Hornsby, Bruce - Every Little Kiss Lyrics




Way out here, working on the docks
Everyone sees the long day through
Well, what would I do without the nights and the phone
And the chance just to talk to you

Whoa, what would I do now
Hey, just to talk to you
A thousand miles away, hey hey

What I wouldn't give for only one night
A little relief in sight
Someday when times weren't so tight

When the day goes down on water town
When the sun sinks low all around
That's when I know I, I need you now
Yes, you're what I miss, every little kiss
Every little one, every little one

Everybody here's a number, not a name
But I guess it's all right with me
As I sit alone, after a long day
In the absence of company

Whoa, I let my mind wander
A thousand miles away hey hey

What I wouldn't give for only one night
A little relief in sight
Someday when times weren't so tight

When the day goes down on water town
When the sun sinks low all around
That's when I know I, I need you now
Yes, you're what I miss, every little kiss
Every little one, every little one

What I wouldn't give for only one night
A little relief in sight
Someday when times weren't so tight
When the day goes down on water town
When the sun sinks low all around
That's when I know I, I need you now
Yes you're what I miss, every little kiss
Every little one, every little one

What I wouldn't give for only one night
A little relief in sight
Someday when times weren't so tight

When the day goes down on water town
When the sun sinks low all around
That's when I know I, I need you now
Yes, you're what I miss, every little kiss
Every little one, every little one

  10. Anthony

    The 80's seemed like much simpler times. People seemed more happy and life genuinely looked wholesome.

  11. Francisco Abellan Montenegro

    Animo VEVO son los mejores vídeos , estas rodeado de mucha envidia, sigue a tu ritmo, feliz año nuevo, no abandones

  12. Danny Simion

    Wow, Bruce Hornsby's take on Every Little Kiss has such an adult contemporary feel to it. Its totally different from country artist, Sara Evan's version of it which has a more fiddle country feel to it. Both versions I love them both!

  13. Jim Matherly

    This melody overwhelms me

  14. Tuffy Badass

    I didn't know Bruce sang this song! And it's not bad. I guess they're not a one hit wonder after all.

  15. COO415

    Music, just takes you back to, just about everything.

  16. Dicky Ball

    Who's listening to this right now?

  17. Dicky Ball

    Their best song.

    Classique intemporel. L'un des grands pianistes du rock dans le monde de la musique. Morceau de musique incroyable .. Cette chanson capture avec brio l'espoir, l'agitation, les rêves et les aspirations d'une époque révolue .. Possédant un style aéré et nonchalant qui dément ses dons techniques, le pianiste Bruce Hornsby écrit des chansons puissantes du cœur qui touchent à plusieurs traditions distinctement américaines: pop, jazz, bluegrass et soul des années 60. Il a travaillé pendant un certain temps en tant que joueur de studio et auteur-compositeur, et a eu son premier succès en 1986 avec l'émouvant et philosophique "The Way It Is".

  19. Patrick O'Donnell

    There should be a piano in every bar and someone to play it.

  20. Eric Vo

    I miss my old life

  21. Earl Sullivan

    I love it ..

  22. djeschke1

    damn these guys were good

  23. 3bar

    528 people have never been kissed.

  24. Daniel Johnston

    Listening to this song is like when you first wake up in the morning, and get up, and get going. Starts off slow, picks up tempo, then really gets going! Like when you get your first cup of coffee down! Now your movin!

  25. Channel 28

    This is my very favorite song, ever.

  26. James Kendall

    Boston's about 2500 miles east of LA. Cheaper to take a plane
    from lax out to Logan, in case anyone wants to get back to Watertown.
    Another snowy night out there. Citgo's owned by Venezuela.

  27. gnuumyn

    Raising a glass to you, Luthien. Rest in peace.

  28. Mark Andrews

    So, let me get this straight: "Every Little Kiss" was relegated to be the third single to come off Ol' Spider-Fingers' debut album and got little respect from radio audiences at the time. Does that tell anyone how spoiled we were in 1986? This is a truly great piece of music! (I just wish I didn't have to worry about what happened to the poor little runaway girl.)

  29. James Kendall

    I found out about Bruce Hornsby because his band opened for the Grateful Dead.
    I'm a genetic engineer trying to make pigs fly. A thousand miles away, not so far.
    Is this too much to ask? Watertown's in Massachussets near Boston to me. Not within
    the range of the pigs I'm imagining. 737s are fine planes if they'd take that electronic
    jive out of them. Land in Logan and lose my own luggage thank you.
    Charles river is where I might be found in case I turn up missing.
    Boeing is a crud aircraft corporation from Seattle that doesn't care.
    Hear a number, not a name. Sun sinks earlier in the day out there.

  30. Jeff G

    Old Truck Check! Music Check! Almost ready for that road trip just missing one small detail...

  31. Mike Hoff

    Bruce!!! Hookahville fans want you back so much!!!!!!!

    Mike Hoff

    We need your love lights

  32. USAF DIRT BOYZ

    It is funny....a balding guy playing piano in his mid thirties would never make it today.....it is a shame......but the kids today get what they deserve....musical shit.....

  33. Richard im

    Happy birthday Bruce. ..

  34. Ahoohi

    Dont bash 2020 music ppl.Lets just agree they have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to go before they sound as good as this stuff.

  35. Shakira Charriez

    This is real music. We do not have real music anymore. That is so awful. 🎹❤️❤️🤗🤗

  36. p. s.

    this whole album is one of my favorite things to listen to during the late fall/early winter season when the sunsets are pale and clear and there’s just a lot to reminisce on.

  37. Relaxo Relaxo

    Thirty three years later and that piano intro still gets me every damn time.

    Rob & Sarah Middleton

    Yes, It just takes me back and I LOVE it

  38. doneins

    Perfect music for a gillette commercial.

  39. amkhan68

    Hmmm..Whatta I wouldn't give for only one night......
    A little relief inside.....
    and as for tonight I know why I need you now
    Awesome heart wrenching lyrics

  40. rpm297

    Love this song, but the video's a bit... miss-shot. With words in the song like Watertown, and workin' on the docks, I kinda expect to see... water, a harbor, a river, a bay, maybe a boat or freighter. Nope, we're driving casually through in the midwest somewhere, beautiful scenery anyway. Did you listen to the before you shot? I saw a few workers loading stuff, so they got that right.

  41. Roy Stalin

    good song to listen to while driving. sounds like pure Americana.

  42. Honey Badger

    Thank u

  43. Jaxon Claw

    This is a FREAKING EDITED version! I was all ready for Bruce's killer piano solo in this piece, and they cut it out! Pity they had to chop out the solo :(

  44. Jake Phillips

    That’s Cat’s mom

  45. StonyRC

    "The Way It Is" remains one of the finest albums ever made. Every track has a link to my life with my wife of 25 years.

    Whoa, what would I do now?
    Hey, just to talk to you
    A thousand miles away, hey hey

    What I wouldn't give for only one night
    A little relief in sight
    Someday when times weren't so tight

    When the day goes down on the water town
    When the sun sinks low all around
    Is when I know I, I need you now
    Yes, you're what I miss, every little kiss
    Every little one, every little one

    Everybody here's a number, not a name
    But I guess it's all right with me
    As I sit alone, after a long day
    In the absence of company

    Whoa, I let my mind wander
    Eh yeeh
    A thousand miles away hey hey

    What I wouldn't give for only one night
    A little relief in sight
    Someday when times weren't so tight

    When the day goes down on the water town
    When the sun sinks low all around
    That's when I know I, I need you now
    Yes, you're what I miss, every little kiss
    Nah!
    Every little one, every little one

    Eh yeeh

    Eh yeeh
    Mmmmm
    What I wouldn't give for only one night
    A little relief in sight
    Someday when times weren't so tight
    When the day goes down on the water town
    When the sun sinks low all around
    That's when I know I, I need you now
    Yes, you're what I miss, every little kiss
    Every little one, every little one

    Eh yeah
    Do do do do do do dooo
    Yyyeeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    Uuuuuuuh uuuh

    Every little, every little
    Every little kiss

  48. Daniel Gossin

    How bout the drummer looks like Kelsey Grammer..... Lol

  49. Caleb Hu

    He puts Charles Ive's Concord Sonata to great use here.

  50. Bud Summers

    I saw Hornsby solo at a tiny private college auditorium - I think it was late 2005 or early 2006- best show I've ever seen/heard. He'd play part of a song and improvise for a while before coming back to finish it. He had a box near the stage during intermission for people to write down requests and that's what he played for the 2nd half. Gutless me didn't go up and write down "Every Little Kiss"

  51. Dark Autumn Stories

    I'm a singer, pianist and musician myself, have been for 25 years. Bruce Hornsby, Marc Cohen and Billy Joel are such brilliant pianists. I love their style of playing SO much! Very influential to me.

  52. davedzone

    Screw who is better. Amazing song. Just a dagger delivered right on target. Feels, words, everything.

  53. Tim Campbell

    who are the fools that thumbed this down?

    FartManly

    exactly. fools. probably millennials.

  54. Owen Finnegan

    amazing song. Keeps me young.

  55. B Revak

    Bruce is one of the greats!

  56. ahoneyman

    Ii saw him play with the Grateful Dead at the old RFK stadium. Great show.

  57. Arun Phillips

    I miss this America, sadly long long gone, but the actual country and it's beautiful landscapes will never change!

    DesertRose122

    I'd still love to go cruisin' down old Route 66 from Chicago to Cali!

  58. Channel 28

    Those 483 people who thumbs downed this...I am so sorry for your hearing/heart conditions!! 😜😂

  59. Channel 28

    One of my very favorite songs! Ever!! ❤

  60. Brian Cook

    What a pleasure...great songs will live forever.

  61. Terry Bear

    Pure Heaven. Thanks so much!

  62. Marcos Adriano Chicatto

    2019/2020 Brazil here!!!

  63. Robert e Lee

    Watertown Wisconsin

  64. wvben

    THIS is Bruce Hornsby!

  65. Justin Ownby

    Dr. Frasier Crane killing it on drums

  66. theboombody

    Man, this was a strong, STRONG album. So much quality work in such a small space. I think I've only seen the Beatles have that level of quality, and they had a heck of a lot more hype behind them than Bruce ever did.

  67. Cantor Edson Sadraque Oficial

    Amo de mais esse som top top top

  68. steve tucker

    mst3KGf, could not agree more

  69. Matheus Domingues

    John Mayer is the Bruce Hornsby using guitar and Bruce was/is the ancient John from piano

  70. dognasty3

    Extremely cool song.

  71. chris walford

    What an " old Joanna" player..............eat your heart out Elton J

  72. scott a

    One of my favs from 1987. This was released twice ..first in '86, peaking on the Billboard Hot 100 at a meager #72. Second time was the charm, climbing to #14. No doubt boosted by the success of title track from "The Way It Is". "Every Little Kiss" is a better tune in my opinion. I couldn't get enough of the video either.

  73. Colty77

    I'm guessing this was shot in West Texas?

    The Jimmy Hasselhoff

    Just east of Austin near Manor according to the internet.

  74. Matt Corcoran

    Me so Hornsby

  75. Adrian

    I remember 1987 like it was the back of my own hand. This was the first song on my iPod.

    djremy

    Hahaha--ipod. In '87, it's more like a walkman! Lol

  76. notanoshow

    PROBABLY MY FAVORITE BRUCE HORNSBY SONG!!! How could you be sad and gloomy listening to this??? Love you Bruce!! XOXO

  77. Owen Finnegan

    Listening to this, trying to find a reason .....

  78. Perry Ball

    They cut out Bruce’s brilliant piano solo at 3:53 mark. Foul!!

  79. Shawn Meador

    Currently deployed and this song makes me think of my wife and son. I sing it almost every day/evening.

  80. olemolokoplus

    Jack Nicholson on drums, Richard Simmons on guitar.,

  81. Sally Beaver

    I blew my car speakers listenting to this cassette in '87 lol

  82. Lc H

    I need a hot tub time machine , I wouldn't come back

  83. Baithuti Seku

    Such a peaceful song,sitting alone thinking of the past with smile on face those days, thanks bruce with such a good song

  84. Agustin Paez

    Que excelente música dios mio! Que vuelvan esos tiempos...

  85. John Poppa

    This song makes me think about my youth growing up in Williamsburg, VA!!!!

  86. Danny Swiss

    Hornsby stated in a 2011 interview that he doesn't feel this song has aged very well, and doesn't play it often live.
    I still like it :)

    gcHK47

    Hard to believe he’s think that.

    Channel 28

    This is my favorite. This gets the groove right there in the heart. Feel it??!

  87. stflaw

    This version cuts out a few seconds of music at 3:53.

  88. Darren Lewis

    Man I love this song.

  89. carlagibson24

    I miss every little kiss!!God knows I do and need him so much!!

  90. Walter Pewen

    Buying the album at release in 86 may have been the best thing I did that year.

  91. Salmon Sushi

    I’ll take 99 over 2019 anywhere or time.

  92. Randall Polk

    looks like a family member did the video but who cares ? I was in prison when this album came out and I had some pull and anyway got the recording ...30 years ago still sounds great !!!

  93. Jon Dowling

    This song amongst all of Bruce’s brings back wonderful memories of my childhood, where I grew up and a much simpler happier time.

  94. DARREL MORGAN

    Wow what a great video ...wish there was a real honest women in the world like the one in this video ...waiting for her man trying to get to him ...in reality never happen

  95. Troubadour 123

    This is what Virginia sounds like

    Every Little Kiss

    Bruce Hornsby and the Range

    Way out here, working on the docks
    Everyone sees the long day through
    Now what would I do without the nights and the phone
    And the chance just to talk to you
    Oh, what would I do now
    Hey, just to talk to you, a thousand miles away, hey hey
    What I wouldn't give for only one night
    A little relief in sight
    Someday when times weren't so tight
    When the day goes down on water town
    When the sun sinks low all around
    That's when I know I, I need you now
    Yes you're what I miss, every little kiss
    Every little one, every little one

    Everybody here's a number, not a name
    But I guess it's alright with me
    As I stood alone, after a long day
    In the absence of company
    Oh, I let my mind wander
    A thousand miles away hey hey

    What I wouldn't give for only one night
    A little…

    I hate how the video, and in the 80s, the radio, takes out the piano interlude...that is the best part of the song, the best part of Bruce's songs, takes me to another place in time when life was easier and more beautiful...
