  • I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us
    How we met and the sparks flew instantly
    People would say, "they're the lucky ones"

    I used to know my place was a spot next to you
    Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
    'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on

    Oh, a simple complication
    Miscommunications lead to fall out
    So many things that I wish you knew
    So many walls up I can't break through

    Now I'm standing alone In a crowded room
    And we're not speaking and I'm dying to know
    Is it killing you like it's killing me yeah
    I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
    When it all broke down and the story of us
    Looks a lot like a tragedy now next chapter

    How'd we end up this way?
    See me nervously pulling at my clothes
    And trying to look busy
    And you're doing your best to avoid me
    I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us
    How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
    But you held your pride like you should have held me
    Oh, I'm scared to see the ending
    Why are we pretending this is nothing?
    I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
    I've never heard silence quite this loud

    Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
    And we're not speaking and I'm dying to know
    Is it killing you like it's killing me yeah
    I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
    When it all broke down and the story of us
    Looks a lot like a tragedy now

    This is looking like a contest
    Of who can act like they care less
    But I liked it better when you were on my side
    The battle's in your hands now
    But I would lay my armor down
    If you'd say you'd rather love than fight
    So many things that you wish I knew
    But the story of us might be ending soon

    Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
    And we're not speaking and I'm dying to know
    Is it killing you like it's killing me yeah
    I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
    When it all broke down and the story of us
    Looks a lot like a tragedy now, the end Writer/s: TAYLOR SWIFT
