Before I fall too fast
Kiss me quick
But make it last ooh ooh
So I can see how badly this will hurt me
When you say goodbye

Keep it sweet
Keep it slow
Let the future pass
And don't let go
But tonight I could fall too soon
To this beautiful moonlight

But your so hypnotizing
You've got me laughing while I sing
You've got me smiling in my sleep
And I can see this unraveling
Your love is where I'm falling
But please don't catch me

See this heart
Won't settle down
Like a child running scared from a clown
I'm terrified of what you do
My stomach screams just when I look at you

Run far away
So I can breathe
Even though your far from suffocating me
I can't set my hopes too high
Cause every hello ends with a goodbye

But your so hypnotizing
You've got me laughing while I sing
You've got me smiling in my sleep
And I can see this unraveling
Your love is where I'm falling
But please don't catch me

So now you see
Why I'm scared
I can't open up my heart without a care
But here I go
It's what I feel
And for the first time in my life I know it's real

But your so hypnotizing
You've got me laughing while I sing
You've got me smiling in my sleep
And I can see this unraveling
Your love is where I'm falling
So please don't catch me

If this is love, please don't break me
I'm giving up
So just catch me

    It's about a girl tring to let go.. So before she do that she did what she need to do so that she won't be regretting it in the end.. But even though she tried to let go she can't because she is still in love with the guy.. And after all that she's done to forget the guy she still ended up falling back again with the guy.. D(^. ^)b

    Demi wrote this song alone in a hotel room by herself. This is one of a couple songs on Demi's record that she wrote by herself.

    I love this song. Definitely a future single! She wrote this one all by herself in her bedroom. I'm glad Disney let her put it on the CD.

    The girl is in love with the boy, and she knows she's falling more and more in love with him, but she's still holding on and not letting herself fall too much in love. But in the end she gives up and lets herself fall.

    Very clever lyrics, especially the chorus. I like "Run far away/So I can breathe/Even though you're far ffrom suffocating me."

    Don't underestimate the Disney Diva. When you look at Disney stars, you probably think of Miley Cyrus. But wake up! Miley Cyrus is NOT talented. She can't sing. She's not a good role model. Everything has to be about her (good example: Party In The USA. It's all about HER. And she NEEDS Disney. Nobody can relate to it). But look at Demi. She is a very talented singer (and actress). She's a very good role model. She's a very caring and selfless person. And Demi doesn't need Disney anymore.

    I love this song so much, especially the meaning. A character from a story I'm writing is in a similar situation - she's falling in love with a boy, but not only does he have a girlfriend, but he's also hurt her too much in the past for her to just let herself be with him. And at the same time she doesn't want to admite she's in love with him. My favourite part of the song, though, is the end, "If this is love, please don't break me, I give up, so please just catch me," where she realizes that she can't deny it anymore, and lets herself fall for him.
