Never want to stand upon myself
Never want to get in the way, I said it
I don't know what the plan is
But you can share with me
Cause I'll be listening ear
To everything you say I won't turn away
And I'll listen open up my heart
And I must say that I love you

Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than ever before
Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than I've ever known

Every day is a battle I face
Strange life I live
But it’s what you've decided
I give it all into your hands
Do what you will with me
And I'll I smile when you speak
Remember all those times
I was hoping for something?
And shaking my head
From all that I've done
But you never left me

Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than ever before
Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than I've ever known

Give it up for you
I would give it up for you
Give it up for you
I’d do anything for you

Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than ever before
Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than I've ever known

Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than ever before
Ooooh la love
I’ve fallen in love
and it’s better this time than I've ever known

I have fallen in love
I have fallen in love

    Lyric CorrectionThis is one of my favorite songs on the album and I'm sad that it's words are the worst interpreted! D:
    I got this off the lyrics book :D


    Never want to stand upon myself
    Never want to get in the way… I said it
    I don't know what the plan is, but you can share with me
    ‘Cause I'll be listening ear to everything you say
    I won't turn away and I'll listen
    Open up my heart and I must say that I love you

    Ooooh la love, I’ve fallen in love
    and it’s better this time than ever before
    Ooooh la love, I’ve fallen in love
    and it’s better this time than I've ever known

    Every day is a battle I face
    Strange like I live, but it’s what you decided
    I give it all into your hands
    Do what you will with me and I'll I smile when you speak
    Remember all those times I was hoping for something?
    And shaking my head from all that I've done
    But you never left me

    Give it up for you
    I would give it up for you
    I’d do anything for you

    I have fallen in love

    General CommentI felt that this song was someone who has given up all of his individuatlity (never want to stand up for myself, never want to get in the way) and personal life to be with one person.

    He genuinely believes that this is the person for him, probably since he hasnt been in any less abusive reationships (better this time, than ever before) and because she must have stayed by his side at one downpoint in his life (and shaking my head from all i had done, but you never left me)

    he's deluded himself so much that he'd "do anything for you" ANYTHING....
    Yes, its sweet, but this is definetly a messed up relationship, one of the darkest songs on the album...

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I thought he was singing "Ooh la la, Apple and a Nug." And I was like, "hell yeah man."

    General Comment"Every day is a battle I face
    Strange life i live but its what You've decided
    I’ll give it all into your hands,
    Do what You will with me, and oh
    I’ll smile when you speak
    Remember all those times I was hoping for something
    And shaking my head from all I have done
    But You never left me"


    I think this is one of those songs that's secretly about God, just like the song Love by Musiq Soulchild.

    General CommentI believe it is about his love for God, not a school-girl crush as some have mentioned.

    In the beginning it says, "I don't know what the plan is; But you can share with me"
    He is referring to God's plan for him. He then says, "I give it all into your hands.
    Do what you will with me." Again, he is trusting God, and God's plan.

    "And shaking my head from all that I've done; But you never left me." Not exactly a new crush he has, as this person (being) has never left his side, and has been with him forever.

    "I've fallen in love, and it's better this time then I've ever known." He has found God's love, and is comparing it to the love a a girl; stating that God's love is that strongest of all.

    That's my guess! =) FTP <3

    General Commentahh just love this song so much, can't get enough of FOSTER THE PEOPLE, really cant. Incredible talent!

    I see this song as a guy/girl looking at a certain someone who they're just inevitably falling for, seeing as they 'never left' them whilst they've been trying to get through some shit. Now they're falling in love and its better than before, suggesting they've already been in and come out of a relationships (which perhaps hasn't ended so well) so this is truly something special which makes them 'smile when you speak' so 'together and forever' it is! They're feeling hope again, love again!
