Taylor Swift – I Forgot That You Existed Lyrics

Play this song
[Spoken Intro]
So the clip that you’re about to hear
Is my preparation for a writing obsession
Um I was writing with two writers
I hadn’t ever worked with before
So I wanted to come in with an idea
That was pretty much all there
Melody and lyrics
Um, and so I had this idea
Called “I Forgot That You Existed”
And I wanted it to be really simple
I thought it might be a really fun way to open the album
Like basically kind of shrugging off
A lot of things
That you’ve been through that have
Been causing a lot of struggle and pain
And just one day you wake up and
You realize you’re indifferent
To… whatever caused you that pain
And so this is a clip of me
Just trying to tinker around on the piano
Trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it
And you can hear the end result on the album
But this is where it started
[Sung]
I forgot that you existed
Thought I’d miss you but I didn’t
And it was so nice
I forgot that you existed
I forgot that you existed
Thought I’d miss you but I didn’t
And it was so nice
I forgot that you existed
Thought I’d miss you but I didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
How many days did I spend thinking
‘Bout how you did me wrong, wrong, wrong?
