  • "Your ex-friend's sister
    Met someone at a club and he kissed her
    Turns out it was that guy you hooked up with ages ago
    Some wannabe Z-lister
    And all the outfits were terrible
    2003 unbearable
    Did you see the photos?"
    No, I didn't, but thanks, though

    I'm so in love that I might stop breathing
    Drew a map on your bedroom ceiling
    No, I didn't see the news
    'Cause we were somewhere else
    Stumbled down pretend alleyways
    Cheap wine, make believe it's champagne
    I was taken by the view

    Like we were in Paris
    Like we were somewhere else
    Like we were in Paris, oh
    We were somewhere else

    Privacy sign on the door
    And on my page and on the whole world
    Romance is not dead if you keep it just yours
    Levitate above all the messes made
    Sit quiet by my side in the shade
    And not the kind that's thrown
    I mean, the kind under where a tree has grown

    I'm so in love that I might stop breathing
    Drew a map on your bedroom ceiling
    No, I didn't see the news
    'Cause we were somewhere else
    Stumbled down pretend alleyways
    Cheap wine, make believe it's champagne
    I was taken by the view

    Like we were in Paris, oh
    Like we were somewhere else
    Like we were in Paris, oh
    We were somewhere else

    I wanna brainwash you
    Into loving me forever
    I wanna transport you
    To somewhere the culture's clever
    Confess my truth
    In swooping, sloping, cursive letters
    Let the only flashing lights be the tower at midnight
    In my mind

    We drew a map on your bedroom ceiling
    No, I didn't see the news
    'Cause we were somewhere else
    In an alleyway, drinking champagne

    'Cause we were in Paris
    Yes, we were somewhere else
    My love, we were in Paris
    Yes, we were somewhere else Writer/s: Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor Alison Swift
