The ball may now be in Swift's court, but she was the one to throw the first pitch: Young's song is actually an expanded, rearranged and slightly twisted take on Taylor's original track, 'Enchanted.' The original appears on her latest album, 'Speak Now,' and -- get this -- appears to be aimed at Young. Not only are the letters A-D-A-M capitalized in the lyric book, but, furthermore, Swift deliberately used the word 'wonderstruck' in the lyrics -- a word that Young used in what was apparently a memorable email exchange between the two.
Instead of encoding the personalized message, leaving it ambiguous or being as cryptic about it as Swift, Adam comes right out and sings her name, and he even fills in the blanks on his Owl City blog. The artists are said to have met just once, but multiple sources have reported both of them gushing about it.
"Everything about you is lovely," Young writes in an open Valentine's Day letter to Swift, which appears on his blog alongside a stream of the track. "You're an immensely charming girl with a beautiful heart and more grace and elegance than I know how to describe. You are a true princess from a dreamy fairy tale, and, above all, I just want you to know... I was enchanted to meet you too."
Oh yeah -- it's so on.
