"Lips Like Sugar" by Echo & the Bunnymen (Echo & the Bunnymen, 1987)

Dizzy After Her Kiss: Digital Art by Shawn Michel de Montaigne





Lips Like Sugar

Echo & the Bunnymen





~~*~~





She floats like a swan

Grace on the water

Lips like sugar

Lips like sugar


Just when you think you've caught her

She glides across the water

She calls for you tonight

To share this moonlight


You'll flow down her river

She'll ask you and you'll give her

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses


She knows what she knows

I know what she's thinking

Sugar kisses

Sugar kisses


Just when you think she's yours

She's flown to other shores

To laugh at how you break

And melt into this lake


You'll flow down her river

But you'll never give her

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses


She'll be my mirror

Reflect what I am

A loser and a winner

The king of Siam


And my Siamese twin

Alone on the river

Mirror kisses

Mirror kisses!


Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses


Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses


Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses



~~*~~

For me, this ranks as one of the sexiest

rock n' roll songs ever written.


Of all the human acts of physical affection,

kissing is, hands down (or lips open), my very favorite.

There isn't another act that is quite as intimate,

and yet so innocent.

This song beautifully captures both:

that sense of intense sexiness, of intimacy,

and yet of youthful innocence.

I can't help but think of the best kisses

I've enjoyed any time I hear it.
