Sparks Fly Lyrics

on Amazon Music

The way you move is like a full-on rainstorm
And I'm a house of cards
You're the kind of reckless
That should send me running but I
Kinda know that I won't get far
And you stood there in front of me
Just close enough to touch
Close enough...

    This is a song about loving a boy who you aren't sure likes you back, but "sparks fly" whenever he's with you, meaning that you can feel the connection and chemistry between the two of you.

    First verse - (the way you move is like a full on rainstorm, and im a House of cards) means that they are complete opposites - he isn't afraid to do anything, but shes more fragile, and gets hurts more easily.

    (your the kind of reckless that should send me running, but I kinda know that I won't get far) means that he's not usually her type, but she's falling for him anyways

    (and you stood in front of me, just close enough to touch, close enough to hope you couldnt see what I was thinking of) pretty self explanatory, she doesnt really want him to find out she likes him

    Chorus - is saying that she wants him to be with her, and fill the longing that she has for him

    Verse two
    (my mind forgets to remind me your a bad Idea) he might not be the best guy for her, but she's falling for him anyways)

    (you touch me once, and it's really something) he touches her, and it makes her want more

    (you find I'm even better than you imagined I would be) he obviously thought that she wasn't that good for him either, but after getting to know her he realized she was actually pretty good

    (I'm on my guard for the rest of the world, but with you, i know it's no good) she is careful to make sure that she guards her heart carefully from other people, but she feels like this boy understands her enough to open her heart to him

    (and I could wait patiently, but I really wish you would ...)
    She COULD wait for him to ask her out, but what she REALLY wants, right now, is starting to get the best of her

    Verse three
    (I'll run my fingers through your hair ... Wont you whisper soft and slow) all the things she imagines them doing

    (Im captivated by you baby like a firework show) like a firework show, he never ceases to amaze her)

    i think this song is about a some guy she likes but she knows she shouldn't because she knows that she knows she is going to fall for him more than he will fall for her. So she holds on to very moment and every smile cause she feels "sparks fly" when he does. And all she wishes is that he will want what she wants from the relationship

    This song was written when she was 16, and when she's asked what it's about she simply smiles. Also Taylor Swift once said it was impossible for her to be pregnant, but she's never publicly promised to wait until she's married. In fact, she refuses to talk about sex or her virginity status.

    So with that and the lyrics, I definitely think it's about losing her virginity.

    Chemistry attraction heated feelings and a desire to be sexual with a guy who is happy wanting a reckless guy who she wants but doesnt want him to know her tru feelings

    She has a partner who is very different from her, however she loves him and wants him to care more about her and helps her with the pain. It's like he's not attentive and doesn't care about the love she has in her heart. She needs more physical contacts but he's very carefree. She knows that he's not a good match, but wants him to be hers.

    I think it's about a guy she likes but he just see's her as a friend, but he still cares about her a lot and she knows she can't have him because he's already with someone. I also think that whenever she see's him, she feels sparks fly between them because they're so close but she's still nervous about trusting him because someone might have let her down before.

    To be honest, I don't know what this song is about... I think that it's about her loving something from afar, and he's her friend, so she feels like she knows him... And she thinks that he doesn't love and/or like her, so she dreams about all this stuff that she wishes she could do with and have with him.

    this song is about being in love with someone who you shouldnt really be in love with because they're so different from you, but you fall for them anyways

    The song is about sex to put it simply. It's hinted more obviously in the originally version. It was changed to avoid being hounded by press and because some of the lyrics were questionable for a younger audience. In the original song it says "you say my name for the first time baby and I fall in love in an empty bar" which would be considered questionable. "So reach out open handed and lead me out to the floor. I don't need more paper lanterns. TAKE ME DOWN BRING ON THE MOVIE STAR" :O here comes more sexual references. "I run my fingers through your hair and watch the lights go out. Just keep your beautiful eyes on me gonna strike this match tonight. Lead me up the staircase won't you whisper soft and slow. I hate to love it but baby you make it like a firework show"

    I think this song is about being in love with a guy and knowing that he doesn't return the feelings and not caring anyway and living off the moments where he sees you and smiles.

    I think this song is about her falling for a guy hard, and him falling back, but her being hesitant because he's "The kind of reckless that should send me running, but I kinda know that I won't get far." Meaning that she knows that falling for him is dangerous, but she does anyway because he seems so right for her.

    When she says "Drop everything now" she means, never mind what people think. Risk it all anyway. Because of his bad boy status, many probably are against it. So it is sort of a forbidden love type of thing.

    It is an amazing song that I can totally relate to, and this is the interpretation to me.

    I believe'Sparks Fly' is about a girl who is falling for a guy but she knows she shouldn't because he doesn't feel the same way.

    I think this song is about someone falling hard for a guy and he has feelings back. But she is at the same time nervous about letting him in. And she sees "sparks fly" whenever he smiles, which just makes the song. It really is an adorable song i really relate to

    It's quite obviously about her lusting after someone (I heard Jake Owen, because she opened up for him in Portland way back when - http://www.countrymusicislove.com/2010/11/is-jake-owen-the-subject-of-taylor-swifts-sparks-fly.html and the lyrics would make sense) and wanting him to "make love", to put it bluntly I guess, with her. I don't mean to say it's a dirty song, it's not, but it definitely seems to be about wanting this man to get intimate with her. It's quite obvious by the following lines -

    “Drop everything now, meet me in the pouring rain, kiss me on the sidewalk, take away the pain. Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile. Get me with those green eyes, baby as the lights go down. Give me something that’ll haunt me when you’re not around”

    "I run my fingers through your hair
    And watch the lights go wild
    Just keep on keepin’ your eyes on me
    It’s just wrong enough to make it feel right
    And lead me up the staircase
    Won’t you whisper soft and slow
    I’m captivated by you baby
    Like a firework show"

    well some of you guys think its about LOVE but if you bought her album there is a secret message which is:PORTLAND,OREGON which she performed her Fearless Tour, "And you stood there in front of me just close enough the touch" she was describing the fans that were trying to touch her, she also describe another concert on Japan "Drop everything now, meet me in the puring rain" cause in a blog that i watched from here she said that even though it was raining hard the japaneses stayed there to watch and in the statement "im on my guard for the rest of the world, but with you i know it's no good" her guards were guarding but she really wanted to go to here fans because she treats them as friends

    hope this helps ;) (rate:P)
