Taylor Swift – Speak Now Lyrics

Artist: Taylor Swift
Album: Speak Now (2010)

[Intro]
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

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
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”

[Verse 2]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
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”

[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”

Oh Oh Oh! (say a single vow)

[Bridge]
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 shaking 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

(Hehe!)

[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”

[Chorus – Variation]
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”
