A Kiss To Send Us Off By Incubus

Here is why I identify with this song.  I think the person that he's with in this song, well she wants to end the relationship and he's telling her to remember their dreams together, those endeavors, and all the things they've been through together. The stars lyric "We watch these stars shine," in the first verse is pretty. The stars in their sky, the personal memories it could mean, the grand beauty of their relationship of what they used to have together, they watch from afar now, as watching isn't actually being involved, and he is missing the happiness that they once shared.  He wants it back but he can’t figure out how to get it back.   I think it could also mean the stars are shining lights of the love between them. The sky above represents that there's a space, there's another side to where this could go, and he's trying to get that through to her.. That the only way out isn't to end it. The cloud they're living on could mean the bad things in the relationship, living on possibly meaning these torrential downpours of whatever it may be have been going on for while. The whole kiss thing is a reminder. A kiss would be more than a kiss, and it would send them off into a sky of new beginnings, rather than an end. Again, kill your doubts. She has doubts in the relationship, maybe from insecurities or words said in vain because of the confidence reference. He has confidence in their relationship. He doesn't want to hear anymore convictions of the end, as it would be, ending the relationship, coming from her words, he just wants that kiss to make things right. I LOVE  the kite reference. Things begin to get tremendously exciting in the bridge. Basically saying it's the two of them, simple and beautiful, there he is, there she is, and the kite is a last attempt to make amends. Because what exactly is a kite. A sort of hopeful endeavor, like a last chance, small and feeble, fragile on a string, goes into the sky, trying to regain what they used to have. They're connected, and her intentions threaten the wire being broken. Suddenly the realms of what they both know become statically charged, the storm maybe being a conflict. Or, it's a final crescendo to his plea. Here I am, there you are, collide! I think that says it all.  It is a miraculous song and I believe that his plea led to their reconciliation.  I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! 

THE LYRICS:

Meet me here
On November 11th, come alone
Bring your mouth
And selective irreverence, we'll see stars just...

One! More! Tongue!
Kiss before the sky it falls
Out! From!
This cloud we're hovering on!

A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!

Kill your doubt
With the coldest of weapons, confidence.
No more words
Just the sound of resplendent tongues colliding.

One! More! Tongue!
Kiss before the sky it falls
Out! From!
This cloud we're hovering on!

A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!

Here I am, there you are
On a wire connecting our hearts
There's a string, that is tied to a kite

There's a storm in the sky
Now the clouds become electric
There you are, here I am
Could I Have a kiss to send us off?
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!

A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!
A kiss to send us off!

I noticed that my box looked f*cked up but I didn't know why. Is that on purpose? I thought it was because I dropped my computer earlier today.

:)

True, I will sometimes give it another try if I hear it played again.

Thanks

I LOVE THIS SONG and it means so much to me.
