  • Excuse me for this
    I just want a kiss
    I just want to know what it feels like to touch
    Something so pure
    Something I'm so sure of
    What it feels like to stand outside your door
    I'm unworthy
    I can see you're above me
    But I can be lovely given the chance

    Don't move
    I want to remember you just like this
    Don't move
    It's only a breath or two between our lips

    I know why you left
    I can't blame you myself
    Must be hard living with ghosts and such an empty shell
    I tried to warn you
    I've been a mess since you've known me
    I can't promise forever
    But I'm working on it
    If I can't hold you
    Can I give you a kiss

    Can I have a kiss

    I see that you're torn
    I've got some scars of my own
    Seems I want what I know is gonna leave me hungry

    Don't move
    I need to remember you just like this

    I know why you left
    I can't blame you myself
    Must be hard living with ghosts and such an empty shell
    I tried to warn you
    I've been a mess since you've known me
    I can't promise forever
    But I'm working on it
    If I can't hold you
    Can I give you a kiss

    Can I

    All I have
    All I can give to you I will
    Just promise this
    If I can't have forever
    Can I have a kiss, kiss, kiss
    No

    I know why you left
    I can't blame you myself
    Must be hard living with ghosts and such an empty shell
    I tried to warn you
    I've been a mess since you've known me
    I can't promise forever
    But I'm working on it
    If I can't hold you
    Can I give you a kiss

    Can I give you a kiss
    Can I, can I
    Can I have a kiss Writer/s: DWIGHT BAKER, KELLY CLARKSON, JIMMY MESSER
