Tuesday Tunes: Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?

It’s been a long while since I’ve been inspired enough by a song to post about it in a Tuesday Tunes. Thompson Square’s Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not has been out for a few months now, and I’ve adored it since the first time I heard it. I love that it’s a duet, I love that its sound is very country-contemporary, and I love the sort of epic-love-story quality of the lyrics (It was the best dang kiss that I’d ever had/Except for that long one after that). Here’s the video, with lyrics* below…

We were sittin’ up there on your momma’s roof
Talkin’ about everything under the moon
With the smell of honeysuckle and your perfume
All I could think about was my next move

Oh, but you were so shy, so was I
Maybe that’s why it was so hard to believe
When you smiled and said to me
“Are you gonna kiss me or not?”

Are we gonna do this or what?
I think you know I like you a lot
But you’re about to miss your shot
“Are you gonna kiss me or not?”

It was the best dang kiss I ever had
Except for that long one after that
And I knew if I wanted this thing to last
Sooner or later I’d have to ask for your hand

So I took a chance
Bought a wedding band and got down on one knee
And you smiled and said to me
“Are you gonna kiss me or not?”

Are we gonna do this or what?
I think you know I love you a lot
I think we’ve got a real good shot
“Are you gonna kiss me or not?”

So, we planned it all out for the middle of June
From the wedding cake to the honeymoon
And your momma cried
When you walked down the aisle

When the preacher man said “Say I do”
I did and you did too, then I lifted that veil
And saw your pretty smile and I said
“Are you gonna kiss me or not?

Are we gonna do this or what?
Look at all the love we got
It ain’t never gonna stop
Are you gonna kiss me or not?”

Yeah baby, I love you a lot
I really think we’ve got a shot
Are you gonna kiss me or not?

*Lyrics written by Jim Collins and David Lee Murphy
