Head over Feet

Yesterday I heard a song on the radio that I had not heard for absolutely ages. A song that I used to hear day in and day out while in college, a song that I used to know all the words of, a song that I felt I wanted to identify with, a song that I felt one day would hold true for me. Well, on hearing it, I realized that everything it stood for, everything I wanted at the time when I used to hear it had come true, slipping into my life so silently but surely without me even realizing it. The song was Alanis Morisette's Head over Feet.

Here are the words to it:

I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your choice time and again
I thought about it

You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service

You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience

You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long

I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now

You've already won me over in spite of me
Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault
