Taylor Swift – Mine lyrics

You were in college working part time waiting tables
Left the small town, never looked back
I was a flight risk with a fear of falling
Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts
I say can you believe it?
As we're lying on the couch
The moment I can see it
Yes, yes, I can see it now

Do you remember we were sitting there by the water?
You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Flash forward and we're taking on the world together
And there's a drawer of my things at your place
You learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded
You said we'll never make my parents' mistakes
But we got bills to pay
We got nothing figured out
When it was hard to take
Yes, yes, this is what I thought about

Do you remember we were sitting there by the water?
You put your arm around me for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Do you remember all the city lights on the water?
You saw me start to believe for the first time
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine

Oh oh ohh
And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m.
As everything was slipping right out of our hands
And I ran out crying and you followed me out into the streets
Braced myself for the goodbye
'Cause that's all I've ever known
And you took me by surprise
You said I'll ever leave you alone

You said
I remember how we felt sitting by the water
And every time I look at you, it's like the first time
I fell in love with a careless man's careful daughter
She is the best thing that's ever been mine

(Hold on, make it last)
(Hold on, never turn back)
You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine
(Yes, yes), Do you believe it?
(Yes, yes), We're gonna make it now
(Yes, yes) and I can see it
I can see it now

    I think this your best song yet it accually sends a message. The message is why do we bother with love if it never last? Because it never does. If people open their eyes to their family and besties 4life that's love not love for someone you barely meet its weird when you say you love someone and you barely even meet them. I did that to one of my ex and let me just say it didn't go as I wanted it 2 and most of the time I still think of him and I still love him or that's what I think.

    This song is about a girl whose parents divorced (probably because her dad was "careless") so she didn't really believe in love because of that. She was really careful but then she meets a boy and he made her into a rebel, he made her believe in love for the first time. And he is the best thing that's ever been hers. But when they have a fight, she thinks its falling apart and she runs out crying, thinking its goodbye. But then he follows her and tells her that he'll never leave her alone. And that shes the best thing that's ever been his.

    The song describes my relationship with my boyfriend. He is my rock at times. For example, the fight in the song is similar to one he and I had last night. I can't even remember what it was about but I remember thinking that it had to have been over, he wouldn't want me now. I said that to him and he said that it hasn't happened yet and its not going to tonight. I thought I lost my love and my best friend but he's still all mine. The song is about couples like he and I, the ones who aren't just lovers, but best friends too. The kind that can make it through the worst of things, but only through God Almighty. I'm blessed to have him and I hope and pray that every girl find their best man and every guy find his best woman! God bless!

    How things happened for others is not necessarily the way it will happen for you. It all depends on how important something is to you. In this song, taylor swift's relationship was so important to her and they both saw it as something worth fighting for. Love isn't perfect, it has it's problems, but if it's really worth it to the people, those imperfections won't matter, they'll make it even more perfect!

    Easy. There's a girl that's scared that love doesn't last, as she saw her parents fight all the time. Then she falls in love with a boy, and she's scared that their love will fall apart the same way her parents' love did. Then her and the boy she loves have an argument, and she's bracing herself for him to leave her. But he doesn't. He tells her he won't leave her, and she stops worrying that he'll leave her.
