I wrote Woodland Kiss after seeing a young couple kissing by some woods on a summer's evening. It gave me the idea for a song about a man who returns to his childhood home at the end of his life, and is reminded of his first love, and how nothing else in the world seemed to matter.

Lyrics

So many years since I’ve been here
Shadows grow long in the day
Corn is ripe, white like the sun
Like the years of my life
Harvest time has come

Edge of the deep green wood
Mayflies in the light
Two lovers kiss, like ghosts of the past
Takes me back
To the love we had

For all that I have
This moment that’s passed
From riches to rags
It never lasts
What wouldn’t I give
For that woodland kiss?

It’s a story of love
Story of life
What’s good never lasts
As day turns to night
What wouldn’t I give
For that woodland kiss?

So many years since I’ve been here
Too many now to say
If I knew then all I know now
I’d never let go
I’d hold you all the way

Edge of the deep green wood
Mayflies in the light
Two lovers kiss, like ghosts of the past
I see you at last
As if for the first time

For all that I’ve seen
All that I’ve been
From riches to rags
It never lasts
What wouldn’t I give
For that woodland kiss?

It’s a story of love
Story of life
So close to the end
As day turns to night
What wouldn’t I give
For that woodland kiss?

What wouldn’t I give
For that woodland kiss?
