Kisses at Airports

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This tender tune about making every goodbye count was written by Jessi Alexander, Connie Harrington and Chase McGill. The song was the only cut of the four on the Summer EP that Cassadee Pope didn't write. However, once she heard the song, Pope knew she had to record it. "I cried when I first heard it. It was a very moving experience," she recalled to Billboard magazine. "I felt really close to it, because I spend most of my life in airports, and say a lot of goodbyes there. I felt this very deep connection with it."
  • The second verse is Pope's favorite part of the song, as it tips the hat to the men and women who serve our country. "I've seen so many people in the Armed Forces come and go at airports and I've seen them being welcomed back," she told CMT News. "You can't help but get emotional when you see that. You should let the people you love know that you care about them all the time. You never know what might happen."
