[Verse 1]
I know that you like me
And it’s kinda frightenin’ standin’ here waitin’, waitin’
And I became hypnotized by freckles and bright eyes, tongue-tied

[Pre-Chorus]
But now you’re so far away and I’m down
Feelin’ like a face in the crowd
I’m reachin’ for you, terrified

[Chorus]
‘Cause you could be the one that I love
I could be the one that you dream of
A message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you
You could be the one that I keep, and I
I could be the reason you can’t sleep at night
A mеssage in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ herе, hopin’ it gets to you

[Verse 2]
These days I’m restless
Workdays are endless, look how you made me, made me
But time moves faster, replaying your laughter, disaster

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause now you’re so far away and I’m down
Feelin’ like a face in the crowd
I’m reachin’ for you, terrified, ’cause

[Chorus]
‘Cause you could be the one that I love
I could be the one that you dream of
A message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you (It gets to you)
You could be the one that I keep, and I (I)
I could be the reason you can’t sleep at night (At night)
A message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you

[Bridge]
How is it in London? (London)
Where were you while I’m wondering (Wondering)
If I’ll ever see you again?
You could be the one that I love, mm-mm
And now I’m standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you

[Chorus]
‘Cause you could be the one that I love (Yeah, yeah)
I could be the one that you dream of
A message in a bottle is all I can do
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you (It gets to you)
You could be the one that I keep, and I
I could be the reason you can’t sleep at night (You can’t sleep at night)
A message in a bottle is all I can do (Yeah, yeah)
Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you (Yeah, yeah)

[Outro]
You could be the one that I love
You could be the one that I love, I love
And now I’m standin’ here, hopin’ this gets to youMessage in a Bottle is the 5th vault track from Red (Taylor’s Version). It is the first track Taylor wrote with Max Martin and Shellback. It seems to be connected thematically to Come Back… Be HereCome Back… Be Here is rumoured to be about Harry Styles so it is very likely that Message In A Bottle is also about the English singer.Swift commented on a fan’s TikTok that theorized “Message in a Bottle” would be a fun pop song:Message in a bottle is EXACTLY what you think it is!! First song I ever wrote with max [Martin] and Johan [Shellback], can’t wait for you to hear it 💃😘Yes! She used it in a Daily Beast interview that went live the day she released the original Red in October 2012:Songs for me are like a message in a bottle. You send them out to the world and maybe the person who you feel that way about will hear about it someday.
