I’d Lie

I’d Lie lryic

I don’t think that passenger seat
Has ever looked this good to me
He tells me about his night
And I count the colors in his eyes
He’ll never fall in love he swears
As he runs his fingers through his hair
I’m laughing cause I hope he’s wrong
I don’t think it ever crossed his mind
He tells a joke I fake a smile
That I know all his favorite songs
And..

I could tell you his favorite colors green
He loves to argue, born on the seventeenth
His sister’s beautiful, he has his father’s eyes
And if you ask me if I love him,
I’d lie

He looks around the room
Innocently overlooks the truth
Shouldn’t a light go on?
Doesn’t he know I’ve had him memorized for so long?
He sees everything black and white
Never let nobody see him cry
I don’t let nobody see me wishing he was mine

I could tell you his favorite colors green
He loves to argue, born on the seventeenth
His sister’s beautiful, he has his father’s eyes
And if you ask me if I love him,
I’d lie

He stands there then walks away
My god if I could only say
I’m holding every breathe for you…

He’d never tell you but he can play guitar
I think he can see through everything
But my heart
First thought when I wake up is
My god he’s beautiful
So I put on my make up
And pray for a miracle

Yes I could tell you his favorite colors green
He loves to argue oh and it kills me
His sisters beautiful he has his father’s eyes
And if you asked me if I love him
If you ask me if I love him
I’d lie

Your Anything

Your Anything lyrics

I bet you lie awake at night trying to make up your sweet mind
Wonderin if you’ll ever find just what you want
A hometown number one
Or a california loaded gun
But you’ll only get one
Thats what you thought
And heres what you got

I could be your favorite blue jeans
With the holes in the knees
In the bottom of the top drawer
I could be your little beauty queen
Just a little out of reach
Or the girl living next door
I’ll be your angel giving up her wings
If thats what you need
I’d give everything to be your anything
Be your anything

If you want hard to get
If you want
All you have to do is let me know
If you want a bumby ride
Or someone with a softer side
Either one will be alright
Just let me know
Cause this is how it goes

I could be your favorite blue jeans
With the holes in the knees
In the bottom of the top drawer
I could be your little beauty queen
Just a little out of reach
Or the girl living next door
I’ll be your angel giving up her wings
If thats what you need
I’d give everything to be your anything

It’s not like i’m giving up who i am for you
But with someone like you it’s so easy to do

I could be your favorite blue jeans
With the holes in the knees
In the bottom of the top drawer
I could be your little beauty queen
Just a little out of reach
Or the girl living next door
I’ll be your angel giving up her wings
If thats what you need
Thats what you need

I could be your favorite blue jeans
With the holes in the knees
In the bottom of the top drawer
I could be your little beauty queen
Just a little out of reach
Or the girl living next door
I’ll be your angel giving up her wings
If thats what you need
I’d give everything to be your anything

Your Face

Your Face lyrics

I heard a song tonight on the radio
Another girl sings about a boy
She see his face in every space, every room
And I know that if I turn around you won’t be there
If I close my eyes, will you be there?

I don’t wanna lose your face
And I don’t wanna wake up one day
And not remember what time erased
And I don’t wanna turn around
Cuz I’m not scared of what love gave me and took away
And I don’t wanna lose your face

I got a picture of you in my bedroom
And I hope it never falls
I hope I never lose that feeling
I used to get whenever you’d call
And now I wonder to myself
Who were you, where are you
Were you ever here at all?

I don’t wanna lose your face
And I don’t wanna wake up one day
And not remember what time erased
And I don’t wanna turn around
Cuz I’m not scared of what love gave me and took away
And I don’t wanna lose your face

The girl in the song had it so good
I wish I could close my eyes and see you
I wish the sky had your face
And the oceans had your eyes
And the sunset had your lips
And I had you
O-whoa, yeah

I don’t wanna lose your face
I don’t wanna wake up one day
And not remember what time erased
And I don’t wanna turn around
Cuz I’m not scared of what love gave me and took away
And I don’t wanna lose your face

Oh no no
I don’t wanna lose your face
And I don’t wanna turn around
Oh oh oh ooh yeah
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh yeah

Baby Don’t Break My Heart Slow

Baby Don’t Break My Heart Slow lyrics

I like the way you wanted me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you needed me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken do you mean
Do you mean what you say
When you say our love could last forever

But I’d rather you be mean than love and lie
I’d rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I’d rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don’t you break my heart slow

I like the way you’d hold me
Every night for so long baby
I like the way you’d sing to me
Every time things got rocky

I was believing in you
Was I mistaken do you say
Do you say what you mean
When you say our love could last forever

Cause I’d rather you be mean than love and lie
I’d rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I’d rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don’t you break my heart slow

You would run around and lead me on forever
While I stay at home still thinking we’re together
I wanted our love to last forever

But I’d rather you be mean than love and lie
I’d rather hear the truth and have to say goodbye
I’d rather take a blow at least then I would know
But baby don’t you break my heart slow
Baby don’t you break my heart slow

Our Last Night (Cover)

Our Last Night (Cover) lyrics

We were standing in an empty room
The moonlight was falling
You were holding my hand when the car pulled up for you
And I could have spent a life with you
But those days were over
You were calling my name when your face faded from view

And wasn’t it you who told me the sun would always chase the day
And wasn’t it you who told me:

Angels fly in the air tonight
Saying wasn’t it just like swimming out on the lake?
And stars collide and the air’s alive
Or was it just like those promises that you made
On our last night?

I remember waking up with you
The days doing nothing
You meant more to me then than I think you ever knew.
But you were gonna be a doctor, movie star
A poet at a Nobel seminar
I hope the world never tore that out of you

Cause wasn’t it you who told me the sun would always chase the day
Yeah wasn’t it you who told me:

Angels fly in the air tonight
Saying wasn’t it just like swimming out on the lake?
And stars collide and the air’s alive
Or was it just like those promises that you made
On our last night?

And what ever happened to the things you loved
And the songs we played, and the indian days
Whatever happened to the things you gave away?
Like Harold and Maude and singing

I was waving as you drove away
The sunlight was falling
You were writing backwards in a dusty window pane

Angels fly in the air tonight
and wasn’t it just like swimming out on the lake?
oh oh yeah
And stars collide and the air’s alive
Or was it just like those promises that you made
On our last night?
on our last night
oh oh oh oh oh

Permanent Marker

Permanent Marker lyrics

I know he loved you
A long time ago
I ain’t jealous of you
Just thought you should know

You were never good enough for him
Or anything like me
So you might as well sit back
Cuz I ain’t tryin to show maturity

X is the shape I drew
Through your face
In permanent marker
Oh ya
Just like the mark you knew you were makin’
Who do you think you are
To write on his heart
In permanent marker

I found those pictures
Of you in that green dress
Sure had a good time
Cleaning up that mess

He found 30 other pieces
but he’ll never find them all
Tried to tape them back together
Now he knows to keep it off the wall

X is the shape I drew
Through your face
In permanent marker
Oh
Just like the mark you knew you were makin’
Who do you think you are
To write on his heart

X is the shape I drew
Through your face
In permenant marker
Oh ya
Just like the mark that you knew that you were makin’
Who do you think you are
To write on his heart
In permanent marker
In permanent marker
Oh, permanent marker, yeah

Thug Story (Feat. T. Pain)

Thug Story (Feat. T. Pain) lyrics

Hey, hey T. Swizzle (T. Swizzle)
T. Bizzle (T. Bizzle)

I’m like 8 foot 4, blond hair to the floor
You shorties never thought I dreamed about rapping hardcore

No I ain’t got a gun
No I never really been in a club
Still live with my parents
But I’m still a thug

I’m so gangsta you can find me baking cookies at night
You out clubbing, but I just caramel delight
T. Swift and T. Pain rappin on the same track
It’s a thug story tell me can you handle that

I had a dream last night I had high-top Nikes
I had diamonds in my mouth, and diamonds on my mic
By the time I woke up I was singing “I’m on a boat”

Cuz I’m a singer turned rapper
Shorty I’m a make ya
Straight to the top, yo
Shorty I’ma take ya

You can call me T. Sweezy now I’m a rap star
It’s a thug story now tell them who you are

Singer turned gangsta
You don’t wanna fight me
Straight to the top
In my extra small white tee

T. swift and T. Pain all up on the same track
It’s a thug story tell me now can you get with that

What! what! I knit sweaters yo!
What! what! don’t test me [bleep]

Hey hold on, hold on I didn’t even say anything
What?
I said “yo”a
Yup
You guys bleeped me and I didn’t even say anything
I didn’t even swear
She didn’t even swear.
Hello?
Ughhh.

Monologue Song (La La La)

Monologue Song (La La La) – From SNL lyrics
(Taylor Swift)

I like glitter and sparkly dresses
But I’m not gonna talk about that
In my monologue
I like baking and things that smell like winter
But I’m not gonna talk about that
In my monologue

La la la
La la la

I like writing songs about douche bags who cheat on me
But I’m not gonna say that
In my monologue
I like writing their names into songs so they’re ashamed to go in public
But I’m not gonna say that
In my monologue

La la…La la la la la
This is…my musical monologue

You might think I’d bring up Joey that guy who broke up with me on the phone
But I’m not gonna mention him
In my monologue
Hey Joey! I’m doing real well
Tonight I’m hosting SNL
But I’m not gonna brag about that
In my monologue

La la la.
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha
La la la

And if you’re wonder if I might be dating the werewolf from Twilight
(Waves and mouths “Hi Taylor” and blows him a kiss and winks)
I’m not gonna comment on that
In my monologue

La la…La la la la la
This is…my musical monologue

You might be expecting me to say…something bad about Kayne…
And how he ran up on the stage…and ruined my VMA monologue (Inhales and sighs)
But there’s nothing more to say
Cause everything’s okay I’ve got security lining the stage…
This is my SNL monologue

La la…La la la la la
This is…my SNL monologue
La la…La la la la la
That was…my SNL monologue

American Boy

American Boy lyrics

American boy, living life as it goes
Sitting on the fence posts
Living in the light
American boy, living in the real world
Trying just to get the girl
Trying to survive

The simple things in life are always new
growing up on Sand Hill avenue and
Mama makes her cookies and daddy’s just
the greatest living hero that ever was
Nothing in this world can ever once destroy
the hope of an American boy

Living off of bar tips, trying for relationships
looking for the love
Suddenly he finds an American beauty
suddenly the picture meets, she’s sent from above

The simple things in life are always new
growing up on Sand Hill avenue and
Mama makes her cookies and daddy’s just
the greatest living hero that ever was
Nothing in this world can ever once destroy
the dream of an American boy

American boy, raising little babies
hearing daddy maybe, I’ll be like you
Suddenly life, seems just like a new toy
This grown up, American boy

The simple things in life are always new
growing up on Grand View avenue and
Mama makes her cookies and daddy’s just
the greatest living hero that ever was
Nothing in the world can ever once destroy
No nothing in the world can ever once destroy
the hope of an American boy

Can I Go With You?

Can I Go With You? lyrics

Any day now they’re talking war
I can see the look that’s in your eyes
They’re not talking a week or two
Oh, daddy can I go with you?
Oh, daddy can I go with you?

You pack a suitcase
And take a picture from the wall
I always knew this time would come
When I ask how long you think you’re gonna be
You say “Eh, this crazy world’s come undone”

Summer’s over and the leaves begin to fall
And another winter’s on the way
I knew I wasn’t gonna take this very well
But I’d give anything to have you here today

Everyday now they’re talking war
I know this time has been like it’s never been before
We’re not talking about a week or two
Oh, daddy can I go with you?
Oh, daddy can I go with you?
Oh, daddy can I go with you?

Lucky You

Lucky You lyrics

There’s a little girl in this little town
With a little too much heart to go around
Live forever, never say never
You can do better, that’s what she says

Mama named her Lucky on a starlit night
A rabbit foot in her pocket, she dances in spite of
The fact that she’s different and yet she’s the same
And she says do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
Lucky you, lucky you
Do do do do do do do do

She sings her little song
She walks along a little
Pathway headed for the skies
Left her travels, lives they unravel
Mind over matter, that’s what she says

Mama named her Lucky on a starlit night
A rabbit foot in her pocket, she dances in spite of
The fact that she’s different and yet she’s the same
And she says do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do do
Lucky you, lucky you, lucky you
do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

Maybe she’ll sing you do do do do
Maybe she’ll bring you into the skies
Honey, she’ll love you
Funny how some view
Angels above you, aint so far away

Mama named her Lucky on a starlit night
A rabbit foot in her pocket, she dances in spite of
The fact that she’s different and yet she’s the same
And she says do do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
Lucky you, lucky you

Smokey Black Nights

Smokey Black Nights lyrics

Let’s watch the tide chase
The waves onto the sand
I wonder if a broken heart
Feel the warmth on my hand
And I wonder what a piece
Of driftwood has seen all through
His lifetime let’s walk away
The past through the smokey black nights

I’ve seen a million things
Spoke a million words
Now I only want to speak to you
Waiting for the words counting every bird
There’s nothing I’d rather do
On the Smokey black nights

Still through the haze
I can make out constellations
I’ll make one of you and me
As we sit in the sand
And I saw that sunset gleamin
As my eyes went wild let’s walk away
The past through the smokey black nights

I’ve played a thousand songs
Sang a thousand words
Now I only want to sing to you
Waited on a wire staring at the fire
There’s nothing I’d rather do
On the smokey black nights

I’ve walked a thousand miles
Smiled a thousand smiles
Now I only smile when I’m with you
Waiting for the words counting every bird
There’s nothing I’d rather do
On the Smokey black nights

So walk with me as the sweet wind dances
I’ll write a song for you and me
On the Smokey black nights

You Don’t Have to Call

You Don’t Have to Call lyrics

You don’t have to call me
And say you’re sorry
I’m already gone


You don’t have to call me
And break my heart
Each time I try moving on
Oh

You don’t have to call anymore
Oh, yeah
You don’t have to call baby

What to Wear

What to Wear lyrics

She’s looking in the mirror the moment’s getting nearer
She thinks about it as she walks her walk
Up and down the staircase, make up fresh on her face
She thinks about it as she talks her talk

School dance, first chance looking in the mirror
There’s one guy, she’s shy sees him through the mirror
And everybody looks at her she thinks about it

Blue dress, angel face looking in the mirror
Shoes, purse, hair tied back and you should see her
She’s got her magic floating through the air
Peace, love one thing leads into another
Dream big, aim small man you gotta love her
She’s got her hopes up got ’em up to there
Wondering what to wear

She’s standing in her bedroom he’ll be pulling up soon
She thinks about it when she sees headlights
Looking out the window she’s got her diary to show
That she’s been waiting for this all her life

First date, can’t wait looking in the mirror
Heart all wrapped up wait until he sees her
He’s looking right at her she thinks about it

Sixteen blue jeans, Abercrombie T-shirt
Shoes, purse, hair tied back and you should see her
She’s got her magic floating through the air
Peace, love one thing leads into another
Dream big, aim small man you gotta love her
She’s got her hopes up got ’em up to there
Wondering what to wear

The years went by the mirror saw her cry
She got up again, she got up again
The wind blew by the small town lights
She got up again

Move out, find out where the world can take her
Bright lights, late nights living for the greater
Move to Paris living on a prayer

Peace, love one thing leads into another
Dream big, aim small man you gotta love her
She’s got her hopes up got ’em up to there
She’s got her hopes up got ’em up to there
Wondering what to wear

Oh wondering what to wear

Sparks Fly (Original lyrics)

Sparks Fly (Original lyrics)

The way you move is like a full on rainstorm
And I’m a house of cards
You say my name for the first time, baby, and I
Fall in love in an empty bar

And you stood there in front of me just
Close enough to touch
Close enough to hope you couldn’t see
What I was thinking of

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby
As the lights go down
Gimme something that’ll haunt me when you’re not around
Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile

Well, reach out openhanded
And lead me out to that floor
Well, I don’t need more paper lanterns
Take me down, baby bring on the movie star

Cause my heart is beating fast
And you are beautiful
I could wait patiently but
I really wish you would

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby
As the lights go down
Gimme something that’ll haunt me when you’re not around
Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile

I’ll run my fingers through your hair
And watch the lights go wild
Just keep your beautiful eyes on me
Gonna drop this match tonight
Now lead me up the staircase
Won’t you whisper soft and slow?
I’d love to hate it but you make it like a fireworks show

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby
As the lights go down
Gimme something that’ll haunt me when you’re not around
Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile
And the sparks fly, oh baby smile
And the sparks fly

Back to December (Radio Edit)

Back to December (Radio Edit) lyrics

I’m so glad you made time to see me.
How’s life, tell me how’s your family
I haven’t seen them in a while.
You’ve been good, busier then ever.
We small talk, work and the weather
Your guard is up and I know why.

Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of your mind.
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night,
And I go back to December all the time.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
I go back to December all the time.

These days I haven’t been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leaving,
When your birthday passed and I didn’t call.
Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
Realized that I loved you in the fall.
And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind.
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye.

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night.
And I go back to December all the time.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
I go back to December all the time

I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right,
And how you held me in your arms that September night,
The first time you ever saw me cry.
Maybe this is wishful thinking,
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again I swear I’d love you right.
I’d go back in time and change it but I can’t
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.

But this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night,
And I go back to December.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December turn around and make it alright.
I go back to December all the time.

The Story of Us (Radio Edit)

The Story of Us (Radio Edit) lyrics

I used to think one day we’d tell the story of us,
How we met and how the sparks flew instantly
And people would say they’re the lucky ones
I used to know my place was the spot next to you,
Now I’m searching the room for an empty seat
Cause lately I don’t even know what page you’re on
Oh, a simple complication, miscommunications lead to fall out,
So many things I wish that you knew
So many walls that I can’t break through

Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room
And we’re not speaking
And I’m dying to know is it killing you like it’s killing me, yeah
And I don’t know what to say since a twist of fate when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
Next chapter

How did we end up this way?
See me nervously pulling of my clothes and trying to look busy
And you’re doing your best to avoid me
I’m starting to think one day I’ll tell the story of us
How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
But you held your pride like I should have held mine,
Oh, I’m scared to see the ending why are we pretending this is nothing
I’d tell you I miss you but I don’t know how
Ive never heard silence quite this loud.

Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room
And we’re not speaking
And I’m dying to know is it killing you like it’s killing me, yeah
I don’t know what to say since a twist of fate when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

This is looking like a contest of who can act like they care less
But I liked it better when you were on my side
The battle is your hand now
But I would lay my armor down if you said you’d rather love then fight

So many things you wish that I knew
But the story of us might be ending soon

Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room
And we’re not speaking
And I’m dying to know is it killing you like it’s killing me, yeah
I don’t know what to say since a twist of fate, when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
The end

Breathless

Breathless
(Kevin Griffin)

Here you are now
Fresh from your war
Back from the edge of time
And all that you were
Stripped to the bone
I thought you’­d want to know

That when you feel the world is crashing
All around your feet
Come running headlong into my arms
Breathless
I’ll never judge you
I can only love you
Come now running headlong
Into my arms
Breathless

Lay down your guns
Too weak to run
Nothing can harm you here
Your precious heart
Broken and scarred
Somehow you made it through
I only ask that you won’t go again

When you feel the world is crashing
All around your feet
Come running headlong into my arms
Breathless
I’ll never judge you
I can only love you
Come now running headlong
Into my arms
Breathless

I’m so glad to see you smiling
So good to hear your laugh
I think that you’ve found you even
Missed yourself
I’m only asking this because I think that
Truth be told
Oh, you’ll never go again
Again

When you feel the world is crashing
All around your feet
Come running headlong into my arms
Breathless
I’ll never judge you
I can only love you
Come now running headlong
Into my arms
Breathless
Breathless

Picture to Burn (Alternate Version) [Rhapsody – Single]

Picture to Burn (Alternate Version) [Rhapsody – Single]
(Taylor Swift/Liz Rose)

State the obvious
I didn’t get my perfect fantasy
I realized you love yourself
More that you could ever love me
So go and tell your friends
That I’m obsessive and crazy
That’s fine, I’ll tell mine you’re gay
And by the way

I hate that stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I’m concerned
You’re just another picture to burn

There’s no time for tears
I’m just sitting here planning my revenge
Nothing stopping me
From going out with all of your best friends
And if you come around saying sorry to me
My daddy’s going to show you how sorry you’ll be

Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
In case you haven’t heard
You’re just another picture to burn

And if you’re missing me
You better keep it to yourself
Cause coming back around here
Would be bad for your health

Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You’re a redneck, heartbreak
Who’s really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I’m concerned or
In case you haven’t heard
You’re knocking on a slammed door
Just another picture to burn
Burn, burn, burn, baby burn
You’re just another picture to burn

Chaperone Dads lyrics

Oooh
Chaperone Dads

I’ve mastered the tambourine

Oooh ooh
Just go off of work
The last thing you do is,
Wanna do is,
Go and listen to me talk about some break up

Chaperone Dads

You’re doing the right thing

Oooh Chaperone Dad

Remember when the tickets went on sale
Your daughters 14th birthday
And you got her two tickets

And she said, ‘Can I have some more, cuz my friends and I all want to go, Dad, you don’t have to go but you know you gotta go and Chaperone Dad.

You Belong With Me (Pop Remix)

You Belong with Me (Pop Remix)
[Liz Rose, Taylor Swift]

You’re on the phone with your girlfriend, She’s upset
She’s going off about something that you said
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, whatcha 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 that?
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

Back to December (Pop Mix)

Back to December (Pop Mix)
[Taylor Swift]

I’m so glad you made time to see me.
How’s life, tell me how’s your family
I haven’t seen them in a while.
You’ve been good, busier then ever.
We small talk, work and the weather
Your guard is up and I know why.

Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of your mind.
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night,
And I go back to December all the time.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
I go back to December all the time.

These days I haven’t been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leaving,
When your birthday passed and I didn’t call.
Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
Realized that I loved you in the fall.
And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind.
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye.

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night.
And I go back to December all the time.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
I go back to December all the time

I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right,
And how you held me in your arms that September night,
The first time you ever saw me cry.
Maybe this is wishful thinking,
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again I swear I’d love you right.
I’d go back in time and change it but I can’t
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.

But this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night,
And I go back to December.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December turn around and make it alright.
I go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
I go back to December all the time
All the time.

One Way Ticket (Because I Can)

One Way Ticket (Because I Can) [Cover]

Standing on the border
Looking out into the great unknown
I can feel my heart beating faster as I step out on my own
There’s a new horizon and the promise of favorable wind
I’m heading out tonight, traveling light
I’m gonna start all over again

And buy a one-way ticket on a west bound train
See how far I can go
I’m gonna go out dancing in the pouring rain
And talk to someone I don’t know
I will face the world around me
Knowing that I’m strong enough to let you go
And I will fall in love again
Because I can

Gonna climb the mountain
And look the eagle in the eye
I won’t let fear clip my wings and tell me how high I can fly
How could I have ever believed
That love had to be so blind
When freedom was waiting, down at the station
All I had to do was make up my mind

And buy a one-way ticket on a west bound train
See how far I can go
I’m gonna go out dancing in the pouring rain
And talk to someone I don’t know
I will face the world around me
Knowing that I’m strong enough to let you go
And I will fall in love again
Because I can

Well, I have walked through the fire
And crawled on my knees through the valley of the shadow of doubt
Then the truth came shining like a light on me and now I can see my way out

I’m gonna buy a one-way ticket on a west bound train
See how far I can go
I’m gonna go out dancing in the pouring rain
And talk to someone I don’t know

I’m gonna buy a one-way ticket on a west bound train
Gonna have my breakfast with some pink champagne
I’m gonna sail the ocean, I’m gonna spread my wings
I’m gonna climb that mountain, gonna do everything.

Hopelessly Devoted to You

Hopelessly Devoted to You (Cover)

Guess mine is not
The first heart broken
My eyes are not the first to cry
I’m not the first to know
There’s just no getting over you

You know I’m just
A fool who’s willing
To sit around and wait for you
But baby can’t you see
There’s nothin’ else for me to do
I’m hopelessly devoted to you

But now there’s nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I’m out of my head
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

My head is saying
Fool forget him
My heart is saying
Don’t let go
Hold on to the end
And that’s what I intend to do
I’m hopelessly devoted to you

But now there’s nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside

I’m out of my head
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

National Anthem

The National Anthem

Oh, say, can you see
By the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d
At the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars
Thro’ the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watch’d
Were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets’ red glare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro’ the night
That our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free
And the home of the brave?

There’s Your Trouble

There’s Your Trouble (Cover)

Should Have Been Different But
It Wasn’t Different, Was It
Same Old Story, Dear John, And So Long
Should Have Fit Like A Glove
Should Have Fit Like A Ring
Like A Diamond Ring
A Token Of True Love
Should Have All Worked Out
But It Didn’t
She Should Be Here Now
But She Isn’t

There’s Your Trouble, There’s Your Trouble
You Keep Seeing Double With The Wrong One
You Can’t See I Love You, You Can’t See She Doesn’t
But You Just Keep Holding On
There’s Your Trouble

So Now You’re Thinking ‘Bout
All You’re Missing — How
Deep You’re Sinking, Round And Round And Dragging Down
Why Don’t You Cash In Your Chips
Why Don’t You Call It A Loss
Not Such A Big Loss, Chalk It Up to better luck
Could Have Been True Love
But It Wasn’t
It Should All Add Up
But It Doesn’t

There’s Your Trouble, There’s Your Trouble
You Keep Seeing Double With The Wrong One
You Can’t See I Love You, You Can’t See She Doesn’t
But You Just Keep Holding On
There’s Your Trouble

Should Have All Worked Out
But It Didn’t
She Should Be Here Now
But She Isn’t

There’s Your Trouble, There’s Your Trouble
You Keep Seeing Double With The Wrong One
You Can’t See I Love You, You Can’t See She Doesn’t
But You Just Keep Holding On
There’s Your Trouble

Am I Ready For Love

Am I Ready For Love (Cover)

Sometimes I wonder
How it’s gonna feel
Will my first love be true and real
Will I be ready when
My heart starts to fall
What will I do when my love comes to call

And my daddy tells me
That I light up his world
Everyday he says “Darlin,
You’re my best girl”
He tried to teach me
From the very start
The meaning of love
So nobody breaks my heart

Will my love come in a bowl of fire?
Will it be filled with hope and desire?
Will my love come in the pourin’ rain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for the boy?
Am I ready for love?
For love

I know I’m not a little
Girl anymore
Cuz I’m feeling things
I’ve never felt before
Sweet sensations
And anticipations
Calling commotion
To my emotions

And I hear the words
My daddy says to me
He said “be true to yourself
And keep your spirit free
And love will find you One way or another
Be good to yourself
And be good to each other”

Will my love come in a bowl of fire?
Will it be filled with hope and desire?
Will my love come in the pourin’ rain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for the boy?
Am I ready for love?

It’s a run around the world
And it’s moving so fast
Though I wanna find
A love that’s gonna last
A love so strong
That it can withstand
The weight of the world
In the palm of it’s hand

Will my love come in a bowl of fire?
Will it be filled with hope and desire?
Will my love come in the pourin’ rain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for the boy?
Am I ready for this game?
Am I ready for the kiss?
Am I ready for the stars?
Am I ready for the bliss?
Am I ready for love?

Here You Come Again

Here You Come Again (Cover)

Here you come again
Just when I’ve begun
To get myself together
You waltz right in the door
Just like you’ve done before
And wrap my heart
‘Round your little finger
Here you come again
Just when I’m about
To make it work without you

You look into my eyes
And light those dreamy eyes
And pretty soon I’m wonderin’
How I came to doubt you
All you gotta do
Is smile that smile
And there go all my defenses
Just leave it up to you
And in a little while
You’re messin’ up my mind
And fillin’ up my senses

Here you come again
Lookin’ better than a body
Has a right to
And shakin’ me up so
That all I really know
Is here you come again

All you gotta do
Is smile that smile
And there go all my defenses
Just leave it up to you
And in a little while
You’re messin’ up my mind
And fillin’ up my senses

Here you come again
Lookin’ better than a body
Has a right to
And shakin’ me up so
That all I really know
Is here you come again
Here I go
And here you come again
Here I go

Best Days of Your Life (with Kellie Pickler)

Best Days of Your Life (with Kellie Pickler)
[Kellie Pickler, Taylor Swift]

‘Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met till you were making me cry
And it’s just too bad you’ve already had the best days
The best days of your life

Ain’t it a shame
A shame that every time you hear my name
Brought up in a casual conversation
You can’t think straight?
And ain’t it sad
You can’t forget about what we had
Take a look at her and do you like what you see
Or do you wish it was me?

I’ll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it’s just too bad you’ve already had the best days
The best days of your life

And does she know
Know about the times you used to hold me
Wrapped me in your arms and how you told me
I’d be the only one?
I heard about
Yeah, someone told me once when you were out
She went a little crazy, ran her mouth about me
Ain’t jealousy funny?
Hey…!

‘Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it’s just too bad you’ve already had the best days
The best days of your
Life with me was a fairytale love
I was head over heels till you threw away us
And it’s just too bad you’ve already had the best days
The best days of your life

I heard you’re gonna get married, have a nice little family
Live out my dreams with someone new
But I’ve been told that a cheater is always a cheater
So I’ve got my pride and she’s got you
‘Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met till you were making me cry
And it’s just too bad you’ve already had the best days
The best days of your life

Of your life, oh, oh yeah
You’re gonna think of me
You’re gonna think of me in your life
Oh, oh yeah

It’s a shame, it’s a shame
It’s a shame, it’s a shame
It’s a shame, it’s a shame

Half of My Heart

Half of My Heart (with John Mayer)
[John Mayer]

I was born in the arms of imaginary friends
Free to roam, made a home out of everywhere I’ve been
Then you come crashing in, like the realest thing
Trying my best to understand all that your love can bring

Oh half of my heart’s got a grip on the situation
Half of my heart takes time
Half of my heart’s got a right mind to tell you
That I can’t keep loving you (Can’t keep loving you)
Oh, with half of my heart

I was made to believe I’d never love somebody else
I made a plan, stay the man who can only love himself
Lonely was the song I sang, ’til the day you came
Showing me another way and all that my love can bring

Oh half of my heart’s got a grip on the situation
Half of my heart takes time
Half of my heart’s got a right mind to tell you
That I can’t keep loving you (Can’t keep loving you)
Oh, with half of my heart
With half of my heart

Your faith is strong
But I can only fall short for so long
Down the road, later on
You will hate that I never gave more to you than half of my heart
But I can’t stop loving you
I can’t stop loving you
I can’t stop loving you
I can’t stop loving you
But I can’t stop loving you with half of my…

Half of my heart
Half of my heart

Half of my heart’s got a real good imagination
Half of my heart’s got you
Half of my heart’s got a right mind to tell you
That half of my heart won’t do

Half of my heart is a shotgun wedding to a bride with a paper ring
And half of my heart is the part of a man who’s never truly loved anything

Half of my heart
Half of my heart
Half of my heart
Half of my heart
Half of my heart
Half of my heart

Two is Better Than One (with Boys Like Girls)

Two is Better Than One (with Boys Like Girls)
[Martin Johnson]

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought
“Hey, you know, this could be something”

‘Cause everything you do and words you say
You know that it all takes my breath away
And now I’m left with nothing

So maybe it’s true
That I can’t live without you
Maybe two is better than one
There’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking two is better than one

I remember every look upon your face
The way you roll your eyes
The way you taste
You make it hard for breathing

‘Cause when I close my eyes and drift away
I think of you and everything’s okay
I’m finally now believing

That maybe it’s true
That I can’t live without you
Maybe two is better than one
There’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone
And I’m thinking two is better than one
Yeah, yeah

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought, “Hey,”

maybe it’s true
That I can’t live without you
Maybe two is better than one
There’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you’ve already got me coming undone

And I’m thinking
I can’t live without you
‘Cause, baby, two is better than one
There’s so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
But I’ll figure it out
When all is said and done
Two is better than one
Two is better than one

Fifteen (Pop Mix Edit)

Fifteen (Pop Mix Edit)
[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
But 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

Should’ve Said No (Live with the Jonas Brothers)

Should’ve Said No (Live with the Jonas Brothers)
[Taylor Swift]

Taylor:
It’s strange to think the songs we used to sing
The smiles, the flowers, everything is gone
Well, yesterday I found out about you
Even now just looking at you feels wrong
And you say that you’d take it all back, given one chance
It was a moment of weakness
And you said yes

You should’ve said no, you should’ve gone home
You should’ve thought

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
Twice before you let it all go

Taylor:
You should’ve known that word about what you did with her
Get back to me (Jonas Brothers: Get back to me)
And I should’ve been there in the back of your mind
I shouldn’t be

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
Asking myself why

Taylor:
You shouldn’t be begging for forgiveness at my feet
You should’ve said no, baby, and you might still have me

Jonas Brothers:
You can see that I’ve been crying

Taylor:
Baby, you know all the right things

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
To say

Taylor:
But do you honestly expect me to believe
We could ever be the same
You say that the past is the past

Jonas Brothers:
You need one chance

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
It was a moment of weakness
And you said yes

You should’ve said no, you should’ve gone home
You should’ve thought twice before you let it all go
You should’ve known

Taylor:
That word about what you did with her
Get back to me (Jonas Brothers: Get back to me)

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
And I should’ve been there in the back of your mind
I shouldn’t be asking myself why
You shouldn’t be begging for forgiveness at my feet
You should’ve said no,

Taylor:
Baby, and you might still have me
Oh…Whoo!

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
I can’t resist before you go
Tell me this was it worth it

Taylor:
Was she worth this

Jonas Brothers:
Nooo, no, noooo …..

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
You should’ve said no, you should’ve gone home
You should’ve thought twice before you let it all go
You should’ve known that word

Taylor:
About what you did with her
Get back to me (Jonas Brothers: Get back to me)

Taylor and Jonas Brothers:
And I should’ve been there in the back of your mind
I shouldn’t be asking myself why
You shouldn’t be begging for forgiveness at my feet
You should’ve said no

Taylor:
Baby, and you might still have me…

Jonas Brothers: Ladies and gentlemen, Taylor Swift!
Taylor: Thank you very much!

All Night Diner

All Night Diner lyrics

I wake up, I stretch out
I wonder what you’re doing right now
Yeah, I slept in my make-up again
Tell myself I must be crazy
Thinking about him
I find myself something decent to wear
Take the towel out of my hair
About that time, you called me
And I’m reminded
Without you I’d be

A stranger in an all night diner
Waiting for a love to find her
Lonely like a harbor light that’s never seen a boat
Like a line in an old love letter
No one ever wrote

I go to work, work all day
I’m a walking tape recorder
of everything you say
Walk to the car, dig out my keys
Start thinking if
You were with anyone but me

I’d be a stranger in an all night diner
Waiting for a love to find her
Lonely like a harbor that’s never seen a boat
Just a line in an old love letter
No one ever wrote

There you are
On the street
Just standing there
Waiting on me I
I show you my new shoes
You say you love them
Baby without you

I’d be a stranger in an all night diner
Waiting for a love to find her
Lonely like a harbor that’s never seen a boat
Just a line in an old love letter
No one ever wrote

I wake up, I stretch out
I wonder what you’re doing right now

Better Off

Better Off lyrics

I live down the street in a broken down house
And a car up on blocks in the driveway
The moment we meet, there was never a doubt
That we won’t forget this Sunday
It starts with a smile and a walk in miles
And it all leads to this – our first kiss

All my friends are saying
Girl, what are you thinking?
You’re better off, you’re better off without him
Find yourself another
Girl, that boy is trouble
You’re better off, you’re better off
They can talk forever, they just don’t know better

We drive around town in a rusty old truck
Somehow it feels like we’re flying
Don’t wanna come down
But they make it so tough
Just everyone we know is trying
To push us apart hide it down in our hearts
And they get what they want cause you’re gone

All my friends are saying
Girl, why are you crying?
You’re better off, you’re better off without him
Find yourself another
Girl, that boy is trouble
You’re better off, you’re better off
They can talk forever, they just don’t know better

You come to my door
In the pouring rain
We know what we don’t have to say
You hand me a rose and a note that says
We don’t have to do things their way

All my friends are saying
Girl, what are you thinking?
You’re better off, you’re better off without him
Find yourself another
Girl, that boy is trouble
You’re better off, you’re better off
Well, they can talk forever, they just don’t know better

Brought Up That Way

Brought Up That Way lyrics

Emily comes home from school,
Grabs onto her daddy’s hand,
He says “baby girl what’s wrong with you?”
She says “please don’t make me go back there again”

She said “I wish there was some way
To make them stop it”
So he drives down to
That principle’s ofice and says

“I didn’t bring her up
So they could cut her down
I didn’t bring her here
So they could shut her out
I live my whole damn life
To see that little girl’s smile
So why are tears pouring down
That sweet face?
She wasn’t brought up that way”

Emily’s home late again
He sees that boy drive away
Oh, but something different this time,
She doesn’t have too much to say
She said “he tried but
There’s just some things I won’t do”
And through the tears
She said “I couldn’t do that to you”
And he said

“I didn’t bring you up so he could wear
You down
Take that innocent heart
And turn it inside out
I live my whole damn life
To see my little girl’s smile
So don’t let nobody take that away,
You weren’t brought up that way”

The phone rings on a rainy night
Says “it’s Officer Tate”
He said “sir, there’s been an accident,
You better come down here right away,
A drunken driver missed an overpass,

And Emily, she’s fading fast”
He says “God, I didn’t bring her up
To watch them lay her down
Nearly killed me the day
They put her
Momma in the ground
Only thing that kept me alive,
Was that little girl’s smile
So please don’t take that away,
I won’t be easy taking her today,
She wasn’t brought up that way”

He stands over the hospital bed
Emily opens her eyes

Diary of Me

Diary of Me lyrics

I’m a laid back
T-shirt, blue jean, mood ring
Kinda girl
Hey yeah what’s the word on you
Lay low I’m a mission rebel
Angel devil
little left of the middle
Sometimes I get temper mental

But here I am an open book,
Turn the page it’s all the rage
Get a look on the inside
Oh, what you get is what you see
Baby you hold the key
To the diary of me

I’m poetry, complicated
Simply stated
Hey yeah baby how about you
I was born free
I’m a cell phone hippie
Are you with me?
When I mess up I don’t get up
I just get down yeah

But here I am an open book
Turn the page it’s all the rage
Get a look on the inside
Oh what you get is what you see
Baby you hold the key
To the diary of me

It’s raining on Sunday
There’s nothing on TV
Yesterday was lonely
You’re the only one who gets me
My mind is like an island
Drifting through the ocean
I can’t stop thinking about you
I bet you’re thinking of me too

Well here I am an open book
Turn the page it’s all the rage
Get a look on the inside
Oh what you get is what you see
Baby you hold the key
To the diary of me
Yeah here I am an open book
Turn the page it’s all the rage
Get a look on the inside
Oh what you get is what you see
Baby you hold the key
To the diary of me

Dark Blue Tennessee

Dark Blue Tennessee lyrics

He said, “I got me a nice new apartment
In a city, wouldn’t you have hated that?
I’m getting by with a broken heart you left me with.”
He hangs up the phone and she whispers back,

Missing you like this is such sweet sorrow
Won’t you come back to me?
I’ll be here, today and here tomorrow
In dark blue Tennessee

He was lying when he said he moved to L.A.
He’s just hiding out on the other side of town
With his head in his hands and she’s just 7 miles away
He’s staring out the window and puts her picture down saying,

Missing you like this is such sweet sorrow
Won’t you come back to me?
I’ll be here, today and here tomorrow
In dark blue Tennessee

She almost called him on the night that he wrote
These simple words on his goodbye note

Missing you like this is such sweet sorrow
Won’t you come back to me?
I’ll be here, today and here tomorrow
In dark blue Tennessee

In dark blue Tennessee

Firefly

Firefly lyrics

Someone struck a match against the night
All I could see was you and I
I was captivated
A perfect little dream inside my head
And then reality crept in and erased it
For a while I thought that I could hold you
But you were just a temporary high

Firefly you drew me to you
Your beauty shines and
Lights up the sky
And you don’t know it
Do you
I wish I could keep you
Firefly, firefly

Something So beautiful and free
Was As never meant to be
Caged in
I thought I had you in my hand
I tried to catch you
But I can’t chase the wind
And every time I reach out to touch you
I remind myself you were meant to fly

Firefly you drew me to you
Your beauty shines and
Lights up the sky
And you don’t know it
Do you
I wish I could keep you
Firefly, firefly

I’d like to think
I’d be all that you wanted
But not even that is enough

Firefly you drew me to you
Your beauty shines and
Lights up the sky
And you don’t know it
Do you
I wish I could keep you
I wish I could keep you
Firefly

Angelina

Angelina lyrics

Angelina’s got a pretty face
And really long brown hair
Lives somewhere in some wide open space
I’ve never been there
I guess some people come and purpose she
But I don’t cause

I have always been a bit reckless
And I am not your typical princess
I’m fine just a bit of a mess
And I’m not perfect you could say
I wasn’t brought up that way

Just watched Stephen run across the field
Watched him catch the ball
He’s got everything you’d wanna be
He’s funny, dark and tall
Watch him run across to Angelina
But I won’t cause

I have always been a bit reckless
And I am not your typical princess
I’m fine just a bit of a mess
And I’m not perfect you could say
I wasn’t brought up that way

Stardom pushed across the line
Tripped over my two feet hey oh yeah
But ain’t it funny how
It all comes out
Isn’t life sweet?

I have always been a bit reckless
And I am not your typical princess
I’m fine just a bit of a mess
And I’m not perfect you could say
Oh
I have always been a bit reckless
And I am not your typical princess
I’m fine just a bit of a mess
And I’m not, I’m not oh
And I’m not perfect you could say
I wasn’t brought up that way

Never Mind

Never Mind lyrics

Look at you
Look at me
Look at who
We could be

I wanna know
Who you are
What you want
From the start

And every time I look at you I can hardly say a thing
My head starts to spin
And it hits me then
I love you

And every time you look at me I could go crazy but I
don’t say it but I won’t
Cause I’d rather be alone
Than lose you

And all I really wanna do is be next to you
But I’m too tired to fight
And I could tell you now
But baby never mind

All the time
Everyday
There’s nothing I can do baby
To make you go away

So look at you
And look at me
And think of who
We could be

And every time I look at you I can hardly say a thing
My head starts to spin
And it hits me then
I love you

And every time you look at me I could go crazy but I
don’t say it but I won’t
Cause I’d rather be alone
Than lose you

And all I really wanna do is be next to you
But I’m too tired to fight
And I could tell you now
But baby never mind

All I really wanna say is I need you, babe
But how could you understand
What happens if you turn away
And everything turns blue and gray
And I just wish I told you never mind

And I could tell you now
But baby never mind

Yeaah
Oh yeah

I could tell you now but never mind

Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

And I could tell you now but never mind…

Being With My Baby

Being With My Baby lyrics

All is quiet in the world tonight
Counting stars and fireflies
This summer sings a lullaby
Of just me and my baby

On the hood of his daddy’s car
Pass around his old guitar
Bet mama’s wondering where we are
Just me and my baby

The world is spinning ’round
‘Cause of just what I found

Ooh life’s so sweet right here
Ooh keeping it young and crazy
Ooh just want to stay right here
‘Cause nothing’s quite like being with my baby

Driving home by the riverside
Wishing I could slow down time
Faking pictures in my mind
Of me and my baby

The car pulls up and I’m home too late
We didn’t take that interstate
The back-road was a better way
For me and my baby

The closer that we get
Ooh I can’t leave yet

Ooh life’s so sweet right here
Ooh keeping it young and crazy
Ooh just want to stay right here
‘Cause nothing’s quite like being with my baby

Both know what we found
So we turned that car around

Ooh life’s so sweet right here
Ooh keeping it young and crazy
Ooh just want to stay right here
Ooh and be with my baby
Ooh yeah
And be with my baby

Bother Me

Bother Me lyrics

Yo kids, you bother me
Calling my spot at three
When everyone else is sleeping you be watching TV
Playing games till the morning, I know you hear me snoring
Have you any shame knocking at my door yawning?
Said you met a lady at a club last night
Plus you came to bother me to make a dub of the fight
You bugging right? You alright?
Yo I’m trying to sleep creep
Then you asked for water and a bite to your kids
Kid, you bother me
This ain’t store twenty four
You dropped your keys on the floor before I shut the door
And rung the doorbell
I knew that it was you and ignored
And when I heard the window tapping my mouth hit the floor
Son was like I lost my keys to my car and my house
And can I make a long distance call to my spouse?
Man, you bother me!

You bother me

I was holding on the phone getting some credit resolved
And got a beep “operator, you have a collect call”
I clicked back over no I didn’t accept y’all
Though got disconnected but I’m still not upset
When I hit the dial tone my boy was already there
He said his car broke down on rout one in Revere
I know I owed him a favor I’ll go to give him a jump
I got there, it turns out he needed a new fuel pump
And he’s calling all his buddies if its money they owe
So he’s bugging you for money too he needed some dough
I got a bill from a long distance call he made
For $64.27 that he thought he had paid
Anyways, I dropped him off but he forgot his coat
He called my job said in the pocket was rhymes that he wrote
A bottle of Visine his employee ID
Said he’d pass by between nine and three
Son you bother me!

You bother me

I had a long day and now it’s time to relax
When my head hit the pillow I heard a noise outback
There were tenants right below me who were trying to unpack
Knocked the door and needed help because the banister cracked
Plus the dresser was stuck “do you have some rope
that you could grab while I go into the van?” I said “nope”
Because you bother me for real yes I needed some rest
See my eyes are turning red and yo I’m not even dressed
So I walked upstairs and put some earplugs on
Then closed my eyes shut but no not for long
‘Cause the bed vibrated when the furniture banged
Around the stairs right below in a curvature span
The phone rang so I let it ring then after the beep
Homeboy was like if you there pick up it’s me
So I unplugged the cord and turned on the television
Brother showed up on every channel I was switching
You bother me!

You bother me

Both of Us (featuring Taylor Swift) [Alternate Version] [Edited]
[Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr./Ammar Malik/Lukasz Gottwald/Henry Walter/Taylor Swift]

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us

[B.o.B:]
Ever thought about losing it
When your money’s all gone and you lose your whip
You might lose your grip when the landlord tell ya that you’re due for rent
And the grass so green on the other side
Make a ***** wanna run straight through the fence
Open up the fridge bout twenty times
But still can’t find no food in it
That’s foolishness
And sometimes I wonder, why we care so much about the way we look,
And the way we talk and the way we act and the clothes we bought, how much that cost?
Does it even really matter?
Cause if life is an uphill battle
We all tryna climb with the same ol’ ladder
In the same boat, with the same ol’ paddle
Why so shallow? I’m just asking
What’s the pattern for the madness
Everybody ain’t a number one draft pick
Most of us ain’t Hollywood actors
But if it’s all for one, and one for all
Then maybe one day, we all can ball
Do it one time for the underdogs
Sincerely yours, from one of y’all

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
[Taylor Swift & B.o.B]
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us

[B.o.B:]
I can feel your pain, I can feel your struggle
You just wanna live, but everything so low
That you could drown in a puddle
That’s why I gotta hold us up, yeah hold us up
For all the times no one’s ever spoke for us
To every single time that they play this song
You can say that that’s what Bobby Ray wrote for us
When the tides get too high
And the sea up underneath get so deep
And you feel like you’re just another person
Getting lost in the crowd, way up high in the nosebleeds
Uh, because we won’t be near yet, both of us
But we still stand tall with our shoulders up
And even though we always against the odds
These are the things that’ve molded us
And if life hadn’t chosen us
Sometimes I wonder where I would’ve wound up
Cause if it was up to me, I’d make a new blueprint
Than build it from the ground up, hey
But if it’s all for one, and one for all
Then maybe one day, we all can ball
Do it one time for the underdogs
From Bobby Ray, to all of y’all

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us

Shake It Off (Music Video Version)

Shake It Off (Music Video Version)
[Taylor Swift, Max Martin, Shellback]

I stay out too late, got nothing in my brain
That’s what people say, mm-mmm
That’s what people say, mm-mmm
I go on too many dates, but I can’t make them stay
At least that’s what people say, mm-mmm
That’s what people say, mm-mmm

But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music in my mind saying it’s gonna be alright

Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off

I never miss a beat, I’m lightning on my feet
And that’s what they don’t see, mm-mmm,
That’s what they don’t see, mm-mmm
I’m dancing on my own (Dancing on my own),
I’ll make the moves up as I go (Moves up as I go)
And that’s what they don’t know, mm-mmm,
That’s what they don’t know, mm-mmm

But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop grooving
It’s like I got this music in my mind saying it’s gonna be alright

Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off

Shake it off, shake it off
I-I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I-I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I-I, I shake it off, I shake it off

[Spoken:]
Hey, hey, hey, just think while you’ve been getting down
And out about the liars and the dirty, dirty cheats of the world
You could have been getting down to this sick beat

My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like “Oh my God”, but I’m just gonna shake it
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won’t you come on over, baby, we can shake, shake, shake (Yeah…oh whoa…uh…oh)

Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate (Haters gonna hate)
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off (Shake it off! Shake it off!)
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break (Mmm)
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake (They fake, they fake, they fake)
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, I shake it off (Shake it off! Shake it off!)

Shake it off, shake it off
I-I, I shake it off, I shake it off (You got you!)
I-I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I-I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Back to December/Apologize

Back to December/Apologize
(Taylor Swift) [Apologize written by: Ryan Tedder]

I’m so glad you made time to see me.
How’s life, tell me how’s your family
I haven’t seen them in a while.
You’ve been good, busier then ever.
We small talk, work and the weather
Your guard is up and I know why.

Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of your mind.
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night,
And I go back to December all the time.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
I go back to December all the time.

These days I haven’t been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leaving,
When your birthday passed and I didn’t call.
Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
And realized that I loved you in the fall.
And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind.
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye.

So this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night.
And I go back to December all the time.
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when you were mine.
I go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
I go back to December all the time

I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right,
And how you held me in your arms that September night,
The first time you ever saw me cry.
Maybe this is wishful thinking,
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again I swear I’d love you right.
I’d go back in time and change it but I can’t
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.

And then he said it’s too late to apologize
It’s too late
He said it’s too late to apologize
It’s too late

(It’s too late to apologize)
But this is me swallowing my pride,
Standing in  front (It’s too late) of you saying I’m sorry for that night,
(It’s too late to apologize)
But it’s too late
(It’s too late to apologize)
It turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you,
(It’s too late)
Wishing that I’d realized what I had when (It’s too late to apologize) you were mine
I go back to (It’s too late) December all the time
And I go back to December all the time

You Need to Calm Down (Music Video Version)

You Need to Calm Down (Music Video Version)
Written by: Joel Little & Taylor Swift

You are somebody that I don’t know
But you’re takin’ shots at me like it’s Patrón
And I’m just like, damn, it’s 7 AM
Say it in the street, that’s a knock-out
But you say it in a Tweet, that’s a cop-out
And I’m just like, “Hey, are you okay?”

And I ain’t tryna mess with your self-expression
But I’ve learned a lesson that stressin’ and obsessin’ ’bout somebody else is no fun
And snakes and stones never broke my bones

So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
You need to calm down, you’re being too loud
And I’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (Oh)
You need to just stop, like can you just not step on my gown?
You need to calm down

You are somebody that we don’t know
But you’re comin’ at my friends like a missile
Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD? (You could be GLAAD)
Sunshine on the street at the parade
But you would rather be in the dark ages
Makin’ that sign must’ve taken all night

You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate
‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay

So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
You need to calm down, you’re being too loud
And I’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (Oh)
You need to just stop, like can you just not step on his gown?
You need to calm down

And we see you over there on the internet
Comparing all the girls who are killing it
But we figured you out
We all know now we all got crowns
You need to calm down

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
You need to calm down (You need to calm down)
You’re being too loud (You’re being too loud)
And I’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (Oh)
You need to just stop (Can you stop?)
Like can you just not step on our gowns?
You need to calm down

You need to just stop
Like can you just not step on our gowns?
You need to calm down

Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats

Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats
Cast of Cats
Written by: Andrew Lloyd Webber

Are you blind when you’re born?
Can you see in the dark?
Can you look at a king?
Would you sit on his throne?
Can you say of your bite
That it’s worse than your bark?
Are you cock of the walk
When you’re walking alone?
When you fall on your head
Do you land on your feet?
Are you tense when you sense there’s a storm in the air?
Can you find your way blind when you’re lost in the street?
Do you know how to go to the Heaviside Layer?

Because Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicles do and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicles do and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do

Can you ride on a broomstick to places far distant?
Familiar with candle, with book and with bell?
Were you Whittington’s friend? The Pied Piper’s assistant?
Have you been an alumnus of Heaven or Hell?
Are you mean like a minx? Are you lean like a lynx?
Are you keen to be seen when you’re smelling a rat?
Where you there when the Pharaohs commissioned the Sphinx?
If you were and you are, you’re a Jellicle cat

Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

We can dive through the air like a flying trapeze
We can turn double somersaults, bounce on a tire
We can run up the wall, we can swing through the trees
We can balance on bars, we can walk on a wire

Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicles can and Jellicles do

Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

Can you sing at the same time in more than one key
Duets by Rossini and waltzes by Strauss?
And can you, as cats do, begin with a ‘C’ (Ahh)
That always triumphantly brings down the house?

Jellicle cats are queens of the nights
Singing at astronomical heights
Handling pieces from the Messiah
Hallelujah, angelical choir!

The mystical divinity of unashamed felinity
Round the cathedral rang “Vivat!”
Life to the everlasting cat
Feline, fearless, faithful and true
To others who do what

Jellicles do and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do
Jellicle cats sing Jellicle chants
Jellicles old and Jellicles new
Jellicle song and Jellicle dance

Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

Practical cats, dramatical cats
Pragmatical cats, fanatical cats
Oratorical cats, delphic-oracle cats
Skeptical cats, dyspeptical cats

Romantical cats, pedantical cats
Critical cats, parasitical cats
Allegorical cats, metaphorical cats
Statistical cats and mystical cats

Political cats, hypocritical cats
Clerical cats, hysterical cats
Cynical cats, habbinical cats
And magical cats

Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats
Jellicle songs for Jellicle cats

Macavity

Macavity (with Idris Elba)
From Cats
Written by: Andrew Lloyd Webber

Macavity’s a mystery cat, he’s called the Hiddenpaw
For he’s the master criminal who can defy the law
He’s the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad’s despair
For when they reach the scene of crime, Macavity’s not there

Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity
He’s broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity
His powers of levitation would make a fakir stare
But when they reach the scene of crime, Macavity’s not there

Macavity’s a ginger cat, he’s very tall and thin
You would know him if you saw him for his eyes are sunken in
His brow is deeply lined with thought, his head is highly domed
His coat is dusty from neglect, his whiskers are uncombed
He sways his head from side to side, with movements like a snake
And when you think he’s half asleep, he’s always wide awake

Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity
For he’s a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square
But when a crime’s discovered, then Macavity’s not there

He’s outwardly respectable, I know, he cheats at cards
And his footprints are not found in any files of Scotland Yard’s
And when the larder’s looted and the jewel case is rifled
Or when the milk is missing or another peke’s been stifled
Or the greenhouse glass is broken and the trellis past repair
There’s the wonder of the thing, Macavity’s not there

Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity
There never was a cat of such deceitfulness and suavity
He always has an alibi, and one or two to spare
What ever time the deed took place, Macavity wasn’t there
And they say that all the cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
I might mention Mungojerrie, Rumpleteazer, Griddlebone
Are nothing more than agents for the cat who all the time
Just controls the operations, the Napoleon of Crime
Macavity, Macavity, there’s no one like Macavity
He’s a fiend in feline shape, a monster of depravity
You may meet him in a by-street, you may see him in the square
But when a crime’s discovered, then Macavity, Macavity
Macavity, Macavity

When a crime’s discovered, then
Macavity’s not there

Tim McGraw (Rhapsody Original)

Tim McGraw (Rhapsody Original)[Written by Taylor Swift/Liz Rose]
He said the way my blue eyes shined
Put those Georgia stars to shame that night
I said, that’s a lie
Just a boy in a Chevy truck that had a tendency
Of getting stuck on backroads at night
And I was right there beside him all summer long
And then the time we woke up to find that summer gone, but

When you think, Tim McGraw, I hope you think my favorite song
The one we danced to all night long
The moon like a spotlight on the lake
When you think happiness, I hope you think that little black dress
Think of my head on your chest and my old faded blue jeans
When you think Tim McGraw… I hope you think of me

September saw a month of tears and thanking God
That you weren’t here, to see me like that
But in a box beneath my bed is a letter that you never read
From three summers back
It’s hard not to find it all a little bittersweet
And looking back on all of that
It’s nice to believe

When you think, Tim McGraw, I hope you think my favorite song
The one we danced to all night long
The moon like a spotlight on the lake
When you think happiness, I hope you think that little black dress
Think of my head on your chest and my old faded blue jeans
When you think Tim McGraw… I hope you think of me

And I’m back for the first time since then
I’m standing on your street
And there’s a letter left on your doorstep
And the first thing that you’ll read…

Is, when you think, Tim McGraw, I hope you think my favorite song
Some day you’ll turn your radio on
I hope it takes you back to that place
When you think happiness, I hope you think that little black dress
Think of my head on your chest and my old faded blue jeans
When you think Tim McGraw… I hope you think of me
Oh, think of me

Mmmm-hmmmm
He said the way my blue eyes shined
Put those Georgia stars to shame that night
I said that’s a lie

Teardrops on My Guitar (Rhapsody Original)

Teardrops on My Guitar (Rhapsody Original)
[Liz Rose/Taylor Swift]

Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won’t see
That I want and I’m needing everything that we should be
I’ll bet she’s beautiful that girl he talks about
And she’s got everything that I have to live without

Drew talks to me, I laugh ’cause its just so funny
I can’t even see anyone when he’s with me
He says he’s so in love, he’s finally got it right
I wonder if he knows he’s all I think about at night

He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a
wishing star
He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know
why I do

Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can’t breathe
And there he goes, so perfectly
The kind of flawless I wish I could be
She better hold him tight give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes and know she’s lucky cause

He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a
wishing star
He’s the song in the car I keep singing, don’t know
why I do

So I drive home alone as I turn out the light
I’ll put his picture down and maybe
get some sleep tonight

Cause he’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who’s got enough of me to break my heart
He’s the song in the car I keep singing don’t know
why I do
He’s the time taken up but there’s never enough
And he’s all that I need to fall into…

Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won’t see

Our Song (Rhapsody Original)

Our Song (Rhapsody Original)
[Taylor Swift]

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone
In the front seat of his car
He’s got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel
The other on my heart
I look around, turn the radio down
He says “Baby is something wrong?”
I say “Nothing I was just thinking how we don’t have a song”
And he says…

Our song is a slammin’ screen door
Sneakin’ out late, tapping on your window
When we’re on the phone and you talk real slow
Cause it’s late and your mamma don’t know
Our song is the way you laugh
The first date, “Man, I didn’t kiss her, and I should have”
And when I got home …before I said amen
Asking God if He could play it again

I was walking up my front porch steps after
everything that day
Had gone all wrong and been trampled on
And lost and thrown away
Got to the hallway, well on my way
to my lovin’ bed,
I almost didn’t notice all the roses,
And the note that said…

Our song is a slammin’ screen door
Sneakin’ out late, tapping on your window
When we’re on the phone and you talk real slow
Cause it’s late and your mamma don’t know
Our song is the way you laugh
The first date, “Man, I didn’t kiss her, and I should have”
And when I got home …before I said amen
Asking God if He could play it again

I’ve heard every album, listened to the radio
Waitin’ for something to come along
That was as good as our song…

Cause our song is a slammin’ screen door
Sneaking out late, tappin’ on his window
When we’re on the phone and he talks real slow
Cause it’s late and his mama don’t know
Our song is the way he laughs
The first date “Man, I didn’t kiss him, and I should have”
And when I got home, before I said amen
Asking God if He could play it again…
Play it again… oh, yeah…
Uh, oh yeah

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone
In the front seat of his car
I grabbed a pen and an old napkin
And I wrote down our song

Should’ve Said No (Rhapsody Original)

Should’ve Said No (Rhapsody Original)
[Taylor Swift]

You should’ve said no, should’ve gone home
Should’ve thought twice before you let it all go
You should’ve known that word about what you did with her
Get back to me

It’s strange to think the songs we used to sing
The smiles, the flowers, everything… is gone
Yesterday I found out about you
Even now just looking at you… feels wrong
You say, that you’d take it all back, given one chance
It was a moment of weakness and you said yes…

You should’ve said no, you should’ve gone home
You should have thought twice before you let it all go
You should’ve known that word about what you did with her
Get back to me… (Get back to me)
And I should’ve been there, in the back of your mind
Shouldn’t be asking myself why
You shouldn’t be begging for forgiveness at my feet
You should’ve said no, baby and you might still have me

You can see that I’ve been crying
Baby you know all the right things… to say
But do you, honestly expect me to believe
We could ever be the same…
You say, that the past is the past, you need one chance
It was a moment of weakness and you said yes…

You should’ve said no, you should’ve gone home
You should have thought twice before you let it all go
You should’ve known that word about what you did with her
Get back to me… (Get back to me)
And I should’ve been there, in the back of your mind
Shouldn’t be asking myself why
You shouldn’t be begging for forgiveness at my feet
You should’ve said no, baby and you might still have me

Oh whoa oh

I can’t resist… before you go tell me this
Was it worth it…
Was she worth this…
Nooo, no-no, no, no, no, noooo, no

You should’ve said no, you should’ve gone home
You should have thought twice before you let it all go
You should’ve known that word about what you did with her
Get back to me… (Get back to me)
And I should’ve been there, in the back of your mind
Shouldn’t be asking myself why
You shouldn’t be begging for forgiveness at my feet
You should’ve said no, baby and you might still have me…

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Country Mix)

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (Country Mix)
[Taylor Swift, Max Martin, Shellback]

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 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 (Talk to me)
But we are never ever, ever, ever getting back together
Ooh oh oh oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh oh
Ooh oh oh oh oh

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, ever getting back (Ooh…) 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)
(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

I Know You Were Trouble. (Remix) [feat. Sammy Adams]

I Know You Were Trouble. (Remix) [feat. Sammy Adams]
(Max Martin, Sammy Adams, 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 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
‘Til 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, (you know I’m) trouble, trouble, trouble (you know I’m)
Oh, oh, (you know I’m) trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, (I told you I was, I was) trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

Double platinum wherever she go
South of France to Reno
Met her out in Vegas
Went in on casino
Red lips so hard to miss
What’s wrong with being promiscuous
And I can teach you bad, bad things
If you into it
Don’t need to get intimate…just yet
Slow down, I know that
You thinking you and me…just met
But girl, I got the remedy most important in chemistry
Good girl gone bad too much for a Kennedy

Some say, some say, they sell they souls for a couple hits
I’d rather live a life of gold with a perfect chick
Cause that one moment when your breathless and your hoping
And ya feel the same way, same way
Sparks blowing off that cute face and that shy smile…oh man
I haven’t crushed this hard in quite a while…oh damn
And I can care less that your famous
We can make the perfect couple
Cause my first name big, last name trouble
Yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til 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, (you know I’m) trouble, trouble, trouble (you know I’m)
Oh, oh, (you know I’m) 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
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in (you were right there, you were right there)
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

The Man (Clean)

The Man (Clean)
Written by: Joel Little & Taylor Swift

I would be complex, I would be cool
They’d say I played the field before I found someone to commit to
And that would be okay for me to do
Every conquest I had made would make me more of a boss to you

I’d be a fearless leader
I’d be an alpha type
When everyone believes ya
What’s that like?

I’m so sick of running as fast as I can
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again
‘Cause if I was a man, then I’d be the man
I’d be the man
I’d be the man

They’d say I hustled, put in the work
They wouldn’t shake their heads and question how much of this I deserve
What I was wearing, if I was rude
Could all be separated from my good ideas and power moves

And they would toast to me, oh, let the players play
I’d be just like Leo in Saint-Tropez

I’m so sick of running as fast as I can
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again
‘Cause if I was a man, then I’d be the man
I’d be the man
I’d be the man

What’s it like to brag about raking in dollars
And getting and models?
And it’s all good if you’re bad
And it’s okay if you’re mad
If I was out flashing my dollars
I’d be a, not a baller
They’d paint me out to be bad
So, it’s okay that I’m mad

I’m so sick of running as fast as I can
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man (You know that)
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again (Coming at me again)
‘Cause if I was a man (If I was a man)
Then I’d be the man (Then I’d be the man)
I’m so sick of running as fast as I can (As fast as I can)
Wondering if I’d get there quicker if I was a man (Hey)
And I’m so sick of them coming at me again (Coming at me again)
‘Cause if I was a man (If I was a man), then I’d be the man
I’d be the man
I’d be the man (Oh)
I’d be the man (Yeah)
I’d be the man (I’d be the man)

If I was a man, then I’d be the man

cardigan / august / willow (Live From The 63rd GRAMMYs ® / 2021)

cardigan / august / willow (Live From The 63rd GRAMMYs ® / 2021)
Written by: Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff & Taylor Swift

Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
Sequin smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young, they assume you know nothing

‘Cause I knew you
Steppin’ on the last train
Marked me like a bloodstain, I
I knew you
Tried to change the ending
Peter losing Wendy, I
I knew you
Leavin’ like a father
Running like water, I
Cause when you are young, they assume you know nothing

But I knew you’d linger like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt all of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke would hang around this long
‘Cause I knew everything when I was young
I knew I’d curse you for the longest time
Chasin’ shadows in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss me once the thrill expired
And you’d be standin’ in my front porch light
And I knew you’d come back to me
You’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back

And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

And you’d come back to me

Salt air, and the rust on your door
I never needed anything more
Whispers of “Are you sure?”
“Never have I ever before”

But I can see us lost in the memory
August slipped away into a moment in time
‘Cause it was never mine
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
‘Cause you were never mine

Back when we were still changin’ for the better
Wanting was enough
For me, it was enough
To live for the hope of it all
Canceled plans just in case you’d call
And say, “Meet me behind the mall”
So much for summer love and saying “us”
‘Cause you weren’t mine to lose
You weren’t mine to lose

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

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

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

You All Over Me

You All Over Me
(Taylor Swift & Scooter Carusoe)

Once the last drop of rain has dried off the pavement
Shouldn’t I find a stain, but I never do
The way the tires turn stones on old county roads
They leave it muddy underneath, reminds me of you
You find graffiti on the walls of old bathroom stalls
You know, you can scratch it right off, it’s how we used to be
Like the dollar in your pocket, that’s been spent and traded in
You can’t change where it’s been, reminds me of me

I lived, and I learned, had you, got burned
Held out, held on
God knows, too long, you wasted time
Lost tears, swore that I’d get out of here
But no amount of freedom gets you clean
I still got you all over me

Guess the worst day of June
Was the one that I met you
With your hands in your pockets
And your “don’t you wish you had me” grin
I did, so I smile, and I melted like a child
Now every breath of air I breathe reminds me of back then

Well, I lived, and I learned, had you, got burned
Held out, held on
God knows, too long, you wasted my time
Lost tears, swore that I’d get out of here
No amount of freedom gets you clean
I still got you all over me

I lived, and I learned, and found out what it was to turn around
And see that we were never really meant to be
So I lied, and I tried, and I watched a part of myself die
‘Cause no amount of freedom gets you clean
I still got you all over me
I still got you all, oh, over me

Na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na na na
Na na na, na na na, na na na, na na, all over me
Na na na, na na na, na na na, na na na
Na na na, all over you, all over me
Oh oh oh oh oh yeah, oh oh oh yeah, yeah
Oh oh oh all over me
