I wrote this song about Clexa post season 2 because I am trash and it’s 1am right now and January 2016 is too far. I only recorded the first verse and chorus. I’ll hopefully finish it soon. But I added in some guitar hits, shaker and harmonies.
Lyrics are below :)
She held on so tight to a burning light, The bluest skies of a summertime. The sacrifice of a kryptonite, Made her stronger to the world.
Eyes washed clean, but the tears still remained, On her lovely cheeks once blushed to be weak. The golden leaves of an Autumn breeze, Like the mane of a lionheart.
PRE-CHORUS But you fell from the sky like the stars I wished upon. And I fell from your eyes like the sky that held you too long.
CHORUS Hold my heart. And I’ll hold your heart. We’ll take care to repair the damage that’s done. No we don’t have to bare all the fights that we won. And I just want to know you inch by inch. Every piece in the peace. Who are you in the peace?
I HOPE YOU LIKE IT. SEASON 3 IS NOT COMING FAST ENOUGH UGH.
Sometimes I say/think some strange things about Pete, but at the end of the day he’ll always be my hero. Seeing him with two adorable kids, and a beautiful girlfriend, and happiness after all the shit he’s gone through is sometimes the reason I keep going. People say you don’t get the happily ever after, maybe those people have just never seen someone go on long enough to see it. Pete has inspired me to write, and I think I do one day want to make songs, with lyrics I’ve done. He’s born under the same sign as me, and that has made it so I don’t really ever feel alone, no matter how off course and crazy I get. Once I found out that he wrote the lyrics to From Under the Cork Tree I absolutely fell in love with him, and that love hasn’t died in longer than a year, when I started listening to them. It’s hard to explain exactly how much he means to me, but saying he means the world doesn’t quite cut it, it’s got to be more than that.
So I’m going to tell you a story in Taylor lyrics that go along with the story of my relationship. Once upon a time I was in love but I was blinded. I couldn’t see the abuse and manipulation taking place until now. So here it is.
“I want you for worse or for better I would wait for ever and ever” - when you told me how bad you wanted me and I fell for it. I wanted someone to love but I didn’t love myself yet.
“You told me I was pretty when I looked like a mess” - when you brought me up when I was feeling down about myself. You gave me gifts from the things I loved.
“You saw me start to believe for the first time.” - when I truly believed that you loved me the way I loved you.
“And I’ll do anything you say, if you say it with you’re hands” - when you somehow got me to do whatever you wanted me to do with the way you would speak.
“Dancin’ round the kitchen in the refrigerator light”- when we really were dancing in the kitchen while baking cookies together. Sneaking kisses while no one was around.
“I can hear them whisper as we pass by, it’s a bad sign” - when I though that they were just whispering and talking and staring because we were different. When I started thinking about how things were actually going.
“Romeo take me they’re trying to tell me how to feel, this love is difficult but it’s real” - when my mother read the text and knew something was wrong but we didn’t listen and believed that we were right for each other.
“Long live that look on your face” - when we knew it would be our last day together. And we both cried for hours when we got home.
“When the butterflies turned to dust that covered my whole room”- when I finally started to realize the games you played with me making me think that I was the one with something wrong with me. Hoping that it wasn’t true that you would do something like this to me.
“When the monsters turned out to be just trees.”- this one hits me so hard. I thought that I was feeling so alone because no one wanted us together. I thought that all my friends stopped talking to me because of me. But it was you. You told them to stop talking to me because you were jealous.
“Rain came pouring down, when I was drowning that’s when I could finally breathe.” - When I finally realized how much you had me do for you that I wasn’t okay with doing. How much you twisted my words to make me seems like the bad guy when I was only trying to stand my ground. When I finally realized that it wasn’t me, it was you.
“Just because you’re clean don’t mean you don’t miss it”- Just because I found myself does not mean that I still don’t think about the fun times that we had.
“In the morning, gone was any trace of you I think I am finally clean”- when I finally woke up from the nightmare in the morning and realized that I grew, and I changed for the better and I now have a sense of who I am.
taylorswift I want to thank you for writing music and helping me have a way to connect with something and having that thread to get me out of dark times and still guide me through the good ones too. Thank you
There once was a time in 2012 when I first listened to Starlight and instantly fell in love with the whole song- the lyrics, the beat of the song, the meaning, EVERYTHING about the song. Starlight is not only my favorite Taylor song but it’s my favorite song period. The lyrics that struck me were “dream impossible dreams”. They remind me to always keep going and most importantly to never give up and keep dreaming. Taylor has made such a big impact on my life the last few years and I love her so much for it. Her music, specifically Starlight, has helped me out of my darkest moments. Thank you, Taylor for everything. And I’ll always be dreaming impossible dreams.
one of my all time favorite bands have emerged back from the dead with their newest release, “rip 2 my youth”. after burying themselves in their hip hop based mixtape #000000 & #ffffff, they show they can return to their original sound with no hesitation. this track shows maturation in jesse rutherford’s vocals as well as lyrics, while still encompassing the sound that everyone fell in love with, circa the i’m sorry… ep. this might not be the nbhd’s best effort, but it’s a gentle reminder of who they once were, and provides a stark transition back to alternative. -a
For 7 or so years, I adamantly defended and tried to prove to people that Taylor was worth listening to. That she was this amazingly talented lyricist and songwriter and the melodies she produced in the studio were like no other. And it’s just SO SO SO nice for people (who once turned their nose up in disgust when I would make them listen to a Taylor song) are now enjoyingly bobbing their heads to her music. They’re learning the words. THEYRE POSTING HER LYRICS AS FACEBOOK STATUSES OR TWEETS. It’s just so nice to see Taylor FINALLY getting the recognition she’s deserved for quite some time. And it’s heartbreaking that it took until now for all of it to happen. Because in 2007, I fell in love with the girl who sang about unrequited love and looking in on the outside. I’ve grown up with her. We’ve grown up together. We’ve experienced the same things together. I’m just so insanely proud of her. Because for years, I was made fun of for supporting her. For being the girl who was “obsessed with Taylor Swift.” But I didn’t care, because I believed in her. I believed that she could change the industry and the opinions of others.
taylorswift I love you so much! And I’m so proud of you! I’ll be here until I die. You and your music are my one constant. ❤️ thank you!
>> Once upon a time a few mistakes ago, I was in your sights, you got me alone. You found me, you found me, you found me. I guess you didn’t care, and I guess I liked that, and when I fell hard you took a step back, without me, without me, without me. And he’s long gone when he’s next to me, and I realise the blame is on me… And the saddest fear comes creeping in, that you never loved me… or her, or anyone, or anything. I knew you were trouble when you walked in, so shame on me now
My name is Maddie and I cannot begin to thank you for the last seven years. In 2008, I became good friends with a boy in my school musical; I fell in love with him, I convinced myself that he was my everything. However, as one of my favourite people once said (aka you), “everything that falls gets broken”. Predictably and rightly so, my ‘Wildest Dreams’ did not come true, he has always picked someone else over me.
I tell you this story, as it was a pivotal moment in my life, it was the moment I discovered you. I remember one of my friends singing ‘Teardrops on My Guitar’ in Year 7; the lyrics of that song resonated with me. From that moment forward every lyric of every song you have ever written has spoken truth, honesty and realism – in some magical way it’s like the comfort of a friend speaking to me when no one else can seem to get through.
Since then things have gotten better, but never has my support waivered from you. From ‘Fearless’, to ‘Speak Now’, to ‘Red’, as you and your music grew, I grew alongside with you. Your ‘Fearless’ Tour was the first concert I ever attended on February 12th 2010 in Adelaide. Two years later on March 4th 2012, I was so lucky to witness you again on the ‘Speak Now’ tour. I was devastated when I learnt that you weren’t coming to Adelaide for your ‘Red’ Tour in 2013. However, there was no way I was missing seeing you, so I saved up all my money to fly to Brisbane to attend the concert with my cousins on December 7th of that year!
I haven’t ever kept quiet about my support for you Taylor, because you deserve every bit of it. I’ve certainly driven my friends mad at times! In my final year of school I sung ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ with my friends in front of the whole school community at Choral Night, and who could forget this embarrassing adlib video when I should have been studying:
I can’t wait to see you again on Monday the 7th of December in Adelaide for the ‘1989’ Tour, we will be in the General Admission Standing East, dancing our absolute hearts out and shaking it off with our glowing “Shake It Off” inspired costumes for the night. Today we took some photos of our outfits to show you and attracted quite a crowd of tourists who wanted to take photos with us - they said they loved our cat socks!! I can’t wait to line up with my friends on Monday, and hopefully meet new friends too if they would like to come and say hello! I hope that one day I can tell you all this in person for changing my life for the better, but I’m glad it’s all down in writing!
