Bonus tracks

right where you left me

right where you left me
(Aaron Dessner, Taylor Swift)

Friends break up, friends get married
Strangers get born, strangers get buried
Trends change, rumors fly through new skies
But I’m right where you left me
Matches burn after the other
Pages turn and stick to each other
Wages earned and lessons learned
But I’m right where you left me

Help, I’m still at the restaurant
Still sitting in a corner I haunt
Cross-legged in the dim light
They say, “What a sad sight”
I, I swear you could hear a hair pin drop
Right when I felt the moment stop
Glass shattered on the white cloth
Everybody moved on, I, I stayed there
Dust collected on my pinned-up hair
They expected me to find somewhere
Some perspective, but I sat and stared

Right where you left me
You left me no, you left me no
You left me no choice but to stay here forever
You left me, you left me no, you left me no
You left me no choice but to stay here forever

Did you ever hear about the girl who got frozen?
Time went on for everybody else
She won’t know it, she’s still twenty-three inside her fantasy
How it was supposed to be
Did you hear about the girl who lives in delusion?
Breakups happen every day, you don’t have to lose it
She’s still twenty-three inside her fantasy
And you’re sitting in front of me

At the restaurant when I was still the one you want
Cross-legged in the dim light everything was just right
I, I could feel the mascara run
You told me that you met someone
Glass shattered on the white cloth
Everybody moved on

Help, I’m still at the restaurant
Still sitting in a corner I haunt
Cross-legged in the dim light
They say, “What a sad sight”
I, I stayed there
Dust collected on my pinned-up hair
I’m sure that you got a wife out there
Kids and Christmas, but I’m unaware
Cause I’m right where I cause no harm
Mind my business
If our love died young
I can’t bear witness
And it’s been so long
But if you ever think you got it wrong

I’m right where
You left me
You left me no, you left me no
You left me no choice but to stay here forever
You left me
You left me no, you left me no
You left me no choice but to stay here forever

it’s time to go

it’s time to go
(Aaron Dessner, Taylor Swift)

When your dinner is cold and the chatter gets old
You ask for the tab
Or that moment again, he’s insisting that friends
Look at each other like that

When the words of a sister come back in whispers
That prove she was not in fact what she seemed
Not a twin from your dreams
She’s a crook who was caught

That old familiar body ache
The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul
You know when it’s time to go

Twenty years at your job
Then the son of the boss gets the spot that was yours
We’re trying to stay for the kids
When keeping it how it is will only break their hearts worse

That old familiar body ache
The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul
You know when it’s time to go

Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
That will find you the right thing
Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
That will find you the right thing

Fifteen years, fifteen million tears
Begging ’til my knees bled
I gave it my all, he gave me nothing at all
Then wondered why I left

Now he sits on his throne in his palace of bones
Praying to his greed
He’s got my past frozen behind glass
But I’ve got me
That old familiar body ache
The snaps from the same little breaks in my soul
I know when it’s time to go

Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
That will find you the right thing
Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
That will find you the right thing

That will find you the right thing
And you know in your soul
And you know in your soul
When it’s time go
You know, you know, you know, you know
When it’s time to go
So then you go
Then you go
You just go

willow (90’s trend remix)

willow (90’s trend remix)
[Aaron Dessner & Taylor Swift]

I’m like the water when your ship rolled in that night
Rough on the surface, but you cut through like a knife
And if it was an open-shut case
I never would have known from the look on your face
Lost in your current like a priceless wine

The more that you say, the less I know
Wherever you stray, I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man
That’s my man

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind
Head on the pillow, I can feel you sneakin’ in
As if you are a mythical thing
Like you were a trophy or a champion ring
And there was one prize I’d cheat to win

The more that you say, the less I know
Wherever you stray, I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man
That’s my man

Life was a willow, and it bent right to your wind
They count me out time and time again
Life was a willow, and it bent right to your wind
But I come back stronger than a ’90s trend

Wait for the signal, and I’ll meet you after dark
Show me the places where the others gave you scars
And now this is an open-shut case
I guess I should’a known from the look on your face
Every bait-and-switch was a work of art

The more that you say, the less I know
Wherever you stray, I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man

Hey, that’s my man
That’s my man
Yeah, that’s my man
Every bait-and-switch was a work of art (That’s my man)
That’s my man
Hey, that’s my man (That’s my man)
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man
That’s my man
That’s my man
Hey that’s my man
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans, that’s my man
