"Fallin' for You" is a song by American singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat. It was written by Caillat along with Rick Nowels, and produced by Nowels, John Shanks, and Caillat's father Ken Caillat, for her second studio album Breakthrough (2009). The song was released on June 26, 2009 as the lead single from the album, through Universal Republic. Musically, the song is a pop ballad, and the lyrics, according to Caillat, speak of people falling for a guy that they are friends with.

The song was included on the international soundtrack of the Brazilian soap opera Viver a Vida (Portuguese for Seize the Day). "Fallin' for You" is Caillat's fourth single to be included in a soap opera in Brazil. The first was "Bubbly" in Sete Pecados, the second was "Midnight Bottle" in Três Irmãs and the third was "Lucky" in Caras & Bocas.[1]

Music video[edit]

The video was released in July and is directed by The Malloys.[2]

In the video, she goes to the beach with a man, played by Bobby Moynihan, who is not her type (as she says during a phone call in the beginning of the video), but she starts to like him more and more over the course of the outing.[3] At the end of the video when she sings the lyrics "Oh, I'm fallin' for you." the man pops out of the trailer asking, "Seriously? You mean it?" and Caillat nods, indicating that she has fallen for him.[4]

Cover versions[edit]

YouTube singer/songwriter Kina Grannis did a cover of the song in August 2009.[5]
