Kiss Me

Stephen Duffy, Tin Tin

About Kiss Me

"Kiss Me" is a song originally released in 1982 by the British band Tin Tin (sometimes written TinTin). The song was allegedly written within 24 hours after the band had signed a record deal with WEA Records. The single peaked at number 155 on the UK Singles Chart and was in 1983 released on Sire Records in the U. S., where it made the Billboard dance chart. The lead singer and guitarist in Tin Tin, Stephen Duffy, later re-recorded the song twice and released it as a solo single using the name of Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy. The first re-recording was released as a single only in the West Midlands region in 1984. Another version was recorded in late 1984 and released as a single on 25 February 1985. This version made its debut at number 22 in the UK singles chart and peaked at number 4 in March, selling more than 250,000 copies within three weeks and thus being certified silver. The chorus is based on a passage from the book Song of Songs. It was the last song to be played on BBC Radio 1s MW frequency in 1994, before the station became FM only.

In my young life I have received 
Callers as though they were Christmas Eve 
Disappointed and I don't know why? 
She gave me laughter and hope 
And a sock in the eye.

In my young life and I know something now.
I've never tried to create a wow
Wows are few frustration more common 
Now I can feel it in my soul
That's why I gave the come on...

Kiss me with your mouth 
Your love is better than wine 
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine? 

Faces fall before my feet
Like blood onto a clean white sheet 
When I grow old I won't forget
To innocence my only debt.

Wow I feel so fresh today
Barefoot in the snow to make love in the hay 
The stars are bright in the abyss
Now I can feel you in my arms 
I explode inside your kiss. 

Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?
