The Other Side Of This Kiss
Mindy McCready Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've got a feeling, call it intuition
I've got a feeling we're getting into something more
You've been talking telling me your secrets
Baby, that's just a crack in the door

I want to know what's on the other side
Come on baby now don't be shy
I want to know what's on the other side
Of this kiss, that look
I want to read you baby, like a book
So close, to those eyes
I want to know what's on the other side
Of this kiss

I got a vision, you and me together
I got a vision, wants to turn into reality
Show me your heart, show me your emotions
Show me parts of you I can't see

I want to know what's on the other side
Come on baby now don't be shy
I want to know what's on the other side
Of this kiss, that look
I want to read you baby, like a book
So close, to those eyes
I want to know what's on the other side
Of this kiss

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I want to know what's on the other side
I want to know what's on the other side
Come on baby now don't be shy
I want to know what's on the other side
Of this kiss
(I want to know what's on the other side) Of this kiss
(I want to know what's on the other side) Of this kiss



(This kiss, that look) That look, those eyes
This kiss

She had a very great country voice!!! So sad that she is gone!!!

Matthew Jones

Mindy was absolutely the most talented woman….and one of my first adolescent crushes….musically and romantically. She was just so perfect

Justin Davis

Wow! I love how she works that crowd while keeping focus on the camera. She knows she is the center of attention here and you can tell she's enjoying every moment of it. She is having a blast between dancing, flirting and working the camera. The big kiss and hug from Dean Cain wraps it up nicely.

It's just sad that she is no longer with us.😭

David Book

Robert DeBlanc

9 years ago, Mindy went to heaven and her fans will certainly salute her in their own way from singing their favorite song by her, Dancing to their favorite songs by her or some other way. R.I.P Mindy

I was home for college. I'd just came back to my dad's house from a run. I still had my headphones on listening to this song. I was singing my heart out as I was stretching after my run. (And, who wouldn't belt their heart out to this song?)

Anyway, I didn't know my dad came home, because I had the headphones on still. He walked in my room, and I stopped singing. I've always been shy about singing. He asked if that was me singing. I shyly said, "Yes." He simply replied, "Wow!"

I love my dad dearly. This will always be a favorite moment of mine. I've never shared it with anyone, but here I am 20 some odd years later feeling nostalgic.

Life flies by fast. Cherish those you love. xx ❤

I've always loved this song. Wish she was still around.
