My knees are bruised from begging for
The love that i worked so hard for
I worked so hard for

And sometimes we paint a scene to frame ourselves
And sometimes we jump the ship to save ourselves

Pinched hard enough to wake up
My choices are all made up
My choice is made up

And sometimes we paint a scene to frame ourselves
And sometimes we jump the ship to save ourselves

Never like I want it to be
Never like I thought it should be

You made your space
And paved the roads that led us astray
You made your space
And paved the roads that led us astray

Don't brag to us anymore
We're tired of breaking your fall
Don't brag to us anymore

And sometimes we paint a scene to frame ourselves
And sometimes we throw the rope to hang ourselves

Never like I wanted to be
Never like I thought I should be

    General CommentWoohoo!! Swift rocks. I finally added the lyrics to this GREAT song. I think its about a guy who's girl (or vice versa) is trying to get out of a relationship without being completely honest.

    My favorite line is:
    "You made your space
    And paved the roads that led us astray"

    If you feel like breaking up with someone, be honest and straightforward. The person will end up respecting you in the end, knowing that you recognized his or her own feelings.
