"Head Over Feet" as written by Alanis Nadine Morissette and Glen Ballard....
I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it

You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience

You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long

I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

    General CommentI can't begin to tell what this song means to me. Two years ago, a good friend told me that he was in love with me. He likes this song a lot. Now I have turned the tables. Now I am in love with him. Now he also has a girlfriend. I'm not sure if he is still in love with me now because things have gotten a little shaky in the communication department, but whenever I hear this song, I think of him. That is only a tiny sliver of what this song means to me.

    General CommentThis song is so great. I love it. To me it means how he got her once, even though she was maybe scared of it, because she's scared of commitment, and then she says "don't be suprised if I fall, head over feet"...meaning she DOES like/love him, she's just unsure/scared. She's saying how that the guy she loves is her best friend and that he's always there for her... Reminds me of my and the guy in my life.. =]

    General CommentThis is my least favorite of her songs. The "friends with benefits" part sux the worst.
    Cos I don't know how anyone can do that and have an honst relationship with someone
    because it is CHEATING.

    General Commentthis song makes me so HAPPY for her. it paints love in a fantastic light and is one of the few songs where the person receiving the love really deserves it.

    General Commentyah i agree with catherineks this sond makes me happy for her its so simple yet magical ...if she is singing about a certain person she has had a relationship wit he is a lucky guy...its so positive and she phrases his qualities/everything she likes bout him soo well
