Lady Antebellum’s first single from their third studio album was written by the three band members and released on May 2, 2011. The trio debuted “Just A Kiss” live on May 5, 2011 on American Idol.

The song is about a goodnight kiss at the start of a new relationship. Here’s what the three Lady Antebellum members had to say about the tune, starting with Hillary Scott, who was dating drummer Chris Tyrell when they wrote this number. She said: “We love writing songs from personal experience, and this is definitely one of those songs. There is so much excitement at the beginning of a new relationship … all the butterflies and that optimistic feeling that this person could be ‘the one.'”

Dave Haywood: “One of the best things about writing for us is that we have the option to speak from both the man and woman’s perspective because Charles and Hill can share lead vocals.”

Charles Kelley: “The day we wrote this song was one of those days that renewed my faith in the bond the three of us have as songwriters. … It came so easily, and it reminded me of the early days when we first started out, and we’d spend hours in my brother Josh’s house writing songs. Everyone keeps asking if we feel pressure after the success of ‘Need You Now,’ and we are trying to not even think about the new album or these songs in those terms. We are just writing about what we are going through in our lives, and we hope that country music fans continue to connect with them.”

The song landed at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 after its first week of release – the highest debut by a country group in the history of the chart. It later topped the Country chart and was certified 2× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It became the band’s fifth number-one hit in 2012.

LYRICS: Written by Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley
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
Kiss goodnight
