Yeah
Woah

Taylor:
I know this isn't what I wanted
I never thought it'd come this far
Just thinkin' back to where we started
And how we lost all that we are.

Nick:
We were young and times were easy
But I could see it's not the same
I'm standing here but you don't see me
I'd give it all for that to change

And I don't want to lose her
Don't wanna let her go

Taylor:
I'm standing out in the rain
I need to know if it's over
Cause I will leave you alone
Nick:
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her
Both:
Like I did before the storm (yeah)
Before the storm

Nick:
With every strike of lightning
Taylor:
Comes a memory that lasts
Both:
And not a word is left unspoken
As the thunder starts to crash
Taylor:
Maybe I should give up.

Taylor:
I'm standing out in the rain
I need to know if it's over
Cause I will leave you alone
Nick:
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her
Like I did before the storm

Taylor:
Trying to keep the lights from going out
Both:
And the clouds from ripping out my broken heart
We always say,
A heart is not a whole
Without the one who gets you through the storm

Standin' out in the rain
Knowing that it's really over
Please don't leave me alone.
I'm flooded with all this pain,
Knowing that I'll never hold you
Like I did before the storm

Yeah
Like I did before,
The storm.

    excuse me guys, you make me laugh.. this song has no connection with Tswift at all, this is from the Jonas Brothers 4th studio album "Lines, Vines And Trying Times" and its actually featuring Miley Cyrus not Taylor.. Nick Jonas wrote this song for his relationship with Miley... its about their break up.. Taylor did not write this song at all...

    just sayin' :D

    I think this means that they both are really in love with eachother and they try to make it work before it all gets worse and they realize that they lost eachother and they are heart broken and they want eachother back.
