Estoy loca
Enamorada, de ti

It seemed to be like the perfect thing for you and me
It's so ironic you're what I had pictured you to be
But there are facts in our lives
We can never change
Just tell me that you understand and feel the same
This perfect romance that I've created in my mind
I'd live a thousand lives
Each one with you right by my side
But yet we find ourselves in a less than perfect circumstance
And so it seems like we'll never have the chance

Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny (Oh)
And you can't move on even though you try (Oh)
Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel
Oh, I wish this could be real
Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life (Oh)
And you don't want to face what's wrong or right (No)
Ain't it strange how fate can play a part
In the story of your heart

Sometimes I think that a true love can never be
I just believe that somehow it wasn't meant for me
Life can be cruel in a way that I can't explain
And I don't think that I could face it all again
I barely know you but somehow I know what you're about
A deeper love I've found in you
And I no longer doubt
You've touched my heart and it altered every plan I've made
And now I feel that I don't have to be afraid

Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny (Oh)
And you can't move on even though you try (Oh)
Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel
Oh, I wish this could be real
Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life (Oh)
And you don't want to face what's wrong or right (No)
Ain't it strange how fate can play a part
In the story of your heart

I locked away my heart
But you just set it free
Emotions I felt
Held me back from what my life should be
I pushed you far away
And yet you stayed with me
I guess this means
That you and me were meant to be

Oh

Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny
And you can't move on even though you try
Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel
Oh, I wish this could be real, oh yeah, oh yeah
Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life
And you don't want to face what's wrong or right, no no
Ain't it strange how fate can play a part
In the story of your heart, oh yeah

Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny (Funny)
And you can't move on even though you try (Even if you try)
Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel
Baby, ain't it funny how
Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life (Change your life)
And you don't want to face what's wrong or right (Wrong or right)
Ain't it strange how fate can play a part
Baby, ain't it funny how

Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny (Can't deny)
And you can't move on even though you try (though you try)
Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel (baby)
Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life
And you don't want to face what's wrong or right
Ain't it's strange how fate can play a part

Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny
And you can't move on even though you try
Ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel
Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life
And you don't want to face what's wrong or right
Ain't it strange how fate can play a part

    General CommentNot sure what the comments above are supposed to be about, but to me this song represents someone who has always been fearful of falling in love, and they finally meet somebody. And at first, she's afraid to give in because of everything in the past ("Ain't it strange when your feeling things you shouldn't feel "), but she can't explain all these feelings and is overcome by them ("Oh, I wish this could be real").

    I can sadly relate to this song a LOT!

    General Commenti agree that this song is about both people having feelings for one another but are totally unable to do anything about it. the circumstances all go against them and no matter how many times she tries to stay away from him he always seems to come back into her life and sets her free,away from all these worries.

    General CommentA fantastic song!! one of her best!! great, great lyrics!! I love it how her story becomes more positive as the song goes on. I can definitely relate to this song.. being so fearful of love, fearful of letting someone in.. sharing thoughts, dreams and feelings. Love the clip to this song - she looks absolutely beautiful - the best i've ever seen her look.
    This is a very special song. It will always have a place in my heart.

    General CommentI think that this song is basically about two people who are in love and its like a romeo and juliet forbidden love story. they both love each other but their love is forbidden they know that they cant be together but they will never stop loving each other, she feels that he is the only person that she can let into her life and drop her barriers to but there is circumstances that mean they cant be together.

    General Commentthis song is about soul mates and destiny and how after thousands of past lives together they finally live in this lifetime and in a less than certain circumstance there wall just came crashing down, and they cant change certain facts because they grew up to be different people although she doesnt know him she knows what hes about because there is something familiar about him and its funny which is the title because perhaps behind all the logic the emotions and feelings dont lie they cant move on its impossible because the love is their hearts, she has been picturing the romance before perhaps in her dreams and it came true and when she methim her walls came crashing down feelings she couldnt deny , perhaps it all felt like a dream, i think its a beautiful song which speaks of the truth of true love and soul mates and fate... ROCK ON J LO

    My InterpretationThis is about forbidden love:
    The obstacle (which, by the way, is a condition for falling in love!) is too big:
    'there are facts in our lives we can never change'
    'we find ourselves in a less than perfect circumstance
    and so it seems like we'll never have the chance'

    Thus, the feelings are forbidden:
    'feeling things you shouldn't feel'
    'you don't want to face what's wrong or right'
    'Emotions I felt' (falling in love;'Enamorada') 'held me back from what my life should be' (she should have a life without him)

    And the perfectness of her feelings is ironic:
    'It's so ironic you're what I had pictured you to be'

    She despairs about love in her life:
    'a true love can never be'
    'I just believe that somehow it wasn't meant for me'
    'Life can be cruel'
    'I don't think that I could face it all again' (any future love)

    She lives this love only in her head:
    She has romantic fantasies
    'This perfect romance that I've created in my mind'
    'I'd live a thousand lives' (in her mind, that is)
    'I wish this could be real'

    The love isn't spoken out, yet:
    'Just tell me that you understand' (that the obstacle is too big)
    'and feel the same'

    She's stuck to him, though she knows better:
    'you can't move on even though you try'
    'fate can play a part in the story of your heart'
    'I pushed you far away and yet you stayed with me' (in her heart)

    Beautiful song!
