Swift – The Handshake lyrics

I feel what
The sharpest smile and the highest of friends
But when I see the cloud that you ride in on
You make my heart sink you make my chest feel sick
File me down so I'm not your mistake and
Bend me back
I can't take your word on this because it's all I have
Bend me back
I want my feet not to touch the floor
I've waited for you something is wrong
My hopes are in your briefcase
And all the dreams that I handed you
Only made it to your desk and never to your heart
I gave you my hand you chose to shake it
Forget it all I'm not your mistake
I've waited for you something is wrong
Turn me around turn me around again
It's common sense listen you cannot force love
And that's what this is this is trying to force something that's not here
You cannot change mind like ours
I can't fake for you I can't
I don't bleed this for you
I bleed this not for you
I trust this not your handshake
You feel what
