(彼女をあなたの肌の下に置いた瞬間) どういう意味?
A: It's hard to say, the lyrics of this song are difficult to interpret. It's believed that it was written for Lennon's son, but the part that you quoted sounds as if it was written for John Lennon himself (and Lennon did think that was the case).

In any case, "to get under someone's skin" usually means to irritate or to bother someone. However, there is a less common positive meaning that means to affect someone (e.g. emotionally) when they didn't expect it. So this line can be interpreted as "if you let her affect you (or if you let yourself become accustomed to her), then things will become better". In case this was addressed to Julian Lennon, it really is a total mystery who "she" might be, while if it was meant for John, it's pretty clear.
