The Sweetest Sound in Town

If  I could kiss the ground
she stood on
I believe I could,
if she insisted
for sure I would,
my goal being, to reach
her precious lips,
lovely lips to kiss,
such lovely lips to kiss,
lips that could whisper
the sweetest sounds in town,
sweet sounds I loved to hear
every time she was near;
I would gladly put another quarter
in the jukebox if it would play
her voice over and over again,
she always seemed to give to me
the sweetest sounds in town
and I truly miss those sounds
since she's not in town.

Understood, James, but if you have to kiss the ground she stood on just for a "chance" to kiss her lips, I have a pretty good feeling that you would be jumping through her hoops whenever she wanted, and whatever she wanted. Maybe that would be what you wanted, but it would be a sad, sad life.

It is amazing the effect the voice of the one we adore can have on us. Just the sound of them saying our name can make our heart skip a beat. ~L
