Taylor Swift – The Archer (Lyrics | Video)

Lyrics “The Archer” / Taylor Swift

Combat, I’m ready for combat
I say I don’t want that, but what if I do
‘Cause cruelty wins in the movies
I’ve got a hundred thrown-out speeches I almost said to you

Easy they come, easy they go
I jump from the train, I ride off alone
I never grew up, it’s getting so old
Help me hold on to you

I’ve been the archer, I’ve been the prey
Who could ever leave me, darling
But who could stay

Dark side, I search for your dark side
But what if I’m alright, right, right, right here
And I cut off my nose just to spite my face
Then I hate my reflection for years and years

I wake in the night, I pace like a ghost
The room is on fire, invisible smoke
And all of my heroes die all alone
Help me hold on to you

I’ve been the archer, I’ve been the prey
Screaming, who could ever leave me, darling
But who could stay

‘Cause they see right through me
They see right through me
They see right through
Can you see right through me
They see right through
They see right through me
I see right through me
I see right through me

All the king’s horses, all the king’s men
Couldn’t put me together again
‘Cause all of my enemies started out friends
Help me hold on to you

I’ve been the archer, I’ve been the prey
Who could ever leave me, darling
But who could stay
Who could stay
Who could stay
Who could stay
You could stay
You could stay

Combat, I’m ready for combat…
