"Accidentally In Love" as written by and Adam/vickrey Duritz....
So she said what's the problem baby
What's the problem I don't know
Well maybe I'm in love (love)
Think about it every time
I think about it
Can't stop thinking 'bout it

How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love)
Makes me want to turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love

Come on, come on
Turn a little faster
Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on
'Cause everybody's after love

So I said I'm a snowball running
Running down into the spring that's coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

Well baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn't mean to do it
But there's no escaping your love

These lines of lightning
Mean we're never alone,
Never alone, no, no

Come on, come on
Move a little closer
Come on, come on
I want to hear you whisper
Come on, come on
Settle down inside my love

Come on, come on
Jump a little higher
Come on, come on
If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on
We were once upon a time in love

We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love
Accidentally in love
Accidentally in love
Accidentally in love

Accidentally in love
Accidentally in love
Accidentally in love

Accidentally

I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love,
Accidentally
I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love,
Accidentally

Come on, come on
Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on
And the world's a little brighter
Come on, come on
Just get yourself inside her

Love I'm in love

    General Commentalot of people are saying its uncharachsteristic of the counting crows, that is doesn't sound like them and it isn't something they would usually write about, and I agree with that. But I think thats what makes this song so great, is that it isn't typical of them, and love can do that to all people. Don't get me wrong I love the crows, but most of their music is on the sadder, more deeper side of things, where this song is expressing emotions of love in the most plain and simple ways. When your in love, it can catch you off guard- you don't want to fall in love - but it happens. Love makes you ridiclously happy,you forget about any problems it ever might of given you before. You go around with the biggest grin on your face for no reason at all, and thats what this song does to me!

    General CommentThis song is so simple and so, so true. Falling in love is such an accident, well, a good one, but an accident no less. This song is just emphasizing that. The tune is adorable and upbeat, and Shrek 2 (this song was recorded for the soundtrack) was so. fucking. funny.

    General CommentThere are a lot of comments out there about the corny-ness of this song. Sure its corny, but you can't appreciate the non-corny stuff without the corny stuff, and occasionally a corny song like Accidently in Love will come out and turn into a sensation of enjoyment everytime you hear the beginning. The lyrics are trite yet fresh and genious at the same time. Its the typical love song twisted and spun just enough to be unique without being over-done.

    General CommentHaha... angelofsilences... you're right. This is really uncharacteristic of them. But hey, it's a cute song. Really catchy. I like it. Think of this as Adam at a point of pure joy, a moment where he forgets all the doubt that he usually writes about, and just takes a second to enjoy what he has. I'm sure he's had moments like that.

    General CommentI agree with fireplace cuz when u fall in love with someone it's an accident, and usually a good one. It's a great song.

    General CommentI really do like this song, although it's not something you could see CC really doing. If you're not sure what I mean, let's put it this way: dude, my parents listen to counting crows. But I still love them. This is very different but it's sweet, upbeat, and something everyone can enjoy needless to say.

    General Commentso what if this song is different to the stuff they usually put out! Hey, we'd get a little bored if they put out the same stuff over and over again. This is an awesome song and the crows are the greatest band ever.
