Song of the Week: “Red” by Taylor Swift

Oh reader.

After dedicating a bunch of loving Taylor Swift songs to “him” in It’s a Love Story, Baby Just Say Yes! I never thought I’d have to dedicate this one :/

Sigh, as much as I tried to make a poem out of this beautiful song Taylor made, I couldn’t. She wrote and sung each word perfectly, and I couldn’t have wrote it any better. Loving him was red 😦

Lyrics: “Red”

[Verse 1:]
Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin ending so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you’re already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all

[Chorus:]
Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all along
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

[Verse 2:]
Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there’s no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong

[Chorus:]
Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all along
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Oh, red
Burning red

[Bridge:]
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes
Tell myself it’s time now, gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible
When I still see it all in my head
Burning red
Loving him was red

[Chorus:]
Oh, losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all along
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
‘Cause loving him was red
Yeah, yeah, red
We’re burning red

[Post-Chorus:]
And that’s why he’s spinnin’ ’round in my head
Comes back to me, burning red
Yeah, yeah

His love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
