Can’t Help Falling In Love

This song is the baap of classics! Originally sung and released by Elvis Presley in 1961, there have been so many renditions to this song. I have always loved this song since my childhood days. The depth of emotion required to sing this song is immense. Every time I hear this song, I begin to wail in inconclusive pensiveness. I appreciate this song so much that tears just begin to flow out of respect for the melody and simplicity. Usually, I prefer the original song; but in this case I’d choose this version any day, every single time. I highly recommend the version I have embedded below. It’s a beautiful young couple. They seem giddy headed and can’t stop blushing, constantly stealing glances while they’re performing. You can tell they’re actually singing this song for each other because there’s so much visible chemistry between the two. Who wouldn’t want a boy who looks at you the way this guy has been gazing at her all along? She’s the center of his universe and she definitely adores him too. It’s requited love which is so rare. That’s why it’s just so fulfilling to watch them sing and transform that charismatic warmth into something so beautiful. Young, innocent love!

Falling In Love – poem by Ruelha

Wise men tell me.
To speed up and flee.
But, I can't help...
falling in love with you.
Even from a distance,
I have no resistance.

Should I stay?
Let it be this way?
Would it be a sin?
There's really no win.
How you manage to do!
Because, I can't help...
falling in love with you.

Just take one step.
And I'll take two.
You tipped my sanity askew.
This would happen, I always knew.
Because, I can't help...
falling in love with you.

Take my hand.
I don't know where I stand.
Take my whole life too.
Although I can see right through,
my heart is behaving like glue.
And I can't help...
falling in love with you.

Some things are meant to be.
Even with all the uncertainty.
Love is such a thing.
Sometimes, nobody wins.
Day by day the insanity only grew.
And I just can't help...
falling in love with you.

Like a river flows to the sea.
You'll always be a part of me.
Some things are just like this.
You throw away all your logic.
You'll never guess what you put me through.
Yet, why can't I help...
falling in love with you?

Like a teenager I behave.
Implored to be your slave.
Surely, I'm not wise.
You can see weak love in my eyes.
Oh, why can't I help...
falling in love with you?

A river flows to the sea.
That is where it will eventually be.
I can't control or even hit pause.
I cry all night of this because.
For I can't help...
falling in love with you.

Only fools rush in.
But you're all under my skin.
And still, yet again.
Through all the pain.
I can't help...
falling in love with you.

Oh, I can't help falling in love with you!
Why can't I help falling in love with you?

Lyrics of ‘Falling in love with you’

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help
Fallin' in love with you
Oh, shall I stay?
Would it be a sin?
Oh, if I can't help
Fallin' in love with you
Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things
Are meant to be
Take my hand
Take my whole life too
Oh, for I can't help
Fallin' in love with you
Oh, like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Oh, take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can't help
Fallin' in love with you
Oh, oh, for I, I can't help
Fallin' in love with you

    1. Aaah, some poems and songs really do!
      I’m telling you, this is true!
      They mesmerize me,
      completely.
      And I don’t have an answer.
      When I sit to wonder.
      What it was.
      That happened to cause.
      Such strong emotions.
      It’s not my portion.
      But, they just do.
      Some songs, just a few!

      1. Of Elvis’ songs? Jail House Rock. Blue Suade Shoes. Hound dog. Frankie and Johnny, Burning Love. Hi-Heel Sneakers. I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago. I’m a Roustabout. Marguerita. Mexico. No Room to Rhumba in a Sports Car. Petunia, the Gardener’s Daughter. Pieces of My Life. Plantation Rock. Witchcraft, etc. My mom was huge Elvis fan when I was young so I got plenty of Elvis to like and dislike.
