Trip on Love

Song Notes

TK/Elizabeth Vidal

–Liz and I started this song the day the tornadoes hit Nashville, and we had a great feeling about it, but we didn’t finish it for maybe a couple of months. This was one of those fortuitous situations where I started strumming something as we talked about not having any ideas, and most of it tumbled out before we could overthink it. Abra Moore later recorded it for the film Cruel Intentions, and it’s on my Short Stories with a band, but I like the work tape. Listening to it I can feel how brand new the song was when I put it down.

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
