"Wonderland" is the fourteenth track on the deluxe edition of Taylor Swift's fifth studio album, 1989. It is a fan favourite, with many covers on YouTube and Instagram. The song references to the Lewis Caroll book "Alice In Wonderland" and has a major theme of insanity. The song explains how Swift's relationship is like Alice's Trip in Wonderland.

Taylor has performed this song as a surprise song during a few shows from The 1989 World Tour and the Reputation Stadium Tour.

Lyrics

Flashing lights
And we took a wrong turn
And we fell down a rabbit hole

You held on tight to me
'Cause nothing's as it seems
And spinning out of control

Didn't they tell us
"Don't rush into things"
Didn't you flash your green eyes at me
Haven't you heard what becomes of curious minds?

Didn't it all seem new and exciting?
I felt your arms twisting around me
I should've slept with one eye open at night

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And we pretended it could last forever

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And life was never worse but never better

In wonderland, in wonderland
In wonderland, in wonderland

So we went on our way
Too in love to think straight
All alone, or so it seemed
But there were strangers watching
And whispers turned to talking
And talking turned to screams

Didn't they tell us
"Don't rush into things"
Didn't you flash your green eyes at me
Didn't you calm my fears
With with a Cheshire cat smile?

Didn't it all seem new and exciting?
I felt your arms twisting around me
It's all fun and games 'til somebody
Loses their mind

But darling, we found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And we pretended it could last forever

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And life was never worse but never better

In wonderland, in wonderland
In wonderland, in wonderland

I reached for you, but you were gone
I knew I had to go back home
You searched the world for something else
To make you feel like what we had
And in the end, in wonderland
We both went mad

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And we pretended it could last forever

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And life was never worse but never better

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And we pretended it could last forever

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And life was never worse but never better

In wonderland
