"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

    My OpinionI think the coolest thing about Taylor's songs is that a lot of the time you can relate them not only to romantic relationships, but relationships of all kinds--parental, friendship, everything. For me, I can relate this song to a friendship I used to have. I had always seen in the movies and books how people could have these real best friends that they just got completely, inside and out. So I met this girl in middle school, and she became my first real best friend. We were both so cynical and weird. It was the first time I had something to lose.

    And then of course years later we had a huge misunderstanding and then we just became really different people and never ever talk anymore. And I was so bitter about it for so long, and felt like all of the sudden I didn't have anyone. But this song helps me feel like maybe just remembering the crazy, good times is enough and that I can move on.
