New Year's Day

Album: Reputation (2017)
  • There's glitter on the floor after the party
    Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby
    Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor
    You and me from the night before but

    Don't read the last page
    But I stay when you're lost and I'm scared and you're turning away
    I want your midnights
    But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day

    You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi
    I can tell that it's going to be a long road
    I'll be there if you're the toast of the town babe
    Or if you strike out and you're crawling home

    Don't read the last page
    But I stay when it's hard or it's wrong or you're making mistakes
    I want your midnights
    But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day

    Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
    Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
    Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
    And I will hold on to you

    Please don't ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere
    Please don't ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere

    There's glitter on the floor after the party
    Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby
    Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor
    You and me forevermore

    Don't read the last page
    But I stay when it's hard or it's wrong or we're making mistakes
    I want your midnights
    But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day

    Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
    Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
    Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
    And I will hold on to you

    Please don't ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere
    Please don't ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere Writer/s: Taylor Swift, Jack Antonoff
