Kiss me slowly

It’s bad.

I was at the bank.
That song. Playing.
Kiss me slowly.

I started to fidget. Clicking my car key in and out of its frame. Waiting for a teller. I didn’t hear her say “next”. The man behind me tapped me on the shoulder with a smile as he pointed to the open teller. The song was spinning in my head, my eyes filling with tears. I gave her my deposit. She asked if I was okay I just nodded. The room was spinning. I wanted to run. I wanted to stay and hear the rest of the song remembering the moment I heard it with you first. These things must happen for a reason. Do they happen when you’re thinking of me? A song. I had a melt down, frozen unable to process, act or move, all because the most moving song I’ve ever felt/known started playing.

KISS ME SLOWLY:

Stay with me, baby stay with me,
Tonight don’t leave me alone.
Walk with me, come and walk with me,
To the edge of all we’ve ever known.
I can see you there with the city lights,
Fourteenth floor, pale blue eyes.
I can breathe you in.
Two shadows standing by the bedroom door,
No, I could not want you more than I did right then,
As our heads leaned in.

Well, I’m not sure what this is gonna be,
But with my eyes clenched all I see
Is the skyline, through the window,
The moon above you and the streets below.
Hold my breath as you’re moving in,
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes, baby don’t run, just kiss me slowly.

Stay with me, baby stay with me,
Tonight don’t leave me alone.
She shows me everything she used to know,
Picture frames and country roads,
When the days were long and the world was small.

She stood by as it fell apart,
Separate rooms and broken hearts,
But I won’t be the one to let you go.

Oh, I’m not sure what this is gonna be,
But with my eyes clenched all I see
Is the skyline, through the window,
The moon above you and the streets below.

Hold my breath as you’re moving in,
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes, baby don’t run, just kiss me slowly.

Don’t run away…
And it’s hard to love again,
When the only way it’s been,
When the only love you knew,
Just walked away…
If it’s something that you want,
Darling you don’t have to run,
You don’t have to go …

Just stay with me, baby stay with me,

Well, I’m not sure what this is gonna be,
But with my eyes clenched all I see
Is the skyline, through the window,
The moon above you and the streets below. (Don’t let go)
Hold my breath as you’re moving in,
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes, baby don’t run, just kiss me slowly.

Oh, I’m not sure where this is gonna go,
But in this moment all I know
Is the skyline, through the window,
The moon above you and the streets below. (Baby, don’t let go)
Hold my breath as you’re moving in,
Taste your lips and feel your skin.
When the time comes, baby don’t run, just kiss me slowly.
