K.
Cigarettes After Sex Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I remember when I first noticed that you liked me back
We were sitting down in a restaurant waiting for the check
We had made love earlier that day with no strings attached
But I could tell that something had changed how you looked at me then

Kristen, come right back
I've been waiting for you
To slip back in bed
When you light the candle

And on the Lower East Side, you're dancing with me now
And I'm taking pictures of you with flowers on the wall
Think I like you best when you're dressed in black from head to toe
Think I like you best when you're just with me
And no one else

Kristen, come right back
I've been waiting for you
To slip back in bed
When you light the candle

And I'm kissing you lying in my room
Holding you until you fall asleep
And it's just as good as I knew it would be
Stay with me, I don't want you to leave

Kristen, come right back
I've been waiting for you




To slip back in bed
When you light the candle

[Verse 1]
I remember when I first noticed that you liked me back
We were sitting down in a restaurant, waiting for the check
We had made love earlier that day with no strings attached
But I could tell that something had changed, how you looked at me then

[Chorus]
Kristen, come right back
I've been waiting for you
To slip back in bed
When you light the candle
[Verse 2]
And on the Lower East Side, you're dancing with me now
And I'm taking pictures of you with flowers on the wall
Think I like you best when you're dressed in black from head to toe
Think I like you best when you're just with me and no one else

[Chorus]
Kristen, come right back
I've been waiting for you
To slip back in bed
When you light the candle

[Verse 3]
And I'm kissing you, lying in my room
Holding you until you fall asleep
And it's just as good as I knew it would be
Stay with me, I don't want you to leave

[Chorus]
Kristen, come right back
I've been waiting for you
To slip back in bed
When you light the candle.


maybe people wont understand how hurt you are
but music does.

I've been listening to Cigarettes After Sex for years but I just realized this, the best way to enjoy their songs is when you are all alone, maybe driving on a highway in a winter night, enjoying tea on a rainy afternoon or just lying on bed trying to fall asleep. It's about facing all your inner loneliness and moving forward.
