Kiss of Fire
Hugh Laurie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Con este tango que es burlón y compadrito,
Se ató dos alas la ambición de mi suburbio.
Con este tango nació el tango y como un grito
Salió del sórdido barrial buscando el cielo.
Conjuro extraño de un amor hecho cadencia
Que abrió caminos sin más ley que su esperanza,
Mezcla de rabia, de dolor, de fe, de ausencia
Llorando en la inocencia de un ritmo juguetón.

Por tu milagro de notas agoreras
Nacieron sin pensarlo las paicas y las grelas,
Luna en los charcos, canyengue en las caderas
Y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer

I touch your lips and all at once the sparks go flying
Those devil lips that know so well the art of lying
And though I see the danger, still the flame grows higher
I know I must surrender to your kiss of fire
Just like a torch, you set the soul within me burning
I must go on, I'm on this road of no returning
And though it burns me and it turns me into ashes
My whole world crashes without your kiss of fire

Por tu milagro de notas agoreras
Nacieron sin pensarlo las paicas y las grelas,
Luna en los charcos, canyengue en las caderas
Y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer

I can't resist you, what good is there in trying?
What good is there denying you're all that I desire?
Since first I kissed you my heart was yours completely
If I'm a slave, then it's a slave I want to be

Don't pity me, don't pity me
Don't pity me, don't pity me

Give me your lips, the lips you only let me borrow
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow




I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
Though it consumes me, the kiss of fire!

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the song Kiss of Fire by Hugh Laurie can be interpreted as a love letter to the power of tango music to capture the heart and soul. The song describes the birth of the tango in the sordid barrios of Buenos Aires, where it arose as a conjuro extraño, a strange incantation that mixed together emotions of anger, pain, faith, and absence into a playful rhythm that could make even the most humble dancer feel the sway of the moonlit night.


The lyrics then shift their focus to the present moment, with the singer reflecting on the intense attraction he feels for his lover. He compares her to a torch that sets his soul on fire, and acknowledges that he cannot resist her, despite the danger and potential for heartbreak that being with her entails. He begs for her kiss of fire, knowing that it will consume him completely, but unable to resist the pull of desire.


Overall, the song is a tribute to the power of passion and music to transport us beyond our mundane lives, and to the seductive allure of danger and desire when it comes to matters of the heart. It invites the listener to surrender to the spell of the tango, and to let themselves be consumed by the flame of desire.

Don't pity me, don't pity me
Do not pity me, do not pity me.

Give me your lips, the lips that you only lend me,


Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow.


I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
I know that I must have your kiss even if it dooms me.


Though it consumes me, the kiss of fire!
Although it consumes me, the kiss of fire!

Con este tango que es burlón y compadrito,
se ató dos alas la ambición de mi suburbio.
Con este tango nació el tango y como un grito
salió del sórdido barrial buscando el cielo.
Conjuro extraño de un amor hecho cadencia
que abrió caminos sin más ley que su esperanza,
mezcla de rabia, de dolor, de fe, de ausencia
llorando en la inocencia de un ritmo juguetón.

Por tu milagro de notas agoreras
nacieron sin pensarlo las paicas y las grelas,
luna en los charcos, canyengue en las caderas
y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer...

I touch your lips and all at once the sparks go flying
Those devil lips that know so well the art of lying
And though I see the danger, still the flame grows higher
I know I must surrender to your kiss of fire
Just like a torch, you set the soul within me burning
I must go on, I'm on this road of no returning
And though it burns me and it turns me into ashes
My whole world crashes without your kiss of fire

Por tu milagro de notas agoreras
nacieron sin pensarlo las paicas y las grelas,
luna en los charcos, canyengue en las caderas
y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer...

I can't resist you, what good is there in trying?
What good is there denying you're all that I desire?
Since first I kissed you my heart was yours completely
If I'm a slave, then it's a slave I want to be

Don't pity me, don't pity me [x2]

Give me your lips, the lips you only let me borrow
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow
I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
Consumes me, the kiss of fire!

This is a wonderfully playful duet! The woman's voice is passionate and the guys is full of sway. Great combo, the accordion totally helps >.<
