Soul Kiss Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Every time I turn the TV on
It's always just the same old tease
See everything you ever dreamed
That you could want
But nothing that you need

And every gorgeous girl in Hollywood
Could soon be mine
I got the money and from time to time
I have the time

Get the image right
Party through the night
But as it's getting light
I'm still waiting for a soul kiss

Do I have to say, "Please"
But it's always just a near miss
It's just a big tease
Is it always gonna be like this
When you're lookin' for a soul kiss?

And all the record stores are filled with pretty boys
And their material girls
And even students vote for actors
Then they tell you it's a safer world

And all the hippies work for IBM
Or take control
Of faster ways to sell you food
That isn't really whole

I like to wine and dine
You sure are lookin' fine
And we could kill some time
But I'm waiting for a soul kiss

I've even said, "Please"
But it's always just a near miss
It's just a big tease
Is it always gonna be like this
When you're lookin' for a soul kiss?

I'm still waiting for a soul kiss
Do I have to say, "Please?"
But I'm always just a near miss
It's just a big tease
Is it always gonna be like this
When you're lookin' for a soul kiss?
