"Encantada" as written by Elizabeth Ardis Mitchell and Daniel Anton Littleton....
don't do it again
don't lose your head too quickly
you could pick up the phone
don't leave me all alone

i won't look for the worst
before i've even heard what you're trying to say
but words just get in the way

i know that it's late
we're much too tired to make sense
but i'll hold you up
will you hold me up

    General CommentOh my God, this song is absolutely beautiful. I can listen to it all day long. I just figured out the guitar chords to it, and I can't stop playing it.

    Anyway, to the meaning.....I kind of have a feeling that it's about a long relationship that is getting hard to hold on to.....they love each other but aren't getting along. In the first verse she's emphasizing that he's "lost his head" before, and that without him she feels alone (a clue to a long-running relationship).

    Then in the chorus she says words get in the way...as if they've gotten to the stage where they are so comfortable they don't even need to talk to each other. But I think she sees this as more a negative thing....like she knows they need to talk about it, but she knows they'll just end up fighting, so why speak at all?

    The last verse...oh how I love the end of this song...No matter what they'll hold each other up.

    This song makes me want to cry.

    General CommentThe songs speaker or person being soken to has been traped in their own mind for some time. It's about a person taking a wrong turn and retreating back into his or her own inner sanctom. Words don't help because neither person can explain what they have to say with words alone. One person offers to help the other have more faith. It is an attempt to overcome each others misperceptions.

    General CommentSorry for making another one of these useless and dumb comments, but there are some tracks on this record that are more cathy in the first moment. And though: If you listen to this song in an attentive way, you'll sit right in front of your screen like me driven to tears.
    This whole album and especially this song are beautiful. Not beautiful in a way Christina Aguilera express it or something. No, this song is beautiful. Honestly.
