Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Enchanted. By Songfacts®.

This song finds Taylor Swift singing about meeting a guy she's attracted to without knowing if her instant infatuation is at all reciprocated. "That song is about pining away for if you're ever going to see someone again-walking away too early," she explained to Chris Willman of Yahoo! Music. "It was about this guy that I met in New York City, and I had talked to him on email or something before, but I had never met him. And meeting him, it was this overwhelming feeling of: I really hope that you're not in love with somebody. And the whole entire way home, I remember the glittery New York City buildings passing by, and then just sitting there thinking, am I ever going to talk to this person again? And that pining away for a romance that may never even happen, but all you have is this hope that it could, and the fear that it never will. I started writing that in the hotel room when I got back. Because it just was this positive, wistful feeling of: I hope you understand just how much I loved meeting you. I hope that you know that meeting you was not something that I took lightly, or just in passing. And I think my favorite part of that song is the part where, in the bridge, it goes to sort of a stream of consciousness of 'Please don't be in love with someone else/Please don't have somebody waiting on you.' Because at that moment, that's exactly what my thoughts were. And it feels good to write exactly what your thoughts were in a certain moment."

The guy in question had yet to hear the song at the time of Willman's interview, but Taylor added that she expects him to recognize that it's about their brief encounter when he does hear it, as she threw in a certain word to give him a clue. "Using the word 'wonderstruck' was done on purpose," she explained, referring to the line, "I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home." "Because that's a word which that person used one time in an email. And I don't think I've ever heard anybody use that term before, so I purposely wrote it in the song, so he would know."

Speak Now was not the original idea for the album title; at one point "Enchanted" was going to be the title track. Executive producer Scott Borchetta told Billboard magazine: "We were at lunch, and she had played me a bunch of the new songs. I looked at her and I'm like, 'Taylor, this record isn't about fairy tales and high school anymore. That's not where you're at. I don't think the record should be called 'Enchanted.'"
