"Can't Help Falling In Love" as written by Fitzgerald Scott and Lemar Obika....
Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you?

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you

    General Commentthe ultimate love song: about how love can't be conquered; it'll come for you, it'll take over you, it will never let you go

    General CommentMy mom used to sing this song to me when I was younger, so I agree with LMB228 about how it can be a universal song of affection rather than just for lovers. Its such a sweet song in the sense that its stated so simply, but so perfectly...the meaning is so clear, yet so profound: you don't find love, love finds you, and you have basically no choice but to accept it, whether it will end up being your death or or your life. Such a glorious song, I'm no huge Elvis fan, this is the only song I like by him, but still, its one of the best songs ever.

    General CommentThis was me and my last boyfriend's song. We were in his room, and I told him we needed a song. He said that the next song that came on the radio would be "our song," and this is what came next. Too perfect. It was ironic, too, because he told me he had feelings for me about six months before we got together. He had just broken up with a friend of mine and I just kept telling him he was rushing into something he wasn't ready for. But we ended up together. He was the best boyfriend I ever had, and everytime I hear this song, I think of how much we used to love each other. It is the perfect love song.

    General Commenti love this song! but what do you mean by conversation of the planet? i think it means that theres this person who he isn't supposed to love, but he does anyway, and this is like his 'confession'. I have no clue, just listen to the song!
