I Fall in Love Too Easily
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard, for love to ever last
My heart should be well schooled, 'cause I've been fooled in the past
And still I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast

I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard, for love to ever last
My heart should be well schooled, 'cause I've been fooled in the past
And still I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast





Overall Meaning

Frank Sinatra's song "I Fall in Love Too Easily" speaks of the singer's tendency to be easily drawn to and involved in romantic relationships. The song is characterized by melancholic notes and an overall mood of sadness, as despite past heartbreaks, the singer still finds themselves falling in love too easily and too fast. The first line of the song, "I fall in love too easily," sets the tone for the entire song as he acknowledges his love for love even though it often ends in heartbreak. The second line, "I fall in love too fast," emphasizes the intensity of the emotions he feels towards his romantic interests.


The second stanza continues in a similar vein, emphasizing the singer's awareness of his own emotional recklessness. The line "My heart should be well schooled, 'cause I've been fooled in the past" suggests the singer has experienced emotional pain in past relationships, yet he is unable to suppress his romantic desires despite the potential for heartbreak in the future. This is highlighted by the repetition of the refrain "And still I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast."


The lyrics of the song address the concept of emotional vulnerability, which is a common theme in many love songs. However, the song goes beyond a simplistic portrayal of love and heartbreak, delving into the singer's psychology and the inner conflict between his desire for love and his knowledge of its potential for emotional pain.


Line by Line Meaning

I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
I have a tendency to develop feelings for people very quickly and without much reason


I fall in love too terribly hard, for love to ever last
My strong feelings often dissipate as quickly as they came, leaving me heartbroken


My heart should be well schooled, 'cause I've been fooled in the past
I should have learned from my past experiences, but I still find myself falling for people just as easily


And still I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
Despite knowing the risks and my past experiences, I continue to fall in love too easily and too quickly

Amo as músicas de Frank Sinatra, melhor cantor de todos os tempos. Sua voz na interpretação de músicas românticas nos faz sonhar, ele canta com o coração.
I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard
For love to ever last
My heart should be well-schooled
'Cause I been fooled in the past
But still I fall in love so easily
I fall in love too fast



Fer Santana

I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard
For love to ever last
My heart should be well schooled
'Cause I've been fooled in the past
But still I fall in love so easily
I fall in love too fast
My heart should be well schooled
'Cause I've been fooled in the past
But still I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast

Frank is the only singer that has made me cry, not because he is singing something that relates to me, therefore making me relive past memories, its the voice that makes me tear up. The soft voice lingering within my ears as he gently plays the piano just gets to me. What a legend ❤

Peter Taylor

I know exactly. I was in the 2nd wave of fans who were into the last to wear bobby soxes and the rest of it. I would simply melt at his voice and even his look. I must have been mad! But there I was!

It's a line from the song "Tell Her (You Love Her Each Day)" -- not to be confused with the similarly titled "Tell Her You Love Her" -- both of which were recorded by Mr. Sinatra.

@redline that's how much it meant to him, he didn't just tell anyone "I love you" all the time. It would have lost its' value then.

DARK HAIR and BRIGHT EYES. COME ON people... he's rare not only as an actor and a singer but also specie.

Dave Cochrane

A specie? Blimey. We have enough alphabet soup BS categories for humans alone without adding whole new species. I promise I'm not a Sinatraphobe, please don't have me arrested for a hate crime.
