"Enchanted" de Taylor Swift

"Enchanted" es la canción que más me ha gustado de Taylor Swift hasta la fecha, es simplemente preciosa, con una letra tan bonita, que se ha convertido en una de mis canciones favoritas.
La propia artista ha declarado que:
Compuse "Enchanted" pensando en un chico con el que me quedé encantada al conocerlo, obvio. Es un chico con quien me he enviado un par de correos, y por entonces estaba en Nueva York y quedé para conocerlo. Recuerdo que de camino a casa no paraba de pensar: "Espero que no esté enamorado de ninguna". Era una sensación magnífica. En plan: "Ay, Dios. ¿Con quién estará? ¿Le gustaré? ¿Le gustará otra chica? ¿Qué significa todo esto?" Cuando llegué a casa vi que me había escrito un correo, y decía algo así como: "Siento haber estado tan callado. Me he quedado alucinado al conocerte". Así que adapté esa expresión en la canción: "Eh, este es el chico adecuado para ti".



"Enchanted"
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

(Chorus 1)
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
Now I'm pacing back and forth
Wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say
It was enchanting to meet you
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you

(Chorus 2)
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

(Chorus 2)
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
