Jump Then Fall

Fearless [Platinum Edition] (2009) | Fearless (Taylor's Version) [2021]

“Jump Then Fall” is a song about falling in love and Taylor reassuring her boyfriend that she’ll never leave him. It is the opening track from the Platinum Edition of her second studio album, “Fearless” (2008). The re-recording of the song, “Jump Then Fall (Taylor’s Version)”, was released on April 9, 2021 on the album “Fearless (Taylor’s Version).”

Taylor wrote “Jump Then Fall” in the summer of 2009 and produced it together with Nathan Chapman. The song’s lyrics are a reassuring message from Taylor to a boy she likes. She tells him that she will never leave him, and that she’ll be there for him during times of difficulty. After thinking over their relationship, she realizes that there isn’t anything to dislike about him, and that she just wants to be with him.

“It’s probably the happiest, bounciest, most fun song to drive down the street listening to. It’s one of my favorites on the Platinum Edition. It’s just really fun and happy and takes me back to a good place.” — Taylor Swift

“Jump Then Fall” was one of five new songs on the Platinum Edition of her sophomore album, “Fearless”. It debuted at No. 10 on the Hot 100 in its debut week. It was first re-released on the soundtrack for the film “Valentine’s Day”, in which Taylor stars.

Taylor has performed “Jump Then Fall” a few times over the years, most notably at her first ever stadium show in 2010 at Gillette Stadium on her “Fearless Tour” and in 2018 on her “reputation Stadium Tour“.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I like the way you sound in the morning
We’re on the phone and without a warning
I realize your laugh is the best sound I have ever heard
I like the way I can’t keep my focus
I watch you talk you didn’t notice
I hear the words but all I can think is we should be together

[Pre-Chorus]
Every time you smile, I smile
And every time you shine, I’ll shine for you

[Chorus]
Whoa oh I’m feeling you baby
Don’t be afraid to jump then fall, jump then fall into me
Baby, I’m never gonna leave you
Say that you wanna be with me too
Cause I’ma stay through it all so jump then fall

[Verse 2]
Well I like the way your hair falls in your face
You got the keys to me I love each freckle on your face, oh
I’ve never been so wrapped up
Honey, I like the way you’re everything I’ve ever wanted
I had time to think it all over and all I can say is come closer
Take a deep breath and jump then fall into me

[Pre-Chorus]
Every time you smile, I smile
And every time you shine, I’ll shine for you

[Chorus]
Whoa oh I’m feeling you baby
Don’t be afraid to jump then fall
jump then fall into me
Baby, I’m never gonna leave you
Say that you wanna be with me too
I’ma stay through it all so jump then fall

[Bridge]
The bottoms gonna drop out from under our feet
I’ll catch you, I’ll catch you
When people say things that bring you to your knees
I’ll catch you
The time is gonna come when you’re so mad you could cry
But I’ll hold you through the night until you smile

[Chorus]
Whoa oh I need you baby
Don’t be afraid please
Jump then fall, jump then fall into me
Baby, I’m never gonna leave you
Say that you wanna be with me too
I’ma stay through it all so jump then fall
Jump then fall baby
Jump then fall into me, into me

[Outro]
Every time you smile, I smile
And every time you shine, I’ll shine
And every time you’re here baby, I’ll show you, I’ll show you
You can jump then fall, jump then fall, jump then fall
Into me, into me yeah
