In the heat of the fight I walked away
Ignoring words that you were saying trying to make me stay
I said this time I've had enough
And you've called a hundred times but I'm not picking up

Cause I'm so mad I might tell you that it's over
But if you look a little closer

I said leave but all I really want is you
To stand outside my window throwing pebbles
Screaming I'm in love with you
Wait there in the pouring rain coming back for more
And don't you leave cause I know
All I need is on the other side of the door

Me and my stupid pride are sitting here alone
Going through the photographs, staring at the phone
I keep going back over things we both said
And I remember the slamming door
And all the things that I misread

So baby, if you know everything
Tell me why you couldn't see
When I left I wanted you to chase after me

I said leave but all I really want is you
To stand outside my window throwing pebbles
Screaming I'm in love with you
Wait there in the pouring rain coming back for more
And don't you leave cause I know
All I need is on the other side of the door

And I'll scream out the window
I can't even look at you
I don't need you
But I do, I do, I do
I'll say there's nothing you can say
To make this right again
I mean it, I mean it
What I mean is

I said leave, but baby all I want is you
To stand outside my window throwing pebbles
Screaming I'm in love with you
Wait there in the pouring rain coming back for more
And don't you leave cause I know
All I need is on the other side of the door

With your face and the beautiful eyes
And the conversation with the little white lies
And the faded picture of a beautiful night
You carried me from your car up the stairs
And I broke down crying, was she worth this mess
After everything and that little black dress
After everything I must confess
I need you

    But she wants him to do all of that after he cheated on her?! Taylor Swift is my favorite singer/ songwriter of all time and space and this is one of my favorite songs from her but if he cheated on her why would she want him to do all of these things? I know I wouldn't want to see the guys face again. I if the situation with him was anything but cheating, I think that last paragraph would be some of her best work.
    But aside from that I love the chorus! This is deffinately one of her best songs!

    It means that she is done trying to show her love to a man who doesn't return it and all she wants is him to prove to her that he loves her and wants to be with her. Like I want my ex to do this. I've done everything in my power to show him I'm in love with him and all he does is break my heart and if he wants me back he'll do what this song says to do:/

    This song expresses how pride can hurt us and the people we love. In the song, they might've fought over an issue of the guy cheating, but despite everything, she still loves the guy. She may not necessarily trust the guy anymore, but she loves him anyway. It's like, she screams out "Leave me alone!" but in her heart there's still a voice saying "Don't give up on me.. .": '(
