Tim Mcgraw

[Verse 1]

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 gettin' stuck

On back roads at night

And I was right there beside him all summer long

And then the time we woke up to find that summer gone

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

September saw a month of tears

And thankin' 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 lookin' back on all of that, it's nice to believe

[Chorus]

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

[Bridge]

And I'm back for the first time since then

I'm standin' 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

Someday you'll turn your radio on

I hope it takes you back to that place"

[Chorus]

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

[Outro]

He said the way my blue eyes shine

Put those Georgia stars to shame that night

I said, "That's a lie"


Picture to Burn

[Verse 1]

State the obvious, I didn't get my perfect fantasy

I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me

So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive and crazy

That's fine, I'll tell mine that you're gay

By the way

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

There's no time for tears

I'm just sitting here planning my revenge

There's nothing stopping me

From going out with all of your best friends

And if you come around saying sorry to me

My daddy's gonna show you how sorry you'll be

[Chorus]

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

[Bridge]

And if you're missing me

You'd better keep it to yourself

'Cause coming back around here

Would be bad for your health

[Chorus]

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

I really really hate that

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

[Outro]

Burn, burn, burn, baby, burn

You're just another picture to burn

Baby, burn


Teardrops on My Guitar

[Verse 1]

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

[Pre-Chorus 1]

I'll bet she's beautiful, that girl he talks about

And she's got everything that I have to live without

[Verse 2]

Drew talks to me

I laugh 'cause it's so damn funny

That I can't even see

Anyone when he's with me

[Pre-Chorus 2]

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

[Chorus]

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...

[Verse 3]

Drew walks by me

Can't he tell that I can't breathe?

And there he goes, so perfectly

The kind of flawless I wish I could be

[Pre-Chorus 3]

She'd better hold him tight, give him all her love

Look in those beautiful eyes and know she's lucky cause

[Chorus]

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...

[Bridge]

So I drive home alone, as I turn off the light

I'll put his picture down and maybe get some sleep tonight

[Chorus]

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...

[Outro]

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


A Place in This World

[Verse 1]

I don't know what I want, so don't ask me

Cause I'm still trying to figure it out

Don't know what's down this road, I'm just walking

Trying to see through the rain coming down

Even though I'm not the only one

Who feels the way I do

[Chorus]

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know

I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on

Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in this world

[Verse 2]

Got the radio on, my old blue jeans

And I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve

Feeling lucky today, got the sunshine

Could you tell me what more do I need

And tomorrow's just a mystery, oh yeah

But that's OK

[Chorus]

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know

I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on

Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in this world

[Bridge]

Maybe I'm just a girl on a mission

But I'm ready to fly

[Chorus]

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know

I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on

Oh I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know

Oh I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in this world

[Outro]

Oh I'm just a girl

Oh I'm just a girl, oh, oh

Oh I'm just a girl


Cold as You

[Verse 1]

You have a way of coming easily to me

And when you take, you take the very best of me

So I start a fight cause I need to feel something

And you do what you want cause I'm not what you wanted

[Chorus]

Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day

Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say

And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through

I've never been anywhere cold as you

[Verse 2]

You put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray

And I stood there loving you and wished them all away

And you come away with a great little story

Of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you

[Chorus]

Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day

Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say

And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through

I've never been anywhere cold as you

[Bridge]

You never did give a damn thing honey but I cried, cried for you

And I know you wouldn't have told nobody if I died, died for you

(Died for you)

[Chorus]

Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day

Every smile you fake is so condescending

Counting all the scars you made

And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through

I've never been anywhere cold as you


The Outside

[Verse 1]

I didn't know what I would find

When I went looking for a reason, I know

I didn't read between the lines

And, baby, I've got nowhere to go

I tried to take the road less traveled by

But nothing seems to work the first few times

Am I right?

[Chorus]

So how can I ever try to be better?

Nobody ever lets me in

I can still see you, this ain't the best view

On the outside looking in

I've been a lot of lonely places

I've never been on the outside

[Verse 2]

You saw me there, but never knew

I would give it all up to be

A part of this, a part of you

And now it's all too late so you see

You could've helped if you had wanted to

But no one notices until it's too

Late to do anything

[Chorus]

So how can I ever try to be better?

Nobody ever lets me in

I can still see you, this ain't the best view

On the outside looking in

I've been a lot of lonely places

I've never been on the outside

So how can I ever try to be better?

Nobody ever lets me in

I can still see you, this ain't the best view

On the outside looking in

I've been a lot of lonely places

I've never been on the outside


Tied Together With a Smile

[Verse 1]

Seems the only one who doesn't see your beauty

Is the face in the mirror looking back at you

You walk around here thinking you're not pretty

But that's not true, 'cause I know you

[Chorus]

Hold on

Baby you're losing it

The water's high

You're jumping into it

And letting go

And no one knows

That you cry

But you don't tell anyone

That you might

Not be the golden one

And you're tied together with a smile

But you're coming undone

[Verse 2]

I guess it's true that love was all you wanted

'Cause you're giving it away like it's extra change

Hoping it will end up in his pocket

But he leaves you out like a penny in the rain

Oh, 'cause it's not his price to pay

Not his price to pay

[Chorus]

Hold on

Baby you're losing it

The water's high

You're jumping into it

And letting go

And no one knows

That you cry

But you don't tell anyone

That you might

Not be the golden one

And you're tied together with a smile

But you're coming undone

Hold on

Baby you're losing it

The water's high

You're jumping into it

And letting go

And no one knows

That you cry

But you don't tell anyone

That you might

Not be the golden one

And you're tied together with a smile

But you're coming undone

[Outro]

You're tied together with a smile

But you're coming undone oh

Goodbye, baby

With a smile, baby, baby


Stay Beautiful

[Verse 1]

Cory's eyes are like a jungle

He smiles, it's like the radio

He whispers songs into my window

In words that nobody knows

These pretty girls on every corner

They watch him as he's walking home

Saying, "Does he know?"

Will you ever know?

[Chorus]

You're beautiful

Every little piece love

And don't you know

You're really gonna be someone

Ask anyone

And when you find everything you looked for

I hope your life will lead you back to my door

Oh, but if it don't

Stay beautiful

[Verse 2]

Cory finds another way to be

The highlight of my day

I'm taking pictures in my mind

So I can save them for a rainy day

It's hard to make a conversation

When he's taking my breath away

I should say, hey, by the way

[Chorus]

You're beautiful

Every little piece love

And don't you know

You're really gonna be someone

Ask anyone

And when you find everything you looked for

I hope your life will lead you back to my door

Oh, but if it don't

Stay beautiful

[Bridge]

If you and I are a story

That never gets told

If what you are is a daydream

I'll never get to hold

At least you'll know

[Chorus]

You're beautiful

Every little piece love

And don't you know

You're really gonna be someone

Ask anyone

And when you find everything you looked for

I hope your life will lead you back to my front door

Oh, but if it don't

Will you stay

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful?

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful?

[Outro]

La la la

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, but if it don't

Stay beautiful

Stay beautiful

Na, na, na, na, na


Should’ve Said No

[Verse 1]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

You say that you'd take it all back, given one chance

It was a moment of weakness and you said, "Yes"

[Chorus]

You should've said, "No", you should've gone home

You should've thought twice 'fore you let it all go

You should've know that word, 'bout 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

I 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

[Verse 2]

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?

[Pre-Chorus]

You say that the past is the past, you need one chance

It was a moment of weakness and you said, "Yes"

[Chorus]

You should've said, "No", you should've gone home

You should've thought twice 'fore you let it all go

You should've know that word, 'bout 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

I 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

[Bridge]

I can't resist

Before you go tell me this

Was it worth it?

Was she worth this?

No no, no, no

[Chorus]

You should've said, "No", you should've gone home

You should've thought twice 'fore you let it all go

You should've know that word, 'bout 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

I 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


Mary’s Song (Oh My My My)

[Verse 1]

She said, I was seven and you were nine

I looked at you like the stars that shined

In the sky, the pretty lights

And our daddies used to joke about the two of us

Growing up and falling in love and our mamas smiled

And rolled their eyes and said oh my my my

[Chorus]

Take me back to the house in the backyard tree

Said you'd beat me up, you were bigger than me

You never did, you never did

Take me back when our world was one block wide

I dared you to kiss me and ran when you tried

Just two kids, you and I

Oh my my my my

[Verse 2]

Well, I was sixteen when suddenly

I wasn't that little girl you used to see

But your eyes still shined like pretty lights

And our daddies used to joke about the two of us

They never believed we'd really fall in love

And our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes

And said oh my my my

[Chorus]

Take me back to the creek beds we turned up

2 A.M. riding in your truck and all I need is you next to me

Take me back to the time we had our very first fight

The slamming of doors instead of kissing goodnight

You stayed outside till the morning light

Oh my my my my

[Verse 3]

A few years had gone and come around

We were sitting at our favorite spot in town

And you looked at me, got down on one knee

[Chorus]

Take me back to the time when we walked down the aisle

Our whole town came and our mamas cried

You said I do and I did too

Take me home where we met so many years before

We'll rock our babies on that very front porch

After all this time, you and I

[Outro]

I'll be eighty-seven; you'll be eighty-nine

I'll still look at you like the stars that shine

In the sky, oh my my my


Our Song

[Verse 1]

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

[Chorus]

Our song is the slamming 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 mama 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 'fore I said amen

Asking God if he could play it again

[Verse 2]

I was walking up the 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

[Chorus]

Our song is the slamming 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 mama 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 'fore I said amen

Asking God if he could play it again

[Bridge]

I've heard every album, listened to the radio

Waited for something to come along

That was as good as our song

[Chorus]

'Cause our song is the slamming screen door

Sneakin' out late, tapping 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 'fore I said amen

Asking God if he could play it again

Play it again

[Outro]

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


I’d Lie

[Verse 1]

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

And I don't think it ever crossed his mind

He tells a joke I fake a smile

But I know all his favorite songs

[Chorus]

And I could tell you his favorite color's green

He loves to argue, born on the seventeenth

His sister's beautiful, he has his father’s eyes

And if you asked me if I love him

I’d lie

[Verse 2]

He looks around the room

Innocently overlooks the truth

Shouldn’t a light go on?

Doesn’t he know that 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

[Chorus]

I could tell you his favorite color's green

He loves to argue, born on the seventeenth

His sister's beautiful, he has his father’s eyes

And if you asked me if I love him

I’d lie

[Verse 3]

He stands there then walks away

My god if I could only say

I’m holding every breath 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

[Chorus]

Yes I could tell you his favorite color's 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 asked me if I love him

I’d lie


I’m Only Me When I’m With You

[Verse 1]

Friday night beneath the stars

In a field behind your yard

You and I are painting pictures in the sky

And sometimes we don't say a thing

Just listen to the crickets sing

Everything I need is right here by my side

And I know everything about you

I don't wanna live without you

[Chorus]

I'm only up when you're not down

Don't wanna fly if you're still on the ground

It's like no matter what I do

Well you drive me crazy half the time

The other half I'm only trying to let you know that what I feel is true

And I'm only me when I'm with you

[Verse 2]

Just a small town boy and girl

Living in a crazy world

Trying to figure out what is and isn't true

And I don't try to hide my tears

The secrets or my deepest fears

Through it all nobody gets me like you do

And you know everything about me

You say that you can't live without me

[Chorus]

I'm only up when you're not down

Don't wanna fly if you're still on the ground

It's like no matter what I do

Well you drive me crazy half the time

The other half I'm only trying to let you know that what I feel is true

And I'm only me when I'm with you

[Bridge]

When I'm with anybody else it's so hard to be myself

Only you can tell

[Chorus]

That I'm only up when you're not down

Don't wanna fly if you're still on the ground

It's like no matter what I do

Well you drive me crazy half the time

The other half I'm only trying to let you know that what I feel is true

And I'm only me

Who I wanna be

Well, I'm only me when I'm with you

With you

Uh huh

Yeah


Invisible

[Verse 1]

She can't see the way your eyes

Light up when you smile

She'll never notice how you stop and stare

Whenever she walks by

[Pre-Chorus]

And you can't see me wanting you the way you want her

But you are everything to me

[Chorus]

I just want to show you

She don't even know you

She's never going to love you like I want to

And you just see right through me

If you only knew me

We could be a beautiful

Miracle

Unbelievable

Instead of just invisible

[Verse 2]

There's a fire inside of you

That can't help but shine through

She's never going to see the light

No matter what you do

[Pre-Chorus]

And all I think about is how to make you think of me

And everything that we could be

[Chorus]

I just want to show you

She don't even know you

She's never going to love you like I want to

And you just see right through me

If you only knew me

We could be a beautiful

Miracle

Unbelievable

Instead of just invisible

[Bridge]

Like shadows in a faded light

Oh, we're invisible

I just want to open your eyes

And make you realize

[Chorus - Variation]

I just want to show you

She don't even know you

Baby, let me love you

Let me want you

You just see right through me

But if you only knew me

We could be a beautiful

Miracle

Unbelievable

Instead of just invisible

[Outro]

She can't see the way your eyes

Light up when you smile


A Perfectly Good Heart

[Chorus]

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart, now?

Why would you wanna make the very first scar?

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

[Verse]

Maybe I should've seen the signs, should've read the writing on the wall

And realized by the distance in your eyes that I would be the one to fall

No matter what you say, I still can't believe

That you would walk away

It don't make sense to me, but

[Chorus]

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart,now?

Why would you wanna make the very first scar?

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

[Bridge]

It's not unbroken anymore

How do I get it back the way it was before?

[Chorus]

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart, now?

Why would you wanna make the very first scar?

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?

Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart, now?

Why would you wanna make the very first scar?

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?


Christmases When You Were Mine

[Verse 1]

Please take down the mistletoe

Because I don't want to think about that right now

Because everything I want is miles away

In a snow covered little town

My momma's in the kitchen, worrying about me

Season's greetings, hope you are well

Well I am doing alright

If you were wondering

Lately I can never tell

[Chorus]

I know this should not be a lonely time

But there were Christmases when you were mine

[Verse 2]

I have been doing fine without you, really

Up until the nights got cold

And everybody's here, except you, baby

Seems like everyone's got someone to hold

[Chorus]

But for me it is just a lonely time

Because there were Christmases when you were mine

[Verse 3]

Merry Christmas everybody

That will have to be something I just say this year

I will bet you got your mom another sweater

And were your cousins late again

When you were putting up the lights this year

Did you notice one less pair of hands

[Chorus]

I know this should not be a lonely time

But there were Christmases when I did not wonder how you are tonight

Because there were Christmases when you were mine

[Outro]

You were mine


Christmases Must Be Something More

[Verse 1]

What if ribbons and bows didn't mean a thing?

Would the song still survive without five golden rings?

Would you still wanna kiss without mistletoe?

What would happen if God never let it snow?

What would happen if Christmas carols told a lie?

Tell me what would you find

[Chorus]

You'd see that today holds something special

Something holy, not superficial

So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives

It's something we all try to ignore

And put a wreath up on your door

So here's something you should know that is for sure

Christmas must be something more

[Verse 2]

What if angels did not pay attention to

All the things that we wished they would always do?

What if happiness came in a cardboard box?

Then I think there is something we all forgot

What would happen if presents all went away?

Tell me what would you find

[Chorus]

You'd see that today holds something special

Something holy, not superficial

So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives

It's something we all try to ignore

And put a wreath up on your door

So here's something you should know that is for sure

Christmas must be something more

[Bridge]

We get so caught up in all of it

Business and relationships

Hundred mile an hour lives

And it's this time of year

And everybody's here

It seems the last thing on your mind

[Chorus]

Is that the day holds something special

Something holy, not superficial?

So here's to Jesus Christ who saved our lives

It's something we all try to ignore

And put a wreath up on your door

But here's something you should know that is for sure

Christmas must be something

Christmas must be something

Christmas must be something more

[Outro]

There's gotta be more

There's gotta be more


Jump Then Fall

[Verse 1]

I like the way you sound in the morning

We're on the phone and without a warning

I realize your laugh is the best sound

I have ever heard

I like the way I can't keep my focus

I watch you talk, you didn't notice

I hear the words but all I can think is

We should be together

Every time you smile, I smile

And every time you shine, I'll shine for you

[Chorus]

Whoa oh, I'm feeling you baby

Don't be afraid to

Jump then fall

Jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never going to leave you

Say that you want to be with me too

So I'm a stay through it all

So jump then fall

[Verse 2]

I like the way your hair falls in your face

You got the keys to me

I love each freckle on your face, oh

I've never been so wrapped up, honey

I like the way you're everything I ever wanted

I had time to think it oh, over

And all I can say is come closer

Take a deep breath then jump then fall into me

Cause every time you smile, I smile

And every time you shine, I'll shine for you

[Chorus]

Whoa oh, I'm feeling you baby

Don't be afraid to

Jump then fall

Jump then fall into me

Baby, I'm never going to leave you

Say that you want to be with me too

So I'm a stay through it all

So jump then fall

[Bridge]

The bottom's going to drop out from under our feet

I'll catch you, I'll catch you

And people say things that bring you to your knees

I'll catch you

The time is going to come when you're so mad you could cry

But I'll hold you through the night until you smile

Whoa oh, I need you baby

Don't be afraid, please

Jump then fall

Jump then fall into me

[Chorus]

Be there, never going to leave you

Say that you want to be with me too

So I'm a stay through it all

So jump then fall

Jump then fall baby

Jump then fall into me, into me

[Outro]

Every time you smile, I smile

And every time you shine, I shine

And every time you're here

Baby I'll show you, I'll show you

You can jump then fall, jump then fall

Jump then fall into me, into me, yeah


Untouchable

[Verse 1]

Untouchable like a distant diamond sky

I'm reaching out and I just can't tell you why

I'm caught up in you, I'm caught up in you

[Pre-Chorus]

Untouchable, burning brighter than the sun

And when you're close, I feel like coming undone

[Chorus]

In the middle of the night when I'm in this dream

It's like a million little stars spelling out your name

You got to come on, come on, say that we'll be together

Come on, come on, little taste of heaven

It's half full and I won't wait here all day

I know you're saying that you'd be here anyway

[Pre-Chorus]

But you're untouchable, burning brighter than the sun

Now that you're close, I feel like coming undone

[Chorus]

In the middle of the night when I'm in this dream

It's like a million little stars spelling out your name

You got to come on, come on, say that we'll be together

Come on, come on, oh

In the middle of the night waking from this dream

I want to feel you by my side, standing next to me

You got to come on, come on, say that we'll be together

Come on, come on, little taste of heaven

[Bridge]

I'm caught up in you

Oh, oh, oh

[Pre-Chorus]

But you're untouchable, burning brighter than the sun

Now that you're close, I feel like coming undone

[Chorus]

In the middle of the night when I'm in this dream

It's like a million little stars spelling out your name

You got to come on, come on, say that we'll be together

Come on, come on, oh

In the middle of the night waking from this dream

I want to feel you by my side, standing next to me

You got to come on, come on, say that we'll be together

Come on, come on, little taste of heaven

In the middle of the night, we can form this dream

I want to feel you by my side, standing next to me

You got to come on, come on, say that we'll be together

Come on, come on, little taste of heaven

And in the middle of the night when I'm in this dream

It's like a million little stars spelling out your name

You got to come on, come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, oh, oh, oh

[Outro]

Like a million little stars spelling out your name

They're spelling out your name, oh


Come In With The Rain

[Verse 1]

I could go back to every laugh

But I don't wanna go there anymore

And I know all the steps up to your door

But I don't wanna go there anymore

[Pre-Chorus]

Talk to the wind, talk to the sky

Talk to the man with the reasons why

And let me know what you find

[Chorus]

I’ll leave my window open

‘Cause I’m too tired at night to call your name

Just know I’m right here hoping

That you’ll come in with the rain

[Verse 2]

I could stand up and sing you a song

But I don't wanna have to go that far

And I, I’ve got you down, I know you by heart

And you don’t even know where I start

[Pre-Chorus]

Talk to yourself, talk to the tears

Talk to the man who put you here

And don’t wait for the sky to clear

[Chorus]

I’ll leave my window open

‘Cause I’m too tired at night to call your name

Just know I’m right here hoping

That you’ll come in with the rain

[Verse 3]

I’ve watched you so long, screamed your name

I don’t know what else I can say...

[Chorus]

But I’ll leave my window open

Cause I’m too tired at night for all these games

Just know I’m right here hoping that you’ll come in with the rain

[Outro]

I could go back to every laugh

But I don’t want to go there anymore


Superstar

[Verse 1]

This is wrong but I can't help but feel like there ain’t nothing more right babe

Misty morning comes again and I can't help but wish I could see your face

And I knew from the first note played, I'd be breaking all my rules to see you

You smile that beautiful smile and all the girls in the front row scream your name

[Chorus]

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like

I can't take my eyes off of you

I'm no one special, just another wide-eyed girl

Who's desperately in love with you

Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, superstar

[Verse 2]

Good morning loneliness comes around when I'm not dreaming about you

When my world wakes up today, you'll be in another town

And I knew when I saw your face, I'd be counting down the ways to see you

You smile that beautiful smile and all the girls in the front row scream your name

[Bridge]

You played in bars, you play guitar

And I'm invisible and everyone knows who you are

And you'll never see, you sing me to sleep

Every night from the radio

[Chorus]

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like

I can't take my eyes off of you

I'm no one special, just another wide-eyed girl

Who's desperately in love with you

Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, superstar

Sweet, sweet superstar, superstar...

Superstar


The Other Side of The Door

[Verse 1]

In the heat of the fight I walked away

Ignoring words that you were saying

Trying to make me stay

I said, 'This time I've had enough'

And you've called a hundred times

But I'm not picking up

Cause I'm so mad I might tell you that it's over

But if you look a little closer

[Chorus]

I said, "Leave," but all I really want is you

To stand outside my window throwing pebbles

Screaming, 'I'm in love with you'

Wait there in the pouring rain, come back for more

And don't you leave cause I know

All I need is on the other side of the door

[Verse 2]

Me and my stupid pride are sitting here alone

Going through the photographs, staring at the phone

I keep going back over things we both said

And I remember the slamming door and all the things that I misread

So babe if you know everything, tell me why you couldn't see

When I left I wanted you to chase after me

[Chorus]

Yeah, I said, "Leave," but all I really want is you

To stand outside my window throwing pebbles

Screaming, 'I'm in love with you'

Wait there in the pouring rain, come back for more

And don't you leave cause I know

All I need is on the other side of the door

[Verse 3]

And I'll scream out the window

I can't even look at you

I don't need you but I do, I do, I do

I say, "There's nothing you can say to make this right

I mean it, I mean it"

What I mean is

[Chorus]

I said, "Leave," but baby all I want is you

To stand outside my window throwing pebbles

Screaming, 'I'm in love with you'

Wait there in the pouring rain, come back for more

And don't you leave cause I know

All I need is on the other side of the door

[Verse 4]

With your face and the beautiful eyes

And the conversation with the little white lies

And the faded picture of a beautiful night

You carry me from your car to the stairs

And I broke down crying, was she worth this mess?

After everything and that little black dress

After everything I must confess, I need you


Fearless

[Verse 1]

There's something 'bout the way

The street looks when it's just rained

There's a glow off the pavement

You walk me to the car

And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there

In the middle of the parking lot, yeah

Oh, yeah

We're driving down the road

I wonder if you know

I'm trying so hard not to get caught up now

But you're just so cool

Run your hands through your hair

Absent mindedly making me want you

[Chorus]

And I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

[Verse 2]

So baby drive slow

'til we run out of road in this one horse town

I wanna stay right here in this passenger's seat

You put your eyes on me

In this moment now capture it, remember it

[Chorus]

And I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

[Bridge]

Well you stood there with me in the doorway

My hands shake, I'm not usually this way but

You pull me in and I'm a little more brave

It's the first kiss, it's flawless, really something

It's fearless

Oh, yeah

[Chorus]

And I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

[Chorus]

And I don't know how it gets better than this

You take my hand and drag me head first

Fearless

And I don't know why but with you I'd dance in a storm in my best dress

Fearless

[Outro]

Oh oh

Oh yeah


Fifteen

[Verse 1]

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 going to 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"

[Chorus]

Because when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you

You're going to believe them

And when you're fifteen feeling like there's nothing to figure out

Well, count to ten, take it in

This is life before you know who you're going to be

Fifteen

[Verse 2]

You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail

And soon enough you're best friends

Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool

We'll be outta here as soon as we can

And then you're on your very first date and he's got a car

And you're feeling like flying

And your momma'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

[Chorus]

Because when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you

You're going to believe them

When you're fifteen and your first kiss

Makes your 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

[Bridge]

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 going to 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

[Chorus]

Because when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you

You're going to believe them

And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall

I've found time can heal most anything

And you just might find who you're supposed to be

I didn't know who I was supposed to be at fifteen

La la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la la

[Outro]

Your very first day

Take a deep breath girl

Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors


Love Story

[Verse 1]

We were both young when I first saw you

I close my eyes, and the flashback starts

I'm standing there

On a balcony in summer air

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns

See you make your way through the crowd

And say hello

Little did I know

[Pre-Chorus 1]

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles

And my daddy said, "stay away from Juliet"

And I was crying on the staircase

Begging you, "please don't go," and I said

[Chorus 1]

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone

I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run

You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess

It's a love story baby just say "yes"

[Verse 2]

So I sneak out to the garden to see you

We keep quiet, 'cause we're dead if they knew

So close your eyes

Escape this town for a little while

[Pre-Chorus 2]

'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter

And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"

But you were everything to me

I was begging you please don't go and I said

[Chorus 2]

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone

I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run

You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess

It's a love story baby just say "yes"

Romeo, save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel

This love is difficult, but it's real

Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess

It's a love story baby just say "yes"

Oh, oh

[Bridge]

I got tired of waiting

Wondering if you were ever coming around

My faith in you was fading

When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

Romeo save me I've been feeling so alone

I keep waiting for you but you never come

Is this in my head? I don't know what to think

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

[Chorus 3]

And said: "Marry me Juliet

You'll never have to be alone

I love you and that's all I really know

I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress

It's a love story baby just say 'yes'"

[Outro]

Oh, oh

Oh, oh

Because we were both young when I first saw you


Hey Stephen

[Verse 1]

Hey Stephen, I know looks can be deceiving

But I know I saw a light in you

And as we walked we were talking

I didn't say half the things I wanted to

Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window

I'll be the one waiting there even when it's cold

Hey Stephen, boy, you might have me believing

I don't always have to be alone

[Chorus]

'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel

Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so

Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you

Can't help it if there's no one else

Mmm, I can't help myself

[Verse 2]

Hey Stephen, I've been holding back this feeling

So I got some things to say to you

I've seen it all, so I thought

But I never seen nobody shine the way you do

The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name

It's beautiful, wonderful, don't you ever change

Hey Stephen, why are people always leaving?

I think you and I should stay the same

[Chorus]

'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel

Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so

Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you

Can't help it if there's no one else

Mmm, I can't help myself

[Bridge]

They're dimming the street lights, you're perfect for me

Why aren't you here tonight?

I'm waiting alone now, so come on and come out

And pull me near and shine, shine, shine

Hey Stephen, I could give you fifty reasons

Why I should be the one you choose

All those other girls, well, they're beautiful

But would they write a song for you?

[Chorus]

'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel

Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so

Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you

Can't help it if there's no one else

Mmm, I can't help myself

'Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel

Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so

Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you

Can't help it if there's no one else

Mmm, I can't help myself

[Outro]

Myself

Can't help myself

I can't help myself


White Horse

[Verse 1]

Say you're sorry, that face of an angel

Comes out just when you need it to

As I paced back and forth all this time

'Cause I honestly believed in you

Holdin' on, the days drag on

Stupid girl, I shoulda known, I shoulda known

[Chorus]

That I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale

I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet, lead her up the stairwell

This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town

I was a dreamer before you went and let me down

Now it's too late for you and your white horse

To come around

[Verse 2]

Baby I was naive, got lost in your eyes

And never really had a chance

My mistake I didn't know to be in love

You had to fight to have the upper hand

I had so many dreams about you and me

Happy endings, now I know

[Chorus]

That I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale

I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet, lead her up the stairwell

This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town

I was a dreamer before you went and let me down

Now it's too late for you and your white horse

To come around

[Bridge]

And there you are on your knees

Beggin' for forgiveness, beggin' for me

Just like I always wanted

But I'm so sorry

[Chorus]

'Cause I'm not your princess, this ain't our fairytale

I'm gonna find someone someday

Who might actually treat me well

This is a big world, that was a small town

There in my rear view mirror disappearing now

And it's too late for you and your white horse

Now it's too late for you and your white horse

To catch me now

[Outro]

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa

Try and catch me now, oh

It's too late to catch me now


You Belong With Me

[Verse 1]

You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset

She's going off about something that you said

'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do

I'm in the room, it's 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

[Pre-Chorus]

But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts

She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers

Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find

That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans

I can't 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 a while since she brought you down

You say you're fine, I know you better than that

Hey, whatcha doing with a girl like that?

[Pre-Chorus]

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers

She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers

Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find

That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

[Chorus]

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 and waiting at your back door

All this time how could you not know, baby?

You belong with me, you belong with me

[Bridge]

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 'bout to cry

And I know your favorite songs

And you tell me 'bout your dreams

Think I know where you belong

Think I know it's with me

[Chorus]

Can't you 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 and waiting at your back door

All this time how could you not know, baby?

You belong with me, you belong with me

[Outro]

You belong with me

Have you ever thought just maybe

You belong with me?

You belong with me


Breathe

[Verse 1]

I see your face in my mind as I drive away

'Cause none of us thought it was

Going to end that way

People are people

And sometimes we change our minds

But it's killing me to see you go after all this time

Mm mm mm, mm mm mm, mm mm

Mm mm mm, mm mm mm, mm mm

Music starts playing like the end of a sad movie

It's the kind of ending you

Don't really want to see

'Cause it's tragedy and it'll only bring you

Down

Now I don't know what to be without you around

[Chorus]

And we know it's never simple, never easy

Never a clean break, no one here to

Save me

You're the only thing I know like the back of my hand

And I can't

Breathe

Without you but I have to breathe

Without you but I have to

[Verse 2]

Never wanted this, never want to see you hurt

Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve

But people are people

And sometimes it doesn't work out

Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

It's 2 A.M

Feeling like I just lost a friend

Hope you know it's not easy

Easy for me

It's 2 A.M

Feeling like I just lost a friend

Hope you know this ain't easy

Easy for me

[Chorus]

[Outro]

Sorry, sorry

Sorry, (Yeah eh) sorry

Sorry, sorry

Sorry


Tell me Why

[Verse 1]

I took a chance

I took a shot

And you might think I'm bulletproof

But I'm not

You took a swing

I took it hard

And down here from the ground I see who you are

[Chorus]

I'm sick and tired of your attitude

I'm feeling like I don't know you

You tell me that you love me, then you cut me down

And I need you like a heartbeat

But you know you got a mean streak

That makes me run for cover when you're around

And here's to you and your temper

Yes, I remember what you said last night

And I know, that you see, what you're doing to me

Tell me why

[Verse 2]

You could write a book on how to ruin someone's perfect day

Well I get so confused and frustrated

Forget what I'm trying to say, oh

[Chorus]

I'm sick and tired of your reasons

I got no one to believe in

You tell me that you want me, then push me around

And I need you like a heartbeat

But you know you got a mean streak

That makes me run for cover when you're around

Here's to you and your temper

Yes, I remember what you said last night

And I know, that you see, what you're doing to me

Tell me why

[Bridge]

Why do you have to make me feel small

So you can feel whole inside?

Why do you have to put down my dreams

So you're the only thing on my mind?

[Chorus]

I'm sick and tired of your attitude

I'm feeling like I don't know you

You tell me that you want me, then cut me down

I'm sick and tired of your reasons

I've got no one to believe in

You ask me for my love, then you push me around

Here's to you and your temper

Yes, I remember what you said last night

And I know that you see what you're doing to me

Tell me why (why)

Tell me why (why)

[Outro]

I take a step back, let you go

I told you I'm not bulletproof

Now you know


You’re not Sorry

[Verse 1]

All this time I was wasting hoping you would come around

I've been giving out chances every time and all you do is let me down

And it's taken me this long baby but I've figured you out

And you're thinking we'll be fine again but not this time around

[Hook]

You don't have to call anymore

I won't pick up the phone

This is the last straw

Don't wanna hurt anymore

And you can tell me that you're sorry

But I don't believe you baby like I did before

You're not sorry (No no no no)

[Verse 2]

You're looking so innocent

I might believe you if I didn't know

Could've loved you all my life if you hadn't left me waiting in the cold

And you've got your share of secrets

And I'm tired of being last to know

And now you're asking me to listen 'cause it's worked each time before but

[Hook]

You don't have to call anymore

I won't pick up the phone

This is the last straw

Don't wanna hurt anymore

And you can tell me that you're sorry

But I don't believe you baby like I did before

You're not sorry (No no no no)

You're not sorry (No no no no)

[Bridge]

You had me crawling for you honey and it never would have gone away

You used to shine so bright but I watched all of it fade so

[Hook]

You don't have to call anymore

I won't pick up the phone

This is the last straw

There's nothing left to beg for

And you can tell me that you're sorry

But I don't believe you baby like I did before

You're not sorry (No no no no)

You're not sorry (No no no no)

(No, no, no...)


The Way I loved you

[Verse 1]

He is sensible and so incredible

And all my single friends are jealous

He says everything I need to hear and it's like

I couldn't ask for anything better

He opens up my door and I get into his car

And he says you look beautiful tonight

And I feel perfectly fine

[Chorus]

But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain

And it's 2am and I'm cursing your name

You're so in love that you act insane

And that's the way I loved you

Breaking down and coming undone

It's a roller coaster kind of rush

And I never knew I could feel that much

And that's the way I loved you

[Verse 2]

He respects my space

And never makes me wait

And he calls exactly when he says he will

He's close to my mother

Talks business with my father

He's charming and endearing

And I'm comfortable

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

He can't see the smile I'm faking

And my heart's not breaking

'Cause I'm not feeling anything at all

And you were wild and crazy

Just so frustrating intoxicating

Complicated, got away by some mistake and now

[Chorus]

I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain

It's 2am and I'm cursing your name

I'm so in love that I acted insane

And that's the way I loved you

Breaking down and coming undone

It's a roller coaster kind of rush

And I never knew I could feel that much

And that's the way I loved you oh, oh

[Outro]

And that's the way I loved you oh, oh

Never knew I could feel that much

And that's the way I loved you


Forever and Always

[Verse 1]

Once upon a time

I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye

And we caught onto something

I hold onto the night, you looked me in the eye and told me you loved me

Were you just kidding?

'Cause it seems to me, this thing is breaking down

We almost never speak

I don't feel welcome anymore

Baby what happened, please tell me?

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

[Chorus]

And I stare at the phone, he still hasn't called

And then you feel so low you can't feel nothing at all

And you flashback to when he said forever and always

Oh, and it rains in your bedroom

Everything is wrong

It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone

'Cause I was there when you said forever and always

[Verse 2]

Was I out of line?

Did I say something way too honest, made you run and hide

Like a scared little boy

I looked into your eyes

Thought I knew you for a minute, now I'm not so sure

So here's to everything coming down to nothing

Here's to silence that cuts me to the core

Where is this going?

Thought I knew for a minute, but I don't anymore

[Chorus]

And I stare at the phone, he still hasn't called

And then you feel so low you can't feel nothing at all

And you flashback to when he said forever and always

Oh, and it rains in your bedroom

Everything is wrong

It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone

'Cause I was there when you said forever and always

You didn't mean it baby, I don't think so

[Bridge]

Oh, back up, baby, back up

Did you forget everything?

Back up, baby, back up

Did you forget everything?

[Chorus]

'Cause it rains in your bedroom

Everything is wrong

It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone

'Cause I was there when you said forever and always

Oh I stare at the phone, he still hasn't called

And then you feel so low you can't feel nothing at all

And you flashback to when we said forever and always

And it rains in your bedroom

Everything is wrong

It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone

'Cause I was there when you said forever and always

You didn't mean it baby, you said forever and always, yeah


The Best Day

[Verse 1]

I'm five years old, it's getting cold, I've got my big coat on

I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you, I run and run

Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides

Look now, the sky is gold

I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

[Chorus]

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall

But I know you're not scared of anything at all

Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away

But I know I had the best day with you today

[Verse 2]

I'm thirteen now

And don't know how my friends could be so mean

I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys

And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away

And we talk and window shop 'til I've forgotten all their names

[Chorus]

I don't know who I'm going to talk to now at school

But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you

Don't know how long it's going to take to feel okay

But I know I had the best day with you today

[Bridge]

I have an excellent father, his strength is making me stronger

God smiles on my little brother, inside and out

He's better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run

And I had the best days with you

[Verse 3]

There is a video I found from back when I was three

You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me

It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs

And Daddy's smart

And you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

[Chorus]

And now I know why all the trees change in the fall

I know you were on my side even when I was wrong

And I love you for giving me your eyes

For staying back and watching me shine

And I didn't know if you knew, so I'm taking this chance to say

That I had the best day with you today


Change

[Verse 1]

And it's a sad picture, the final blow hits you

Somebody else gets what you wanted again and

You know it's all the same, another time and place

Repeating history and you're getting sick of it

But I believe in whatever you do

And I'll do anything to see it through

[Chorus]

Because these things will change

Can you feel it now?

These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down

This revolution, the time will come

For us to finally win

And we'll sing hallelujah, we'll sing hallelujah

Oh, oh

[Verse 2]

So we've been outnumbered, raided, and now cornered

It's hard to fight when the fight ain’t fair

We're getting stronger now, finding things they never found

They might be bigger but we're faster and never scared

You can walk away, say we don't need this

But there's something in your eyes says we can beat this

[Chorus]

'Cause these things will change

Can you feel it now?

These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down

This revolution, the time will come

For us to finally win

And we'll sing hallelujah, we'll sing hallelujah

Oh, oh

[Bridge]

Tonight we stand, get off our knees

Fight for what we've worked for all these years

And the battle was long, it's the fight of our lives

But we'll stand up champions tonight

[Chorus]

It was the night things changed

Can you see it now?

These walls that they put up to hold us back fell down

It's a revolution, throw your hands up

'Cause we never gave in

And we'll sing hallelujah, we sang hallelujah

Hallelujah


Mine

[Verse 1]

You were in college, working part-time, waiting tables

Left a small town and never looked back

I was a flight risk, with a fear of falling

Wondering why we bother with love, if it never lasts

[Pre-Chorus 1]

I say, "Can you believe it?"

As we're lying on the couch

The moment, I could see it

Yes, yes, I can see it now

[Chorus]

Do you remember, we were sitting there, by the water?

You put your arm around me for the first time

You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter

You are the best thing that's ever been mine

[Verse 2]

Flash forward, and we're taking on the world together

And there's a drawer of my things at your place

You learn my secrets and figure out why I'm guarded

You say we'll never make my parents' mistakes

[Pre-Chorus 2]

But we got bills to pay

We got nothing figured out

When it was hard to take

Yes, yes

This is what I thought about:

[Chorus]

Do you remember, we were sitting there, by the water?

You put your arm around me for the first time

You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter

You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Do you remember all the city lights on the water?

You saw me start to believe for the first time

You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter

You are the best thing that's ever been mine

[Bridge]

And I remember that fight, 2:30 AM

As everything was slipping right out of our hands

I ran out, crying, and you followed me out into the street

Braced myself for the goodbye

'Cause that's all I've ever known

Then, you took me by surprise

You said, "I'll never leave you alone."

[Chorus 2]

You said, "I remember how we felt, sitting by the water

And every time I look at you, it's like the first time

I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter

She is the best thing that's ever been mine"

Hold on, make it last

Hold on, never turn back

You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter

You are the best thing that's ever been mine

[Outro]

Yeah, yeah

Do you believe it?

(Hold on)

We're gonna make it now

(Hold on)

And I can see it

Yeah, yeah

I can see it now (see it now)


Sparks Fly

[Verse 1]

The way you move is like a full on rainstorm

And I'm a house of cards

You're the kind of reckless

That should send me running

But I kinda know that I won't get far

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

[Chorus]

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

Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around

'Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

[Verse 2]

My mind forgets to remind me

You're a bad idea

You touch me once and it's really something

You find I'm even better than you imagined I would be

I'm on my guard for the rest of the world

But with you I know it's no good

And I could wait patiently but I really wish you would

[Chorus]

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

Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around

'Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

[Bridge]

I run my fingers through your hair and watch the lights go wild

Just keep on keeping your eyes on me, it's just wrong enough to make it feel right

And lead me up the staircase

Won't you whisper soft and slow?

I'm captivated by you, baby, like a firework show

[Chorus]

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

Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around

'Cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

[Outro]

And the sparks fly

Oh, baby, smile

And the sparks fly


Back To December

[Verse 1]

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 than ever

We small talk, work and the weather

Your guard is up and I know why

[Pre-Chorus]

'Cause 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

[Chorus]

So this is me swallowing my pride

Standing in front of you, saying I'm sorry for that night

And I'd go back to December all the time

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you

Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine

[Post-Chorus]

I'd go back to December, turn around and make it alright

I go back to December all the time

[Verse 2]

These days I haven't been sleeping

Staying up playing back myself leaving

When your birthday passed and I didn't call

And I think about summer, all the beautiful times

I watched you laughing from the passenger side and

Realized I loved you in the fall

[Pre-Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

So this is me swallowing my pride

Standing in front of you, saying I'm sorry for that night

And I'd go back to December all the time

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you

Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine

[Post-Chorus]

I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind

I go back to December all the time

[Bridge]

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

[Interlude]

But this is me swallowing my pride

Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night

And I'd go back to December...

[Chorus]

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you

Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine

[Post-Chorus]

I'd go back to December, turn around and make it alright

I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind

I go back to December all the time

[Outro]

All the time


Speak Now

[Intro]

I am not the kind of girl

Who should be rudely barging in

On a white veil occasion

But you are not the kind of boy

Who should be marrying the wrong girl

[Verse 1]

I sneak in and see your friends

And her snotty little family

All dressed in pastel

And she is yelling at a bridesmaid

Somewhere back inside a room

Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

[Pre-Chorus]

This is surely not

What you thought it would be

I lose myself in a daydream

Where I stand and say

[Chorus]

Don't say yes, run away now

I'll meet you when you're out

Of the church at the back door

Don't wait or say a single vow

You need to hear me out

And they said "speak now"

[Verse 2]

Fond gestures are exchanged

And the organ starts to play

A song that sounds like a death march

And I am hiding in the curtains

It seems that I was uninvited

By your lovely bride-to-be

[Pre-Chorus]

She floats down the aisle

Like a pageant queen

But I know you wish it was me

You wish it was me (Don't you)

[Chorus]

Don't say yes, run away now

I'll meet you when you're out

Of the church at the back door

Don't wait or say a single vow

You need to hear me out

And they said "speak now"

[Chorus]

Don't say yes, run away now

I'll meet you when you're out

Of the church at the back door

Don't wait or say a single vow

You need to hear me out

And they said "speak now"

[Interlude]

Ooh, la-da-da-da, oh

Ooh, ooh

(Say a single vow)

[Bridge]

I hear the preacher say

"Speak now or forever hold your peace"

There's the silence, there's my last chance

I stand up with shaking hands, all eyes on me

Horrified looks from everyone in the room

But I'm only looking at you

[Verse 3]

I am not the kind of girl

Who should be rudely barging in

On a white veil occasion

But you are not the kind of boy

Who should be marrying the wrong girl

(Hehe!)

[Chorus]

Don't say yes, run away now

I'll meet you when you're out

Of the church at the back door

Don't wait or say a single vow

You need to hear me out

And they said "speak now"

[Chorus - Variation]

And you say

"Let's run away now

I'll meet you when

I'm out of my tux at the back door"

Baby, I didn't say my vows

So glad you were around when they said

"Speak now"


Dear John

[Verse 1]

Long were the nights when

My days once revolved around you

Counting my footsteps

Praying the floor won't fall through... again

My mother accused me of losing my mind

But I swore I was fine

You paint me a blue sky

Then go back and turn it to rain

And I lived in your chess game

But you changed the rules everyday

Wonderin' which version of you I might get on the phone, tonight

Well I stopped pickin' up and this song is to let you know why

[Chorus]

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young to be messed with

The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

I shoulda' known

[Verse 2]

Well maybe it's me

And my blind optimism to blame

Or maybe it's you and your sick need

To give love and take it away

And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors

Who don't understand

And I look back in regret how I ignored when they said

"Run as fast as you can"

[Chorus]

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young to be messed with

The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong

Don't you think nineteen's too young

To be played by your dark, twisted games

When I loved you so?

I shoulda' known

[Bridge]

You are an expert at sorry

And keeping the lines blurry

Never impressed by me acing your tests

All the girls that you've run dry have tired lifeless eyes

'Cause you burned them out

But I took your matches

Before fire could catch me

So don't look now

I'm shining like fireworks

Over your sad empty town, yeah

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young to be messed with

The girl in the dress cried the whole way home

[Outro]

I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young to be messed with

The girl in the dress

Wrote you a song, you shoulda' known

You shoulda' known

Don't you think I was too young

You shoulda' known


Mean

[Verse 1]

You, with your words like knives

And swords and weapons that you use against me

You have knocked me off my feet again

Got me feeling like I'm nothing

You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard

Calling me out when I'm wounded

You, picking on the weaker man

[Pre-Chorus]

But you can take me down with just one single blow

But you don't know what you don't know

[Chorus]

Someday, I'll be living in a big old city

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

[Verse 2]

You, with your switching sides

And your wildfire lies and your humiliation

You have pointed out my flaws again

As if I don't already see them

I walk with my head down, trying to block you out

'Cause I'll never impress you

I just want to feel okay again

[Pre-Chorus]

I bet you got pushed around

Somebody made you cold

But the cycle ends right now

'Cause you can't lead me down that road

And you don't know what you don't know

[Chorus]

Someday, I'll be living in a big old city

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

[Bridge]

And I can see you years from now in a bar

Talking over a football game

With that same big loud opinion

But nobody's listening

Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things

Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing

But all you are is mean

All you are is mean

And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life

And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big old city

And all you're ever going to be is mean, yeah!

[Chorus]

Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever going to be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?

Someday, I'll be living in a big old city

(Why you gotta be so mean?)

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

(Why you gotta be so mean?)

Someday, I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

(Why you gotta be so mean?)

And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?


Story of Us

[Verse 1]

I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us

How we met

And the sparks flew instantly

And people would say they're the lucky ones

I used to know my place was a 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

[Pre-Chorus]

Oh, a simple complication

Miscommunications lead to fallout

So many things that I wish you knew

So many walls up that I can't break through

[Chorus]

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

[Verse 2]

Next chapter

How'd we end up this way?

See me nervously pulling at 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

Of how I was losing my mind when I saw you here

But you held your pride like you should have held me

[Pre-Chorus]

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

I've never heard silence quite this loud

[Chorus]

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

[Bridge]

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's in your hands now

But I would lay my armor down

If you say you'd rather love than fight

So many things that you wish I knew

But the story of us might be ending soon

[Chorus]

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, now, now

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, because we're going down

And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

The End


Never Grow Up

[Verse 1]

Your little hand's wrapped around my finger

And it's so quiet in the world tonight

Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming

So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light

To you everything's funny, you got nothing to regret

I'd give all I have, honey

If you could stay like that

[Chorus]

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart

And no one will desert you

Just try to never grow up, never grow up

[Verse 2]

You're in the car on the way to the movies

And you're mortified your mom's dropping you off

At 14 there's just so much you can't do

And you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots

But don't make her drop you off around the block

Remember that she's getting older too

And don't lose the way that you dance around in your pj's getting ready for school

[Chorus]

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

No one's ever burned you, nothing's ever left you scarred

And even though you want to, just try to never grow up

[Verse 3]

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room

Memorize what it sounded like when your dad gets home

Remember the footsteps, remember the words said

And all your little brother's favorite songs

I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment

In a big city, they just dropped me off

It's so much colder that I thought it would be

So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I'd never grown up

I wish I'd never grown up

[Chorus]

Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up

I could still be little

Oh I don't wanna grow up, wish I'd never grown up

It could still be simple

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

Won't let nobody hurt you

Won't let no one break your heart

And even though you want to, please try to never grow up

Oh, don't you ever grow up

Oh, never grow up, just never grow up


Enchanted

[Verse 1]
There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place
Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes and vacancy
Vanished when I saw your face
All I can say is
It was enchanting to meet you

[Verse 2]
Your eyes whispered "have we met?"
Across the room your silhouette
Starts to make its way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks
Like passing notes in secrecy
And it was
Enchanting to meet you
All I can say is
I was enchanted to meet you

[Hook]
This night is sparkling
Don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck
Blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever
Wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

[Verse 3]
The lingering question kept me up
2AM, who do you love?
I wonder 'til I'm wide awake
And now I'm pacing back and forth
Wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say "hey"
It was
Enchanting to meet you
All I know is I was
Enchanted to meet you

[Hook]
This night is sparkling

Don't you let it go

I'm wonderstruck
Blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever
Wondering if you knew

This night is flawless
Don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck
Dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever
Wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

[Bridge]
This is me praying that
This was the very first page
Not where the storyline ends
My thoughts will echo your name
Until I see you again
These are the words I held back
As I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you

[Refrein]
Please don't be in love
With someone else
Please don't have somebody
Waiting on you
Please don't be in love
With someone else
Please don't have somebody
Waiting on you

[Hook]
This night is sparkling
Don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck
Blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever
Wondering if you knew

This night is flawless
Don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck
Dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever
Wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

[Outro]
Please don't be in love
With someone else
Please don't have somebody
Waiting on you


Better Than Revenge

[Intro]
Now go stand in the corner and think about what you did
Ha, time for a little revenge

[Verse 1]
The story starts when it was hot and it was summer and
I had it all, I had him right there, where I wanted him
She came along, got him alone, and let's hear the applause
She took him faster than you can say sabotage

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I never saw it coming, wouldn't have suspected it
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum
She underestimated just who she was stealing from

[Chorus]
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
She's an actress, whoa
She's better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, whoa
Soon she's gonna find stealing other people's toys
On the playground won't make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, HA!

[Verse 2]
She looks at life like it's a party and she's on the list
She looks at me like I'm a trend and she's so over it
I think her ever present frown is a little

troubling
And she thinks I'm psycho 'cause I like to rhyme her name with things

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But sophistication isn't what you wear or who you know
Or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go
Oh they didn't teach you that in prep school, so it's up to me
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity

[Chorus]
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
She's an actress, whoa
She's better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, whoa
Soon she's gonna find stealing other people's toys
On the playground won't make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, HA!

[Bridge]
I'm just another thing
for you to roll your eyes at, honey
You might have him, but haven't you heard?
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at, honey
You might have him, but I always get the last word
Whoa, whoa-ah-oh

[Chorus]
She's not a saint and she's not what you think
She's an actress, whoa
She's better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, whoa
Soon she's gonna find stealing other people's toys
On the playground won't make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, HA!

[Outro]
Do you still feel like you know what you're doing?
'Cause I don't think you do, oh
Do you still feel like you know what you're doing?
I don't think you do, I don't think you do
Let's hear the applause
And show me how much better you are
See you deserve some applause
'Cause you're so much better
She took him faster than you could say sabotage


Innocent

[Verse 1]

I guess you really did it this time

Left yourself in your warpath

Lost your balance on a tightrope

Lost your mind trying to get it back

[Pre-Chorus]

Wasn't it easier in your lunchbox days?

Always a bigger bed to crawl into

Wasn't it beautiful when you believed in everything

And everybody believed in you?

[Chorus]

It's alright, just wait and see

Your string of lights is still bright to me

Oh, who you are is not where you've been

You're still an innocent

You're still an innocent

[Verse 2]

Did some things you can't speak of

But at night you live it all again

You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now

If only you had seen what you know now then

[Pre-Chorus]

Wasn't it easier in your firefly-catching days?

When everything out of reach, someone bigger brought down to you

Wasn't it beautiful running wild 'til you fell asleep

Before the monsters caught up to you?

[Chorus]

It's alright, just wait and see

Your string of lights is still bright to me

Oh, who you are is not where you've been

You're still an innocent

It's okay, life is a tough crowd

32, and still growing up now

Who you are is not what you did

You're still an innocent

[Bridge]

Time turns flames to embers

You'll have new Septembers

Every one of us has messed up too

Lives change like the weather

I hope you remember

Today is never too late to be brand new

[Chorus]

It's alright, just wait and see

Your string of lights is still bright to me

Oh, who you are is not where you've been

You're still an innocent

It's okay, life is a tough crowd

32, and still growing up now

Who you are is not what you did

You're still an innocent

You're still an innocent

[Outro]

Lost your balance on a tightrope

It's never too late to get it back


Haunted

[Verse 1]

You and I walk a fragile line

I have known it all this time

But I never thought I'd live to see it break

It's getting dark and it's all too quiet

And I can't trust anything now

And it's coming over you like it's all a big mistake

[Pre-Chorus]

Whoa, holding my breath

Won't lose you again

Something's made your eyes go cold

[Chorus]

C'mon, c'mon, don't leave me like this

I thought I had you figured out

Something's gone terribly wrong

You're all I wanted

C'mon, c'mon, don't leave me like this

I thought I had you figured out

Can't breathe whenever you're gone

Can't turn back now I'm haunted

[Verse 2]

Stood there and watched you walk away

From everything we had

But I still mean every word I said to you

He will try to take away my pain

And he just might make me smile

But the whole time I'm wishing it was you instead

[Pre-Chorus]

Oh, holding my breath

Won't see you again

Something keeps me holding onto nothing

[Chorus]

C'mon, c'mon, don't leave me like this

I thought I had you figured out

Something's gone terribly wrong

You're all I wanted

C'mon, c'mon, don't leave me like this

I thought I had you figured out

Can't breathe whenever you're gone

Can't turn back now I'm haunted

[Bridge]

I know

I know

I just know

You're not gone, you can't be gone, no

[Chorus]

C'mon, c'mon, don't leave me like this

I thought I had you figured out

Something's gone terribly wrong

Won't finish what you started

C'mon, c'mon, don't leave me like this

I thought I had you figured out

Can't breathe whenever you're gone

Can't turn back now I'm haunted

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

[Outro]

You and I walk a fragile line

I have known it all this time

Never ever thought I'd see it break

Never thought I'd see it


Last Kiss

[Verse 1]

I still remember the look on your face

Lit through the darkness at 1:58

The words that you whispered

For just us to know

You told me you loved me

So why did you go away?

Away

I do recall now the smell of the rain

Fresh on the pavement

I ran off the plane

That July 9th

The beat of your heart

It jumps through your shirt

I can still feel your arms

[Chorus]

But now I'll go sit on the floor

Wearing your clothes

All that I know is

I don't know how to be something you miss

I never thought we'd have a last kiss

Never imagined we'd end like this

Your name, forever the name on my lips

[Verse 2]

I do remember the swing of your step

The life of the party, you're showing off again

And I roll my eyes and then

You pull me in

I'm not much for dancing

But for you I did

Because I love your handshake, meeting my father

I love how you walk with your hands in your pockets

How you kissed me when I was in the middle of saying something

There's not a day I don't miss those rude interruptions

[Chorus]

But now I'll go sit on the floor

Wearing your clothes

All that I know is

I don't know how to be something you miss

I never thought we'd have a last kiss

Never imagined we'd end like this

Your name, forever the name on my lips

[Bridge]

So I'll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep

And I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe

And I keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are

Hope it's nice where you are

And I hope the sun shines

And it's a beautiful day

And something reminds you

You wish you had stayed

You can plan for a change in weather and time

But I never planned on you changing your mind

[Chorus]

So I'll go sit on the floor

Wearing your clothes

All that I know is

I don't know how to be something you miss

I never thought we'd have a last kiss

Never imagined we'd end like this

Your name, forever the name on my lips

Just like our last kiss

Forever the name on my lips

Forever the name on my lips

[Outro]

Just like our last


Long Live

[Verse 1]

I said remember this moment, in the back of my mind

The time we stood with our shaking hands

The crowds in the stands went wild

We were the Kings and the Queens

And they read off our names

The night you danced like you knew our lives

Would never be the same

You held your head like a hero

On a history book page

It was the end of a decade

But the start of an age

[Chorus]

Long live the walls we crashed through

All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you

I was screaming long live all the magic we made

And bring on all the pretenders

One day, we will be remembered

[Verse 2]

I said remember this feeling

I passed the pictures around

Of all the years that we stood there

On the side-lines wishing for right now

We are the Kings and the Queens

You traded your baseball cap for a crown

When they gave us our trophies

And we held them up for our town

And the cynics were outraged

Screaming "this is absurd"

Cause for a moment a band of thieves

In ripped up jeans got to rule the world

[Chorus]

Long live the walls we crashed through

All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you

I was screaming long live all the magic we made

And bring on all the pretenders

I'm not afraid

Long live all the mountains we moved

I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you

I was screaming long live that look on your face

And bring on all the pretenders

One day, we will be remembered

[Bridge]

Hold on to spinning around

Confetti falls to the ground

May these memories break our fall

Will you take a moment?

Promise me this

That you'll stand by me forever

But if God forbid fate should step in

And force us into a goodbye

If you have children someday

When they point to the pictures

Please tell them my name

Tell them how the crowds went wild

Tell them how I hope they shine

Long live the walls we crashed through

I had the time of my life, with you

[Chorus]

Long, long live the walls we crashed through

All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you

I was screaming long live all the magic we made

And bring on all the pretenders

I'm not afraid

Singing, long live all the mountains we moved

I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you

And long, long live that look on your face

And bring on all the pretenders

One day, we will be remembered


Ours

[Verse 1]

Elevator buttons and morning air

Strangers' silence makes me want to take the stairs

If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares

But right now my time is theirs

Seems like there's always someone who disapproves

They'll judge it like they know about me and you

And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do

The jury's out, but my choice is you

[Chorus]

So don't you worry your pretty little mind

People throw rocks at things that shine

And life makes love look hard

The stakes are high, the water's rough

But this love is ours

[Verse 2]

You never know what people have up their sleeves

Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me

Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles

But I don't care 'cause right now you're mine

[Chorus]

And you'll say

Don't you worry your pretty little mind

People throw rocks at things that shine

And life makes love look hard

The stakes are high, the water's rough

But this love is ours

[Bridge]

And it's not theirs to speculate if it's wrong

And your hands are tough, but they are where mine belong

And I'll fight their doubt and give you faith

With this song for you

'Cause I love the gap between your teeth

And I love the riddles that you speak

And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored

'Cause my heart is yours

[Chorus]

So don't you worry your pretty little mind

People throw rocks at things that shine

And life makes love look hard

Don't you worry your pretty little mind

People throw rocks at things that shine

But they can't take what's ours

They can't take what's ours

[Outro]

The stakes are high, the water's rough

But this love is ours


If This Was a Movie

[Verse 1]

Last night I heard my own heart beating

Sounded like footsteps on my stairs

Six months gone and I'm still reaching

Even though I know you're not there

I was playing back a thousand memories, baby

Thinkin' 'bout everything we've been through

Maybe I've been going back too much lately

When time stood still and I had you

[Chorus]

Come back, come back, come back to me like

You would, you would if this was a movie

Stand in the rain outside till I came out

Come back, come back, come back to me like

You could, you could if you just said you're sorry

I know that we could work it out somehow

But if this was a movie you'd be here by now

[Verse 2]

I know people change and these things happen

But I remember how it was back then

Wrapped up in your arms and our friends were laughing

Cause nothing like this ever happened to them

Now I'm pacing down the hall, chasing down your street

Flashback to the night when you said to me

"Nothing's gonna change, not for me and you"

Not before I knew how much I had to lose

[Chorus]

Come back, come back, come back to me like

You would, you would if this was a movie

Stand in the rain outside till I came out

Come back, come back, come back to me like

You could, you could if you just said you're sorry

I know that we could work it out somehow

But if this was a movie you'd be here by now

[Bridge]

If you're out there, if you're somewhere, if you're moving on

I've been waiting for you ever since you've been gone

I just want it back the way it was before

And I just want to see you back at my front door

[Chorus - Variation]

And I say "Come back, come back, come back to me like

You would before you said it's not that easy

Before the fight, before I locked you out"

But I take it all back now

[Chorus]

Come back, come back, come back to me like

You would, you would if this was a movie

Stand in the rain outside till I came out

Come back, come back, come back to me like

You could, you could if you just said you're sorry

I know that we could work it out somehow

But if this was a movie you'd be here by now

[Outro]

You'd be here by now

It's not the kind of ending you want to see now

Baby, what about the ending?

Oh, I thought you'd be here by now

Thought you'd be here by now


Superman

[Verse 1]

Tall, dark, and Superman

He puts papers in his briefcase and drives away

To save the world or go to work

It's the same thing to me

He's got his mother's eyes, his father's ambition

I wonder if he knows how much that I miss him

I hang on every word you say, yay

And you smile and say, "How are you?”

I say, "Just fine"

I always forget to tell you, I love you, I love you forever

[Chorus]

I watch superman fly away

You've got a busy day today

Go save the world, I'll be around

I watch superman fly away

Come back I'll be with you someday

I'll be right here on the ground

When you come back down

[Verse 2]

Tall, dark and beautiful

He's complicated, he's irrational

But I hope someday you'll take me away and save the day, yeah

Something in his deep brown eyes has me sayin'

He's not all bad like his reputation

And I can't hear one single word they say

And you'll leave, got places to be and I'll be OK

I always forget to tell you I love you, I loved you from the very first day

[Chorus]

I watch superman fly away

You've got a busy day today

Go save the world, I'll be around

I watch superman fly away

Come back I'll be with you someday

I'll be right here on the ground

When you come back down

[Bridge]

And I watch you fly around the world

And I hope you don't save some other girl

Don't forget, don't forget about me

I'm far away but I never let you go

I'm love-struck and looking out the window

Don't forget, don't forget where I'll be

Right here wishing the flowers were from you

Wishing the card was from you

Wishing the call was from you

Cause I loved you from the very first day

[Chorus - Variation]

I watch superman fly away

You've got a busy day today

Go save the world, I'll be around

Forever and ever here

I watch superman fly away

I swear I'll be with you someday

I'll be right here on the ground

When you come back down

[Outro]

La, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la

When you come back down


State of Grace

[Verse 1]

I'm walking fast through the traffic lights

Busy streets and busy lives

And all we know is touch and go

We are alone with our changing minds

We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds, or fades in time

[Chorus]

And I never saw you coming

And I’ll never be the same

[Verse 2]

You come around and the armor falls

Pierce the room like a cannonball

Now all we know, is don’t let go

We are alone just you and me

Up in your room and our slates are clean

Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes

So you were never a saint

And I've loved in shades of wrong

We learn to live with the pain

Mosaic broken hearts

But this love is brave and wild

[Chorus]

And I never saw you coming

And I’ll never be the same

[Bridge]

This is a state of grace

This is the worthwhile fight

Love is a ruthless game

Unless you play it good and right

These are the hands of fate

You’re my Achilles heel

This is the golden age of something good

And right and real

[Chorus]

And I never saw you coming

And I’ll never be the same

And I never saw you coming

And I’ll never be the same

[Outro]

This is a state of grace

This is a worthwhile fight

Love is a ruthless game

Unless you play it good and right


Red

[Verse 1]

Loving him is like driving a new Maserati

Down a dead-end street

Faster than the wind, passionate as sin

Ending so suddenly

Loving him is like trying to change your mind

Once you're already flying through the free fall

Like the colors in autumn, so bright

Just before they lose it all

[Chorus]

Losing him was blue like I'd never known

Missing him was dark grey, all alone

Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met

But loving him was red

[Verse 2]

Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted

Was right there in front of you

Memorizing him was as easy as knowing

All the words to your old favorite song

Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword

And realizing there's no right answer

Regretting him was like wishing you never found out

That love could be that strong

[Chorus]

Losing him was blue like I'd never known

Missing him was dark grey, all alone

Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met

But loving him was red

[Bridge]

Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes

Tell myself it's time now, gotta let go

But moving on from him is impossible

When I still see it all in my head

In burning red

Loving him was red

[Chorus]

Losing him was blue like I'd never known

Missing him was dark grey, all alone

Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met

But loving him was red

[Outro]

And that's why he's spinning 'round in my head

Comes back to me, burning red

Yeah, yeah

His love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street


Treacherous

[Verse 1]

Put your lips close to mine

As long as they don't touch

Out of focus, eye to eye

Till the gravity's too much

And I'll do anything you say

If you say it with your hands

And I'd be smart to walk away

But you're quicksand

[Chorus]

This slope is treacherous

This path is reckless

This slope is treacherous

And I I I like it

[Verse 2]

I can't decide if it's a choice

Getting swept away

I hear the sound of my own voice

Asking you to stay

And all we are is skin and bone trained to get along

Forever going with the flow but you're friction

[Chorus]

This slope is treacherous

This path is reckless

This slope is treacherous

And I I I like it

[Bridge]

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night

And I will get you get you alone

Your name has echoed through my mind

And I just think you should think you should know

That nothing safe is worth the drive

And I will follow you follow you home, follow you follow you home

[Chorus]

This hope is treacherous

This daydream is dangerous

This slope is treacherous

And I-I-I, I-I-I, I-I-I

[Bridge]

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night

And I will get you get you alone

Your name has echoed through my mind

And I just think you should think you should know

That nothing safe is worth the drive

And I will follow you follow you home, follow you follow you home

[Chorus]

This hope is treacherous

This daydream is dangerous

This hope is treacherous

I-I-I, I-I-I, I-I-I ...


I Knew You Were Trouble

[Verse 1]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

And he's long gone, when he's next to me

And I realize the blame is on me

[Chorus]

'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Till you put me down, oh

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble

Oh, oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble

[Verse 2]

No apologies, he'll never see you cry

Pretends he doesn't know that he's the reason why

You're drowning, you're drowning

You're drowning

And I heard you moved on, from whispers on the street

A new notch in your belt is all I'll ever be

And now I see, now I see

Now I see

[Pre-Chorus]

He was long gone when he met me

And I realize the joke is on me, hey!

[Chorus]

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Till you put me down, oh

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble

Oh, oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble

[Bridge]

And the saddest fear, comes creeping in

That you never loved me

Or her, or anyone, or anything, yeah!

[Chorus]

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Till you put me down, oh

I knew you were trouble when you walked in

So shame on me now

Flew me to places I'd never been

Now I'm lying on the cold hard ground

Oh, oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble

Oh, oh

Trouble, trouble, trouble


All too Well

[Verse 1]

I walked through the door with you, the air was cold

But something 'bout it felt like home somehow and I

Left my scarf there at your sister's house

And you've still got it in your drawer, even now

Oh, your sweet disposition

And my wide-eyed gaze

We're singing in a car getting lost Upstate

The autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place

And I can picture it after all these days

[Pre-Chorus]

And I know it's long gone, and that magic's not here no more

And I might be okay, but I'm not fine at all

[Chorus]

'Cause there we are again on that little town street

You almost ran the red 'cause you were looking over at me

Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well

[Verse 2]

Photo album on the counter

Your cheeks were turning red

You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed

And your mother's telling stories 'bout you on the tee ball team

You taught me about your past thinking your future was me

[Pre-Chorus]

And I know it's long gone, and there was nothing else I could do

And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to

[Chorus]

'Cause there we are again in the middle of the night

We're dancing round the kitchen in the refrigerator light

Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah

[Bridge]

And maybe we got lost in translation

Maybe I asked for too much

But maybe this thing was a masterpiece

'Till you tore it all up

Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well

And you call me up again just to break me like a promise

So casually cruel in the name of being honest

I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here

'Cause I remember it all, all, all... too well

[Verse 3]

Time won't fly it's like I'm paralyzed by it

I'd like to be my old self again

But I'm still trying to find it

After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own

Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone

But you keep my old scarf from that very first week

'Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me

You can't get rid of it, 'cause you remember it all too well, yeah

[Chorus]

Because there we are again when I loved you so

Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known

It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

[Outro]

Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it all

Down the stairs, you were there, you remember it all

It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well


22

[Verse 1]

It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters

And make fun of our exes, uh uh, uh uh

It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight

To fall in love with strangers, uh uh, uh uh

[Pre-Chorus]

Yeah

We're happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time

It's miserable and magical, oh yeah

Tonight's the night when we forget about the deadlines

It's time, uh uh

[Chorus]

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22

Everything will be alright if you keep me next to you

You don't know about me, but I bet you wanted to

Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22

22

[Verse 2]

It seems like one of those nights

This place is too crowded, too many cool kids, uh uh, uh uh

(Who's Taylor Swift, anyway? Ew)

It seems like one of those nights

We ditch the whole scene and end up dreaming

Instead of sleeping

[Pre-Chorus]

Yeah

We're happy, free, confused, and lonely in the best way

It's miserable and magical, oh yeah

Tonight's the night when we forget about

The heartbreaks, it's time

Oh oh

[Chorus]

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22

Everything will be alright if you keep me next to you

You don't know about me, but I bet you wanted to

Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22

22

I don't know about you

22, 22

[Bridge]

It feels like one of those nights

We ditch the whole scene

It feels like one of those nights

We won't be sleeping

It feels like one of those nights

You look like bad news, I gotta have you

I gotta have you

[Chorus]

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22

Everything will be alright if you keep me next to you

You don't know about me, but I bet you wanted to

Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22

22

Dancing like 22, yeah, 22, yeah yeah

[Outro]

It feels like one of those nights

We ditch the whole scene

It feels like one of those nights

We won't be sleeping

It feels like one of those nights

You look like bad news, I gotta have you

I gotta have you


I Almost Do

[Verse 1]
I bet this time of night you’re still up
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week
I bet you’re sitting in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city
And I bet sometimes you wonder about me

[Chorus]
And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every Time I don’t
I almost do, I almost do

[Verse 2]
I bet you think I either moved on or hate you
‘Cause each time you reach out there’s no reply
I bet it never, ever occurred to you that I can’t say hello to you
And risk another goodbye

[Chorus]
And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every Time I don’t
I almost do, I almost do

[Bridge]
Oh, we made quite a mess, babe
It’s probably better off this way
And I confess, baby
In my dreams you’re touching my face
And asking me if I'd want to try again with you
And I almost do

[Chorus]
And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you

And I hope you know that

Every Time I don’t
I almost do, I almost do

[Outro]
I bet this time of night you’re still up
I bet you’re tired from a long hard week
I bet you’re sittin' in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city
And I hope sometimes you wonder about me


We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

[Verse 1]

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 needed 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"

[Pre-Chorus]

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh

We called it off again last night but

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh

This time, I'm telling you, I'm telling you

[Chorus]

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

Like, ever

[Verse 2]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh

We called it off again last night but

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh

This time, I'm telling you, I'm telling you

[Chorus]

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

[Post-Chorus]

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh (yeah!)

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh (yeah!)

Ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh (yeah!)

Oh—oh—oh!

[Bridge]

I used to think that we were forever, ever

And I used to say, "Never say never"

Huh, so he calls me up and he's like, "I still love you"

And I'm like, "I just— I mean, this is exhausting, you know?

Like, we are never getting back together, like, ever"

[Chorus]

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

[Outro]

We— (ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh, ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh)

—getting back together

We— (ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh, ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh—ooh)

—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


Stay Stay Stay

[Verse 1]

I'm pretty sure we almost broke up last night

I threw my phone across the room, at you

I was expecting some dramatic turn away but you stay

This morning I said we should talk about it

'Cause I read you should never leave a fight unresolved

That's when you came in wearing a football helmet

And said okay let's talk

And I said

[Hook]

Stay, stay, stay

I've been loving you for quite some time, time, time

You think that it's funny when I'm mad, mad, mad

But I think that it's best if we both stay

[Verse 2]

Before you I'd only dated self-indulgent takers

Who took all of their problems out on me

But you carry my groceries and now I'm always laughing

And I love you because you have given me no choice but to

[Hook]

Stay, stay, stay

I've been loving you for quite some time, time, time

You think that it's funny when I'm mad, mad, mad

But I think that it's best if we both stay, stay, stay, stay

[Bridge]

You took the time to memorize me, my fears, my hopes and dreams

I just like hanging out with you, all the time

All those times that you didn't leave it's been occurring to me

I'd like to hang out with you, for my whole life

[Verse 3]

Stay, and I'll be loving you for quite some time

No one else is gonna love me when I get mad, mad, mad

So I think that it's best if we both stay, stay

Stay, stay, stay, stay!

[Hook]

Stay, stay, stay

I've been loving you for quite some time, time, time

You think that it's funny when I'm mad, mad, mad

But I think that it's best if we both stay, stay

Stay, stay, stay, stay!

Stay, stay, stay

I've been loving you for quite some time, time, time

You think that it's funny when I'm mad, mad, mad

But I think that it's best if we both stay

(ha-haha-eee, It's so fun)

 


The Last Time

[Verse 1: Gary Lightbody]

Find myself at your door

Just like all those times before

I’m not sure how I got there

All roads they lead me here

I imagine you are home

In your room, all alone

And you open your eyes into mine

And everything feels better

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Gary Lightbody]

And right before your eyes

I'm breaking

No fuss, no reasons why

Just you and me

(e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he)

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Gary Lightbody]

This is the last time I'm asking you this

Put my name at the top of your list

This is the last time I'm asking you why

You break my heart in the blink of an eye

(eye, eye)

[Verse 2: Taylor Swift]

You find yourself at my door

Just like all those times before

You wear your best apology

But I was there to watch you leave

And all the times I let you in

Just for you to go again

Disappear when you come back

Everything is better

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Gary Lightbody]

And right before your eyes

I'm aching

No fuss, nowhere to hide

Just you and me

(e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he-e-he)

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Gary Lightbody]

This is the last time I'm asking you this

Put my name at the top of your list

This is the last time I'm asking you why

You break my heart in the blink of an eye

(eye, eye)

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge: Taylor Swift and Gary Lightbody]

This is the last time you tell me I've got it wrong

This is the last time I say it's been you all along

This is the last time I let you in my door

This is the last time, I won't hurt you anymore

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Gary Lightbody]

This is the last time I'm asking you this

Put my name at the top of your list

This is the last time I'm asking you why

You break my heart in the blink of an eye

[Outro: Taylor Swift and Gary Lightbody]

This is the last time I'm asking you this

(This is the last time I'm asking you this)

Put my name at the top of your list

(Put my name at the top of your list)

This is the last time I'm asking you why

(This is the last time I'm asking you why)

You break my heart in the blink of an eye

(You break my heart)

[Taylor Swift & Gary Lightbody]

This is the last time I'm asking you, last time I'm asking you

Last time I'm asking you this

This is the last time I'm asking you, last time I'm asking you

Last time I'm asking you this

This is the last time I'm asking you, last time I'm asking you

Last time I'm asking you this

This is the last time I'm asking you, last time I'm asking you

Last time I'm asking you this


Holy Ground

[Verse 1]

I was reminiscing just the other day

While having coffee all alone and Lord, it took me away

Back to a first-glance feeling on New York time

Back when you fit my poems like a perfect rhyme

Took off faster than a green light, go

Hey, you skip the conversation when you already know

I left a note on the door with a joke we'd made

And that was the first day

[Chorus]

And darling, it was good never looking down

And right there where we stood was holy ground

[Verse 2]

Spinning like a girl in a brand new dress

We had this big wide city all to ourselves

We blocked the noise with the sound of 'I need you'

And for the first time I had something to lose

And I guess we fell apart in the usual way

And the story's got dust on every page

But sometimes I wonder how you think about it now

And I see your face in every crowd

[Chorus]

'Cause darling, it was good never looking down

And right there where we stood was holy ground

[Hook]

Tonight I'm gonna dance for all that we've been through

But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you

Tonight I'm gonna dance like you were in this room

But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you

[Chorus]

It was good never looking down

And right there where we stood was holy ground

[Hook]

Tonight I'm gonna dance for all that we've been through

But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you

Tonight I'm gonna dance like you were in this room

But I don't wanna dance if I'm not dancing with you


Sad Beautiful Tragic

[Verse 1]

Long handwritten note, deep in your pocket

Words, how little they mean, when you're a little too late

I stood right by the tracks, your face in a locket

Good girls, hopeful they'll be and long they will wait

[Chorus]

We had a beautiful magic love there

What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

[Verse 2]

In dreams, I meet you in warm conversation

We both wake in lonely beds, different cities

And time is taking its sweet time erasing you

And you've got your demons and darling they all look like me

[Chorus]

We had a beautiful magic love there

What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

[Bridge]

Distance, timing, breakdown, fighting

Silence, the train runs off its tracks

Kiss me, try to fix it, could you just try to listen?

Hang up, give up, and for the life of us we can't get back

[Chorus]

We had a beautiful magic love there

What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

We had a beautiful magic love there

What a sad beautiful tragic love affair

We had a beautiful magic love there

What a sad beautiful tragic love affair


The Lucky One

[Verse 1]

New to town with a made up name

In the angel city, chasing fortune and fame

And the camera flashes, make it look like a dream

You had it figured out since you were in school

Everybody loves pretty, everybody loves cool

So overnight you look like a sixties’ queen

[Bridge]

Another name goes up in lights, like diamonds in the sky

[Chorus]

And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one

Yeah, they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one

But can you tell me now, you’re the lucky one, oh, oh, oh

[Verse 2]

Now it’s big black cars, and Riviera views

And your lover in the foyer doesn’t even know you

And your secrets end up splashed on the news front page

And they tell you that you’re lucky

But you’re so confused

Cause you don’t feel pretty, you just feel used

And all the young things line up to take your place

[Bridge]

Another name goes up in lights

You wonder if you’ll make it out alive

[Chorus]

And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one

Yeah, they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one

But can you tell me now, you’re the lucky one, oh, oh, oh

[Verse 3]

It was a few years later, I showed up here

And they still tell the legend of how you disappeared

How you took the money and your dignity, and got the hell out

They say you bought a bunch of land somewhere

Chose a rose garden over Madison Square

And it took some time, but I understand it now

[Bridge]

‘Cause now my name is up in lights, but I think you got it right

[Chorus]

Let me tell you now, you’re the lucky one

Let me tell you now, you’re the lucky one

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

And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one

Yeah, they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one

And they’ll tell you now, you’re the lucky one, oh, oh, oh

Oh, whoa, oh, oh


Everything has Changed

[Verse 1: Taylor Swift]

All I knew this morning when I woke

Is I know something now, know something now I didn't before

And all I've seen since 18 hours ago is green eyes and freckles and your smile

In the back of my mind making me feel like

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift + Ed Sheeran]

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you, know you, know you

[Chorus: Taylor Swift + Ed Sheeran]

'Cause all I know is we said hello

And your eyes look like coming home

All I know is a simple name, everything has changed

All I know is you held the door

You'll be mine and I'll be yours

All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

[Verse 2: Ed Sheeran + Taylor Swift]

And all my walls stood tall painted blue

And I'll take them down

Take them down and open up the door for you

And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies

The beautiful kind, making up for lost time

Taking flight, making me feel like

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift + Ed Sheeran]

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you, know you, know you

[Chorus: Taylor Swift + Ed Sheeran]

'Cause all I know is we said hello

And your eyes look like coming home

All I know is a simple name, everything has changed

All I know is you held the door

You'll be mine and I'll be yours

All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

[Bridge: Taylor Swift + Ed Sheeran]

Come back and tell me why

I'm feeling like i've missed you all this time

And meet me there tonight

And let me know that it's not all in my mind

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift]

I just want to know you better

Know you better, know you better now

I just want to know you, know you, know you

[Chorus: Taylor Swift + Ed Sheeran]

'Cause all I know is we said hello

And your eyes look like coming home

All I know is a simple name, everything has changed

All I know is you held the door

You'll be mine and I'll be yours

All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

[Outro: Taylor Swift]

All I know is we said hello

So dust off your highest hopes

All I know is pouring rain

And everything has changed

All I know is a new found grace

All my days, I'll know your face

All I know since yesterday is everything has changed


Starlight

[Chorus]

I said, "Oh my, what a marvelous tune"

It was the best night, never would forget how we moved

The whole place was dressed to the nines

And we were dancing, dancing

Like we're made of starlight

Like we're made of starlight

[Verse 1]

I met Bobby on the boardwalk, summer of '45

Picked me up, late one night at the window

We were 17 and crazy, running wild, wild

Can't remember what song it was playing when we walked in

The night we snuck into a yacht club party

Pretending to be a duchess and a prince

[Chorus]

And I said, "Oh my, what a marvelous tune"

It was the best night, never would forget how we moved

The whole place was dressed to the nines

And we were dancing, dancing

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

[Verse 2]

He said, "Look at you worrying too much about things you can't change

You'll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way"

He was trying to skip rocks on the ocean saying to me

"Don't you see the starlight, starlight?

Don't you dream impossible things?"

[Chorus]

Like, "Oh my, what a marvelous tune"

It was the best night, never would forget how we moved

The whole place was dressed to the nines

And we were dancing, dancing

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

[Bridge]

Ooh, ooh, he's talking crazy

Ooh, ooh, dancing with me

Ooh, ooh, we could get married

Have ten kids and teach 'em how to dream

[Guitar Solo]

[Outro]

Oh my, what a marvelous tune

It was the best night, never would forget how we moved

The whole place was dressed to the nines

And we were dancing, dancing

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

Like we're made of starlight, starlight

Like we dream impossible dreams

Like starlight, starlight

Like we dream impossible dreams

Don't you see the starlight, starlight?

Don't you dream impossible things?


Begin Again

[Verse 1]

Took a deep breath in the mirror

He didn't like it when I wore high heels

But I do

Turn the lock and put my headphones on

He always said he didn't get this song but I do, I do

Walked in expecting you'd be late

But you got here early and you stand and wave

I walk to you

You pull my chair out and help me in

And you don't know how nice that is but I do

[Chorus]

And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid

I think it's strange that you think I'm funny 'cause he never did

I've been spending the last eight months

Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end

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

[Verse 2]

You said you never met one girl who

Had as many James Taylor records as you

But I do

We tell stories and you don't know why I'm coming off a little shy

But I do

[Chorus]

And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid

I think it's strange that you think I'm funny 'cause he never did

I've been spending the last eight months

Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end

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

[Bridge]

And we walked down the block, to my car

And I almost brought him up

But you start to talk about the movies

That your family watches every single Christmas

And I want to talk about that

And for the first time what's past is past

[Chorus]

'Cause you throw your head back laughing like a little kid

I think it's strange that you think I'm funny 'cause he never did

I've been spending the last eight months

Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end

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

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


The Moment I Knew

[Verse 1]

You should've been there

Should've burst through the door

With that 'baby I'm right here' smile

And it would've felt like

A million little shining stars had just aligned

And I would've been so happy

[Pre-Chorus]

Christmas lights glisten

I've got my eye on the door

Just waiting for you to walk in

But the time is ticking

People ask me how I've been

As I comb back through my memory

How you said you'd be here

You said you'd be here

[Chorus]

And it was like slow motion

Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick

With no one to impress

And they're all laughing

As I'm looking around the room

But there was one thing missing

And that was the moment I knew

[Verse 2]

And the hours pass by

Now I just wanna be alone

But your close friends always seem to know

When there's something really wrong

So they follow me down the hall

And there in the bathroom

I try not to fall apart

And the sinking feeling starts

As I say hopelessly

"He said he'd be here"

[Chorus]

And it was like slow motion

Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick

With no one to impress

And they're all laughing

And asking me about you

But there was one thing missing

And that was the moment I knew

[Bridge]

What do you say

When tears are streaming down your face

In front of everyone you know?

And what do you do when the one

Who means the most to you

Is the one who didn't show?

You should've been here

And I would've been so happy

[Chorus]

And it was like slow motion

Standing there in my party dress

In red lipstick

With no one to impress

And they're all standing around me singing

"Happy birthday to you"

But there was one thing missing

And that was the moment I knew

[Outro]

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

I knew

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

You call me later

And said, "I'm sorry I didn't make it"

And I said, "I'm sorry too"

And that was the moment I knew


Come Back… Be Here

[Verse 1]
You said it in a simple way
4 AM, the second day
How strange that I don't know you at all
Stumbled through the long goodbye
One last kiss, then catch your flight
Right when I was just about to fall

I told myself don't get attached
But in my mind I play it back
Spinning faster than the plane that took you

[Chorus]
And this is when the feeling sinks in
I don't wanna miss you like this
Come back be here, come back be here
I guess you're in New York today
I don't wanna need you this way
Come back be here, come back be here

[Verse 2]
The delicate beginning rush
The feeling you can know so much
Without knowing anything at all
And now that I can put this down
If I had known what I'd known now
I never would have played so nonchalant

Taxi cabs and busy streets
That never bring you back to me
I can't help but wish you took me with you

[Chorus 2]
And this is when the feeling sinks in
I don't wanna miss you like this
Come back be here, come back be here
I guess you're in London today
I don't wanna need you this way
Come back be here, come back be here

[Verse 3]
This is falling in love in the cruelest way
This is falling for you and you are worlds away

New York be here

But you're in London and I break down
Cause it's not fair that you're not around

[Chorus]

[Outro]
I don't wanna miss you like this
Come back be here
Come back be here


Girl At Home

[Intro]

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

[Verse 1]

I don't even know her

But I feel a responsibility to do what's upstanding and right

It's kinda like a code, yeah

And you've been getting closer and closer

And crossing so many lines

[Pre-Chorus]

And it would be a fine proposition

If I was a stupid girl

But honey I am no one's exception

This I have previously learned

[Chorus]

So don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

I see you turn off your phone

Now you've got me alone, and I say

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

[Verse 2]

I just want to make sure

You understand perfectly you're the kind of man who makes me sad

While she waits up, you chase down the newest thing

And take for granted what you have

[Pre-Chorus]

And it would be a fine proposition

If I was a stupid girl

And yeah, I might go with it

If I hadn't once been just like her

[Chorus]

So don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

I see you turn off your phone

Now you've got me alone, and I say

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

[Bridge]

Call a cab, lose my number

You're about to lose your girl

Call a cab, lose my number

Let's consider this lesson learned

[Chorus]

Want to see you pick up your phone

And tell her you're coming home

Don't look at me, you got a girl at home

And everybody knows that, everybody knows that

[Outro]

It would be a fine proposition

If I hadn't once been just like her


Welcome to New York

[Verse 1]

Walking through a crowd, the village is aglow

Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats under coats

Everybody here wanted something more

Searching for a sound we hadn't heard before

And it said

[Chorus]

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

It's a new soundtrack

I could dance to this beat (beat)

Forevermore

The lights are so bright

But they never blind me (me)

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

[Verse 2]

When we first dropped our bags on apartment floors

Took our broken hearts, put them in a drawer

Everybody here was someone else before

And you can want who you want

Boys and boys and girls and girls

[Chorus]

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

It's a new soundtrack

I could dance to this beat (beat)

Forevermore

The lights are so bright

But they never blind me (me)

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

[Bridge]

Like any great love, it keeps you guessing

Like any real love, it's ever-changing

Like any true love, it drives you crazy

But you know you wouldn't change anything, anything, anything

[Chorus]

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

It's a new soundtrack

I could dance to this beat (beat)

Forevermore

The lights are so bright

But they never blind me (me)

Welcome to New York!

It's been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York


Blank Space

[Verse 1]

Nice to meet you, where you been?

I could show you incredible things

Magic, madness, heaven, sin

Saw you there, and I thought

"Oh my God, look at that face

You look like my next mistake

Love's a game, wanna play?" Ayy

New money, suit and tie

I can read you like a magazine

Ain't it funny? Rumors fly

And I know you heard about me

So hey, let's be friends

I'm dyin' to see how this one ends

Grab your passport and my hand

I can make the bad guys good for a weekend

[Chorus]

So it's gonna be forever

Or it's gonna go down in flames

You can tell me when it's over, mm

If the high was worth the pain

Got a long list of ex-lovers

They'll tell you I'm insane

'Cause you know I love the players

And you love the game

'Cause we're young and we're reckless

We'll take this way too far

It'll leave you breathless, hmm

Or with a nasty scar

Got a long list of ex-lovers

They'll tell you I'm insane

But I've got a blank space, baby

And I'll write your name

[Verse 2]

Cherry lips, crystal skies

I could show you incredible things

Stolen kisses, pretty lies

You're the King, baby, I'm your Queen

Find out what you want

Be that girl for a month

Wait, the worst is yet to come, oh no

Screaming, crying, perfect storms

I can make all the tables turn

Rose garden filled with thorns

Keep you second guessin' like

"Oh my God, who is she?"

I get drunk on jealousy

But you'll come back each time you leave

'cause, darling, I'm a nightmare

Dressed like a daydream

[Chorus]

So it's gonna be forever

Or it's gonna go down in flames

You can tell me when it's over, mm

If the high was worth the pain

Got a long list of ex-lovers

They'll tell you I'm insane

'Cause you know I love the players

And you love the game

'Cause we're young and we're reckless

We'll take this way too far

It'll leave you breathless, hmm

Or with a nasty scar

Got a long list of ex-lovers

They'll tell you I'm insane

But I've got a blank space, baby

And I'll write your name

[Bridge]

Boys only want love if it's torture

Don't say I didn't, say I didn't, warn ya

Boys only want love if it's torture

Don't say I didn't, say I didn't, warn ya

[Chorus]

So it's gonna be forever

Or it's gonna go down in flames

You can tell me when it's over, mm

If the high was worth the pain

Got a long list of ex-lovers

They'll tell you I'm insane

'Cause you know I love the players

And you love the game

'Cause we're young and we're reckless

We'll take this way too far

It'll leave you breathless, hmm

Or with a nasty scar

Got a long list of ex-lovers

They'll tell you I'm insane

But I've got a blank space, baby

And I'll write your name


Style

[Verse 1]

Midnight

You come and pick me up, no headlights

Long drive

Could end in burning flames or paradise

Fade into view

Oh, It's been a while since I have even heard from you

(Heard from you)

And I should just tell you to leave cause I

Know exactly where it leads, but I

Watch us go round and round each time

[Chorus]

You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye

And I got that red lip classic thing that you like

And when we go crashing down, we come back every time

Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

You got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt

And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt

And when we go crashing down, we come back every time

Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[Verse 2]

So it goes

He can't keep his wild eyes on the road (mmm)

Takes me home

Lights are off, he's taking off his coat (mmm, yeah)

I say "I've heard

Oh, that you've been out and about with some other girl"

Some other girl

He says "What you heard is true, but I

Can't stop thinking 'bout you and I"

I said "I've been there too a few times"

[Chorus]

Cause you got that James Dean daydream look in your eye

And I got that red lip classic thing that you like

And when we go crashing down, we come back every time

Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

You got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt

And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt

And when we go crashing down, we come back every time

Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

[Bridge]

Take me home

Just take me home

Yeah, just take me home

(Out of style)

[Chorus]

Oh, you got that James Dean daydream look in your eye

And I got that red lip classic thing that you like

And when we go crashing down, we come back every time

Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style


Out of the Woods

[Verse 1]

Looking at it now

It all seems so simple

We were lying on your couch

I remember

You took a Polaroid of us

Then discovered (then discovered)

The rest of the world was black and white

But we were in screaming color

And I remember thinking…

[Chorus]

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

(Are we out of the woods?)

[Verse 2]

Looking at it now

Last December (last December)

We were built to fall apart

Then fall back together (back together)

Your necklace hanging from my neck

The night we couldn't quite forget

When we decided, we decided

To move the furniture so we could dance

Baby, like we stood a chance

Two paper airplanes flying, flying, flying

And I remember thinking…

[Chorus]

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

(Are we out of the woods?)

[Bridge]

Remember when you hit the brakes too soon?

Twenty stitches in a hospital room

When you started crying, baby, I did too

When the sun came up, I was looking at you

Remember when you couldn't take the heat?

I walked out and said I'm setting you free

But the monsters turned out to be just trees

When the sun came up, you were looking at me

You were looking at me, ooh

You were looking at me

(Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?)

(Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?)

I remember

(Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?)

(Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good)

Oh, I remember!

[Chorus]

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet?

Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods?

Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear yet?

Are we in the clear yet? In the clear yet? Good


All You Had to Do Was Stay

[Verse 1]

People like you always want back

The love they gave away

And people like me wanna believe you

When you say you've changed

The more I think about it now

The less I know

All I know is that you drove us

Off the road

[Chorus]

(Stay!) Hey

All you had to do was stay

Had me in the palm of your hand

Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in?

(Stay!) Hey

Now you say you want it back

Now that it's just too late

Well, could've been easy

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was stay

[Verse 2]

Here you are now calling me up

But I don't know what to say

I've been picking up the pieces

Of the mess you made

People like you always want back

The love they pushed aside

But people like me are gone forever

When you say goodbye

[Chorus]

(Stay!) Hey

All you had to do was stay

Had me in the palm of your hand

Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in?

(Stay!) Hey

Now you say you want it back

Now that it's just too late

Well, could've been easy

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay! stay! stay! stay! stay!)

[Bridge]

Let me remind you

This was what you wanted (Oh! Oh! Oh-oh-oh!)

You ended it

You were all I wanted (Oh! Oh! Oh-oh-oh!)

But not like this

Not like this... not like this...

Oh! All you had to do was!

[Chorus]

(Stay!) Hey

All you had to do was stay

Had me in the palm of your hand

Then why'd you want to go and lock me out when I let you in?

(Stay!) Hey

Now you say you want it back

Now that it's just too late

Well, could've been easy

All you had to do was

(Stay!) Hey

All you had to do was stay

Had me in the palm of your hand

Then why'd you have to go and lock me out when I let you in?

(Stay!) Hey

Now you say you want it back

Now that it's just too late (all you had to do was stay)

Well, could've been easy

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!) (ahh-ooh)

All you had to do was (stay!)

All you had to do was (stay!) (Oo-oo-whoa)

All you had to do was (stay!)


Shake it Off

[Verse 1]

I stay out too late

Got nothing in my brain

That's what people say, mmm, mmm

That's what people say, mmm, mmm

I go on too many dates

But I can't make them stay

At least that's what people say, mmm, mmm

That's what people say, mmm, mmm

[Pre-Chorus 1]

But I keep cruisin'

Can't stop, won't stop movin'

It's like I got this music in my mind

Saying it's gonna be alright

[Chorus]

'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

I shake it off, I 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

I shake it off, I shake it off

[Verse 2]

I never miss a beat

I'm lightning on my feet

And that's what they don’t see, mmm, mmm

That's what they don’t see, mmm, mmm

I'm dancing on my own (dancing on my own)

I make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go)

And that's what they don't know, mmm, mmm

That’s what they don’t know, mmm, mmm

[Pre-Chorus 2]

But I keep cruisin'

Can't stop, won't stop groovin'

It's like I got this music in my mind

Saying it's gonna be alright

[Chorus]

'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

I shake it off, I 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

[Post-Chorus]

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

I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

[Interlude]

Hey, hey, hey

Just think while you've been getting down and out about the liars

And dirty, dirty cheats of the world you could've been getting down to this sick beat

[Bridge]

My ex-man brought his new girlfriend

She's like, “Oh my God”, but I'm just gonna shake

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, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]

'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

Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break (mmhm)

And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake (fake n' fake n' fake)

Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

I shake it off, I shake it off

[Post-Chorus]

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

I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

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

I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off (yeah!)

Shake it off, I shake it off

I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off (you got to)

I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off

I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off


I Wish You Would

[Verse 1]

It's 2:00 AM, in your car

Windows down, you pass my street, the memories start

You say it's in the past

You drive straight ahead

You're thinking that I hate you now

Cause you still don't know what I never said

[Chorus]

I wish you would come back

Wish I never hung up the phone like I did, and I

Wish you knew that

I'd never forget you as long as I live, and I

Wish you were right here, right now

It's all good

I wish you would

[Verse 2]

It's 2:00 AM, in my room

Headlights pass the window pane

I think of you

We're a crooked love

In a straight line down

Makes you want to run and hide

Then it makes you turn right back around

[Chorus]

I wish you would come back

Wish I never hung up the phone like I did, and I

Wish you knew that

I'd never forget you as long as I live, and I

Wish you were right here, right now

It's all good

I wish you would

I wish we could go back

And remember what we were fighting for, and I

Wish you knew that

I miss you too much to be mad anymore, and I

Wish you were right here, right now

It's all good

I wish you would

[Bridge]

(I, I, I-I, I, I, I wish I, wish I)

(I, I, I-I, I, I, I wish I, wish I)

(I, I, I-I, I, I, I wish I, wish I) x7

You always knew how to push my buttons

You give me everything and nothing

This mad mad love makes you come running

Stand back where you stood

I wish you would, I wish you would

(I wish you would, I wish you would)

I wish you would, I wish you would

(I wish you would, I wish you would)

[Verse 3]

2:00 AM, here we are

See your face, hear my voice in the dark

We're a crooked love

In a straight line down

Makes you wanna run and hide

But it made us turn right back around

[Chorus]

I wish you would come back

Wish I never hung up the phone like I did, I

Wish you knew that

I'd never forget you as long as I live, and I

Wish you were right here, right now

It's all good

I wish you would

I wish you would come back

Wish I never hung up the phone like I did, I

Wish you knew that

I'd never forget you as long as I live, and I

Wish you were right here, right now

It's all good

I wish you would

I wish we could go back

And remember what we were fighting for, and I

Wish you knew that

I miss you too much to be mad anymore, and I

Wish you were right here, right now

It's all good

I wish you would

[Outro]

(I, I, I-I, I, I, I wish I, wish I) x8

You always knew how to push my buttons

You give me everything and nothing

This mad mad love makes you come running

Stand back where you stood

I wish you would, I wish you would

(I wish you would, I wish you would)

I wish you would, I wish you would

(I wish you would, I wish you would, I wish you would)

(I wish you would)

I wish you would


Bad Blood

[Chorus]

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood

You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

Now we've got problems

And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut

And baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 1]

Did you have to do this?

I was thinking that you could be trusted

Did you have to ruin what was shiny?

Now it's all rusted

Did you have to hit me where I'm weak?

Baby, I couldn't breathe

And rub it in so deep

Salt in the wound like you're laughing right at me

[Pre-Chorus]

Oh, it's so sad to

Think about the good times

You and I

[Chorus]

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood

You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

Now we've got problems

And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut

And baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Verse 2]

Did you think we'd be fine?

Still got scars in my back from your knives

So don't think it's in the past

These kind of wounds they last and they last

Now, did you think it all through?

All these things will catch up to you

And time can heal, but this won't

So if you come in my way

Just don't

[Pre-Chorus]

Oh, it's so sad to

Think about the good times

You and I

[Chorus]

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood

You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

Now we've got problems

And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut

And baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Bridge]

Band-aids don't fix bullet holes

You say sorry just for show

You live like that, you live with ghosts

Band-aids don't fix bullet holes

You say sorry just for show

If you live like that, you live with ghosts

If you love like that, blood runs cold!

[Chorus]

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood

You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

Now we've got problems

And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut

And baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

[Chorus]

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood

You know it used to be mad love

So take a look what you've done

’Cause baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!

Now we've got problems

And I don't think we can solve 'em

You made a really deep cut

And baby, now we've got bad blood, hey!


Wildest Dreams

[Verse 1]

He said, "Let's get out of this town

Drive out of this city, away from the crowds"

I thought, "Heaven can't help me now"

Nothing lasts forever, but this is gonna take me down

[Pre-Chorus 1]

He's so tall and handsome as hell

He's so bad, but he does it so well

I can see the end as it begins

My one condition is

[Chorus]

Say you'll remember me

Standing in a nice dress

Staring at the sunset, babe

Red lips and rosy cheeks

Say you'll see me again

Even if it's just in your

Wildest dreams, ah-aah haa

Wildest dreams, ah-aah haa

[Verse 2]

I said, "No one has to know what we do"

His hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room

And his voice is a familiar sound

Nothing lasts forever, but this is gettin' good now

[Pre-Chorus 2]

He's so tall and handsome as hell

He's so bad, but he does it so well

And when we've had our very last kiss

My last request, it is

[Chorus]

Say you'll remember me

Standing in a nice dress

Staring at the sunset, babe

Red lips and rosy cheeks

Say you'll see me again

Even if it's just in your

Wildest dreams, ah-aah haa (ah-aah haa)

Wildest dreams, ah-aah haa

[Bridge]

You'll see me in hindsight, tangled up with you all night

Burnin' it down

Someday when you leave me, I'd bet these memories

Follow you around

You'll see me in hindsight, tangled up with you all night

Burning (burning) it (it) down (down)

Someday when you leave me, I'll bet these memories

Follow (follow) you (you) around (around)

(Follow you around)

[Breakdown]

Say you'll remember me

Standing in a nice dress

Staring at the sunset, babe

Red lips and rosy cheeks

Say you'll see me again

Even if it's just pretend

[Chorus]

Say you'll remember me

Standing in a nice dress

Staring at the sunset, babe

Red lips and rosy cheeks

Say you'll see me again

Even if it's just in your (pretend, just pretend)

Wildest dreams, ah-aah haa (ah-aah-aah-aah-aah-haa)

In your wildest dreams, ah-aah haa

Even if it's just in your

Wildest dreams, ah-aah haa

In your wildest dreams, ah-aah haa


How You Get The Girl

[Intro]

Uh, uh, uh

Uh, uh, uh

Uh-uh, uh-uh

[Verse 1]

Stand there like a ghost

Shaking from the rain, rain

She'll open up the door and say, "Are you insane?"

Say it's been a long six months

And you were too afraid to tell her what you want, want

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl

[Pre-Chorus]

And then you say, I want you for worse or for better

I would wait forever and ever

Broke your heart, I'll put it back together

I would wait forever and ever

[Chorus]

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl (oh-oh, oh-oh)

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl

[Verse 2]

Remind her how it used to be, be, yeah-yeah

With pictures in frames of kisses on cheeks, cheeks

Tell her how you must have lost your mind, ooh-ooh

When you left her all alone and never told her why, why

And that's how it works

That's how you lost the girl

And now you say—

[Pre-Chorus]

I want you for worse or for better

I would wait forever and ever (ever and ever)

Broke your heart, I'll put it back together

I would wait forever and ever

[Chorus]

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl (oh-oh, oh-oh)

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl

Yeah, yeah

[Post-Chorus]

And you know-oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

That I don't want you to go, oh, oh

[Bridge]

Remind me how it used to be

Pictures in frames of kisses on cheeks

And say you want me, yeah-yeah

And then you say—

[Pre-Chorus]

I want you for worse or for better (worse of for better)

I would wait forever and ever (and ever)

Broke your heart, I'll put it back together

I would wait forever and ever (I want you forever and ever)

[Chorus]

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl (that's how it works!)

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl (get the girl! That's how it works!)

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl

And that's how it works

That's how you get the girl, girl

[Outro]

That's how it works, that's how you got the girl


This Love

[Verse 1]

Clear blue water, high tides came and brought you in

And I could go on and on, on and on

And I will

Skies grew darker, currents swept you out again

And you are just gone and gone, gone and gone

In silent screams and wildest dreams

I never dreamed of this

[Chorus]

This love is good, this love is bad

This love is alive back from the dead

These hands had to let it go free

And this love came back to me

[Verse 2]

Tossing, turning, struggled through the night with someone new

And I could go on and on, on and on

Lantern, burning, flickered in my mind for only you

But you were still gone, gone, gone

Been losing grip, sinking ships

You showed up just in time

[Chorus]

This love is good, this love is bad

This love is alive back from the dead

These hands had to let it go free

And this love came back to me

[Post-Chorus]

This love left a permanent mark

This love is glowing in the dark

These hands had to let it go free

And this love came back to me

[Bridge]

Your kiss, my cheek, I watched you leave

Your smile, my ghost, I fell to my knees

When you're young you just run

But you come back to what you need

[Chorus]

This love is good, this love is bad

This love is alive back from the dead

These hands had to let it go free

And this love came back to me

[Post-Chorus]

This love left a permanent mark

This love is glowing in the dark

These hands had to let it go free

And this love came back to me


I Know Places

[Verse 1]

You stand with your hand on my waistline

It's a scene and we're out here in plain sight

I can hear them whisper as we pass by

It's a bad sign (bad sign)

Something happens when everybody finds out

See the vultures circling dark clouds

Love's a fragile little flame

It could burn out, it could burn out

[Pre-Chorus 1]

'Cause they got the cages, they got the boxes

And guns

They are the hunters, we are the foxes

And we run

[Chorus]

Baby, I know places we won't be found

And they'll be chasing their tails trying to track us down

'Cause I, I know places we can hide

I know places, I know places

[Verse 2]

Lights flash and we'll run for the fences

Let them say what they want, we won't hear it

Loose lips sink ships all the damn time

Not this time

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Just grab my hand and don't ever drop it

My love

They are the hunters, we are the foxes

And we run

[Chorus]

Baby, I know places we won't be found

And they'll be chasing their tails trying to track us down

'Cause I, I know places we can hide

I know places, I know places

[Bridge]

They are the hunters, we are the foxes

And we run

Just grab my hand and don't ever drop it

My love

[Chorus]

Baby, I know places we won't be found

And they'll be chasing their tails trying to track us down

'Cause I, I know places we can hide

I know places, I know places

[Outro]

They take their shots, we're bulletproof

(I know places)

And you know for me, it's always you

(I know places)

In the dead of night, your eyes so green

(I know places)

And I know for you, it's always me

(I know places)


Clean

[Verse 1]

The drought was the very worst

When the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst

It was months and months of back-and-forth

You're still all over me like a wine-stained dress I can't wear anymore

[Pre-Chorus]

Hung my head as I lost the war

And the sky turned black like a perfect storm

[Chorus]

Rain came pouring down

When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe

And by morning, gone was any trace of you

I think I am finally clean

[Verse 2]

There was nothing left to do

When the butterflies turned to dust, they covered my whole room

So I punched a hole in the roof

Let the flood carry away all my pictures of you

[Pre-Chorus]

The water filled my lungs, I screamed so loud

But no one heard a thing

[Chorus]

Rain came pouring down

When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe

And by morning, gone was any trace of you

I think I am finally clean

Rain came pouring down

When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe

And by morning, gone was any trace of you

And I think I am finally clean

[Bridge]

Ten months sober, I must admit

Just because you're clean don't mean you don't miss it

Ten months older, I won't give in

Now that I'm clean, I'm never gonna risk it

The drought was the very worst

When the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst

[Chorus]

Rain came pouring down

When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe

And by morning, gone was any trace of you

I think I am finally clean


Wonderland

[Verse 1]

Flashing lights and we

Took a wrong turn and we

Fell down a rabbit hole

You held on tight to me

Cause nothing's as it seems and spinning out of control

[Pre-Chorus 1]

Didn't they tell us don't rush into things?

Didn't you flash your green eyes at me?

Haven't you heard what becomes of curious minds?

Didn't it all seem new and exciting?

I felt your arms twistin' round me

I should have slept with one eye open at night

[Chorus]

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it

And we pretended it could last forever (ey, ey)

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it

And life was never worse but never better (ey, ey)

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

[Verse 2]

So we went on our way, too in love to think straight

All alone or so it seemed

But there was strangers watching

And whispers turned to talking

And talking turned to screams, oh

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Didn't they tell us don't rush into things

Didn't you flash your green eyes at me

Didn't you calm my fears with a Cheshire cat smile

Didn't it all feel new and exciting

I felt your arms twisting round me

It’s all fun and games till somebody loses their mind

But darlin'

[Chorus]

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it

And we pretended it could last forever (ey, ey)

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it

And life was never worse but never better (ey, ey)

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

In Wonderland

[Breakdown]

I reached for you but you were gone

I knew I had to go back home

You searched the world for something else

To make you feel like what we had

And in the end in Wonderland

We both went mad

Oh!

[Outro]

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it

We pretended it could last forever, last forever (ey, ey)

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it (got lost in it)

And life was never worse but never better, never better (ey, ey)

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it (in Wonderland)

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

We pretended it could last forever (in Wonderland)

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it (in Wonderland)

(Ey, ey, ey, ey, ey)

And life was never worse but never better

In Wonderland


You Are In Love

[Verse 1]

One look, dark room, meant just for you

Time moved too fast, you play it back

Buttons on a coat, light hearted joke

No proof, not much, but you saw enough

Small talk, he drives, coffee at midnight

The light reflects the chain on your neck

He says, "Look up" and your shoulders brush

No proof, one touch, you felt enough

[Chorus]

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you

You can feel it on the way home, way home, you

You can see it with the lights out, lights out

You are in love, true love

You are in love

[Verse 2]

Morning, his place, burnt toast, Sunday

You keep his shirt, he keeps his word

And for once you let go of your fears and your ghosts

One step, not much, but it said enough

You kiss on sidewalks, you fight and you talk

One night he wakes, strange look on his face

Pauses, then says "You're my best friend."

And you knew what it was, he is in love

[Chorus]

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you

You can feel it on the way home, way home, you

You can see it with the lights out, lights out

You are in love, true love

[Breakdown]

And so it goes...

You two are dancing in the snowglobe round and round

And he keeps a picture of you in his office downtown

And you understand now why they lost their minds and fought the wars

And why I spent my whole life trying to put it into words

[Pre-Chorus]

'Cause you can hear it in the silence

You can feel it on the way home

You can see it with the lights out

You are in love, true love

You are in love!

[Chorus]

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you

You can feel it on the way home, way home, you

You can see it with the lights out, lights out

You are in love, true love

You are in love

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you

You can feel it on the way home, way home, you

You can see it with the lights out, lights out

You are in love, true love

You are in love


New Romantics

[Verse 1]

We're all bored, we're all so tired of everything

We wait for trains that just aren't coming

We show off our different scarlet letters

Trust me, mine is better

We're so young, but we're on the road to ruin

We play dumb but we know exactly what we're doing

We cry tears of mascara in the bathroom

Honey, life is just a classroom

[Chorus]

'Cause baby I could build a castle

Out of all the bricks they threw at me

And every day is like a battle

But every night with us is like a dream

Baby we're the new romantics

Come on, come along with me

Heartbreak is the national anthem

We sing it proudly

We're too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet

Baby we're the new romantics

The best people in life are free

[Verse 2]

We're all here, the lights and noise are blinding

We hang back it's all in the timing

It's poker, you can't see it in my face

But I'm about to play my Ace

We need love but all we want is danger

We team up then switch sides like a record changer

The rumors are terrible and cruel

But honey most of them are true

[Chorus]

'Cause baby I could build a castle

Out of all the bricks they threw at me

And every day is like a battle

But every night with us is like a dream

Baby we're the new romantics

Come on, come along with me

Heartbreak is the national anthem

We sing it proudly

We're too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet

Baby we're the new romantics

The best people in life are free

[Breakdown]

Please take my hand and

Please take me dancing and

Please leave me stranded

It's so romantic, it's so romantic

[Chorus]

'Cause baby I could build a castle

Out of all the bricks they threw at me

And every day is like a battle

But every night with us is like a dream

'Cause baby I could build a castle

Out of all the bricks they threw at me

And every day is like a battle

But every night with us is like a dream

Baby we're the new romantics

Come on, come along with me

Heartbreak is the national anthem

We sing it proudly

We're too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet

Baby we're the new romantics

The best people in life are free


...Ready For It?

[Verse 1]

Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him

Wondered how many girls he had loved and left haunted

But if he's a ghost, then I can be a phantom

Holdin' him for ransom, some

Some boys are tryin' too hard, he don't try at all though

Younger than my exes, but he act like such a man, so

I see nothing better, I keep him forever

Like a vendetta-ta

[Pre-Chorus]

I, I, I see how this is gon' go

Touch me and you'll never be alone

I-Island breeze and lights down low

No one has to know

[Chorus]

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

You should see the things we do, baby

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

I know I'm gonna be with you

So I take my time

Are you ready for it?

[Verse 2]

Knew I was a robber first time that he saw me

Stealing hearts and running off and never sayin' sorry

But if I'm a thief, then he can join the heist, and

We'll move to an island, and

And he can be my jailer, Burton to this Taylor

Every love I've known in comparison is a failure

I forget their names now, I'm so very tame now

Never be the same now, now

[Pre-Chorus]

I, I, I see how this is gon' go

Touch me and you'll never be alone

I-Island breeze and lights down low

No one has to know (no one has to know)

[Chorus]

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

You should see the things we do, baby

In the middle of the night in my dreams

I know I'm gonna be with you

So I take my time

Are you ready for it?

Oh, are you ready for it?

[Post-Chorus]

Baby, let the games begin

Let the games begin

Let the games begin

Baby, let the games begin

Let the games begin

Let the games begin

[Pre-Chorus]

I, I, I see how this is gon' go

Touch me and you'll never be alone

I-Island breeze and lights down low

No one has to know

[Chorus]

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

You should see the things we do, baby

In the middle of the night, in my dreams

I know I'm gonna be with you

So I take my time

In the middle of the night

[Post-Chorus]

Baby, let the games begin

Let the games begin

Let the games begin

Are you ready for it?

Baby, let the games begin

Let the games begin

Let the games begin

Are you ready for it?


End Game

[Chorus: Taylor Swift & Future]

I wanna be your end game

I wanna be your first string

I wanna be your A-Team (whoa, whoa, whoa)

I wanna be your end game, end game

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Future]

Big reputation, big reputation

Ooh, you and me, we got big reputations, ah

And you heard about me, ooh

I got some big enemies (yeah)

Big reputation, big reputation

Ooh, you and me would be a big conversation, ah (git, git)

And I heard about you, ooh (yeah)

You like the bad ones, too

[Verse 1: Future]

You so dope, don't overdose

I’m so stoked, I need a toast

We do the most, I'm in the Ghost like I'm whippin’ a boat

I got a reputation, girl that don't precede me (yeah)

I'm one call away whenever you need me (yeah)

I'm in a G5 (yeah), come to the A-Side (yeah)

I got a bad boy persona, that's what they like (what they like)

You love it, I love it, too 'cause you my type (you my type)

You hold me down, and I protect you with my life

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Future]

I don't wanna touch you, I don't wanna be

Just another ex-love, you don’t wanna see

I don’t wanna miss you (I don't wanna miss you)

Like the other girls do

I don’t wanna hurt you, I just wanna be

Drinking on a beach with you all over me

I know what they all say (I know what they all say)

But I ain't tryna play

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]

I wanna be your end game (end game)

I wanna be your first string (first string)

I wanna be your A-Team (A-Team)

I wanna be your end game, end game

[Verse 2: Ed Sheeran]

Knew her when I was young

Reconnected when we were little bit older, both sprung

I got issues and chips on both of my shoulders

Reputation precedes me, in rumors, I'm knee-deep

The truth is, it's easier to ignore it, believe me

Even when we’d argue, we'd not do it for long

And you understand the good and bad end up in the song

For all your beautiful traits, and the way you do it with ease

For all my flaws, paranoia, and insecurities

I've made mistakes and made some choices, that's hard to deny

After the storm, something was born on the 4th of July

I've passed days without fun, this end game is the one

With four words on the tip of my tongue, I'll never say it

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift]

I don't wanna touch you, I don't wanna be

Just another ex-love you don't wanna see

I don't wanna miss you (I don't wanna miss you)

Like the other girls do

I don't wanna hurt you, I just wanna be

Drinking on a beach with you all over me

I know what they all say, yeah

But I ain't tryna play

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]

I wanna be your end game (end game)

I wanna be your first string (wanna be your first string)

I wanna be your A-Team (A-Team)

I wanna be your end game, end game

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift & Future]

Big reputation, big reputation

Ooh, you and me, we got big reputations, ah

And you heard about me, ooh

I got some big enemies

Hey, big reputation, big reputation

Ooh, you and me would be a big conversation, ah

And I heard about you, ooh

You like the bad ones, too

[Verse 3: Taylor Swift]

I hit you like bang, we tried to forget it, but we just couldn't

And I bury hatchets, but I keep maps of where I put 'em

Reputation precedes me, they told you I'm crazy

I swear I don't love the drama, it loves me

And I can't let you go, your hand prints on my soul

It's like your eyes are liquor, it's like your body is gold

You've been calling my bluff on all my usual tricks

So here's the truth from my red lips

[Chorus: Taylor Swift, Future, & Ed Sheeran]

I wanna be your end game (end game)

I wanna be your first string (me and you, first string)

I wanna be your A-Team (be your A-Team now, A-Team)

I wanna be your end game, end game

I wanna be your end game (oh, I do)

I wanna be your first string (first string)

I wanna be your A-Team (A-Team)

I wanna be your end game, end game


I Did Something Bad

[Verse 1]

I never trust a narcissist, but they love me

So I play 'em like a violin

And I make it look oh-so-easy

'Cause for every lie I tell them, they tell me three

This is how the world works

Now all he thinks about is me

[Pre-Chorus 1]

I can feel the flames on my skin

Crimson red paint on my lips

If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing

I don't regret it one bit, 'cause he had it coming

[Chorus]

They say I did something bad

Then why's it feel so good?

They say I did something bad

But why's it feel so good?

Most fun I ever had

And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could

It just felt so good, good

[Verse 2]

I never trust a playboy, but they love me

So I fly 'em all around the world

And I let them think they saved me

They never see it comin', what I do next

This is how the world works

You gotta leave before you get left

[Pre-Chorus 2]

I can feel the flames on my skin

He says, "Don't throw away a good thing"

But if he drops my name, then I owe him nothin'

And if he spends my change, then he had it comin'

[Chorus]

They say I did something bad

Then why's it feel so good?

They say I did something bad

But why's it feel so good?

Most fun I ever had

And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could

It just felt so good, good

It just felt so good

[Bridge]

They're burning all the witches even if you aren't one

They got their pitchforks and proof, their receipts and reasons

They're burning all the witches even if you aren't one

So light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)

Light me up, go ahead and light me up (light me up)

Light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)

Light me up (light me up), light me up

[Chorus]

They say I did something bad

Then why's it feel so good?

They say I did something bad

But why's it feel so good?

Most fun I ever had

And I'd do it over and over and over again if I could

It just felt so good, good

[Outro]

Oh, you say I did something bad

(You say I did something bad?)

Why's it feel so good, good?

So bad, why's it feel so good?

Why's it feel, why's it feel so good? (bad)

It just felt so good, good


Don’t Blame Me

[Chorus]
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

[Verse 1]
I've been breakin' hearts a long time
And toyin' with them older guys
Just playthings for me to use
Something happened for the first time
In the darkest little paradise
Shakin', pacin', I just need you

[Pre-Chorus]
For you, I would cross the line
I would waste my time
I would lose my mind
They say, "She's gone too far this time"

[Chorus]
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

[Verse 2]
My name is whatever you decide
And I'm just gonna call you mine
I'm insane, but I'm your baby (your baby)
Echoes (echoes) of your name inside my mind
Halo, hiding my obsession
I once was poison ivy, but now I'm your daisy

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And baby, for you, I would fall from grace
Just to touch your face
If you walk away
I'd beg you on my knees to stay

[Chorus]
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right
Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life

[Bridge]
I get so high, oh!
Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me
You're lovin' me
Trip of my life, oh!
Every time you're, every time you're touchin' me
You're touchin' me
Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me
Oh, Lord, save me
My drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life
(Usin' for the rest of my life, oh!)

[Chorus]
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right (doin' it right, no!)
Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life, oh
Don't blame me, love made me crazy
If it doesn't, you ain't doin' it right (you ain't doin' it...)
Oh, Lord, save me, my drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life (I'll be usin', I'll be usin')

[Outro]
I get so high, oh!
Every time you're, every time you're lovin' me
You're lovin' me
Oh, Lord, save me
My drug is my baby
I'll be usin' for the rest of my life


Delicate

[Intro]

This ain't for the best

My reputation's never been worse, so

You must like me for me…

We can't make

Any promises now, can we, babe?

But you can make me a drink

[Verse 1]

Dive bar on the East Side, where you at?

Phone lights up my nightstand in the black

Come here, you can meet me in the back

Dark jeans and your Nikes, look at you

Oh damn, never seen that color blue

Just think of the fun things we could do

'Cause I like you

[Pre-Chorus]

This ain't for the best

My reputation's never been worse, so

You must like me for me…

Yeah, I want you

We can't make

Any promises now, can we, babe?

But you can make me a drink

[Chorus]

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it chill that you're in my head?

'Cause I know that it's delicate (delicate)

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it too soon to do this yet?

'Cause I know that it's delicate

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

Isn't it... delicate?

[Verse 2]

Third floor on the West Side, me and you

Handsome, you're a mansion with a view

Do the girls back home touch you like I do?

Long night, with your hands up in my hair

Echoes of your footsteps on the stairs

Stay here, honey, I don't wanna share

'Cause I like you

[Pre-Chorus]

This ain't for the best

My reputation's never been worse, so

You must like me for me…

Yeah, I want you...

We can't make

Any promises now, can we, babe?

But you can make me a drink

[Chorus]

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it chill that you're in my head?

'Cause I know that it's delicate (delicate)

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it too soon to do this yet?

'Cause I know that it's delicate

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

Isn't it delicate?

[Bridge]

Sometimes I wonder when you sleep

Are you ever dreaming of me?

Sometimes when I look into your eyes

I pretend you're mine, all the damn time

'Cause I like you

[Chorus]

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it chill that you're in my head?

'Cause I know that it's delicate (delicate)

(Yeah, I want you)

Is it cool that I said all that?

Is it too soon to do this yet?

'Cause I know that it's delicate (delicate)

'Cause I like you

Is it cool that I said all that?

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

Is it chill that you're in my head?

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

'Cause I know that it's delicate

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

(Yeah, I want you)

Is it cool that I said all that?

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

Is it too soon to do this yet?

Isn't it? Isn't it? Isn't it?

'Cause I know that it's delicate

Isn't it delicate?


Look What You Made Me Do

[Verse 1]

I don't like your little games

Don't like your tilted stage

The role you made me play

Of the fool, no, I don't like you

I don't like your perfect crime

How you laugh when you lie

You said the gun was mine

Isn't cool, no, I don't like you (oh)

[Pre-Chorus]

But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time

I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined

I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

[Chorus]

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me—

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

[Verse 2]

I don't like your kingdom keys

They once belonged to me

You asked me for a place to sleep

Locked me out and threw a feast (what?)

The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama

But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma

And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure

Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours

[Pre-Chorus]

But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time

I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined

I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

[Chorus]

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me—

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

[Bridge]

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

(Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me—

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me—)

"I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now

"Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead!" (Oh)

[Chorus]

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me—

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me—

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do


So It Goes…

[Verse 1]

See you in the dark

All eyes on you, my magician

All eyes on us

You make everyone disappear, and

Cut me into pieces

Gold cage, hostage to my feelings

Back against the wall

Trippin', trip-trippin' when you're gone

[Pre-Chorus]

'Cause we break down a little

But when you get me alone, it's so simple

'Cause baby, I know what you know

We can feel it

[Chorus]

And all our pieces fall

Right into place

Get caught up in a moment

Lipstick on your face

So it goes…

I'm yours to keep

And I'm yours to lose

You know I'm not a bad girl, but I

Do bad things with you

So it goes…

[Verse 2]

Met you in a bar

All eyes on me, your illusionist

All eyes on us

I make all your grey days clear

And wear you like a necklace

I'm so chill, but you make me jealous

But I got your heart

Skippin', skip-skippin' when I'm gone

[Pre-Chorus]

'Cause we break down a little

But when I get you alone, it's so simple

'Cause baby, I know what you know

We can feel it

[Chorus]

And all our pieces fall

Right into place

Get caught up in a moment

Lipstick on your face

So it goes…

I'm yours to keep

And I'm yours to lose

You know I'm not a bad girl, but I

Do bad things with you

So it goes…

[Refrain]

Come here, dressed in black now

So, so, so it goes

Scratches down your back now

So, so, so it goes

[Bridge]

You did a number on me

But, honestly, baby, who's counting?

I did a number on you

But, honestly, baby, who's counting?

You did a number on me

But, honestly, baby, who's counting?

Who's counting?

(1, 2, 3)

[Chorus]

And all our pieces fall (pieces fall)

Right into place

Get caught up in a moment (caught up, caught up)

Lipstick on your face

So it goes (goes)…

I'm yours to keep (oh)

And I'm yours to lose (baby)

You know I'm not a bad girl, but I

Do bad things with you

So it goes…

[Refrain]

Come here, dressed in black now

So, so, so it goes

Scratches down your back now

So, so, so it goes

Come here, dressed in black now

So, so, so it goes

Scratches down your back now

So, so, so it goes


Gorgeous

[Intro]

Gorgeous

[Verse 1]

You should take it as a compliment

That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk

You should think about the consequence

Of your magnetic field being a little too strong

And I got a boyfriend, he's older than us

He's in the club doing I don't know what

You're so cool, it makes me hate you so much

(I hate you so much)

[Pre-Chorus 1]

Whiskey on ice, Sunset and Vine

You've ruined my life by not being mine

[Chorus]

You're so gorgeous

I can't say anything to your face

'Cause look at your face

And I'm so furious

At you for making me feel this way

But what can I say?

You're gorgeous

[Verse 2]

You should take it as a compliment

That I'm talking to everyone here but you

And you should think about the consequence

Of you touching my hand in a darkened room

If you've got a girlfriend, I'm jealous of her

But if you're single that's honestly worse

'Cause you're so gorgeous it actually hurts

(Honey, it hurts)

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Ocean blue eyes looking in mine

I feel like I might sink and drown and die

[Chorus]

You're so gorgeous

I can't say anything to your face

'Cause look at your face

And I'm so furious

At you for making me feel this way

But what can I say?

You're gorgeous

[Bridge]

You make me so happy it turns back to sad

There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have

And you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad

You make me so happy it turns back to sad, yeah

There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have

Guess I'll just stumble on home to my cats

Alone

Unless you wanna come along

[Chorus]

You're so gorgeous

I can't say anything to your face

'Cause look at your face

And I'm so furious

At you for making me feel this way

But what can I say?

You're gorgeous

[Outro]

You make me so happy it turns back to sad

There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have

And you are so gorgeous it makes me so mad

You're gorgeous

You make me so happy it turns back to sad

There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have

You are so gorgeous it makes me so mad

You're gorgeous


Getaway Car

[Intro]

No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[Verse 1]

It was the best of times, the worst of crimes

I struck a match and blew your mind

But I didn't mean it

And you didn’t see it

The ties were black, the lies were white

In shades of gray in candlelight

I wanted to leave him

I needed a reason

[Pre-Chorus]

X marks the spot where we fell apart

He poisoned the well, I was lyin' to myself

I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed

We never had a shotgun shot in the dark

(Oh!)

[Chorus]

You were drivin' the getaway car

We were flyin’, but we never get far

Don't pretend it's such a mystery

Think about the place where you first met me

Ridin' in a getaway car

There were sirens in the beat of your heart

I shoulda known I'd be the first to leave

Think about the place where you first met me

In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh

No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh

No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[Verse 2]

It was the great escape, the prison break

The light of freedom on my face

But you weren't thinkin'

And I was just drinkin'

Well, he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, "Go, go, go!"

But with three of us, honey, it's a sideshow

And a circus ain’t a love story

And now we're both sorry (we're both sorry)

[Pre-Chorus]

X marks the spot where we fell apart

He poisoned the well, every man for himself

I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed

It hit you like a shotgun shot to the heart

(Oh!)

[Chorus]

You were drivin' the getaway car

We were flyin’, but we'd never get far

Don't pretend it's such a mystery

Think about the place where you first met me

Ridin' in a getaway car

There were sirens in the beat of your heart

Shoulda' known I'd be the first to leave

Think about the place where you first met me

In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh

No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh

No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[Bridge]

We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde (oh-oh)

Until I switched to the other side

To the other si-i-i-i-ide

It's no surprise I turned you in (oh-oh)

'Cause us traitors never win

I'm in a getaway car

I left you in a motel bar

Put the money in a bag and I stole the keys

That was the last time you ever saw me

(Oh!)

[Chorus]

Drivin' the getaway car

We were flyin', but we never get far (don't pretend)

Don't pretend it's such a mystery

Think about the place where you first met me

Ridin' in a getaway car

There were sirens in the beat of your heart (shoulda' known)

Shoulda' known I'd be the first to leave

Think about the place where you first met me

In a getaway car, oh-oh-oh

No, they never get far, oh-oh-ahh

No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

[Outro]

I was ridin' in a getaway car

I was cryin' in a getaway car

I was dyin' in a getaway car

Said goodbye in a getaway car

Ridin' in a getaway car

I was cryin' in a getaway car

I was dyin' in a getaway car

Said goodbye in a getaway car


King of My Heart

[Verse 1]

I'm perfectly fine, I live on my own

I made up my mind, I'm better off bein' alone

We met a few weeks ago

Now you try on callin' me baby, like tryin' on clothes

[Pre-Chorus]

Salute to me, I'm your American Queen

And you move to me like I'm a Motown beat

And we rule the kingdom inside my room

'Cause all the boys and their expensive cars

With their Range Rovers and their Jaguars

Never took me quite where you do

[Chorus]

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for

King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go

King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

[Post-Chorus]

And all at once, I've been waiting, waiting

Ooh whoa, ooh whoa

And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting, waiting

Body and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once

[Verse 2]

Late in the night, the city's asleep

Your love is a secret I'm hoping, dreaming, dying to keep

Change my priorities

The taste of your lips is my idea of luxury

[Pre-Chorus]

Salute to me, I'm your American Queen

And you move to me like I'm a Motown beat

And we rule the kingdom inside my room

(Inside my room, oh)

'Cause all the boys and their expensive cars

With their Range Rovers and their Jaguars

Never took me quite where you do

[Chorus]

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for

King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go

King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

[Post-Chorus]

And all at once, I've been waiting, waiting

Ooh whoa, ooh whoa

And all at once, you are the one, I have been waiting (waiting), waiting (waiting)

Body and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once

[Bridge]

Is this the end of all the endings?

My broken bones are mending

With all these nights we're spending

Up on the roof with a school girl crush

Drinking beer out of plastic cups

Say you fancy me, not fancy stuff

Baby, all at once, this is enough

[Chorus]

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for

King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for

King of my heart, body, and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once, you're all I want, I'll never let you go

King of my heart (my heart), body, and soul (my soul), ooh whoa

[Post-Chorus]

And all at once, I've been waiting, waiting

Ooh whoa, ooh whoa (ooh whoa)

And all at once, 'cause you're the one I have been waiting, waiting

Body and soul, ooh whoa

And all at once


Dancing With Our Hands Tied

[Verse 1]

I, I loved you in secret

First sight, yeah, we love without reason

Oh, twenty-five years old

Oh, how were you to know? And

My, my love had been frozen

Deep blue, but you painted me golden

Oh, and you held me close

Oh, how was I to know? I–

[Pre-Chorus]

Could've spent forever with your hands in my pockets

Picture of your face in an invisible locket

You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it

I had a bad feeling

And darling, you had turned my bed into a sacred oasis

People started talking, putting us through our paces

I knew there was no one in the world who could take it

I had a bad feeling

[Chorus]

But we were dancing

Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied

Yeah, we were dancing

Like it was the first time, first time

Yeah, we were dancing

Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied

Yeah, we were dancing

And I had a bad feeling

But we were dancing

[Verse 2]

I, I loved you in spite of

Deep fears that the world would divide us

So, baby, can we dance?

Oh, through an avalanche? And

Say, say that we got it

I'm a mess, but I'm the mess that you wanted

Oh, 'cause it's gravity

Oh, keeping you with me, I–

[Pre-Chorus]

Could've spent forever with your hands in my pockets

Picture of your face in an invisible locket

You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it

I had a bad feeling

[Chorus]

But we were dancing

Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied

Yeah, we were dancing

Like it was the first time, first time

Yeah, we were dancing

Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied

Yeah, we were dancing

(Knew we had our hands tied)

And I had a bad feeling

But we were dancing

[Bridge]

I'd kiss you as the lights went out

Swaying as the room burned down

I'd hold you as the water rushes in

If I could dance with you again

I'd kiss you as the lights went out

Swaying as the room burned down

I'd hold you as the water rushes in

If I could dance with you again

(Again!)

[Outro]

Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied

(Oh) Yeah, we were dancing

Like it was the first time, first time

Yeah, we were dancing (oh!)

Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied

(Dancing with our hands tied)

Yeah, we were dancing

And I had a bad feeling (had a bad feeling)

But we were dancing

Hands tied, hands tied

(Dancing)


Dress

[Verse 1]

Our secret moments in a crowded room

They got no idea about me and you

There is an indentation in the shape of you

Made your mark on me, a golden tattoo

[Pre-Chorus]

All of this silence and patience, pining and anticipation

My hands are shaking from holding back from you

Ha, ah, ah

All of this silence and patience, pining and desperately waiting

My hands are shaking from all this

Ah, ha, ha, ha-ah

[Chorus]

Say my name and everything just stops

I don't want you like a best friend

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah

Carve your name into my bedpost

’Cause I don't want you like a best friend

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah

[Verse 2]

Inescapable, I'm not even gonna try

And if I get burned, at least we were electrified

I’m spilling wine in the bathtub

You kiss my face and we're both drunk

Everyone thinks that they know us

But they know nothing about—

[Pre-Chorus]

All of this silence and patience, pining and anticipation

My hands are shaking from holding back from you

Ha, ah, ah

All of this silence and patience, pining and desperately waiting

My hands are shaking from all this

Ah, ha, ha, ha-ah

[Chorus]

Say my name and everything just stops

I don't want you like a best friend

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah

Carve your name into my bedpost

'Cause I don't want you like a best friend

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Take it oh, ha, ha...

[Post-Chorus]

Ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah-ah

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah, ha-ah-ah-ah

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

[Bridge]

Flashback when you met me

Your buzzcut and my hair bleached

Even in my worst times, you could see the best of me

Flashback to my mistakes

My rebounds, my earthquakes

Even in my worst lies, you saw the truth in me

And I woke up just in time

Now I wake up by your side

My one and only, my lifeline

I woke up just in time

Now I wake up by your side

My hands shake, I can't explain this

Ah, ha, ha, ha-ah

[Chorus]

Say my name and everything just stops...

I don't want you like a best friend

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah

Carve your name into my bedpost

'Cause I don’t want you like a best friend

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

Take it oh, ha, ha, ha-ah

[Outro]

There is an indentation in the shape of you

Only bought this dress so you could take it off

You made your mark on me, golden tattoo

Only bought this dress so you could take it off


This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

[Verse 1]

It was so nice throwing big parties

Jump into the pool from the balcony

Everyone swimming in a champagne sea

And there are no rules when you show up here

Bass beat rattling the chandelier

Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year

[Pre-Chorus]

So why'd you have to rain on my parade?

I'm shaking my head and locking the gates

[Chorus]

This is why we can't have nice things, darling

Because you break them

I had to take them away

This is why we can't have nice things, honey

Did you think I wouldn't hear all the things you said about me?

This is why we can't have nice things

[Verse 2]

It was so nice being friends again

There I was, giving you a second chance

But then you stabbed in the back while shaking my hand

And therein lies the issue

Friends don't try to trick you

Get you on the phone and mind-twist you

And so I took an axe to a mended fence

[Pre-Chorus]

But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately

If only you weren't so shady

[Chorus]

This is why we can't have nice things, darling

Because you break them

I had to take them away

This is why we can't have nice things, honey

Did you think I wouldn't hear all the things you said about me?

This is why we can't have-

[Bridge]

Here's a toast to my real friends

They don't care about the he-said-she-said

And here's to my baby

He ain't reading what they call me lately

And here's to my momma

Had to listen to all this drama

And here's to you

'Cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do

Haha, I can't even say it with a straight face

[Chorus]

This is why we can't have nice things, darling (darling)

Because you break them

I had to take them away

This is why we can't have nice things, honey

Did you think I wouldn't hear all the things you said about me?

This is why we can't have nice things, darling

(And here's to my real friends)

Because you break them

I had to take them away

(And here's to my baby)

This is why we can't have nice things, darling

(He didn't care about that he-said-she-said)

Did you think I wouldn't hear all the things you said about me?

This is why we can't have nice things


Call it What You Want

[Verse 1]

My castle crumbled overnight

I brought a knife to a gunfight

They took the crown, but it's alright

All the liars are calling me one

Nobody's heard from me for months

I'm doin' better than I ever was

'Cause

[Chorus]

My baby's fit like a daydream

Walking with his head down

I'm the one he's walking to

So call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want to

My baby's fly like a jet stream

High above the whole scene

Loves me like I'm brand new

So call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want to

[Verse 2]

All my flowers grew back as thorns

Windows boarded up after the storm

He built a fire just to keep me warm

All the drama queens taking swings

All the jokers dressing up as kings

They fade to nothing when I look at him

And I know I make the same mistakes every time

Bridges burn, I never learn

At least I did one thing right

I did one thing right

I'm laughing with my lover, makin' forts under covers

Trust him like a brother

Yeah, you know I did one thing right

Starry eyes sparkin' up my darkest night

[Chorus]

My baby's fit like a daydream

Walking with his head down

I'm the one he's walking to

So call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want to

My baby's fly like a jet stream

High above the whole scene

Loves me like I'm brand new

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

So call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want to

[Bridge]

I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck

Chain round my neck

Not because he owns me

But 'cause he really knows me

Which is more than they can say, I...

I recall late November

Holdin' my breath, slowly I said

"You don't need to save me

But would you run away with me?"

Yes (would you run away?)

[Chorus]

My baby's fit like a daydream

Walking with his head down

I'm the one he's walking to

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

So call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want to

My baby's fly like a jet stream

High above the whole scene

Loves me like I'm brand new

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

So call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want to

[Outro]

(Call it what you want, call it)

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

(Call it what you want, call it what you want, call it)

Call it what you want, yeah

Call it what you want… to


New Year’s Day

[Verse 1]

There's glitter on the floor after the party

Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby

Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor

You and me from the night before, but

[Chorus]

Don’t read the last page

But I stay when you're lost, and I'm scared

And you’re turning away

I want your midnights

But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day

[Verse 2]

You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi

I can tell that it's gonna be a long road

I'll be there if you're the toast of the town, babe

Or if you strike out and you're crawling home

[Chorus]

Don't read the last page

But I stay when it’s hard, or it’s wrong

Or we're making mistakes

I want your midnights

But I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day

[Post-Chorus]

Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

And I will hold on to you

[Bridge]

Please don't ever become a stranger

Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere

Please don't ever become a stranger

Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere

[Verse 3]

There’s glitter on the floor after the party

Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby

Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor

You and me forevermore

[Chorus]

Don't read the last page

But I stay when it's hard, or it's wrong

Or we're making mistakes

I want your midnights

But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day

[Post-Chorus]

Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

And I will hold on to you

[Outro]

Please don't ever become a stranger

(To the memories, they will hold on to you)

Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere

(Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you)

Please don't ever become a stranger

(Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you)

Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere

(I will hold on to you)
