"He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss)" as written by and Gerry/king Goffin....
He hit me
And it felt like a kiss.
He hit me
But it didn't hurt me.

He couldn't stand to hear me say
That I'd been with someone new,
And when I told him I had been untrue

He hit me
And it felt like a kiss.
He hit me
And I knew he loved me.

If he didn't care for me that way
I could have never made him mad
But he hit me,
And I was glad.

Yes, he hit me
And it felt like a kiss.
He hit me
And I knew I loved him.
And then he took me in his arms
With all the tenderness there is,
And he kissed me,
And he made me his.

    My OpinionEven though domestic violence is never alright. This song is fucked.

    General CommentBeautiful, beautiful song but quite disturbing lyrics. Which makes the song even more beautiful in some twisted way for me. Not in the same twisted way, however.
