Charted: 61
  • How's one to know?
    I'd meet you where the spirit meets the bones
    In a faith forgotten land
    In from the snow
    Your touch brought forth an incandescent glow
    Tarnished but so grand

    And the old widow goes to the stone every day
    But I don't, I just sit here and wait
    Grieving for the living

    Oh, goddamn
    My pain fits in the palm of your freezing hand
    Taking mine, but it's been promised to another
    Oh, I can't
    Stop you putting roots in my dreamland
    My house of stone, your ivy grows
    And now I'm covered in you

    I wish to know
    The fatal flaw that makes you long to be
    Magnificently cursed
    He's in the room
    Your opal eyes are all I wish to see
    He wants what's only yours

    Oh, goddamn
    My pain fits in the palm of your freezing hand
    Taking mine, but it's been promised to another
    Oh, I can't
    Stop you putting roots in my dreamland
    My house of stone, your ivy grows
    And now I'm covered

    Clover blooms in the fields
    Spring breaks loose, the time is near
    What would he do if he found us out?
    Crescent moon, coast is clear
    Spring breaks loose, but so does fear
    He's gonna burn this house to the ground

    How's one to know?
    I'd live and die for moments that we stole
    On begged and borrowed time
    So tell me to run
    Or dare to sit and watch what we'll become
    And drink my husband's wine

    Oh, goddamn
    My pain fits in the palm of your freezing hand
    Taking mine, but it's been promised to another
    Oh, I can't
    Stop you putting roots in my dreamland
    My house of stone, your ivy grows
    And now I'm covered in you
    And I'm covered in you

    So yeah, it's a fire
    It's a goddamn blaze in the dark
    And you started it
    You started it
    So yeah, it's a war
    It's the goddamn fight of my life
    And you started it
    You started it

    Oh, I can't
    Stop you putting roots in my dreamland
    My house of stone, your ivy grows
    And now I'm covered
    In you
    In you, you
    Now I'm covered in you
    In you Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor A. Swift
