Taylor Swift Mine Lyrics

Taylor Swift Mine Lyrics: This song puts together a lot of the wise ahead of her years actions of song technique that mark her as a bright pop artist: The ready for duet personalization use of an hazy you rather than a name; the parallelism that makes a song attractive to both the you and I; the ear for playful hooks like “I was a flight risk with a fear of falling” and “careless man’s careful daughter”; the detail of the verses, which paint brilliant portraits of being young and in love; the knowledge that “You are the best thing / That’s ever been mine” needs that space in the middle; the pacing of the beautiful, climactic bridge into the last hook; the sense to change that last use of the hook so the paramour can sing; and the confidence to let an echoed “(Hold on)” anchor the outro when it hadn’t been used before.

I don’t know how much of this is her and how much is other Nashville pros, but that it could probably be Swift alone speaks volumes about her talent as a songwriter. And, it should be noted, her ability as the banker of these precious-as-a-music-box stories has grown by leap and bounds. If Taylor Swift can mature and change as her generation does, that generation—my generation—will remember her as its leading music maker.

I’m not posting the MP3 because Taylor’s label is the sort to be employing alphabet boys, but this is well worth snagging from iTunes or Googling.

 Mine Lyrics by Taylor Swift

Oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh

You were in college, workin’ part time, waitin’ tables
Left a small town, never looked back
I was a flight risk, with a fear of fallin’
Wonderin’ why we bother with love if it never lasts

I say, “Can you believe it?”
As we’re lyin’ on the couch
The moment I could see it
Yes, yes, I can see it now

You remember, we were sittin’ 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

Flash forward and we’re takin’ 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 parents’ mistakes

But we got bills to pay
We got nothin’ figured out
When it was hard to take
Yes, yes, this is what I thought about

You remember, we were sittin’ 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 me start 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

Oh-oh-oh

And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m.
You said ‘verything was slippin’ right out of our hands
I ran out cryin’, and you followed me out into the street

Braced myself for the goodbye
‘Cause that’s all I’ve ever known
Then you took me by surprise
You said, “I’ll never leave you alone”

You said, “I remember how we felt sittin’ by the water
And every time I look at you, it’s like the first time
I fell in love with a careless man’s careful daughter
She is the best thing that’s ever been mine”

(Hold on, we’ll make it last)
(Hold on, never turn back)
(Hold on) You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter
(Hold on) You are the best thing that’s ever been mine

(Hold on) Do you believe it?
(Hold on) We’re gonna make it now
(Hold on) And I can see it
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) (I can see it now)
