Official ‘Death By A Thousand Cuts’ Lyrics
Written by Taylor Swift & Jack Antonoff
Saying goodbye is death by a thousand cuts
Flashbacks waking me up
I get drunk but it’s not enough ‘cause
The morning comes and
You’re not my baby
I look through the windows of this love
Even though we boarded them up
Chandelier’s still flickering here
‘Cause I can’t pretend it’s ok when it’s not
It’s death by a thousand cuts I dress to kill my time
I take the long way home
I ask the traffic lights if it’ll be all right
They say ‘I don’t know’
And what once was ours
Is no one’s now
I see you everywhere
The only thing we share
is this small town
You said it was a great love
One for the ages
If the story’s over
Why am I still writing pages? Chorus My heart, my hips, my body, my love
Trying to find a part of me that you didn’t touch
Gave up on me like I was a bad drug
Now I’m searching for signs in a haunted club
Our songs, our films, United we stand
Our country
Guess it was a lawless land
Quiet my fears with the touch of your hand
Paper cut stings from our paper thin plans
My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust
Trying to find a part of me you didn’t take up
Gave you too much but it wasn’t enough
But I’ll be all right
It’s just a thousand cuts I get drunk but it’s not enough ‘cause
You’re not my baby
I look through the windows of this love
Even though we boarded them up
Chandelier’s still flickering here
‘Cause I can’t pretend it’s ok when it’s not
No it’s not
It’s death by a thousand cuts
Trying to find a part of me that you didn’t touch
My body, my love
But it wasn’t enough, it wasn’t enough, no, no I take the long way home
I ask the traffic lights if it’ll be all right
They say ‘I don’t know’

    They say Taylor has a weaker voice compared to other singers, but I can't even sing her songs as graceful as she can. I've never heard any covers or anyone who can sing her the exact way she did. People need to appreciate the way she's singing differently amazing.

    he fell out of love. one day he woke up and decided he doesn't want to be with me anymore. he just left me, alone, with my wounded heart. and the worst part, is that i still love him just as much, i can't find it in me to hate or curse him. i want this pain to end. i want him to beg for me to take him back, but even if it happens, i know that my heart will never be the same as it was before. nothing he does will ever put me back together again. you can't be fixed by the same person that broke you
