Taylor Swift’s Original ‘All Too Well’ Lyrics vs

    Date:

    Taylor Swift‘s “All Too Well” has taken a unique path since its 2012 release, winding from unassuming Red deep cut to fan-favorite tear-jerker. So it only makes sense that the song deserves a super-sized new version to match its newly outsized reputation.

    On the just-released Red (Taylor’s Version), Swift unveils the long-whispered-about 10-minute version of the song, and it manages to pack even more gut-wrenching punch than the original 2012 breakup ballad. The song’s O.G. lyrics remain intact in the longer rendition, but they’re interspersed with four new sections of heartbreak.

    Among the standout new lines: Swift implies that her ex stood her up on her 21st birthday (“You, who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes/ Sipping coffee like you were on a late night show/ But then he watched me watch the front door all night, willing you to come/ And he said, ‘It’s supposed to be fun…turning 21′”).

    There’s also a lyric that nods to Matthew McConaughey’s famous Dazed and Confused line, when Swift sings, “And I was never good at telling jokes, but the punchline goes: ‘I’ll get older, but your lovers stay my age.’”

    The new lyrics often provide more questions than answers (Who was the actress who found Taylor weeping in a party bathroom? And who is the owner of the incredible “F— the Patriarchy” keychain?), but as we know all too well, Swifties love to unpack a good mystery. (Of course, the song’s central mystery remains almost a decade later: Fans have speculated that the song is about Swift’s 2011 breakup with Jake Gyllenhaal, but the singer/songwriter has never revealed her muse.)

    Below, find the full lyrics for the new 10-minute version of “All Too Well,” with the four new sections bolded:

    I walked through the door with you
    The air was cold
    But something about it felt like home somehow
    And I left my scarf there at your sister’s house
    And you’ve still got it in your drawer even now
    Oh your sweet disposition, and my wide eyed gaze
    We’re singing in the car getting lost upstate
    Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place
    And I can picture it after all these days
    And I know it’s long gone and that magic’s not here no more
    And I might be OK but I’m not fine at all…

    ‘Cause there we are again on that
    Little town street
    You almost ran the red
    ‘Cause you were looking over at me
    Wind in my hair, I was there
    I remember it all too well

    Photo album on the counter
    Your cheeks were turning red
    You used to be a little kid with glasses
    in a twin-sized bed
    And your mother’s telling stories ’bout you on
    the tee ball team
    You taught me ’bout your past
    Thinkin’ your future was me
    And you were tossing me the car keys
    ‘F— the patriarchy’ keychain on the ground
    We were always skipping town
    And I was thinking on the drive down
    Any time now, he’s gonna say it’s love
    You never called it what it was
    ’til we were dead and gone and buried
    Check the pulse and come back
    Swearing it’s the same, after 3 months in the grave
    And then you wondered where it went to
    As I reached for you but
    All I felt was shame
    And you held my lifeless frame
    And I know it’s long gone and
    There was nothing else I could do
    And I forget about you long enough
    To forget why I needed to…
    ‘Cause there we are again in the middle of the night
    We’re dancin’ round the kitchen in the
    refrigerator light
    Down the stairs, I was there
    I remember it all too well…
    And there we are again
    When nobody had to know
    You kept me like a secret
    But I kept you like an oath
    Sacred prayer and we’d swear
    to remember it all too well

    Well maybe we got lost in translation
    Maybe I asked for too much
    But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
    Til you tore it all up
    Running scared, I was there
    I remember it all too well
    And you call me up again
    Just to break me like a promise
    So casually cruel in the name of being honest
    I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
    ‘Cause I remember it all, all, all
    They say all’s well that ends well
    But I’m in a new hell every time
    You double-cross my mind
    You said if we had been closer in age
    Maybe it would have been fine
    And that made me want to die.

    The idea you had of me
    Who was she?
    A never-needy, ever lovely jewel
    Whose shine reflects on you
    Not weeping in a party bathroom
    Some actress asking me what happened
    You.
    That’s what happened: You.
    You, who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes
    Sipping coffee like you were on a late night show
    But then he watched me watch the front door
    all night, willing you to come
    And he said, “it’s supposed to be fun…
    Turning 21”

    Time won’t fly
    It’s like I’m paralyzed by it
    I’d like to be my old self again
    But I’m still trying to find it
    After plaid shirt days
    And nights when you made me your own
    Now you mail back my things
    And I walk home alone
    But you keep my old scarf
    From that very first week
    ‘Cause it reminds you of innocence, and it smells like me
    You can’t get rid of it
    ‘Cause you remember it all too well

    ‘Cause there we are again when
    I loved you so
    Back before you lost the one real thing
    You’ve ever known
    It was rare, I was there
    I remember it all too well
    Wind in my hair, you were there
    You remember it all
    Down the stairs, you were there
    You remember it all
    It was rare, I was there
    I remember it all too well

    And I was never good at telling jokes
    But the punchline goes:
    “I’ll get older, but your lovers stay my age”
    From when your Brooklyn broke my skin and bones
    I’m a soldier who’s returning half her weight
    And did the twin flame bruise paint you blue?
    Just between us, did the love affair maim you too?
    ‘Cause in this city’s barren cold
    I still remember the first fall of snow
    And how it glistened as it fell
    I remember it all too well

    Just between us did the love affair maim you
    All too well
    Just between us, do you remember it
    All too well
    Just between us, I remember it all too well

    Wind in my hair
    I was there, I was there
    Down the stairs, I was there
    I was there
    Sacred prayer
    I was there, I was there
    It was rare, you remember it
    All too well
