Sparks Fly Lyrics

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 song is about loving someone that you can't have because they are with someone else...but every time you see them "sparks fly" and you want them to drop everything (or the person they are currently with). By doing that it would take away the pain of seeing them with the other person.

    I think this song is about her liking someone but knowing that she cant get him and that she has no chance but she trys anyways and feels hurt cuz its not getting her anywhere...

    This song is obviously very personal, about falling hard for someone. The way it's sung and the lyrics just sound like she's uncontrollably in love with this guy. She's wanting him so bad, and he might not be the best guy for her but she doesn't care, "My mind forgets to remind me you're a bad idea/You're the kind of reckless that should send me running but i kind of know that i won't get far." In the original lyrics, there is a line that says "Gonna strike this match tonight." and she talks about being in a bar. I think this song is describing a specific night in her life that's very special to her.

    I think that this song is about having feelings for somebody but not being sure if they feel the exact same way. Whenever I hear this song I think of my ex because I have such strong feelings for him but I dont think he wants what I want. I dont think he is as serious about it as I am so it should send me running yet I know im not going to go anywhere because I love him to much. She is an amazing song writer and is clearly very talented.

    Sparks fly is about the first perfect days when you are with the one you love. Whenever he smiles at you, your heart skips a beat, and you feel realy good, etc. All you really want is for him to "drop everything now, meet you in the pouring rain, kiss you on the sidewalk, and take away the pain." This song describes the feelings and thoughts that come to mind.

    This song is about a fan Taylor Swift met at a concert. Taylor did not know anything about him but felt "sparks fly" when she was near him. She says that he will know the song is about him because she uses phrases that he used when he met her.

    I always thought of this as her being in love with this guy but not wanting to take the jump because she's not sure how he really feels or he won't show enough love, 'I really wish you would, drop everything now...'

    We (L and R) think that this song is a very detailed yet vague and not obvious description of a girl (possibly Taylor Swift herself) doing "something" with a guy she really likes.

    it's a really old song that she wrote when she was 16 :) she changed the lyrics because...well she's grown up now. but whenever someone asked her what this song was about, she never said. she just smiled.

    I think it's about longing for someone but not sure yet if you wanna jump.

    This is about a long relationship which lasted a long time.
