Kisses Like Mine

Album: I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • O'Connor told The Daily Telegraph that of all the female characters she sings of on her I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss album, she is most similar in romantic spirit to the one on this song. "The one I'm most like would be the very mischievous woman in 'Kisses Like Mine,' who is running around adoring everybody and isn't the keeping kind," she explained. "I don't think that's a bad thing. Why should someone want to be the keeping kind?"
