save me--i don't wanna die.
don't just stand there--just stand there.

(throw me away)

i'm just hoping
that this dirt under my fingernails,
can keep them clothed.
i've gone too far to be tossed out.

and this knife is upon my neck,
i'm just trying to feed my wife.
i've felt your grab for the last time.

don't tell me that i wronged you,
when you're not the one giving hugs to the phone.
you've had your chance now give me mine.

watching my chance roll by--
watching my chance roll by this time.

save me--i don't wanna die.
don't just stand there--just stand there.

(donde esta mi familia?)

    General CommentYou can tell that this song is about none other than a....guatamalan! A man exported to work "your not the one giving hugs to the phone" his wife is back home he had to leave everything- its a really sad song when you think about it. at the very end it says donde esta mi familia? which---- i have no clue what it means hehe BUT its something about "my family"

    General CommentEverybody has different ones, but this is my favorite Swift song. Normally, I'm not into the whole heavy and screaming and all that but this song is definetely one that I can stand to play on repeat, and the chorus/bridge whatever is a good sing along too for those interested.
