ALL SONGS

Lover - Taylor Swift

The Experience: Can I go where you go? Love is only love if it's forever and everwhere.
The Vibe: Deep happiness.
The Topic: Love.
The Value: Commitment.
The Tension: You're my lover (We have happiness now) vs. Can we always be this close (Hope/fear: I want it to last forever).

Music video: The girl with the winter dollhouse turns out to be the greatest proof of forever: their daughter. The dollhouse - their life together - is the gift they've given her: commitment to be together forever and everywhere.

The Meaning of Lover: True to my lover. That's love's dream. And love's victory, when it actually happens. The recipe? Always: forever and ever. Everywhere: at every table I'll save you a seat. Total: with every guitar string scar on my hand.

Ask yourself: Are you willing to commit to true love?

Album: Lover - 2019

LYRICS:


We could leave the Christmas lights up 'til January
This is our place, we make the rules
And there's a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear
Have I known you twenty seconds or twenty years?

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And oh, take me out and take me home
You're my, my, my, my
Lover

We could let our friends crash in the living room
This is our place, we make the call
And I'm highly suspicious that everyone who sees you wants you
I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And oh, take me out and take me home (Forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my
Lover

Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?
With every guitar string scar on my hand
I take this magnetic force of a man to be my
Lover
My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue
All's well that ends well to end up with you
Swear to be over-dramatic and true to my
Lover

And you'll save all your dirtiest jokes for me
[Music video: Why did the ketchup blush? She saw the salad dressing.]
And at every table, I'll save you a seat
Lover

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And oh, take me out and take me home (Forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my
Oh, you're my, my, my, my
Darling, you're my, my, my, my
Lover
