Liner Notes: 

When someone you deeply care about keeps making self-destructive life decisions... what are you supposed to do?

Lyrics: 

Saw your face on the tv screen again.
Newspapers talking about what you’ve done and where you’ve been.
They ain’t got
Nothing nice to say.
Looks like it’s
Just another slow news day.
Every headline. Spouts another crime. Wish I could turn back time.

‘Cos I’d never show I miss you
But I just wanna kiss you

I know we’ve had our issues
I just wanna kiss you

Lying awake at 3:57am.
Writing this song Cos I’ve lost
my mind again
Then suddenly.
Three fifty-nine.
Wondering.
will this even rhyme?
Sing a lullaby. Close my eyes. Start to ask myself, why?

Baby, I’m On the brink.
Can’t seem to sleep a wink.
Need something to drink.

It wasn’t healthy being with you.
But I just wanna kiss you

I know we’ve had our issues
I just wanna kiss you

Saw your mom at the market in west end.
Keeping up appearances, at least in her head.
She understands
Doubt and despair
Living life
Without you there.
I don’t think less of you.
Wish I could rescue you. But I’m upset with you.
Just want what’s best for you.

The one who can change it all is you.
And I just wanna kiss you

I know we’ve had our issues
I just wanna kiss you

Insomnia, whiskey and dynamite.
Feel like They’re the Perfect company tonight.
Still I wish I could save you now.
Step in. Be the hero somehow.
But you always held that power.
Life was so sweet.
Don’t know how things turned sour.
These are the thoughts keeping me awake.
Something’s gotta give, or I’m going to break.
No telling how much more I can take.

Not gonna ever show I miss you
But I just wanna kiss you

I know we’ve had our issues
I just wanna kiss you

Saw your face on the tv screen again.
then I realise.
it’s still in your eyes.
Guess It’s no surprise

I just wanna kiss you

I just wanna kiss you

I just wanna kiss you

Very deep and melancholic lyrics. Specially like the whiskey, insomnia and dynamite being perfect company. The clash between feelings is very strong and very human, very nice.
