PJ and I love Lucinda Williams’s music, so I was delighted when I stumbled across a new song from her, “Kiss Like Your Kiss,” which features Elvis Costello:

This song is off the anthology album True Blood: Music from the Original HBO Series Vol. 2. I love the show, but I hadn’t paid attention to the album coming out — it’s been out since May. It also has songs by M.Ward, Jakob Dylan, Jace Everett, and Eels that I like.

“Kiss Like Your Kiss” is a beautiful love song, though it’s rather mournful and dark, as I suppose is appropriate for True Blood. It’s immediately become one of my favorite songs of the year!

Here are the lyrics:

There’ll never be a spring so perfect again
We’ll never see a yellow so rich
The grass will never be quite as green
And there’ll never be a kiss like your kiss

There will never be a summer so complete
We’ll never see a palette like this
Berries will never taste as sweet
There’ll never be a kiss like your kiss

There will never be an autumn so vivid and warm
So red, so golden, so crisp
Never see a color in aubergine
There’ll never be a kiss like your kiss

There’ll never be a winter quite so true
When the sky is painted with gifts
And there’ll never be a moon so full and blue
There will never be a kiss like your kiss

There’ll never be a kiss like your kiss
