Taylor Swift – Forever And Always lyrics

Once upon a time
I believe it was a Tuesday
When I caught your eye
We caught onto something
I hold onto the night
You looked me in the eye
And told me you loved me

Were you just kidding?

Cause it seems to me
This thing is breaking down
We almost never speak
I don't feel welcome anymore
Baby what happened
Please tell me cause one second it was perfect
Now you're halfway out the door

And I stare, at the phone
He still, hasn't called
And then you feel so low you can't feel, nothing at all
And you flashback to when he said
Forever and always

Oh, and it rains in your bedroom, everything is wrong
It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone
Cause I was there when you said
Forever and always

Was I out of line? Did I say something way to honest?
Made you run and hide like a scared little boy?
I looked into your eyes, thought I knew you for a minute
Now I'm not so sure

So heres to everything
Coming down to nothing
Heres to silence
That cuts me to the core
Where is this going?
Thought I knew for a minute but I don't anymore

And I stare, at the phone
He still, hasn't called
And then you feel so low you can't feel, nothing at all
And you flashback to when he said
Forever and always

Oh, and it rains in your bedroom, everything is wrong
It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone
Cause I was there when you said
Forever and always

Didn't mean it baby?
I don't think so

Ohhhhh

Back up, baby back up
Did you forget everything?
Back up, baby back up
Did you forget everything?

Cause it rains in your bedroom, everything is wrong
It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone
Cause I was there when you said
Forever and always

Oh, I stare, at the phone
He still, hasn't called
And then you feel so low you can't feel, nothing at all
And you flashback to when we said
Forever and always

And it rains in your bedroom, everything is wrong
It rains when you're here and it rains when you're gone
Cause I was there when you said
Forever and always

You didn't mean it baby
You said forever and always
Yeah

    Joe Jonas. How stupid could he be anyway? Honestly. He should just go jump off a cliff or something. Taylor Swift seems like a wonderful and sweet person, how the hell could he break up with her? Sure he could have lost his feelings for her but come on! At least be man enough to tell her that.
    Anyway. I really love this song. Story of my life actually except for one difference, I don't really care.

    Confirmed, on an interview in Kiisfm she said this song was about Joe. At least I think so. *Checks memory* hmmm. I'm pretty sure. But hey I was half asleep when I heard it in the morning. Lol. Yeah this song is about how a guy said he loves her Forever and Always. But it's not true and she's all questioning herself thinking, what did I do wrong? You know every girl needs to know that your perfect the way you are! There is nothing wrong with you. If a guy leaves you, that is his problem! He missed out on A great girl! And, unless your qualified for marriage age (and please don't flame me for this) any guy who says there with you forever and Always. Drop it cold because most likely it won't be forever. He just wants something from you. And guys not to hurt on your pride, your perfect the way you are, its just I have alot of heart broken girls at the moment because they said "Forever&Always" No Joke.

    The secret message is "If You Play These Games We're Both Gonna Lose", so I think its about someone messing with her heart.
    Also, it is about joe, and the way she makes this song sound, it makes him seem like he did something really bad. Maybe he did, but from what he says so did she. Either way, why does it matter? If ur not his fan, too bad, if ur not her fan, too bad, if you like both of them, why should it matter? You like their music, so what goes on in their personal life, shouldnt be a life changing thing for us. Now, personally I love taylor, but I also don't think she needed to tell abunch of press. And they couldve handled the whole situation better. That's just me tho.

    Whenever I listen to this song, I always think of him. Why is he now gone and where? I asked him whether he was sure about loving and having a relationship or not. So why didn't he told me then? I just can't live without him. And he said forever and always so why did he go?
    I need you, if you're seeing it please call me. I can't live without you.
    Please. :(

    Yeah, maybe he didn't have feelings for Taylor anymore, but did he have to break up with her on the phone? That's a low blow and he should be ashamed of himself for doing that Even if they were apart for a while don't you think that Taylor - anyone - deserves better than that and you go and dump her on the phone. That's just sad.
    It's a great song and has meaning to it.

    I'm not sorry for you @Happy 333, ur not a musli, dating, s**, love. I dnt no how ur mom loves you, if she does, ur not a muslim and you shoudlnt brag about things like this, I am an untouched muslim that is 17 and loves it. Yes I've been asked out by like 15 guys no joke, but you have to no the right and the wrong paths in life. People might say yeah hes cute you should go "do it" with him but no you shoudlnt cuz life now doesn't matter, but when you die and the day of judgement comes you will feel ashamed of what you did.

    It's about watching something fade away in a relationship. Taylor Swift said that she felt that she achieved something authentic and raw when she wrote this song. It is about when Joe Jonas broke up with her on the phone. She said it starts out like a pretty melody you can sing to then ends up being this mad song because of how mad she got when she wrote it. She said she was practicly screaming at the end of the song.

    You're Swift fans, huh. Well, that's because you're kinda blind (sorry for sayin' this). Before, when I heard Love Story, Our Song, and White Horse, she sounded real good. But when I heard Forever & Always, Tell Me Why, and You Belong With Me, although their tunes are catchy, they're all about boys. And if you notice, it discriminates boys. Why does she have to tell the world that they broke up and make joe jonas look like the wrong one? Carrie Underwood is undeniably better than T-Swift.

    Helllooo! This song is sooo about Joe Jonas! Ummm, if you were a true Taylor Swift song then you would know that it was. She was on Ellen when she announced that it was about him. Yes all the other songs were already made, but her record company let her come in last minute and record the song so yeah its about joe! So the people who are saying that its about Joe. Yeah ya'll are definitely immature, youre just on Team Taylor. Rock on Swift fans!
