ever know, if only, if only it were 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 were 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

[Amos]
If you don't get it when it's going for free

[Amos & The Man]
Believe me, believe me, believe me

[Amos]
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

[Amos & The Man]
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

[Amos]
It's something that's always been so

[Swallow]
How I wish I could let go

[Amos]
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

[The Man]
You make one mistake and it can't be erased

[Amos]
And one of these nights I'm gonna show you that you already know

[Swallow]
I don't even know what I know

[Amos]
There's a feast waiting for you and you've never even gotten a taste

[The Man]
I'll kill him if he hurts her

[Amos & Swallow]
It's later than you think

[Amos & The Man]
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

[Amos]
Now's the time when you got to let go
