"On A Night Like This" as written by and Dave Barnes....
On a night like this
I could fall in love
I could fall in love with you

In this dark so dense
We talk so soft
The way young lovers do

The days last sight
Turns to cool nights breeze
And this love hangs thick like these willow leaves
I've hid myself away from this
But your silhouette is the Judas kiss

On a night like this
I could fall in love
I could fall in love with you

    My OpinionThe Judas Kiss he is referring to is the fact that her silhouette in the dark betrays his true, suppressed feelings of love for her. I believe, he's been hiding ('hid myself from this') his love for this girl and the moment, mood and atmosphere they are in is just perfect--perfect enough to reveal how he truly feels for her.

    General CommentThis song is so sweet and amazing. Its softness, that of Dave Barnes, calls to my heart. It makes me want to go out and fall in love while walking under a dark night sky with a million stars to guide us.

    General CommentThe words and the melody and the over all song is just so simple but at the same time it's perfect. The song itself captures love and the wanting and yearning to be with someone you're madly in love with.

    General CommentI thought I knew what this song was about until I read the lyrics! I thought he was saying "true love's kiss" - which makes sense with the romantic vibe of the song - but it's "Judas kiss"? Judas greeted Jesus with a kiss on the cheek the day he betrayed Jesus to Romans, so a "Judas kiss" would be a betrayal, not a sweet romantic moment. Anyone have thoughts? I don't know much about Dave Barnes, this song randomly popped up on my Pandora. Is it about being with someone who seems right in the moment ("on a night like this, you seem perfect") but is actually bad for you?

    Song MeaningI still am having a problem with "A Judas Kiss". I think the song is about unrequited love. He is falling in love with her but knows deep down she will never love him back. "I hid myself away from this" is him wanting her to love him but in her silhouette he sees something that shows she never will.
