Fearless

Fearless
(Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

There's somethin' 'bout the way
The street looks when it's just rained
There's a glow off the pavement
You walk me to the car
And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there
In the middle of the parking lot
Yeah
Oh yeah

We're drivin' down the road
I wonder if you know
I'm tryin' so hard not to get caught up now
But you're just so cool
Run your hands through your hair
Absentmindedly you're makin' me want you

And I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

So baby drive slow
'Til we run out of road in this one horse town
I wanna stay right here in this passenger's seat
You put your eyes on me
In this moment now capture it, remember it

Cause I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Well you stood there with me in the doorway
My hands shake
I'm not usually this way but
You pull me in and I'm a little more brave
It's the first kiss,
It's flawless,
Really something,
It's fearless

Oh yeah
Cause I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Cause I don't know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me head first
Fearless
And I don't know why but with you I'd dance
In a storm in my best dress
Fearless

Oh, oh yeah

Fifteen

Fifteen
(Taylor Swift)

You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It's the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you ain't seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybody's way
It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here
For the next four years in this town
Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say
You know I haven't seen you around, before

'Cause when you're fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're fifteen feeling like
There's nothing to figure out
But count to ten, take it in
This is life before you know
Who you're gonna be
Fifteen

You sit in a class next to a redhead named Abigail
And soon enough you're best friends
Laughing at the others girls
Who think they're so cool
We'll be out of here as soon as we can
And then you're on you're very first date
And he's got a car and you're feeling like flying
And you're mamma's waiting up and you're thinking he's the one
And you're dancing 'round your room when the night ends
When the night ends

'Cause when you're fifteen and
Somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
When you're fifteen and your first kiss
Makes you head spin 'round but
In your life you'll do things greater
Than dating the boy on the football team
But I didn't know it at fifteen

When all you wanted
Was to be wanted
Wish you could go back
And tell yourself what you know now

Back then I swore I was gonna
Marry him someday
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy
Who changed his mind
And we both cried

'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You're gonna believe them
And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall
I've found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you're supposed to be
I didn't know who I was supposed to be
At fifteen

la la la la la...la la la la la...la la la la la

Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors

Love Story

Love Story
(Taylor Swift)

We were both young when i first saw you
I closed my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On the balcony in summer air

See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd And say hello, little did i know

That you were romeo,you were throwing
pebbles
And my daddy said to stay away from juliet
And i was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don't go, and i said

Romeo take me somewhere where we can be alone
I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and i'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes

Romeo save me there trying to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story baby just say yes
Oh Oh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When i met you on the outskirts of town, and i said

Romeo save me i've been feelling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think
He kelt to the ground and pulled out a ring

And said, marry me juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all i really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes

Oh Oh, Oh Oh
'Cause we were both young when i first saw you...

Hey Stephen

Hey Stephen
(Taylor Swift)

Hey Stephen, I know looks can be deceivin'
But I know I saw a light in you
And as we walked we were talking
I didn't say half the things I wanted to
Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window
I'll be the one waiting there even when it's cold
Hey Stephen, boy you might have me believin'
I don't always have to be alone

Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
I can't help myself

Hey Stephen, I've been holding back this feelin'
So I've got some things to say to you
I've seen it all, so I thought
But I've never seen no body shine the way you do
The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name
It's beautiful, wonderful, don't you ever change
Hey Stephen, why are people always leavin'
I think you and I should stay the same

Cause I can't help it if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
I can't help myself

They're dimming the street lights, you're perfect for me
Why aren't you here tonight?
I'm waiting alone now so come on and come out
And pull me near and shine, shine, shine

Hey Stephen, I could give you fifty reasons
Why I should be the one you choose
All those other girls, well they're beautiful
But would they write a song for you?
Haha

I can't help it if you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
I can't help myself

If you look like an angel
Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
Can't help it if there's no one else
I can't help myself, myself
Can't help myself
I can't help myself

White Horse

White Horse
(Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

Say you're sorry
That face of an angel comes out
Just when you need it to
As I pace back and forth all this time
'Cause I honestly believed in you
Holding on,
The days drag on
Stupid girl
I should have known, I should have known

That I'm not a princess
This ain't a fairytale
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain't Hollywood,
This is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now its too late for you and your White Horse,
To come around.

Baby I was naŪve,
Got lost in your eyes
I never really had a chance,
My mistake, I didn't know,
To be in love you had to fight to get the uppper hand
I had so many dreams about you and me.
Happy endings
Now I know

I'm not a princess
This ain't a fairytale
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain't Hollywood,
This is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now its too late for you and your White Horse,
To come around.

And there you are on your knees
Begging for forgiveness,
Begging for me
Just like I always wanted,
But I'm so sorry

Cause I'm not your princess
This ain't our fairytale
I'm gonna find someone, someday
Who might actually treat me well.
This is a big world,
That was a small town
There in my rear view mirror,
Disappearing now.
And it's too late for you and your White Horse
Now its too late for you and your White Horse
To catch me now.

Oh whoa whoa whoa-oh
Try and catch me now
Oh
It's too late
To catch me now.

You Belong with Me

You Belong with Me
(Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

You're on the phone with your girlfriend, She's upset
She's going off about something that you said
She doesn't get your humor like I do

I'm in the room, its a typical Tuesday night
I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like
And she'll never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you'll wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can't you see?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Walking the streets with you in your worn out jeans
I cant help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench thinking to myself
Hey isn't this easy?

And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven't seen it in awhile, since she brought you down
You say your fine I know you better than that
Hey, whatcha doing with a girl like that?

She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming bout the day when you'll wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can't you see?
You belong with me
Standing by here, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that?
You belong with me
You belong with me

Oh I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I'm the one who makes you laugh when you know you're about to cry
I know your favorite songs and you tell me about your dreams
I think I know where you belong. I think I know it's with me.

Can't you see that I'm the one who understand you?
Been here all along so why can't you see?
You belong with me
Standing by here, waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know that
You belong with me
You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me
You belong with me

Breathe (Feat. Coblie Caillet)

Breathe (Feat. Colbie Caillet)
[Colbie Caillett, Taylor Swift]

I see your face in my mind as I drive away,
Cause none of us thought it was gonna end that way.
People are people,
And sometimes we change our minds.
But itís killing me to see you go after all this time.

Mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

Music starts playiní like the end of a sad movie,
Itís the kinda ending you donít really wanna see.
Cause itís tragedy and itíll only bring you down,
Now I donít know what to be without you around.

And we know itís never simple,
Never easy.
Never a clean break, noone here to save me.
Youíre the only thing I know like the back of my hand,
And I canít,
Breathe,
Without you,
But I have to,
Breathe,
Without you,
But I have to.

Never wanted this, never wanna see you hurt.
Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve.
But people are people,
And sometimes it doesnít work out,
Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out.

And we know itís never simple,
Never easy.
Never a clean break, no one here to save me.
Youíre the only thing I know like the back of my hand,
And I canít,
Breathe,
Without you,
But I have to,
Breathe,
Without you,
But I have to.

Itís two a.m.
Feelin' like I just lost a friend.
Hope you know itís not easy,
Easy for me.
Itís two a.m.
Feeliní like I just lost a friend.
Hope you know this ainít easy,
Easy for me.

And we know itís never simple,
Never easy.
Never a clean break, noone here to save me.

Ohhh

I canít,
Breathe,
Without you,
But I have to,
Breathe,
Without you,
But I have to.

Sorry (oh) Sorry (mmm)
Sorry (eh eh) Sorry (mmm)
Sorry (eh eh) Sorry (mmm)
Sorry

Tell Me Why

Tell Me Why
(Liz Rose, Taylor Swift)

I took a chance, i took a shot
And you might think I'm bulletproof, but I'm not
You took a swing, i took it hard
And down here from the ground i see who you are

I'm sick and tired of your attitude
I'm feeling like I don't know you
You tell me that that you love me then cut me down
And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you're
And here's to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you're doing to me
Tell me why

You could write a book on how to ruin someone's perfect day
Well I get so confused and frustrated
Forget what I'm trying to say, oh

I'm sick and tired of your reasons
I got no one to believe in
You tell me that you want me, then push me around
And I need you like a heartbeat
But you know you got a mean streak
Makes me run for cover when you're around
Here's to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you're doing to me
Tell me why

Why...do you have to make me feel small
So you can feel whole inside
Why...do you have to put down my dreams
So you're the only thing on my mind

I'm sick and tired of your attitude
I'm feeling like i don't know you
You tell me that you love me then cut me down
I'm sick and tired of your reasons
I've got no one to believe in
You ask me for my love, the you push me around
Here's to you and your temper
Yes, I remember what you said last night
And I know that you see what you're doing to me
Tell me why
Why, tell me why

I take a step back, let you go
I told you I wasn't bulletproof
Now you know

You're Not Sorry

You're Not Sorry
(Taylor Swift)

All this time I was wasting hoping you would come around.
I've been giving out chances every time and all you do is let me down.
And it's taken me this long baby but I figured you out.
And you think it will be fine again but not this time around.

You don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no no no

Looking so innocent, I might believe you if I didn't know.
Could've loved you all my life if you hadn't left me waiting in the cold.
And you've got your share of secrets and I'm tired of being last to know.
And now you're asking me to listen cause it's worked each time before.

But you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
Don't wanna hurt anymore
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no no whoa-ah-oh
You're not sorry, no no no whoa-ah-oh

You had me calling for you honey and it never would have gone away, no.
You used to shine so bright but I watch all of it fade.

So you don't have to call anymore
I won't pick up the phone
This is the last straw
There's nothing left to beg for
And you can tell me that you're sorry
But I don't believe you baby
Like I did before
You're not sorry, no no no whoa-ah-oh
You're not sorry, no no no whoa-ah-oh

No, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Whoa-ah-oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh oh. oh-ah-oh
Oh, oh, oh, no, no
No, no-whoa-ah-oh, no

The Way I Loved You

The Way I Loved You
(John Rich, Taylor Swift)

He is sensible and so incredible
And all my single friends are jealous.
He says everything I need to hear
And itís like I couldnít ask for anything better.
He opens up my door and
I get into his car and he says
you look beautiful tonight.
And I feel perfectly fine.

But I miss screaminí and fightiní and kissiní in the rain
and its 2am and Iím cursiní your name.
Youíre so in love that you act insane
and thatís the way I loved you.
Breakiní down and cominí undone
itís a roller coaster kinda rush.
And I never knew I could feel that much.
And thatís the way I loved you.

He respects my space
And never makes me wait
And he calls exactly when he says he will.
Heís close to my mother
Talks business with my father.
Heís charming and endearing
And Iím comfortable.

But I miss screaminí and fightiní and kissiní in the rain
And itís 2am and Iím cursiní your name.
Youíre so in love that you act insane
And thatís the way I loved you.
Breakiní down and cominí undone
Itís a roller coaster kinda rush.
And I never knew I could feel that much.
And thatís the way I loved you.

He canít see the smile Iím fakiní.
And my hearts not breakiní
Cause Iím not feeliní anything at all.
And you were wild and crazy.
Just so frustrating, intoxicating, complicated,
got away like some mistake. And now

I miss screaminí, and fightiní, and kissiní in the rain
itís 2am and Iím cursiní your name.
Iím so in love that I acted insane.
And thatís the way I loved you.
Breakiní down and cominí undone
itís a roller coaster kinda rush.
And I never knew I could feel that much.
And thatís the way I loved you.

And thatís the way I loved you.
Never knew I could feel that much.
And thatís the way I loved you.

Forever & Always

Forever & Always
(Taylor Swift)

Once upon a time
I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye
We caught onto something,
I hold on to the night
You looked me in the eye and told me you loved me
Were you just kidding
Cause it seems to me
This thing is breaking down
We almost never speak
I donít feel welcome anymore,
Baby what happened please tell me
Cause one second it was perfect
Now youíre halfway out the door

And I stare at the phone, he still hasnít called
And you feel so low you canít feel nothin' at all
And you flash back to when he said forever and always
Ohh ohhh
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when youíre here and it rains when youíre gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always


Was I out of line?
Did I say something way too honest
That made you run and hide like a scared little boy
I looked into your eyes; thought I knew for a minute
Now Iím not so sure.
So hereís to everything
Coming down to nothing
Hereís to silence that cuts me to the core.
Where is this going?
Thought I knew for a minute
But I donít anymore.

And I stare at the phone, he still hasnít called
And you feel so low you canít feel nothin' at all
And you flash back to when he said forever and always
Ohh ohhh
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when youíre here and it rains when youíre gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always

You didnít mean it baby,
I donít think so
Ohhh ohhhh

Oh back up, baby back up,
Did you forget everything?
Back up, baby back up,
Did you forget everything?

Cause it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when youíre here and it rains when youíre gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always

Ohhh
I stare at the phone, he still hasnít called
And you feel so low you canít feel nothin' at all
And you flash back to when we said forever and always
And it rains in your bedroom
Everything is wrong
It rains when youíre here and it rains when youíre gone
Cause I was there when you said forever and always
You didnít mean it baby, you said forever and always, yeah

The Best Day

The Best Day
(Taylor Swift)

I'm five years old and it's getting cold
I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you
I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides
Look now the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop till I forgot all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day with you today

I have an excellent father
His strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out he's better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine and I didn't know if you knew
So I'm taking this chance to say that I had the best day with you today

Change

Change
(Taylor Swift)

It's a sad picture;
The final blow hits you
Somebody else gets what you wanted again,
You know it's all the same,
Another time and place,
Repeating history and you're getting sick of it

But I believe in whatever you do,
And I'll do anything to see it through...

Because these things will change,
Can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back
will fall down,
It's a revolution,
The time will come for us to finally win,
And we'll sing
Hallelujah
We'll sing
Hallelujah
Oh

So we've been outnumbered,
Threatened and now cornered,
It's hard to fight when the fight ain't fair,
We're getting stronger now,
find things they never found,
They might be bigger,
but we're faster and never scared.

You can walk away say "We don't need this"
But there's something in your eyes
says "We can beat this"

Because these things will change,
Can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down,
It's a revolution,
The time will come for us to finally win,
And we'll sing
Hallelujah
We'll sing
Hallelujah
Oh

Tonight we'll stand,
Get off our knees,
Fight for what we've worked for all these years,
and the battle was long,
It's the fight of our lives,
When we stand up,
Champions tonight

It was the night things changed,
Can you see it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back...fell down,
It's a revolution,
Throw your hands up,
'cause we never gave in,
And we'll sing
Hallelujah
We sang
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Yeah
