Brings down empires
Builds new lives
It all starts with
Are you daring?
Are you terrified?
Do you wonder?
Do you hope?
The push of air from my lips to yours
The pull of magic lingering in time
Dig your hands a little deeper into your pockets
So your sweaty palms don't give you away
After all, it's just a kiss
