Hits Different

Hits Different
(Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

I washed my hands of us at the club
You made a mess of me
I pictured you with other girls in love
Then threw up on the street
Like waiting for a bus that never shows
You just start walking on
They say that if it’s right, you know
Each bar plays our song
Nothing has ever felt so wrong

Oh my, love is a lie
Shit my friends say to get me by
It hits different, it hits different this time
Catastrophic blues
Moving on was always easy for me to do
It hits different, it hits different ’cause it’s you
(‘Cause it’s you)

I used to switch out these Kens, I’d just ghost
Rip the band-aid off and skip town likе an asshole outlaw
Freedom felt like summеr then on the coast
Now the sun burns my heart and the sand hurts my feelings
And I never don’t cry (And I never don’t cry) at the bar
Yeah, my sadness is contagious (My sadness is contagious)
I slur your name ’til someone puts me in a car
I stopped receiving invitations

Oh my, love is a lie
Shit my friends say to get me by
It hits different, it hits different this time
Catastrophic blues
Moving on was always easy for me to do
It hits different, it hits different ’cause it’s you
(‘Cause it’s you)

I find the artifacts, cried over a hat, cursed the space that I needed
I trace the evidence, make it make some sense, why the wound is still bleeding
You were the one that I loved, don’t need another metaphor it’s simple enough
A wrinkle in time like the crease by your eyes
This is why they shouldn’t kill off the main guy
Dreams of your hair and your stare and sense of belief
In the good in the world, you once believed in me
And I felt you and I held you for a while
Bet I could still melt your world, argumentative, antithetical dream girl
I heard your key turn in the door down the hallway
Is that your key in the door? Is it okay? Is it you?
Or have they come to take me away?
To take me away

Oh my, love is a lie
Shit my friends say to get me by
It hits different (It hits different), it hits different this time
Catastrophic blues
Moving on was always easy for me to do
It hits different (It hits different), it hits different ’cause it’s you
Oh my, love is a lie
Shit my friends say to get me by
 (It hits different ’cause it’s you)
(‘Cause it’s you)
Catastrophic blues
Moving on was always easy for me to do

It hits different, it hits different ’cause it’s you, yeah

You’re On Your Own, Kid (Strings Remix)

You’re On Your Own, Kid (Strings Remix)
[Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift]

Summer went away, still, the yearning stays
I play it cool with the best of them
I wait patiently, he’s gonna notice me
It’s okay, we’re the best of friends
Anyway
I hear it in your voice
You’re smoking with your boys
I touch my phone as if it’s your face
I didn’t choose this town, I dream of getting out
There’s just one who could make me stay
All my days

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I waited ages to see you there
I search the party of better bodies
Just to learn that you never cared
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been

I see the great escape, so long, Daisy Mae
I picked the petals, he loves me not
Something different bloomed, writing in my room
I play my songs in the parking lot
I’ll run away

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I called a taxi to take me there
I search the party of better bodies
Just to learn that my dreams aren’t rare
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I gave my blood, sweat, and tears for this
I hosted parties and starved my body
Like I’d be saved by a perfect kiss
The jokes weren’t funny, I took the money
My friends from home don’t know what to say
I looked around in a blood-soaked gown

And I saw something they can’t take away
‘Cause there were pages turned with the bridges burned
Everything you lose is a step you take
So, make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it
You’ve got no reason to be afraid

You’re on your own, kid
Yeah, you can face this
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been

Sweet Nothing (Piano Remix)

Sweet Nothing (Piano Remix)
[Taylor Swift, William Bowery]

I spy with my little tired eye
Tiny as a firefly, a pebble
That we picked up last July
Down deep inside your pocket
We almost forgot it
Does it ever miss Wicklow sometimes?
Ooh, ooh

They said the end is coming
Everyone’s up to something
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving
You’re in the kitchen hummin’
All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing

On the way home
I wrote a poem
You say, “What a mind”
This happens all the time
Ooh, ooh

Causе they said the end is coming
Evеryone’s up to something
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving
You’re in the kitchen hummin’
All that you ever wanted from me was nothing

Industry disruptors and soul deconstructors
And smooth-talking hucksters out glad-handing each other
And the voices that implore, “You should be doing more”
To you, I can admit that I’m just too soft for all of it
Ooh

They said the end is coming
Everyone’s up to something
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving
You’re in the kitchen hummin’
All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing

They said the end is coming (They said the end is coming)
Everyone’s up to something (Everyone’s up to something)
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving (Outside they’re push and shoving)
You’re in the kitchen hummin’ (You’re in the kitchen hummin’)
All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing
