Wonderland - Taylor Swift



The Experience: We took a wrong turn and we fell down a rabbit hole... And in the end in wonderland we both went mad. Everyone wants love. And so many people mistake something else for it, and only figure it out when it's too late...



Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Wonderland: After Blank Space, Taylor Swift continues exploring dysfunctional relationships. Wonderland is that suferfictial high that absorbs you, that mesmerizes you, that catches you up... and then throws you down hard when it's too late and the damage is done, just like that sudden sour note at the word mad. It's wrong, it sounds horrible. But it's oh so coherent with the frenetic feel of the whole song.

Ask yourself: Are you in love or in wonderland?

LYRICS:

Flashing lights and we 
Took a wrong turn and we 
Fell down a rabbit hole.

You held on tight to me 
'Cause nothing's as it seems
I'm spinning out of control.

Didn't they tell us don't rush into things?
Didn't you flash your green eyes at me?
Haven't you heard what becomes of curious minds?

Ooooo

Didn't it all seem new and exciting?
I felt your arms twisting 'round me
I should have slept with one eye open at night. 

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And we pretended it could last forever
aye
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And life was never worse but never better
aye aye

Aye [x5]
In wonderland 
Aye [x5]
In wonderland 
Aye [x5]
In wonderland 
Aye [x5]
In wonderland 

So we went on our way 
Too in love to think straight 
All alone or so it seemed. 

But there were strangers watching
And whispers turned to talking
And talking turned to screams.

Oooooh

Didn't they tell us don't rush into things? 
Didn't you flash your green eyes at me?
Didn't you calm my fears with the Cheshire cat smile?

Ooooo

Didn't it all seem new and exciting?
I felt your arms twisting 'round me
It's all fun and games 'til somebody loses their mind.

But darling, we found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And we pretended it could last forever
aye
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it
And life was never worse but never better
Aye Aye

Aye [x5]
In wonderland 
Aye [x5]
In wonderland 
Aye [x5]
In wonderland 
Aye [x5]
In wonderland 

I reached for you but you were gone
I knew I had to go back home 
You search the world for something else to make you feel like what we had
And in the end in wonderland we both went mad.

Oooooh

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it 
And we pretended it could last forever (last forever)
aye aye
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it (got lost in it)
And life was never worse but never better (never better)
aye aye

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it (wonderland)
And we pretended it could last forever (in wonderland)

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it (wonderland)
And life was never worse but never better
In wonderland
