Taylor Swift - Mine

Taylor Swift is now my favourite singer.

I appreciate her songs more than others because she is also a songwriter who draws up inspiration from her own life, some which can relate to our own as well.

In her second album "Speak Now", there is this song called "Mine" which I can't stop playing over and over again. It talks about a girl who is afraid to go on a relationship due to her observations of her parents' mistakes, and how the guy manage to win her over and convince that this love of theirs is for real.





You were in college working part-time, waiting tables
Left a small town, never looked back
I was a flight risk, with a fear of falling
Wondering why we'd bother with love, if it never lasts

I say can you believe it
As we're lying on the couch
The moment I can see it
Yes, yes
I can see it now

Do you remember when we were sitting there by the water
You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Fast forward and we're taking on the world together
And there's a drawer of my things at your place
You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded
You say we'll never make my parent's mistakes

We got bills to pay
We got nothing figured out
When it was hard to take
Yes, yes
This is what I thought about

Do you remember when we sitting there by the water
You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Do you remember all the city lights on the water
You saw I started to believe for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

And I remember that fight til 2:30 am
You said everything was slipping out of our hands
I went out crying and you followed me out to the streets

Brace myself for the goodbye
Causes it's all i've ever known
When you took me by surprise
You said I never leave you alone

You said
I remember how we felt sitting by the water
And everytime I look at you it's like the first time
I fell in love with acareless man's careful daughter
She is the best thing that's ever been mine

Hold on
Make it last
Hold on
Never turn back

You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Yeah, do you believe it?
Gonna make it last
And I can see it
I can see it now
