Kiss of Fire – Georgia Gibbs

Lyrics

I touch your lips and all at once the sparks go flying
Those devil lips that know so well the art of lying
And though I see the danger, still the flame grows higher
I know I must surrender to your kiss of fire

Just like a torch, you set the soul within me burning
I must go on, I’m on this road of no returning
And though it burns me and it turns me into ashes
My whole world crashes without your kiss of fire

I can’t resist you, what good is there in trying
What good is there denying you’re all that I desire
Since first I kissed you my heart was yours completely
If I’m a slave, then it’s a slave I want to be
Don’t pity me, don’t pity me

Give me your lips, the lips you only let me borrow
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow
I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
Though it consumes me, your kiss of fire

Since first I kissed you my heart was yours completely
If I’m a slave, then it’s a slave I want to be
Don’t pity me, don’t pity me

Give me your lips, the lips you only let me borrow
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow
I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
Though it consumes me
Your kiss of fire

    1. Yes, Kiss of fire by Louis Armstrong is great. I love Wonder Wheel too, it’s kind of my favorite from his last movies, especially I struggle a little to love Cafe Society. I saw Wonder Wheel in Japan, with Japanese subtitles! Aï! Fortunately, I already saw it one time before on my computer with English subtitles as sometimes I lost some words with my weak English. Years ago, I saw Speilberg’s Hook in Greece, my English was even weaker than now, I couldn’t understand the dialogues and the subtitles were in Greek! What a nightmare!
