To celebrate the release of Taylor Swift’s deluxe version of ‘Folklore,’ she’s added a bonus song into the mix called, ‘the lakes.’

 

 

Embracing romantic poetry, fans are led to believe Taylor’s new record is all about her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.

 

 

By the beginning of August, Taylor’s eighth studio album became the best-selling album of 2020, and features her previous single, ‘Cardigan.’

 

 

Check out the lyrics to ‘the lakes’ below.

 

[Verse 1]

Is it romantic how all of my elegies eulogize me?
I’m not cut out for all these cynical clones
These hunters with cell phones

 

[Chorus]

Take me to the lakes, where all the poets went to die
I don’t belong and, my beloved, neither do you
Those Windermere peaks look like a perfect place to cry
I’m setting off, but not without my muse

 

[Verse 2]
What should be over burrowed under my skin
In heart-stopping waves of hurt
I’ve come too far to watch some name-dropping sleaze
Tell me what are my words worth

 

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I want auroras and sad prose
I want to watch wisteria grow right over my bare feet
‘Cause I haven’t moved in years
And I want you right here
A red rose grew up out of ice frozen ground
With no one around to tweet it
While I bathe in cliff-side pools
With my calamitous love and insurmountable grief

[Chorus]

 

I’m not crying.  You’re crying.
