Kiss Before You Leave

The Sory Behind Kiss Before You Leave Me

Very simple and straight forward. One day he was mad and left without a kiss. It hurt my feelings. I wrote this song.  Of course, there is a lot of exaggeration in the song that  did not actually go with the experience that generated the song.  But, I let the words evolve to create just a little more hostility...not hostility - upset to feel out the lyrics more.   And the melody was set up to go a little more with the younger generation.  Back then I was writing to appeal to that market. 

 

 

 

Had me so confused
Had me feeling twisted
Had me wondering if I was so wrong
Denied my whole existence
Did you know you were hurting me?
Did you even care

Don’t I get a kiss before you leave me
Don’t I get a hug to start my day
Don’t I get to know that you really love me
I need to know if I should stay
I can’t take more heartache
I can’t bear more pain
Have to make it different
I have to make a change
You knew you were….

I don’t need a kiss before you leave me
I don’t need a hug to start my day
I don’t need to know that you really love me
Do know that I can’t stay

Now that it’s all over
Now that it’s past tense
I realize I always had all the answers
I knew them for myself
I don’t need a kiss before you leave me
I don’t need your hug to start my day
I don’t need to know that you really love me
And baby I won’t stay
