about

I wrote this song in honour of Jim Steinman after his recent passing. Here's to our patron saint of karaoke, the father, son, and holy spirit of the power ballad, who's words and music still show us we have a hell of a lot to learn about rock and roll!

lyrics

Your kiss is a time machine
Takes me back to that night
When we were seventeen
And the streetlights were out
There was only the trees
And the houses and sounds
There was you in my arms
There with me

Your kiss is a time machine
Takes me back so fast
It's still so vivid to me
Like we never left
That moment in time
When there was no one else
And no compromise

And no bills and no debts
And untold regrets
And such hard hard times
You never catch your breath
Some nights wide awake
By your side just trying
To get back to that place
If only in my mind when

There was you and me baby
Like a time machine
There was you and me baby
Like they've never seen
There was you and me baby
So much better than this
There was you and me baby
Right back with a kiss

There was you
There was you
There was you
There was you

Your kiss is a time machine
Takes me back to that night
When we were seventeen
And the streetlights were out
There was only the trees
And the houses and sounds
There was you in my arms
There with me

Your kiss is a time machine
Takes me back so fast
It's still so vivid to me
Like we never left
That moment in time
When there was no one else
And no choosing sides

And no words we said
That we can't unsay
And no way to know
Where we'd be today
Then I see you smile
Even just a crack
And it's almost like
We could slip right back when

There was you and me baby
Like a time machine
There was you and me baby
Like they've never seen
There was you and me baby
So much better than this
There was you and me baby
Right back with a kiss

There was you
Like a time machine
There was you
Like they've never seen
There was you
So much better than this
There was you and me baby
Right back with a kiss

There was you
Just frozen in time
There was you
Forever mine
There was you
Like they've never seen
There was you
Like a time machine

There was you
There was you
There was you
There was you
There was you
There was you
There was you
