State of Grace Lyrics

I'm walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives
And all we know is touch and go
We alone with our changing minds
We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds, or fades in time

And I never saw you coming
And I’ll...

    This is definitely one of my favorite songs off of Red, it's one that shows just how poetic Taylor is and it brings her skills to life. This song is about love and how it's a game that you play hints: " love is a ruthless game unless you play it good and right" love ends in two ways , you either end up hurt or you end up happy . Taylor has said that she thinks love doesnt last forever , it only lasts until it breaks or just fades . "We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds , or fades in time". This song is also said to be about Jake gyllenhall (her ex boyfriend, who she has wrote many songs about) . Taylor is a Sagittarius and so is Jake which is why " twin fire signs, four blue eyes " saying that they have the same sign and of course they both have blue eyes . This relationship failed on both of their behalf , Taylor tends to use colors as a metaphor a lot in red which brings up another lyric " so you were never a saint and I loved in shades of wrong , we learn to live with the pain mosaic broken hearts" stating that Jake had his faults but so did she. They eventually learned to live with the pain their pasts caused them. Mosaic broken hearts is two cracked pieces that fit together which describes them two as whole . At the end Taylor says " and I never saw you coming , and I'll never be the same" pretty self explanatory, but she is saying it was unexpected yet it changed her . Which she has mentioned in her song " All Too Well" another song about Jake on red . " I'd like to be my old self again but I'm still trying to find it "

    I hoped that help some of you who were confused about the meaning .

    State Of Grace is so beautiful! , this song definitely could make a change in someone life!.
    It's about when you first fall in love with some one! , its makes so many probabilities goes in your head and it makes you thinking about.. the relationship that you have! how it go and where! how could you make it go in the right way! , and how could you play ''LOVE GAME'' , it's a really hard game , this is sound !! , love is grace! so you should be careful to make it a grace for ya! , and she says ''Love Is Ruthless Game Unless You Play It Good And Right'' , so that's make it so clear.

    It's about the world going on around you and you not realizing you've fallen for someone, but when it hits you, you realize you never saw it coming and you're never going to be the same.
    As soon as that person comes into your life, all the walls you built up, they tear down.
    You and your lover aren't perfect. But you are perfect for eachother.

    I think State of Grace is about that moment where you just realize you really do like someone, and you both fall for each other. When you're both stuck in that sort of trance, in the State of Grace.
