  • Never be so kind, you forget to be clever
    Never be so clever, you forget to be kind

    And if I didn't know better
    I'd think you were talking to me now
    If I didn't know better
    I'd think you were still around
    What died didn't stay dead
    What died didn't stay dead
    You're alive, you're alive in my head
    What died didn't stay dead
    What died didn't stay dead
    You're alive, so alive

    Never be so polite, you forget your power
    Never wield such power, you forget to be polite

    And if I didn't know better
    I'd think you were listening to me now
    If I didn't know better
    I'd think you were still around
    What died didn't stay dead
    What died didn't stay dead
    You're alive, you're alive in my head
    What died didn't stay dead
    What died didn't stay dead
    You're alive, so alive

    The autumn chill that wakes me up
    You loved the amber skies so much
    Long limbs and frozen swims
    You'd always go past where our feet could touch
    And I complained the whole way there
    The car ride back and up the stairs
    I should've asked you questions
    I should've asked you how to be
    Asked you to write it down for me
    Should've kept every grocery store receipt
    'Cause every scrap of you would be taken from me
    Watched as you signed your name Marjorie
    All your closets of backlogged dreams
    And how you left them all to me

    What died didn't stay dead
    What died didn't stay dead
    You're alive, you're alive in my head
    What died didn't stay dead
    What died didn't stay dead
    You're alive, so alive
    And if I didn't know better
    I'd think you were singing to me now
    If I didn't know better
    I'd think you were still around
    I know better
    But I still feel you all around
    I know better
    But you're still around Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Taylor A. Swift
