  • Please picture me
    In the trees
    I hit my peak at seven feet
    In the swing
    Over the creek
    I was too scared to jump in
    But I, I was high in the sky
    With Pennsylvania under me
    Are there still beautiful things?

    Sweet tea in the summer
    Cross your heart, won't tell no other
    And though I can't recall your face
    I still got love for you
    Your braids like a pattern
    Love you to the moon and to Saturn
    Passed down like folk songs
    The love lasts so long

    And I've been meaning to tell you
    I think your house is haunted
    Your dad is always mad and that must be why
    And I think you should come live with
    Me and we can be pirates
    Then you won't have to cry
    Or hide in the closet
    And just like a folk song
    Our love will be passed on

    Please picture me
    In the weeds
    Before I learned civility
    I used to scream ferociously
    Any time I wanted
    I, I

    Sweet tea in the summer
    Cross my heart, won't tell no other
    And though I can't recall your face
    I still got love for you
    Pack your dolls and a sweater
    We'll move to India forever
    Passed down like folk songs
    Our love lasts so long Writer/s: Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor A. Swift
