Begin Again

Begin Again
Taylor Swift
 
Took a deep breath in the mirror.
He didn’t like it when I wore high heels but I do.
Turn the lock and put my headphones on.
He always said he didn’t get this song but I do.
I do.

Walked in expecting you’d be late.
But you got here early and you stand and wait.
I walk to you.
You pull my chair out and help me in.
And you don’t know how nice that is but I do.

And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid.
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause he never did.
I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking,
All love ever does is break and burn and end.
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again.

You say you never met one girl who had as many James Taylor records as you. But I do.
We tell stories and you don’t know why I’m coming off a little shy but I do.

And we walk down the block to my car and I almost brought him up.
But you start to talk about the movies that your family watches,

Every single Christmas and I will talk about that for the first time.
What’s past is past.

Cause you throw your head back laughing like a little kid.
I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause he never did.
I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking,
All love ever does is break and burn and end.
But on a Wednesday in a cafe I watched it begin again.

But on a Wednesday, in a cafe… I watched it begin again.

This song is beautiful.  I feel hopeful.  I feel sad.  But I am hopeful that one day there will be that person who will pull that chair back for me. One day, I’ll watch it all begin again for me.  🙂
