first kiss

song: gypsy rose lee
artist: the distillers

this is one of my favorite songs of all time, by one of my favorite bands. the first time i heard it, i'd just met this girl, and i'd really fallen for her. too bad she lived about an hour away. she burned me a copy of the cd and i listened to it every night. i fell in love with the distillers. one night i was lying on my bed singing along to this song, and i thought i heard her voice singing to me, i thought i could smell her perfume...i looked over at the door and she smiled at me.
"suprise."
she kissed me. she was the first girl i ever kissed. we held each other the rest of the night. she moved to oregon a few weeks later. i only knew her a few months, but she changed my life forever.
when i see you lay down
under pink laquered skies
baby ill give you something
thatll shut your eyes
to this mess
when i love you baby
i mean it more than just the whole world
and when i take a picture thats instant
lost tonight oh baby it burns

i said i remember it so i saw your eyes
go through the tunnel and i remember
australian sun i was eight years old
you were marilyn monroe
oh you gotta take it oh you take it on playing backyard
blues, blacktart stuck up in their jaw
i can nail ill nail this on
oh she ate the whole world
break it down

oh i've tasted i've tasted too oh too many nights
lost in space i remember kneeling down
oh my knees caught in the ground

when i love you baby
i mean it more than just the whole world
and when i saw gypsy rose
gypsy rose she rose to me

i remember a rolling stone
oh rolling on down through your bones
oh ya gotta save you gotta save your soul well
she ate the whole world

and when i love you baby
i mean it more than just the whole world
and when i saw gypsy rose gypsy rose she rose to me
baby i love you baby
i mean it more than just the whole world
and yeah baby i know your sin i know your sin i know your wings
