Begin Again
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Took a deep breath in the mirror
He didn't like it when I wore high heels, but I do
Turned 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 wait
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

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 café I watched it begin again

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

But you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it's strange that you think I'm funny 'cause he never did
I've been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
But on a wednesday in a café I watched it begin again

And we walk 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 won't
Talk about that
And for the first time
What's past is past

'Cause you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it's strange that you think I'm funny 'cause he never did
I've been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does
Is break and burn and end
Then on a wednesday in a café I watched it begin again

Then on a wednesday in a café I watched it begin again

I was sitting outside a Pret late last night, in Carnaby Street, drinking a hot chocolate and listening to this. During which, a gorgeous man with wonderful eyes, tapped me on the shoulder, I took out my earphones and after saying hello to each other..... he asked me for directions.

I gave them to him, after using google maps... he continued to walk away. From the accent, it's possible he was on holiday. Perhaps he was going on a date (as the location was suitable). I doubt I'll see him again.

Would have been such a lovely moment, if that was a moment. Unfortunately, it was not. It's horrible being alone... living a life in single isolation is not fun. I don't mind living alone, but living as single - is something that my 20-something year old self cannot handle. I feel like life is passing me by.

On a wednesday, in a cafe, I hope it begins again...

Edit: 2021, a few guys later (and some terrible experiences)... it's begun again.
I was in a coffee shop today (a saturday) with a man and my heart is full.
Hold on in there. Even when love appears, it might not be love itself... but there is true love and connection out there. It just takes time.

reading all your comments... im trying to heal, just broke up from a 5 yr abusive relationship with a narcissist, that I never even realized until he cheated behind me.. I feel like my world is crumbling and I don't know if I ever heal or find love again...

Omg so true ❤️

Rifka Nurul Utami

Exactly! I've always loved this song when I was still in my unhealthy past relationship, but couldn't really relate to it. Not until I broke up with that ex, and met the guy (to whom I am happily married to now) 7 months later. I told my husband on his birthday that I think of this song when I first met him and now he officially calls this song his "birthday song" :D

I'm listening to this on October 1, 2021 since it is begin again's 9th anniversary. Also I wanna start October, my birthmonth, full of Hope and optimism. September has it's ups and downs and somehow, this song always reminds me of a better outcome. It's really calming and peaceful. Thank you Taylor. Happy October 1st and happy anniversary to this masterpiece.
