about

"Hit me with a kiss" a song with a story behind it. In the nineties I went to Budapest. In a bar I met a Canadian soldier. He worked for the UN in Bosnia (that war was going on at that time) as a sniper. He and I drank a lot of beers and talked about his life. He missed his son and his wife. Since I am a pacifist I asked him how it felt killing people and earning a living by doing that. He did not like my questions...

Listen to the great production! I really like Martijns work on this song.

lyrics

Hit me with a kiss

I’m close to comfort with my task he said, when I asked
I want straight tonight, but I’m diverted all the time
Is that bad?

And when he hit me with his kiss
I tasted whiskey on my lips burning
Full of fire was he, who loved me

He’d hide in trees to oversee
the targets, hit on the liver or close to it
A figure filled his upper arm
A tattooed Calvin like his so
What a charm

But he kissed me with his fist,
I tasted teardrops on my lips burning
Full of fire was he, who undone me

His head’s at home, a heart o’ stone,
Said: live my life to ruine another one
Bought the sweet another shot
He dropped his guns for the drink was all he got

When he kissed me with his fist,
I tasted blood on my lips, turning,
Full of anger is he, full of hatred he’ll be,
he who learned how to kill me
