Radio 58, side B, track 9: “Forever” by KISS

KISS - ForeverOh, KISS, I thought this song was great when I heard it on the radio.  And I still think it’s great.  I just have to pretend that it wasn’t you guys who sang it.  I don’t know what you guys were thinking, but just like the last song I heard by you (which was actually the first song I ever heard by you), it’s hard to listen to this one without knowing the context that you guys were performing this album sans your trademark makeup.  If I didn’t know that it was you singing this, you’d be this local bar band that I’d be super excited to hear that you made it big.  But that’s not who you were.  You were KISS, for goodness sake!  What’s with all this sensitive bullshit.  I mean, I like sensitive bullshit.  Love it, in fact.  But not from y’all.  And yet, for the first 15 years of my life, I thought KISS was a band known for their emotional love ballads.  Think about that for a moment, KISS.  While you do, I’m going to listen to this song again.

“Forever”

I gotta tell you what I’m feelin’ inside
I could lie to myself but it’s true

There’s no denyin’ when I look in your eyes
Girl, I’m out of my head over you

I lived so long believin’ all love is blind

But everything about you
Is telling me this time it’s forever

This time I know and there’s no doubt in my mind
Forever

Until my life is through
Girl, I’ll be loving you forever

I hear the echo of the promise I made
When you strong you can stand on your own

Those words grow distant as I look atcho face
No, I don’t wanna go it aloooone

I never thought I’d lay my heart on the line

But everything aboutchoo
Is telling me this time it’s forever

This time I know and there’s no doubt in my mind
Forever

Until my life is through
Girl, I’ll be loving you forever

Yeah (yeah)

<awesome KISS jam>

Ohhhhh, I see my future when I look in your eyes

It took your love to make my heart come alive

I lived my life believin’ all love is blind

But everything about you
Telling me this tiiiiiiiime

It’s forever

This time I know and there’s no doubt in my mind
Forever

Until my life is through
Girl, I’ll be loving you forever

Ohhhhh
It’s forever

This time I know and there’s no doubt in my mind
Forever

Until my life is through
Girl, I’ll be loving you forever

Yeeeah

  1. […] with y’all, but the music, not so much.  My only real taste of your music was the two songs I recorded off the radio as a kid, and that’s back when you were in your no make-up period, […]
