Taylor Swift The Best Day Lyrics

I’m five years old

It’s getting cold

I’ve got my big coat on

I hear your laugh

And look up smiling at you

I run and run

Past the pumpkin patch

And the tractor rides

Look now — the sky is gold

I hug your legs

And fall asleep

On the way home

I don’t know why all the trees change in the fall

I know you’re not scared of anything at all

Don’t know if Snow White’s house is near or far away

But I know I had the best day

With you today

I’m thirteen now

And don’t know how

My friends could be so mean

I come home crying

And you hold me tight

And grab the keys

And we drive and drive

Until we’ve found a town

Far enough away

And we talk

And window-shop

‘Til I’ve forgotten all their names

I don’t know who I’m gonna talk to now at school

I know I’m laughing on the car ride home with you

Don’t know how long it’s gonna take to feel okay

But I know I had the best day

With you today

I have an excellent father

His strength is making me stronger

God smiles on my little brother

Inside and out he’s better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house

And I had space to run

And I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three

You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you’re talking to me

It’s the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs

And Daddy’s smart and you’re the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

And now I know why all the trees change in the fall

I know you were on my side even when I was wrong

And I love you for giving me your eyes

For staying back and watching me shine

And I didn’t know if you knew

So I’m taking this chance to say

That I had the best day

With you today
