When French Girls Kiss

(unreleased song, 1985)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

She wears Temper Red Lipstick
That you touch in your dream every night
It's your head
Haunted by her
Guillotine in your lullaby

Your hands stained magenta
From the fruit
That she left on the vine
Other women just don't know how

Chorus:

When French girls kiss
You know life begins
When French girls kiss
We make love with our lips
Only French girls can
Be your death wish
'Cause French girls, French girls kiss
French girls, French girls kiss

Verse 2:

She wears Temper Red Lipstick
That you want to take off every time
Let her go
She's as free as a bird
as it soars into flight
Your tongue is your betrayer
as it burns from the taste of her wine

Chorus:

When French girls kiss
You know life begins
When French girls kiss
We make love with our lips
Only French girls can
Be your death wish
'Cause French girls, French girls kiss
French girls, French girls kiss
