Jim Steinman – A Kiss Is A Terrible Thing To Waste lyrics

If you listen to the night
You can hear the darkness call
I can barely stand the wait
I can barely stand at all
Come on closer to me now
Like we're sharing the same skin
We've gotta get out of this jail
We've 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've lost that you'll never forget:
Why didn't I make it?
Why didn't I take it right there?


The loneliest words you will ever know:
If only if only it were so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be:
It coulda been me, it coulda been me
The loneliest words you will ever know:
If only if only it were so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be:
It coulda been me, it coulda 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've gotta show me that you already know
There's a feast waiting for you and you've 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
We've been promised this for years
I want to show you it all
What to do and where and how
Cause we'll never be as young as we are right now
CAUSE WE'LL NEVER BE AS YOUNG AS WE ARE RIGHT NOW!


So many cries in the night that you've tried 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 will ever know:
If only if only it were so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be :
It coulda been me, it coulda been me
The loneliest words you will ever know :
If only if only it were so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be :
It coulda been me, it coulda 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've 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've 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 lose, 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 lose, 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 lose, 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 lose, 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 lose, it only matters what we're going to find

There's a feast waiting for you and you've 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.
