More than a first kiss i can see this as a tragic love story. the knight returns home after years in war, injured terribly and dying. the love of his life, who he was going to propose to rushes to see him dragging himself into the town, he smiles at her. though beaten, weary and bloodied he embraces her for the last time, pulling out a ring on a silver chain and putting it around her neck. they kiss and he slowly slips away from her, collapsing to the ground. she quietly kneels there, with his head in her lap as people rush to try to help. well that's the image i get from the song at least

Bosa responds:

Very sentimental indeed. I can see some tragedy within the song, and sometimes my own personal emotions reveal themselves within my music. Thank you again as always for the support and reviews.

I agree with Ninjaro;
It seems like this would better suit a kind of dramatic, and rather fragile moment.
But I also disagree.
Listening closer to the music, it does go along with a first kiss; I really shouldn't kbow, since I never had one (yet). But wow.
To have it on a loop would make it better
Tweet tweet,
Songs with names of events that would never happen to me.
I love them.

Bosa responds:

No, it will happen to you eventually!

Dug it a lot. Did you put a "bird" in there? haha. Goosebump inspiring...like that first kiss always is. Very cool.

Bosa responds:

Lol it was a whistle! Thanks, man. I appreciate you a lot.

Personally, I don't believe the title to suit the piece itself.. it seems so melancholy and fragile, to which I'm not quite sure if such feelings would be reflected in the first kiss with someone. But I suppose maybe this links to a sense of long-awaitedness, of angst?... I digress.

The piece itself is yet again beautiful as usual, and it loops quite well, too. Personally were I to see it in use I would expect it in some kind of game or visual novel of sorts when a character leaves.. or dies. It's not to imply that this is bad in any way, but to say that this seems under the wrong name.

Bosa responds:

Yes, I struggled with the title. I almost feel inclined to set it under a different name, but I still feel like it has a love theme to it.

Thank you for your insight. It helps to have supportive, encouraging, and challenging opinions.

Again, you leave me speechless. This is a beautiful piece, Bosa! Please keep up the fantastic work!

Bosa responds:

I always appreciate your reviews. Thank you very much for the support you've shown me. I don't have much time to make music because I am teaching elementary kids, but I hope to write some more stuff soon.
