"When did you fall" as written by and Christopher M. Rice....
You're all smiles and silly conversation
As if this sunny day came just for you
You twist your hair, you smile, and you turn your eyes away
C'mon, tell me what's right with you
Now it dawns on me probably everybody's talkin'
And there's something here I'm supposed to realize
'Cause your secret's out, and the universe laughs at its joke on me
I just caught it in your eyes, it's a beautiful surprise

When did you fall in love with me?
Was it out of the blue
'Cause I swear I never knew it
When did you let your heart run free?
Have you been waiting long?
When did you fall in love with me?
When did you fall in love?

Make your way over here, sit down by this fool, and let's rewind
C'mon, let's go back and replay all our scenes
You can point out the hints, the clues, the twists and the smiles this time
All the ones that slipped by me
I bet my face is red, and you can hear my heart poundin'
Well I guess it don't matter now that I realize
'Cause baby I missed it then, but I can surely see you now
Right here before my eyes
You're my beautiful surprise

When did you fall in love with me?
Was it out of the blue
'Cause I swear I never knew it
When did you let your heart run free?
Have you been waiting long?
When did you fall in love with me?
When did you fall in love?

Was it at the coffee shop
Or that morning at the bus stop
When you almost slipped, and I caught your hand
Or the time we built the snowman
The day at the beach, sandy and warm
Or the night with the scary thunderstorm
I never saw the signs
Now we've got to make up for lost time
And I can tell now by the way that you're looking at me
I'd better finish this song so my lips will be free

Have you been waiting long, when did you fall in love
I kept you waiting so long, when did you fall
Have you been waiting long
When did you fall in love with me
When did you fall in love?

    General CommentI heard this song for the first time last night when I was driving, it's a very sweet song. I love the jazzy feel to it, and I gotta say many people can relate to this song.

    It's basically about two friends who like each other but yet only just one is one of them realizing that the other feels the same way.

    I love the line "C'mon tell me, what's right with you?" I think it's just so great of a line. And equating the whole "okay when did this happen" verse like watching a movie and pointing out the little hints and stuff is just great.

    Yeah I like this song a lot.

    General CommentIt's about that first romance. The innocence in it all, and the fun that goes along with the beginning of someone special.

    I heard this song one day on tv and it spoke to my heart. So I looked it up: And what do you know! One of my favorite singers apparently appeared back in my life. Ever since then, Chris Rice has been my favorite Christian artist.

    General CommentThis song honestly has a great feel to it. Almost like butterflies. No, it's more than butterflies. It's freaking pterodactyls!!! =D To me, it's a song of the future. One day he will see that I love him and He will just think "wait...what? When did this happen?" Ah I love it =]
