I want to kiss death.
It wouldn’t be my first time.
Lower my heavy eyelids,
press her cool lips to mine.

I want to kiss death.
She’s been making eyes all night.
We’ve been waiting ’til we’re alone,
’til the moment is right.

A kiss ain’t a promise,
I’d still have time to decide
if I’ll let her lay me down,
if I’ll let her inside.

I used to kiss life,
but I knew it could never last.
He always wanted too much.
He always moved too fast.

Her fingers in my hair,
the sweetness of her breath.
That warm, musty air;
I want to kiss death.
