When I was six, I made up a list
Of everything I wanted my guy to be
I said, “He’s gotta be tall, dark, and handsome... ”
And the list goes on and on

I had a preconception
It took me in the opposite direction
You are the one exception that I could fall for

You are everything that I never hoped for
Opposite of dreams that I’ve dreamed before
Yet here I am, here we are
And I’m falling hard, falling hard for you

I said, “Boy if you want an invitation
You’ve gotta meet my expectations.
Now don’t you forget, I play hard to get
And I want you to pursue! ”

I had a preconception
It took me in the opposite direction
You are the one exception that I could fall for

You are everything that I never hoped for
Opposite of dreams that I’ve dreamed before
Yet here I am, here we are
And I’m falling hard, falling hard...

You are everything that I never hoped for
Opposite of dreams that I’ve dreamed before
Yet here I am, here we are
And I’m falling hard, falling hard for you

Who knew that it was you that I would fall for?
Hands down, I’ve finally found what I’ve been looking for

You are everything that I never hoped for
Opposite of dreams that I’ve dreamed before
Yet here I am, here we are
And I’m falling hard, falling hard...

You are everything that I never hoped for
Opposite of dreams that I’ve dreamed before
Yet here I am, here we are
And I’m falling hard, falling hard for you

Here I am, here we are
And I’m falling hard, falling hard for you
