State of Grace (Taylor’s Version)

State of Grace (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

I’m walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives
And all we know is touch and go
We alone with our changing minds
We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds, or fades in time

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same

You come around and the armor falls
Pierce the room like a cannon ball
Now all we know, is don’t let go
We are alone just you and me
Up in your room and our slates are clean
Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes

So you were never a saint
And I love the Sade’s are wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mostly of broken hearts
But this love is raging and wild

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same again

This is a state of grace
This is a worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
These are the hands of fate
You’re my Achilles heel
This is the golden age of something good
And right and real

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same

This is a state of grace
This is a worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right

Red (Taylor’s Version)

Red (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin, ending so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you’re already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn so bright just before they lose it all

Losing him was blue, like I’d never known
Missing him was dark gray, all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you’ve never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there’s no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong

Losing him was blue, like I’d never known
Missing him was dark gray, all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red, oh red, burning red

Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes
Tell myself it’s time now gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible when I still see it all in my head…in burning red
Burning, it was red

Losing him was blue, like I’d never known
Missing him was dark gray, all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you’ve never met
Cause loving him was red, yeah yeah red, burning red

And that’s why he’s spinning around in my head
Comes back to me in burning red, yeah, yeah
Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street

Treacherous (Taylor’s Version)

Treacherous (Taylor’s Version)
[Dan Wilson, Taylor Swift]

Put your lips close to mine
As long as they don’t touch
Out of focus, eye to eye
Till the gravity’s too much
And I’ll do anything you say
If you say it with your hands
And I’d be smart to walk away
But you’re quicksand

This slope is treacherous
This path is reckless
This slope is treacherous
And I, I, I like it

I can’t decide if it’s a choice
Getting swept away
I hear the sound of my own voice
Asking you to stay
And all we are is skin and bone
Trained to get along
Forever going with the flow
But you’re friction

This slope is treacherous
This path is reckless
This slope is treacherous
And I, I, I like it

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night and I will…
Get you a, get you alone
Your name has echoed through my mind and I just…
Think you should, think you should know
That nothing safe is worth the drive and I would…
Follow you, follow you home
I’ll follow you, follow you home

This slope is treacherous
This daydream is dangerous
This hope is treacherous
I, I, I…I, I, I…I, I, I…

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night and I will…
Get you a, get you alone
Your name has echoed through my mind and I just…
Think you should, think you should know
That nothing safe is worth the drive and I would…
Follow you, follow you home
I’ll follow you, follow you home
I’ll follow you, follow you home

This slope is dangerous
I, I, I like it

I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor’s Version)

I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor’s Version)
[Max Martin, Shellback, Taylor Swift]

Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me, you found me, you found me…
I guess you didn’t care and I guess I liked that
And I when I fell hard, you took a step back
Without me, without me, without me…
And he’s long gone when he’s next to me
And I realize the blame is on me

Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been till you put me down
Oh I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologizes, he’ll never see you cry
Pretend he doesn’t know, that he’s the reason why
You’re drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning…
And I heard you moved on, from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see…
He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me
Hey!

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been till you put me down
Oh I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear
Comes creeping in
That you never loved me
Or her…or anyone…or anything
Yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been till you put me down
Oh I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble

All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)

All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)
[Liz Rose, Taylor Swift]

I walked through the door with you
The air was so cold
But something about it felt like home somehow
And I left my scarf there at your sister’s house
And you’ve still got it in your drawer even now
Oh your sweet disposition
And my wide-eyed gaze
We’re singing in the car, getting lost upstate
Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place
And I can picture it after all these days
And I know it’s long gone and that magic’s not here no more
And I might be okay but I’m not fine at all…

Cause there we are again on that
Little town street
You almost ran the red cause you were
Lookin’ at me
Wind in my hair, I was there
I remember it all too well

Photo album on the counter
Your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses
In a twin sized bed
And your mother’s telling stories
About you on the tee ball team
You taught me about your past
Thinking your future was me
And I know it’s long gone and there was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to…

Cause there we are again in the middle of the night
We’re dancing round the kitchen in the refrigerator light
Down the stairs, I was there
I remember all too well

Well maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
Till you tore it all up
Running scared, I was there
I remember it all too well
And you call me up again
Just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying there
Cause I remember it all, all, all…too well

Time won’t fly, it’s like I’m paralyzed by it
I’d like to be my old self again
But I’m still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days and nights when you
Made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I
Walk home alone
But you keep my old scarf from that very first week
Cause it reminds you of innocence
And it smalls like me
You can’t get rid of it
Cause you remember it all too well

Cause there we are again when I loved you so
Back before you the one real thing you’ve ever known
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all to well
Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it all
Down the stairs, you were there, you remember it all
It was rare I was there, I remember it all to well

22 (Taylor’s Version)

22 (Taylor’s Version)
[Max Martin, Shellback, Taylor Swift]

It feels like a perfect night
To dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes
It feels like a perfect night
For breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers
Ah, ah. Ah, ah.
Yeah we’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about the deadlines, its time

I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright if
You keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright if
We just keep dancing like we’re… 22, 22

It seems like one of those nights
This place is too crowded
Too many cool kids
Ah, ah. Ah, ah.
It seems like one of those nights
We ditch the whole scene
And end up dreaming instead of sleeping, yeah…
We’re happy, free, confused and lonely in the best way
It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah
Tonight’s the night when we forget about heartbreaks, it’s time

I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright if
You keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright if
We just keep dancing like we’re… 22, 22
I don’t know about you
22, 22

It feels like one of those nights
We ditch the whole scene
It feels like one of those nights
You look like bad news
I gotta have you
I gotta have you

I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright if
You keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright if
We just keep dancing like we’re… 22, 22
22, 22

It feels like one of those nights
We ditch the whole scene
It feels like one of those nights
We won’t be sleeping
It feels like one of those nights
You look like bad news
I gotta have you
I gotta have you

I Almost Do (Taylor’s Version)

I Almost Do (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

I bet this time of night you’re still up
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week
I bet you’re sittin’ in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city and I bet
Sometimes you wonder about me

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me
Not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every time I don’t, I almost do
I almost do

I bet you think I either moved on or hate you
Cause each time you reach out, there’s no reply
I bet it never, ever occurred to you
That I can’t say hello to you and risk another goodbye

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me
Not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every time I don’t, I almost do
I almost do

We made quite a mess, babe
It’s probably better off this way
And I confess baby
In my dreams your touching my face
And asking me I’d want to try again with you
And I almost do

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me
Not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every time I don’t, I almost do
I almost do

I bet this time of night you’re still up
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week
I bet you’re sittin’ in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city and I bet
Sometimes you wonder about me

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor’s Version)

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor’s Version)
[Max Martin, Shellback, Taylor Swift]

I remember when we broke up the first time
Saying “This is it, I’ve had enough”
Cause like

We hadn’t seen each other in a month
When you said you need space… What?
Then you come around again and say
“Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change.
Trust me.”
Remember how that lasted for a day?
I say “I hate you,” we break up, you call me…
I love you.

Ooh oh oh oh oh
We called it off again last night but
Ooh oh oh oh oh
This time I’m telling you, I’m telling you

We are never ever, ever getting back together
We are never ever, ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we are never ever, ever, ever getting back together

[Spoken:]

Like ever

I’m really gonna miss you picking fights,
And me falling for it, screaming that I’m right
And you would hide away and find your peace of mind
With some indie record that’s much cooler than mine

Ooh oh oh oh oh
You called me up again tonight but
Ooh oh oh oh oh
This time I’m telling you, I’m telling you

We (We) are never ever, ever getting back together
We are never ever, (Ever) ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me (Talk to me)
But we are never ever, ever, ever getting back together

Ooh oh oh oh oh (Yeah!)
Ooh oh oh oh oh (Yeah!)
Ooh oh oh oh oh (Yeah!)

Uh oh oh oh

I used to think that we were forever, ever and I used to say
“Never say never…”

[Spoken:]
Ughhh… So he calls me up, and he’s like, “I still love you,”
 and I’m like, I mean this is exausting. You know, like
we are never getting back together. Like, ever.

No….
We are never ever, ever getting back together
We are never ever, (Ooh…) ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we are never ever, ever, ever, (ever) getting back together
(We) Ooh oh oh oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh oh
(Getting back together)
(We) Ooh oh oh oh oh (Oh, oh)
(Getting back together) (Yeah) (Ooh oh oh oh oh)
(Ooh oh oh oh oh) You go talk to your friends, (Ooh oh oh oh oh) talk to my friends, talk to me (Talk to me)
We are never ever, ever, ever getting back together

Stay Stay Stay (Taylor’s Version)

Stay Stay Stay (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

I’m pretty sure we almost broke up the last night
I threw my phone across the room at you
I was expecting some dramatic turn away but you… stayed

This morning I said we should talk about it
Cause I red you should never leave a fight unresolved
That when you came in wearing a football helmet and said “OK, let’s talk” and I said

Stay stay stay
I’ve been loving you for quite some
Time time time
You think that it’s funny when I’m
Mad mad mad
But I think that it’s best if we both stay

Before you I’d only dated self indulgent takers
Who took all of their problems out on me
But you carry my groceries and now I’m always laughing
And I love you because you have given me…no choice but to

Stay stay stay
I’ve been loving you for quite some
Time time time
You think that it’s funny when I’m
Mad mad mad
But I think that it’s best if we both stay
Stay stay

You took the time to memorize me
My fears, my hopes and dreams
I just like hanging out with you
All the time
All those times that you didn’t leave
It’s been occurring to me
I’d like to hang with you
For my whole life

Stay… and I’ll be loving you for quite some time
No one else is gonna love me when I get mad, mad, mad
So I think that it’s best if we stay
Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay

Stay stay stay
I’ve been loving you for quite some
Time time time
You think that it’s funny when I’m
Mad mad mad
But I think that it’s best if we both stay
Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay

Stay stay stay
I’ve been loving you for quite some
Time time time
You think that it’s funny when I’m
Mad mad mad
But I think that it’s best if we both stay

The Last Time (Taylor’s Version) [feat. Gary Lightbody]

The Last Time (Taylor’s Version) [feat. Gary Lightbody]
(Gary Lightbody, Jacknife Lee, Taylor Swift)

I found myself at your door
Just like all those times before
I’m not sure how I got there
All road, they lead me here
I imagine you are home
In your room, all alone
And you open your eyes into mine
And everything feels better
And right before your eyes
I’m breaking
No past, no reason why
Just you and me…

This is the last time I’m asking you this
Put my name at the top of your list
This is the last time I’m asking you why
You break my heart in the blink of an eye

You find yourself at my door
Just like all those times before
You wear your best apology
But I was there to watch you leave
And all the times I let you in
Just for you to go again
Disappear when you come back
Everything is better and right before your eyes, I’m aching
No past, nowhere to hide
Just you and me…

This is the last time I’m asking you this
Put my name at the top of your list
This is the last time I’m asking you why
You break my heart in the blink of an eye

This is the last time you tell me I’ve got it wrong
This is the last time I say “It’s been you all along”
This is the last time I let you in my door
This is the last time I won’t hurt you anymore

This is the last time I’m asking you this
Put my name at the top of your list
This is the last time I’m asking you why
You break my heart in the blink of an eye
Oh, oh, oh, oh
This is the last time I’m asking you this
Put my name at the top of your list
This is the last time I’m asking you why
You break my heart in the blink of an eye

This is the last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you this
This is the last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you this
This is the last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you this
This is the last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you, last time I’m asking you this

Holy Ground (Taylor’s Version)

Holy Ground (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

I was reminiscing just the other day
While having coffee all alone
And lord it took me away
Back to a first glance feeling on New York Time
Back when you fit my poems like a perfect rhyme
Took off faster than a green light, go
Yeah you skip the conversation when you already know
I left a note on the door with a joke we’d made
And that was the first day

And darling it was good
Never looking down
And right there where we stood
Was holy ground

Spinning like girl in a brand new dress we had this big wide city all to ourselves
We block the noise with the sound of “I need you”
And for the first time I had something to lose
And I guess we fell apart in the usual way
And the story’s got dust on every page
But sometimes I wonder how you think about it now
And I see your face in every crowd

Cause darling it was good
Never looking down
And right there where we stood
Was holy ground

Tonight I’m gonna dance
For all that we’ve been through
But I don’t want to dance
If I’m not dancing with you
Tonight I’m gonna dance
Like you were in this room
But I don’t want to dance
If I’m not dancing with you

It was good
Never looking down
And right there where we stood
Was holy ground

Tonight I’m gonna dance
For all that we’ve been through
But I don’t want to dance
If I’m not dancing with you
Tonight I’m gonna dance
Like you were in this room
But I don’t want to dance
If I’m not dancing with you

Sad Beautiful Tragic (Taylor’s Version)

Sad Beautiful Tragic (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

Long handwritten note, deep in your pocket
Words, how little they mean when you’re a little too late
I stood right by the tracks, your face in a locket
good girls, hopeful they’ll be and long they will wait

We had…
A beautiful, magic love there
What a sad…
Beautiful, tragic love affair

In dreams, I meet you in warm conversation
We both wake in lonely beds, different cities
And time is taking its sweet time erasing you
And you’ve got your demons and darling
They all look like me, cause

We had…
A beautiful, magic love there
What a sad…
Beautiful, tragic love affair

Distance, timing, breakdown, fighting
Silence, the train runs off its tracks
Kiss me, try to fix it
Could you just try to listen?
Hang up, give up and for the life of us
We can’t get back…

A beautiful magic love there
What a sad…
Beautiful, tragic, beautiful, tragic
Beautiful…

We had…
A beautiful, magic love there
What a sad…
Beautiful, tragic love affair

We had…
A beautiful, magic love there
What a sad…
Beautiful, tragic love affair

The Lucky One (Taylor’s Version)

The Lucky One (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

New to town with a made up name
In the angel’s city chasing fortune and fame
And the camera flashes make it look like a dream
You had it figured out since you were in school
Everybody loves pretty, everybody loves cool
So overnight, you look like a 60s queen
Another name goes up in lights
Like diamonds in the sky…

And they’ll tell you now
You’re the lucky one
Yeah, they’ll tell you now
You’re the lucky one
But can you tell me now
You’re the lucky one
Oh, oh, oh…

Now it’s big black cars and Riviera views
And your lover in the foyer doesn’t even know you
And your secrets end up splashed on the news front page
And they tell you that you’re lucky but you’re so confused
Cause you don’t feel pretty, you just feel used
And all the young things line up to take your place
Another name goes up in lights
You wonder if you’ll make it out alive

And they’ll tell you now
You’re the lucky one
Yeah, they’ll tell you now
You’re the lucky one
But can you tell me now
You’re the lucky one
Oh, oh, oh…

It was a few years later I showed up here
And they still tell the legend of how you disappeared
How you took the money and your dignity and got the hell out
They say you bought a bunch of land somewhere
Chose the rose garden over Madison Square
And it took some time, but I understand it now…
Cause now my name is up in lights
But I think you got it right

Let me tell you now
You’re the lucky one
Let me tell you now
You’re the lucky one
Let me tell you now
You’re the lucky one
Oh, oh, oh…

And they’ll tell you now
You’re the lucky one
Yeah, they’ll tell you now
You’re the lucky one
But can you tell me now
You’re the lucky one
Oh, oh, oh…

Everything Has Changed (Taylor’s Version) [feat. Ed Sheeran]

Everything Has Changed (Taylor’s Version) [feat. Ed Sheeran]
(Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift)

All I knew this morning when I woke
Is I know something now, know something now I didn’t before
And all I’ve seen since 18 hours ago
Is green eyes and freckles
And your smile in the back of my mind making me feel like
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you, know you, know you…

Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

And all my walls stood tall, painted blue
I’ll take ‘em down, take ‘em down
And open up the door for you
And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies, the beautiful kind
Makin’ up for lost time, takin’ flight making me feel like
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you, know you, know you…

Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

Come back and tell me why
I’m feeling like I’ve missed you all this time
And meet me there tonight
Let me know that it’s not all in my mind
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you, know you, know you…

Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

All I know is we said hello
So dust off your highest hopes
All I know is pouring rain
And everything has changed
All I know is a new found grace
All my days I’ll know your face
All I know since yesterday
Is everything has changed

Starlight (Taylor’s Version)

Starlight (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

I said oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night
Never would forget how he moved
The whole place
Was dressed to the nines
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight
Like we’re made of starlight

I met Bobby on the Boardwalk
Summer of ’45
Picked me up late one nigHt
Out the window we were seventeen
And crazy, running wild wild
Can’t remember what song it was playing when we walked in
The night we snuck into a
Yacht club party, pretending to
Be a duchess and a prince

And I said oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night
Never would forget how he moved
The whole place
Was dressed to the nines
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

He said, “Look at you, worrying too much about things you can’t change.
You’ll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way.”
He was trying to skip rocks on the ocean, saying to me
“Don’t you see the starlight, starlight? Don’t you dream impossible things?”

Like oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night
Never would forget how he moved
The whole place
Was dressed to the nines
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

Ooh ooh, he’s talking crazy
Ooh ooh, dancing with me
Ooh ooh, we could get married
Have ten kids and teach them how to dream

Oh my, what a marvelous tune
It was the best night
Never would forget how he moved
The whole place
Was dressed to the nines
And we were dancing, dancing
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight
Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

Like we dream impossible dreams
Like starlight, starlight
Like we dream impossible dreams
Don’t you see the starlight, starlight?
Don’t you dream impossible things?

Begin Again (Taylor’s Version)

Begin Again (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

Begin Again
(Taylor Swift)

Took a deep breath in the mirror
He didn’t like it when I wore high heels
But I do
Turn the lock and put my headphones on
He always said he didn’t get this song
But I do, I do
Walked in expecting you’d be late
But you got here early and you stand and wave I walk to you
You pull my chair out and help me in
And you don’t know how nice that is
But I do

But you throw your head back laughing
Like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause
He never did
I’ve been spending the last 8 months
Thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe
I watched it begin again

You said you never met one girl who
Had as many James Taylor records as you
But I do
We tell stories and you don’t know why
I’m coming off a little shy
But I do

And you throw your head back laughing
Like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause
He never did
I’ve been spending the last 8 months
Thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe
I watched it begin again

And we walked down the block, to my car
And I almost brought him up
But you start to talk about the movies
That your family watches every single Christmas
And I want to talk about that
And for the first time
What’s past is past

Cause you throw your head back laughing
Like a little kid
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause
He never did
I’ve been spending the last 8 months
Thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe
I watched it begin again

But on a Wednesday in a cafe
I watched it begin again

The Moment I Knew (Taylor’s Version)

The Moment I Knew (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

You should’ve been there.
Should’ve burst through the door
With that “baby I’m right here” smile
And it would’ve felt like
A million little shining stars had just aligned
And I would’ve been so happy.

Christmas lights glisten
I’ve got my eye on the door
Just waiting for you to walk in
But the time is ticking
People ask me how I’ve been
As I comb back through my memory
How you said you’d be here
You said you’d be here..

And it was like slow motion.
Standing there in my party dress
In red lipstick, with no one to impress
And they’re all laughing
As I’m looking around the room
But there was one thing missing
And that was the moment I knew

 And the hours pass by.
Now I just want to be alone
But your close friends always seem to know
When there’s something really wrong
So they follow me down the hall
And there in the bathroom
I try not to fall apart
And the sinking feeling starts
As I say hopelessly
He said he’d be here..

And it was like slow motion.
Standing there in my party dress
In red lipstick, with no one to impress
And they’re all laughing
And asking me about you
But there was one thing missing
And that was the moment I knew

What do you say when tears are streaming down your face
In front of everyone you know
And what do you do when the one who means the most to you
Is the one who didn’t show..

You should’ve been here
And I would’ve been so.. happy

And it was like slow motion.
Standing there in my party dress
In red lipstick, with no one to impress
And they’re all standing around me singing
Happy birthday to you
But there was one thing missing
And that was the moment I knew

Ooh, I knew.

You called me later
And said “I’m sorry I didn’t make it”
And I said “I’m sorry too.”
And that was the moment I knew.

Come Back… Be Here (Taylor’s Version)

Come Back… Be Here (Taylor’s Version)
[Dan Wilson, Taylor Swift]

You said it in a simple way
4am, the second day
How strange that I don’t know you at all
Stumble through the long goodbye
One last kiss then you catch your flight
Right when I was just about to fall

I told myself: “Don’t get attached”
But in my mind I play it back
Spinning faster than the plane that took you

And this is when the feeling sinks in
I don’t wanna miss you like this
Come back… be here
Come back… be here
I guess you’re in New York today
I don’t wanna need you this way
Come back… be here
Come back… be here

The delicate, beginning watch
The feeling you can know so much
Without knowing anything at all
And now that I can put this down
If I had known what I know now
I never would’ve played so nonchalant
Taxi cabs and busy streets
They never bring you back to me
I can’t help but wish you took me with you

And this is when the feeling sinks in
I don’t wanna miss you like this
Come back… be here
Come back… be here
I guess you’re in London today
And I don’t wanna need you this way
Come back… be here
Come back… be here

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

This is falling in love in the cruelest way
This is falling for you when you are worlds away

In New York… be here
But you’re in London and I break down
Cause it’s not fair that you’re not around

This is when the feeling sinks in
I don’t wanna miss you like this
Come back… be here
Come back… be here
I guess you’re in New York today
And I don’t wanna need you this way
Come back… be here
Come back… be here

Oh, oh
I don’t wanna miss you like this
Oh, oh

Come back… be here
Come back… be here

Girl At Home (Taylor’s Version)

Girl At Home (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
Ah-ah,
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

I don’t even know her
But I feel a responsibility to do what’s upstanding and right
It’s kinda like a code, yeah
And you’ve been getting closer and closer
And crossing so many lines
And it would be a fine proposition
If I was a stupid girl
But honey I am no one’s exception
This I have previously learned.

So don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
I see you turn off your phone
Now you’ve got me alone, and I say
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

I just want to make sure
You understand perfectly you’re the kind of man who makes me sad
While she waits up, you chase down the newest thing
And take for granted what you have
And it would be a fine proposition
If I was a stupid girl
And yeah, I might go with it
If I hadn’t once been just like her.

Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
I see you turn off your phone
Now you’ve got me alone, and I say
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

Oh…
Oh…
Oh…
Oh…

Call a cab, lose my number
You’re about to lose your girl
Call a cab, lose my number
Let’s consider this lesson learned

Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
Ah-ah
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
Wanna see you pick up your phone
And tell her you’re coming home
Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

Don’t look at me, you got a girl at home
And everybody knows that, everybody knows that
It would be a fine proposition
If I hadn’t once been just like her.

State Of Grace (Acoustic Version) (Taylor’s Version)

State Of Grace (Acoustic Version) (Taylor’s Version)
[Taylor Swift]

I’m walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives
And all we know is touch and go
We alone with our changing minds
We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds, or fades in time

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same

You come around and the armor falls
Pierce the room like a cannon ball
Now all we know, is don’t let go
We are alone just you and me
Up in your room and our slates are clean
Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes

So you were never a saint
And I love the Sade’s are wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mostly of broken hearts
But this love is raging and wild

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same again

This is a state of grace
This is a worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
These are the hands of fate
You’re my Achilles heel
This is the golden age of something good
And right and real

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll never be the same

This is a state of grace
This is a worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right

Ronan (Taylor’s Version)

Ronan (Taylor’s Version)
[Maya Thompson, Taylor Swift]

I remember your bare feet down the hallway
I remember your little laugh
Race cars on the kitchen floor
Plastic dinosaurs, I love you to the moon and back

I remember your blue eyes looking into mine
Like we had our own secret club
I remember you dancing before bed time
Then jumping on me waking me up
I can still feel you hold my hand
Little man, and even the moment I knew
You fought it hard like an army guy
Remember I leaned in and whispered to you

Come on baby with me
We’re gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

I remember the drive home when the blind hope
Turned to crying and screaming, “Why?”
Flowers piled up in the worst way
No one knows what to say about a beautiful boy who died

And it’s about to be Halloween
You could be anything you wanted if you were still here
I remember the last day when I kissed your face
I whispered in your ear

Come on baby with me
We’re gonna fly away from here
Out of this curtained room in this hospital
We’ll just disappear
Come on baby with me
We’re gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

What if I’m standing in your closet trying to talk to you?
What if I kept the hand me downs you won’t grow into?
And what if I really thought some miracle would see us through?
But what if the miracle was even getting one moment with you

Come on baby with me
We’re gonna fly away from here
Come on baby with me
We’re gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

I remember your bare feet down the hallway
I love you to the moon and back

Better Man (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)

Better Man (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)
[Taylor Swift]

I know I’m probably better off on my own
Than lovin’ a man who didn’t know what he had when he had it
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic

I wish it wasn’t 4AM, standing in the mirror
Saying to myself, “You know you had to do it”
I know the bravest thing I ever did was run

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man

I know I’m probably better off all alone
Than needing a man who could change his mind
At any given minute
And it was always on your terms
I waited on every careless word
Hoping they might turn sweet again
Like it was in the beginning

But your jealousy, oh, I can hear it now
Talking down to me like I’d always be around
Push my love away like it was some kind of loaded gun
Oh, you never thought I’d run

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye, like the back of my hand
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man

I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have
And I gave to you my best and we both know you can’t say that
I wish you were a better man
I wonder what we would’ve become
If you were a better man
We might still be in love
If you were a better man
You would’ve been the one
If you were a better man
Yeah, yeah

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye, like the back of my hand
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man
(Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again)
We might still be in love, if you were a better man
(But I just miss you and I just wish you were a better man)
Yeah, yeah
I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
But I just miss you and I just wish you were a better man
A better man

We might still be in love
If you were a better man
You would’ve been the one
If you were a better man

Nothing New (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) [feat. Phoebe Bridgers]

Nothing New (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) [feat. Phoebe Bridgers]
(Taylor Swift)

They tell you while you’re young
“Girls, go out and have your fun”
Then they hunt and slay the ones who actually do it
Criticize the way you fly
When you’re soaring through the sky
Shoot you down and then they sigh
And say, “She looks like she’s been through it”
Lord, what will become of me
Once I’ve lost my novelty?

I’ve had too much to drink tonight
And I know it’s sad but this is what I think about
And I wake up in the middle of the night
It’s like I can feel time moving
How can a person know everything at eighteen
But nothing at twenty-two?
And will you still want me when I’m nothing new?

How long will it be cute, all this crying in my room?
When you can’t blame it on my youth
And roll your eyes with affection
And my cheeks are growing tired
From turning red and faking smiles
Are we only biding time ’til I lose your attention
And someone else lights up the room?
People love an ingénue

I’ve had too much to drink tonight
How did I go from growing up to breaking down?
And I wake up in the middle of the night
It’s like I can feel time moving
How can a person know everything at eighteen
But nothing at twenty-two?
And will you still want me when I’m nothing new?

I know someday I’m gonna meet her
It’s a fever dream
The kind of radiance you only have at seventeen
She’ll know the way and then she’ll say she got the map from me
I’ll say I’m happy for her then I’ll cry myself to sleep
Oh woah, oh woah, oh, oh

I’ve had (I’ve had) too much to drink tonight
But I wonder if they’ll miss me once they drive me out
I wake up (Wake up) in the middle of the night
And I can feel time moving
How can a person know everything at eighteen
But nothing at twenty-two?
And will you still want me, will you still want me
Will you still want me when I’m nothing new?

[Patrick Monahan, Taylor Swift]

What about your promises, promises?
What about your promises, promises, promises? (No)

What a shame
Didn’t wanna be the one that got away, yeah
Big mistake, you broke the sweetest promise
That you never should have made

I’m here on the kitchen floor
You call, but I won’t hear it
You said, “No one else”
How could you do this, babe? (What about your promises, promises?)
You really blew this, babe
We ain’t getting through this one, babe
This is the last time I’ll ever call you, babe (This is the last time, this is the last time)
This is the last time I’ll ever call you, babe
(What about your promises, promises, promises?)

What a waste
Takin’ down the pictures and the plans we made, yeah
And it’s strange how your face doesn’t look so innocent
Your secret has its consequence and that’s on you, babe

I break down every time you call
We’re a wreck, you’re the wrecking ball
We said, “No one else”
How could you do this, babe? (What about your promises, promises?)

You really blew this, babe
We ain’t getting through this one, babe
This is the last time I’ll ever call you, babe (This is the last time, this is the last time)
This is the last time I’ll ever call you (Promises)

Since you admitted it, (Oh) I keep picturing (Oh)
Her lips on your neck, (Oh) I can’t unsee it (Oh)
I hate that because of you, (Oh) I can’t love you, babe (Oh, oh, oh….)
What a shame didn’t want to be the one that got away
How could you do this, babe?

You really blew this, babe
We ain’t getting through this one, babe
This is the last time I’ll ever call you, babe (This is the last time, this is the last time)
This is the last time I’ll ever call you, babe

Message In A Bottle (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)

Message In A Bottle (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)
[Max Martin, Shellback, Taylor Swift]

I know that you like me
And it’s kinda frightening standin’ here waitin’, waitin’
And I became hypnotized by freckles and bright eyes, tongue-tied

But now you’re so far away and I’m down feelin’ like a face in the crowd
I’m reachin’ for you, terrified

‘Cause you could be the one that I love
I could be the one that you dream of
Message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you
You could be the one that I keep, and I
Can be the reason you can’t sleep at night
Mеssage in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ herе, hopin’ it gets to you

These days I’m restless
Workdays are endless, look how you made me, made me
But time moves faster, replaying your laughter, disaster

‘Cause now you’re so far away and I’m down feelin’ like a face in the crowd
I’m reachin’ for you, terrified

‘Cause you could be the one that I love
I could be the one that you dream of
Message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you
You could be the one that I keep, and I
Can be the reason you can’t sleep at night
Message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you

How is it in London?
Where are you while I’m wondering
If I’ll ever see you again?
You could be the one that I love, mmm
And now I’m standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you

‘Cause you could be the one that I love
I could be the one that you dream of
Message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you
You could be the one that I keep, and I
Can be the reason you can’t sleep at night (you can’t sleep at night)
Message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you

You could be the one that I love
You could be the one that I love, my love
And now I’m standin’, here hopin’ this gets to you

I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) [feat. Chris Stapleton] (Clean)

I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) [feat. Chris Stapleton]
(Lori McKenna, Taylor Swift)

3 AM and I’m still awake, I’ll bet you’re just fine
Fast asleep in your city that’s better than mine
And the girl in your bed has a fine pedigree
And I’ll bet your friends tell you she’s better than me, huh

Well, I tried to fit in with your upper-crust circles
Yeah, they let me sit in back when we were in love
Oh, they sit around talkin’ about the meaning of life
And the book that just saved ’em that I hadn’t heard of

But now that we’re done and it’s over
I bet you couldn’t believe
When you realized I’m harder to forget than I was to leave
And I bet you think about me

You grew up in a silver-spoon gated community
Glamorous, shiny, bright Beverly Hills
I was raised on a farm, no, it wasn’t a mansion
Just livin’ room dancin’ and kitchen table bills

But you know what they say, you can’t help who you fall for
And you and I fell like an early spring snow
But reality crept in, you said we’re too different
You laughed at my dreams, rolled your eyes at my jokes

Mr. Superior Thinkin’
Do you have all the space that you need?
I don’t have to be your shrink to know that you’ll never be happy
And I bet you think about me

I bet you think about me, yes
I bet you think about me

Oh, block it all out
The voices so loud, sayin’
“Why did you let her go?”
Does it make you feel sad
That the love that you’re lookin’ for
Is the love that you had?

Now you’re out in the world, searchin’ for your soul
Scared not to be hip, scared to get old
Chasing make-believe status, last time you felt free
Was when none of that mattered ’cause you were with me

But now that we’re done and it’s over
I bet it’s hard to believe
That it turned out I’m harder to forget than I was to leave
And, yeah, I bet you think about me

I bet you think about me, yes
I bet you think about me

I bet you think about me when you’re out
At your cool indie music concerts every week
I bet you think about me in your house
With your organic shoes and your million-dollar couch
I bet you think about me when you say
“Oh my god, she’s insane, she wrote a song about me”
I bet you think about me

Forever Winter (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)

Forever Winter (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)
[Mark Foster, Taylor Swift]

He says he doesn’t believe anything much he hears these days
He says, “Why fall in love, just so you can watch it go away?”
He spends most of his nights wishing it was how it used to be
He spends most of his flights getting pulled down by gravity
I call, just checking up on him
He’s up, 3 A.M., pacing
He says, “It’s not just a phase I’m in”
My voice comes out begging

All this time I didn’t know
You were breaking down
I’d fall to pieces on the floor
If you weren’t around
Too young to know it gets better
I’ll be summer sun for you forever
Forever winter if you go

He seems fine most of the time
Forcing smiles and never minds
His laugh is a symphony
When the lights go out, it’s hard to breathe
I pull at every thread trying to solve the puzzles in his head
Live my life scared to death he’ll decide to leave instead
I call, just checking up on him
He’s up, 5 A.M., wasted
Long gone, not even listening
My voice comes out screaming

All this time I didn’t know
You were breaking down
I’d fall to pieces on the floor
If you weren’t around
Too young to know it gets better
I’ll be summer sun for you forever
Forever winter if you go

If I was standing there in your apartment
I’d take that bomb in your head and disarm it
I’d say I love you even at your darkest and
Please don’t go

I didn’t know
You were breaking down
I’d fall to pieces on the floor
If you weren’t around
Too young to know it gets better
I’ll be summer sun for you forever
Forever winter if you go

I’ll be your summer sun forever
At 3 A.M., pacing
All this time I didn’t know
At 5 A.M., wasted
I’d be in pieces on the floor
Forever winter if you go

He says he doesn’t believe anything much he hears these days
I say, “Believe in one thing, I won’t go away”

Run (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) [feat. Ed Sheeran]Run (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) [feat. Ed Sheeran]
(Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift)

One, two, three, four

Give me the keys, I’ll bring the car back around
We shouldn’t be in this town
And my so-called friends, they don’t know
I’d drive away before I let you go
So give me a reason and don’t say no, no
There’s a chain ’round your throat, piece of paper where I wrote
“I’ll wait for you”
There’s a key on the chain, there’s a picture in a frame
Take it with you

And run, like you’d run from the law
Darling, let’s run
Run from it all
We can go where our eyes can take us
Go where no one else is, run
Ooh, we’ll run
Ooh, we’ll run
Ooh, we’ll run

So you laugh like a child
And I’ll sing like no one cares
No one to be, no one to tell
I could see this view a hundred times
Pale blue sky reflected in your eyes
So give me a reason and don’t say no, no
And the note from the locket, you keep it in your pocket
Since I gave it to you
There’s a heart on your sleeve
I’ll take it when I leave
And hold it for you

And run, like you’d run from the law
Darling, let’s run
Run from it all
We can go like they’re trying to chase us
Go where no one else is, run
Ooh, we’ll run
Ooh, we’ll run
Ooh, we’ll run

There’s been this hole in my heart
This thing was a shot in the dark
Say you’ll never let ’em tear us apart
And I’ll hold onto you while we run (And we run, and we run, and we run)

Like you’d run from the law (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Darling, let’s run (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Run from it all (And we run, and we run, and we run)
We can go where our eyes can take us (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Go where no one else is, run (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Ooh, we’ll run (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Ooh, we’ll run (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Ooh, we’ll run (And we run, and we run, and we run)
Ooh, and we’ll run

The Very First Night (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)

The Very First Night (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)
[Amund Bjørklund, Espen Lind, Taylor Swift]

I wish I could fly
I’d pick you up and we’d go back in time
I’d write this in the sky
I miss you like it was the very first night

And so it goes
Every weekend the same party
I never go alone
And I don’t seem broken hearted
My friends all say they know
Everything I’m going through
I drive down different roads
But they all lead back to you
‘Cause they don’t know about the night in the hotel
They weren’t riding in the car when we both fell
Didn’t read the note on the Polaroid picture
They don’t know how much I miss you

I wish I could fly
I’d pick you up and we’d go back in time
I write this in the sky
I miss you like it was the very first night

And so it was
We never saw it coming
Not trying to fall in love
But we did like children running
Back then we didn’t know
We were built to fall apart
We broke the status quo
Then we broke each other’s hearts
But don’t forget about the night out in L.A
Dance in the kitchen, chase me down through the hallway
No one knows about the words that we whisper
No one knows how much I miss you

I wish I could fly
I’d pick you up and we’d go back in time
I write this in the sky
I miss you like it was the very first night

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
To you, to you
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
To you, to you

I remember the night at the hotel
I was riding in the car when we both fell
I’m the one on the phone as you whisper
“Do you know how much I miss you?”

I wish that we could go back in time
And I’d say to you
I miss you like it was the very first night

I wish I could fly
I’d pick you up and we’d go back in time
I write this in the sky
I miss you like it was the very first night

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
To you, to you
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
To you, to you

All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) (Clean)

All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) (Clean)
[Liz Rose, Taylor Swift]

I walked through the door with you, the air was cold
But something ’bout it felt like home somehow
And I left my scarf there at your sister’s house
And you’ve still got it in your drawer, even now
Oh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gaze
We’re singing in the car, getting lost upstate
Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place
And I can picture it after all these days

And I know it’s long gone and
That magic’s not here no more
And I might be okay, but I’m not fine at all
Oh, oh, oh

‘Causе there we arе again on that little town street
You almost ran the red ’cause you were lookin’ over at me
Wind in my hair, I was there
I remember it all too well

Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed
And your mother’s telling stories ’bout you on the tee-ball team
You tell me ’bout your past, thinking your future was me
And you were tossing me the car keys, f*** the patriarchy
Key chain on the ground, we were always skipping town
And I was thinking on the drive down, any time now
He’s gonna say it’s love, you never called it what it was
‘Til we were dead and gone and buried
Check the pulse and come back swearing it’s the same
After three months in the grave
And then you wondered where it went to as I reached for you
But all I felt was shame and you held my lifeless frame

And I know it’s long gone and
There was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough
To forget why I needed to

‘Cause there we are again in the middle of the night
We’re dancing ’round the kitchen in the refrigerator light
Down the stairs, I was there
I remember it all too well
And there we are again when nobody had to know
You kept me like a secret but I kept you like an oath
Sacred prayer, and we’d swear
To remember it all too well, yeah

Well maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
‘Til you tore it all up
Running scared, I was there
I remember it all too well
And you call me up again
Just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
‘Cause I remember it all, all, all

They say all’s well that ends well
But I’m in a new hell every time you double-cross my mind
You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine
And that made me want to die
The idea you had of me, who was she?
A never-needy ever lovely jewel whose shine reflects on you
Not weeping in a party bathroom
Some actress asking me what happened, you, that’s what happened, you
You who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes
Sipping coffee like you’re on a late night show
But then he watched me watch the front door all night, willing you to come
And he said, “It’s supposed to be fun turning twenty-one”

Time won’t fly, it’s like I’m paralyzed by it
I’d like to be my old self again, but I’m still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone
But you keep my old scarf from that very first week
‘Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me
You can’t get rid of it
‘Cause you remember it all too well, yeah
‘Cause there we are again when I loved you so
Back before you lost the one real thing you’ve ever known

It was rare, I was there
I remember it all too well
Wind in my hair, you were there
You remember it all
Down the stairs, you were there
You remember it all
It was rare, I was there
I remember it all too well

And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goes
I’ll get older but your lovers stay my age
From when your Brooklyn broke my skin and bones
I’m a soldier who’s returning half her weight
And did the twin flame bruise paint you blue?
Just between us, did the love affair maim you too?
Cause in this city’s barren cold, I still remember the first fall of snow
And how it glistened as it fell, I remember it all too well

Just between us, did the love affair maim you all too well?
Just between us, do you remember it all too well?
Just between us, I remember it (Just between us) all too well
Wind in my hair, I was there, I was there
Down the stairs, I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer, I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it all too well
Wind in my hair, I was there, I was there
Down the stairs, I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer, I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it
Wind in my hair, I was there, I was there
Down the stairs, I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer, I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it
Wind in my hair, I was there, I was there
Down the stairs, I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer, I was there, I was there
It was rare, you remember it

A Message From Taylor (Apple Music Bonus Track)

A Message From Taylor (Apple Music Bonus Track)

Musically and lyrically, Red resembled a heart-broken person
It was all over the place
A fractured mosaic of feelings that somehow all fit together in the end
Happy, free, confused, lonely, devastated, euphoric, wild
And tortured by memories past
These are the original thirty songs that were meant for Red
I love you guys
