Wonderland

Wonderland
Written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin & Shellback

Flashing lights and we
Took a wrong turn and we
Fell down a rabbit hole
You held on tight to me
Cause nothing’s as it seems
Spinning out of control

Didn’t they tell us don’t rush into things
Didn’t you flash your green eyes on me
Haven’t you heard what becomes of curious minds
Ooh, didn’t it all seem new and exciting
I felt your arms twisting around me
I should’ve slept with one eye opened at night

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
We pretended it could last forever
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
Life was never worse but never better
In wonderland…In wonderland
In wonderland…In wonderland

So we went on our way
Too in love to think straight
All alone, or so it seemed
There were strangers watching
And whispers turned to talking
And talking turned to screams, oh!

Didn’t they tell us don’t rush into things
Didn’t you flash your green eyes on me
Didn’t you calm my fears with a Cheshire Cat smile
Ooh, didn’t it all seem new and exciting
I felt your arms twisting around me
So fun a game till somebody loses their mind

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
We pretended it could last forever
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
Life was never worse but never better
In wonderland…In wonderland
In wonderland…In wonderland

I reach for you but you were gone
I knew I had to go back home
You searched the world for something else
To make you feel like what we had
And in the end in the wonderland
We both went mad

Oh….!

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
We pretended it could last forever (last forever)
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and (got lost in it)
Life was never worse but never better (never better)

We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
We pretended it could last forever (In wonderland)
We found wonderland
You and I got lost in it and
Life was never worse but never better
In wonderland

You Are In Love

You Are in Love
Written By Taylor Swift & Jack Antonoff

One look
Dark room
Men just for you
Time moved too fast
You played it back
Buttons on a coat
Lighthearted joke
No proof, not much
But you saw enough

Small talk, he drives
Coffee at midnight
The light reflects
The chain on your neck
He says look up
And your shoulders brush
No proof, one touch
But you felt enough

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you…ooh!
You can feel it on the way home, way home, you…ooh!
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love
True love
You are in love

Morning, his place
Burn toast, Sunday
You keep his shirt
He keeps his word
And for once you let go
Of your fears and your ghosts
One step, not much
But it said enough

You kissed on sidewalks
You fight then you talk
One night he wakes
Strange look, his face
Pauses, then says
You’re my best friend
And you knew what it was
He is in love

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you…ooh!
You can feel it on the way home, way home, you…ooh!
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love
True love
You are in love

So it goes
You two are dancing in a snow globe, ’round and ’round
And he keeps the picture of you in his office downtown
And you understand now why they lost their minds and fought the wars
And why I’ve spent my whole life try to put it in words

Cause you can hear in the silence
You can feel it on the way home
You can see it with the lights out
You are in love
True love
You’re in love

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you…ooh!
You can feel it on the way home, way home, you…ooh!
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love
True love
You are in love

You can hear it in the silence, silence, you…ooh!
You can feel it on the way home, way home, you…ooh!
You can see it with the lights out, lights out
You are in love
True love
You are in love

New Romantics

New Romantics
Written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin & Shellback

We’re all bored
We’re all so tired of everything
We wait for trains that just aren’t coming
We show off our different scarlet letters – trust me mine is better
We’re so young
But we’re on the road to ruin
We play dumb but we know exactly what we’re doing
We cry tears of mascara in the bathroom
Honey, life is just a classroom

Cause baby I could build a castle
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day it’s like battle
But every night with us is like a dream
Baby, we’re the new romantics
Come on, come along with me
Heartbreak is the national anthem
We sing it proudly
We are too busy dancing
To get knocked off our feet
Baby, we’re the new romantics
The best people in life are free

We’re all here
The light and noise are blinding
We hang back, it’s all in the timing
It’s poker, he can’t see in my face
But I’m about to play my ace
We need love
But all we want is danger
We team up, then switch sides like a record changer
The rumors are terrible and cruel
But, honey, most of them are true

Cause baby I could build a castle
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day it’s like battle
But every night with us is like a dream
Baby, we’re the new romantics
Come on, come along with me
Heartbreak is the national anthem
We sing it proudly
We are too busy dancing
To get knocked off our feet
Baby, we’re the new romantics
The best people in life are free

Oh!
So come on, come along with me
The best people in life are free

Please take my hand and
Please take me dancing and
Please leave me stranded
It’s so romantic

Oh!
Cause baby I could build a castle
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day it’s like battle
But every night with us is like a dream (Dream)

Cause baby I could build a castle (Castle)
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day it’s like battle (Oh!)
But every night with us is like a dream
Baby we’re the new romantics
Come on, come along with me
Heart break is the national anthem
We sing it proudly
We are too busy dancing
To get knocked off our feet
Baby we’re the new romantics
The best people in life are free

DELUXE EDITION BONUS VOICE MEMOS

I Know Places (Piano/Vocal)

I Know Places (Piano/Vocal)

[Spoken]
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?”

Um, and you know, my answer is always that it happens differently every time And that’s why I’m still so in love with songwriting. So, what I’ve done here is shown you three different examples of um, the beginning stages of these songs and how they each started, uh, different ways.

So, um, I’ll explain them to you and maybe that will help you understand kinda how I put some songs together.

I sent this voice memo to Ryan Tedder because I always wanted to work with him. And finally we scheduled some studio time, so, I always want to 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 want to work on something else. Think of something else.”

So, um, I just sat down with a 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, um, we ended up recording the song the next day and it ended up being on the record called, uh, “I Know Places”. So this was the voice memo that I sent to him the night before we ended up finishing the song.

[Voice memo]
Okay… so this is kind of this rough idea thing.

[Begins playing the piano]
Uh-uh-uh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-I
Uh-uh-uh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-I
Uh-uh-uh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-I-I-I

And we’re now in the wing at the back door
They’re around and the vultures come around
And you know that they will do what they want us
Say what they want about, say what they want about us
And you come on this thing known earson
I know think about nothing
Never knowing not a thing or two about it
Thing or two about it, thing 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 tales tryin’ to track us down
Cause I, I know places we can hide, I know places, I know places

I-I-I
I-I-I
I-I-I-I!
I-I-I I know places

Or whatever, I don’t know but that’s basically just like a dark, really dark, like, um, lyric, like, bridge thing and it’s about like, uh, everybody’s like trying to, like, get into and like, ruin a love or whatever, and it’s like you just, whatever, you know, um, and then the chorus would just go to that major and just like, be like that “AH! Chorus”. Um, so, I hope you like it. It wouldn’t be a piano thing it be like [vocalizes beat]. Like, very like, beat, now I’m just making weird sounds. Hope you like it.

I Wish You Would (Track/Vocal)

I Wish You Would (Track/Vocal)

[Spoken]
This is another way I’ve written songs recently. Um… This is a song that I did with Jack Antonoff. And Jack is one of my friends, and so we were hanging out, and he pulled out his phone and goes, “Um, I made this amazing track the other day, it’s so cool. I love these guitar sounds.”

And, um, 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 it, like send it to me.” And um, so he sent it to me and I was on tour, and this was uh, me playing the track on my laptop recording me singing the vocal into my phone and um, it ended up being a song called “I Wish You Would”, um, because Jack wrote back and he was like “I love that.”

Um, so this is another way of writing. It’s writing to track.

[Voice memo]
Okay, so this is an idea called “I Wish You Would” it’s kind of about
this guy who’s like, he’s driving up on the street in the middle of the
night and he passes his ex-girlfriend’s house and it’s like, he thinks
she hates him but she’s still in love with him. Very dramatic. This
track is sick. Hope you like this.

It’s two A. M. in your car
Windows down, I pass my street
The memories start

You say it’s in the past
And drive straight ahead
You think I’m gonna hate you now
‘Cause you still don’t know what I never said

I wish you would come back
Wish I’d never hung up the phone like I did
And I wish you knew that
I’d never forget you as long as I’d live

Wish you were right here, right now
It’s all good
I wish you would

Do you like it?

Blank Space (Guitar/Vocal)

Blank Space (Guitar/Vocal)

[Spoken]
So this next clip is from a session that I had with Max Martin and
Johan Shellback and what we like to do, is we like to run, um, a
recording on our phones of ever thing we’re doing when we’re
putting a song together, just in case one of us blurts out a cool
melody and then we forget about it, we want to go back and then,
and replay the tapes so that we can remind ourselves what exactly
we were saying.

Um, so I brought in this idea called “Blank Space” and this was me
playing it for Max and Johan for the first time and they’re shouting
out the production ideas like, you know, the “Oh!” at the beginning
of the chorus.

Um, that ended up in the song, so this is the very beginning stages
of a song on the album called “Blank Space”

[Voice memo]
Like, [starts playing guitar]
Nice to meet you
Where you’ve been?
I could show you incredible things
Diamonds, seasides, [incoherent]
[Incoherent], oh my God
[Incoherent], I do too
[Incoherent], oh
We can [incoherent]
All you think of all this [incoherent], oh my God
[Incoherent] me, [incoherent] what you heard about me
Don’t believe what you heard about me
Heard about me, cause

It’s gonna be forever
Oh yeah, we’re gonna go

Yeah! [laughing] Ah!
Gonna go down in flames
Tell me when it’s over

This is like, this like an early 2000s, Nelly track, no [laughs]
[Begins playing guitar again]
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
But I got a blank space baby
I’ll write your name

Go on and do the…
Blank space baby, alright
[Laughing]
That’s awesome!
Finally! I love it.
Yeah, really.
I love it.
[Laughing]
Oh my God, [incoherent]‘s going to kill you
[Laughing] It’s a good thing…[memo cuts off]
