Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
I'll wear those shoes and you 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 down by the broken tree house
Swing me upon its hanging tire
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

    General Commenti first saw this live at warped tour, the cincinnati show. great performance.

    It's mighty obvious what it means, a girl (or in this case a boy) dreaming about a kiss he longs for. He/she wants to be kissed anywhere (as in location, not on the body pervs)

    He/she's imagining how great it'll be (strike up the band and make the fireflies dance is a reference to the popular "knight in shining armor" dance or ball, where the band is playing as everyone wathes the one couple kiss, fireflies being the sourse of light, flying around making the place a dim-litted orgy of kissing).

    Common sense people, really.

    This song is so romantic, love the lyrics. Like um, emo80 said about what's about. So cute, romantic, beautiful lyrics. (Yes, I know they didn't write it) Dreaming about the kiss they long for!! Amazing :) so meaningful and I guess it really can relate to people, ya know? Loooove :)
