Fresh off the global success of their “Need You Now” album, Lady Antebellum returns with their newest single “Just a Kiss”. The song embodies particles of a romantic country ballad that the trio is known to bring forth. The mixture of pop along the way crosses it over to mainstream, but the piano and acoustic guitar keeps it grounded in its country roots. This song won me over the moment the music started playing. It’s so soothing and intimate, giving a feeling as if you can no where but forward.
Hillary opens up the verse with a sweet and emotional breakdown of what her new found love is like. It’s only natural since the single
was inspired by her relationship. The track is all about taking your time to make things go smoothly. There’s a lot of spark and attraction when you’ve just started dating, learning about each other and developing strong feelings. It’s not about the bigger things; just a kiss will assure each other that the relationship will be deep and lasting if you don’t rush. As simple as it is, kissing is a more passionate and meaningful way to declare your love and affection for someone. In time, you’ll only grow stronger together.
The chorus alone reveals the true meaning behind the song:
“Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight, just a touch of your fire burning so bright, no I don’t wanna mess this thing up. No 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.”
“Just a Kiss” is the couple’s anthem for the year. The track takes over from its reigning predecessor “Need You Now“. Though both have a different way of conveying it, their lyrics intertwine smoothly because of the clear message of love emphasized in each song. This is a lovely start for Lady Antebellum’s comeback and I have great expectations for their third album. “Just a Kiss” gets a rating of 5/5 from EY. Purchase the single now on itunes
