NSFW alert! American Idol season 15 winner Trent Harmon revealed that the risqué lyrics of his coronation song, “Falling,” were cowritten by Idol judge Keith Urban in a new interview with Rolling Stone Country.
The second verse of the track definitely seems to be about oral sex with lines such as, “You slide your fingers through my hair and tell me 'take it slow.’ And I know what you want. And so I go down on my knees. I’m here to please.”
“We were listening [to the demo] and reading through the lyric sheet and I said, ‘Oh, wow. Cool, bro!,'” Harmon, 25, told the mag. “I really didn’t know what to say … You’ve got to grow up sometime.” He says he never even thought of asking to alter the raunchy verse.
The big surprise was that Harmon wasn’t aware the Grammy-winning singer — married to Nicole Kidman since 2006 — wrote the R-rated verse while he was in the midst of recording the song. “Two or three hours before the finale, Keith told me,” the final Idol winner said. "So right before I went out to sing it, I shook his hand and said, ‘If I win this thing, you did it.’"
The country superstar then asked Harmon how much of the song he was planning to sing on live television, and Harmon said only the first verse. “That’s probably for the best!” Urban joked.
Harmon is currently recording his first album with Nashville’s Big Machine Records (Taylor Swift’s label), which will feature some country-inspired tracks.
