Taylor Swift – Cold As You lyrics

You have a way of coming easily to me
And when you take, you take the very best of me
So I start a fight cause I need to feel something
And you do what you want cause I'm not what you wanted


Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day
Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say
And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through
I've never been anywhere cold as you

You put up walls and paint them all a shade of gray
And I stood there loving you and wished them all away
And you come away with a great little story
Of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you

Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day
So Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say
And now that I'm sitting here thinking it through
I've never been anywhere cold as you

You never did give a damn thing honey but I cried, cried for you
And I know you wouldn't have told nobody if I died, died for you, died for you

Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day
Oh Every smile you fake is so condescending
Counting all the scars you made

Now that I'm sittin here thinkin it all though
I've never been anywhere as cold as you

    I agree with you for sure. Like my most recent ex cheated on me. And is now dating this other girl but he still talks to me like he wants me back but then I see them two together. I miss him so muchh. It breaks my heart every time I see him. It is always so awkward when I see him in the halls because I'm best friends with his twinn brother and his older sister. And because of me they all hate him.

    It's "no need to fit in words that you would never say".
    But anyways, as far as the meaning goes. It's obvious in the beginning - She starts fights with him for not showing her any love or affection, when it's because he's off cheating on her. And she thinks it's sad, that a perfect time in her life ended off with so many tears and grey days. And she's saying that he was a waste - never did anything, never will do anything.

    I love this song. It reminds me of my dad. I love him so much but I can't help feeling mad because he drank for some years after my parents divorce and kept his house in bad conditions so I couldn't visit with him for a year. He never drank with me around, he is a really loving and caring dad. I thought he stopped but a couple weeks ago I saw liquor bottles and stuff in his trunk. He has also been clinically depressed for a while (9 years) and he got better but he lost his job a while ago and he is depressed again. He feels guilty because he can't pay child support.
    Sometimes I just feel like telling my friends everything. Like why I don't donate cans of food to the food bank when our school has the yearly food drive. I wanna just say, "i can't because my food comes from the food bank and the reason my lunches only cost 40 cents unlike yours wich cost 3 dollars is because the school helps us out. and you've never met my dad because he spends his days looking for a job and sitting in his house alone." but I can't. They can't know my secret. That I don't live a normal 12 year olds life like marrisa and pheobe think I do.

    I think the true meaning is when you really love someone, although they make and do the wrong things to hurt you, you still keep on loving them. You don't give up. But in the end, when there's not much more you can do; you realize the fact that you were the right one. The face that all those blames for that persons wrong behavior was blamed on you. "only you truely know yourself. " love you taylor swift, you're a great inspiration. And you've inspired me to play the guitar and not be afraid to speak first.

    (intro meaning): he alwys has a way of first being sweet to her, but then in the end he hurts her, nd takes the best of her. Aka her happiness? So she alwys end up makin up a fite w him. Nd shes telling him to do what he wants bc shes not what he wanted.
    (chorus): how he makes her feel nd what hes said, made the day seem rainy, a form of symbolic to a sad day, gloomy. Nd the more she thinks of it, the more she feels cold or as if he were a stranger to her. And evn tho he alwys ended up messing up their relationship, she alwys stood by his side no matter what.
    But in the end he doesn't care about her, nd he doesn't care if she wld die for him, or if she loved him to death. And she feels like if it all was a shame, she has nvr felt as cold as she is, with him.
    That's all. I think wen people or a girl goes thru this they can really relate to it. I kno I hav in the past. Thnks for reading.
