Ryan Adams & The Cardinals - Kisses Start Wars Lyrics

Appears on:  III/IV

First things first
Straight out of the box
It's time to open your presents, baby
It's a thimble full of light and nope, it's not much

This one is mine
I keep it with me all the time like a crutch
But something ancient passed down from my father
Something that nobody can touch

A kiss away from sea and the stars
In the night when your home is on the way
On the way or in between the bars
And those kisses, those kisses, they're lost

But, ooh
Don't worry, baby
It's not you
This can't be as crazy
And these kisses start the war

I got a taste of sleeping
Wreck like junkies eight o'clock
Like drunks with all their missin' cigarettes
And the prophets in schools and black dull windows

Artificial flowers
And TV remote controls, I get lost
Things change, people don't
People don't, things change, no

A kiss away from sea and the stars
Even when I think all is underway
On the way or in between the bars
And those kisses, those kisses, they're lost

But, ooh
Don't worry, baby
It's not you
This can't be as crazy

Oh, don't
Don't worry, baby
It's not you
This can't be as crazy
Damn, these kisses start the wars
These kisses start the wars
