Kiss Me Slowly

Album: The Way It Was (2011)
  • Stay with me, baby stay with me,
    Tonight don't leave me alone.
    Walk with me, come and walk with me,
    To the edge of all we've ever known.

    I can see you there with the city lights
    Fourteenth floor, pale blue eyes.
    I can breathe you in.
    Two shadows standing by the bedroom door,
    No, I could not want you more than I did right then,
    As our heads leaned in.

    Well, I'm not sure what this is gonna be,
    But with my eyes closed all I see
    Is the skyline, through the window,
    The moon above you and the streets below.
    Hold my breath as you're moving in,
    Taste your lips and feel your skin.
    When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

    Stay with me, baby stay with me,
    Tonight don't leave me alone.
    She shows me everything she used to know,
    Picture frames and country roads,
    When the days were long and the world was small.

    She stood by as it fell apart,
    Separate rooms and broken hearts,
    But I won't be the one to let you go.

    Oh, I'm not sure what this is gonna be,
    But with my eyes closed all I see
    Is the skyline, through the window,
    The moon above you and the streets below.

    Hold my breath as you're moving in,
    Taste your lips and feel your skin.
    When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

    Don't run away
    And it's hard to love again,
    When the only way it's been,
    When the only love you know,
    Just walked away
    If it's something that you want,
    Darling you don't have to run,
    You don't have to go

    Just stay with me, baby stay with me

    Well, I'm not sure what this is gonna be,
    But with my eyes closed all I see
    Is the skyline, through the window,
    The moon above you and the streets below.
    Hold my breath as you're moving in,
    Taste your lips and feel your skin.
    When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

    Oh, I'm not sure what this is gonna go,
    But in this moment all I know
    Is the skyline, through the window,
    The moon above you and the streets below.
    Hold my breath as you're moving in,
    Taste your lips and feel your skin.
    When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly. Writer/s: Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, David Wesley Haywood, William Charles Anderson
