Taylor Swift Speak Now Lyrics

I am not the kind of girl

Who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion

But you are not the kind of boy

Who should be marrying the wrong girl

I sneak in and see your friends

And her snotty little family all dressed in pastel

And she is yelling at a bridesmaid

Somewhere back inside a room

Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

This is surely not what you thought it would be

I lose myself in a daydream

Where I stand and say

[Chorus:]

Don’t say “Yes”, run away now

I’ll meet you when you’re out of the church at the back door

Don’t wait or say a single vow

You need to hear me out

And they said, “Speak now.”

Fond gestures are exchanged

And the organ starts to play

A song that sounds like a death march

And I am hiding in the curtains

It seems that I was uninvited by your lovely bride-to-be

She floats down the aisle like a pageant queen

But I know you wish it was me,

You wish it was me,

Don’t you?

[Chorus:]

Don’t say “Yes”, run away now,

I’ll meet you when you’re out of the church at the back door.

Don’t wait or say a single vow,

You need to hear me out,

And they said, “Speak now.”

Don’t say “Yes”, run away now,

I’ll meet you when you’re out of the church at the back door.

Don’t wait or say a single vow,

Your time is running out,

And they said, “Speak now.”

Oh, la, la

Oh, oh

Say a single vow

I hear the preacher say, “Speak now or forever hold your peace.”

There’s the silence, there’s my last chance.

I stand up with shaky hands, all eyes on me.

Horrified looks from everyone in the room

But I’m only looking at you.

I am not the kind of girl

Who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion

But you are not the kind of boy

Who should be marrying the wrong girl

[Chorus:]

So, don’t say “Yes”, run away now,

I’ll meet you when you’re out of the church at the back door.

Don’t wait or say a single vow,

You need to hear me out,

And they said, “Speak now.”

And you say, “Let’s run away now,

I’ll meet you when I’m out of my tux at the back door.

Baby, I didn’t say my vows,

So glad you were around

When they said, “Speak now.”
