The 'Begin Again' songstress sings about 'falling in love in an epic way' over the upbeat tempo in the latest track of her 'Red' album.
Taylor Swift's new song "State of Grace" has hit the web in its full version hours after it was previewed on "Good Morning America". Presenting an uptempo drum and guitar intro, the track has hopeful lyrics about falling in love.
"We fall in love until it hurts or bleeds or fades in time/ And I never saw you coming/ And I'll never be the same," she sings. "This is a state of grace/ This is a worth while fight/ Love is a ruthless game/ Unless you play it good and right."
Earlier on "GMA", the country music beauty explained the song's theme, "I wrote this song about when you first fall in love with someone, the possibilities. And, you know, kinda thinking the different ways it could go. It's a really big sound, to me, it sounds like the feeling of falling in love in an epic way."
"State of Grace" will be included in Swift's fourth studio album "Red" which is due in the U.S. on October 22. Building anticipation to the CD release, she has released some singles of the upcoming effort.
Its first single "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" debuted atop Billboard Hot 100, making it her first No. 1 song on the chart. "Begin Again", "Red" and "I Knew You Were Trouble" have also been made available for download on iTunes.
