More Ice

I need more ice please
Give me more ice please
 
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Bust a check state to state like its tour life
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Bust a check state to state like its tour life
 
50 bands
Yeah that's 50 bands
Feds looking for me
Ooh, I do the running man
Run it up
Here we go again
I bust a move
Cop some jewels
Do the money dance
Avianne, I need more ice
Shyne jewelers, I need more ice
Eliantte, I need more ice
We hit Barney’s
We hit Saks and its all swipe
 
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Bust a check state to state like its tour life
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Bust a check state to state like its tour life
 
That’s your girlfriend
Well I know her
She calls me Batman
Cause she’s a joker
50 on the wrist
50 on the choker
And I tell her what to do
Like I own her
This is trap life
In a loaner
This is scam life
So I clone her
I be making moves
I be busting plays
Styling everyday
In my Helmut Lang
 
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Bust a check state to state like its tour life
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Tell the jeweler I need more ice
Bust a check state to state like its tour life
 

Scream

Take a minute to tell you right
And you can say what you want
Turn around every night
So now you're always going off
Doesn't matter what I done
Or if I even crossed the line
You start to holler, go in for blood
Girl, it doesn't have to be a fight
 
Throwing out the blame when you know it ain't my fault
Messing with my brain when you want to see me fall
There may come a time when I don't bother you at all
It isn't my call, it isn't my call
 
Hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I say hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I say hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I say hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
(I hear ya, I hear ya)
 
Take a minute to tell you now
And I don't have to raise my tone
Take the level and bring it down
I just want you to know
I got no trouble with what you said
I don't even think you're wrong
It's how you say it
You lose your head
Girl I'm standing right in front of you
 
Throwing out the blame when you know it ain't my fault
Messing with my brain when you want to see me fall
There may come a time when I don't bother you at all
It isn't my call, it isn't my call
 
Hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I say hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I say hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I say hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
(I hear ya, I hear ya)
 
Silence is golden
I used to think that silence was golden
Silence is golden
I used to think that silence was golden
(I hear ya, I hear ya)
 
Hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I said hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I said hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
I said hey, why you keep screaming at the top of your head?
(I hear ya, I hear ya)
 
Silence is golden
I used to think that silence was golden
Silence is golden
I used to think that silence was golden
(I hear ya, I hear ya)
 

Meanings of Life

When everything's been said
And everything's been seen
And after all is done
In every wildest dream
 
When every truth's been told
And every lesson learned
And every answer found
And every victory earned
 
What about us?
What about me?
What do we do?
What do we mean?
 
We do it all again
We do it all again
We do it all again
We do it all again
 

Unconditional

There's something that I've gotta say
I know we get caught up in the day by day
But it don't need to take a minute or two
To remind you
 
That we've been through so much
These words just ain't enough
It's unconditional
And I don't care at all
If it's dysfunctional
It's Unconditional
 
Sometimes I stop and I just watch you
And I wonder if you only knew
That I'm the richest person alive
'Cos I have known you and had you in my life
 
Though life can be so tough
It never changes us
'Cos it's unconditional
We fight, we break
And God knows we make mistakes
But it's unconditional
 
Home, home
Wherever you are is my home
 
I can't imagine life without you there
And I wanna say thank you for everything
 
And I wouldn't change a single part
Of this crazy journey of ours
It's unconditional
There's nothing you could ever do
To stop me loving you
It's unconditional
 

Mother of Northern Skies

Mother of Northern Skies
Did you abandon me? Please, shelter me
 
Alone, like a shadow amongst the trees
I never meant it to end like this, buried underneath
20 inches of pure white snow
Waiting patiently for any lover to show
 
I feel my life fade
The warmth in my heart decays
Fingers slowly turning numb
The will is lost, I succumb
 
I stood here for hours, waiting for you
Time has passed, but you're not closer
Your love fell like the snow on my skin
The cold of your heart kills the warmth within
 
I feel my love fade
Frost in my soul replaced
Eyes glazed in a forever stare
You're not there
 
I stood here for hours, waiting for you
Time has passed, but you're not closer
Your love fell like the snow on my skin
The cold of your heart kills the warmth within
 
Mother of Northern Skies
Did you remember me, please, rescue me
I never meant it to end like this, buried underneath
20 inches of pure white snow
Waiting patiently for any lover to show
 
Together, apart, I die alone
Together, apart, I die alone
 

Black Clouds

Shadows move in,
Through the clouds,
Through the air.
 
And the darkness moving closer.
I'm waiting
By the open door.
 
When the night falls
Down on me,
I will stay awake,
I won't run away
 
And the darkness moving closer.
I'm waiting
By the open door.
 

Perennial

This autumn feels like funeral to me
The longest song of grief
And not for what has passed
But for what shall last
 
Exhausted nature is so tragic and suicidal!
Oh how spectacular she is when she kills herself!
Death throes are slowly crawling to her toes
As the last leaf is falling off her head
 
I´m here with her undressed
With a few petals on my breasts
We shared opiates and let the landscapes do the same
I love your warmth but yet prefer to sleep in cold alone
We fixed our eyes up to the sky
To see a flight send us farewell
 
Goodbye!
May we see each other next time
So please, come back to celebrate this festival of life!
 
Then as now fly!
Today you reached the point of no return
Now cry! And then die!
Tomorrow I will meet you with your cells restored
 
Annual tradition of mass destruction
In the name of total reconstruction
My biggest source of confusion
The reason of decay and disillusion
Under permanent ice
We found a breathless paradise
No, we´re not dead,
No, we´re not dead,
Just enjoying coma
 
From the ashes of my roots
The new me will rise to live again
This is poetry of youth,
This is poetry of me and you!
 
From the ashes of my roots
The new me will rise to live again
This is poetry of youth,
This is poetry of me and you!
 

Tension

[Verse 1: Jack G]
I don't think I ever really had her
I don't think it even really matters
How'd we go from happy ever after?
To nothing but a beautiful disaster
 
[Pre-Chorus: Jack G]
Now I see you out here on your own, and you
Sippin' on the Hennessy, like you don't remember me
Girl, we both know, don't pretend
That we ain't got history
 
[Chorus: Jack G]
We got so much tension
Could cut it with a knife
Too much tension
But I don't really mind
All this tension
Is building up inside
And I wanna break it with you
 
[Verse 2: Jack J]
Girl, don't pretend I ain't seen you naked
I feel this tension between us
I think it's time we break it
I see you sippin' henny' straight
We ain't used to chasin'
My 21st down in Cabo
Yeah, what a vacation
Always playing hard to get
You had me so impatient
You had me going crazy
Well before the fornication
And yeah we fuck shit up
Girl we Florida State it
Both me and the memories sorta faded
But we got way more to make, and
If you like familiar places
We can take it to my room
Lyft, pullin' up in two
Used to tell me all the time
How the clubbin' ain't for you
So I say we make the move
What's there left to lose?
We already lost everything that we had
Yeah our rose died before it even had the chance to bloom
Shit, remember back when it was me and you? (girl)
 
[Pre-Chrorus: Jack G]
Now I see you out here on your own, and you
Sippin' on the Hennessy, like you don't remember me
Girl, we both know
Don't pretend (Bloom)
That we ain't got history (oh)
 
[Chorus: Jack G]
We got so much tension
Could cut it with a knife
Too much tension
But I don't really mind
All this tension
Is building up inside
And I wanna break it with you
So much tension
Could cut it with a knife
Too much tension
But I don't really mind
All this tension
Is building up inside (yah)
And I wanna break it with you
 
[Bridge: Jack G]
Now I see you out here on your own
Sippin' hennessy, yeah
Girl, I think you know that we both know, oh oh
 
[Chorus: Jack G]
That we got so much tension
Could cut it with a knife
Too much tension
But I don't really mind
All this tension
Is building up inside
And I wanna break it with you
So much tension
Could cut it with a knife
Too much tension
But I don't really mind
All this tension
Is building up inside
And I wanna break it with you

The Time Has Come

We've turned the page, we're at the end
You're at the last and final bend
I know for sure, and what is more
You should be glad the time has come
 
Standing in corners, always being hidden
Sitting on the grass for us it is forbidden
The choir sings, the organ plays
And you hope to be forgiven
 
The time has come for make believe
Let all the little things come true
It's in your mind, don't you look behind
Because the shadows are chasing you
 
Standing in corners, always being hidden
Sitting on the grass for us it is forbidden
The choir sings, the organ plays
And you hope to be forgiven
 
The time has come to face the facts
It's no use trying to turn back
The time has come, come on and take your bow
Life's rehearsal is for real
 

Even A Fool Learns To Love

There was a time, the laughing time
I took my heart to every party
They'd point my way
'How are you today?'
'Will you make us laugh? Chase our blues away?'
Their funny man won't let them down
No, he'd dance and prance and be their clown
That time, the laughing time
When even a fool learns to love
 
The clown turned around
And saw her smile, oh how she loved me
She'd clap her hands and beg me stay
To make her laugh, to make her life gay
Who wants the love of all the world
When here was love in the eyes of just one girl
That day, that precious day
When even a fool learns to love
 
But Oh, how I dreamed, a marvelous dream
Where all of the heavens or so it had seemed
With thunderous applause looked down from above
On a clown and an angel so much in love
I'll stay with my dream, it takes such a dream
And even a fool learns to love
 
That day, that hateful day
The joke turned stale, the game was over
Those spiteful words 'Oh, go away. Who wants to play?'
'It's getting late now.'
My world, my funny world
Had lost its mask and shown a broken heart
A time, a sour time
When even a fool learns to love
 
But Oh, how I dreamed, a marvelous dream
Where all of the heavens or so it had seemed
With thunderous applause looked down from above
On a clown and an angel so much in love
I'll stay with my dream, it takes such a dream
And even a fool learns to love
 

Feel it again

I used to dance at the devil's feet
He made me feel like I never wanna go home
I thought he'd save my soul
 
Sipping at the bottom of an empty glass
No I don't remember going to hell and back
But I know
I was out of control
 
I don't wanna do this anymore
Gotta pick myself up off the floor
 
Let it rain
Let it pour
Let the tears come down like a waterfall
I'd rather live with the pain than die feeling nothing at all
 
Throw another penny in the wishing well
One for the road and I tell myself to go home
It's better than being alone
 
Heart as cold as a block of ice
Playing with fire and I don't think twice
But I know
I'm sippin' away my soul
 
I don't wanna do this anymore
Gotta pick myself up off the floor
 
Let it rain
Let it pour
Let the tears come down like a waterfall
I'd rather live with the pain than die feeling nothing at all
 
So come on
Let it in
'Cause you can't feel love till you jump right in
So whenever it hits me I'm ready to feel it again
 
Let it rain
Let it pour
Let the tears come down like a waterfall
I'd rather live with the pain than die feeling nothing at all
 
So come on
Let it in
'Cause you can't feel love till you jump right in
So whenever it hits me I'm ready to feel it again
So whenever it hits me I'm ready to feel it again
So whenever it hits me I'm ready to feel it again
 

I'll Follow My Secret Heart

Don't be afraid I'll betray you
And destroy all the plans you have made
But even your schemes must
Make room for my dreams
So when all I owe you is pain
I'll still have something of my own
A little prize that's mine alone
 
I'll follow my secret heart
My whole life through
I'll keep all my dreams apart
Till one comes true
No matter what price is paid
What stars may fade above
I'll follow my secret heart
Till I find love
 
No matter what price is paid
What price is paid
I'll follow my secret heart
Till I find love
 

Unravel (English Cover)

Oh, won't you tell me?
Please just tell me
Explain how this should work
Well now who could it be?
That lives inside of me?
I'm broken, lying helpless, shattered
Surrounded by the world
And yet, you're smiling bright
Completely blind to life
 
My ruptured lungs; they were left this way
For once, I'm out of breath
The truth I seek, never felt so bleak but
I maintain my depth
Freeze
I'm breakable; unbreakable
I'm shaking yet, unshakable
Until the day that you find me
 
I'll stand here
Existing and feeling wretched existence
Consuming life-force til I grow distant
Don't bother searching for somebody like me
A fading no one
I don't want to hurt you, It's not my nature
A monster born from dusk to dawn can't be your saviour
Remember the 'me', the way I used to be
 
As who I still should be
 
The isolation spreads and tears
Those happy days, pierce into me
These lonely memories cease to care
They spread throughout my history
 
I’ll never move
I’ll never lose
I’ll never move
I’ll never lose
I’ll never move
I’ll never lose you!
Unraveling the world
 
At once, I start changing
Yet everything’s remaining
These lives I felt would join as one
They fade away before they’ve begun
I’m breakable; unbreakable
I’m shaking yet, unshakable
Until these hands 'contaminate' you
 
I’ll stand here
Existing and feeling wretched existence
Consuming life-force til I grow distant
Don't bother searching for somebody like me
A fading no one
This lonely space, held into place by someone crazy
Shall melt away like dawn to day as things get hazy
So please think of me, the way I used to be
 
As who I really should be
 
So don’t forget me
You can’t forget me
You won’t forget me
Please don’t forget me!
 
With changing inside I’m completely paralyzed
Remaining corrupt as I wish for paradise
Remember the 'me', the way I used to be
 
Oh, won’t you tell?
Oh, please just tell
Well now who could it be?
That lives inside of me?
 

Stay or run

Take me, don't leave me standing right here, no
We've come too far to just let cry knock us down
 
I know we said some things we really don't mean but
In the end it doesn't matter
All I know is there's a part of me missing when
We're not together
 
'Cause right now, all I really want is your love
And right now, there's just emptiness between us
I could pretend like I don't need no one
But if you asked me will I stay or run
I'd say 'Right now, all I really want is your love'
 
Funny how I get what I want
And not what I need
I can't, can't stand the distance
Come back to me
 
I wanna say some things I really don't mean
In the end it only matters
All I know is there's a part of me missing when
We're not together
 
'Cause right now, all I really want is your love
And right now, there's just emptiness between us
I could pretend like I don't need no one
But if you asked me will I stay or run
I'd say 'Right now, all I really want is your love'
 

Prius

I'm ridin' with cutters, I know that you see that
My banknote is brackin', I know that you B that
We pop out on opps 'fore they find out where we at
I'm carryin', ain't gon' bang it, I'm breakin' your kneecaps
This syrup I'm sippin' is dirty like tree sap
If I push that button, boy, it ain't no recap
Start smokin' with me, and boy, you gon' need rehab
I took the hit in the treehouse
Bought an AP on a bee-yotch
Miami, AP on a bee-yotch
I was in Gucci and Yeezy, you barely in FILA
Boy, it took you too long to realize
Choppers as tall as my brother
I don't really think that I own a gun shorter than these size
Hop out my whip in the neighborhood
I never been to where niggas is throwin' me peace signs
She love a real nigga
Sauce spill the shit, make her feel, nigga
Ain't been too many niggas since Master P to touch a mil' without deals, nigga
Today I watched my partner make 67 thousand off of blue bill pillers
Bro say he wouldn't touch a brick if that bitch fell out the sky and hit him
Bro say the pills like the bitch, and them cheeks just can't deny the rhythm
If them blues jumpin' like that, partner, I can see why you're buyin' in 'em
'Cause the bitch had me first class to pick up a hundred like Charlie Wilson
And this foreign that I'm ridin' in really drive itself, so I'm ghost ridin' the whip, wood twistin'
Blake Griffin horses, yeah, the Pistons
Flu game, Jordan's two 6's
Just in case I gotta fade away after I face shot one of you sum' bitches
Best believe every time a nigga play with me I'ma do somethin' vicious
Fuck wipe your nose, I'ma wash your dishes
Get your whole family off the wishlist
Extra, extra, extra, off the hitlist
Then go pimp my ride like Xzibit
 
Haha, drip
Drip god
Drip god, drip god
Ooh-wee
Drip god
(Drip god
Drip god)
 

I'm Still Here

You haven't looked at me
that way in years
You dreamed me up
and left me here
How long was I dreaming for
What was it you wanted me for
 
You haven't looked at me
that way in years
Your watch has stopped
and the pond is clear
Someone turn the lights back on
I'll love you til all time is gone
 
You haven't looked at me
That way in years
But I'm still here
 

While I Wait

Deep within my heart, I know you’ve won
I know you’ve overcome
And even in the dark, when I’m undone
I still believe it
 
I live by faith, and not by sight
Sometimes miracles take time
 
While I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship your name
While I wait, I will trust you
Lord, I’ll trust you all the same
 
When I fall apart, you are my strength
Help me not forget
Seeing every scar, you make me whole
You’re my healer
 
I live by faith, and not by sight
Sometimes miracles take time
 
While I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship your name
While I wait, I will trust you
Lord, I’ll trust you all the same
 
You’re faithful every day
Your promises remain
 
You’re faithful every day
Your promises remain
 
Though I don’t understand it
I will worship with my pain
You are God, you are worthy
You are with me all the way
 
While I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship your name
Though I don't have all the answers
Still I trust You all the same
 

Gone Fishin'

I'll tell you why I can't find you
Every time I go out to your place...
 
You gone fishin' (well how you know)
Well there's a sign upon your door (uh-huh)
Gone fishin' (I'm real gone man)
You ain't workin' anymore (could be)
There's your hoe out in the sun
Where you left a row half done
You claim that hoein' ain't no fun (well I can prove it)
You ain't got no ambition
 
Gone fishin' by a shady wady pool (Shangrila, really la)
I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool (should I twist your arm?)
I'd say no more work for mine (welcome to the club)
On my door I'd hang a sign
Gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'
 
Papa Bing (yeah Louis)
I stopped by your place a time or two lately
And you aren't home either
Well, I'm a busy man Louis. I got a lotta deals cookin'
I was probably tied up at the studio
You weren't tied up you dog
You was just plain old...
 
Gone fishin' (bah-boo-bah-boo-bah-boo-bah-boo-bah)
There's a sign upon your door (Pops, don't blab it around, will you?)
Gone fishin' (keep it shady, I got me a big one staked out)
Mmm, you ain't workin' anymore (I don't have to work, I got me a piece of Gary)
Cows need milkin' in the barn (I have the twins on that detail, they each take a side)
But you just don't give a darn (give 'em four bits a cow and hand lotion)
You just never seem to learn (man, you taught me)
You ain't got no ambition (you're convincin' me)
 
Gone fishin' (bah-boo-dah-do-dah-do-dah-do)
Got your hound dog by your side (that's old Cindy-Lou goin' with me)
Gone fishin' (mmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm)
Fleas are bitin' at his hide (get away from me boy, you bother me)
 
Mmm, folks won't find us now because
Mister Satch and Mister Cros
We gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'
Bah-boo-baby-bah-boo-bah-bay-mmm-bo-bay
Oh yeah!
 

Maga 2 Mugu

[Verse 1: Davido/Simi]
Baby, lemme caress your body
Baby, lemme press your body
We need to re-work the body
Your body, it needs my touching

He tell me say, my body turn Maga to Mugu
 

September

Do you remember
The 28th night of September?
Love was changin' the minds of pretenders
While chasin' the clouds away
Our hearts were ringin'
In the key that our souls were singin'
As we danced in the night, remember
How the stars stole the night away
 
Ahh-ahh-ahh
Hey, say that you remember
Ai, ai, dancin' in September
Ai, ai, never was a cloudy day
 
My thoughts are with you
Holding hands with your heart to see you
Only blue talk and love
Remember how we knew love was here to stay
Now, December found the love that we shared in September
Only blue talk and love
Remember the love that we share today
 
Ahh-ahh-ahh
Hey, say that you remember
Ai, ai, dancin' in September
Ai, ai, never was a cloudy day
Ahh-ahh-ahh
Hey, say that you remember
Ai, ai, dancin' in September
Ai, ai, golden dreams were shiny days
 
Do you remember
The 28th night of September?
 
Ahh-ahh-ahh
Hey, say that you remember
Ai, ai, dancin' in September
Ai, ai, never was a cloudy day
Ahh-ahh-ahh
Hey, say that you remember
Ai, ai, dancin' in September
Ai, ai, golden dreams were shiny days
And there never was a cloudy day
There never was a cloudy day
 

Baby the Rain Must Fall

Some men climb a mountain,
Some men swim the sea,
Some men fly above the sky,
They are what they must be.
But, baby the rain must fall,
Baby, the wind must blow,
Wherever my heart leads me
Baby, I must go, baby I must go.
 
I do not love for silver,
I do not love for gold,
My heart is mine to give away,
It never will be sold.
So, baby the rain must fall,
Baby, the wind must blow,
Wherever my heart leads me
Baby I must go, baby I must go.
 
I am not rich or famous:
But who can ever tell?
I don't know now what waits for me,
Maybe heaven, maybe hell.
Baby, the rain must fall,
Baby, the wind must blow,
Wherever my heart leads me
Baby I must go, baby I must go.
 

I Know Places (Voice Memo)

So over the years, a lot of people have asked me to sort of describe my song writing process from beginning to end. How long does it take, where do you write, what are the circumstances, do you start with music, do you start with lyrics, and my answer is always that it happens differently every time, and that's why I'm still so in love with song writing. So what I've done here is shown you three different examples of the beginning stages of these songs and how they each started, different ways. So I'll explain them to you and maybe that will help you understand kind of how I put songs together
 
I sent this voice memo to Ryan Tedder because I'd always wanted to work with him, and finally we scheduled some studio time. So I always wanna be prepared. I wanted to send him the idea that I was working on before we went into the studio just in case he wrote back and said 'I can't stand that, I wanna work on something else, think of something else'. So I just sat down with the piano, put my phone on top of the piano and just kind of explained to him where I wanted to go with the song, how I saw the melody sitting in and we ended up recording the song the next day and it ended up being on the record called 'I Know Places'. So this was the voice memo I sent to him the night before we ended up finishing the song
 
Okay so this is kind of this rough idea thing:
 
'Uh-uh-uh-oh, oh-oh-oh-i
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-i
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-i-i-i
 
Na na na na waiting at the back door
They're around and the vultures come around
And you know that they won't, they won't us
Say what they want 'bout, say what they want 'bout us
And you come and sing and listen
I would not think about it but I'm not done
Every know that a thing or two about it, thing or two about it, I
 
Cause they got the cages, they got the boxes
And guns
They are the hunters we are the foxes
And we run
 
Baby, I know places we won't be found
And they'll be chasing their tails trying to track us down
Cause I, I know places we can hide
I know places, I know places
 
Uh-uh-uh-i, uh-uh-uh-i, oh-oh-i, uh-uh-uh-i, no places'
 
Or whatever I don't know, but that's basically just like a dark, really dark lyric, like bridge thing and it's about like everyone is trying to get into and ruin a love or whatever and it's like you just, whatever, you know, and the chorus would just go to that major and just be like ooh chorus. So I hope you like it, it wouldn't be a piano thing
 

I Wish You Would (Voice Memo)

This is another way I've written songs recently. This is a song I did with Jack Antonoff, and Jack is one of my friends and so we're hanging out and he pulled out his phone and goes 'I made this amazing track the other day. It's so cool, I love these guitar sounds.' And he played it for me and immediately I could hear this finished song in my head, and I just said 'Please, please let me have that. Let me play with is, send it to me'. And so he sent it to me and I was on tour and this was me playing the track on my laptop recording me singing the vocal into my phone and it ended up being a song called 'I Wish You Would', because Jack wrote back and said 'I love that'. So this is another way of writing, it's writing to track.
 
Okay so this is an idea called 'I Wish You Would'. It's kind of about this guy who's like, he's driving down the street at the middle of the night and he passes his ex-girlfriend's house and it's like, he thinks she hate him, but she's still in love with him, very dramatic. This track is sick, hope you like this
 
'It's 2 am, in your car
Windows down, past my street the memories start
It's in the past
You drive straight ahead
You thinking that I hate you now
Cause you still don't know what I never said
 
I wish you would come back
Wish I never hung up the phone like I did
I wish you knew that'
 
Do you like it!?
 

1989 [Liner Notes]

'These songs were once about my life. They are now about yours.'
 
I was born in Reading, Pennsylvania on December 13, 1989.
 
In the world we live in, much is said about when we are born and when we die. Our birthday is celebrated every year to commemorate the very instant we came into the world. And a funeral is held to mark the day we leave it. But lately I've been wondering... what can be said of all the moments in between our birth and our death? The moments when we are reborn...
 
The debate over whether people change is an interesting one for me to observe because it seems like all I ever do is change. All I ever do is learn from my mistakes so I don't make the same ones again. Then I make new ones. I know people can change because it happens to me little by little every day. Every day I wake up as someone slightly new. Isn't it wild and intriguing and beautiful to think that every day we are new?
 
For the last few years, I've woken up every day not wanting, but needing to write a new style of music. I needed to change the way I told my stories and the way they sounded. I listened to a lot of music from the decade in which I was born and I listened to my intuition that it was a good thing to follow this gut feeling. I was also writing a different storyline than I'd ever told you before.
 
I wrote about moving to the loudest and brightest city in the world, the city I had always been overwhelmed by... until now. I think you have to know who you are and what you want in order to take on New York and all its blaring truth. I wrote about the thrill I got when I finally learned that love, to some extent, is just a game of cat and mouse. I wrote about looking back on a lost love and understanding that nothing good comes without loss and hardship and constant struggle. There is no 'riding off into the sunset,' like I used to imagine. We are never out of the woods, because we are always going to be fighting for something. I wrote about love that comes back to you just when you thought it was lost forever, and how some feelings never go out of style. I wrote about an important lesson I learned recently... that people can say whatever they want about me, but they can't make me lose my mind. I've learned how to shake things off.
 
I've told you my stories for years now. Some have been about coming of age. Some have been about coming undone. This is a story about coming into your own, and as a result... coming alive.
 
I hope you know that you've given me the courage to change. I hope you know that who you are is who you choose to be, and that whispers behind your back don't define you. You are the only person who gets to decide what you will be remembered for.
 
From the girl who said she would never cut her hair or move to New York or find happiness in a world where she is not in love...
 
Love, Taylor

Red [Liner Notes]

'There's an old poem by Neruda that I've always been captivated by, and one of the lines in it has stuck with me ever since the first time I read it. It says 'love is so short, forgetting is so long.' It's a line I've related to in my saddest moments, when I needed to know someone else had felt that exact same way. And when we're trying to move on the moments we always go back to aren't the mundane ones. They are the moments you saw sparks that weren't really there, felt stars aligning without having any proof, saw your future before it happened, and then saw it slip away without any warning. These are moments of newfound hope, extreme joy, intense passion, wishful thinking, and in some cases, the unthinkable letdown. And in my mind, every one of these memories looks the same to me. I see all of these moments in bright, burning red.'
 
'My experiences in love have taught me difficult lessons, especially my experiences with crazy love. The red relationships. The ones that went from zero to a hundred miles per hour and then hit a wall and exploded. And it was awful. And ridiculous. And desperate. And thrilling. And when the dust settled, it was something I’d never take back. Because there is something to be said for being young and needing someone so badly, you jump in head first without looking. And there's something to be learned from waiting all day for a train that's never coming. And there's something to be proud of about moving on and realizing that real love shines golden like starlight, and doesn't fade or spontaneously combust. Maybe I’ll write a whole album about that kind of love if I ever find it. but this album is about the other kinds of love that I’ve recently fallen in and out of. Love that was treacherous, sad, beautiful, and tragic. But most of all, this record is about love that was red.'

Speak Now [Liner Notes]

'Speak now or forever hold your peace,' the words said by preachers at the end of wedding ceremonies all over the world, right before the vows. It's a last chance for protest, a moment that makes everyone's heart race, and a moment I've always been strangely fascinated by. So many fantasize about bursting into a church, saying what they'd kept inside for years like in the movies. In real life, it rarely happens.
 
Real life is a funny thing, you know. In real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial, in fact, the most of us start to hesitate, for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I've begun to fear more than that is letting the moment pass without saying anything.
 
I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, and looking back regretting the moments we didn't speak up. When we didn't say 'I love you.' When we should've said 'I'm sorry.' When we didn't stand up for ourselves or someone who needed help.
 
These songs are made up of words I didn’t say when the moment was right in front of me. These songs are open letters. Each is written with a specific person in mind, telling them what I meant to tell them in person. To the beautiful boy whose heart I broke in December. To my first love who I never thought would be my first heartbreak. To my band. To a mean man I used to be afraid of. To someone who made my world very dark for a while. To a girl who stole something of mine. To someone I forgive for what he said in front of the whole world.
 
Words can break someone into a million pieces, but they can also put them back together. I hope you use yours for good, because the only words you’ll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.
 
What you say might be too much for some people. Maybe it will come out all wrong and you’ll stutter and you’ll walk away embarrassed, wincing as you play it all back in your head. But I think the words you stop yourself from saying are the ones that will haunt you the longest.
 
So say it to them. Or say it to yourself in the mirror. Say it in a letter you’ll never send or in a book millions might read someday. I think you deserve to look back on your life without a chorus of resounding voices saying ‘I could’ve, but it’s too late now.’
 
There is a time for silence. There is a time waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you’ll know it.
 
I don't think you should wait. I think you should speak now.
 
Love, Taylor
 
PS: To all the boys who inspired this album, you should've known. Wink smile

Fearless [Liner Notes]

Taylor's Letter
 
This album is called 'Fearless', and I guess I'd like to clarify why we chose that as the title. To me, 'Fearless' is not the absence of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you've been hurt before. Fearless is walking into your freshman year of high school at fifteen. Fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again...even though every time you'e tried before, you've lost. It's fearless to have faith that someday things will change. Fearless is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can't breathe without them. I think it's fearless to fall for your best friend, even though he's in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they'll never stop doing, I think it's fearless to stop believing them. It's fearless to say 'you're NOT sorry', and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is fearless. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is fearless. Letting go is fearless. Then, moving on and being alright...That's fearless too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily every after. That's why I write these songs. Because I think love is fearless
 

Save Me
