  • 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 wonder struck, 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
    Two a.m., 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 wonder struck, 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 wonder struck, 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 wonder struck, 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 wonder struck, 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

  • AnonymousThis song is so enchanting
  • Nataliya from PakistanDid Taylor ever respond to the cover of 'enchanted' by Adam Young? If not then why? Why has anybody not asked her anything regarding in any interview?
  • Beck from San Marcos, TxTaylor has the knack to draw out emotions that I ordinarily keep hidden. The last part always gets me.
  • Joel from Agoura Hills, CaI find this song really hard to listen to these days. :(
