A kiss could've killed me
If it were not for the rain
A kiss could've killed me
Baby if it were not for the rain

And I had a feeling it was coming on
And I felt it coming
For so long
If I'm to be the fool
Then so it be

This fool can die now
With a heart that's soaked
How
How had it coming
For so long

And darling take my hand
And lead me through the door
Let's kidnap each other
And start singing our song

My heart is charged now
Oh, it's dancing in my chest
And I fly when I walk now
From the spell in that kiss

Cause I ...

It could've
It could've killed me
It could've killed me
If it were not for the rain

Oh darling let me dream
Cause somewhere inside me
I have been waiting
So patiently
For you

So don't you break
Don't break my dream
Don't break my dream

Let the rain exalt us
As the night draws in
Winds howl around us
As we begin
What a way to start a fire
Broken with the break of day

A kiss could have killed me
If it were not for rain

And I have a feeling it's coming on
And I felt it coming on
for so long

And oh it could've
It could've killed me
It could've killed me
If it were not for the rain

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. I love the duet of Scout Niblett and Will Oldham. I'm a huge Bonnie "Prince" Billy fan.

    To me this song is about a couple of friends that both have feelings for each other. Their is a built up of love turns to passion, leading to their first kiss. This is about true love.

    General CommentThat one moment, the moment you put your heart out on the chopping block to see what happens. It could kill you. It could. Or it could be magical. Only one way to find out, cowboy. One way. Kiss her, man, just kiss her.

    I did it. Now we're getting married. I love this lady and now this'll be our song for the rest of our lives. But it could have killed me.
