It Started with a Kiss

It Started with a Kiss
Back in the early 1980s there was a song about this theme and I recall it vividly, being just 14 years old and having a crush on an older guy it struck a chord. There I was staring out the window at the larger than life mountain as the sun set and thinking about unrequited love and as timing would have it, he drove past and waved out to me!
Hot Chocolates song It Started with A Kiss (Lyrics)
It started with a kiss
In the back row of the classroom
How could I resist
The aroma of your perfume
You and I were inseparable
It was love at first sight
You made me promise to marry you
I made you promise to be my wife
But you were only eight years old
And I had just about turned nine (just about turned nine)
I thought that life was always good
I thought you always would be mine 
Started with a kiss
Never thought it would come to this
It started with a kiss
I never thought it would come to this 
I remember every little thing
Like fighting in the playground
'Cause some good looking boys
Had started to hang around
That boy hurt me so bad
But I was happy 'cause you cried
Still I couldn't help but notice
That new distant look in your eyes
And then when you were sixteen
And I had just turned seventeen (just turned seventeen)
I couldn't hold on to your love
I couldn't hold on to my dream 
It started with a kiss
I never thought it would come to this
Started with a kiss
Never thought it would come to this 
You don't remember me, do you?
You don't remember me, do you?
Walking down the street
Came the star of my love story
And my heart began to beat so fast
So clear was my memory
I heard my voice cry out your name
And as she looked and looked away
I felt so hurt, I felt so small
It was all that I could say 
You don't remember me, do you?
You don't remember me, do you?
You don't remember me, do you?
You don't remember me, do you?
It started with a kiss
Never thought it would come to this
It started with a kiss, oh
Never thought it would come to this
