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

All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)
[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, fuck 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

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

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.

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

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

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
