The Best Day
Taylor Swift Lyrics

I'm five years old
It's getting cold
I've got my big coat on

I hear your laugh
And look up smiling at you
I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch
And the tractor rides
Look now, the sky is gold
I hug your legs
And fall asleep on the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
But I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now
And don't know how
My friends could be so mean
I come home crying
And you hold me tight
And grab the keys

And we drive and drive
Until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop
'Till I forgotten all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing
On the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day with you today

I have an excellent father
His strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out he's better than I am
I grew up in a pretty house
And I had space to run and I
had the best days with you

There is a video I found
From back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen
And you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships
And the seven dwarfs
And Daddy's smart
And you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side
Even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine and

I didn't know if you knew
So I'm taking this chance to say
That I had the best day with you today.

Taylor is a product of a very supportive parents. And look at what happen when you support your child, they grow and spread their wings. I will adopt this when I will be a parent someday. Recording every milestone of my child, and being a supportive parent ever! Thanks taylor!


I was just thinking this!! My kids are gonna have literally everything that I didn’t.

@Micah Silvestre congrats 🎉🎂
Yes it depends on the person. But circumstances play a big role too.

Micah Silvestre

Nilanjana Bhattacharjee definitely! But I guess it still depends on the perseverance of a person. I am not fully supported by my parents but I thrived. I am having my first year anniversary of my Milk Tea Shop/Café this week, despite not having their full support. But yeah, it will be way more better if they are supportive. It makes it easier.

Nilanjana Bhattacharjee

I completely agree. So many people would turn out differently if they had a supportive, loving and stable family.


I wish i could have a parent like that
