If you listen, to the night
You can hear the darkness call
I can barely stand to wait
I can barely stand at all
C'mon closer to me now
It's like we're sharing the same skin
We gotta get out of this jail
We gotta let the future in
So many things in your life
That your bound to regret
Why didn't I do that?
Why didn't I do this?
So many chances you lost
That you'll never forget
Why didn't I make it?
Why didn't I take it right there?
The loneliest words you'll ever know
If only-if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be:
It could have been me. it could have been me
The loneliest words you'll ever know
If only-if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be:
It could have been me. it could have 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're gonna 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 wanna show you it all
What to do and where and how!
Cause we'll never be as young as we are right now
We'll never be as young as we are right now!

So many cries in the night
That you try 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'll ever know:
If only - if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be:
It could have been me
It could have been me
The loneliest words you'll ever- know:
If only - if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be:
It could have been me
It could have 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 has 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!

Tyre tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind!
It doesn't matter what we're losing
It only matters what we're going to find!
Tyre tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind!
It doesn't matter what we're losing
It only matters what we're going to find!
Tyre tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind!
It doesn't matter what we're losing
It only matters what we're going to find!
Tyre tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind!
It doesn't matter what we're losing
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
