  • I'm doing good, I'm on some new shit
    Been saying "Yes" instead of "No"
    I thought I saw you at the bus stop, I didn't though

    I hit the ground running each night
    I hit the Sunday matinee
    You know the greatest films of all time were never made

    I guess you never know, never know
    And if you wanted me, you really should've showed
    And if you never bleed, you're never gonna grow
    And it's alright now

    But we were something, don't you think so?
    Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
    And if my wishes came true
    It would've been you
    In my defense, I have none
    For never leaving well enough alone
    But it would've been fun
    If you would've been the one (ooh)

    I have this dream you're doing cool shit
    Having adventures on your own
    You meet some woman on the Internet and take her home
    We never painted by the numbers, baby
    But we were making it count
    You know the greatest loves of all time are over now

    I guess you never know, never know
    And it's another day, waking up alone

    But we were something, don't you think so?
    Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
    And if my wishes came true
    It would've been you
    In my defense, I have none
    For never leaving well enough alone
    But it would've been fun
    If you would've been the one

    Hey, yeah-yeah
    Persist and resist the temptation to ask you
    If one thing had been different
    Would everything be different today?

    We were something, don't you think so?
    Rosé flowing with your chosen family
    And it would've been sweet
    If it could've been me
    In my defense, I have none
    For digging up the grave another time
    But it would've been fun
    If you would've been the one (ooh) Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Taylor A. Swift
