Kiss Me Twice

from What Kind Of Brother

Written: 03/1997 I wrote this one while I was in Carey, Illinois, visiting my Uncle Clarence shortly before he died.  He was fond of old-timey music, which may well have influenced his character. Thanks to my friend Stesha Brandon, who always asks me to play this song.  Now you may listen to it any time you want.

A long time ago when the world was flat
Eve said to Adam "How about that?
You've got yours and I've got mine
There'll be trouble 'til the end of time."

A snake in the garden, sun in the sky
Apple in the hand and oh my my
You and I shared love so sweet
Then you hit the road with your own two feet

You are like a prodigal child
I love you just because you're wild
You keep coming' back but you don't stay
Kiss me twice then you go away

Columbus proved that the world was round
He sailed his ship until he found
A place where tomorrow meets today
Like you and love he just turned away

You are like a prodigal child
I love you just because you're wild
You keep coming' back but you don't stay
Kiss me twice then you go away

Men have now walked on the moon
Could have stayed, but they came back soon
You and I once touched the sky
We could've stayed, but we didn't try

You are like a prodigal child
I love you just because you're wild
You keep coming' back but you don't stay
Kiss me twice then you go away
