Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We could leave the Christmas lights up 'til January
This is our place, we make the rules
And there's a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear
Have I known you 20 seconds or 20 years?

[Chorus]
Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out, and take me home
You're my, my, my, my lover

[Verse 2]
We could let our friends crash in the living room
This is our place, we make the call
And I'm highly suspicious that everyone who sees you wants you
I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all

[Chorus]
Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out, and take me home (Forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my lover

[Bridge]
Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?
With every guitar string scar on my hand
I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover
My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue
All's well that ends well to end up with you
Swear to be overdramatic and true to my lover
And you'll save all your dirtiest jokes for me
And at every table, I'll save you a seat, lover

[Chorus]
Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out, and take me home (Forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my
Oh, you're my, my, my, my
Darling, you're my, my, my, my lover

Why It Rocks

  1. The song is dramatic and dazzlingly romantic. It is a rom-com worthy, floaty tune that feels destined to become a go-to first dance song for innumerable weddings over the course of the next few years.
  2. The tune is surprisingly mellow.
  3. The Lyrics demonstrate that Taylor doesn’t care what outsiders have to say about her relationship with Joe Alwyn, and what really matters to her is that she adores him.
  4. The chorus is drifty and dreamy.
  5. The music video is extremely well-made.
  6. This song is a breath of fresh air for Taylor, as most of her songs focusing on love also deal with heartbreak and breakup, but this one doesn't.
  7. This track is the re-emergence of Taylor's hopelessly romantic self after spending a few years writing serious songs about bad relationships, and her return to believing in a world where happily-ever-after exists once more.
  8. What's cool is that Taylor solely used interments made in the 1970's to capture a unique retro sound.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. The remix featuring Shawn Mendes is terrible.
