Our Song
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I was ridin' shotgun with my hair undone
In the front seat of his car
He's got a one-hand feel on the steerin' wheel
The other on my heart
I look around, turn the radio down
He says, "Baby, is somethin' wrong?"
I say, "Nothin', I was just thinkin'
How we don't have a song"
And he says

Our song is the slammin' screen door
Sneakin' out late, tappin' 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
Askin' God if he could play it again

I was walkin' up the front porch steps
After everything that day
Had gone all wrong, had 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

Our song is the slammin' screen door
Sneakin' out late, tappin' 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
Askin' God if he could play it again

Da-da-da, da

I've heard every album, listened to the radio
Waited for somethin' to come along
That was as good as our song

'Cause our song is the slammin' screen door
Sneakin' out late, tappin' 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
Askin' God if he could play it again
Play it again
Oh, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah

I was ridin' 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

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Taylor Swift's "Our Song" tell the story of the memories shared between two young lovers. The song opens with the singer riding shotgun with her hair undone in the front seat of her boyfriend's car, reflecting on their relationship. The boyfriend has one hand on the steering wheel and the other on her heart, which reflects the connection they share. As she looks around, she turns the radio down, and the boyfriend asks if something is wrong. She tells him she was just thinking about how they don't have a song. He then replies by saying that their song is everything that they do together, from the slammin' screen door to sneakin' out late, tappin' on the window to talking slow on the phone. The chorus reveals that their song is the way she laughs, the first date, and when she gets home, praying to God that he plays it again.

This song will truly never go out of style. She is literally a mastermind. The story, the allure, the chords, the uncertainty, the simplicity and aesthetic. It's brilliant.
