"That Kiss" as written by and Liam James Fray....
The way that you looked at him
And then you looked at me
You must think that I'm proper blind
Proper blind not to see
That I was just a stop gap
Sitting somewhere in-between his hand and his lap
Let me tell you that I wasn't born yesterday, my dear

That kiss it lasted too long
And we probably shouldn't have danced to that song
It was nothing
It was everything
It's really such a shame
It's so hard to explain to you

He's back in town tonight
He's expecting you round a quarter to nine
But you won't be there
'Cause he bores the proverbials off you
If he only knew what you thought
The lust, the lack of trust, the temptation you fought
He's worthless, the maxims he flouts
And he's just a passing fashion and he's on his way out

That kiss it lasted too long
And we probably shouldn't have danced to that song
It meant nothing
It meant everything
It's really such a shame
It's so hard to explain to you

I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it
I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it

That kiss it lasted too long
And we probably shouldn't have danced to that song
It was nothing
It was absolutely everything
It's really such a shame
It's so hard to explain to you

That kiss, that girl, that place that you go
Where is she now?
You don't even know

    General Commentgreat song... obviously inspired by the work of The Smiths, but also giving it their own character and taking music to another different situation.

    General Commentabout a guy who has a thing with a girl, maybe just the one kiss or something that has been building for a while and culminated in a kiss. she doesn't want to go back to her boyfriend "wont be there, he bares the preverbals off of you but equally she isn't committing to the new guy either, as much as he would like her too "I know that I shouldn't but I enjoyed it." either way, losers in love all round this time :-(
