Taylor Swift Lyrics


Combat, I'm ready for combat
I say I don't want that, but what if I do?
'Cause cruelty wins in the movies
I've got a hundred thrown-out speeches I almost said to you

Easy they come, easy they go
I jump from the train, I ride off alone
I never grew up, it's getting so old
Help me hold onto you
I've been the archer
I've been the prey
Who could ever leave me, darling?
But who could stay?

Dark side, I search for your dark side
But what if I'm alright, right, right, right here?
And I cut off my nose just to spite my face
Then I hate my reflection for years and years

I wake in the night, I pace like a ghost
The room is on fire, invisible smoke
And all of my heroes die all alone
Help me hold onto you

I've been the archer,
I've been the prey
Screaming, who could ever leave me, darling?
But who could stay?
(I see right through me, I see right through me)

'Cause they see right through me
They see right through me
They see right through
Can you see right through me?
They see right through
They see right through me
I see right through me
I see right through me

All the king's horses, all the king's men
Couldn't put me together again
'Cause all of my enemies started out friends
Help me hold onto you

I've been the archer
I've been the prey
Who could ever leave me, darling?
But who could stay?
(I see right through me, I see right through me)
Who could stay?
Who could stay?
Who could stay?
You could stay
You could stay
You

Combat, I'm ready for combat

Nah foklore is its own vibe
Red makes me want to go back to when I was 10 dancing w my friends at a sleepover with no bad thoughts any where near

1989 is like walking in the pouring rain at twilight down times Square spinning as you go

reputation is a freaking power move

Lover is.... falling in love, all the chaos drama and pain but mostly the beautiful moments in between.

Foklore is sitting in a woden swing in some mystical forest clearing with blue skys above and even tho you can't see it you can just feel that there's like a lavender field just around the corner and you know that cuz it was your childhood home in a different life and like ughhhhhsskjksjksjksjjskjsjsksjjs its beautiful
