Taylor Swift releases new song, 'Mine': Mine lyrics

Country music sweetheart Taylor Swift announced last month that she would be releasing a new album, "Speak Now," on Oct. 25 and the first single, "Mine," is now streaming on several websites.

Reports say the single wouldn't appear on iTunes until August 16, but according to Swift's official website — and iTunes — it's available for purchase now.

Here are some of the lyrics to "Mine":

Chorus: Do you remember we were sitting there by the water?/ You put your arm around me for the first time/ You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter/ You are the best thing that’s ever been mine.

And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m./ You said everything was slipping right out of our hands/ I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street/ Brace myself for the goodbye/ Because it’s all I’ve ever known/ And you took me by surprise/ You said, ‘I’ll never leave you alone.’
