State of Grace
by Taylor Swift

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 'til it hurts or bleeds
Or fades in time

And I never
(Never)
Saw you coming
And I'll never
(Never)
Be the same

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

So you were never a saint
And I loved in shades of wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mosaic broken hearts
But this love is great and wild

And I never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Saw you coming (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
And I'll never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Be the same

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

And I never
(Never)
Saw you coming
And I'll never
Be the same
Yeah, oh-oh

And I never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Saw you coming (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
And I'll never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(So you were never a saint)
(And I loved in shades of wrong)
Be the same (we learn to live with the pain)
(Mosaic broken hearts)
(But this love is great and wild)

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

I can't even begin to describe how brilliantly written this song is. So many amazing lyrics. "This is a state of grace. This is the worthwhile fight. Love is a ruthless game, unless you play it good and right." She's one of the best songwriters of the 21st century.

@Grace Eclavea A lot of people are comparing it to Red, but I think that Folklore is even greater a lyrical masterpiece than Red could ever aspire to be. It has a maturity about it that just makes it superior to almost all else she's done previously. It's probably her greatest sonic and lyrical achievement. Not to mention, it's one of the most critically acclaimed albums of all time!

enesjesty

*of all time
