Holy Ground
Taylor Swift Lyrics


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 in my poems like a perfect rhyme
Took off faster than a green light "Go"
Yeah, you skipped the conversation when you already know
I left a note on the door with a joke we’d made
And that was the first day

And darling, it was good never looking down
And right there where we stood was holy ground

Spinning like 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

Cause darling, it was good never looking down
And right there where we stood was holy ground

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through
But I don’t 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

It was good never looking down
And right there where we stood was holy ground

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through
But I don’t 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

10 Facts you probably didn’t know about Taylor Swift’s Holy Ground.

1. The song was written by Taylor, while the production was handled by Jeff Bhasker.

2. This lyrics begun in February 2012.

3. In the song, Taylor is looking back at a whirl wind relationship from her past. She’s realizing just because the relationship didn’t work out, doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good memory or that it was wasted time. The memories are still safe and sacred. Just because Taylor and the guy weren’t meant to be, doesn’t mean she can’t look back fondly at the time they spent together. Every mistake is a lesson learned.

4. She wrote this song about her first love at 18.

5. The hidden message of the song is "When you came to the show in SD".

6. Rumors of the song being about Jonas were fueled by his appearance at Taylor's San Diego show during the Speak Now World Tour.

7. She played this song and "The Lucky One" for Jeff Bhasker, acoustically, in the studio, the first time he heard them.

8. Paul Sidoti, guitarist of Taylor, says that this song is "probably the mostly the most poweful and rocking song" he has ever performed with Taylor.

9. Amos, basist of Taylor, this song is his favorite song to perform on the RED TOUR

10. A fan at the Nashville 1989 Secret Session asked her whta the background vocals in Holy Ground were saying and she said they were just "vocalizations to represent happiness."

This version is:

"I love you. That's why I let you go."

Nostalgic sweetness and a twinge of pain but with an after taste of joy.

Waking up early morning after a dream, the sun slowly rising. Relishing the memory when both of you would witness a new day together.

An old photo album in an old armoire found after many years.

Beautiful memories, haunting and feverish.

[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

[Outro]
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
