LYRICS: Story of Us

© Taylor Alison Swift
Edited by Brent Ryan

I never thought one day we'd tell the story of us,
How we met and the sparks flew instantly,
People would say, "They're the crazy ones."
I used to know my place was living on my own,
Now I'm searching the room for your seat,
Somehow lately I always know what page you're on.

Oh, a simple communication,
Assimilation led to marriage.
So many things that I wish you knew,
So many walls that I pass right through.

[Chorus:]
Now I'm standing alone with you, in a crowded room, and we're kissing,
And I'm wanting to know is it wrecking you like it's wrecking me, yeah?
I never know what to say, since the twist of fate when it all began,
And the story of us looks a lot like a comedy now.

Next chapter.

How'd we end up this way?
See me nervously pulling at my clothes and trying to look busy,
And you're doing your best to keep up with me.
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us,
How I was losing my mind when I saw you here,
Holding your bride like someone more confused, might hold their pride.

Oh, I'm excited to see the beginning,
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
I'd tell you to kiss me but I don't know how,
I've never heard silence quite this loud.

[Chorus:]
Now I'm standing with you in our clergy room and we're vowing,
And I'm begging to know is it exciting you like it's exciting me, yeah?
I never know what to say, since the twist of fate when it all began,
And the story of us looks a lot like a comedy now.

This is looking like a sonnet,
Of who can guess what the other wants more,
And I like it most when you are on my side,
This marriage is in your hands now,
I laid my armor down
When you said you'd rather love than fight,
So many things that you wished I knew,
And the story of us has been beginning soon.

[Chorus:]
Now I'm standing with you in our reception room and we're dancing,
And I'm demanding to know is it wrecking you like it's wrecking me, yeah?
I never know what to say, since the twist of fate when it all began,
And the story of us looks a lot like a comedy now, now, now.
And we're beyond speaking,
And somehow I'm knowing you are loving me like I am loving you, yeah!
I don't know what to say, since the twist of fate we're already on,
And the story of us looks a lot like a comedy now.

Let’s begin.



Ok first question I would ask myself from an outside perspective; Why write this? Because I like to day dream and this is a present that I think I want. Will see. Taylor Swift writes lyrics from her life experience. I choose to be a positive person and so I am often reimagining the words she is saying because I love her and wish her to sing about us. If the Divine sees this as true then so shall it be, instead of my confusion clearing. Typing it out is just my way of organization as I write a lot. I write all this extra stuff because I feel compelled too... haven't really worked it out beyond that.

Why share this? every idea must touch another to exist and take form. A less cryptic answer might be because I like being painfully and humiliatingly honest. Secrets always have a shelf life and the effect tends to be worse the longer they are kept. So I choose to embrace honesty even if it is painful at times.

I like to pretend that she reads my blog because that is the limit to which I allow myself. First and foremost, I love her and want her to be happy, and so the best thing I can do is to do absolutely nothing.

I trust in the Divine to either make it happen or clear up my confusion. Regardless of what I believe behaving like a stalker would have the opposite effect of what I want. Besides she is something other than Prey to me.

How do I know I love someone? Because love is putting someone else's wants and desires ahead of your own. Obsession/infatuation is incredibly selfish and can quickly lead to the dark side. I have had ample experience with both in the past and that is how I know the difference personally. I have been depressed for most of my life. I am much happier now but the past has left me hypersensitive to even the hint of the dark side. This is also how I know that I love Taylor Alison Swift.

How can you love someone you hardly know? As Tay Tay says to know her is to listen to her songs. So I know enough to be sure that it is her and not some mental illusion/projection. I imagine our life together and the greater detail I fill in the easier it is to feel if it is true or not. This may sound strange to most but I am ok with strange.

I listen to Taylor Alison Swift's songs constantly. Her music helps me write and that is odd because lyrical music tends to be a very poor literary muse. I research and write constantly, so I am listening to her words and voice constantly. I have actually tried this before with other infatuations/obsessions and this is one of the ways I brought myself out of those holes of negativity. Conversely her voice has helped me become even happier and more joyful, loving, and happy. I believe that I used to be a real chore to be around... I wasn't a very good friend to anyone... At least the kind of friend that I 'want' to be.

How will Taylor Swift find you? That is a funny question because I have no real answer. My search for an answer has led to an interest in Tarot cards and Astrology. I trust in the Divine that it knows a way and is already seeing it realized. I know this because I often ask for help from the Divine and if I am confused then I quickly realize in what way that I am wrong. I continue to see Tay Tay as right and so I continue to believe.

LYRICS: Superstar

© Taylor Alison Swift
Minor Edits by Brent Ryan

This is wrong, but I can't help but feel like
There ain't nothing more out there
Misty morning, comes again and I can’t
Help but wish I could see your face
And I knew from the first song played
I'd be breaking all my rules to see you
You smile that beautiful smile and
All the girls’n’boys in the front row scream your name

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I never take my eyes off of you
I'm no one special, just another
Wide eyed boy who's desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, superstar

Morning loneliness, comes around when I'm not
Dreaming about you
When my world wakes up today
You'll be in another town
And I knew when I saw your face, I'd be
Counting down the ways to see you
You smile that beautiful smile and
All the girls’n’boys in the front row scream your name

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I never take my eyes off of you
I'm no one special, just another
Wide eyed boy who's desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, superstar

You play in bars, you play guitar
I'm invisible and everyone knows who you are
And you'll never see, sing me to sleep
Every night from the radio

So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I never take my eyes off of you
I'm no one special, just another
Wide eyed boy who's desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall, superstar
Sweet, sweet superstar, superstar



I only list my name to hopefully avoid confusion with unaltered lyrics. I love and dream of Taylor, and she is a woman and I am a man. So I pretty much just flipped 'girl' to 'boy' and 'girls in the front row' to 'girls'n'boys in the front row', more of a tongue twister but I believe she could easily sing it flawlessly. Whoever inspired the song "Mean" needs some serious mental help. Though it also is a good thing cause that means she is free to see me. ;)

LYRICS: Enchanted

© Taylor Alison Swift
Edited by Brent Ryan

Here I am again tonight forcing laughter, faking smiles
Same old tired, lonely place

Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy vanished when I see your face
All I can say, that I am enchanted to meet you

Your eyes whisper "have we met?"
Across the room your silhouette starts to make its way to me
A playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks like passing notes in secrecy
And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I am enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, never let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
I am enchanted to meet you

The lingering question keep me up
2am, who do you love?
I wonder till I'm wide awake
Now I'm pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say,
It is enchanting to meet you

All I know is I am enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, never let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you know

This night is flawless, please never let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
I am enchanted to meet you

This is me praying that this is the very first page
Place where our story line begins
My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again
These are the words I hold back as I am leaving too soon
I am enchanted to meet you
Please be free of love with someone else
Please be free of someone waiting on you
Please be free of love with someone else
Please be free of somebody waiting on you

This night is sparkling, never let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you know

This night is flawless, never let it go
I'm wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you know
I am enchanted to meet you

Please be free of love with someone else
Please be free of somebody waiting on you



The goal is to edit out the contractions she uses. I love Taylor and this is one of my favorite songs of hers. I listen to all her songs endlessly which is weird for me. Anyhow I believe in the "Law of Attraction" and that our subconscious naturally ignores a contraction in a sentence. So "don't" because "do"; and of course that is bad.
