Cardigans, The - And Then You Kissed Me Lyrics




Man I’ve had a few
But they wouldn’t quit blow me like you
You gave me your name and sight
With a halo around my eye
And it hits me like never before
That love is a powerful force
Yes it struck me that love is as bored
So I pushed you a little bit more

Love, you’re news to me
You’re a little bit more then I thought you’d be
A mow in my well fed lawn
You’re a nightmare beating the dawn
Oh it hits me like never before
That love is a powerful force
Yes it struck me that love is a sport
So I pushed you a little bit more

Blue, blue, black and blue
Red blood sticks like glue
True love is cruel love
Red blood say power fuel
Sweet love tasty blood
My heart overfloods

Oh you hit me
Yeah you hit me really hard
Man you hit me
Yeah you hit me right in the heart
Lord I’ve had my deal
But I never quite knew how it feels
When love makes you wake up soar
With fists that are ready for more

And it hits me that love is a game
Like in war no one can be blamed
Yes it struck me that love is a sport
So I pushed you a little bit more

Blue, blue, black and blue
Red blood sticks like glue
True love is cruel love
Red blood say power fuel
Sweet love tasty blood
My heart overfloods

Man you hit me
Yeah you hit me really hard
Baby you hit me
Yeah you punched me right in the heart
And then you kissed me
And then you hit me

Oh you hold me with your violent heartbeat at night
Oh you strike me with your silence baby tonight
Why you hold me with your violence baby come hit me
You hold me with your violent heartbeat

  11. Michael Meyer

    What amazing Nina

  12. Sameer Love

    They’re comparing this song to Shallow - Lady Gaga, I don’t think it sounds alike.

    Sameer Love

    IVO Muzik IVO Muzik Lmao a little butthurt bitch aren’t you? There are literally articles saying that the people who made this shitty song, saying that shallow stole samples from it.

    Sameer Love

    IVO Muzik remember, you chose to reply to this.

  13. faaaduma

    I adore her voice🙂👌

  14. fernando perdomo

    Shallow from “A Star Is Born” borrows the chords and melody from the verses of this song. I just realized it... and I am pretty mad.

  15. Peter Robinson

    Beautiful song Beautiful woman just perfection x

  16. Garou Gorille

    A star is born?

    Ian Keegan

    Garou Gorille I literally just googled the words “hit me like never before” because I knew I’d heard the same chord and vocal progression in this song.

    I just didn’t couldn’t remember who sang it!!! Still prefer this.

  17. Mr Schmeltz

    This album's message is about a lot of these painful issues. I actually found one that's closer to mine done in the same type of video that starts the album. When I heard this for the first time I froze. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TJKceSPNfc

    Mr Schmeltz

    I been a hardcore fan since 1996 do you understand.

  18. Luca R

    most beautiful girl in the world

  19. Jonathan Soares

    so much love...

  20. Gary InMarz

    nice and folky ,a great front Persson also

  21. ああ

    She is so cute

  22. Luca R

    for sure the man who can Kiss Nina is one of the luckyest men in the world.

  23. marina gelberg

    the cardigans, please come back! <3

  24. i'm nothing

    Nina 🖤...

  25. Família Nóbrega Reinaldo

    Wonderful song!!!!!

    rupiter2008

    Feminist nightmare 😅

  26. Jasmine Aguirre

    This song I dedicate to my ex Goth Paul.

  27. Wendi Treaven

    Blue eyes

  28. Benur Radio

    Dear Nina,

    Exterminator of Sweden tities here.

    You demand too much love, when I don't love you for more than 5 miliseconds you get sick and tired besides you want to throw it all away.

    Please look for Nino or crucify Tori in case you think everything I do is never good enough for you.

    I'm trying to find you, sleep with me one day.

    -R

  29. Benur Radio

    Dear Nina,

    Exterminator of Sweden tities here.

    You demand too much love, when I don't love you for more than 5 miliseconds you get sick and tired besides you want to throw it all away.

    Please look for Nino or crucify Tori in case you think everything I do is never good enough for you.

  30. Francisco Javier Cabrera Sequera

    Very nice song and the voice Nina is very beautiful.

  31. CONDUGAS SCZ

    buenisimo!!!

  32. Victoria Semenenko Real Life Victory

    I believe that truly dramatic story of my family explains perfectly the song lyrics...😢

  33. Victoria Semenenko Real Life Victory

    Oh, my, she looks so much alike to my sister as that idea of being hited in the heart. But too much literally as for me by the knife for a pregnant girl end of October 1998.

  34. David Navidad Maeso

    the door's reminiscence 01:45-02:00

  35. Rudy Wilson

    They have talent but must say.....they sound like everyone else.......sorry , but the 60's were the peak of rock....

    IrelandVonVicious

    You should hear the life album they put out. Was a serious throw back.

  36. harvest85

    Brilliant writing.

  37. Carleton

    ...this songs going to leave a mark...on me...

  38. Torontosaurus Rex

    Fuck! What a great group! Fantastic in every way.

  39. Elise Martin

    This song came to me at a desperate time in my life. I was in an abusive realationship. Thanks Nina x

  40. LANA PACINO

    Perfection
    Nina❤

  41. howdyday

    a very tragic song yet very good melodies

  42. Roman KFM

    Love this song.

  43. DUGGX

    MAJORCOOL!!!

  44. Steve2 Me

    I wish I had found this singer way back in time.

    Steve2 Me

    So many Questions in this song.

  45. Reneko Rodriguez

    Nina Persson! i love you!

  46. Anaku Rivera

    This song must be a single

  47. Fokosmok

    Love it.

  48. Bess1201

    I can see why victims of domestic violence interpret the song this way. But I understand it differently. For me it's about emotional violence, narcissism maybe, getting near and then striking an emotional blow, (like she sings, you hit me right in the heart, or , you strike me with your silence) getting away and staying silent, getting back etc.... Violence ins not restricted to physical violence.

    Elle St

    Bess1201 I agree 100%

  49. electronige

    And then we kissed ..

  50. Денис Князев

    Красавица и голос есть))

  51. laserbeam 002

    I love her dimples. They set her face off.

  52. jesse kast

    ouch, much love to all who have endured

  53. Kefko2306

    Atike ❤️

  54. csizsikpizsik

    Such an underrated song...

  55. Jeison Solorzano

    We do not know if it was a mistake or not.

  56. Denise Lohnn

    It's unmistakably about abuse because Dom Violence Centers use it as their theme song during DV month which is now - October.

  57. Bibibo Bobobo

    There's been a lot of disagrement about the meaning of the song. But let's agree that Nina's lyrics are genious. Perfect short stories. And she's not even a english native speaker. Much better than a lot of english speaking artists. She should get an award for her excellent writing skills. And let's enjoy this wonderful band.

    ausgebombit

    she is swedish. sweden is considered to be one of the best english speaking countries.

    Bibibo Bobobo

    ausgebombit yes, she/they are swedish. But that doesn't necessarily make you a good lyricist, even if you master the language. You can be a native speaker of a language but that doesn't make you a good writer. That's the point.

    Bjørn-Sondre Svensen

    I totally agree with you on that one because Nina's lyrics are GENIOUS and all her songs is the BEST in the world EVER and she's AMAZING and REALLY REALLY REALLY TALENTED and she has A REALLY REALLY BEAUTIFUL and UNIQUE voice that no other female singer has so Nina is UNIQUE and The Cardigans is the best rock band ever existed and all their songs is REALLY REALLY REALLY BEAUTIFUL. And The Cardigans is my absolute favorite rock band of all times.

  58. Elisa Viglio

    🎶💘

  59. David Mochen

    Has anybody noticed the melodic tribute to "And then I kissed her", by the Beach Boys, in the lines "And then you kissed me/And then you hit me"?

  60. John Gialanella jr

    Very nice song. Nina's voice is so pretty. As are many Swedish girls.

  61. Juan Antonio Duran Blazquez

    I didn´t know this song. I really like the singer sonority and tenderness, you can really feel the hurt feelings. 5 stars song for me. ;)

  62. Prometheus1st

    Sooo fucking sad.... I cried.

  63. tomas wellevit

    NIna du är såååå sygg.Hänförande..levande gudsbevis.

  64. Fiona Murphy

    Really hope people understand this is about domestic violence not a metaphor for passionate love

    Fiona Murphy

    @Frosted Butts It's not the artists interpretation it's what they actually meant when writing it...and my issue was that people in these abusive relationships often believe that they aren't in abusive relationships but 'passionate' ones hence why I pointed out that no this song isn't about passionate love but abuse. I think everyone interprets songs different as they should but on a topic as serious as this the mistaking of abuse for passion can't slide

    Luca Ujvári-Zsiga

    Lana Del Rey did everything for this missunderstanding

    Steve2 Me

    About to play this song, I'll get back to you about what I see in this song.

    Steve2 Me

    OMG,, you could be right, if I look away from what you think I see love.

    Richard Beneder

    Maybe its a combination of both. Sometimes you stay with someone who is NOT good for you. Just to make it work. This song is saying you can not try to love someone if you are not ready to get hurt.

  65. Kader Eda ERDAL

    Süper 👍

  66. Amir Jacob

    amazing... about 8 or so years I downloaded the song by a mistake and I really liked the way it sound, it just hit me to listen to this song a few years later and kind of warmth and nostalgia just took all over my body and heart especially her voice....

  67. Adriano Silva

    I really love this song... The best of Cardigans. Nina's voice is envolving... The powerful force of love.

    lorddiosliving

    +Adriano Silva whats the lead singer full name??

    SubeZero

    +lorddiosliving Nina perrson. with the double "R".

    lorddiosliving

    ah nina perrson ok i didn't know that

    Martsapso21

    @lorddiosliving That's a double S of course. Easy to remember since she is Swedish.

    lorddiosliving

    @Martsapso21 ok.. Cool

  68. jozefgnd

    She is so beauty...nice piano too

  69. Hans Sørensen

    This band is way too cool. Nina is perfection.

  70. arseniy

    she is beauty.

    Klasun Kuvat

    Nina Persson is much more than her looks. Give her some cerebral credit!

    Bjørn-Sondre Svensen

    Yes Nina Persson is really really BEAUTIFUL. And she's the absolutely BEST and the most TALENTED singer songwriter in the world EVER. And she has the most WONDERFUL voice EVER. And it's a shame that she is so underrated as she is because she REALLY REALLY DESERVES to be much more FAMOUS for all the BEAUTIFUL work she has done when she has written so many BEAUTIFUL songs since she started to writing songs for The Cardigans in the 90's. Because Nina Persson is my absolute favorite vocalist EVER and i will always love her for all the BEAUTIFUL songs that she has made. She is REALLY REALLY a LEGEND in the music world.

  71. tricky

    my soul just grew in to a beuatiful red rose and smells like a sour-sweet candy. life approached me again and the taste of my life is sooomuch better now with this song!

    tricky

    @MrUnit731 i am relaxed. life is comming through my ears and comming out through my soul as i am speaking with others, embracing them, encouraging them.. spreading the love everywhere, peace to you and your lovely family!

    MrUnit731

    My family's dead. But thanx anyway.

  77. Adam Haydec

    Say that you love me but back it up.

  78. tortolini47

    nice pictures

  79. garagerockermadrid

    The structure of this song gives you little by little until it delivers the whole emotional explosion. Pure art.

  80. guguso8

    Maravillosa canción!!!

  81. Herru Febian

    i hope you are okay there, your comment sounds abit personal

  82. TC Multimedia

    One word... wonderfull! Nice picture collection of Nina. And a very good song of The Cardigans.

  83. Ulrik Lohmann Haaning

    Frontwoman Nina Persson told The Independent on Sunday February 1, 2009 that this song concerning physical abuse is not autobiographical. She explained: "I'm lucky, I've never been in a violent relationship, so that song wasn't autobiographical. But the subject, that whole kind of thing... it fascinates me."

  84. Frank Tilsdale

    Wow...amazing...thanks for sharing!

  85. Alejandra Noreña

    i cry because i have the flu :'(

  86. MrYounes75

    absolutely beautiful, thank you for video man

  87. Vincent Wang

    The vioce from the god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. Franchie

    In Love With My Radio!

  89. FRANK BIONDI

    yepppppppp

  90. Cranberries23

    It is a metaphor. They are just identifying passionate love with violence imagery. That makes this song a very powerful one. :)

  91. scatcrank

    What a great song

  92. Loi7934

    (....) Yeah you hit me right in the heart..I love you, Miguel..Loi

  93. kiku
