Taylor Swift – “Sweeter Than Fiction” Lyrics

Hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground (oh, oh)
Only sound, only sound that you hear is “no”
You never saw it coming
Except when you started runnning
And now you come undone (I, I, I)

Seen you fall, seen you crawl on you knees (eh, eh)
Seen you lost in a crowd, seen you colors fade
Wish I could make it better
Someday you won’t remember,
This pain you thought would last forever and ever

[Chorus]
There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, “I knew it all along”
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction

Just a shot, just a shot in the dark (oh, oh)
All you got, all you got are your shattered hopes
They never saw it coming
You hit the ground running
And now you’re on to something
I, I, I say

What a sight, what a sight when the light came on
Put me right, threw me right when you put them front
And in this perfect weather
It’s like we don’t remember
The rain we thought would last forever and ever

[Chorus]
There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, “I knew it all along”
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction

There you stand, next to me
All at once, the rest is history
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction, fiction

[Bridge]
I’ll be one of the many saying
Look at you now, look at you now, now
I’ll be one of the many saying
You’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud

I’ll be one of the many saying
Look at you now, look at you now, now
I’ll be one of the many saying
You’ve made us proud, you’ve made us proud, proud

And when they call your name
And they put your picture in a frame
You know that I’ll be there time and again
‘Cause I you loved when

When you hit the ground, hit the ground, hit the ground, oh oh
Only sound, only sound that you hear is “no”
Now in this perfect weather
It’s like we don’t remember
The rain we thought would last forever and ever

[Chorus]
There you stand, ten feet tall
I will say, “I knew it all along”
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction

There you stand, next to me
All at once, the rest is history
Your eyes are wider than distance
This life is sweeter than fiction, fiction

    wow. this is actually pretty good! probably will end up buying it in itunes. sure is a lot better than that tacky new gaga song.

  • Sarah

    Very 80ish! Reminds me of the song from Pretty In Pink. I like it!

  • Dan

    Pretty decent for a contemporary pop song. Better than the new Gaga & Bieber song, that’s for sure.

  • JENNy

    AH CATCHY!

  • Steven

    Gave it a listen since everyone’s talking about it on twitter. It’s cute.

    P.S. Good job on posting the YouTube Video, JJ (*hashtag* NoteTheIrony). People should actually buy it on iTunes ¬.¬

  • UNCLE BOB

    12 marketing troll accounts pulling this track for a movie no one will ever see. 1 mention of Twitter that doesn’t care about the song or the movie. Taylor Swift is now relying on junk songs for below 4th-grade movies that will forever be unseen and unheard of. Smart move, Taylor! Glad your music career is going so well!!!! KABOOM!!!! CRASH!!!! BURN!!!! 8(

  • Kat

    Be paid weekly and earn like a boss! Since I started with my online business, I earn $62 every 15 minutes! My best friend has been averaging 11k for months now and he works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do Jobs95.(com

    she says “slipped when you started runnin’” not “EXCEPT when you started runnin’”

  • whatever

    @Avril:

    lolno thank u

  • Taylor>>>> Life

    love, love, love taylor! this song is incredible! I agree with everyone. I think it is very 80′s like. I l o v e this so much. <3 I honestly cant understand how people dont like taylor, she is beautiful, funny and kind. SHe can sing, and she is pretty damn attractive.

  • Effy

    The annoying thing is that this is in the top COUNTRY hits. Swift hasn’t been country in years and people need to realize that.

  • Maddie

    Taylor Swift is a genius hitmaker! Great knack for writing/producing songs and addictive voice to listen to. “Proved me right, proved me right, when you proved them wrong.” ;)

  • Avril

    @Effy: If this is on top of country hits then maybe you are the one who needs to realize that she IS still Country ;)

  • Millicent

    OMG I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE TAYLOR SOOOOOOO MUCH THIS IS SUCH A GOOD SONG!!!! i just wish people would just stop judging someone they dont know! how would you like it if i just came up to you and started hating??? just think about that hey?
    this swifty is over and out

  • Avril

    @whatever: It’s ok, she doesn’t need you to lol ;)

  • Warren

    It’s OK, but not her best.

  • http://justjared ashley malhotra

    i love taylor swift i am her biggest fan you don t know how much i love u taylor

  • http://justjared ashley

    i agree

  • http://www.wattpad.com/user/touchmeharry Alexus

    I am a very big Taylor Swift fan but I am being completely honest when I say that this isn’t a very good song. It’s got a nice meaning behind it but the beat is just horrible and the timing of the words are irrational. I dislike it strongly. I don’t like all the extra words (for example “I, I, I” or “oh, oh” and “eh, eh”) because it just doesn’t fit into the song.

    It would be better if it were more played down, you know? Without all of the shitty background music and more of just her singing. The lyrics are cliche, as well.

    I’m disappointing in Taylor for this one. If her next album is like this song, I won’t be happy.

    @Avril:

    That doesn’t mean anything. Have you ever listened to country? It’s a lot different than this. Country, curly-haired Taylor was my favorite Taylor and I hate to say it, but that’s not who she is anymore. She’s turned into some kind of cross between wannabe indie and pop.

  • http://www.wattpad.com/user/touchmeharry Alexus

    @Alexus: I meant disappointed, not disappointing.
