Style

Lyrics

playMidnight
playYou come and pick me up, no headlights
playLong drive
playCould end in burning flames or paradise
playfade into view, oh
playIt's been a while since I have even heard from you
play(Heard from you)

playI should just tell you to leave 'cause I
playKnow exactly where it leads but I
playWatch us go 'round and 'round each time

playU got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
playAnd I got that red lip classic thing that you like
playAnd when we go crashing down
playWe come back every time
play'Cause we never go out of style
playWe never go out of style

playYou got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt
playAnd I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
playAnd when we go crashing down
playWe come back every time
play'Cause we never go out of style
playWe never go out of style

playso it goes
playHe can't keep his wild eyes on the road
playTakes me home
playLights are off, he's taking off his coat
playI say, "I heard, oh
playThat you've been out and about with some other girl,
playSome other girl."

playHe says, "What you've heard is true but I
playCan't stop thinking about you," and I...
playI said, "i've been there too a few times."

playU got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
playAnd I got that red lip classic thing that you like
playAnd when we go crashing down
playWe come back every time
play'Cause we never go out of style
playWe never go out of style

playYou got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt
playAnd I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
playAnd when we go crashing down
playWe come back every time
play'Cause we never go out of style
playWe never go out of style

playTake me home
playJust take me home, yeah.
playJust take me home
play(Out of style)

playU got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
playAnd I got that red lip classic thing that you like
playAnd when we go crashing down
playWe come back every time
play'Cos we never go out of style
playWe never go out of style

meaningMeaning

Swift explained the meaning and inspiration of the song to Ryan Seacrest during an interview on iHeartRadio in October 2014.


"I loved comparing these timeless visuals with a feeling that never goes out of style ... It's basically one of those relationships that's always a bit off ... The two people are trying to forget each other. So, it's like, "All right, I heard you went off with her," and well, I've done that, too ... My previous albums have also been sort of like, "I was right, you were wrong, you did this, it made me feel like this"—a righteous sense of right and wrong in a relationship. What happens when you grow up is you realize the rules in a relationship are very blurred and that it gets very complicated very quickly, and there's not a case of who was right or who was wrong"
