I Want To Be Your Last First Kiss…

Recently I have become an Anberlin fan.
Their newest CD entitled Cities is awesome.
I have been thinking and loving the words to one of their songs in particular called Inevitable.
These are the lyrics…

Inevitable by Anberlin

Do you remember when we were just kids,
and cardboard boxes took us miles from what we would miss?
School yard conversations taken to heart,
and laughter took the place of everything we knew we were not.

I want to break every clock.
the hands of time could never move again.
We could stay in this moment for the rest of our lives.
Is it over now hey, hey is it over now?
I want to be your last first kiss
that you’ll ever have.
I want to be your last first kiss.

Amazing how life turns out, the way that it does.
We end up hurting the worst, the only ones we really love.

I want to break every clock.
the hands of time could never move again.
We could stay in this moment for the rest of our lives.
Is it over now hey, hey is it over now?
I want to be your last first kiss
that you’ll ever have.
I want to be your last first kiss.

Is it over now hey, hey is it over now?
Is it over now hey, hey it’s not over now.
I want to be your last first kiss
that you’ll ever have.
I want to be your last first love
that you’ll ever have.
Lying here beside me, palms and eyes open wide,
I want to be your last first kiss
for all time

That one line gets me every time, I want to be your last first kiss. For a moment, stop and think about some of the simple things that are so beautiful that people take for granted and miss the beauty in. Like a kiss. I hear so many young people talking about “going all the way” before they’re married or I watch people make public displays of themselves in public with another person and I think they have missed the beauty of the kiss. I hope I never forget the beauty in the simple things. I hope that there is someone worth that last first kiss.

Yours Truly,
The Kindred Spirit, the romantic

  1. Darc, Ahhh… That is the line that gets me too! I love what you wrote about the simplicity of love. The beauty of a kiss deserves to be cherished. Your picture captures that very well… It’s almost magical! I can’t wait to meet your man someday… He is going to be one amazing guy! But until then, I love making the most of our singleness together… What do you wanna do next!?… Oh, of course, Starbucks! 😉
