State of Grace
Taylor Swift Lyrics


I'm walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives
And all we know
Is touch and go
We are alone with our changing minds
We fall in love 'til it hurts or bleeds
Or fades in time

And I never
(Never)
Saw you coming
And I'll never
(Never)
Be the same

You come around and the armor falls
Pierce the room like a cannon ball
Now all we know
Is don't let go
We are alone, just you and me
Up in your room and our slates are clean
Just twin fire signs
Four blue eyes

So you were never a saint
And I loved in shades of wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mosaic broken hearts
But this love is great and wild

And I never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Saw you coming (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
And I'll never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Be the same

This is a state of grace
This is the worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
These are the hands of fate
You're my Achilles heel
This is the golden age of something good
And right and real

And I never
(Never)
Saw you coming
And I'll never
Be the same
Yeah, oh-oh

And I never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Saw you coming (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
And I'll never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(So you were never a saint)
(And I loved in shades of wrong)
Be the same (we learn to live with the pain)
(Mosaic broken hearts)
(But this love is great and wild)

This is a state of grace
This is the worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right

"Red is about to be mine again, but it has always been ours."

9 years later and State of Grace is still one of my fave TS songs of all time. 9 years later and Red is is still my fave album. I'm glad she got back what is rightfully hers. Thank you for being a huge part of who I am today, Red TV and Taylor 😭😭💕

Brooke Graham

Yesss I feel this, my favorite album too

@Mari Dizon I think she had a falling out with her old label and they wanted to extort her. She decided against paying the ransom to get her music back, and so she re-recorded the old songs.

Jess X

This is my favorite album as well!!! Sad she never made a music video of the tour!

Good For Nutting

2 albums back, 4 to go!

FACT : Taylor Swift explained that this song can be seen as both the introduction and the conclusion of this album because it contains a warning for what love can be: both amazing and devastating at the same time.
By the way the beats and vocals are living free on my mind now🧣❤️Her sound sounds so mature and gorgeous 🥰
