  • Looking at it now, all seems so simple
    We were lying on your couch, I remember
    You took a Polaroid of us, then discovered
    The rest of the world was black and white
    But we were in screaming color
    And I remember thinking

    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we in, are we in the clear yet, girl?

    Looking at it now, last December
    We were built to fall apart, then fall back together
    Your necklace hanging from my neck
    The night we couldn't forget, when we decided
    To move the furniture so we could dance
    Like we stood a chance
    Two paper airplanes flying, flying, flying

    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we in, are we in the clear yet, girl?

    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we in, are we in the clear yet, girl?

    I remember when you hit the brakes too soon
    Twenty stitches in a hospital room
    When you started crying, baby, I did too
    But when the sun came up, was looking at you
    Remember when we couldn't take the heat?
    I walked out and said "I'm setting you free"
    But the monsters turned out to be just trees
    And when the sun came up, you were looking at me

    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we in, are we in, are we in the clear yet, girl?

    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we out, are we out, are we out of the woods?
    Are we in, are we in, are we in the clear yet, girl? Writer/s: Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor Swift
