Taylor Swift's 10-Minute ‘All Too Well’ Lyrics Are Brutal to Ex Jake Gyllenhaal
“And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goes / I'll get older but your lovers stay my age.”
Redis about,” Swift told the outlet then. “He was like, ‘I just listened to the album, and that was a really bittersweet experience for me. It was like going through a photo album.’ That was nice. Nicer than, like, the ranting, crazy e-mails I got from this one dude. It’s a lot more mature way of looking at a love that was wonderful until it was terrible, and both people got hurt from it—but one of those people happened to be a songwriter.”

I walked through the door with you, the air was coldBut something 'bout it felt like home somehowAnd I left my scarf there at your sister's houseAnd you've still got it in your drawer, even nowOh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gaze headtopics.com
We're singing in the car, getting lost upstateAutumn leaves falling down like pieces into placeAnd I can picture it after all these daysPre-ChorusAnd I know it's long gone andThat magic's not here no moreAnd I might be okay, but I'm not fine at all
Oh, oh, oh'Causе there we arе again on that little town streetYou almost ran the red 'cause you were lookin' over at meWind in my hair, I was thereI remember it all too wellVerse 2Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning redYou used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed
And your mother's telling stories 'bout you on the tee-ball teamYou tell me 'bout your past, thinking your future was meAnd you were tossing me the car keys, fuck the patriarchyKey chain on the ground, we were always skipping townAnd I was thinking on the drive down, any time now
He's gonna say it's love, you never called it what it was'Til we were dead and gone and buriedCheck the pulse and come back swearing it's the sameAfter three months in the graveAnd then you wondered where it went to as I reached for you headtopics.com
But all I felt was shame and you held my lifeless framePre-ChorusAnd I know it's long gone andThere was nothing else I could doAnd I forget about you long enoughTo forget why I needed toChorus'Cause there we are again in the middle of the night
We're dancing 'round the kitchen in the refrigerator lightDown the stairs, I was thereI remember it all too wellAnd there we are again when nobody had to knowYou kept me like a secret but I kept you like an oathSacred prayer, and we'd swear
To remember it all too well, yeahBridgeWell maybe we got lost in translationMaybe I asked for too muchBut maybe this thing was a masterpiece'Til you tore it all upRunning scared, I was thereI remember it all too wellAnd you call me up againJust to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honestI'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here'Cause I remember it all, all, allVerse 3They say all's well that ends wellBut I'm in a new hell every time you double-cross my mindYou said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine headtopics.com
And that made me want to dieThe idea you had of me, who was she?A never-needy ever lovely jewel whose shine reflects on youNot weeping in a party bathroomSome actress asking me what happened, you, that's what happened, youYou who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes
Sipping coffee like you're on a late night showBut then he watched me watch the front door all night, willing you to comeAnd he said,"It's supposed to be fun turning twenty-one"ChorusTime won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find itAfter plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your ownNow you mail back my things and I walk home aloneBut you keep my old scarf from that very first week'Cause it reminds you of innocence and it smells like me
You can't get rid of it'Cause you remember it all too well, yeah'Cause there we are again when I loved you soBack before you lost the one real thing you've ever knownPost-ChorusIt was rare, I was thereI remember it all too wellWind in my hair, you were there
You remember it allDown the stairs, you were thereYou remember it allIt was rare, I was thereI remember it all too wellVerse 4And I was never good at telling jokes but the punch line goesI'll get older but your lovers stay my ageFrom when your Brooklyn broke my skin and bones
I'm a soldier who's returning half her weightAnd did the twin flame bruise paint you blue?Just between us, did the love affair maim you too?'Cause in this city's barren cold, I still remember the first fall of snowAnd how it glistened as it fell, I remember it all too well
OutroJust between us, did the love affair maim you all too well?Just between us, do you remember it all too well?Just between us, I remember it (Just between us) all too wellWind in my hair, I was there, I was thereDown the stairs, I was there, I was there
Sacred prayer, I was there, I was thereIt was rare, you remember it all too wellWind in my hair, I was there, I was thereDown the stairs, I was there, I was thereSacred prayer, I was there, I was thereIt was rare, you remember itWind in my hair, I was there, I was there
Down the stairs, I was there, I was thereSacred prayer, I was there, I was thereIt was rare, you remember itWind in my hair, I was there, I was thereDown the stairs, I was there, I was thereSacred prayer, I was there, I was thereIt was rare, you remember it
