Speak Now

Speak Now
(Taylor Swift)

I am not the kind of girl who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion
But you are not the kind of boy who should be marrying the wrong girl
I sneak in and see your friends, and her snotty little family all dressed in pastel
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
Somewhere back inside a room wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

This is surely not what you thought it would be
I lose myself in a daydream where I stand and say

Don't say yes, run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door
Don't wait or say a single vow
You need to hear me out
And they said speak now

Fond gestures are exchanged
And the organ starts to play a song that sounds like a death march
And I am hiding in the curtains
It seems that I was uninvited by your lovely bride-to-be
She floats down the aisle like a pageant queen
But I know you wish it was me
Youu wish it was me, don't you?

(Ooh) Don't say yes, run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door (ooh)
Don't wait or say a single vow
You need to hear me out
And they said speak now
(Ooh) Don't say yes, run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door (ooh)
Don't wait or say a single vow (Say a single vow...)
Your time is running out
And they said speak now

Ooh (Run away now...), la, ah, ah, ah, oh
Ooh, (Say a single vow...) ooh

I hear the preacher say speak now or forever hold your peace
There's the silence, there's my last chance
I stand up with shaking hands
All eyes on me
Horrified looks from everyone in the room
But I'm only looking at you

I am not the kind of girl who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion
But you are not the kind of boy who should be marrying the wrong girl (Laughs)

(Ooh) So don't say yes, run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door (ooh)
Don't wait or say a single vow
You need to hear me out
Said speak now
And you say let's run away now (Run away now...)
I'll meet when I'm out of my tux at the back door (ooh)
Baby, I didn't say my vows (Say a single vow...)
So glad you were around
When they said "Speak now"
