Elevator buttons and morning air
Strangers' silence makes me wanna take the stairs
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares
But right now, my time is theirs

Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury's out, but my choice is you

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard

The stakes are high
The waters rough
But this love is ours

You never know what people have up their sleeves
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
But I don't care, cause right now you're mine

And you'll say don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high
The waters rough
But this love is ours

And it's not theirs to speculate
If it's wrong and your hands are tough but they are where mine belong and
I'll fight their doubt and give you faith with this song for you

Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
Cause my heart is yours

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
But they can't take what's ours
They can't take what's ours
The stakes are high
The waters rough
But this love is ours

    That you should never let others tell you how you should feel about someone and that as long as your happy to be with someone then you should be with that person and not who others thing you should be with.

    Love is a gift of god... That no one can give more than the love of god: ) maybe we can share our love for those who need... It because some people doesn't care about love and don't know what is the meaning of love! So taylor swift say's that "the love is ours" share it... : )

    Taylor's words of wisdom: life makes love look hard
    Do i agree? : certainly
    My opinion: i like this song it tells a nice story. It has a great meaning too. Taylor puts her stories in a song and adds a meaning to it about love normally which is one of the things why i love her. Life does make love look hard at times but you have to keep your head up and move on and one day, when you find that special someone you won't regret it.
