"Kiss Me" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
The fire's dying out
All the embers have been spent
Outside on the street
Lovers hide in the shadows
You look at me
I look at you
There's only one thing
I want you to do

Kiss me
I want you to kiss me
Like a stranger once again
Kiss me like a stranger once again
I want to believe that our love's a mystery
I want to believe that our love's a sin
I want you to kiss me like a stranger once again

You wear the same kind of perfume
You wore when we met
I suppose there's something comforting in knowing what to expect
But when you brushed up against me
Before I knew your name
Everything was thrilling
'Cause nothing was the same

I want you to kiss me
I want you to kiss me
Like a stranger once again
Kiss me like a stranger once again

I want to believe our loves a mystery
I want to believe our loves a sin
Oh will you kiss me like a stranger once again
I want you to kiss me like a stranger
Kiss me like a stranger once again

    General CommentAmazing how a relationship can change. The same person can mean different things to you through time. He loves this woman, he knows her so well. But they've lost the excitement from their first meeting. It's sad, but true.

    General CommentA song about the challenge for any longlasting relationship: how to keep the thrill and passion? The thrill of love makes us feel alive, while the lack of it leads to anxieties about death and loneliness. An affair may be a solution, for the monogamist it is perhaps worth a try to kiss your partner ‘as a stranger’. An existencialist song; it seems to me one of the best on the new record.
