Enchanted
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
2AM, 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 knew
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 storyline 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 knew
This night is flawless, don't you let it go (please, don't be in love with someone else)
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone (please, don't have somebody waiting on you)
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew (please, don't be in love with someone else)
I was enchanted to meet you





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

I hope you're not already in love with someone else

And I hope that you're not dating someone who's waiting for you

The original "Enchanted" sounds like a teenage girl is expressing her feelings towards her crush , the innocence and agony is the main essence of this song 💜 but "Enchanted" Taylor's version sounds like a grown up woman who is expressing her love towards someone and this time the confession is bolder and more confident .💜💜 All I can say " I'm wonderstruck, nostalging all the way home " 😭 💜

@evalin3089

Exactly! The original version contains a little desperation that she can't have the one she crushed, feels she would finally have to hold these words and let the person go. This version feels more confident, brave, which is really "speak now"!

@thediaryofthewimpykidd

OMG YESS

@bite_meh

It felt like someone growing up
HAHAHA HOW IRONIC
