The 6 songs that explain Taylor Swift’s new album, Folklore

“It started with imagery,” wrote Taylor Swift in the preamble to her eighth studio album. “Visuals that popped into my mind and piqued my curiosity.” Among them: scars and battleships. Trees and sunshine. Wine and whiskey. And cardigans. Enough cardigans that one became the subject of an entire song.

Taylor Swift, No. 1 Again, Is Last to Benefit From an Obscure Chart Rule

Taylor Swift, who holds the No. 1 album for a second time with ” Folklore,” may be one of the last stars to benefit from Billboard’s so-called bundling rule, which lets artists sell albums with merchandise or concert tickets. Long criticized for distorting the charts, that guideline is set to be curtailed in October.

With release cycles moving faster than ever these days, discs and CDs are sometimes not ready to ship when a new title begins airing; In the case of vinyl, delays of weeks or even months are common.
Until recently, Billboard and Nielsen Music, which supply the magazine’s data, counted the first version sent to fans. For an album like “Folklore”, with CDs and LPs not immediately available, that meant the digital copy.

Who is Taylor Swift’s The 1 really about?

Taylor Swift

In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result, a collection of songs and stories that flowed like a stream of consciousness. Picking up a pen was my way of escaping into fantasy, history, and memory. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve.

[Verse 1]


I’m doing good, I’m on some new shit
Been saying “yes” instead of “no”
I thought I saw you at the bus stop, I didn’t though
I hit the ground running each night
I hit the Sunday matinée
You know the greatest films of all time were never made

[Pre-Chorus]


I guess you never know, never know
And if you wanted me, you really should’ve showed
And if you never bleed, you’re never gonna grow
And it’s alright now

[Chorus]


But we were something, don’t you think so?
Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
And if my wishes came true
It would’ve been you
In my defense, I have none
For never leaving well enough alone
But it would’ve been fun
If you would’ve been the one
(Ooh)

[Verse 2]


I have this dream you’re doing cool shit
Having adventures on your own
You meet some woman on the internet and take her home
We never painted by the numbers, baby
But we were making it count
You know the greatest loves of all time are over now

[Pre-Chorus]


I guess you never know, never know
And it’s another day waking up alone

[Chorus]


But we were something, don’t you think so?
Roaring twenties, tossing pennies in the pool
And if my wishes came true
It would’ve been you
In my defense, I have none
For never leaving well enough alone
But it would’ve been fun
If you would’ve been the one

[Bridge]


I, I, I persist and resist the temptation to ask you
If one thing had been different
Would everything be different today?

[Chorus]


We were something, don’t you think so?
Rosé flowing with your chosen family
And it would’ve been sweet
If it could’ve been me
In my defense, I have none
For digging up the grave another time
But it would’ve been fun
If you would’ve been the one
(Ooh)
