Kiss Me

If Jason and I had “a song”, in my opinion, it would be “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer. I’m not sure if he’d agree. Six years ago when we were trying to decide on a song for our wedding reception, we couldn’t agree and we ended up settling on one my mom suggested which, while sweet, had no personal significance. This song, on the other hand, was played in the climactic scene of the movie we saw on our first date. I can’t listen to it without all those feelings from 10 years ago being stirred up all over again.

Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I 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

“kiss me” by sixpence none the richer

Do others of you in relationships have “a song”? I’m curious if people still do that. If you’re willing to share, what is it and how did it become your song?

    my BF & i don’t really have a song. the most significant thing for us is tv shows – Futurama and The Simpsons! can’t really use those theme songs if we get married…i do have some songs i like that could be used, but all of our “common interest” music isn’t really appropriate…Muse…Nine Inch Nails…Audioslave…
