okay what fucks me up about call it what you want is the parallels to other taylor songs because it’s so beautifully done and metaphors in themselves. here are the ones i picked up straight away:
loves me like i’m brand new/it’s never too late to be brand new - innocent parallel // 1) the fact that taylor (purposefully or accidentally) references speak now makes me fucking die. 2) the fact that this is similar to innocent speaks volumes because it shows the maturity taylor has developed over the past couple of years. it also shows the fact that she can change if she needs to but doesn’t because this guy loves her so much. and now i’m crying.
my baby’s fit like a daydream/james dean daydream - style parallel // okay so this is so cute because i personally think that it shows that taylor never thought that this type of guy was real or true or attainable but she actually is in a relationship with someone like this and it’s beautiful.
all my flowers grew back as thorns/flowers we’d grown together died of thirst - clean parallel // let me cry for about 1000 years. okay so this is so beautifully sad because it’s referencing all of the hard work taylor had put into building a good relationship and life made her put up defences, but it’s also a good thing because she grew back, and stronger than ever.
windows boarded up after the storm/sky turned black like a perfect storm - clean parallel // another clean parallel that kills me inside. this one shows that even though taylor purged the horrible shit from her life, she was left empty and alone and broken and that fucking hurts, but this guy comes along and helps her :’))).
you don’t need to save me/romeo save me - love story parallel // this parallel oh fuck. it’s showing taylor’s growth and ability to recognise that she doesn’t need someone to be happy but it’s always nice and it makes her feel loved to have someone who loves her that much aww.
my castle crumbled overnight/i could build a castle out of all the bricks they through at me - new romantics parallel // OkaY SO this line shows that even though taylor was laughing off these harsh words and shit people said, they still affected her in such a deep way that it hurt her. it also could mean that those bricks were so unstable because they weren’t ‘true’ and it fell down because of that. IT ALSO COULD MEAN that this guy was able to get through this castle/façade that she built because she didn’t want to get hurt, and i’m still crying.
just say yes/yes - love story parallel // oh god. this shows that taylor has found that guy who makes her feel like she’s living in a fairytale but it’s real and right and true.
these are all i could find right now but FUCK ME UP TAYLOR SWIFT. @taylorswift
