Tied Together With A Smile

Album: Taylor Swift (2006)
  • Seems the only one who doesn't see your beauty
    Is the face in the mirror looking back at you
    You walk around here thinking you're not pretty
    But that's not true 'cause I know you

    Hold on, baby; you're losing it
    The water's high, you're jumping into it
    And letting go, and no one knows
    That you cry; but you don't tell anyone
    That you might not be the golden one
    And you're tied together with a smile
    But you're coming undone

    I guess it's true that love was all you wanted
    'Cause you're givin' it away like it's extra change
    Hoping it will end up in his pocket
    But he leaves you out like a penny in the rain
    Oh, 'cause it's not his price to pay
    It's not his price to pay

    Hold on, baby; you're losing it
    The water's high, you're jumping into it
    And letting go, and no one knows
    That you cry; but you don't tell anyone
    That you might not be the golden one
    And you're tied together with a smile
    But you're coming undone

    Hold on, baby; you're losing it
    The water's high, you're jumping into it
    And letting go, and no one knows
    That you cry; but you don't tell anyone
    That you might not be the golden one
    And you're tied together with a smile
    But you're coming undone

    You're tied together with a smile
    But you're coming undone, oh
    Goodbye, baby
    With a smile, baby, baby Writer/s: LIZ ROSE, TAYLOR SWIFT
