Just A Kiss – Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum just unveiled their new single, Just A Kiss and almost like their mega smash Need You Now, I was smiling halfway when I first heard it. It will be huge.

These are the lyrics:

Lying 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 never open 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

Chorus
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

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

Chorus
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

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

Chorus
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so brigh
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

Let’s do this right with just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
A kiss goodnight

The harmonies by Hilllary Scott and Charles Kelley are absolutely stunning. You can draw comparisons to Need You Now melody-wise and that is not necessarily a bad thing. Need You Now won grammys for song and record of the year, which is only indicative of the substantial quality of that song. Some of you might have gotten tired of overplaying it but it’s simply a brilliant song. Just A Kiss isn’t any less, albeit it’s thematically much different from Need You Now. While the latter was a cry of romantic and even sexual urgency, Just A Kiss is a song in which the narrator wants to take things slower and deeper. However, Just A Kiss is as infectious as Need You Now.. It’s subtle, it’s fragile – just as a growing love starts… with that first kiss that you are usually reluctant to take.

You can feel the reluctance in the way Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley deliver the lyrics… there’s a sense of longing in the way they utter the lyrics that adds a whole level of credibility to “Just A Kiss“.

Overall, this will be huge on country radio. It is also a potential crossover smash waiting to happen. It is a brilliant country song that excels at being the lead single off Lady Antebellum’s upcoming album.
