Champagne Problems – Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift released a three-song album that William Bowery, Swift’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn, co-wrote with her. 
This album is based more on fiction than on her personal life. They are “17 stories”, from her new album Evermore, with different characters. This is not breaking news about her personal life.
The two’s song “Champagne Problems” tells a moving story and offers a rare display of Alwyn and Swift’s teamwork and co-writing skills.

“Champagne Problems,” according to Taylor, is “one in which lifelong college sweethearts had very different plans for the same night, one to finish and one to wear a ring.” Taylor and Joe wrote a song together about a rejected proposal. This occurs when many are waiting for the announcement of Joe and Taylor’s engagement.

Champagne Problems – Taylor Swift

[Verse 1]
You booked the night train for a reason
So you could sit there in this hurt
Bustling crowds or silent sleepers
You’re not sure which is worse

Because I dropped your hand while dancing
Left you out there standing
Crestfallen on the landing
Champagne problems
Your mom’s ring in your pocket
My picture in your wallet
Your heart was glass, I dropped it
Champagne problems

[Verse 2]
You told your family for a reason
You couldn’t keep it in
Your sister splashed out on the bottle
Now no one’s celebrating

Dom Pérignon, you brought it
No crowd of friends applauded
Your hometown skeptics called it
Champagne problems
You had a speech, you’re speechless
Love slipped beyond your reaches
And I couldn’t give a reason
Champagne problems

Your Midas touch on the Chevy door
November flush and your flannel cure
“This dorm was once a madhouse”
I made a joke, “Well, it’s made for me”
How evergreen, our group of friends
Don’t think we’ll say that word again
And soon they’ll have the nerve to deck the halls
That we once walked through
One for the money, two for the show
I never was ready so I watch you go
Sometimes you just don’t know the answer
‘Til someone’s on their knees and asks you
“She would’ve made such a lovely bride
What a shame she’s fucked in the head,” they said
But you’ll find the real thing instead
She’ll patch up your tapestry that I shred

And hold your hand while dancing
Never leave you standing
Crestfallen on the landing
With champagne problems
Your mom’s ring in your pocket
Her picture in your wallet
You won’t remember all my
Champagne problems

You won’t remember all my
Champagne problems
