Lyrics:


The woman of moon
Flew into my room last night...
She tortured my body
And made me feel sorry
Though I thought I was right

Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of...

Light my candle,
Hold my hand,
I'm grinning like a fool...
Spread your love around my head
I'm feeling rather cruel...

Alone in the dance hall
We spoke of her next incarnation...
I asked what it took
And she gave me a look
Needing no explanation

Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of...

Lightning flashing,
Thunder crashing,
Love is such a thrill...
Re-arrange my holidays
And move in for the kill...

She gives me the kiss of light
And all my mirrors are windows...
She gives me the kiss of light
And I don't know where the time goes...

I'm down on my knees,
It's easy to see
How everything has it's place...
And mine is to be
Her taste of the sea
This morning...

We walked through the towers,
The sky fell in showers,
We caused a sensation...
The future was changed
As we stood in the rain
At the back of the station...

Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light
Gave me the kiss of light...


Words and music by Bill Nelson.
