  • Mr. "Perfect face"
    Mr. "Here to stay"
    Mr. "Looked me in the eye and told me you would never go away"
    Everything was right
    Mr. "I've been waiting for you all my life"
    Mr. "Every single day until the end, I will be by your side"

    But that was when I got to know Mr. "Change of heart"
    Mr. "Leaves me all alone," I fall apart
    It takes everything in me just to get up each day
    But it's wonderful to see that you're okay

    Hello Mr. "Perfectly fine"
    How's your heart after breaking mine?
    Mr. "Always at the right place at the right time," baby
    Hello Mr. "Casually cruel"
    Mr. "Everything revolves around you"
    I've been Miss "Misery" since your goodbye
    And you're Mr. "Perfectly fine"

    Mr. "Never told me why"
    Mr. "Never had to see me cry"
    Mr. "Insincere apology so he doesn't look like the bad guy"
    He goes about his day
    Forgets he ever even heard my name
    Well, I thought you might be different than the rest
    I guess you're all the same

    'Cause I hear he's got his arm 'round a brand-new girl
    I've been pickin' up my heart, he's been pickin' up her
    And I never got past what you put me through
    But it's wonderful to see that it never phased you

    Hello Mr. "Perfectly fine"
    How's your heart after breakin' mine?
    Mr. "Always at the right place at the right time," baby
    Hello Mr. "Casually cruel"
    Mr. "Everything revolves around you"
    I've been Miss "Misery" since your goodbye
    And you're Mr. "Perfectly fine"

    So dignified in your well-pressed suit
    So strategized, all the eyes on you
    Sashay away to your seat
    It's the best seat, in the best room
    Oh, he's so smug, Mr. "Always wins"
    So far above me in every sense
    So far above feeling anything

    And it's really such a shame
    It's such a shame
    'Cause I was Miss "Here to stay"
    Now I'm Miss "Gonna be alright someday"
    And someday maybe you'll miss me
    But by then, you'll be Mr. "Too late"

    Goodbye Mr. "Perfectly fine"
    How's your heart after breakin' mine?
    Mr. "Always at the right place at the right time," baby
    Goodbye Mr. "Casually cruel"
    Mr. "Everything revolves around you"
    I've been Miss "Misery" for the last time
    And you're Mr. "Perfectly fine"
    You're perfectly fine
    Mr. "Look me in the eye and told me you would never go away"
    You said you'd never go away Writer/s: Taylor Swift
