LOVE STORY JUST GOT RE-RELEASED AND THE WHOLE FEARLESS ALBUM COMES OUT APRIL 9TH
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I don't have a great melody for this one yet, but I've played around with it a little. I'll record it. Eventually.
HAS ANYONE SEEN CHEERS? IS IT JUST ME? it makes so much more sense to me in the context of Sam and Diane.
so much love and thanks to all the kind words and advice and reviews, especially on my song "A Beautiful Ache"! you people are amazing.

Falling Into You (Lyrics)

[VERSE 1: FEMALE]
I caught your eye again last Friday
As I was hanging up my coat
By the door
That unexplainable second when
Our gazes briefly met
And it was gone

[PRE-CHORUS 1: FEMALE]
But there was something, about you,
That drew me, ever closer
To you
But I fought it 

[CHORUS: FEMALE w/MALE BACKING VOCALS]
‘Cause I’ve never met anyone like you
And I hope I never do
This world couldn’t handle anything more
You’re an infinite mystery
Who keeps driving me crazy
I can’t be sure what you’re gonna do
And I can’t risk it, the chaos that would come
From falling into you

[VERSE 2: MALE]
I told you I couldn’t stand you
But you know that I can lie
Sometimes
I swear I don’t just want your body
You’re not like the other girls I liked, and
I like that

[PRE-CHORUS 2: MALE]
‘Cause there is something about you
Can I draw you, ever closer?
To me
I can’t fight it

[CHORUS: BOTH]
‘Cause I’ve never met anyone like you
And I hope I never do
This world couldn’t handle anything more
You’re an infinite mystery
Who keeps driving me crazy
I can’t be sure what you’re gonna do
Can we risk it, the beauty that would come
From falling into you

[BRIDGE: MALE, FEMALE, BOTH]
You’re impossible (Unpredictable)
Send me up a wall (Absolutely insane)
You’re insufferable (Infuriating)
Incomparable
I can’t get enough of you (You can’t get enough of me)
I keep looking back to see your eyes
I keep coming back to hear your voice
You’ve changed the way I see the world
You were there when I needed it most
And I don’t want to let you go
I’m afraid to risk it (I don’t know how to do this)
You charm me despite myself (You’re more real and complex than I’ve known)
I don’t want to live in fear (Will you take that leap with me?)
Can we take this chance?

[CHORUS: MALE, FEMALE, BOTH]
‘Cause I’ve never met anyone like you
And I hope I never do
This world couldn’t handle anything more
You’re an infinite mystery
Who keeps driving me crazy
I can’t be sure what you’re gonna do
So let’s risk it, the wonder that would come
From falling into you

[OUTRO: MALE, FEMALE, BOTH]
So let me fall into you
Fall into you (into your arms)
So let me fall into you
Fall into you (here’s the best of my heart)
We risk it, the love that comes
From falling into you
What can I say? Songwriting is mildly addicting.
There's pretty much no way you could guess what '80s/'90s sitcom inspired this—I know I couldn't—but Cheers is the answer. We're on season 1 right now! So no spoilers if you've seen it, but I have this hunch that Sam and Diane are going to get together. They just have to. Please. Frenemies to lovers.
That's what this song is about—I could have made it more explicitly about them, but I was content with this. Maybe I'll write an exlusively "For Sam & DIane" edition.

    re: that's good! also i remember reading harry potter and a feast for crows in a day.....haha...i know harry potter is still like children's book but still. And the recording that's just perfect!!<3 I'm just addicted to it! It is 'enchant'ing and 'gorgeous' and yes 'Fearless (taylor's version)' now we can listen to it without feeling guilty ;) can't wait for april ninth. And and this song kinda reminds me of red album especially 'the last time'<3

    Re: I know right... DO NOT (I repeat) watch Blippi... my brother is 3 and loves him like- just no. [insert puke emoji] I cannot stand him at all. His voice is nauseating and ughhh don't even get me started on how annoying he is. And somehow the guy is a multi-millionaire. Help me *sigh* Isaac kills me

    wow this is going to be a GREAT song! I really want to listen to it *star eyes*!

    re: It's nice talking to you! Mandarin is indeed a difficult language to learn but I believe you'll master it if you spend time on it :)! Cantonese is really different(at least I think)... I can't really understand much of it. Sometimes the friend who taught me some Cantonese intentionally speaks in Cantonese so that he can see my confused face lol.
    Personally I think height is not a problem for sprinters -- I know many great sprinters in my school who are of a tiny build :) maybe you'll excel in it if you practice more! Anyway, It's really nice that you've found your passion and gift in long distance running!

    Re: Haha yeah we both panicked but it turned out so good. We can't date but it's really nice talking to each other with all of it out of the way.
