Taylor Swift quotes 


Below are lyric excerpts from songs from her most recent albums. 


1. 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 I knew you’d come back to me

You’d come back to me

And you’d come back to me

And you’d come back

― Taylor Swift (Cardigan)


2. I think I’ve seen this film before

And I didn’t like the ending

You’re not my homeland anymore

So what am I defendin’ now?

You were my town

Now I’m in exile seein’ you out

I think I’ve seen this film before

– Taylor Swift (Exile)


taylor swift august lyrics


3. Sweet tea in the summer

Cross your heart, won’t tell no other

And though I can’t recall your face

I still got love for you

Your braids like a pattern

Love you to the moon and to Saturn

Passed down like folk songs

The love lasts so long

– Taylor Swift (Seven)


4. Even on my worst day

Did I deserve, babe

All the hell you gave me?

‘Cause I loved you

I swear I loved you

Till my dying day

– Taylor Swift (My Tears Ricochet)


5. But I can see us

Lost in the memory

August slipped away into a moment in time

‘Cause it was never mine

And I can see us twisted in bedsheets

August sipped away

Like a bottle of wine

‘Cause you were never mine, mine

– Taylor Swift (August)

6. And I just wanted you to know

That this is me trying (Maybe I don’t quite know what to say)

I just wanted you to know

That this is me trying

At least I’m trying

– Taylor Swift (This is me trying)


7. And that’s the thing about illicit affairs

And clandestine meetings

And longing stares

It’s born from just one single glance

But it dies and it dies and it dies

…a million little times

– Taylor Swift (Illicit affairs)


8. Time

Wondrous time

Gave me the blues and then purple pink skies

And it’s cool

Baby with me

And isn’t it just so pretty to think

All along there was some

Invisible string

Tying you to me?

– Taylor Swift (Invisible string)

Like the Gardens of Babylon

With your boots beneath my bed

Forever is the sweetest con

And the road not taken looks real good now

And it always leads to you in my hometown

Rare as the glimmer of a comet in the sky

And he feels like home

If the shoe fits, walk in it everywhere you go

I searched aurora borealis green 

I’ve never seen someone lit from within

Blurring out my periphery

My smile is like I won a contest

And to hide that would be so dishonest

Oh no, I’m falling in love again

Oh, I’m falling in love
