Written by Taylor Swift and Aaron Dessner
My knuckles were bruised like violets
Sucker punching walls
Cursed you as I sleep talked
Spineless in my tomb of silence
Tore your banners down
Took the battle underground
And maybe it was egos swinging
Maybe it was her
Flashes of the battle come back to me in a blur
All that bloodshed
Crimson clover
Uh huh, sweet dream was over
My hand was the one you reached for
All throughout the Great War
Always remember, uh huh
Tears on the letter
I vowed not to cry anymore
If we survived the Great War
You drew up some good faith treaties
I drew curtains closed
Drank my poison all alone
You said I have to trust more freely
But diesel is desire
You were playing with fire
And maybe it’s the past that’s talking
Screaming from the crypt
Telling me to punish you for things you never did
So I justified it
All that bloodshed, crimson clover
Uh huh, the bombs were closer
My hand was the one you reached for
All throughout the Great War
Always remember, uh huh
The burning embers
I vowed not to fight anymore
If we survived the Great War
Uh huh, uh huh
It turned into something bigger
Somewhere in the haze
Got a sense I’d been betrayed
Your finger on my hairpin triggers
Soldier down
On that icy ground
Looked up at me with honor and truth
Broken and blue
So I called off the troops
That was the night I nearly lost you
I really thought I’d lost you
We can plant a memory garden
Say a solemn prayer
Place a poppy in my hair
There’s no morning glory
It was war it wasn’t fair
And we will never go back to that
Bloodshed, crimson clover
Uh huh, the worst was over
My hand was the one you reached for
All throughout the Great War
Always remember, uh huh
We’re burned for better
I vowed I would always be yours
Cause we survived the Great War
Uh huh, uh huh
I will always be yours
Cause we survived the Great War
Uh huh
I vowed I will always be yours

I honestly feel like this song is describing the hard times my PTSD (from an abusive ex) causes in my relationship, and how we manage to get through it together. We're fighting my demons, rather than each other, but it took a while for me to see that we could do it together as a team - in the start, I would... draw the curtains closed and drink my poison all alone. This is a masterpiece of words.
Roh 7 months ago
This song resonates so much with me. I suffer from BPD and I've had pretty severe crisis fueled by my past and in those crisis I've been horrible to my boyfriend. Said things I didn't mean at all but it was like I couldn't stop vomiting all the poison inside me....thankfully, my boyfriend is mature and kind enough to realize it wasn't really me speaking, it was my BPD. Therapy has helped me to control my emotions and to work on the things that haunt me. I thank my lucky stars to have found someone like him and trust me, I'm gonna do better because I don't want to lose him.
taylor 7 months ago
I can relate to this so well… These lyrics perfectly describe switching, and the nostalgia in this song captures that feeling of nearly losing someone close. Just remember, your emotions aren’t always what’s reality

The whole verse "and maybe is the past that's talking / screaming from a crypt" reminded me of Would've, Could've, Should've. "Living for the thrill of hitting you where it hurts" and on the chorus "and now that I'm grown, I'm scared of ghosts / memories feel like weapons".

This is such an amazing song. This one's definitely my favorite in the whole album. For essentially every song I listen to my brain writes like an entire story in my head about it. This song is one of the only stories I really love, to the point where I'm writing an entire book based on it! (It's a fanfiction, not with OCs, though, because my brain tends to make stories about BFDI and things like that.) Every time I listen to this song now, I have that story repeating back through my head. It's really inspiring, to be honest, just being able to listen to a song and my brain creates a whole story for it. Also, my other favorite songs on this album are the other ones that I really like the stories for!

I love this song so much. I hope Taylor releases these 3am tracks on a physical album 🙏❤️ Does anyone else feel like this would go well with the Hunger Games? Safe & Sound is one of my favorites but I can picture this too 🤩

I love her music because I can always understand every word, she’s very concise and I like that ❤

This is the first time that I feel that “she wrote this about me” feeling. It hits different when you have actually been through what she’s describing here, in the exact same way, and you can see your thoughts and feelings becoming a great work of art - and your favorite song in the album. Taylor Swift, your art is truly mesmerizing 🤍🌌💋

i’ve just escaped an extremely toxic friendship, and this song explains everything. its just really vibey during this time, it describes the aftermath of leaving it, but also the events of it.
