Trip on Love

Song Notes

TK/Liz Vidal
©1999

–Liz is one of my favorite collaborators and favorite people, and we wrote most of this song on a day when three tornados hit Nashville. It was spooky looking outside my studio window, but we had no idea how much trouble was going down in other parts of town.

[Texas artist Abra Moore recorded this for "Cruel Intentions," one of the first films starring Nashvillian Reese Witherspoon.]

I let my guard down
In a momentary lapse of emotion
It just slipped out
Then we both knew my heart could be broken

I said something I never intended to say
You stopped laughing, and you asked me
Do you feel alone in that way

Do you trip on love
Do you run from magic
When you kiss someone
Do you make it tragic
If you feel too much
Do you start to panic
When the word comes up
Do you trip on love

I just stood there
I’d expected another reaction
Out of thin air
Came the strangest sense of satisfaction

Can you tell me how you see me so well
If you held me would you let me
See that part of yourself

Do you trip on love
Do you run from magic
When you kiss someone
Do you make it tragic
If you feel too much
Do you start to panic
When the word comes up
Do you trip on love

And where do we go
Do we say it means less than we know it does?
Please tell me…
I want to know…

Do you trip on love
Do you run from magic
When you kiss someone
Do you make it tragic
If you feel too much
Do you start to panic
When the word comes up
Do you trip on love
