The Story of Us
by Taylor Swift



I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us,
How we met
And the sparks flew instantly
The people would say "they're the lucky ones"

I used to know my place was the spot next to you,
Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on

Oh, a simple complication, Miscommunications lead to fall out,
So many things that I wish you knew
So many walls up I can't break through

Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
And we're not speaking
And I'm dying to know
Is it killing you
Like it's killing me yeah
I don't know what to say since the twist of fate, when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

Next chapter

How'd we end up this way?
See me nervously pulling at my clothes and trying to look busy
And you're doing your best to avoid me
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us
how I was losing my mind when I saw you here
But you held your pride like I should have held me,
Oh I'm scared to see the ending why are we pretending this is nothing
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
Ive never heard silence quite this loud.

(Chorus)
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
And we're not speaking
And I'm dying to know
Is it killing you
Like it's killing me, yeah
I don't know what to say since the twist of fate, when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

This is looking like a contest
Of who can act like they care less
But I liked it better when you were on my side

The battle's in your hands now
But I would lay my armor down
If you said you'd rather love then fight

So many things that you wish I knew
But the story of us might be ending soon

Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room
And we're not speaking
And I'm dying to know
Is it killing you
Like it's killing me yeah
And I don't know what to say since the twist of fate, when it all broke down
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now
NOW NOW!

And were not speaking,
And I'm dying to know is it killing you like it's killing me?

YEAH!

I don't know what to say since the twist of fate, cause were going down.
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

The End
