You talk to your girlfriend.
She is angry
She's crazy about something you said
Because she does not understand your mood as I do
I am in my bedroom
It's a typical Tuesday night.
I hear the kind of music she does not like
And she will never know your story like me. '
But she wears short skirts
I wear t-shirts
She is the captain of joy
And I'm in the stands
Dreaming of the day you wake up
And discover that what you are looking for has always been here
If you can see, it's me who understands you
I'm here all the time, why do not you see?
You are next to me
You are next to me
Stroll the streets with you and your worn jeans
I can not help but think that this should be so
Laugh on a park bench and think of me
Hey, it's not that easy
And you have a smile that could enlighten the whole city
I have not seen it for a long time since she knocked you out
You say you’re good
I know you better than that
Hey, what are you doing with a girl like that?
She wears high heels
I'm wearing slippers
She's a happy captain and I'm in the bleachers
If you see, I understand you
I'm here all the time, why do not you see?
You are next to me
Wait and wait at your back door
All this time, as you could not know
Baby you belong to me
You are next to me
Oh, I remember you came home in the middle of the night
I'm the one who makes you laugh
If you know you're about to cry
And I know your favorite songs.
And you tell me about your dreams
I think I know where you belong
I think I know you’re mine
Do not you see that I understand you?
I'm here all the time, why do not you see?
You are next to me
Wait and wait at your back door
All the time
How can you not know that?
Baby you belong to me
You are next to me
You are next to me
Have you ever thought that?
You are next to me
You are next to me
I deleted the chorus so its only on here once, and at the end. yes I am always bored
Your eyes shined
Like Georgia
Stars
And
You didn't
Believe me yet and

The haters
Hated
And you
Just
Waited
And
Waited
And
Waited
And
Waited

Like Repunzel
Or Amy
Adams

I'll read that
Letter if it's still down there
I'll get on my knees and weep
With the girl in
September

If she comes
American
Idiots
May be fooled
By you
But
I see straight
Through you
Trans
Parent
As
Glass
Or
Ice

...
It's hard not to find it all
A little bitter sweet
And lookin' back
On all of that
It's nice to believe
But when you think

"Tim McGraw"
I hope you think my favorite song
Queen
...
Has
Her crown
Now
...
Those eyes
She always had
Those magic
Eyes

shake it off? ive tried but it hasn’t gone too well. you see, in my wildest dreams i’m clean and he does not belong with me but we all love a good love story and i think she knew that when she wrote fearless. we dream of the white horse but it doesn’t come around it never. ever. does. and i think she knew that too. which is good because to be honest i’m sick of waiting. one of the Kardashian's called my girl a snake so it goes but she can do no wrong she really cant. even when she says she did something bad she cant do no wrong. she’s the queen of my heart to be honest so dont blame me, her love makes me crazy. i think she would understand.
inspired by taylor's new single, "ME!" :)

we're both preceded by our reputation

we want the sun in our face

only to turn our backs to kiss the shadows.
this ain't for the best
my reputation's never been worse, so
you must like me for me.
tianna Nov 2018
come on, come on, don't leave me like this
i thought i had you figured out
something's gone terribly wrong, you're all i wanted
come on, come on, don't leave me like this
i thought i had you figured out
can't breathe whenever you're gone
can't turn back now, I'm haunted


- a song by Taylor Swift
sorry i haven't written in a long time
enjoy some Taylor Swift lyrics! <3

The way you loved him
Fast
Wreckless
Crazy
Was unhealthy

The way I loved him
Carefully
Splendidly
Fearlessly
Was heaven

So why
is he sticking around
to be with you
for longer
for more
forever

Why am I here
yet again
on the
side
lines

Watching a game
I could be winning
but instead
I have to cheer for
the opposing team

From the BBC today,


Excerpt

Why does Taylor Swift write so many one-note melodies?

"It's easy to get distracted by her celebrity, but Taylor Swift is a once-in-a-generation songwriter. From the very beginning, she's displayed a knack for melody and storytelling that most artists never master.

Take, for example, her first US number one, OUR SONG

Written for a high school talent show, it's a fairly typical tale of teenage romance until the final lines: "I grabbed a pen / And an old napkin / And I wrote down our song."

That's smart, self-assured songwriting for someone who wasn't old enough to vote. Notably, the lyrics insert the musician directly into the narrative - something she developed into a tried and tested trope.

But Our Song also establishes another of Taylor's trademarks: The one-note melody.

Excerpt

Repetitive melodies that centre around a single note are part of that appeal. They emphasise her relatability by mimicking the cadence of speech.

"They emphasise her relatability by mimicking the cadence of speech."

"They emphasise her relatability by mimicking the cadence of speech."

"They emphasise her relatability by mimicking the cadence of speech."

Rebuttal

Rhyme sells because the people you are selling too can remember your lyrics. They can relate to your song but if they cannot sing it themselves putting themselves in the 'first-person perspective narrative' they cannot feel as-if they have BECOME the artist and are living that moment as they remember it. Taylor Swift sings about teenage love and angst something EVERYONE ON EARTH understands.

ALL POETRY BEGAN AS RHYME IN SONG.

Cadences are singing statements that confer a discipline and unity.

Song acts as a catharsis. The artist shares their pain in a way that is universally understood. If you want to sell a rock, literally a pebble, you will not sell it if it doesn't look like a rock. If it doesn't do what rocks do. If it is not what people remember a rock to be like. Nor will it sell if it is just like every other rock they have ever seen. It cannot convey an emotion unless it elicits emotion.

One cannot even begin to feel emotional if one cannot remember easily the past and that includes lyrics one has heard that evoked said emotional state.

It is horrifying to see HOW BADLY EVERYONE INSISTS that rhyme be obliterated in exchange for an intellectual or individual perspective NOT SHARED BY THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE.

If you want to sell and make money you better start thinking about the 99% of people who are not geniuses.

If your sole goal in life is to attract a genius to give you a great job because of how, "smart," they perceive you to be then fine.

You are not an artist.

You are an employee.
