The Kiss

I think this song is so beautiful. I want to cry every time I hear it.

Love, risin’ from the mists
Promise me this and only this
Holy breath touchin’ me
Like a wind song
Sweet communion of a kiss
 
Sun, siftin’ thru the grey
Enter in, reach me with a ray
Silently swoopin’ down
Just to show me
How to give my heart away
 
And once a crystal choir
Appeared while I was sleepin’ and called my name
And when they came down nearer
Sayin’, “Dyin’ is done”
Then a new song was sung
Until somewhere we breathed as one
 
Stars, burstin’ in the sky
Hear the sad nova’s dyin’ cry
Shimmerin’ memory
Come and hold me
While you show me how to fly
 
Sun, siftin’ thru the grey
Enter in, reach me with a ray
Silently swoopin’ down
Just to show me
How to give my heart away
 
And lately sparklin’ hosts
Come fill my dreams descendin’ on fiery beams
I’ve seen ’em come clear downWhere our poor bodies lay
Soothe us gently and say
“Gonna wipe all your tears away”
 
Love risin’ from the mists
Promise me this and only this
Holy breath touchin’ me
Like a wind song
Sweet communion of a kiss
 
Judee Sill was talented and kind of tragic. You can learn more about her on The Lost Genius of Judee Sill on BBC Radio 4.

  1. Boots,
    I’d never heard of Judee…I just did a little research – Wow!

    • I know! Drugs, prostitution, church organist…. I’d never heard of her either until I was listening to a podcast that rebroadcast that BBC show. Her voice was so pretty that I looked her up next chance I got and I bought those first two albums they were talking about. It’s sad to know she had all that talent and just couldn’t get herself together.

      I hope you are doing well!!

        • Haha, worked and then went home. Also worked yesterday when they had the Zombie Walk, so no zombie pictures this year. I have been out of blog commission for a while, but I’m trickling back to life I think. I saw you had a couple new posts, so I have to catch up on yours!!
