"Ours" as written by and Taylor Swift....
Elevator buttons and morning air,
Strangers silence makes me want to take the stairs,
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares,
But right now,
My time is theirs.

Seems like there's always
Someone who disapproves,
They'll judge it like they know about me and you,
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do,
The jury's out,
And my choice is you.

So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard,
The stakes are high,
The waters rough,
But this love is ours,

You never know what people have up their sleeves,
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me,
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles,
But I don't care,
'Cause right now you're mine,
And you say,

So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard,
The stakes are high,
The water's rough,
But this love is ours

And it's not theirs to speculate,
If it's wrong and,
Your hands are tough but they are where,
My belong in,
I'll fight their doubt and give you faith with this song for you.

'Cause I love the gap between your teeth,
And I love the riddles that you speak,
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored,
'Cause my heart is yours.

So don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
And life makes love look hard,

And don't you worry your pretty little mind,
People throw rocks at things that shine,
But they can't take what's ours,
They can't take what's ours,
The stakes are high,
The water's rough,
But this love is ours.

    General CommentPretty sure this song's about how people will always try to judge your relationship and try to tell you that it's wrong, but since they don't truly know either of you their opinions don't matter.

    Andd I'm not sure but I think this song's possibly about Corey Monteith and Taylor's little secret fling~ that they never really admitted to.

    General Commentexcellent song about how people try to come in between everyone else's relationships. think about it, we always wanna interrupt two people and sometimes they just think its enough. if two people are happy, no one else should try to ruin that.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship that people are constantly judging, for any reason. Whether it be heterosexual or homosexual, people are saying that this relationship is wrong. I can completely relate, considering the fact that I am currently involved with a person of a different religion. People are always judging these people and saying that their love isn't right.

    General Commentthis is totally about John Mayer. "I love the gap between your teeth" and "And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored"

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG!
    it's my absolute favorite!
    it's super adorable and I can so relate to it!
    my boyfriend is...different than most people and some of my 'friends' tell me I'm too good for him or something, but they're just being shallow.
    I care about him and that is all that matters.

    anyway, I love this song and i can't take it off of repeat! :D

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song!
    It sounds like it could be about Toby (the 'husband' in the Mine music video).
    Because it mentions a gap in his teeth and tattoos, both of which Toby has .. and they were spotted together quite often, even before the shoot, so people suspected they dated. I wonder .. :)

    Either way, it's a pretty adorable song about a girl trying to comfort her significant other becasue no one thinks they should be together but she sees through all of their rude opinions and loves him anyway. I was in a similar situation when i was sixteen. I was falling for him when everyone was against it. And I fell totally and completely in love. It was wonderful. This almost seems like a more realistic 'Love Story'. ... the focus of it anyway, ahah, loving someone who no one else wants you to.

    General Commentthis is such a cute and catchy song!
    deff my favorite off of the whole album! (including the bonuses, obviously[: )
    is about two people in love, but people disapprove but they're all
    'who cares? this love is ours and no one can take it from us'
    love it! sooo relatable!
