The lyrical genius that is reputation

  • “Younger than my exes but he act like such a man so”
  • “He can be my jailer, Burton to this Taylor, every lover known in comparison is a failure”
  • “I bury hatchets but I keep maps of where I put them”
  • “Your hand prints on my soul, it’s like your eyes are like liquor, it’s like your body is gold”
  • “I never trust a narcissist, but they love me, so I play them like a violin and I make it look oh so easy”
  • “If a man talks shit then I own him nothing”
  • “They’re burning all the witches even if you aren’t one, they got their pitchforks and proof, their receipts and reasons”
  • “Lord save me, my drug is my baby I’ll be using for the rest of my life”
  • “I once was poison ivy but now I’m your daisy”
  • “My reputation’s never been worse, so you must like me for me”
  • “You’re a mansion with a view”
  • “I’ll be the actress starring in your bad dreams”
  • “Gold cage, hostage to my feelings”
  • “I’m yours to keep and I’m yours to lose”
  • “Ocean blue eyes looking in mine, I feel like I might sink and drown and die”
  • “You should think about the consequence of your magnetic field being a little too strong”
  • “It was the best of times, the worst of crimes, I struck a match and blew your mind”
  • “The ties were black, the lies were white, in shades of gray and candlelight”
  • “There were sirens in the beat of your heart”
  • “Salute to me, I’m you’re American queen, and you move to me like I’m a Motown beat”
  • “The taste of your lips is my idea of luxury”
  • “Is this the end of all the endings?”
  • “My love had been frozen, deep blue, but you painted me golden”
  • “I loved you in spite of deeps fears that the world would divide us, baby can we dance through an avalanche?”
  • “I’m a mess but I’m the mess that you wanted”
  • “Swaying as the room burned down, I’d hold you as the water rushes in if I could dance with you again”
  • “All of this silence and patience, pining and anticipation, my hands are shaking from holding back from you”
  • “If I get burned at least we were electrified”
  • “I woke up just in time, now I wake up by your side, my one and only, my lifeline”
  • “Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year”
  • “Therein lies the issue, friends don’t try to trick you, get you on the phone and mind twist you, so I took an axe to a mended fence”
  • “All the liars are calling me one, nobody’s heard from me for months, I’m doing better than I ever was”
  • “All the drama queens taking swings, all the jokers dressing up as kings, they fade to nothing when I look at him”
  • “Starry eyes sparking up my darkest night”
  • “I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck, not because he owns me, but cause he really knows me”
  • “I want your midnights, but I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s day”
  • “I’ll be there if you’re the toast of the town babe, or if you strike out and you’re crawling home”
  • “Please don’t ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere”
  • “Candle wax and polaroids on the hardwood floor, you and me forevermore”
  • “Hold on to the memories they will hold on to you”
