I Almost Do Lyrics

I bet
This time of night you're still up
I bet
You're tired from a long hard week
I bet
You're sitting in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city
And I bet
Sometimes you wonder about me

And I just want to tell you

    Taylor had stated this " when you want to take someone back and you want to give it another try, but you know you can't. You can't because it's hurt you so deeply that you know that you couldn't bear to go through that again" obviously meaning that she can't answer this guys calls or messages because he hurt her very bad and she can't go through it again. This song has been rumored to be about Jake which would make sense, considering a lot of her songs are about him on Red. This song does a great job of explaining how one person can mean the world to you and you really want to give them another chance and try again but you know that you can't for the sake of not only you but for them . At the end of the song when she states " I bet this time of night you're still up, I bet you're tired from a long hard week , I bet you're sitting in your chair by the window looking out at the city and I hope sometimes you wonder about me." this is a crucial lyric because it means that she is hoping he still wonders about how she is doing and she hopes he still thinks about her like she does of him . And I think this song is relatable to a lot of people out there, and alose this song is Mina of like an " I forgive you" to Jake gyllenhall because in "All too well" she is very emotional and kind of angry because he was the one to destroy what they have . So I think this ballot is a way of forgiving him and sort of her final goodbye .

    P.s , I know this is a long explanation but I'm a huge swiftie and I have listened to all of her songs and I have memorized who each song is about .

    Im not sure but I think it was confirmed this was about Adam Young in reply to his cover of "Enchanted" and his letter. Its pretty simple though. Adam said he loved her and this was her reply to that. Taydam XD

    This song is About Adam Young of Owl City because first in the second verse she says "I bet you think I either moved on or hate you, cause each time you reach out there's no replay." Obviously talking about how she wrote Enchanted about him and then he responded with his own version of the song and a love letter and her never responding. Then she says "I bet this time of night you're still up" talking about Adam's insomnia. And finally the message in the song "I wrote this instead of calling" probably referring to Adam's shyness and how he said he feels awkward in phone calls. Oh one more thing if you want to know more about TayDam(Taylor and Adam) just Google it! Bye

    She misses this guy and wants so badly to call him,but it takes everything she has not to. She doesnt want another goodbye,so she keeps herself from calling him,but hopes that sometimes he wonders about her
