After We Kissed

Andrew Targoff

Hi, I'm Andrew Targoff. I am a singer songwriter who produces my own songs. This is a love song describing how I met my wife during the years, 1985-1987. It's best listened with headphones because of the different harmonies in different locations.

Hi, I'm Andrew Targoff. I'm really excited about my new song, "After We Kissed," because it's the story of how I met my wife over 30 years ago. I wrote, arranged, sang all parts, and played the piano fills to the song. I love how the harmonies are placed in different places. It's like virtual reality of sound when you listen with head phones. It also reflects what is going on in the story.

Lyrics: After We Kissed, by Andrew 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.
