Taylor Swift – Foolish One (Taylor’s Version) Lyrics

Taylor Swift Foolish One Taylor’s Version Lyrics (From The Vault)

My cards are on the table
Yours are in your hand
Chances are tonight you’ve already got plans
And chances are I will talk myself to sleep again

You give me just enough attention
To keep my hopes too high
Wishful thoughts forget to mention
When something’s really not right
And I will block out these voices of reason in my head

And the voices say
“You are not the exception
You will never learn your lesson”

Foolish one
Stop checking your mailbox
For confessions of love that ain’t never gonna come
You will take the long way
You will take the long way down

You know how to keep me waiting
I know how to act like I’m fine
Don’t know what to call this situation
But I know I can’t call you mine
And it’s delicate
But I will do my best to seem bulletproof

‘Cause when my head is on your shoulder
It starts thinking you’ll come around
And maybe someday when we’re older
This is something we’ll laugh about
Over coffee every morning while you’re watching the news

But then the voices say
“You are not the exception
You will never learn your lesson”

Foolish one
Stop checking your mailbox
For confessions of love that ain’t never gonna come
You will take the long way
You will take the long way down

Foolish one
Stop checking your mailbox
For confessions of love that ain’t never gonna come
You will learn the hard way
Instead of just walking out

Now I’m sliding down the wall
With my head in my hands
Saying, “How could I not see the signs?”
Oh, you haven’t written me or called
But goodbye screaming in the silence
And the voices in my head are telling me why

‘Cause you got her on your arm
And me in the wings
I’ll get your longing glances
But she’ll get your ring
And you will say you had the best of intentions
And maybe I will finally learn my lesson

Foolish one
Stop checking your mailbox
For confessions of love that ain’t never gonna come
You will take the long way
You will take the long way down

Foolish one
Stop checking your mailbox
For confessions of love that ain’t never gonna come
You will learn the hard way
Instead of just walking out

Ain’t never gonna come
Ooh, you will learn the hard way now

Foolish one
Sitting ’round waiting for confessions of love, they ain’t never gonna come
And thinking he’s the one
You should’ve been walking out

Foolish one
The day is gonna come for your confessions of love, when all is said and done
He just wasn’t the one
No, he just wasn’t the one
