"Stoppin' The Love" as written by Tommy Danvers and Katie Tunstall....
So you think it's funny
That you keep calling me all of the time every day
Oh, honey, don't want to be following
And falling behind if you're gonna be walking away
And I don't know why I wouldn't follow

You got me looking up even when I'm falling down
You got me crawling out of my skin
You got me wondering why I am underneath this big old sky
Stopping the loving getting in

Now you say it's easy
That you been falling for all of my charm
And getting lost in my smile
Never ceases to amaze me
When I'm pinching my arm
And I still do it with style
And now I hope you'll be with me tomorrow

You got me looking up even when I'm falling down
You got me crawling out of my skin
You got me wondering why I am underneath this big old sky
Stopping the loving getting in

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song, it’s my favorite. I have Rhapsody and they have a live Rolling Stone Original album with this song, black horse and a cherry tree, other side of the world, & Miniature disasters on it! I totally recommend checking it out. I think it’s about a girl who has been hurt in the past & is afraid to trust again, but this guy’s not giving up on her. She’s falling fast, but is afraid to act on her feelings cause she’s scared that he won’t stick around for long . She knows she’s in deep and tries to resist him but when she’s with him, she feels wonderful & wonders why she’s resisting him at all.

    General CommentMy favorite line is: You got me looking up, Even when I'm falling down.

    I wish the song was about hope and inspiration...because this line is a great start. I interpret it as saying: "Even though everything has gone to hell, you still manage to help me look up and give me hope"

    I might have to steal this line for a song *wink*

    General Commenti think though...[listening to it now] instead of
    "when I'm pinching my arm
    and I still do it with style"

    isn't it:
    "when i'm chancing my arm
    that i still do it with style"
    ...?

    General CommentThis song caught my attention right away. The track, without vocals, is so laid back, that it reminds me of myself. This song to me means just what rubygirl18 described it as. This is my favorite song!
