  • In my young life I have received
    Callers as though they were christmas eve
    Disappointed and I don't know why
    She gave me laughter and hope
    And a sock in the eye (a love like this is sealed with a kiss)

    In my young life and I know something now
    I've never tried to create a wow
    Wows are few frustration more common
    Now I can feel it in my soul
    That's why I gave the come on

    (Kiss, kiss, kiss)
    Kiss me with your mouth
    Your love is better than wine
    Kiss me with your mouth
    Your love is better than wine
    But wine is all I have
    Will your love ever be mine?

    (Kiss this with a kiss)
    Faces fall before my feet
    Like blood onto a clean white sheet
    When I grow old I won't forget
    To innocence my only debt

    Wow I feel so fresh today
    Barefoot in the snow to make love in the hay
    The stars are bright in the abyss
    Now I can feel you in my arms
    I explode inside your kiss

    Kiss me with your mouth
    Your love is better than wine
    But wine is all I have
    Will your love ever be mine?

    Kiss me with your mouth
    Your love is better than wine
    But wine is all I have
    Will your love ever be mine?

    Kiss me with your mouth
    Your love is better than wine
    But wine is all I have
    Will your love ever be mine?

    Kiss me with your mouth
    Your love is better than wine
    But wine is all I have
    Will your love ever be mine? Writer/s: Stephen Duffy

  • Big Tommy from Los AngelesTin Tin was actually the first vocalist for Duran Duran, as he and Nick Rhodes were besties. Stephen left DD, thinking the project was going nowhere. Duffy and Rhodes later reunited for other projects, but it will always be wondered if Duffy traded in long term success for a 1-hit-wonder.
  • Myla from San Diego, CaThis song had heavy airplay on 91X in San Diego during the early 8o's. Ah, the exciting memories of hearing cool new wave music for the first time!
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesYes he did, one of his albums was entitled "THEY CALLED HIM TIN-TIN"! Did he have a ginger quiff or something?!
  • Keith Major from Bristol, EnglandIf I remember correctly, Duffy had the recording name of Stephen "Tin-Tin" Duffy.
