"Untouchable" as written by Cary Ryan Barlowe, Nathan Lamar Barlowe, Taylor Swift and Tommy Lee James....
Untouchable like
A distant diamond sky

I'm reaching out
And I just
Can't tell you why

I'm caught up in you
I'm caught up in you

Untouchable burning
Brighter than the sun
And when you're close
I feel like coming undone

In the middle of the night
When I'm in this dream
It's like
A million little stars
Spelling out your name
You gotta come on, come on
Say that we'll be together
Come on, come on
Little taste of heaven

It's half full
And I won't wait here
All day
I know you're saying
That you'd be here
Anyway

But you're
Untouchable burning
Brighter than the sun
Now that you're close
I feel like coming undone

In the middle of the night
When I'm in this dream
It's like
A million little stars
Spelling out your name
You gotta, come on, come on
Say that we'll be together
Come on, come on

In the middle of the night
Wakin' from this dream
I wanna feel you
By my side
Standing next to me
You gotta, come on, come on
Say that we'll be together
Come on, come on
Little taste of heaven

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
I'm caught
Up in you
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

It's your
Untouchable burning
Brighter than the sun
Now that you're close
I feel like coming undone

In the middle of the night
When I'm in this dream
It's like
A million little stars
Spelling out your name
You gotta come on, come on
Say that we'll be together
Come on, come on
Oh, oh

In the middle of the night
When I'm in this dream
It's like
A million little stars
Spelling out your name
You gotta, come on, come on
Say that we'll be together
Come on, come on
Come on

In the middle of the night
We can form this dream
I wanna feel you by my side
Standing next to me
You gotta, come on, come on
Say that we'll be together
Come on, come on
Little taste of heaven

    General CommentI know this is a cover song... but I like her version better so... To me, this song is basically about wanting someone that in theory is 'close' to you, or 'you have', but in reality you don't. You want the person so bad... but you know you can't have them. And once you realize that it's pointless, you try to move on before you're left heartbroken... but the plan gets washed away as soon as you see them, and once again, your left dreaming about something thats untouchable. So, like I said... in theory, this person is yours... and once you tell them that you can't just live with half a relationship and they don't feel the same way back they way they should, they tell you its not true. That if you leave they'll wait for you because they need you the same way too... but they never did nor will they ever. And once again, your left dreaming about something thats untouchable.

    General Commenti know this isn't the original, but taylor makes when it sounds as if it should be. it makes so much sense being sang this way, compared to the way it sounds when it's done by the original artis, luna halo. taylor swift is incredible.

    General CommentThis song helped me alot. My best friend asked me why i liked this one guy and i couldnt explain to her why. i still cant if im honest! But this song says it all. she doesnt know why she has fallen for him and cant explain why. its a mystery to her let alone everyone else yet she still dreams of him and wants him to be hers. just shows that not only one person feels like this

    General CommentShe gets co-writing credit on her version of this song and it's easy to see why: she gave it a completely different arrangement (and melody, in fact).

    Calling it a cover is a bit misleading because her writing and arranging skills are showcased on this track perhaps more clearly than anywhere else.

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song is about falling hard for someone you know in reality you can have. You try to forget about them and move on, but you always get caught up in him and fall even harder. I can defiently relate. Maybe it's about the same person as "Superstar", seeing that they are both sort of about the same thing? Regardless, it's a great song. Oerfect for slow-dancing. I haven't heard the original, but I LOVE Taylor's version, and she always does exceptional covers.

    General Commentthat was a beautiful interpretation of this song, shastt, i completely agree with you, im in a situation like that now, i hate it.

    I think its about a "you always want what you can have" kinda thing. She knows she wants him, and that she cant have him, but she really doesnt know why she wants him in the first place, "Can't tell you why, I'm caught up in you"...Because of the fact that he is "untouchable" makes her want him the most

    General Commentthis is so my sichuation! i love this this guy and he said he used 2 love me. and i am "close" to him and "have him" because he is my best guy friend. but he is in love with one of my other best friends and she loes him. the rule is to never date a friends ex so even when they break up i will never have him. it kills me to think about how much i love him. but he is completely untouchable forever. i will never get 2 kiss kim or hold him like he really is mine
