Seal - Kiss From A Rose Video and Lyrics




Kiss From A Rose by Seal, Music Video and Lyrics

Kiss From A Rose‘ was released in 1994 on the album ‘Seal 2′, the song is a timeless classic and was the theme tune for one of the Batman movies, ‘Batman Forever’.

It’s a huge ballad, it went on to become one of Seal’s biggest hits, winning Record of the Year as well as Album of the Year Grammys.

The song that evokes vivid images and emotions and descriptions (”Now that your rose is in bloom/A light hits the gloom on the grave”) that make you feel the passion in the song. It’s masterful. The album itself is masterful and after ten years, I still listen to it all the way through from time to time.

Listen to ‘Kiss From A Rose’ song here, this is a live performance video.

Seal - Kiss From A Rose Video and Lyrics

There used to be a greying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that’s the high and not the pill.
But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and
The light that you shine can be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
Ooh,
The more I get of you,
Stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the grave.
There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny.
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby?
But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the grave,
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the grave,
I’ve been kissed by a rose
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the grave,
…And if I should fall along the way
I’ve been kissed by a rose
…been kissed by a rose on the grave.
There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny, yeah
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby.
But did you know,
That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave.
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the grave.
Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave
Ooh, the more I get of you
Stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grave
Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the grave.

    It had been a while since I heard this song. Saturday night I couldn’t sleep, so I turned on the TV, flipped a few channels, and I watched and listened to this song with tear filled eyes. The lead singer is so passionate when he sings. AMAZING!!!

  4. Datrebor Says:

    I love this song but I have question is the lyric
    ‘A rose on the Gray’ or A rose on the Grave’? I have seen other sites with lyrics and they say Gray and on the show ‘Singing Bee’ this was on there and the contestant said ‘grave’ and got it wrong.
