“Kiss Like Your Kiss”
Words and music by Lucinda Williams

There’ll never be a spring so perfect again
We’ll never see a yellow so rich
The grass will never be quite as green
And there’ll never be a kiss like your kiss

There will never be a summer so complete
We’ll never see a palette like this
Berries will never taste as sweet
There’ll never be a kiss like your kiss

There will never be an autumn so vivid and warm
So red, so golden, so crisp
Never see a color in aubergine
There’ll never be a kiss like your kiss

There’ll never be a winter quite so true
When the sky is painted with gifts
And there’ll never be a moon so full and blue
There will never be a kiss like your kiss

There’ll never be a kiss like your kiss
