'Tis the Damn Season

  • If I wanted to know
    Who you were hanging with
    While I was gone, I would've asked you
    It's the kind of cold
    Fogs up windshield glass
    But I felt it when I passed you
    There's an ache in you
    Put there by the ache in me
    But if it's all the same to you
    It's the same to me

    So we could call it even
    You could call me "Babe" for the weekend
    'Tis the damn season
    Write this down
    I'm staying at my parents' house
    And the road not taken looks real good now
    And it always leads to you and my hometown

    I parked my car
    Right between the Methodist and the school that used to be ours
    The holidays linger like bad perfume
    You can run but only so far
    I escaped it too
    Remember how you watched me leave
    But if it's okay with you
    It's okay with me

    We could call it even
    You could call me "Babe" for the weekend
    'Tis the damn season
    Write this down
    I'm staying at my parents' house
    And the road not taken looks real good now
    Time flies
    Messy as the mud on your truck tires
    Now I'm missing your smile, hear me out
    We could just ride around
    And the road not taken looks real good now
    And it always leads to you and my hometown

    Sleep in half the day
    Just for old times' sake
    I won't ask you to wait
    If you don't ask me to stay
    So I'll go back to LA
    And the so-called friends who'll write books about me if I ever make it
    And wonder about the only soul who can tell which smiles I'm faking
    And the heart I know I'm breaking is my own
    To leave the warmest bed I've ever known

    We could call it even
    Even though I'm leaving
    And I'll be yours for the weekend
    'Tis the damn season

    We could call it even
    You could call me "Babe" for the weekend
    'Tis the damn season
    Write this down
    I'm staying at my parents' house
    And the road not taken looks real good now
    Time flies
    Messy as the mud on your truck tires
    Now I'm missing your smile, hear me out
    We could just ride around
    And the road not taken looks real good now
    And it always leads to you and my hometown
    It always leads to you and my hometown Writer/s: Aaron Brooking Dessner, Taylor A. Swift
