E E B B A A
I used to think one day we'd tell the story of us

How we met and the sparks flew instantly
E E B B A A
And people would say "They're the lucky ones"

E E B B A A
I used to know my place was the spot next to you

Now I'm searching the room for an empty seat
E E B B A A
'Cause lately I don't even know what page you're on

B B C#m C#m
Oh, a simple complication
A A E E
Miscommunications lead to fallout
A A
So many things that I wish you knew
B B
So many walls up I can't break through

E E B B A A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room

And we're not speaking
E E B B A A
And I'm dying to know, is it killing you

Like it's killing me?
C#m C#m B B E E
I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
(E E) A A
When it all broke down
C#m C#m B B A A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

Next chapter

B B C#m C#m E E A A

E E B B
How'd we end up this way?
A A
See me nervously pulling at my clothes

And trying to look busy
E E B B A A
And you're doing your best to avoid me

E E B B A A
I'm starting to think one day I'll tell the story of us

How I was losing my mind when I saw you here
E E B B A A
But you held your pride like you should've held me

B B C#m C#m
Oh, I'm scared to see the ending
A A E E
Why are we pretending this is nothing?
A A
I'd tell you I miss you but I don't know how
B B
I've never heard silence quite this loud

E E B B A A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room

And we're not speaking
E E B B A A
And I'm dying to know, is it killing you

Like it's killing me?
C#m C#m B B E E
I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
(E E) A A
When it all broke down
C#m C#m B B A A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

B B C#m C#m E E A A
B B C#m C#m E E A A

E E
This is looking like a contest
A A
Of who can act like they care less
C#m C#m B B A A
But I liked it better when you were on my side

E E
The battle's in your hands now
A A
But I would lay my armour down
C#m C#m B B A A
If you said you'd rather love than fight

A A
So many things that you wish I knew
B B
But the story of us might be ending soon

E E B B A A
Now I'm standing alone in a crowded room

And we're not speaking
E E B B A A
And I'm dying to know, is it killing you

Like it's killing me?
C#m C#m B B E E
I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
A A
When it all broke down
C#m C#m B B A A E E B B A A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now, now, now

(A A)
And we're not speaking
E E B B A A
And I'm dying to know, is it killing you

Like it's killing me?
C#m C#m B B E E
I don't know what to say since the twist of fate
(E E) A A
'Cause we're going down
C#m C#m B B A A
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now

About this song

Taylor Swift explains the story behind "The Story of Us" on her official website:"The "Story of Us" is a song that I wrote about an awkward situation where, well… Let me just preface by saying that I have happened to run into exes in strange places lately. This is about one of those situations where the strange place that I ran into him was an awards show.I was seated a couple of seats away from him and there was so much that needed to be said, and neither one of us was willing to say it.
