Lyin' here with you so close to me
It's hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
I'm caught up in this moment
I'm 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

Chorus:
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch iof the fire burning so bright
And I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna 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

Chorus:
Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna 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

Bridge:
No I don't wanna 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
And I don't wanna mess this thing up
I don't wanna 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

    I’m caught up in this song! What a sweet romantic ballad. It’s easy to relate to the experience of being with a romantic interest and not wanting to spoil the moment...everything is perfect as it is. When you’re in such a serene moment such as Lady Antebellum beautifully describes, it’s easy to wonder if the person in front of you will be the one you’ve been waiting for. The sense of time slowing down in the moment, juxtaposed with all these thoughts of the future rushing through your head is a brilliant concept. Although the singers don’t want the moment to end, they are conscious of the fact that they want their blooming relationship to start off right. They are thinking simultaneously in the present and the future.

    Obviously, this song isn’t breaking any ground in terms of its lyrical romantic overtones, but Lady Antebellum have a knack for creating beautiful songs with lyrics depicting scenes. The listener can easily relate to what’s happening. Even if they personally haven’t had a goodnight kiss under the moonlight, the sentiment is something everyone can relate to.

    This song reminds me of my boyfriend and we haven't kissed yet. When we do i want it to happen just like that and i want him to be ready and kiss me when he feels its right. Thomas, i love you and always will.
