Fearless

Fearless
(Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

There’s somethin’ ’bout the way
The street looks when it’s just rained
There’s a glow off the pavement
You walk me to the car
And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there
In the middle of the parking lot, yeah
Oh yeah

We’re driving down the road
I wonder if you know
I’m tryin’ so hard not to get caught up now
But you’re just so cool, run your hands through your hair
Absentmindedly you’re makin’ me want you

And I don’t know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don’t know why but with you I’d dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

So baby drive slow till we run out of road
In this one-horse town, I wanna stay right here
In this passenger’s seat
You put your eyes on me
In this moment now
Capture it, remember it

Cause I don’t know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don’t know why but with you I’d dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Well you stood there with me in the doorway
My hands shake, I’m not usually this way but
You pull me in and I’m a little more brave
It’s the first kiss, it’s flawless, really something,
It’s fearless

Oh yeah

Cause I don’t know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don’t know why but with you I’d dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Cause I don’t know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don’t know why but with you I’d dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Oh, oh yeah

Fifteen

Fifteen
(Taylor Swift)

You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It’s the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you ain’t seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybody’s way
It’s your freshman year and you’re gonna be here
For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
You know I haven’t seen you around, before

Cause when you’re fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen, feeling like
There’s nothing to figure out
Well count to ten, take it in
This is life before you know
Who you’re gonna be
Fifteen

You sit in a class next to a redhead named Abigail
And soon enough you’re best friends
Laughing at the others girls
Who think they’re so cool
We’ll be out of here as soon as we can
And then you’re on you’re very first date
And he’s got a car
And you’re feeling like flying
And you’re mamma’s waiting up and you’re thinking he’s the one
And you’re dancing ’round your room when the night ends
When the night ends

Cause when you’re fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
When you’re fifteen and your first kiss
Makes you head spin ’round but
In your life you’ll do things greater
Than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn’t know it at fifteen

When all you wanted
Was to be wanted
Wish you could go back
And tell yourself what you know now

Back then I swore I was gonna
Marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his mind
And we both cried

Cause when you’re fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen, don’t forget to look before you fall
I’ve found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you’re supposed to be
I didn’t know who I was supposed to be
At fifteen

La la la la la…la la la la la…la la la la la

Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors

Love Story

Love Story
(Taylor Swift)

We were both young when I first saw you
I closed my eyes and the flashback starts
I’m standing there on the balcony in summer air
See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
And say hello
Little did I know
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said to stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don’t go
And I said

Romeo take me somewhere where we can be alone
I’ll be waiting all there’s left to do is run
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story baby just say yes

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet cause we’re dead if they knew
So close your eyes
Escape this town for a little while
Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
I was begging you please don’t go
And I said

Romeo take me somewhere where we can be alone 
I’ll be waiting all there’s left to do is run
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me there trying to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it’s real
Don’t be afraid, we’ll make it out of this mess
It’s a love story baby just say yes
Oh Oh

And I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town
And I said

Romeo save me I’ve been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head, I don’t know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
And said
Marry me Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone
I love you and that’s all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It’s a love story baby just say yes

Oh Oh
Oh Oh

Cause we were both young
When I first saw you

Hey Stephen

Hey Stephen
(Taylor Swift)

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mm, mm, mm
Mmm, mmm, mmm. mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mm, mm, mm, mm,
Mmm, mmm, mmm, yeah

Hey Stephen, I know looks can be deceivin’ but I know I saw a light in you
And as we walked we were talking  I didn’t say half the things I wanted to
Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window I’ll be the one waiting there even when it’s cold
Hey Stephen, boy you might have me believing, I don’t always have to be alone

Cause I can’t help it if you look like an angel
Can’t help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you
Can’t help it if there’s no one else
Mmm, I can’t help myself

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mm, mm, mm

Hey Stephen, I’ve been holding back this feeling so I’ve got some things to say to you (Ha!)
I’ve seen it all, so I thought  but I’ve never seen nobody shine the way you do
The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name
It’s beautiful, wonderful, don’t you ever change
Hey Stephen, why are people always leaving I think you and I should stay the same

Cause I can’t help it if you look like an angel
Can’t help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you
Can’t help it if there’s no one else
Mmm, I can’t help myself

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

They’re dimming the street lights, you’re perfect for me why aren’t you here tonight
I’m waiting alone now so come on and come out  and pull me near
And shine, shine, shine

Hey Stephen, I could give you fifty reasons  why I should be the one you choose
All those other girls, well they’re beautiful but would they write a song for you
Haha

I can’t help it if you look like an angel
Can’t help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you
Can’t help it if there’s no one else
Mmm, I can’t help myself

If you look like an angel
Can’t help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you
Can’t help it if there’s no one else
Mmm, I can’t help myself
Mmm, mmm, mmm
Myself
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mm
Can’t help myself
I can’t help myself, oh-oh-oh

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mm, mm, mm, mm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mm, mm, mm, mm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm

White Horse

White Horse
(Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

Say you’re sorry that face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I pace back and forth all this time
‘Cause I honestly believed in you
Holding on the days drag on
Stupid girl, I should have known
I should have known

That I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairytale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now its too late for you and your White Horse
To come around

Maybe I was naíve, got lost in your eyes
I never really had a chance
My mistake, I didn’t know to be in love
You had to fight to get the upper hand
I had so many dreams about you and me.
Happy endings, now I know

That I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairytale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now its too late for you and your White Horse
To come around

And there you are on your knees
Begging for forgiveness
Begging for me
Just like I always wanted, but I’m so sorry

Cause I’m not your princess, this ain’t our fairytale
I’m gonna find someone, someday
Who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rear view mirror disappearing now
And it’s too late for you and your White Horse
Now its too late for you and your White Horse
To catch me now

Oh whoa whoa whoa-oh, try and catch me now, oh
It’s too late to catch me now

You Belong with Me

You Belong with Me
(Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

You’re on the phone with your girlfriend
She’s upset, she’s going off about something that you said
Cause she doesn’t get your humor like I do
I’m in the room, its a typical Tuesday night
I’m listening to the kind of music she doesn’t like
And she’ll never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see
You belong with me
You belong with me

Walking the streets with you in your worn out jeans
I cant help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench thinking to myself, hey isn’t this easy
And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven’t seen it in awhile, since she brought you down
You say your fine I know you better than that
Hey, what you doing with a girl like that?

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you’ll wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see
You belong with me
Standing by here, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know baby
You belong with me
You belong with me

Oh I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I’m the one who makes you laugh when you know you’re about to cry
I know your favorite songs and you tell me about your dreams
I think I know where you belong. I think I know it’s with me

Can’t you see that I’m the one who understand you
Been here all along so why can’t you see
You belong with me
Standing by here, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that
You belong with me
You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me
You belong with me

Breathe (feat. Colbie Caillat)

Breathe (Feat. Colbie Caillat)
[Colbie Caillat, Taylor Swift]

I see your face in my mind as I drive away
Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way
People are people and sometimes we change our minds
But it’s killing me to see you go after all this time

Mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

Music starts playing like the end of a sad movie
It’s the kinda ending you don’t really wanna see
Cause it’s tragedy and it’ll only bring you down
Now I don’t know what to be without you around

And we know it’s never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You’re the only thing I know like the back of my hand
And I can’t Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to

Never wanted this, never wanna see you hurt
Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve
But people are people and sometimes it doesn’t work out
Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out

And we know it’s never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me
You’re the only thing I know like the back of my hand
And I can’t Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe without you, but I have to

It’s 2a.m., feelin’ like I just lost a friend
Hope you know it’s not easy, easy for me
It’s 2a.m., feelin’ like I just lost a friend
Hope you know this ain’t easy, easy for me

And we know it’s never simple, never easy
Never a clean break, no one here to save me, ohhh
I can’t Breathe without you, but I have to
Breathe, without you, but I have to
Breathe, without you, but I have to

I’m sorry (Ooh) I’m sorry (mmm)
I’m sorry (eh eh) I’m sorry (mmm)
I’m sorry (eh eh) I’m sorry (mmm)
I’m sorry

Tell Me Why

Tell Me Why
(Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

I took a chance, I took a shot
And you might think I’m bulletproof, but I’m not
You took a swing, I took it hard
And down here from the ground I see who you are

I’m sick and tired of your attitude
I’m feeling like I don’t know you
You tell me that that you love me then cut me down
And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you’re around
And here’s to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you’re doing to me
Tell me why

You could write a book on how to ruin someone’s perfect day
Well I get so confused and frustrated
Forget what I’m trying to say, oh

I’m sick and tired of your reasons
I got no one to believe in
You tell me that you want me, then push me around
And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you’re around
Here’s to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you’re doing to me
Tell me why

Why…do you have to make me feel small
So you can feel whole inside
Why…do you have to put down my dreams
So you’re the only thing on my mind

And I’m sick and tired of your attitude
I’m feeling like I don’t know you
You tell me that you want me and cut me down
I’m sick and tired of your reasons
I’ve got no one to believe in
You ask me for my love, then you push me around
Here’s to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you’re doing to me
Tell me why
Why, tell me why, oh

I take a step back, let you go
I told you I wasn’t bulletproof
Now you know

You’re Not Sorry

You’re Not Sorry
(Taylor Swift)

All this time I was wasting hoping you would come around
I’ve been giving out chances every time
And all you do is let me down
And it’s taken me this long baby but I figured you out
And you think it will be fine again but not this time around

You don’t have to call anymore
I won’t pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don’t wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you’re sorry
But I don’t believe you baby
Like I did before
You’re not sorry… no, no, no, no

You’re looking so innocent
I might believe you if I didn’t know.
Could’ve loved you all my life
If you hadn’t left me waiting in the cold
And you’ve got your share of secrets
And I’m tired of being last to know
And now you’re asking me to listen cause it’s worked each time before

But you don’t have to call anymore
I won’t pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don’t wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you’re sorry
But I don’t believe you baby
Like I did before
You’re not sorry… no, no, no, whoa-ah-oh
You’re not sorry… no, no, no, whoa-ah-oh

You had me calling for you honey
And it never would have gone away, no
You used to shine so bright but I watch all of it fade

So you don’t have to call anymore
I won’t pick up the phone
This is the last straw
There’s nothing left to beg for
And you can tell me that you’re sorry
But I don’t believe you baby
Like I did before
You’re not sorry… no, no, no, whoa-ah-oh
You’re not sorry… no, no, no, whoa-ah-oh

No, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Whoa-ah-oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh oh. oh-ah-oh
Oh, oh, oh, no, no
No, no-whoa-ah-oh, no

The Way I Loved You

The Way I Loved You
(John Rich, Taylor Swift)

He is sensible and so incredible
And all my single friends are jealous
He says everything I need to hear
And it’s like I couldn’t ask for anything better
He opens up my door and I get into his car
And he says you look beautiful tonight
And I feel perfectly fine

But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And its 2am and I’m cursing your name
You’re so in love that you act insane
And that’s the way I loved you
Breakin’ down and coming undone
It’s a roller coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that’s the way I loved you

He respects my space
And never makes me wait
And he calls exactly when he says he will
He’s close to my mother
Talks business with my father
He’s charming and endearing
And I’m comfortable

But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And its 2am and I’m cursing your name
You’re so in love that you act insane
And that’s the way I loved you
Breakin’ down and coming undone
It’s a roller coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that’s the way I loved you

He can’t see the smile I’m faking
And my hearts not breaking
Cause I’m not feeling anything at all
And you were wild and crazy
Just so frustrating, intoxicating
Complicated, got away by some mistake and now

I miss screaming, and fighting, and kissing in the rain
it’s 2am and I’m cursing your name.
I’m so in love that I acted insane.
And that’s the way I loved you.
Breakin’ down and coming undone
it’s a roller coaster kinda rush.
And I never knew I could feel that much.
And that’s the way I loved you, oh, oh

And that’s the way I loved you, oh, oh
Never knew I could feel that much
And that’s the way I loved you

Forever & Always

Forever & Always
(Taylor Swift)

Once upon a time, I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye
And we caught onto something
I hold on to the night, you looked me in the eye and told me you loved me

Were you just kidding?
Cause it seems to me, this thing is breaking down
We almost never speak
I don’t feel welcome anymore,
Baby what happened please tell me

Cause one second it was perfect, now you’re halfway out the door

And I stare at the phone, he still hasn’t called
And you feel so low you can’t feel nothing at all
And you flash back to when he said forever and always
Ohh ohhh
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always

Was I out of line? Did I say something way too honest, made you run and hide
Like a scared little boy
I looked into your eyes
Thought I knew for a minute, now I’m not so sure.
So here’s to everything coming down to nothing
Here’s to silence that cuts me to the core.
Where is this going? Thought I knew for a minute
But I don’t anymore

And I stare at the phone, he still hasn’t called
And you feel so low you can’t feel nothing at all
And you flash back to when he said forever and always
Ohh ohhh
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always
You didn’t mean it baby
I don’t think so
Ohhh, ohhhh

Oh back up, baby, back up
Did you forget everything?
Back up, baby, back up
Did you forget everything?

Cause it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always

Ohhh
I stare at the phone, he still hasn’t called
And you feel so low you can’t feel nothing at all
And you flash back to when we said forever and always
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always
You didn’t mean it baby
You said forever and always yeah

The Best Day

The Best Day
(Taylor Swift)

I’m five years old and it’s getting cold I’ve got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides look now the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you’re not scared of anything at all
Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I’m thirteen now and don’t know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop till I forgot all their names

I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school
But I know I’m laughing on the car ride home with you
Don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel ok
But I know I had the best day with you today

I have an excellent father
His strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out he’s better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you’re talking to me
It’s the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
Daddy’s smart and you’re the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine and I didn’t know if you knew
So I’m taking this chance to say that I had the best day with you today

Change

Change
(Taylor Swift)

And it’s a sad picture, the final blow hits you
Somebody else gets what you wanted again
You know it’s all the same, another time and place
Repeating history and you’re getting sick of it
But I believe in whatever you do
And I’ll do anything to see it through

Because these things will change
Can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down
This revolution, the time will come
For us to finally win
And we’ll sing Hallelujah, we’ll sing Hallelujah
Oh

So we’ve been outnumbered
Raided and now cornered
It’s hard to fight when the fight ain’t fair
We’re getting stronger now
Find things they never found
They might be bigger
But we’re faster and never scared.
You can walk away say “We don’t need this”
But there’s something in your eyes
Says “We can beat this”

Because these things will change
Can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down
This revolution, the time will come
For us to finally win
And we’ll sing Hallelujah, we’ll sing Hallelujah
Oh

Tonight we’ll stand, get off our knees
Fight for what we’ve worked for all these years
And the battle was long, it’s the fight of our lives
But we’ll stand up champions tonight

It was the night things changed
Do you see it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back fell down
It’s a revolution, throw your hands up
‘Cause we never gave in
And we’ll sing Hallelujah, we sang Hallelujah
Hallelujah… Yeah

Tell me why
Why, tell me why, oh

I take a step back, let you go
I told you I wasn’t bulletproof
Now you know
