  • 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
    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, 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
    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, 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

  • Bethany Ellis from Blacksburg, VaI love that song it’s my moms favorite song on the radio but it was the best song I’ve ever written so far but lady antebellum did really well with music and different songs with need you now, and heart break albums. They’re so glad they worked with me.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlWow! This is such a good song! Probably one of their best ones! :)
  • Ulquiorra from Singapore, SingaporeI feel this song is about abstinence. It's about two new lovers having the desire to make love, but feel that it would potentially ruin their relationship, that they could be each other's one they've 'been waiting for my whole life' and their ensuing struggle choosing whether to make love now. They finally contend that they would be satisfied with "Just a kiss goodnight".
