  • My love was as cruel as the cities I lived in
    Everyone looked worse in the light
    There are so many lines that I've crossed, unforgiven
    I'll tell you truth, but never, "Goodbye"

    I don't wanna look at anything else now that I saw you
    I don't wanna think of anything else now that I thought of you
    I've been sleepin' so long in a twenty-year dark night
    And now I see daylight, I only see daylight

    Luck of the draw only draws the unlucky
    And so I became the butt of the joke
    I wounded the good and I trusted the wicked
    Clearin' the air, I breathed in the smoke

    Maybe you ran with the wolves and refused to settle down
    Maybe I've stormed out of every single room in this town
    Threw out our cloaks and our daggers because it's morning now
    It's brighter now, now

    I don't wanna look at anything else now that I saw you
    (I can never look away)
    I don't wanna think of anything else now that I thought of you
    (Things will never be the same)
    I've been sleepin' so long in a twenty-year dark night
    (Now I'm wide awake)
    And now I see daylight (daylight)
    I only see daylight (daylight)

    I only see daylight, daylight, daylight, daylight
    I only see daylight, daylight, daylight, daylight

    And I can still see it all (in my mind)
    All of you, all of me (intertwined)
    I once believed love would be (black and white)
    But it's golden (golden)
    And I can still see it all (in my head)
    Back and forth from New York (sneakin' in your bed)
    I once believed love would be (burnin' red)
    But it's golden
    Like daylight
    Like daylight
    Like daylight
    Daylight

    I don't wanna look at anything else now that I saw you
    (I can never look away)
    I don't wanna think of anything else now that I thought of you
    (Things will never be the same)
    I've been sleepin' so long in a twenty-year dark night
    (Now I'm wide awake)
    And now I see daylight (I see daylight)
    I only see daylight (oh)

    I only see daylight, daylight, daylight, daylight
    I only see daylight, daylight, daylight, daylight
    I only see daylight, daylight, daylight, daylight (and I can still see it all)
    (Back and forth from New York)
    I only see daylight, daylight, daylight, daylight (I once believed love would be burnin' red)

    Like daylight
    It's golden
    Like daylight
    You gotta step into the daylight and let it go
    Just let it go
    Let it go

    "I wanna be defined by the things that I love
    Not the things I hate
    Not the things I'm afraid of, I'm afraid of
    The things that haunt me in the middle of the night, I
    I just think that you are what you love" Writer/s: Taylor Swift
