"Holy Ground" as written by and Taylor Swift....
I was reminiscing just the other day
While having coffee all alone and Lord, it took me away
Back to a first-glance feeling on New York Time
Back when you fit in my poems like a perfect rhyme
Took off faster than a green light "Go"
Yeah, you skipped the conversation when you already know
I left a note on the door with a joke we’d made
And that was the first day

And darling, it was good never looking down
And right there where we stood was holy ground

Spinning like a girl in a brand new dress
We had this big wide city all to ourselves
We blocked the noise with the sound of ‘I need you’
And for the first time I had something to lose
And I guess we fell apart in the usual way
And the story’s got dust on every page
But sometimes I wonder how you think about it now
And I see your face in every crowd

Cause darling, it was good never looking down
And right there where we stood was holy ground

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you
Tonight I’m gonna dance like you were in this room
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you

It was good never looking down
And right there where we stood was holy ground

Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you
Tonight I’m gonna dance like you were in this room
But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you

    General CommentThis Country-Rock stomper finds Swift reminiscing about a relationship that ran on "New York time" where for a short period, "everywhere we stood is holy ground." Regarding whom she is singing about, as far as we're aware, two of Taylor's exes were based in New York - Joe Jonas whom she had a relationship with in 2008 and Brokeback Mountain star Jake Gyllenhaal whom the songstress dated for about three months in late 2010.


    Jeff Bhasker, the man behind much of Kanye West's, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, produced this song. It is one of several tracks on Red that finds Swift collaborating with a variety of different writers and producers. She told CMT News: "This album was such an amazing experience because, for my last album, I just wrote it by myself. And so this one, I wanted to approach it differently because I never want to make the same album twice. So I would just call my songwriting and producing heroes and say, 'Hey, you want to work together?' And I got to work with some of my heroes, and I feel like I learned so much about other people's processes and other people's ways of doing things. It's so healthy as an artist to consistently put yourself in a room with people who are so different, style-wise, and so different in the way that they approach music than you are because it teaches you things. It teaches you new tricks."
