Taylor Swift: Enchanted Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2010
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

This is my personal favourite from Speak Now, maybe together Last Kiss.It's believed to be about Adam Young (aka Owl City).
It's simply... a fairytale. Taylor managed to fill the lyrics and the music of this song with the magic and ecstatic feeling of a first encounter. You feel like flying, when you first meet someone who makes you feel alive after a long time - just like the first summer breeze of the year, it takes you by surprise and suddenly you feel good and you can't stop thinking about that person. You blush every time you remember their face or their voice, and you're not in love, but... you feel brand new, happy, somehow. Maybe you'll soon forget that feeling and that person will quickly fade in your mind, but you just know that it makes you feel right. All you can think about is that you'd spend hours talking to them,you're obsessed by the memory of every second you spent with them, and you feel like you should have said more.

It's about adam young and he replied on valentines with his version of the song "taylor I was enchanted to meet you too" .

I think this song is simply about a girl that met a guy at a party and they had a really amazing connection. When she left the party all she could think about was him. However, they never talked about if they liked each other or if they could be anything in the future, therefore she is afraid that maybe he has a girlfriend or that someone is waiting for him. So she wants to tell him how she feels and how enchanted she felt when she met him and she hopes that he feels the same way and does not forget about her and maybe they can have a chance in the future because he is the only person that has made her feel real again!

This song is about Adam Young(Owl City and FYI, Adam is Owl City it's not a band!) Taylor is singing about September 15, 2009, the day she met Adam in New York. She went to his concert(not a party or award ceremony.) They had been emailing each other for about 3 months so they thought it would be good to see each other. Apparently Adam was really quiet when they met(if your an Adam fan you know that he's shy)because when Taylor got back to her hotel she read one of his emails he just sent her saying "Sorry I was so quiet, I was just wonderstruck meeting you." That's why she used the word in the song.
Then when the album came out, Adam bought it on Itunes and decoded the messages and in her song Enchanted the message was his name. So on Valentines Day he replied to her with a cover of Enchanted(fixing the words so he'd be singing to her) and a love letter calling her a princess and all that cute stuff. Taylor didn't respond to him until her album Red came out( the song I Almost Do is about him, see my interpretation on this same website)
Oh, I guess you want to know how I know all this. Well, first I'm huge fans of them both so duh I want them together and second, I pieced all the story together with the info I already knew and the context clues like where he was performing in 2009(New York) and looking for the clothes t=he wore that night that's in the same pic he took with Taylor.
Sorry this was long!

it's like seeing someone for the first time but the face is quite familiar and the moment that you looked into each other's eyes...it's like a fast forwarded-slow motion. yeah, it sounds crazy. But you can't explain what you feel..and then blank stares come in.

I feel like Taylor has the ability to write songs that can take anyone back to a certain memory in their life. She wrote this song about Adam Young. It talks about that moment when a crush blossoms; the happiness and the anxiety you feel when you always wonder if the person likes you back. This song specifically takes me right back to the moment when I first saw my first crush. The flushing cheeks the thought process, everything. I love this song so much because it takes me back to these wonderful memories!

this song is one of my favorites. i think its about how a girl was feeling sad, depressed, not so happy, but when she saw this guy, those feelings disappeared.. ("vanished when i saw your face") then she keeps falling in love withhim and she was enchanted to meet him..but then she had to leave and wished she would've talked to him...get to know him more...

This song is about meeting Adam Young.(Owl City) Meeting a guy for the first time, and being so mezmorise by him, hoping you see him again. And how magical,the night was & you could of think he could be Prince Charming...
"There I was again tonight,
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place"Discribes living the same story, over again, and she is tired and bored about it.
"Walls of insincerity, Shifiting eyes and vancancy vanished when I saw your face" He caught her eyes. Love in first sight.
"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" describing, how he makes the first move.
"The playful conversation starts Counter all your quick remarks like passing notes n secrecy" They start talking, for the first time, and there so interested with each other.
"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 Chours: She's explaning, what she felt when she meet this guy. How magical, and how sparkly her night was, meeting Adam. Blushing afterwards, looking back and just smiling.
"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 It was enchanting to meet you" She is thinking late at night, wide awake, who does the guy like. And she just want to see him again.
"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"The feeling she felt meeting him, dancing and smiling because the night with him was magical. And she tells him don't forget, that night.
"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" She hopeing this is the beginning, not the end, she is mezmories by him, think about him, she wants to see him again. Saying in this song, they had little time, and she leaving too soon, but she tells him '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" She is hoping he is not in love with someone else, and dosent have someone waiting for him.
"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 Please don't have someone waiting for you"
Repeating: how she felt, and how magical it was meeting him. Hopeing he dosen't forget about her, and hopeing he is not in love with someone. Because she is Wonderstruck.

Taylor and Adam Young had been sending emails for a long time, and as she states in an interview, Adam used some words like "enchanted" and "wonderstruck", that she'd never heard before. Then they met IRL shortly after, and as the same interview says, "my immediate thought was 'please don't be in love with somebody else'." So Taylor wrote this song especially for Adam, a very sweet gesture that exercises my willpower as I try not to squeal. :3
Adam wrote his own version back that ended with the lyrics:
"I was never in love with someone else
I never had somebody waiting on me
‘Cause you were all of my dreams come true
And I just wish you knew
Taylor I was so in love with you."
That's something that always makes me squeal, no matter what :P And, according to the Speak Now lyric booklet, the hidden message is "ADAM".
So that's pretty much it.

Enchanted is like a storyline that we can all relate to. She met a guy who she feels is amazing, and the sparks flew between them instantly. Like all new crushes, she's giddy, excited, and ready to fall for him. She's on cloud nine, and everythings perfect; except for one little problem: she doesn't know if he likes her or someone else. During the song she says that she had a 'sparkling, flawless' night with him, and she was 'enchanted' to meet him', but he's been keep her wondering who he likes 'lingering question kept me up, two AM, who do you love? I wonder till im wide awake" says that this is an issue shes really concerned about. In the end, all she can do is hope that he's 'not in love with someone else' and doesn't have someone 'waiting on him'.

This song was writen for and about Adam Young (Owl City)
When they first met it was backstage at one of Adam's concerts, For months after their first meeting they regularly E-mailed. Though they were never really 'together' Taylor remembers in one of his emails, Adam uses the words, "Enchanted, and Wonderstruck" this song is a story of their first meeting and how it effected Taylor

The clue 'ADAM' speaks volumes at first but there's more. Wonderstruck is one of Adam Young's favourite words. Taylor Swift and Adam Young first met in New York and started emailing each other from then. As Adam is known to have insomnia, he probably sent her an email in the middle of the night, one which made her start to realize her feelings, therefore the line, "2AM, who do you love?". Swift is also an enthusiastic fan, once dancing at Owl City's concert.
