Long Live

This is a song I’ve just dug up from my old collection from long, long ago – Long Live by Taylor Swift.

Here goes!


Long Live
By: Taylor Swift

I said remember this moment in the back of my mind
The time we stood with our shaking hands
The crowds in stands went wild
We were the Kings and the Queens
And they read off our names
The night you danced like you knew our lives
Would never be the same
You held your head like a hero
On a history book page
It was the end of a decade
But the start of an age

Long live
The walls we crashed through
How the kingdom lights shined
Just for me and you
I was screaming long live
All the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders
One day,
We will be remembered

I said remember this feeling
I pass the pictures around
Of all the years that we stood there
On the side-lines wishing for right now

We are the Kings and the Queens
You traded your baseball cap for a crown
When they gave us our trophies
And we held them up for our town

And the cynics were outraged
Screaming, “This is absurd!”
Cause for a moment a band of thieves
In ripped up jeans got to rule the world

Long live
The walls we crashed through
How the kingdom lights shined
Just for me and you
I was screaming long live
All the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders
I’m not afraid
Long live
All the mountains we moved
I had the time of my life
Fighting dragons with you
I was screaming long live
That look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders
One day,
We will be remembered

Hold on to spinning around
Confetti falls to the ground
May these memories break our fall

Will you take a moment,
Promise me this
That you’ll stand by me forever
But if God forbid fate should step in

And force us into a goodbye
If you have children some day
When they point to the pictures
Please tell them my name

Tell them how the crowds went wild
Tell them how I hope they shine

Long live
The walls we crashed through
I had the time of my life
With you

Long, long live
The walls we crashed through
How the kingdom lights shined
Just for me and you
And I was screaming long live
All the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders
I’m not afraid
Singing, long live
All the mountains we moved
I had the time of my life
Fighting dragons with you
And long, long live
The look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders
One day
We will be remembered
