Songs of the Mongoose Tribe - 1. Bitter Kiss of Life - Soul Pineapple

This song is dedicated to my good friend, Day Joo-Hwan.

Down in the depths, my soul wanders and waits,

Aching and searching, and tempting the fates.

I’ve long held myself back,

From the things that I lack,

Fearing my memories would come true again,

That anger and pain would return as my friend,

And leave my soul bitterly cursing my state.

 

The bitter kiss of life,

Doesn’t seem bitter at all,

When your lips meet mine.

The sweet kiss of life,

Doesn’t compare at all,

When our bodies entwine.

 

I never suspected I would feel this way now,

Wiping the blood and the sweat from my brow.

I’ve come a long way,

Just to hear someone say,

They wish they could always have me around.

And upon this most barren of ground,

We have a future to plant and to plow.

 

The more bitterness I found,

The more life sought to sweeten,

You kissed all my wounds,

Though I’d been badly beaten.

For you I’d risk the pain,

I’d do it all over again.

Because life doesn’t seem as bitter,

When I’m talking with you.

 

The bitter kiss of life,

Doesn’t seem bitter at all,

When your lips meet mine.

The sweet kiss of life,

Doesn’t compare at all,

When our bodies entwine.

 

The bitter kiss of life,

Doesn’t seem bitter at all,

When your lips meet mine.

The sweet kiss of life,

Doesn’t compare at all,

When our souls intertwine.

That was beautifully written... :D

 

A kiss can be a lot of things and can do a lot of things. I have never experienced any bitter kiss or any sweeter one. Now I know why. I think or may be strongly believe, it links with the person we are sharing... :)

 

Nice song. But just we love you to compose and sing for us... ;)

Hah! If I could compose music or sing, I'd already be on YouTube with these. :) Maybe I'll find a guy who can and share one of those kisses with them? :)

 

Thank you for the review! :D
