I Almost Do
Taylor Swift Lyrics


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 bet
Sometimes you wonder 'bout me
And I just wanna 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

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

And I just wanna 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

Oh, we made quite a mess, babe
It's probably better off this way
And I confess, babe
In my dreams you're touching my face
And asking me if I wanna try again with you
And I almost do

And I just wanna 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
Uh-uh-uh

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 'bout me

Lyrics( I Almost do):-
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

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
Everytime I don't, I almost do
I almost do

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

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
Everytime I don't, I almost do
I almost do

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

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
Everytime I don't, I almost do
I almost do

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 hope
Sometimes you wonder about me

intro- 0:00-0:13
verse 1- 0:14-0:39
chorus 1- 0:40-1:18
verse 2- 1:19-1:45
chorus 2- 1:46-2:23
bridge- 2:24-2:51
chorus 3- 2:52-3:30
outro- 3:31-4:04


Song's not that great(my opinion after listening to the song for the first time). Chorus, bridge, and post bridge have a little potential. The most significant thing about this song is your song structure. I noticed during the intro, something is going on with one of your guitar notes(the one that stands out). I'd like to know the story behind that if it's not too personal. I liked the "We made quite a mess" lyrics. The background vocals towards the end could have been improved to sound more natural(they sound like they were auto tuned or something). Did Tim McGraw get your permission to use the "I bet" lyrics in his Highway Don't Care single? Just curious how that works.

"And I confess, babe, in my dreams you're touching my face and asking me if I want to try again..........with you. And I almost do."

One of her most poignant, heartwrenching bridges! Not to mention, she wrote this song ALONE.

Auror Eis

She's the songwriter and the storyteller of the century, we all know that
