One month after its release, I still can’t get enough of Taylor Swift’s newest album Lover. Since last month, I don’t think there was a day I didn’t listen to it. From the shower to commute and work, songs from Lover dominate my other playlists.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going gaga over it. Swift’s previous albums from Reputation to Fearless were good as well. I remember Reputation being dark and mature. It’s perfect for me when it was first released—when I was also feeling “revengeful.” Now that Lover is out, I feel like the theme perfectly describes what and where I am in my life right now: happy and content.
I’ve been a fan of Swift since “Teardrops on My Guitar” era. That’s almost 15 years already! Until today, I still listen to some of her past albums. I don’t know about you, but I like the mystery and the story behind her songs. They are just very lyrical.
The following are my best and thought-provoking lyrics from Lover. Obviously, there are a lot of good lyrics in the album for when you have those darn feelings. But these are the ones that really spoke to me.
I forgot that you existed. And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
They say home is where the heart is. But that’s not where mine lives
Paper cut stains from our paper thin plans
Desperate people find faith, so now I pray to Jesus too
Why’d I have to break what I love so much?
My love was as cruel as the cities I lived in
If I was out flashin’ my dollas
I’d be a bitch, not a baller
They’d paint me out to be bad
So it’s okay that I’m mad
I wanna be defined by the things that I love
Not the things I hate
Not the things I’m afraid of, I’m afraid of
The things that haunt me in the middle of the night, I
I just think that you are what you love
