Taylor Swift Lyrics

Album: folklore
Year: 2020

Lyrics:

Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young they assume you know nothing
Secret smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young they assume you know nothing

But I knew you, dancing in your Levis
Drunk under a streetlight I knew you
Hand under my sweatshirt
Baby kiss it better
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

A friend to all is a friend to none
Chase two girls, lose the one
When you are young they assume you know nothing

But I knew you
Playing hide-and-seek and
Giving me your weekends
I knew you
Your heartbeat on the High Line
Once in twenty lifetimes
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

To kiss in cars
And downtown bars
Was all we needed
You draw stars
Around my scars
But now I’m bleeding

Cause I knew you stepping on the last train
Marked me like a bloodstain I knew you
Tried to change the ending Peter losing Wendy
I knew you
Leaving like a father
Running like water
When you are young they assume you know nothing

But I knew you’d linger
Like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt
All of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke would
Hang around this long
Cause I knew everything when I was young
I knew I’d curse you for the longest time
Chasing shadows in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss me once the thrill expired
And you’d be standing in my front porch light
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back

And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite
