August

Album: Folklore (2020)
Charted: 23
  • Salt air
    And the rust on your door
    I never needed anything more
    Whispers
    Of "Are you sure?"
    "Never have I ever before"

    But I can see us
    Lost in the memory
    August slipped away into a moment in time
    'Cause it was never mine
    And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
    August sipped away
    Like a bottle of wine
    'Cause you were never mine

    Your back
    Beneath the sun
    Wishing I could write my name on it
    Will you call when you're back at school?
    I remember thinking I had you

    But I can see us
    Lost in the memory
    August slipped away into a moment in time
    'Cause it was never mine
    And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
    August sipped away
    Like a bottle of wine
    'Cause you were never mine

    Back when we were still changing for the better
    Wanting was enough
    For me, it was enough
    To live for the hope of it all
    Cancel plans just in case you'd call
    And say "Meet me behind the mall"
    So much for summer love, and saying "Us"
    'Cause you weren't mine to lose
    You weren't mine to lose
    No

    But I can see us
    Lost in the memory
    August slipped away into a moment in time
    'Cause it was never mine
    And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
    August sipped away
    Like a bottle of wine
    'Cause you were never mine, mine

    'Cause you were never mine
    Never mine
    Do you remember?
    Remember when I pulled up
    And said "Get in the car"
    And then canceled my plans
    Just in case you'd call
    Back when I was living for the hope of it all
    For the hope of it all
    "Meet me behind the mall"

    (Remember when I pulled up)
    (And said "Get in the car")
    (And then canceled my plans)
    (Just in case you'd call)
    (Back when I was living for the hope of it all)
    (For the hope of it all)
    ("Meet me behind the mall")

    Remember when I pulled up
    And said "Get in the car"
    And then canceled my plans
    Just in case you'd call
    Back when I was living for the hope of it all
    (For the hope of it all)
    For the hope of it all
    For the hope of it all
    For the hope of it all
    For the hope of it all Writer/s: Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor A. Swift
