Lyrics of Taylor Swift’s ‘cardigan’ from ‘folklore’ album + music video

  • singer: Taylor Swift
  • songwriters: Taylor Swift, Aaron Dessner
  • producer: Aaron Dessner

VERSE 1:
Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
Sequined smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young, they assume you know nothing

PRE-CHORUS:
But I knew you
Dancin’ in your Levi’s

Drunk under a streetlight, I
I knew you
Hand under my sweatshirt
Baby, kiss it better, I

CHORUS: 
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

VERSE 2:
A friend to all is a friend to none
Chase two girls, lose the one
When you are young, they assume you know nothing

PRE-CHORUS:
But I knew you
Playing hide-and-seek and
Giving me your weekends, I
I knew you
Your heartbeat on the High Line
Once in twenty lifetimes, I

CHORUS:
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

VERSE 3:
To kiss in cars and downtown bars
Was all we needed
You drew stars around my scars
But now I’m bleedin’
‘Cause I knew you
Steppin’ on the last train
Marked me like a bloodstain, I
I knew you
Tried to change the ending
Peter losing Wendy, I
I knew you
Leavin’ like a father, running like water, I
But when you are young, they assume you know nothing

BRIDGE:
But I knew you’d linger like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt all of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke would hang around this long
‘Cause I knew everything when I was young
I knew I’d curse you for the longest time
Chasin’ shadows in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss me once the thrill expired
And you’d be standin’ in my front porch light
And I knew you’d come back to me
You’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back

CHORUS:
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite
