Kiss Me
Sixpence None the Richer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Kiss me, out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, (swing, swing) swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me, (kiss me) down by the broken tree house
Swing me, (swing me) upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, (bring, bring) bring your flowered hat
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

So kiss me
So kiss me
So kiss me

My girlfriend back in the 90s got me into music like this. We ended our relationship, then lost contact. I recently learned she passed away. Whenever I hear this I think of the fond memories and how different I’d be without ever hearing this.

@arribaficationwineho32

Sad for you. It is poignant for me too

@dianarodriguez8719

Sorry for your loss ❤

@juancastillotorres7711

I'm sorry for you. It's a sad story but at least she left her legacy to you.
