About State of Grace

"State of Grace" is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift from her fourth studio album Red (2012). It was released to the iTunes Store on October 16, 2012, in the United States by Big Machine Records as the fourth and final promotional single from the album. It was the only promotional single from the album that was not re-issued as an official single, as "Begin Again", "Red", and "I Knew You Were Trouble", were all later re-issued as official singles. The song was written by Swift and produced by Nathan Chapman and Swift. Musically, the song is a departure from Swift's typical country pop, using influences of alternative rock while being compared to bands such as U2, Muse and The Cranberries. The song has received widespread acclaim from music critics, who have complimented its broader sound in comparison with Swift's previous material.

I'm walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives
And all we know
Is touch and go
We are alone with our changing minds
We fall in love 'til it hurts or bleeds
Or fades in time

And I never 
(Never)
Saw you coming
And I'll never
(Never)
Be the same

You come around and the armor falls
Pierce the room like a cannon ball
Now all we know
Is don't let go
We are alone, just you and me
Up in your room and our slates are clean
Just twin fire signs
Four blue eyes

So you were never a saint
And I loved in shades of wrong
We learn to live with the pain
Mosaic broken hearts
But this love is great and wild

And I never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never) 
Saw you coming (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
And I'll never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never)
Be the same

This is a state of grace
This is the worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
These are the hands of fate
You're my Achilles heel
This is the golden age of something good
And right and real

And I never 
(Never)
Saw you coming
And I'll never
Be the same
Yeah, oh-oh

And I never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Never) 
Saw you coming (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
And I'll never (oh-oh, oh-oh, ouh-ooh)
(So you were never a saint)
(And I loved in shades of wrong)
Be the same (we learn to live with the pain)
(Mosaic broken hearts)
(But this love is great and wild)

This is a state of grace
This is the worth while fight
Love is a ruthless game
Unless you play it good and right
