    Official lyrics for "The Archer" written by Taylor Swift:
    I'm ready for combat
    I saw I don't want that
    But what if I do?
    'Cause cruelty wins in the movies
    I've got a hundred thrown out speeches I almost said to you
    Easy they come, easy they go
    I jump from the train
    I ride off alone
    I never grew up,
    It's getting so old
    Help me hold onto you
    I've been the archer
    I've been the prey
    Who could ever leave me darling...
    But who could stay?
    Dark side
    I search for your dark side
    But what if I'm all right, right, right, right here?
    And i cut off my nose just to spite my face
    Then hate my reflection for years and years
    I wake in the night
    I pace like a ghost
    The room is on fire
    Invisible smoke
    And all my heroes
    Die all alone
    Help me hold onto you
    I've been the archer
    I've been the prey
    Screaming who could ever leave me darling...
    But who could stay?
    'Cause they see right through me
    They see right through me
    They see right through me
    Can you see right through me?
    They see right through
    They see right through me
    I see right through me
    I see right through me
    All the king's horses, all the king's men
    Couldn't put me together again
    'Cause all of my enemies
    Started out friends
    Help me hold onto you
    I've been the archer
    I've been the prey
    Who could ever leave me darling...
    But who could stay?
    Who could stay?
    Who could stay?
    You could stay
    You could stay
    I'm ready for combat

    I played this to my mother.. she cried & said she loved the words & they described her life. Guess Taylor now has an older fan.

      I think she trys to show her insecurities in a relationship in this song, and just hopes that he doesn't give up on her.

    I don't get why people hate this song so much. It's the most emotional song of the album for me and it shows perfectly her skills in songwriting. Plus the instrumental part is AMAZING, I love the beat and the soft deep power behind it.

      That part to me means that she is always trying to find something bad in her relationships and she refers herself as the thing that is bad.

    It has a huge amount of reverb so does the other track LOVER. sounds strange to me.
