Taylor Swift – Ours lyrics

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

    I felt like this song is dedicated to us. Many people were bashing at my crush. I see my crush shining and they're not. I hope my crush will never lose his fate. Even though he didn't see me the way I see him, it's ok maybe there is another girl that is for him :) People have no rights to judge him anyway :) He's kinda beautiful tho. People only thought that he is mean and boastful because of his strong looks. But I think inside, he's kind & gentleman :)

    This beautiful song is basically about the romantic love story between taylor swift and her guy, and how the whole world is against their relationship, but they still go on. It tells us to go for whatever we think is right, is best for ourselves and ignore how other people disagrees. And the fact that. Love, doesn't come easy so we have to treasure love and love :)
    I love taylor swift and "ours"!

    'its mine belong in' not 'mine belong and'. Btw the meaning is that this girl loves this guy and they always have people saying they aren't good together but the girl doesn't care what people say. When the other girls that dated they guy before try to flirt with him again the girl doesn't care because the guy says he never would give her up for them. Love this song. Perfect couple material.

    Its really hard when everyone is judging your relationship, they might say that he is not the best guy for you because you are educated but the guy just take a vocational degree, they will say all the negative thoughts about him, this song really encourage all relationship to be strong towards challenges. Always remember that smooth waters can't made you a skillful sailor so it should be rough as what the lyrics stated. Love the song it inspires me to hold on till the end!

    It's a story about a pretty couple whose relationship is judged wrong by everyone but they don't know how much the boy and the girl loves each other. When the boy loses all hope, the girl says that people are jealous and not to worry, everything will be okay soon.
    It's really true. How anyone can judge someone unknowingly? And who are they to judge? Just live and let live.
