Clean (Taylor’s Version) Lyrics

[Verse 1: Taylor Swift]
The drought was the very worst, ah-ah, ah-ah
When the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst
It was months and months of back and forth, ah-ah, ah-ah
You're still all over me like a wine-stained dress I can't wear anymore

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift]
Hung my head as I lost the war
And the sky turned black like a perfect storm

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
The rain came pouring down
When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you
I think I am finally clean

[Verse 2: Taylor Swift]
There was nothing left to do, ah-ah, ah-ah
When the butterflies turnеd to dust that covered my whole room
So I punchеd a hole in the roof, ah-ah, ah-ah
Let the flood carry away all my pictures of you

[Pre-Chorus: Taylor Swift]
The water filled my lungs
I screamed so loud, but no one heard a thing

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
The rain came pouring down
When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you
I think I am finally clean

[Post-Chorus: Taylor Swift]
I think I am finally clean
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Said I think I am finally clean
Ah-ah-ah

[Bridge: Taylor Swift]
Ten months sober, I must admit
Just because you're clean, don't mean you don't miss it
Ten months older, I won't give in
Now that I'm clean, I'm never gonna risk it
The drought was the very worst, ah-ah, ah-ah
When the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst

[Chorus: Taylor Swift]
The rain came pouring down
When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you
I think I am finally clean
The rain came pouring down
When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you
I think I am finally clean

[Outro: Taylor Swift]
Finally clean
Think I'm finally clean
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Think I'm finally clean
