Best Lyrics From Red (Taylor’s Version)

Taylor Swift released her re-recording of RED last Friday, November 12.

Swift is widely regarded as one of the greatest lyricists of our time, and ‘Red’ is widely known as one of the best breakup albums of all time. Let’s go through some of Red’s best lyrics, both from old songs and from the vault.

  1. State of Grace 

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

  1. All Too Well

And you call me up again / Just to break me like a promise / So casually cruel in the name of being honest.

  1. Holy Ground

And I guess we fell apart in the usual way / And the story’s got dust on every page / But sometimes I wonder how you think about it now / And I see your face in every crowd.

  1. All Too Well (10-minute Version)

And you were tossing me the car keys, fuck the patriarchy / Key chain on the ground, we were always skipping town / And I was thinking on the drive down, any time now / He’s gonna say it’s love, you never called it what it was.

  1. Run (ft. Ed Sheeran)

So you laugh like a child / And I’ll sing like no one cares / No one to be, no one to tell / I could see this view a hundred times /Pale blue sky reflected in your eyes.

  1. Forever Winter

If I was standing there in your apartment / I’d take that bomb in your head and disarm it / I’d say I love you even at your darkest and / Please don’t go.

  1. Nothing New

And I know it’s sad but this is what I think about / And I wake up in the middle of the night / It’s like I can feel time moving / How can a person know everything at eighteen / But nothing at twenty-two? / And will you still want me when I’m nothing new?

  1. Sad Beautiful Tragic

In dreams, I meet you in warm conversation / And we both wake in lonely beds, different cities / And time is taking its sweet time erasing you / And you’ve got your demons / And darling, they all look like me.

9. I Bet You Think About Me

Now you’re out in the world, searchin’ for your soul / Scared not to be hip, scared to get old / Chasing make-believe status, last time you felt free / Was when none of that sh*t mattered ’cause you were with me.

  1.  All Too Well (10-minute Version)

And there we are again when nobody had to know / You kept me as a secret but I kept you like an oath.
