Taylor Swift 'Enchanted' Me

Who doesn't know Taylor Swift; beautiful talented country singer that is now her singles are running around the Billboard chart. Yes, I was like 8 years late?. I thought that Taylor Swift was just a regular singer who sang people song and get famous, but the first time I listen to her song (like month ago?? I know I was out to date) and get to know her lyrics and get to know that she wrote the song moreover her song made from her personal life is just enchanted me.. Yes, all I can say I was enchanted to meet her, okay it was exaggerating...

The very first song I knew from her album is Back to December. You know back in high school, I always wrote what I feel into some words kind of lyrics but I didn't play guitar or else so my lyrics-kind-of-words remain just words in an old book. But this girl is just so talented and of course lucky that she could write her feelings and make it as a song that most of them beautiful. Back to December lyrics too deep to sweet and dark, well at least for me. I feel like it was me when I listen to the song.


But today I want to talk about her single from last year album called "Enchanted". It revealed that she wrote the song about the guy he met once and get her think about him whole night. This is what she said about the song :

I wrote "Enchanted" about a guy who I was enchanted to meet, obviously. He was somebody that I had talked to a couple of times on email, and then I was in New York and went to meet him.

I remember just the whole way home thinking, "I hope he's not in love with somebody." It was just wonderful, that feeling. Like, "Oh my gosh. Who's he with? Does he like me? Does he like somebody else? What does it mean?" I got home and he had emailed me and said something like, "Sorry I was so quiet. I was just wonderstruck meeting you." And so I incorporated the word wonderstruck, into the song as a, "Hey this one's sorta for you."
Taylor's fragrance Wonderstruck inspired by the lyrics

Here is the lyric (streaming here ):

There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired lonely place

Walls of insincerity,
Shifting eyes and vacancy
Vanished when I saw your face

All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you

Your eyes whispered "Have we met? "
Across the room your silhouette
Starts to make its way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks
Like passing notes in secrecy

And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

The lingering question kept me up
2 AM, who do you love?
I wonder 'til I'm wide awake
And now I'm pacing back and forth
Wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say, "Hey,
It was enchanting to meet you,
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you"

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
This night is flawless, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

This is me praying that
This was the very first page
Not where the story line ends
My thoughts will echo your name
Until I see you again
These are the words I held back
As I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you
Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
This night is flawless, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

And the revealed to be for Adam Young the man behind Owl City. And when he found out about the song was about him, he made cover song for Enchanted with his own record and put on his blog with this note:
Dearest Taylor,
I'll be the first to admit I'm a rather shy boy and since music is the most eloquent form of communication I can muster, I decided to record something for you — as sort of a "reply" to the breathtaking song on your current record. This is want I wanted so badly to tell you in person but could never quite put into words.
Everything about you is lovely. You're an immensely charming girl with a beautiful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe. You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale, and above all, I just want you to know..I was enchanted to meet you too.
Love, Adam
And changed and add some lyrics with his own version... Listen here:

This is the sweetest thing ever... at least my version. 

Here's Adam's version lyrics:

Here I was again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place
Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy vanished when I saw your face

All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you

Your eyes whispered “have we met?”
Across the room your silhouette starts to make it’s way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks like passing notes in secrecy
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you
Oh Taylor I was so enchanted to meet you too

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you too

The lingering question kept me up
2AM, who do you love?
I wondered till I’m wide awake
Now I’m pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
I’d open up and you would say,
"Hey it was enchanting to meet you
Oh Taylor I was so enchanted to meet you too"

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you too

This is me praying that this was the very first page
Not where the story line ends
My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again
These are the words I held back as I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you too

Please don’t be in love with someone else
Please don’t have somebody waiting on you
Please don’t be in love with someone else
Please don’t have somebody waiting on you

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
Taylor I’ll spend my whole life wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you too

I was never in love with someone else
I never had somebody waiting on me
‘Cause you were all of my dreams come true
And I just wish you knew
Taylor I was so in love with you.

I think he did actually LOVE Taylor. But yes, he should have tried harder like create a song instead of a cover song maybe?. But maybe since Taylor didn't say anything about the song, looks like the song and the note which published on Valentines Day 2011 was being deleted from both Adam's blog and Owl City's website.

Life is not a fairy tale: true. But life is about choices, we choose how we want to live our life, it could be by live it like a fairy tale. As long as it makes your life colorful.

Someone give us flower is sweet, too sweet (well, last time I check I received flower in high school, and plastic, ewww) but it sweet, being inspiration for someone to create a song for you is amazing!

Good night ;) have a nice weekend!
