You said, “I’m sorry if I misinterpreted you.”
“I guess I overanalyzed.”
But I’m an idiot and you were right all along
It’s me who should apologize
We kept the stars awake confessing everything
'Til there was nothing left to say
And then you turned to me your eyes halfway to a dream
What kind of man would turn away?
Nobody but me

I should've kissed you
I should've kissed you
Totally blew it
I didn't do it
But God I wanted to
I should've kissed you
I told myself when
You leaned in closer
Here comes my big chance
But then it was over
And now I miss you
I should've kissed you

I play that moment back a hundred different ways
Each time I kick myself again
You had to settle for a hug and squeeze of the hand
The consolation of a friend
My eyes abandoned you to chase a light in the sky
An airplane flying high above
I wanted so badly to tell you this isn’t me
I need your love – I believe in love
Despite how it seems

You know this wasn’t
What I was intending
A tale for the ages
A storybook ending.
