  • I spy with my little tired eye
    Tiny as a firefly
    A pebble that we picked up last July
    Down deep inside your pocket
    We almost forgot it
    Does it ever miss Wicklow sometimes?

    Ooh, ooh

    They said the end is comin'
    Everyone's up to somethin'
    I found myself a-runnin' home to your sweet nothings
    Outside they're push and shovin'
    You're in the kitchen hummin'
    All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothin'

    On the way home
    I wrote a poem
    You say, "What a mind"
    This happens all the time

    Ooh, ooh

    'Cause they said the end is comin'
    Everyone's up to somethin'
    I found myself a-runnin' home to your sweet nothings
    Outside they're push and shovin'
    You're in the kitchen hummin'
    All that you ever wanted from me was nothin'

    Industry disruptors
    And soul deconstructors
    And smooth-talking hucksters
    Out glad-handing each other
    And the voices that implore
    "You should be doing more"
    To you, I can admit
    That I'm just too soft for all of it

    Ooh

    They said the end is comin'
    Everyone's up to somethin'
    I found myself a-runnin' home to your sweet nothings
    Outside they're push and shovin'
    You're in the kitchen hummin'
    All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothin'
    They said the end is comin' (they said the end is comin')
    Everyone's up to somethin' (everyone's up to somethin')
    I found myself a-runnin' home to your sweet nothings
    Outside they're push and shovin' (outside they're push and shovin')
    You're in the kitchen hummin' (you're in the kitchen hummin')
    All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothin' Writer/s: Taylor Swift, William Bowery
