Seal: Kiss from a rose

MMDE: "Kissed by a rose on the grave"

Current: "Kissed by a rose on the grey"

Seal's 1994 hit 'Kiss from a rose' was used in the Batman Forever soundtrack.

There's something odd about the lyrics, though.

It mentions in the first line a greying tower, and is full of imagery surrounding color. So the main refrain, which many people are sure is '...kissed by a rose on the grave' is seen today as ''...kissed by a rose on the grey"

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey

Misheard lyrics?

Mandela Effects around misheard lyrics are tricky. No one is seriously saying Jimi Hendrix sang "''Scuse me while I kiss this guy" in Purple Haze. For it to be an ME, it has to have been believed by many people that the original lyric has changed. There is evidence this is the case here.
