    Official lyrics for "The Archer" written by Taylor Swift:
    I'm ready for combat
    I saw I don't want that
    But what if I do?
    'Cause cruelty wins in the movies
    I've got a hundred thrown out speeches I almost said to you
    Easy they come, easy they go
    I jump from the train
    I ride off alone
    I never grew up,
    It's getting so old
    Help me hold onto you
    I've been the archer
    I've been the prey
    Who could ever leave me darling...
    But who could stay?
    Dark side
    I search for your dark side
    But what if I'm all right, right, right, right here?
    And i cut off my nose just to spite my face
    Then hate my reflection for years and years
    I wake in the night
    I pace like a ghost
    The room is on fire
    Invisible smoke
    And all my heroes
    Die all alone
    Help me hold onto you
    I've been the archer
    I've been the prey
    Screaming who could ever leave me darling...
    But who could stay?
    'Cause they see right through me
    They see right through me
    They see right through me
    Can you see right through me?
    They see right through
    They see right through me
    I see right through me
    I see right through me
    All the king's horses, all the king's men
    Couldn't put me together again
    'Cause all of my enemies
    Started out friends
    Help me hold onto you
    I've been the archer
    I've been the prey
    Who could ever leave me darling...
    But who could stay?
    Who could stay?
    Who could stay?
    You could stay
    You could stay
    I'm ready for combat

              My theory is that when she “cut off her nose” she got nose surgery, and she hated the fact that she changed her face and ended up hating her reflection. And now she loves her body for what it is

                      When I heard this song at my first time,I have been thinking that the rhythm is better than Lover .It has a little quick rhythm. I really prefer this song as the main song for her new album

                        LOVER SONG REVIEW Track #5 The Archer Of course, track number 5 is the “All Too Well” of her album. The Archer is an 80s sad movie-like soundtrack, but actually, this gives me a fairytale-like vibe, like a prequel or sequel song to “Long Live”. It’s like a message to one of the “Band of thief in ripped jeans who ruled the world”. Listen to “All the King’s horses, all the King’s men” part and you’ll see. It’s sad, and Taylor is the best sad song composer. The song also reminds me of the lyrics in “New Year’s Day” - Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you.

I dont know why but I found that album really enjoyable. I think it might even be my favorite album of all time. I'm a writer and I guess it just inspires me so much and gives me an imaginary connection to this fanesy world I've thought up. This album feels more like the aftermath of Reputation from the eyes of a really matured person whos seen a lot of heartbreak and problems and knows how to act in a way best of everyone.
