Taylor Swift turns 32 today (December 12), and in honor of the hit songstress’ big day, we compiled our favorite lyrics by the queen of breakup songs.
"Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts / Flashbacks waking me up / I get drunk, but it's not enough / 'Cause the morning comes and you're not my baby."
"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."
"Don't treat me like / Some situation that needs to be handled / I'm fine with my spite / And my tears, and my beers and my candles."
"So it's gonna be forever / Or it's gonna go down in flames / You can tell me when it's over / If the high was worth the pain."
"The more I think about it now the less I know / All I know is that you drove us off the road."
"No apologies, he'll never see you cry / Pretends he doesn't know that he's the reason why / You're drowning, you're drowning, you're drowning."
"I wish you would come back / Wish I'd never hung up the phone like I did / I wish you knew that / I'd never forget you as long as I'd live."
"And you call me up again just to break me like a promise / So casually cruel in the name of being honest."
"Losing him was blue, like I'd never known / Missing him was dark gray, all alone / Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met / But loving him was red."
"And it's hard to be at a party / When I feel like an open wound / It's hard to be anywhere these days / When all I want is you."
"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."
"And I guess we fell apart in the usual way / And the story's got dust on every page / But sometimes I wonder how you think about it now / And I see your face in every crowd."
"And I can see us twisted in bedsheets / August sipped away like a bottle of wine / 'Cause you were never mine."
"And I stare at the phone, he still hasn't called / And then you feel so low you can't feel nothing at all / And you flashback to when he said, 'Forever and always.'"
"Didn't have it in myself to go with grace / And you're the hero flying around, saving face / And if I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake?"
"So watch me strike a match on all my wasted time / As far as I'm concerned, you're just another picture to burn."
"I think I've seen this film before / And I didn't like the ending / You're not my homeland anymore / So what am I defendin' now?"
"Your name on my lips, tongue tied / Free rent, livin' in my mind / But then something happened one magical night / I forgot that you existed."
"You got your share of secrets, and I'm tired of being last to know."
"I was a dreamer before you went and let me down."
