You're on Your Own Kid
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Summer went away, still the yearning stays
I play it cool with the best of them
I wait patiently, he's gonna notice me
It's okay, we're the best of friends
Anyway
I hear it in your voice, you're smokin' with your boys
I touch my phone as if it's your face
I didn't choose this town, I dream of getting out
There's just one who could make me stay
All my days

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I waited ages to see you there
I searched the party of better bodies
Just to learn that you never cared

You're on your own, kid
You always have been

I see the great escape, so long, Daisy May
I picked the petals, he loves me not
Something different bloomed, writing in my room
I play my songs in the parking lot
I'll run away

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I called a taxi to take me there
I searched the party of better bodies
Just to learn that my dreams aren't rare

You're on your own, kid
You always have been

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I gave my blood, sweat, and tears for this
I hosted parties and starved my body
Like I'd be saved by a perfect kiss
The jokes weren't funny, I took the money
My friends from home don't know what to say
I looked around in a blood-soaked gown
And I saw something they can't take away
'Cause there were pages turned with the bridges burned
Everything you lose is a step you take
So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it
You've got no reason to be afraid

You're on your own, kid
Yeah, you can face this
You're on your own, kid
You always have been

Summer went away, still the yearning stays
I play it cool with the best of them
I wait patiently, he's gonna notice me
It's okay, we're the best of friends, anyway
I hear it in your voice, you're smokin' with your boys
I touch my phone as it fits your face
I didn't choose this town, I dream of getting out
There's just one who could make me stay all my days
From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I waited ages to see you live
I searched the party of better bodies
Just to learn that you never cared
You're on your own, kid
You always have been
I see the great escape, so long Daisy Mae
I picked the petals, he loves me not
Something different bloomed, writing in my room

Just to learn that my dreams aren't rare

You're on your own, kid
You always have been

The line "the jokes weren't funny" hits too close to our heart..... because we all have been through this thing...where there are people who make insensitive jokes without realising that it might hurt you .......some jokes are simply not funny

@WinE pArTy!!!!! read this on my way to school.. i cant explain how thankful i am for the words you said. Thank you so much for the kind words!! I'll treasure it!!

WinE pArTy!!!!!

@Christine Mae Bahian omg..that's not okay 😔 we can't even call them jokes but pure meanness... you're beautiful no matter how u look, as long as your heart is pure and kind💗 no one has the right to talk abt your weight or anything...you're the queen of your life!!! And if someday u can tell people that u prefer not them to ''joke'' abt that (because you are hurt...) it will help you! That's okay I you can't, find new people to stay with, if they love you they'll never ''joke'' abt your appearance 🙏🏻 Love you 💜

WinE pArTy!!!!!
