lyrics

Seeing you again is like takin' penicillin with wine
Nullifies the effects but the numbness sure is fine
Told myself this was a cycle I would break
Between the wine and the memories there's only so much I can take

So kiss me back to the past, back to the red dress and a lie that would last
Touch me back to the day where a vision was made without a glimpse of your way
Kiss me back to the past

Seems to me you've changed, could just be the city we're in
Even told myself the person before me could be a twin
Find the way through a past of broken paths
Away from the light and the sighs of the last

So kiss me back to the past, back to the window and crows on the sill
Touch me back to the day, before I knew I would ask you to stay
Kiss me back to the past

A combination of masochism and lazy
Means I didn't wait until my heart she forgave me
I swallow the cycle
I choke on the salt
And I wait....

Your skin might make me burn but what puts out the fire
It takes some time to heal from a loss of fleshly power
All those times the hand touched the coals
A second too long and the story unfolds

So kiss me back to the past, back to a red dress and a lie that would last
Touch me, even today despite a glimpse of your way
Kiss me into the past....
Oh, kiss me into the past...
Oh, kiss me into the past...
