Lyrics: 

After We Kissed

 by Andy Targoff

Most memories are like last week’s dream

But ours are etched in my mind

Our love is a great composer’s theme

Remaining vivid for all time

 

I had just moved to Brookline for music school

Escaped from my tiny third floor room

Footsteps echoed through the vestibule

When I detected the hint of perfume

 

Then you appeared with your radiant smile

I said, “I’m your neighbor from apartment three.”

We chatted for a little while

About how the winter had been so stormy

 

In the back of my mind, I hoped, as time went on

Our hearts would mesh like the breaking dawn

 

After we kissed, I knew I hadn’t been kissed like that before,

Hadn’t had the love that I wished for, Hadn’t been touched so tenderly 

After we kissed, We’d both longed for this for so long. 

That’s when I knew you loved me, After we kissed. 

 

Two years danced by like life’s ballet

As I moved back and forth from the city

Every once and a while along the way

I wondered about my friend who looked so pretty

 

I was working as a cashier in the health food store

When suddenly you came into my view

Like the birds know how to fly and the waves find the shore

I had to reconnect with you

 

I knew there was no more time to wait

So I finally arranged for our first date

 

After we kissed, I knew I hadn’t been kissed like that before,

Hadn’t had the love that I wished for, Hadn’t been touched so tenderly 

After we kissed, We’d both longed for this for so long. 

That’s when I knew you loved me, After we kissed. 

 

Your eyes still keep drawing me nearer

Your words still make me feel freer

And when your arms hold me

You know I never feel lonely

 

Excitement bristled in the New England air

As we pulled into the Chestnut Hill movies

Whatever we were seeing, I didn’t really care

My fantasy was right in front of me

 

Your scent left me in an enchanted blur

I held your hand and I couldn’t let go

We ducked behind a white-tiled pillar

Instead of heading into the show

 

Our gaze was steadfast and engrossing

I stroked your face and pulled you closer

 

After we kissed, I knew I hadn’t been kissed like that before,

Hadn’t had the love that I wished for, Hadn’t been touched so tenderly 

After we kissed, We’d both longed for this for so long. 

That’s when I knew you loved me, After we kissed.
