Taylor Swift – The Moment I Knew lyrics

The Moment I Knew
You should have been there, should have burst through the door, with that
‘baby I’m right here’ smile, and it would

Have felt like, a million little shining stars that just aligned.
And I would have been so happy…
Christmas lights glisten, I’ve got my eye on the door, just waiting for you
To walk in, but the time is ticking and

People ask me how I’ve been, as I comb back through my memory.

How you said you’d be here, you said you’d be here.

And it was like slow motion, standing there in my party dress, in red
Lipstick, with no-one to impress, and they’re

All laughing as I’m looking around the room, and there’s one thing missing…
And that was the moment I knew.

And the hours pass by, and I just want to be alone, but your close friends
Always seem to know when there’s

Something really wrong, so they follow me down the hall, and there in the
Bathroom I try not to fall apart, as the

Sinking feeling starts, and I say hopelessly… he said he’d be here.

And it was like slow motion, standing there in my party dress, in red
Lipstick, with no-one to impress, and they’re

All laughing and asking me all about you but there’s one thing missing…
And that was the moment I knew.

What do you say when tears are streaming down your face in front of
Everyone you know?

And what do you do when the one who means the most to you is the one who
Didn’t show?

You should have been here, and I would have been so happy.

And it was like slow motion, standing there in my party dress, in red
Lipstick, with no-one to impress, and they’re

All sitting around me singing ‘Happy Birthday To You’ and there’s one thing
Missing…and that was the moment I knew.

You called me later and said ‘I’m sorry I didn’t make it, ' and I said, ‘I’m
Sorry too. '

And that was the moment I knew…
