Kiss me now

Before I forget the meaning of life

Before the rough edges of the world

Cut me deep with such strife

Kiss me now

Before I forget how to breathe

Because a torrent of worries

Flood out of my mouth without leave

Kiss me now

Before I forget your touch

For out in the cold it is lonely

And the warmth of your hands do much

Kiss me now

As I am your fool to kiss

And love makes the world go round

Though foolish, I'm certain of this

And if the world should end

In cold flood or hot fire

There is only one thing

That my heart should desire

I would pull you close though

Waters rise and flames grow higher

And whisper my wishes

Before we retire:

Kiss me now, my love,

Kiss me.
