You Ain't Here To Kiss Me

Album: Brett Young (2017)
  • Home for seven days and I haven't even seen your face
    I guess I've got a flight to change
    There ain't nothin' left to say

    If you really don't have it figured out by now
    There's no need for me to hang around
    I gotta get outta town

    Five dollar drink and a lonely window seat
    Half empty plane on New Years Eve
    Love birds in the row in front of me are driving me crazy
    The pilot comes on, says the year is almost gone
    Five, four, three, two, one
    Looks like it's just me and the whiskey
    'Cause you ain't here to kiss me
    You ain't here to kiss me

    Raise a toast to the thought of you and me
    This was just the way it had to be
    Ninety-proof to give me clarity
    The flight attendant must know that somethings going on
    Can't hide the look of love gone wrong
    So she's pouring them a little strong

    Five dollar drink and a lonely window seat
    Half empty plane on New Years Eve
    Love birds in the row in front of me are driving me crazy
    The pilot comes on, says the year is almost gone
    Five, four, three, two, one
    Looks like it's just me and the whiskey
    'Cause you ain't here to kiss me
    You ain't here to kiss me

    At least we had a chance to know how it feels to love
    But it turns out love ain't always enough
    So I'll start getting over you

    With another five dollar drink and a lonely window seat
    Half empty plane on New Years Eve
    Love birds in the row in front of me, just like we used to be
    The pilot comes on, says the year is almost gone
    Five, four, three, two, one
    Looks like it's just me and the whiskey
    'Cause you ain't here to kiss me yeah
    You ain't here to kiss me, no
    You ain't here to kiss me Writer/s: BRETT YOUNG, MATTHEW JAMES ALDERMAN, TIFFANY LANE GOSS
