Remember the Kiss
bill headley © 2006

Do you remember that summer we spent so long ago
Thought that we were all grown up at seventeen
We wasted lots of evenings parked at the drive-in picture show
I was tryin’ to be as cool as the guy up on the movie screen

Most afternoons we’d lounge by the neighbor’s swimming pool
Just smokin’ cigarettes and drinkin’ your Daddy’s beer
Dreamin’ of our lives together when we’d be outta school
At seventeen you face the future without fear

We just lived from day to day
Thinkin’ our love could conquer anything that got in our way
And time did not exist
When we were together…when we were together
I would dream of the kiss

Remember that high school dance when you pulled me out on the floor
The Eagles singin’ Best of My Love and the lights were low
With your head on my shoulder and our hearts keepin’ time in 4/4
When the song was over I didn’t wanna let you go

I looked into your eyes, you looked right back, somehow I knew
You moved your lovely face up next to mine
Your lips as soft as a crimson rose bathed in morning dew
And sweetly intoxicating as red wine

Now as the years roll quickly past
The reason why you left is as cloudy as a steamed-up looking glass
I’ve forgotten both the pain and bliss
But of the time we spent together…one thing I’ll always remember
I will remember the kiss

what kind of king?

what kind of king?
bill headley ©2001

what kind of king would lay down heaven's glory?
bringin' all his hopes and dreams into the earth
what kind of king could fulfill the prophet's story?
'cause he alone could claim the virgin birth

what kind of king could work in the heat of nazareth?
sweat upon his brow and callous on his hands
what kind of king could speak life into lazarus?
turn water into wine---laugh, love and dance

what kind of king would weep for our salvation
what kind of king would set his subjects free?
what kind of king would call himself
the servant of every nation?
the kind of king who would die for you and me

what kind of king would wear no regal splendor?
thorns, instead of jewels were in his crown
what kind of king would be tried with no defender?
then hung up on the cross ant the end of town

what kind of king would weep for our salvation
what kind of king would set his subjects free?
what kind of king would call himself
the servant of every nation?
the kind of king who would die for you and me
