Kiss Me Lyrics

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

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, 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 – Guitar Lesson

‘Kiss Me’ use a static chord for the verse, changing the extension from major to maj7, to dom7 and then back to maj7 again.

The chorus uses a standard progression although we start it from a slightly unusual point. This small change makes it feel new enough to be a hit.

Studying movements like this are what will enable you to write songs yourself.
