And when I fell hard
you took a step back
Without me, without me, without me

And he's long gone
when he's next to me
And I realize the blame is on me
~Taylor Swift

    No. Because you've not really asked a question. As I've noted on your other question, these are song lyrics which are not required to follow conventional grammar rules. – Catija Aug 2 '15 at 23:44
  • But, the only reason I know that is because I googled them... you need to add more information to your question if you want us to answer it. Please see the "Details, Please" post to improve your question content so that it is more clear. – Catija Aug 2 '15 at 23:46

    If you have particular parts of the song you don't understand, you need to point them out in the question and ask about them specifically. Use the edit button to make changes to your question and to add more detail. – Catija Aug 2 '15 at 23:49

This should not be treated as a single sentence, but as two different sentences. In the first the singer narrates past events in the past tense; in the second she tells the present outcome of those events in the present tense.

Note the marked change in the melody between the first "sentence" and the second; and note that the entire song (and its spoken intro) moves back and forth between past and present.
