Not on the Lips

you just turned your head too slowly
and my aim was weak
but now the whole room shakes
the record skips skips skips

i meant to kiss you
on the cheek
not on the lips

can't you see that it was nothing
more than poor technique
you were hugging me
and suddenly i lost my grip

i meant to kiss you
on the cheek
not on the lips
honest i did

now our eyes are softly smiling
but afraid to meet
a world of possibilities
at our fingertips

i meant to kiss you
on the cheek
not on the lips
honest i did

i meant to kiss you
on the cheek
not on the lips
but that’s not what i did
