"Just A Kiss" as written by Dallas Davidson, Hillary Dawn Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood....
Lyin' here with you so close to me
It's hard to fight these feelings
When it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smile

I've never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back
When I'm holding you in my arms
We don't need to rush this
Let's just take it slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time
It'll only bring us closer
To the love we wanna find
It's never felt so real
No it's never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No I don't want to say goodnight
I know it's time to leave,
But you'll be in my dreams

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don't want to mess this thing up
I don't want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
So baby I'm alright, oh, let's do this right

With just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

    General CommentThis song seems pretty self explanatory, or at least this is my impression the chorus says it all

    "Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
    Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
    I don't want to mess this thing up
    I don't want to push too far
    Just a shot in the dark that you just might be the one I've been waiting for my whole life
    So baby, I'm alright with just a kiss goodnight"

    He/she is saying that they are content with how things are going and that they are fine with just a kiss good night because they dont want to move to fast or push to hard and drive the other person away and possibly mess things up. They love each other and believe that the other person could be their future husband/wife soul mate type of deal.

    On a personal level this song definitely what im going through with a really good friend. She is my world and i absolutely love her to death and these lyrics fit perfectly to describe the situation.
    So that's my opinion

    General CommentArgh, so madly in love with this song! Can't stop listening to it, really beautiful. I don't know what it is about it but it has this way of making me feel full and contented inside, really resonates with me somehow, the combination of instruments and their amazing voices.
    Can't wait for their new album! My most anticipated album of the year so far :D

    General CommentGreat song. It really reminded me of why I fell in love with country music in the first place. Even if you do not fully understand what the lyrics mean on brilliant songs like these, you just know that they're perfect for when you're tryna express how you feel, but just can't put it into words, but you know the song more than takes care of it for you.

    General CommentI agree that this songs meaning comes out in the lyrics no real interpretation but how you relate is where the difference lays.
    I think of back to how my fiance and I started dating and all the memories of the past 4 years comes back as I listen to this song.

    MemoryDiffinatly a memory for me.
    It was playing at my friends when i hocked up with a random guy that I ended up falling in love. It only took a shot in the dark to find the one.

    Song MeaningThis song defiantly means to take things slow. If you take things too fast it may end up you losing the one you love. It says in almost the entire thing that you should go slow.
    "We don't need to rush this,Let's just take it slow" just basically says what this song is about.
