"To You I Bestow" as written by and Edmund Enright....
Well, you better not see me when you come back.
I could be sharin' someone else's pillow.
And my love for you is better than diamonds,
To you, ev'rything, I bestow.
And tomorrow I'll be dancing on my own,
And I'll need a kiss for my head that's achin'.
And I'll be a hungry dog without a bone,
hoping my place with you's not taken.

Kiss me and tell me it's not broken.
Kiss me and kiss me till I die.
See, I'll give you the stars from the bruised ev 'nin' sky
and a crown of jewels for your head, now,
for your head, now, for your head, now, for your head
One last night in bed for a time,
and two more wishes. and both are for thine.
And three guesses you're the angel's child,
and four hopes this love's not spoiled

Kiss me and tell me it's not broken.
Kiss me and kiss me till I die.
See, I'll give you the stars from the bruised ev 'nin' sky
and a crown of jewels for your head, now,
for your head, now, for your head, now, for your head now
If you come back, I'll take you to the garden,
we'll dance to an orchestra on the lawn.
And we'll roll in the foggy dew
and dance with the ghosts upon the dawn., on the dawn, on the dawn

(Then you'll) Kiss me and tell me it's not broken.
Kiss me and kiss me till I die.
See, I'll give you the stars from the bruised ev 'nin' sky
and a crown of jewels for your head, now,
for your head, now, for your head, now, for your head now
for your head, now, oh oh

    General CommentAhh! I love this song (especially it's on my favorite movie's soundtrack- Romeo + Juliet)! I think it's about a guy who is trying to make a vow with this girl saying that he will give her everything and that they will be together forever, like Romeo and Juliet.

    General CommentI didn't realise that it is from that soundtrack. I have the album that this song came from but it's a limited edition CD which I don't think you can buy anymore. It's very good but I don't know if Mundy is still making music or not. If anyone is interested in hearing the album send me an email, I can put it onto a minidisc for you or something.

    General CommentFor anyone who's interested, Mundy is still making music- his last album (24 Star Hotel*****) sold well in Ireland but I'm not sure if it's available outside the country, he released it independently after sony dropped him.

    General CommentIt appears when Romeo is speeding back into Verona after learning Juliet is "dead". You can only hear the haunting "oh oh" parts and it really fits.

    This is my most favourite song in the entire world, I heard it when I was 7 and I've still not stopped loving it :P

    It's a beautiful song about being in love...

    General CommentIt sounds like theyre broken up. He "could be sharing someone else's pillow" "If you come back.."
    Sounds like hes begging for the relationship to be fixed "Kiss me and tell me its not broken" Making a 1000 promises to win her back. A love song in a way I guess...
