Kiss Before You Leave

Home Lyrics 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
