Kiss me like a comedian

Second single from my debut album How I’ll break your heart.
Out now on all major streaming platforms and Bandcamp.

 

We can’t love without hurting
We’re too knobbly and ragged
Elbows and knees in our empathy
Grand proclamations unravel like bad jokes
Left naked on stage for all to see

So kiss me like a comedian
You’ll laugh when I undress anyway
If we stop heckling our best intentions
Romance might have something to say

I’m your punchline, knock me out
We may find what love’s about
Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me like a comedian

Broken hearts’ bitter arrows
Fired with vengeance
Always fly truer than gentler words
Banged teeth and bit lips
Show better colours
Than re-touched faces
We present to the world

So kiss me like a chameleon
Show me how you disappear
If we keep losing our best intentions
This is sure to end in tears

I’m your disguise, lets hide out
Until we find what love’s about
Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me like a chameleon

I knew love was tough
But fuck me, it’s vicious
We’re masochists to
To find this delicious
Oh go then, just one more bite
