Perfectly Good Heart
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart
Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart now
Why would you wanna make the very first scar
Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart

Maybe I should've seen the signs, should've read the writing on the wall
And realized by the distance in your eyes that I would be the one to fall
No matter what you say I still can't believe
That you would walk away
It don't make sense to me but

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart
Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart now
Why would you wanna make the very first scar
Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart

It's not unbroken anymore
How do I get it back the way it was before

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart
Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart now
Why would you wanna make the very first scar
Why would you wanna break, would you wanna break a

Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart
Why would you wanna take our love and tear it all apart now




Why would you wanna make the very first scar
Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart

Overall Meaning

In the song "A Perfectly Good Heart," Taylor Swift is questioning why someone would want to destroy a perfectly good relationship. She is left confused and hurt as the person she loves is acting out of character, tearing down everything they had built together. Swift wonders why this person would want to hurt her and leave her with scars that will always remain.


As she sings, Swift realizes that she should have seen the signs that the relationship was headed for trouble, but she was blinded by her love for this person. Even though she knows that this relationship is over and her heart is broken, she still can't believe that the person she loved would leave her in this state. In the end, she is left feeling broken and shattered, wondering how she will ever be able to restore her heart to its former self.


The song is a poignant expression of the pain and confusion that comes with a broken heart. It speaks to the universal experience of love and heartbreak, and it reminds us that even though love can be beautiful, it can also be fragile and easily shattered.
