It's been a week since Taylor Swift dropped her 8th studio album, and I still haven't stopped listening to it OR thinking about it. So I thought I would share my favorite lyrics from each song here with you guys! Shall we?

the 1

"We never painted by the numbers, baby
but we were making it count.
You know the greatest loves of all time are over now..."


"I knew you
tried to change the ending,
Peter losing Wendy, I
I knew you
leavin' like a father
running like water"

the last great american dinasty

"I had a marvelous time ruining everything"


"I'm not your problem anymore,
so who am I offending now?"

my tears ricochet

"You had to kill me, but it killed you just the same.
Cursing my name, wishing I stayed
you turned into your worst fears.
And you're tossing out blame, drunk on this pain
crossing out the good years"

i love the simpleness and vulnerability from the album's photoshoot and aesthetics


"And I'm still a believer, but I don't know why
I've never been a natural, all I do is try, try, try"


"And though I can’t recall your face,
I still got love for you."


"So much for summer love and saying "us"
'cause you weren't mine to lose."

this is me trying

"They told me all of my cages were mental,
so I got wasted like all my potential.
And my words shoot to kill when I'm mad
I have a lot of regrets about that"

illicit affairs

"You showed me colors you know I can't see with anyone else.
Don't call me "kid," don't call me "baby",
look at this idiotic fool that you made me
You taught me a secret language I can't speak with anyone else."

seven lyrics on the left and invisible strings lyrics on the right

invisible string

"Time, mystical time
cutting me open, then healing me fine"

mad woman

"It's obvious that wanting me dead
has really brought you two together"


"With you I serve, with you I fall down, down
watch you breathe in, watch you breathing out, out"

"The worst thing that I ever did
was what I did to you"


"All these people think love's for show
but I would die for you in secret"


"Don't want no other shade of blue but you
no other sadness in the world would do"

My favorite songs are exile, the 1 and the last great american dinasty, but I truly love them all! I also can't wait to listen to 'the lakes', the deluxe version song that will be available on physical copies of the album. I hope you liked the article and if you haven't listened to folklore, make sure you do so. I'm sure you'll love it!
