Chorus My heart, my hips, my body, my love Trying to find a part of me that you didn’t touch Gave up on me like I was a bad drug Now I’m searching for signs in a haunted club Our songs, our films, United we stand Our country Guess it was a lawless land Quiet my fears with the touch of your hand Paper cut stings from our paper thin plans My time, my wine, my spirit, my trust Trying to find a part of me you didn’t take up Gave you too much but it wasn’t enough But I’ll be all right It’s just a thousand cuts I get drunk but it’s not enough ‘cause You’re not my baby I look through the windows of this love Even though we boarded them up Chandelier’s still flickering here ‘Cause I can’t pretend it’s ok when it’s not No it’s not It’s death by a thousand cuts Trying to find a part of me that you didn’t touch My body, my love But it wasn’t enough, it wasn’t enough, no, no I take the long way home I ask the traffic lights if it’ll be all right They say ‘I don’t know’ #TaylorSwift #Lover #TaylorSwiftLover © 2019 Taylor Swift

1 decade of being a swiftie. Becoming one on junior high when I was a transferred student and faced bullying. Her songs help me survived the rough time. Today I'm a bachelor of engineering, and still listen to her songs on daily basis. Crazy how time flies and she's still a LIVING LEGEND.

Fun fact: Taylor got the inspiratiom for the song from the movie “Someone Great” and the director later emailed Taylor and said that she was listening to Clean while writing the movie. It’s a fantastic movie.

Yas Daiana (21 days ago)
This was the only song I didn’t like from the album. I didn’t like the instrumental. It’s weird and it doesn’t feel right. It made me uncomfortable (and it makes sense now that I read the comments and a lot of people are saying it portrays anxiety, since I have it). But I put the album on shuffle while I was on a plane and I fell asleep. When I woke up this song was ending. I realized I listened to the whole song and it wasn’t that bad, actually sounded great. Now I can’t stop listening to it. The instrumental is still a mess, but I think that’s the point.

it gives me chills everytime she says "I'll be alright, it's just a thousand cuts" i did felt that

After hearing the acoustic version I can't help but think this has too much background noise. I prefer the acoustic, it's clean and more melancholic. This version is too upbeat.

I know this is basically a break up song inspired by the movie somebody special, but this also gives me political vibes like miss Americana and the heartbreak Prince. like you could switch between a break up song or political one of you wanted.
