[Verse 1]
There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea
You became the light on the dark side of me
Love remained a drug that’s the high and not the pill

[Pre-Chorus]
But did you know
That when it snows
My eyes become large and
The light that you shine can’t be seen

[Chorus]
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray

[Verse 2]
There is so much a man can tell you
So much he can say
You remain
My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby?

[Pre-Chorus]
But did you know
That when it snows
My eyes become large and
The light that you shine can’t be seen

[Chorus]
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray

[Bridge]
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray
I, I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray
I’ve … (and if I should fall along the way) … been kissed by a rose on the gray
I, I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray

[Verse 2]
There is so much a man can tell you
So much he can say
You remain
My power, my pleasure, my pain
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny, yeah
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
But did you know
That when it snows
My eyes become large and
The light that you shine can’t be seen

[Chorus]
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray
Yes, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
The stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray

[Outro]
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray”

Kiss From A Rose by Seal songfacts.com
“…Seal bucked convention by including printed lyrics with the album, something he did because he didn’t want to wash away anyone’s interpretation. He also says that his songs often mean more than one thing, so attributing a meaning would be too simplistic. In lieu of lyrics, Seal wrote a screed on the subject that went with the album. “I think it’s the general vibe of what I’m saying that is important and not the exact literal translation,” he wrote. “The song is always larger in the listener’s mind because with it they attach imagery which is relative to their own personal experience. So it is your perception of what I’m saying rather than what I actually way that is the key.”
Seal wrote this song sometime around 1988 when he was living in a squat in Kensal Green, London. He says it was a liberating time, as it was before he had a record deal and there was no pressure on him. He didn’t know how to play any instruments, so he sang the instrumental parts onto a 4-track tape recorder as an experiment. He tossed the tape aside and thought nothing of it; when he recorded his 1991 debut album, he didn’t even consider it. ..”
