The Moment I Knew

Taylor Swift

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've 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 just 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 want to be alone
But your close friends
Always seem to know
When there's something really wrong

So they follow me down the hall
And there in the bathroom
I try not to fall apart
And the sinking feeling starts
As I say 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 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

Ooh, I knew
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
