Ours

For over a week now I’ve had two lines from a song creeping into my mind upon occasion and I couldn’t place them.  Instead of doing a Google search I made it my mission to listen to all the music I had in my car (not a lot compared to all the music I have, but it was the most likely place) in search of the song with these lines in it:

“People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard”

Don’t even ask why it was playing mind intruder for a week or so, you know how the mind does and doesn’t work, it just was.  Today, on the way to NAMI Group I heard the song and for the first chorus I didn’t know I had heard it.  It was raining pretty hard and I was paying more attention to the two-lane winding road that what was in the CD player.  Then, I had to brake really hard for a pulp truck turning turning into my lane and I heard the second chorus.  It clicked, I had found the song. So here it is, not the best song in the world but a good song in my opinion.  And….the one that’s had lines bouncing about my brain.

“Ours”
By Taylor Swift

“Elevator buttons and morning air
Strangers’ silence makes me wanna take the stairs
If you were here we’d laugh about their vacant stares
But right now my time is theirs

Seems like there’s always someone who disapproves
They’ll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury’s out, but my choice is you

So don’t you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water’s rough
But this love is ours

You never know what people have up their sleeves
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
But I don’t care ’cause right now you’re mine

And you’ll say
Don’t you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water’s rough
But this love is ours

And it’s not theirs to speculate
If it’s wrong and
Your hands are tough
But they are where mine belong and
I’ll fight their doubt and give you faith
With this song for you

‘Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
‘Cause my heart is yours

So don’t you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
Don’t you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
But they can’t take what’s ours
They can’t take what’s ours

The stakes are high, the water’s rough
But this love is ours”
