  • I tapped on your window on your darkest night
    The shape of you was jagged and weak
    There was nowhere for me to stay
    But I stayed anyway
    And if I would've known
    How many pieces you had crumbled into
    I might've let them lay

    Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
    And let all your damage damage me
    And carry your baggage up my street
    And make me your future history
    It's time, you've come a long way
    Open the blinds, let me see your face
    You wouldn't be the first renegade
    To need somebody

    Is it insensitive for me to say
    Get your shit together?
    So I can love you
    Is it really your anxiety
    That stops you from giving me everything?
    Or do you just not want to?

    I tapped on your window on your darkest night
    The shape of you was jagged and weak
    There was nowhere for me to stay
    But I stayed anyway
    You fire off missiles 'cause you hate yourself
    But do you know you're demolishing me?
    And then you squeeze my hand as I'm about to leave

    Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
    Let all your damage damage me
    And carry your baggage up my street
    And make me your future history
    It's time, you've come a long way
    Open the blinds, let me see your face
    You wouldn't be the first renegade
    To need somebody

    Is it insensitive for me to say
    Get your shit together?
    So I can love you
    Is it really your anxiety
    That stops you from giving me everything?
    Or do you just not want to?

    And if I would've known
    How sharp the pieces were you'd crumbled into
    I might've let them lay

    Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
    And let all your damage damage me
    And carry your baggage up my street
    And make me your future history
    It's time, you've come a long way
    Open the blinds, let me see your face
    You wouldn't be the first renegade
    To need somebody

    To need somebody
    To need somebody
    To need somebody
    To need somebody

    (Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?)
    Is it insensitive for me to say (let all your damage damage me)
    Get your shit together? (carry your baggage up my street)
    So I can love you (and make me your future history)
    (It's time, you've come a long way) is it really your anxiety
    (Open the blinds, let me see your face) that stops you from giving me everything
    (You wouldn't be the first renegade to need somebody)
    Or do you just not want to? Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Taylor A. Swift
