my tears ricochet

作曲 : Taylor Swift
We gather here
We line up weeping in a sunlit room
And if I’m on fire
You’ll be made of ashes, too
Even on my worst day
Did I deserve, babe
All the hell you gave me?
Cause I loved you
I swear I loved you
Til my dying day
I didn’t have it in myself to go with grace
And you’re the hero flying around saving face
And if I’m dead to you why are you at the wake?
Cursing my name
Wishing I stayed
Look at how my tears ricochet
We gather stones
Never knowing what they’ll mean
Some to throw
Some to make a diamond ring
You know I didn’t want to
Have to haunt you
But what a ghostly scene
You wear the same jewels
That I gave you
As you bury me
I didn’t have it in myself to go with grace
Cause when I’d fight, you used to tell me I was brave
And if I’m dead to you why are you at the wake?
Cursing my name
Wishing I’d stayed
Look at how my tears ricochet
And I can go anywhere I want
Anywhere I want
Just not home
And you can aim for my heart, go for blood
But you would still miss me in your bones
And I still talk to you
When I’m screaming at the sky
And when you can’t sleep at night
you hear my stolen lullabies
I didn’t have it in myself to go with grace
And so the battleships will sink beneath the waves
You had to kill me, but it killed you just the same
Cursing my name
Wishing I stayed
You turned into your worst fears
And you’re
Tossing out blame
Drunk on this pain
Crossing out the good years
And you’re cursing my name
Wishing I stayed
Look at how my tears ricochet
