On Taylor Swift's birthday, we celebrate her by jotting down our favorite lyrics from her latest album Midnights!
Taylor Swift is the queen of pop and alternative music and every time she released her songs, she gave fans the gift of a sleepless night and in turn, they supported her music by crying and dancing all at once. Her lyrics always hit home and the way swifties react to her songs leaves you mesmerized. She dropped her 10th studio album 'Midnights' in October which was an instant hit among swifties. This Midnights album consists of 13 stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout her life. Later she also went on to release a 'Midnights 3am edition' that had 7 additional songs as perfect as the previous album. The running joke of how Shakespeare takes notes from Taylor will never get old, and that is why on her birthday, we're here with our favorite lyrics that hit home from her Midnights album.
Starting off the album with 'Lavender Haze' was such top-tier artist behavior. We love a concept queen who serves right! Her entire discography looks like so many layers of different genres. But Folklore and Evermore fans were expecting more sad bops than upbeat pop. Taylor Swift also collaborated with Lana Del Rey on the album for its sole feature. Well, every word in her songs has a meaning, and the way she swiftly slides the double entendre is rather amazing. Someone said it right, "Taylor Swift is the music industry."
You'll either relate and cry or cry over not relating at all to her lyrics across the album!
"All they keep asking me (all they keep asking me)
Is if I'm gonna be your bride
The only kind of girl they see (the only kind of girl they see)
Is a one night or a wife"
"The burgundy on my t-shirt when you splashed your wine onto me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks, so scarlet, it was"
I'm the problem, it's me"
Snow On The Beach (feat. Lana Del Rey)
"You wanting me
But it's comin' down, no sound, it's all around
Like snow on the beach"
You're On Own, Kid
"Summer went away, still the yearning stays
I play it cool with the best of them
I wait patiently, he’s gonna notice me
It’s okay, we’re the best of friends"
"My boy was a montage
A slow-motion, love potion
Jumping off things in the ocean
I broke his heart 'cause he was nice"
"Did you leave her house in the middle of the night?
Did you wish you put up more of a fight
When she said it was too much?
Do you wish you could still touch ...her?
It's just a question"
"I don't start it but I can tell you how it ends"
"Best believe I'm still bejeweled when I walk in the room
I can still make the whole place shimmer
And when I meet the band, they ask, "Do you have a man?"
I can still say, "I don't remember"
"Uh oh, I'm falling in love
Oh no, I'm falling in love again"
"Sweet like honey, karma is a cat
Purring in my lap 'cause it loves me
Flexing like a goddamn acrobat
Me and karma vibe like that"
"Cause they said the end is coming
Everyone's up to something
I find myself running home to your
"What if I told you none of it was accidental?
And the first night that you saw me, nothing was gonna stop me
I laid the groundwork and then, just like clockwork
The dominoes cascaded in a line"
The Great War
"You drew up some good-faith treaties
I drew curtains closed, drank my poison all alone"
Bigger Than The Whole Sky
"Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You were bigger than the whole sky"
"Stumbled down pretend alleyways
Cheap wine, make believe it's champagne
I was taken by the view"
"You know there's many different ways that you can kill the one you love
The slowest way is never loving them enough"
"Nights are so starry, blood moonlit
It must be counterfeit
I think there's been a glitch"
Would've, Could've, Should've
"I regret you all the time
I can't let this go, I fight with you in my sleep
The wound won't close, I keep on waiting for a sign
I regret you all the time"
"Never take advice from someone who's falling apart
Never take advice from someone who's falling apart"
Happy Birthday, Taylor Swift, we love you always and forever.
