Taylor Swift – Clean lyrics

[Verse:]
The drought was the very worst
When the flowers that we'd grown together died of
thirst
It was months and months of back-and-forth
You still all over me like a wine-stained dress I can't wear
anymore
Hum ahead as I lost the war
And the sky turned black like a perfect storm

[Chorus:]
Rain came pouring down
When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you
And I think I am finally
clean

[Verse 2:]
There was nothing left to do
When the butterflies turned to dust, they covered my whole room
So I punched a hole in the roof
Let the flood carry away all my pictures
of you
The water filled my lungs, I screamed so loud
But no one heard a thing

[Chorus:]

[Bridge:]
Ten months sober, I must admit
Just because you clean don't mean you don't miss it
Ten months older, I won't give in
Now that I'm clean, I'm never gonna risk it
The drought was the very worst
When the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst

[Chorus:]
Rain came pouring down
When I was drowning
, that's when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you
And I think I am finally clean

    This whole song is talking bout how shes getting over a break up. Its first goes how much it hurt then it goes to how she cried and sobbed and then finally she realized that he doesn't even matter. It took her some time to get over him but she finally did and she felt clean. She thought that she was going to drown but then she gets up and moves on. It took her 10 months to fully recover but now shes all better and will move on with her life.
