Don't Kiss Me



Don't Kiss Me

When I need a friend
Lend your ear
Don't just tell me
What I long to hear

When my hope is fading
And my heart does ache
Don't feed me lines
While I lay awake

When the sun is hidden
And the nights are long
Don't wipe my tears
Nor play my song

When it's God I need
And my faith is weak
Don't kiss me
For it's Him I seek

When the one who loves me
Draws me near
Don't kiss me
Or call me dear

When I am renewed
And I see the light
Don't kiss me
Though you wish you might

A kiss is like
A crashing wave
Please don't kiss me
I must be brave
