drivers license - Olivia Rodrigo

The Experience: If I'm not perfect how dare I ask for respect and happiness? You said forever now I drive alone past your street...

The Vibe: Melancholy. Confusion.

The Topic: Heartbreak.

The Tension: I know we weren't perfect (no love is perfect) VS. I've never felt this way for no one (my love was trueVS. I just can't imagine how you could be so okay (the betrayal is that you didn't love me back).



Music video: Dark. Hurting. Confused. The road theme underlines the restlessness of a broken heart that can't find anywhere to rest.

The Meaning of drivers license: Love says forever. Does it ever not say forever? But that doesn't mean forever can't be a lie. Loves can be betrayed. Loves can break. Loves can fail. drivers license examines the tragedy of a love that breaks... and the deeper tragedy of a love that only breaks on one end.

Ask yourself: Why is love worth the risk?

Album:  - (2021)

LYRICS:

I got my driver's license last week
Just like we always talked about
'Cause you were so excited for me
To finally drive up to your house
But today I drove through the suburbs
Crying 'cause you weren't around

And you're probably with that blonde girl
Who always made me doubt
She's so much older than me
She's everything I'm insecure about
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
'Cause how could I ever love someone else?

And I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
Guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever now I drive alone past your street

And all my friends are tired
Of hearing how much I miss you but
I kinda feel sorry for them
'Cause they'll never know you the way that I do
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
And pictured I was driving home to you

And I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
Oh, and I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
I guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever now I drive alone past your street

Red lights
Stop signs
I still see your face
In the white cars
Front yards
Can't drive past the places
We used to
Go to
'Cause I still f-cking love you, babe

Sidewalks
We crossed
I still hear your voice
In the traffic
We're laughing
Over all the noise
God, I'm so blue
Know we're through
But I still f-cking love you, babe

I know we weren't perfect but I've never felt this way for no one
And I just can't imagine how you could be so okay now that I'm gone
Guess you didn't mean what you wrote in that song about me
'Cause you said forever now I drive alone past your street
Yeah, you said forever now I drive alone past your street
