Love Gun


Kiss - Love Gun - Meaning of the song


The title song has been played on every Kiss tour since its release. Stanley has cited it as one of his favorite Kiss songs. It was the first song that Stanley wrote, arranged and produced in its entirety.

The song shares many of its lyrics with "The Hunter", written by Booker T. & the M.G.'s, and recorded by Albert King, Ike and Tina Turner, Blue Cheer, and Free. In his autobiography Face the Music, Stanley acknowledges the derivation:


"I stole the idea of a 'love gun' from Albert King's version of 'The Hunter,' which Zeppelin also nicked from for 'How Many More Times' on their first album."


Love gun - Lyrics


I really love you, baby

I love what you've got

Let's get together, we can

Get hot

No more tomorrow, baby

Time is today

Girl, I can make you feel

OK


No place for hiding, baby

No place to run

You pull the trigger of my

Love gun (love gun), love gun

Love gun (love gun), love gun


You can't forget me, baby

Don't try to lie

You'll never leave me, mama

So don't try

I'll be a gambler, baby

Lay down the bet

We get together, mama

You'll sweat


No place for hiding, baby

No place to run

You pull the trigger of my

Love gun (love gun), love gun

Love gun (love gun), love gun

Love gun, love gun


Love gun (love gun), love gun

Love gun (love gun)

Love gun (love gun), love gun

Love gun (love gun), love gun

Love gun (love gun)

Love gun (love gun)

Love gun (love gun)

Love gun (love)
