"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" as written by Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott....
I know that the bridges that I've burned
Along the way
Have left me with these walls and these scars
That won't go away
And opening up has always been the hardest thing
Until you came

So lay here beside me just hold me and don't let go
This feelin' I'm feelin' is somethin' I've never known
And I just can't take my eyes off you
And I just can't take my eyes off you

I love when you tell me that I'm pretty
When I just wake up
And I love how you tease me when I'm moody
But it's never too much
I'm falling fast but the truth is I'm not scared at all
You climbed my walls

So lay here beside me just hold me and don't let go
This feelin' I'm feelin' is somethin' I've never known
And I just can't take my eyes off you
And I just can't take my eyes off you

Off you
Off you

So lay here beside me just hold me and don't let go
This feelin' I'm feelin' is somethin' I've never known
And I just can't take my eyes off you
And I just can't take my eyes off you

    General CommentIt is about being hurt in the past and having bad relationships, so she was scared to trust. Then came along the one person who climbed the wall, the one she fell in love with. It is about finding the one you love, the one you never want to take your eyes off of...

    General CommentThis is by far the most intimate and sexy song I've ever heard! I love it! The key change and few bars following are amazing. I'll be surprised if this is not a huge hit.

    My OpinionBeautiful. It reminds me of a the first time you fall in love, your SO in to that person. Everything feels so new and so good even if you were scared to love before, when they hold you it feels so good you just want to stay there in that moment forever. I love this song.

    General CommentI'm surprised that not many people know how beautiful this song is. Seriously. It could sit on loop all day in my room, I'd never get sick of it. Along with the rest of Lady Antebellum's songs. (:
