Taylor swift - The moment i knew

You should've been there
should've burst through the door
with that 'baby I'm right here' smile
and it would've felt like
a million little shining stars had just aligned
and I would have been so
happy

Christmas lights glisten
I've got my eye on the door
just waiting for you to walk in
but the time is ticking
people ask me how I've been
as I comb back through my memory
how you said you'd be here

you said you'd be here

and it was like slow motion
standing there in my party dress
in red lipstick
with no one to impress
and they're all laughing
as I'm looking around the room
but there was one thing missing
and that was the moment I knew

and the hours pass by
now I just wanna be alone
but your close friends always seem to know
when there's something really wrong
so they followed me down the hall

and there in the bathroom
I try not to fall apart
and the sinking feeling starts
as I said hopelessly
he said he'd be here


and it was like slow motion
standing there in my party dress
in red lipstick
with no one to impress
and they're all laughing
and asking me all about you
but there was one thing missing
and that was the moment I knew

what do you say
when tears are streaming down your face
in front of everyone you know
and what do you do
when the one who means the most to you
is the one who didn't show

you should've been here
and I would've been so
happy

and it was like slow motion
standing there in my party dress
in red lipstick
with no one to impress
and they're all
standing around me singing
happy birthday to you
but there was one thing missing
and that was the moment I knew


oh oh oh woah oh
I knew
oh oh oh

you called me later
and said I'm sorry I didn't make it
and I said I'm sorry too
and that was the moment I knew
