Kiss the Dirt (Falling Down the Mountain)

INXS



~~*~~




Playing in the dirt

We find the seeds of doubt

Don't water them with your tears

Don't think about all the years

You'd rather be without


Eden lets me in

I find the seeds of love

And climb upon the highwire

I kiss and tell all my fears


Falling down the mountain

End up kissin' dirt

Look a little closer

Sometimes it wouldn't hurt


Playing in the dirt

We find the seeds of fun

And we scream like alley cats

Tearing down what we attack

To prove that we are one


Cutting through the night

We find the seeds of lust

And lose our minds on one intent

These passions never seem to end


Fallin' down the mountain

End up kissin' dirt

Look a little closer

Sometimes it wouldn't hurt


You know it wouldn't hurt


Fallin' down the mountain

End up getting hurt

Look a little closer

Sometimes it wouldn't hurt, yeah

Get up, get up, get up

Get up to the top, yeah


I'm fallin' down the mountain

End up kissin' dirt, oh yeah

I'm falling, falling ...


Cutting through the night

We find the seeds of lust

And lose our minds on one intent

These passions never seem to end


Fallin' down the mountain

End up kissin' dirt

Look a little closer

Sometimes it wouldn't hurt

One of the sexiest rock songs ever,

in my opinion.

It's a flirtatious warning, really:

You're gonna kiss the dirt.

You're gonna fall down the mountain.

It's gonna hurt.


Michael Hutchence was a remarkable, creative talent,

and we all are a little less without him.
