Kelly, Ruston - All Too Well Lyrics

I walked through the door with you
The air was cold
But something 'bout it felt like home somehow, and I
Left my scarf there at your sister's house
And you've still got it
In your drawer, even now

Oh, your sweet disposition
And my wide-eyed gaze
We're singing in the car getting lost upstate
Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place
And I can picture it after all these days

And I know it's long gone and
That magic's not here no more
And I might be okay, but I'm not fine at all
Oh, oh, oh

'Cause there we are again on that little town street
You almost ran the red 'cause you were looking over at me
Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well

Photo album on the counter
Your cheeks were turning red
You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed
And your mother's telling stories 'bout you on the tee ball team
You told me about your past, thinking your future was me

And I know it's long gone and
There was nothing else I could do
And I forget about you long enough
To forget why I needed to

'Cause there we are again in the middle of the night
We're dancing round the kitchen in the refrigerator light
Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah

Maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
'Til you tore it all up
Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well
And you call me up again just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
'Cause I remember it all, all, all
Too well

Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again
But I'm still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone
But you keep my old scarf
From that very first week
'Cause it reminds you of innocence
And it smells like me
You can't get rid of it
'Cause you remember it all too well, yeah

'Cause there we are again when I loved you so
Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

Wind in my hair, you were there, you remember it all
Down the stairs, you were there, you remember it all
It was rare, I was there, I remember it all too well

    Why do I want to break into "You're my velvet Eeeelvis" in the middle of this so bad?

    Taylor Swift approved 👍✅
    Some covers of this song that I've watched just doesn't have 'that emotion'

    You captured it perfectly!!!

  5. Dragica Varkaš

    Favorite TS song.... Love the cover

  6. Ba dum Tiss

    Heard This On The Radio At Work Today ! Just Had To Look It Up 💖

  7. Martin Santander

    A masterpiece!

  8. Anna Urie

    I love you Ruston,and I love all of your songs especially​ 1000graves and Faceplant and I was so stoked about the whole Dirt Emo thing but I have to be honest I'm not a fan of Taylor's music,I think she's a terrible singer and her lyrics are tacky af.But if you want to continue covering her songs that's cool too but I just wanted to put it out there that I'm really not fan of that girl.

    Please release this as a single!


    It's a Taylor Swift song

    Lindsey Mounce

    @Sofíaa I know. And if he releases it as a radio single it can finally have an opportunity to be nominated and win a Grammy we all know RED deserved

    still blows my mind how taylor swift stole matt nathanson’s lyric in this song.

    “and i forget about you long enough to forget why i need to”

    “i forget about you long enough to forget why i needed to”


    But the songs are about two completely different things. In context, the lines in both songs mean different things.

    K. Paul

    @44GlenCoCo exactly -- someone who claims to be a songwriter hasn't comprehended this well

    Polly Mackenzie

    i know tons of songs that have same phrases doesn't mean they've stolen them they're just singing their feelings

    Hannah E. K.

    The line isn’t that clever. I’m sure more than two people in the world have thought about it.


    She didn't "steal" it. People sometimes think about the same things. You're so ignorant.

  12. Melissa C

    Yessss. My fav TS song and you're such a genius, hope you get more recognition after these fucking amazing cover.
