False God

  • We were crazy to think
    Crazy to think that this could work
    Remember how I said I'd die for you?
    We were stupid to jump
    In the ocean separating us
    Remember how I'd fly to you?

    And I can't talk to you when you're like this
    Staring out the window like I'm not your favorite town
    I'm New York City
    I still do it for you, babe
    They all warned us about times like this
    They say the road gets hard and you get lost
    When you're led by blind faith
    Blind faith

    But we might just get away with it
    Religion's in your lips
    Even if it's a false god
    We'd still worship
    We might just get away with it
    The altar is my hips
    Even if it's a false god
    We'd still worship this love
    We'd still worship this love
    We'd still worship this love

    I know heaven's a thing
    I go there when you touch me, honey
    Hell is when I fight with you
    But we can patch it up good
    Make confessions and we're begging for forgiveness
    Got the wine for you

    And you can't talk to me when I'm like this
    Daring you to leave me just so I can try and scare you
    You're the West Village
    You still do it for me, babe
    They all warned us about times like this
    They say the road gets hard and you get lost
    When you're led by blind faith
    Blind faith

    But we might just get away with it
    Religion's in your lips
    Even if it's a false god
    We'd still worship
    We might just get away with it
    The altar is my hips
    Even if it's a false god
    We'd still worship this love
    We'd still worship this love
    We'd still worship this love, hmm

    Still worship this love
    Even if it's a false god
    Even if it's a false god
    Still worship this love Writer/s: Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift
