Song Lyrics - Can You Spare A Kiss?

I want to kiss you
Just for the sake of it
I want to hold you
Don't make anything of it

Can you spare a kiss?
Just for the sake of it?
Or does the fear in your heart
Tell you to forget about it?

You have such a pretty face
It's all I need to see
We haven't even spoken
But your kiss is what I need

Can you kiss
Just for the sake of it?
Can you kiss
And not make something of it?
Are you saving yourself
For a life long romance?
Or can you spare a kiss
And just take a chance?

Every girl I see
Has longing in her eyes
Is it just for love
And a kiss with no goodbyes?

Every girl I see
Wants love from the start
Can't you just kiss
And not worry about your heart?

Can you kiss
Just for the sake of it?
Can you kiss
And not make something of it?
Are you saving yourself
For a life long romance?
Or can you spare a kiss
And just take a chance?

Maybe I'm wrong
Maybe you're like me
A man who needs a kiss
But longs to be free

Don't take it personal
You are worth a lifetime
But just wanting a kiss
Isn't some sort of crime

Can you kiss
Just for the sake of it?
Can you kiss
And not make something of it?
Are you saving yourself
For a life long romance?
Or can you spare a kiss
And just take a chance?

@Nan - thank you!

@Vy - I hope you don't mind me calling you Vy... typing your name with a broken finger is tougher than writing a song! Thank you again my friend!

Hi SP- I don't have a broken finger but I only type with one. Sorry about yours. A kiss, perchance, a buss upon those luscious lips with my hands upon your hips. How romantic and enticing. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

@sligobay - I broke it falling down while playing paintball. I was avoiding "bullets" and didn't see a tree root portruding up from the ground. I was trying to keep up with teenagers... the splint is off but the finger is very stiff...

I appreciate your comments... I wasn't sure how this one would be taken... it's just about a man who wants a beautiful moment with a beautiful girl.. they can talk relationship later.... in other words "do I have to make a promise to get a kiss or can we kiss and just enjoy that?"

@SP: Get well soon. Stop worrying about the reception and just keep writing. This captured the 'longing' we all share.

@slogibay - aye aye captain... the finger is definitely healing on it's own time frame and not mine... a long slow kiss is on my list so I wrote about it....

@SP: My old Irish grandfather, John, who never left Ireland, at the age of 84 was asked at a party: " John, at what age is it that a man loses interest in women?" Grandpa John thought for a moment. "I surely don't know", said he, "You'll need to ask someone older than me!" True Story, I swear.

A long slow kiss will remain on my mind until I am reclaimed by the soil.

@sligobay - well I'm 52 and I detect no drop-off in my interest levels in the opposite sex. In fact it's more intense than ever... when do I qualify for "dirty old man status?" Ha.....

How nice to get company. This is just one thing that makes men similar.

@sikaruku - thank you for commenting. I figured more than one man could relate to what I say here. It's a matter of wanting affection from a beautiful woman while at the same time being reluctant to having conditions attached to the moment....
