Just a Kiss on the Cheek · 12 October 2003

It was just a look that you gave me from across the room
I just knew that I had to meet you real soon
We were just kids in a classroom but I knew right then
You’d be my woman and I’d be your man

It was just a word that you said I think it was “Hi”
You were saying it as I walked on by
I fell over my own feet I didn’t know what to say
I couldn’t believe that you said “Hi,” that day

It was just a touch on the hand as we walked side by side
But I knew right then that you’d be my bride
Your touch was electric my heart skipped a beat
I didn’t know it was love but I knew you were sweet

It was just a kiss on the cheek to end our first date
Dinner and a movie that I thought were great
It’s been twenty years now we still walk hand in hand
I’m so glad you decided that I’d be your man

Bridge:
     It was just the look that you gave me that said “How do you do?”
     The words, “Hello darlin’” to say “I’d like to meet you”
     A touch on the hand let me know that you liked me too
     It was just a kiss on the cheek that said, “I love you”

You told me one day that you knew it was me
That first day I saw you in Geometry
Our courtship was slow to make sure it was right
You sealed it with a kiss when you kissed me good night

I’ve thought lots about it since you told me your plan
It almost seems like I was just clay in your hand
But I’ve watched our three daughters do it to three young men
All I can do is shake my head again and again
