about

Kathryn wrote this song after her first full length tour in Holland, Belgium and France. Ruminating on the European tradition of greeting people by kissing on the cheek, Kathryn reflects upon themes of travel, cultural exchange, love, and transformation in the lyrics. By the end of her tour, she realized that each country kissed a different number of times and remarked that in her road-weary condition it felt as though she knew where she was based on the kisses she received.

lyrics

I'll admit, it's time to leave
I needed away from here
It was great my dear but I have to run

So fun, we'll do it again
A kiss on the cheek that how they know where we've been
We've been far far away, couldn't we stay

Teach me that lesson, just one more time
I've almost got the answer, almost memorize the line
Ask me the question, don't let me lie
I'll tell you the truth, I'll look you straight in the eye
At least I'll try

There's time, there's time to sit with it all
I am not ready to fall
I wanna fly, and catch a piece of that sky
I wanna fly

From this height, there's no cars there's no crowds
It's hard to tell the mountains from the clouds
a certain moment of peace, before we release

Teach me that lesson, just one more time
I've almost got the answer, almost memorize the line
Ask me the question, don't let me lie
I'll tell you the truth, I'll look you straight in the eye
At least I'll try

The Lasses Amsterdam, Netherlands

Margot and Sophie met at Victor Lacken's Wednesday session in Mulligans and found out their voices went very well together: Margots husky alto and Sophies emotive soprano complement each other rather nicely. Irish traditionals and folkie standards brought to the stage or the street in tender harmony! ... more
