All I knew this morning when I woke
Is I know something now, know something now I didn't before
And all I've seen since eighteen hours ago is green eyes and freckles
And your smile in the back of my mind making me feel like
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you, know you, know you

'Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

And all my walls stood tall painted blue
But I'll take 'em down, take 'em down and open up the door for you

And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies the beautiful kind
Making up for lost time, taking flight, making me feel like

I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you, know you, know you

'Cause all I know is we said hello
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

Come back and tell me why
I'm feeling like I've missed you all this time
And meet me there tonight
And let me know that it's not all in my mind

I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just want to know you, know you, know you

All I know is we said hello
Your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
All I know is he held the door
You'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

All I know is we said hello
So dust off your highest hopes
All I know is pouring rain
And everything has changed
All I know is a new found grace
All my days, I'll know your face
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

    General Comment:i honestly do not think this song is about "reuniting" with an old friend or boyfriend.
    it is about meeting somebody new that she feels liek she needs to know better becuase it is all she can think about "since 18 hours ago"
    also when it says "feeling like i ve been missing you all this time" she means that she didnt realize she needed somebody that made her feel like that her whole life and now everything has changed and she needs him.

    My Interpretation:So, the message in her lyrics says "Hyannisport", which is where she hung out with the Kennedy's. It's definitely about Conor.

    Lyric Correction:Obviously these lyrics are wrong. Here are the correct ones:

    All I knew this morning when I woke
    Is I know something now, know something now I didn't before
    And all I've seen since 18 hours ago is green eyes and freckles and your smile in the back of my mind making me feel right
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you know you know you

    Cause all I know is we said hello
    And your eyes look like coming home
    All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
    All I know is you held the door
    You'll be mine and i'll be yours
    All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

    And all my walls stood tall painted blue
    But i'll take them down, take them down and open up the door for you
    And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies the beautiful kind
    Making up for lost time, taking flight, making me feel right
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you know you know you

    Cause all I know is we said hello
    And your eyes look like coming home
    All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
    All I know is you held the door
    You'll be mine and i'll be yours
    All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

    Come back and tell me why I'm feeling like i've missed you all this time
    And meet me there tonight And let me know that it's not all in my mind
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you know you know you
    Cause all I know is we said hello
    And your eyes look like coming home
    All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
    All I know is you held the door You'll be mine and i'll be yours
    All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

    All I know is we said hello
    So dust off your highest hopes
    All I know is pouring rain
    And everything has changed
    All I know is a newfound brightness
    All my days, i'll know your face
    All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

    General Comment:Taylor wrote this duet with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran whilst they were sitting on a trampoline. She recalled to MTV News: "We, for real, [were] sitting on my trampoline in my backyard cause we had been writing a song and I was like, 'Hey, I just got a trampoline. You want to see it?' And so, he brought the guitar for some reason."

    Taylor added: "We ended up writing an entire song out there. For portions of the song, [we were bouncing around] 'cause it's a trampoline and it's fun, and the combined maturity level of both of us is 8 years old."


    Though Sheeran comes from a folk background and Swift a pop-country one, the English singer-songwriter told MTV News their partnership worked as they have a lot in common. "Well, I don't really write so much with other artists," he said. "Like the Taylor session, when we got together and wrote was the second time I've ever gotten with another singer/songwriter and written a song with them. So it wasn't actually too hard of an adjustment. We're very much alike musically and it worked out well, I think."


    Ed Sheeran is one of several songwriters that Swift reached out to write with her on Red. She told Billboard magazine that the people she chose to collaborate with were ones who inspired her. "You look at someone like Ed Sheeran," she said. "He comes from such a sincere place as a writer, and his songs move you in every direction emotionally. That's something I was so inspired by I ended up calling him."


    The song was produced by Butch Walker, who once covered Swift's "You Belong With Me."


    Regarding the song's meaning, Taylor told Digital Spy: "It's about falling in love. It's about meeting someone and all of a sudden your entire perspective on the world changes - you're thinking for two, instead of one."


    Asked by The Sun how Sheeran and her originally met up, Swift replied: "We had both reached out to each other's camps at the same time. I showed up at his hotel in Arizona and we just wrote songs all day. Then he came and hung out at my house in LA and we spent all night sitting on the kitchen floor laughing, writing songs and harmonising."


    Swift first came across Sheeran when she heard one of his singles while traveling abroad. "I was in Australia when I first saw Ed Sheeran's music video for 'Lego House' and I was so blown away by his voice that I found a way to get his album, the entire album, even though it was not on sale in the U.S. yet," Swift told MTV News. "And became a huge fan."

    My Interpretation:She met back with her ex after a few years. They hung out and realize that they actually have fun being with each other. Not as exes or boyfriends and girlfriends but just as friends. Their previous relationship didn't work because they were still kids. Who could blame them?;P Now everything is different..
    -'Cause all I know is we said hello
    And your eyes look like coming home
    All I know is a simple name, everything has changed

    All these time, they didn't really know much about each other until they sat down together and talk. Enjoying each other's company and having mature conversations~~=pp
    -I just want to get to know you better.

    The realization came as they grew into maturation. It made them realize, that all these times, there were so much more inside the relationship. Now, they just want to hang out and restart over again.
    -Making up for lost times.=)

    I just want to know, you know you know you"

    She wants to know him better AGAIN.

    "'Cause all I know is we said hello
    And your eyes look like coming home
    All I know is a simple name, everything has changed
    All I know is you held the door
    You'll be mine and I'll be yours
    All I know since yesterday is everything has changed"

    She probably saw him again since a long time ago, and noticed that the "magic" wasn't there anymore. Probably they were big friends when they were kids and now they're like strangers.

    "And all my walls stood tall painted blue
    But I'll take them down, take them down and open up the door for you"

    He is trying to "make their relationship" grow again.

    "And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies the beautiful kind
    Making up for lost time, taking flight, making me feel like"

    She is in love with him since they were kids. "butterflies"

    "I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
    I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
    I just want to know you better, know you better, know you better now
    I just want to know you, know you know you"

    They want to be big friends again.


    "Come back and tell me why
    I'm feeling like I've missed you all this time
    And meet me there tonight
    And let me know that it's not all in my mind"

    She is in love with him. And she thinks he loves her too. So she wants to know if he does love her. "And meet me there tonight and let me know that it's not all in my mind"

    General Comment:I heard this song in a cafe today. It resonated with me after hearing the line, "I just want to know you better know you better know you better now" because I have a crush on a guy at work (probably most awful kind of crush!) and we've only recently gone from smiles and 'hellos' to actually having a proper conversation. So it's just like... ahhh I just want to get to know him better now XD Too bad he's gone overseas for about a month. But when he gets back, hopefully we'll have more opportunities to talk :) Even if I only get a friendship out of it, that's fine.

    Probably the first Taylor Swift song I've liked!!!

    My Interpretation:All I knew this morning when I woke
    Is I know something now, know something now I didn't before

    >>you start to realize that you are developing feelings for this guy you know or just met recently. you know, the feeling when you just woke up and the first thing that comes to your mind was that person's face and think to yourself "yeah, he's nice." then find yourself smiling alone? yeah, that. :)


    And all I've seen since 18 hours ago is green eyes and freckles and your smile in the back of my mind making me feel right

    >>at first, he was just some random guy, maybe just an acquaintance. but you're really fond of him even from the beginning. you can say because you have been looking into the "details" of his personality and appreciating his qualities. but you brush it away, putting the thoughts "in the back of your mind". but still you feel connected to him and you "feel right".


    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you better know you better know you better now
    I just want to know you know you know you

    >>all those and you just want to know him more. the fact that these lines are being repeated somehow points out that you want so much to be close to him.


    Cause all I know is we said hello
    All I know is a simple name...
    All I know is you held the door

    >>you are not best friends nor are you "close" friends, just acting civil towards each other


    And your eyes look like coming home

    >>but you feel the connection.


    You'll be mine and i'll be yours

    >>and you start to think about spending more time with him in the future. maybe to the point of being in love.


    All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

    >>and you weren't thinking about this before but now you do.


    And all my walls stood tall painted blue

    >>the word "blue" is synonymous to sadness. you've been hurt before that made you afraid to try to love again. so you've been keeping away from people.


    But i'll take them down, take them down and open up the door for you

    >>but you feel that you are willing to try again with him. you feel like the walls that you have put up around you is useless and you will welcome him to your life


    And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies the beautiful kind

    >>though you feel nervous about taking a chance on love, you feel somewhat excited.


    Making up for lost time, taking flight, making me feel right

    >>much like the way you were before. and you remember how good it felt.


    Come back and tell me why I'm feeling like i've missed you all this time

    >>you were thinking "why did i not meet you long before i had my heart broken?" thinking that if you met him long before, you would have saved both of you the pain.


    And meet me there tonight And let me know that it's not all in my mind

    >>all you want now is to know if the feeling is mutual.


    All I know is we said hello, So dust off your highest hopes

    >>you don't want to rush things so fast.


    All I know is pouring rain, And everything has changed

    >>you used to look at the rain as a sad thing, now she's starting to appreciate it


    All I know is a newfound grace,
    All my days, i'll know your face

    >>you believe that what you have now is a blessing and you know that you are going to remember how you felt today for the rest of your life.
