Taylor Swift – Enchanted lyrics
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 it's 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 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
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 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 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

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

    This song makes me think of when you go on you meet a guy and you know right away that there's something special abut him. But your not sure if he feels the same way and you don'are know if he's seeing someone or not so when you give him your number your hoping he will call and say that he was enchanted to meet you. Like it's written. I love this song!

    For me I guess This tells on how each of us has a time when all you feel is total loneliness, insecurities and isolation but changes even for a brief time when we meet someone you haven't met before and can't help feeling wonder and be-wilderness. The feeling of connection of someone who is total stranger yet familiar. They make you questioned how this is, when this all happens so fast.

    Another thing is you don't wanna forget. You don't ever wanna forget and hopes you'll met her/him again and fell once more to the capturing enchantment of magic that once flowed to you before and wished that he/she doesn't have anybody else.

    I think this song is about a girl, who was once falling apart, full of insecurties, until she met this boy who changed her perspective on things. He not only changed the way she felt about love, but changed her as a person. She wanted that moment to last forever. She had never met anyone who had ever made her felt that way. It was a new chapter in her life. The connection she had with him was unlike any other. It was an amazing feeling. She hopes that he doesn't have anyone else.

    A girl is lonely and she's unhappy but then she spots a boy. They instantly fall in love. He walks over to her and they start to talk. She thinks that it was 'enchanting' to meet him because it felt almost magical. She's absolutely crushing and he never leaves her mind. She stays up all night thinking about him. She will think about him until she sees him again. She prays that he's not in love with someone else and that she won't have to wait for him. She is wonderstruck, absolutely awestruck!

    This is a song that taylor swift wrote and sang about adam young (owl city). They had met for the first time, and afterward, taylor swift was enchanted to meet him. (: adam sang this song back to her, adding taylor to the lyrics. Basically, the whole time on the way to her meeting with him, taylor swift couldn't stop wondering if adam had a girlfriend or loved someone. After meeting him, taylor rushed home to write this song. :)

    I don't know but this song is just so candid and sweet at the same time. The only problem is I might have never met the guy who enchants me. Or, perhaps I did. It's just that I could never say the words. The song just did. I like the line that says: "please don't be in love with someone else, please don't have somebody waitin' on you. " I just wish I could just say this in person. Whoever might that guy be.

    She's trying to hide her pain in the beginning. She feels encolsed. She sees his face everywhere, their eyes met as he walked towards her, they start a conversation. Old scool love such as passing notes begins. She feels that the night is just right and perfect. She's worried. "who do you love? " this question keeps popping up, she stays up all night thinking about this dreaming that you'd be at her door with an answer. She prays that this has only begun, all she thinks about is; you, you, you, you. She holds back what she really feels. "please, don't be in love with someone else! " she is enchanted, not only to meet you, but the pleasure to fall desperately in love with you.

    Enchanted. Magical. Like a fantasy.
    She was enchanted by him. It was magical, like a fantasy. An almost perfect story.
    It started by her oww so boring, full of well played acts, the ever so lonely life of hers. Well not until her gaze met his. Then it all started. Her hopes got high. Kept on wondering. Praying that the feeling is mutual. That he feels the same as hers. That it was not only her. The story doesn't ended there. But song was. So it's up to you now.
    That's the song, for me.

    This song reminds me of my friend that I meet 2 years ago, I was talking to my friend next to me and I turn to look at her but then I saw him and he saw me and our eyes meet! Then like 2 days later he sat behind us and we started talking and I started to have feelings for him, how he looked at me wen we would talk. When my friend would talk he would look at her but then back to me. But I haven't seen him since last year.

    I love it! All the time I am singing it and it makes me feel so relaxed and happy to be the way that I am. I even sang it at our office work song concert and I won 1 st place! It was so cool winning, the contest and winning the respect of everybody in the office. They all call me enchanted girl now just for singing a beautiful and absolutely wonderful song. So this song changed my reputation in the office. Incredible. Your probably getting bored by reading this now so I will not go on much longer! I just want to get into the awesome level which I have just done. By the way my name is Amina Wray and I live at 36 Torrington avenue in tile hill in coventry! Well I will stop writing now because my dinner is ready but if you need any thing just come round and say hello to everybody because I am having a party on the 17 December 2013! Please come!

    To me it means when you're there and youve been lonely for a while and suddenly this guy or girl shows up and you know instantly that his is the person you've been looking for. The sad thing about it is it was for only one night and leaving you realize you might never see that person again and your up all night replaying it over and over and if there is one thing to be happy about its that you had an amazing or enchanting time with this person.

    She was in a place that she might have disliked, or even was just bored. She didn't want to be with the people she was with, until she sees this boy's face. That means everything. He changes everything that place means to her, and they become friends. She says "please don't be in love with someone else, please don't have some waiting on you" because she's in love with him and she doesn't want to lose him.

    Enchanted is about a boyfriend taylor had. Months before they first met, they had conversed by email (i forget his name d:) but after the two met, taylor was. Enchanted by him. ;) she wrote this song as she worried about whether or not he was already in love with someone else and even incorporated the word "wonderstruck" into her song. Allegedly, the man had emailed her after they met and wrote "i was wonderstruck at meeting you. " the song is full of hope for love. :)

    Enchanted is a song that we should dream high for the person we love even though its possible for us to meet them, in my story, I love the meaning of this song because I'm still inlove with a person which I didn't know seriously. But till the end, I was hoping that in the very soon, if destiny wants. I just want to reflect how happy I am for a reason that I was enchanted to meet him :)

    I will forever love you. Although, I can't find the courage to tell you that and will someday regret for my whole entire life. But at least I'm brave enough to admit to myself that I love you. People ask me why do I still love you after all this years, I said I don't know. I still don't know why. There's so many guys I can choose from but somehow you're the only one I love. I only have your picture to hold on to. I only have one conversation that we had to remember. It maybe just only thing I have in people's eyes. But to me it's a magical moment that I have to help me remember you. At least it's better than nothing. At least even if other's may doubt my love for you, this is the reason I have to remind me of why I will always love you.

    Hmmm. I love this song, it's the story of my life right now. Okay, so I went on this like "church youth retreat" thing, and I almost didn't go. So glad I did, because it was really life-changing.
    One night, I met carl. And he started the conversation. It was the most intelligent conversation I think I have ever had with anyone, despite it's too-short length. It just totally blew my mind. I mean, I honestly didn't know boys were even capable of. Well. Intelligence. It was. Enchanting.
    But it was only for one weekend and now I'm home. But I just can't get him, or our conversation out of my head. It's all I think about. And, I wonder, because it was so short, of it effected him the same way. Is he thinking about me too? Now I'm even starting to wonder if it even happened at all. It seems too good to be true, so does that mean it isn't?

    I was enchanted to meet this one guy. We were friends and we talked all the time, every chance we got. We went out after a while, but he broke my heart a little over a month after we got together. A few weeks later we got back together. I broke up with him a little over a week after we got back together again (i didn't do it for revenge, I did it because we didn't talk the whole time. We only talked like two times). Now, we don't talk at all and it just breaks my heart. I only text him because we go to seperate schools. He's in high school, I'm in middle school. I hope we will start to talk again soon. It totally makes me sad to not be friends with him again, like before.
    This song, to me, is about a girl who is happy to have met this guy she like fell in love with when she first met him. She just really loves him and hopes he feels the same about her. She hopes that he doesn't love anyone because she wants him.

    Omg this song is my story. I had a crush on this amazing boy, everyone said he liked me too, but we acted like we hated eachother. We went to a dance and whenever I saw his face I disapeared, when he found me we talked. Over summer I had to move and I never got to say how I felt to him or goodebye. I miss you mason s.

    This song touched my heart in countless ways I cannot fathom to describe them.
    When I first heard this, I instantly thought about meeting my crush at an award ceremony last may. Now we're the best of friends and as close as siblings :) sadly, I am in love with him and don't know what to do! I was so wonderstruck to meet him and still am, even after all this time.

    This song makes me feel like I am in a fairytale and takes me back 3 years ago. I reminds me of my experience with a boy who made me feel lightheaded and thinking about him at night. I wished that adam knew how I felt, because I never told him. After 2 years he left and I hope you tell that person how you feel, because it may just change things. I've learnt that it's better to take risks.

    "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 swift.

    It reminds me of someone that I really likethis song really fits me!. ;) it started when I saw a guy on my way home on a jeepney ride. And as days goes by we still got the chance to ride the same jeepney every saturday night. Our eyes always met and keep staring at each other always asking myself "have we met? " by that time I already knew. But I hope i'll meet him soon. I'm enchanted to meet youu!.; ">

    Honestly, I think enchanted is about meeting, 'him' for the first time. There's automatically that spark, that connection. Because I'm a fangirl, I imagine it as cainexdiana for gone (amazing series if you haven't read it). He just sorta, draws you in, and you can't help but be amazed by him, he takes your breath away. That's kinda what I think enchanted is about. Being complete head over heels for someone, after only meeting once. =d

    My meaning of enchanted is a girl who has fell in love with a boy. She is constantly thinking about him and wonders if maybe he might have the same feelings. She dreams about him coming to her and telling her that he loves her and she really want it to happen in real life. She constantly worries that there may be somebody else that he loves and that its not her. She was touched by the love of her life and she wants him to touch her back and be with her.

He send me a text: ') we talk like it was our first conversation: ') thanks god, he has no girlfriend yet and me too: ')

    It means that you and your crush might fall in love with each other; I fell in love with my current crush after we met. After talking to him, I was thinking, "i'm so in love with him. Not the other guy. " I was enchanted to fall in love with him. I didn't think I'd fall in love with him and the other guy at the same time. I think if you liked 2 guys at once, it'd be awkward to tell the two guys you have crushes on both of them! Enchanted is such a wonderful song :) amazing job taylor! #Swag.

    I think it is just about love at first sight really. Fate. How fate effects us and how we think. In seeing the person we believe it was fate to meet, we would try to hope that they don't have someone else and that it really is fate. Also, that they would feel this song. I find this really relevant, I saw a guy at a party and I was honestly enchanted to meet him. I don't know if it will work out, but, my fate might not be to end up with him, if that is the case, then I am ok with that.

    This song is about Adam Young from Owl City. In her album packet thingy the secret messge in those lyrics says adam. Then like a month ago, Adam Young made a response to the song. It's a cover of Taylor's "Enchanted", but with minor changed lyrics with Taylor's name included in the lyrics. He sings, "Oh, Taylor I was so enchanted to meet you too". Don't believe me? YouTube it!

    @drei171385 It's not merely another love at first sight song, I can relate to it completely, it actually feels as if somehow, Tayswift knew how I felt and wrote it. It's about when you first meet a wonderful person, and suddenly you don't know how exactly you feel. He makes you excited, but. Is it possible? Could he be the love you will have to hold forever?
    Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes and vacancy. -That's what every other relationship was before you met him-. Vanished when I saw your face.
    2 am who do you love. -Is he your one and true love? Is it just a crush? Or is it nothing as it seems?
    Please don't be in love with some one else. -So that maybe, just maybe, I could be with you, so you could love me.
    "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." if you look carefully at the phrasing, this describes that the she never really got the chance to tell him that, well, she was Enchanted.

    I think this is a song about a girl who meets a boy at a party. She's insecure at first, trying to be polite with the guests but she's faking it all. Then her eyes meet with this boy from across the room. They flirt, and eventually she can't stop thinking about him. He's completely taken over her mind, but she has to leave. She hopes he's not in love with someone else. She later realized, she was enchanted or "destined" to meet him all along.

    I had a baby for a very special couple and every time I hear this song it reminds me of the first time I seen the baby and how you felt about meeting her soon to be parents. To this day (it's been 2 years now) I still feel like I did the day everything happened when I delivered my first born. It's was simply enchanting I guess you could say. :)

    Enchanted is about a distrusting girl who was lonely in the inside, but didn't appear to be on the outside. This girl falls in love with a guy because of a comfortable conversation they had. Then, after the conversation ends, she leaves "blushing all the way home". She keeps wondering if he knew how enchanting it was to meet him and said she would spend forever thinking about it. She then stays up and still is wondering at 2am if he loves someone or not. She wishes that he were at her door right now so he could tell her "it was enchanting to meet you". She keeps hoping that he's not in love with someone else.

    I agree with most, this song is about meeting someone that seems to stand out of the crowd, someone that for somereason has caught your eye. They seem perfect, no matter how different or strange they may be their perfect. (at least you hope) Then you remember you don't know a thing about them, if their taken, in love with someone else, for all you know this may be the only time you ever see them but no matter what youll never forget them becasue you were Enchanted to meet them.

    It means. To be entranced by someone. Having the feeling, of whenever you're around them, you get butterflies; you blush; you smile when you see them. "i was enchanted to meet you", as in I wouldn't have known love if I hadn't met you. Life gives a meaning, when you think of the song, enchanted, meaning I never would have known love, if it wasn't for you. Enchanted isn't just a song. It's magic that I see within. It makes it feel like love is worth it. When you think it isn't, listen to "enchanted" and you'll feel whole again. This is the perfect song for love.
