Was a bright, sweet, and hot summer day
That Daddy loved a little more
Some little kid wound up my fire engine toy
As I walked to the grocery store

All the people think I'm going too slow
And they smiled at me as they passed
They've been there before
And they've come back again
And they were going right back for more

Love, love, love
You're a whore, you're a whore
You're a whore
Love, love, love, love
'Cause we beat you and mistreat you
But time after time
He kisses back, kisses hard on the mouth
It takes some talent, kisses hard on the mouth
Oh, kisses hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kisses hard on the mouth
Oh-oh-oh
Kisses hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kisses hard, kisses hard on the mouth

Was a bright, sweet, and hot summer day
That Daddy loved a little more
Couldn't see your face
Couldn't taste your kiss
Couldn't sleep in your embrace
While you danced all down the drain

Love, love, love
You're a whore, you're a whore
You're a whore
Love, love, love, love
'Cause we bruised you and abused you
But time after time
He kisses back, kisses hard on the mouth
Kisses hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kisses hard on the mouth
Oh-oh-oh
Kisses hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kisses hard, kisses hard on the mouth

Was a bright and sweet and hot summer day
That Daddy loved a little more
Some little kid wound up my fire engine toy
As I walked to the grocery store

All the people think I'm going too slow
And they smiled at me as they passed
But they've been there before
And they've come back again
And they were going right back for more

Love, love, love
You're a whore, you're a whore
You're a whore
Love, love, love, love
'Cause we cheat you and mistreat you
And beat you and bruise you
And use you and abuse you
And cruise you and lose you
But time after time
He kisses back until you're better
Kisses
Hard
Hard on the mouth
He kisses hard
Hard
Hard on the mouth
He kisses hard, hard, hard, hard, hard on the mouth
Kisses hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kissses hard on the mouth
Oh-oh-oh
Kisses hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Kisses hard
Hard
On the mouth

    General Comment:I've been slowly collecting Regina songs like this one, (that aren't available on cd.... And I FINALLY got this one. I had seen and read the lyrics before I got a hold of it though, so I was quite surprised at how upbeat the song sounds. I had imagined it to be quite slow and sad, something along the lines of Samson or Genuis Next Door or Blue Lips... Maybe that's her way of putting her tounge-in-cheek....

    I really think that the lyrics are so moving though....

    General Comment:I love this song. It's saying that you shouldn't do something you think you might regret, like leaving someone, especially someone whom you fell for really hard.

    General Comment:I dont think its so much not to break up with them, just that it will be hard. "he makes you by being cold and awful mean" - its something that must be done, even though you know you love them and that they will forever haunt you. Beautiful song, I saw her live last week and I wish she'd played it... check out "silly eye colour generalization" though, she played it then and twas wonderful!

    General Comment:I don't think it's necessarily saying you shouldn't leave someone. Leaving someone is inevitable. I feel like this song is about the first time you ever fall in love with someone in particular. "I'll never fall like that again." Yeah you'll fall in love again, but it'll never be the same as that first time.
    Also, names and dates and faces, places you were happy-- it's like when you go back to places that you went with them you'll always be reminded of them. And certain dates will have the same effect too.
    It's just such a wonderful song. All the lyrics are really simple and straightforward and it just...comes together perfectly.

    General Comment:i believe this song is saying never rush to try and get over your love, unless you absolutely have to, because if you try to rush out of it it'll come back and bite you in the ass. They will then continue to haunt you becuase your love for them never really went away, you just forced it to the side.

    "'Cause he will haunt your empty heart forever
    'Til your body turns to dust"

    and then you'll never be able to love another in the same way again.

    General Comment:I just love this song,

    it's just about forgiving,

    ¬ leaving someone, unless it's necessary

    because all the what if's will haunt you
