  • 3 AM and I'm still awake, I'll bet you're just fine
    Fast asleep in your city that's better than mine
    And the girl in your bed has a fine pedigree
    And I'll bet your friends tell you she's better than me, huh

    Well, I tried to fit in with your upper-crust circles
    Yeah, they let me sit in back when we were in love
    Oh, they sit around talkin' 'bout the meaning of life
    And the book that just saved 'em that I hadn't heard of

    But now that we're done and it's over
    I bet you couldn't believe
    When you realized I'm harder to forget than I was to leave
    And I bet you think about me

    You grew up in a silver-spoon gated community
    Glamorous, shiny, bright Beverly Hills
    I was raised on a farm, no, it wasn't a mansion
    Just livin' room dancin' and kitchen table bills

    But you know what they say, you can't help who you fall for
    And you and I fell like an early spring snow
    But reality crept in, you said we're too different
    You laughed at my dreams, rolled your eyes at my jokes

    Mr. Superior Thinkin'
    Do you have all the space that you need?
    I don't have to be your shrink to know that you'll never be happy
    And I bet you think about me

    I bet you think about me, yes
    I bet you think about me

    Oh, block it all out
    The voices so loud, sayin'
    "Why did you let her go?"
    Does it make you feel sad
    That the love that you're lookin' for
    Is the love that you had

    Now you're out in the world, searchin' for your soul
    Scared not to be hip, scared to get old
    Chasin' make-believe status, last time you felt free
    Was when none of that shit mattered 'cause you were with me

    But now that we're done and it's over
    I bet it's hard to believe
    But it turned out I'm harder to forget than I was to leave
    And, yeah, I bet you think about me

    I bet you think about me, yes
    I bet you think about me

    I bet you think about me when you're out
    At your cool indie music concerts every week
    I bet you think about me in your house
    With your organic shoes and your million-dollar couch
    I bet you think about me when you say
    "Oh my God, she's insane, she wrote a song about me"
    I bet you think about me Writer/s: Lori McKenna, Taylor Alison Swift
