Kiss me (Sixpence None The Richer)

Kiss me
Activity Put in Order
Activity Put in Order

The most famous song from this group, from the soundtrack of the movie "She's all that", scenes from which we can see on this video. Although released in 1977, this was the most-played radio song in 1999 in 11 different countries, including Canada, UK, Australia, Japan and Israel.

This is how their vocalist, Leigh Nash, described the origin of the band's name on the Late Show with David Letterman:

"It comes from a book by C. S. Lewis called Mere Christianity. A little boy asks his father if he can get a sixpence—a very small amount of English currency—to go and get a gift for his father. The father gladly accepts the gift and he's really happy with it, but he also realizes that he's not any richer for the transaction. C.S. Lewis was comparing that to his belief that God has given him, and us, the gifts that we possess, and to serve Him the way we should, we should do it humbly—realizing how we got the gifts in the first place".

Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Silver moon's sparkling
Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
So kiss me
Lift your open hand
 
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Lift your open hand
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Swing me upon its hanging tyre
So kiss me
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
 
Kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me
So kiss me
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
So kiss me
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
So kiss me
Lift your open hand
