  • You don't know if it's hello or goodbye
    What kind of tears they are when they get cried
    All you know is somebody is coming or leaving
    It don't really matter whatever the reason
    Something about them gets me every time

    Kisses at airports, wide-open car doors
    So slow to let go, wrapped up with eyes closed
    Some mean "I missed you," some mean "I'm going to"
    But somehow they mean more
    Kisses at airports

    There was a crayon cardboard "Welcome home, Daddy" sign
    When he got the deployed, she was just two pink lines
    And now it's sunburned lips on ten little fingers
    And one for her mama, yeah, that one lingers
    I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one at baggage claim to cry

    Kisses at airports, thanking the good Lord
    You didn't die out there without seeing that curly red hair
    And that's why you hang on and that's how you make it home
    Got something to live for
    Kisses at airports
    Oh, oh

    When you dropped me off, I was running late
    I just grabbed my bags and ran to the gate
    But what if I had never landed
    How many times do we take for granted?

    Like kisses at airports, wide-open car doors
    No I don't want to let go
    I just want to make sure you know

    This one means I miss you, this one means I'm going to
    Make every one I give you, baby, be a little more
    Like kisses at airports
