"Forever and Always (Piano Version)" as written by and Taylor Swift....
Once upon a time, I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye
And 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 cant 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 too 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 here's to everything coming down to nothing
Here's 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 cant 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

You didn't mean it baby, I don't think so

Oh 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 cant 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.

    General CommentI love the piano version of this song. And I hate that Joe hurt her, but I'm also a fan of the Jonas Brothers. And Joe's my favourite lol

    General CommentI think the mood is just really different in the two versions. The original feels more angry, while the piano version just feels more like shes sad and hurt. They are both great, and it's really cool how just the instrumentals completely change the mood of a song.

    My OpinionI used to agree with all my friends that Joe was wonderful and we talked about how Taylor and him were a great match and how much they loved each other. I just can't believe he ditched her. My big question, WHY?

    General CommentI like this version so much more. You can hear all of her emotions in the song. You can hear how much he hurt her. If I were Joe hearing this song, especially this version with all her emotion, I would be too ashamed to leave my house. I love when she says "Was I out of line? Did I say something way too honest
    Made you run and hide like a scared little boy?"
    When she says scared little boy, it just makes him sound like a pathetic looser. Again, ashamed to leave the house.

    MemoryI remember when my most recent ex broke up with me. The song I listened to was "Breathe", also by Taylor Swift, but then I found out I'd been lied to and the relationship really meant nothing. That was when I started listening to "Forever and Always" because I was so angry that I'd been fooled again, going along with the capitalized letters in the album "WHEN YOU PLAY THESE GAMES WE'RE BOTH GOING TO LOSE". A few months passed, and I got over it. Then, when I first heard the piano version, it brought back all the betrayal and the sadness that I hadn't really had a chance to let myself feel before. I was always mad that I'd been lied to, but I never was sad about it. The piano version is a perfect reflection of the progression of a breakup, from the anger to the sadness, and, although I hate to admit it, "I STILL MISS WHO I THOUGHT HE WAS".

    General Commenti think that this song is sooooo much better in piano version!!! i mean i know exactally what she is talking abouthere
    i went through the same thing. my ex-boyfriend and i thought that i really liked him....guess i was wrong.
    he broke up with me over the phone, i guess i understand, it was over the summer. but still, he could have waited
    until he saw me again. then again, i don't want to be in a relation ship that was fake relationship the whole time
    and he woudn't talk to me and i would feel bad.....whateves he was a mistake but as the saying is, better than to have loved and lost than never loved at all. x)

    General Commenti'm in love with this version in my opinion the feeling of it has changed the original version she's mad and yelling at joe in this version she's almost crying asking him why did he breakup with her if you know what i mean and it's like she misses him i say that because of the hidden message which is
    STILL MISS WHAT I THOUGHT HE WAS

    General CommentI think the original version is like the aftermath of this, this is depression and sad and then the original is mad and asking yourself "why the hell would he do this to me?" and stuff. I have recommended this for people who have just broken up with someone (but the original) because this one is too depressing. But Taylor gets over things like me, my friends are the exact opposite. They just go straight to mad. I don't. So yeah. That might not have made any sense, but oh well.
