Here Are the Lyrics to Taylor Swift’s ‘Willow’

News

Taylor Swift climbs up the Billboard Hot 100 once more with her No. 1 hit “Willow,” the lead single from her second surprise album of 2020, Evermore.

Swift told her fans during the YouTube music video premiere that the bewitching ballad is about “intrigue, desire, and the complexity that goes into wanting someone. I think it sounds like casting a spell to make somebody fall in love with you (an oddly specific visual),” she wrote.

Check out the spellbinding lyrics and music video below.

I’m like the water when your ship rolled in that night
Rough on the surface but you cut through like a knife
And if it was an open-shut case
I never would’ve known from that look on your face
Lost in your current like a priceless wine
The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
Head on the pillow, I could feel you sneaking in
As if you were a mythical thing
Like you were a trophy or a champion ring
And there was one prize I’d cheat to win
The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
They count me out time and time again
Life was a willow and it bent right to your wind (oh)
But I come back stronger than a 90’s trend

Wait for the signal and I’ll meet you after dark
Show me the places where the others gave you scars
Now this is an open-shut case
Guess I should’ve known from the look on your face
Every bait and switch was a work of art

The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

The more that you say
The less I know
Wherever you stray
I follow
Begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
You know that my train could take you home
Anywhere else is hollow
Begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man

Hey, that’s my man
That’s my man
Yeah, that’s my man
Every bait and switch was a work of art
That’s my man
Hey, that’s my man
I’m begging for you to take my hand
Wreck my plans
That’s my man
