taylor swift - state of grace / you're on your own, kid lyrics


[part i: state of grace]

[verse 1]
i’m walkin’ fast through the traffic lights
busy streets and busy lives
and all we know is touch and go
we are alone with our changing minds
we fall in love ’til it hurts or bleeds or fades in time

and i never
saw you comin’
and i’ll never
be the same

[verse 2]
you come around and the armor falls
pierce the room like a cannonball
now all we know is don’t let go
we are alone, just you and me
up in your room and our slates are clean
just twin fire signs, four blue eyes

so you were never a saint and i loved in shades of wrong
we learn to live with the pain, mosaic broken hearts
but this love is brave and wild
and i never
saw you comin’
and i’ll never
be the same

this is a state of grace
this is the worthwhile fight
love is a ruthless game
unless you play it good and right
these are the hands of fate
you’re my achilles heel
this is the golden age of somethin’ good
and right and real

[part ii: you’re on your own, kid]

from sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
i gave my blood, sweat, and tears for this
i hosted parties and starved my body
like i’d be saved by a perfect kiss
the jokes weren’t funny, i took the money
my friends from home don’t know what to say
i looked around in a blood+soaked gown
and i saw something they can’t take away
’cause there were pages turned with the bridges burned
everything you lose is a step you take
so, make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it
you’ve got no reason to be afraid
you’re on your own, kid
yeah, you can face this
you’re on your own, kid
you always have been
