This choice of song is one that I discovered again recently.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Elevator buttons and morning air
Strangers' silence makes me want to take the stairs
If you were here, we'd laugh about their vacant stares
But right now, my time is theirs
Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury's out, but my choice is you

[Chorus]
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water's rough
But this love is ours

[Verse 2]
You never know what people have up their sleeves
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
But I don't care, 'cause right now, you're mine

[Chorus]
And you'll say
Don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water's rough
But this love is ours

[Bridge]
And it's not theirs to speculate if it's wrong
And your hands are tough, but they are where mine belong
And I'll fight their doubt and give you faith
With this song for you

[Breakdown]
'Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos
Will be ignored
'Cause my heart is yours

[Chorus]
So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
Don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
But they can't take what's ours
They can't take what's ours

[Outro]
The stakes are high, the water's rough
But this love is ours



Is this a song that you enjoy? Has it been a while since you have heard it?

I like the line, "People throw rocks at things that shine." I forget about this song, but I enjoy it.

A really nice track that has a certain low-key charm to it with an understated beautiful melody. But wouldn't rank this as one of Taylor's best or strongest tracks from her Country output, or even overall. This did get kinda overshadowed by her more glossier numbers & do feel there were better tracks on 'Speak Now' that could have been singles, namely 'Enchanted' or if it had to be one of the deluxe tracks, then 'If This Was A Movie' (which did out-peak 'Ours' in the USA with a #10 peak). Also it was obvious this was only released in order to commercially rinse the 'Speak Now' for all its worth.

Ours is super cute, not the biggest highlight of Speak Now but I thought it was perfect for the last single of the era. Her last country airplay #1 if I remember right (not counting Highway Don't Care)!

I adore Ours so much heart.gif

It was always a track I could give and take for a while but it really hit me hard about 2-3 years ago <3 The first verse and the bridge are the highlights for me, the lyrics in both are so good <3 It's such a beautiful song and has really cemented itself as an underrated favourite of mine recently wub.gif

Lemme give it a listen now! (</3 at it being the only SN deluxe track available on spotify)
