Lavender Haze (Clean)
[Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift]

Lavender Haze (Clean)
[Jack Antonoff, Jahaan Sweet, Mark Spears, Sam Dew, Taylor Swift, Zoë Kravitz]

Meet me at midnight

Staring at the ceiling with you
Oh, you don’t ever say too much
And you don’t really read into
My melancholia

I been under scrutiny (Yeah, oh, yeah)
You handled it beautifully (Yeah, oh, yeah)
All of this is new to me (Yeah, oh, yeah)

I feel the lavender haze creeping up on me
Surreal
I’m damned if I do give a damn what people say
No deal
The 1950s s*** they want from me
I just wanna stay in that lavender haze

All they keep asking me (All they keep asking me)
Is if I’m gonna be your bride
The only kinda girl they see (Only kinda girl they see)
Is a one-night or a wife

I find it dizzying (Yeah, oh, yeah)
They’re bringing up my history (Yeah, oh, yeah)
But you weren’t even listening (Yeah, oh, yeah)

I feel the lavender haze creepin’ up on me
Surreal
I’m damned if I do give a damn what people say
No deal
The 1950s s*** they want from me
I just wanna stay in that lavender haze
That lavender haze

Talk your talk and go viral
I just need this love spiral
Get it off your chest
Get it off my desk (Get it off my desk)
Talk your talk and go viral
I just need this love spiral
Get it off your chest
Get it off my desk

I feel (I feel), the lavender haze creeping up on me
Surreal
I’m damned if I do give a damn what people say
No deal (No deal)
The 1950s s*** they want from me
I just wanna stay in that lavender haze

Get it off your chest
Get it off my desk
The lavender haze
I just wanna stay
I just wanna stay in that lavender haze

Maroon (Clean)

Maroon (Clean)
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

When the morning came
We were cleaning incense off your vinyl shelf
‘Cause we lost track of time again
Laughing with my feet in your lap
Like you were my closest friend
“How’d we end up on the floor, anyway?” You say
“Your roommates cheapest screw-top rosé, that’s how”
I see you every day now

And I chose you
The one I was dancing with
In New York, no shoes
Looked up at the sky and it was
The burgundy on my t-shirt
When you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks
So scarlet, it was
The mark they saw on my collarbone
The rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home
So scarlet, it was maroon

When the silence came
We were shaking, blind and hazy
How the hell did we lose sight of us again?
Sobbing with your head in your hands
Ain’t that the way it always ends?
You were standing hollow-eyed in the hallway
Carnations you had thought were roses, that’s us
I feel you, no matter what
The rubies that I gave up

And I lost you
The one I was dancing with
In New York, no shoes
Looked up at the sky and it was (Maroon)
The burgundy on my t-shirt
When you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks
So scarlet, it was (Maroon)
The mark they saw on my collarbone
The rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home
So scarlet, it was maroon

And I wake with your memory over me
That’s a real lasting legacy, legacy (It was maroon)
And I wake with your memory over me
That’s a real lasting legacy to leave

The burgundy on my t-shirt
When you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks
So scarlet, it was maroon
The mark they saw on my collarbone
The rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home
So scarlet, it was maroon

It was maroon
It was maroon

Anti-Hero

Anti-Hero
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

I have this thing where I get older, but just never wiser
Midnights become my afternoons
When my depression works the graveyard shift, all of the people
I’ve ghosted stand there in the room

I should not be left to my own devices
They come with prices and vices
I end up in crisis
(Tale as old as time)
I wake up screaming from dreaming
One day, I’ll watch as you’re leaving
‘Cause you got tired of my scheming
(For the last time)

It’s me, hi
I’m the problem, it’s me
At teatime, everybody agrees
I’ll stare directly at the sun, but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero

Sometimes, I feel like everybody is a sexy baby
And I’m a monster on the hill
Too big to hang out, slowly lurching toward your favorite city
Pierced through the heart, but never killed

Did you hear my covert narcissism I disguise as altruism
Like some kind of congressman?
(A tale as old as time)
I wake up screaming from dreaming
One day, I’ll watch as you’re leaving
And life will lose all its meaning
(For the last time)

It’s me, hi
I’m the problem, it’s me (I’m the problem, it’s me)
At teatime, everybody agrees
I’ll stare directly at the sun, but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero

I have this dream my daughter-in-law kills me for the money
She thinks I left them in the will
The family gathers ’round and reads it
And then someone screams out
“She’s laughing up at us from hell”

It’s me, hi
I’m the problem, it’s me
It’s me, hi
I’m the problem, it’s me
It’s me, hi
Everybody agrees, everybody agrees

It’s me, hi (Hi)
I’m the problem, it’s me (I’m the problem, it’s me)
At teatime (Teatime), everybody agrees (Everybody agrees)
I’ll stare directly at the sun, but never in the mirror
It must be exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero

Snow On The Beach (feat. Lana Del Rey) [Clean]

Snow On The Beach (feat. Lana Del Rey) [Clean]
(Jack Antonoff, Lana Del Rey, Taylor Swift)

One night, a few moons ago
I saw flecks of what could’ve been lights
But it might just have been you
Passing by unbeknownst to me
Life is emotionally abusive
And time can’t stop me quite like you did
And my flight was awful, thanks for asking
I’m unglued, thanks to you

And it’s like snow at the beach
Weird, but it was beautiful
Flying in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow, ah

This scene feels like what I once saw on a screen
I searched “aurora borealis green”
I’ve never seen someone lit from within
Blurring out my periphery
My smile is like I won a contest
And to hide that would be so dishonest
And it’s fine to fake it ’til you make it
‘Til you do, ’til it’s true

Now it’s like snow at the beach
Weird, but it was beautiful
Flying in a dream
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me
Tonight feels impossible
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow on the beach
Like snow, ah

I can’t speak, afraid to jinx it
I don’t even dare to wish it
But your eyes are flying saucers from another planet
Now I’m all for you like Janet
Can this be a real thing? Can it?

Are we falling like snow at the beach? (Snow at the beach)
Weird, but it was beautiful
Flying in a dream (Flying in a dream)
Stars by the pocketful
You wanting me (You wanting me)
Tonight feels impossible
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around
Like snow on the beach (Snow on the beach)
Like snow on the beach (Flying in a dream)
Like snow on the beach (You wanting me)
Like snow, ah
But it’s coming down
No sound, it’s all around
Like snow on the beach
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
Like snow on the beach
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)
(It’s coming down, it’s coming down)

You’re On Your Own, Kid

You’re On Your Own, Kid
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

Summer went away, still, the yearning stays
I play it cool with the best of them
I wait patiently, he’s gonna notice me
It’s okay, we’re the best of friends
Anyway
I hear it in your voice
You’re smoking with your boys
I touch my phone as if it’s your face
I didn’t choose this town, I dream of getting out
There’s just one who could make me stay
All my days

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I waited ages to see you there
I search the party of better bodies
Just to learn that you never cared
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been

I see the great escape, so long, Daisy Mae
I picked the petals, he loves me not
Something different bloomed, writing in my room
I play my songs in the parking lot
I’ll run away

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I called a taxi to take me there
I search the party of better bodies
Just to learn that my dreams aren’t rare
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been

From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes
I gave my blood, sweat, and tears for this
I hosted parties and starved my body
Like I’d be saved by a perfect kiss
The jokes weren’t funny, I took the money
My friends from home don’t know what to say
I looked around in a blood-soaked gown

And I saw something they can’t take away
‘Cause there were pages turned with the bridges burned
Everything you lose is a step you take
So, make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it
You’ve got no reason to be afraid

You’re on your own, kid
Yeah, you can face this
You’re on your own, kid
You always have been

Midnight Rain

Midnight Rain
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

Rain
He wanted it comfortable, I wanted that pain
He wanted a bride, I was making my own name
Chasing that fame, he stayed the same
All of me changed like midnight

My town was a wasteland
Full of cages, full of fences
Pageant queens and big pretenders
But for some, it was paradise
My boy was a montage
A slow-motion, love potion
Jumping off things in the ocean
I broke his heart ’cause he was nice
He was sunshine, I was midnight rain

He wanted it comfortable, I wanted that pain
He wanted a bride, I was making my own name
Chasing that fame, he stayed the same
All of me changed like midnight

It came like a postcard
Picture perfect shiny family
Holiday peppermint candy
But for him, it’s every day
So I peered through a window
A deep portal, time travel
All the love we unravel
And the life I gave away
‘Cause he was sunshine, I was midnight rain

He wanted it comfortable, I wanted that pain
He wanted a bride, I was making my own name
Chasing that fame, he stayed the same
All of me changed like midnight rain
He wanted it comfortable, I wanted that pain
He wanted a bride, I was making my own name
Chasing that fame, he stayed the same
All of me changed like midnight

I guess sometimes we all get
Just what we wanted, just what we wanted
And he never thinks of me
Except for when I’m on TV
I guess sometimes we all get
Some kind of haunted, some kind of haunted
And I never think of him
Except on midnights like this
(Midnights like this, midnights like this)

Question…? (Clean)

Question…? (Clean)
[Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift]

I remember

Good girl, sad boy
Big city, wrong choices
We had one thing goin’ on
I swear that it was somethin’
‘Cause I don’t remember who I was
Before you painted all my nights
A color I’ve searched for since
But one thing after another
Lost in situations, circumstances
Miscommunications and I
Have to say, by the way
I just may like some explanations

Can I ask you a question?
Did you ever have someone kiss you in a crowded room
And every single one of your friends was makin’ fun of you
But fifteen seconds later, thеy were clappin’ too?
Then what did you do?
Did you lеave her house in the middle of the night? Oh
Did you wish you’d put up more of a fight, oh
When she said it was too much?
Do you wish you could still touch her?
It’s just a question

Half-moon eyes, bad surprise
Did you realize out of time?
She was on your mind with some meathead guy
That you saw that night
But you were on somethin’
It was one drink after another
Caught in politics and gender roles
And you’re not sure and I don’t know
Got swept away in the grey
I just may like to have a conversation

Can I ask you a question?
Did you ever have someone kiss you in a crowded room
And every single one of your friends was makin’ fun of you
But fifteen seconds later, they were clappin’ too?
Then what did you do?
Did you leave her house in the middle of the night? Oh
Did you wish you’d put up more of a fight, oh
When she said it was too much?
Do you wish you could still touch her?
It’s just a question

Does it feel like everything’s just like
Second best after that meteor strike?
And what’s that that I heard? That you’re still with her?
That’s nice, I’m sure that’s what’s suitable
And right, but tonight

Can I ask you a question? (Can I ask you a question?)
Did you ever have someone kiss you in a crowded room (In a crowded room)
And every single one of your friends was makin’ fun of you (Makin’ fun of you)
But fifteen seconds later, they were clappin’ too?
Then what did you do? (Do)
Did you leave her house in the middle of the night? Oh
Did you wish you’d put up more of a fight, oh (More of a fight)
When she said it was too much?
Do you wish you could still touch her?
It’s just a question

Vigilante Shit (Clean)

Vigilante Shit (Clean)
[Taylor Swift]

Draw the cat eye, sharp enough to kill a man
You did some bad things, but I’m the worst of them
Sometimes I wonder which one’ll be your last lie
They say looks can kill and I might try
I don’t dress for women
I don’t dress for men

Lately I’ve been dressin’ for revenge
I don’t start it, but I can tell you how it ends
Don’t get sad, get even
So on the weekends
I don’t dress for friends
Lately I’ve been dressin’ for revenge

She needed cold hard proof, so I gave her some
She had the envelope, where you think she got it from?
Now she gets the house, gets the kids, gets the pride
Picture me thick as thieves with your ex-wife
And she looks so pretty
Drivin’ in your Benz
Lately she’s been dressin’ for revenge

She don’t start it, but she can tell you how it ends
Don’t get sad, get even
So on the weekends
She don’t dress for friends
Lately she’s been dressing for revenge

Ladies always rise above
Ladies know what people want
Someone sweet and kind and fun
The lady simply had enough

Well, he was doin’ lines and crossin’ all of mine
Someone told his white collar crimes to the FBI
And I don’t dress for villains
Or for innocents
I’m on my vigilante shh again

I don’t start it, but I can tell you how it ends
Don’t get sad, get even
So on the weekends
I don’t dress for friends
Lately I’ve been dressin’ for revenge

Bejeweled

Bejeweled
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

Baby love, I think I’ve been a little too kind
Didn’t notice you walkin’ all over my peace of mind
In the shoes I gave you as a present
Puttin’ someone first only works when you’re in their top five
And by the way, I’m goin’ out tonight

Best believe I’m still bejeweled
When I walk in the room
I can still make the whole place shimmer
And when I meet the band
They ask, “Do you have a man?”
I could still say, “I don’t remember”
Familiarity breeds contempt
So put mе in the basement
Whеn I want the penthouse of your heart
Diamonds in my eyes
I polish up real, I polish up real nice
NICE!

Baby boy, I think I’ve been too good of a girl (Too good of a girl)
Did all the extra credit, then got graded on a curve
I think it’s time to teach some lessons
I made you my world (Huh), have you heard? (Huh)
I can reclaim the land
And I miss you (Miss you)
But I miss sparklin’ (Nice)

Best believe I’m still bejeweled
When I walk in the room
I can still make the whole place shimmer
And when I meet the band
They ask, “Do you have a man?”
I could still say, “I don’t remember”
Familiarity breeds contempt
So put me in the basement
When I want the penthouse of your heart
Diamonds in my eyes
I polish up real, I polish up real nice
NICE!

Sapphire tears on my face
Sadness became my whole sky
But some guy said my aura’s moonstone
Just ’cause he was high
And we danced all night
And you can try to change my mind
But you might have to wait in line
What’s a girl gonna do?
A diamond’s gotta shine

Best believe I’m still bejeweled
When I walk in the room
I can still make the whole place shimmer (Shimmer)
And when I meet the band
They ask, “Do you have a man?”
I could still say, “I don’t remember”
Familiarity breeds contempt
So put me in the basement
When I want the penthouse of your heart
Diamonds in my eyes
I polish up real (Nice), I polish up real nice

And we danced all night
And you can try to change my mind
But you might have to wait in line
What’s a girl gonna do? What’s a girl gonna do?
I polish up nice
Best believe I’m still bejeweled
When I walk in the room
I can still make the whole place shimmer

Labyrinth

Labyrinth
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

It only hurts this much right now
Was what I was thinkin’ the whole time
Breathe in, breathe through, breathe deep, breathe out
I’ll be gettin’ over you my whole life
You know how scared I am of elevators
Never trust it if it rises fast
It can’t last

Uh-oh, I’m fallin’ in love
Oh no, I’m fallin’ in love again
Oh, I’m fallin’ in love
I thought the plane was goin’ down
How’d you turn it right around?

It only feels this raw right now
Lost in the labyrinth of my mind
Break up, break free, break through, break down
You would break your back to make me break a smile
You know how much I hate
That everybody just expects me to bounce back
Just like that

Uh-oh, I’m fallin’ in love
Oh no, I’m fallin’ in love again
Oh, I’m fallin’ in love
I thought the plane was goin’ down
How’d you turn it right around?

Uh-oh, I’m fallin’ in love
Oh no, I’m fallin’ in love again
Oh, I’m fallin’ in love
I thought the plane was goin’ down
How’d you turn it right around?

Uh-oh, I’m fallin’ in love
Oh no, I’m fallin’ in love again
Oh, I’m fallin’ in love
I thought the plane was goin’ down
How’d you turn it right around?

Uh-oh, I’m fallin’ in love
Oh no, I’m fallin’ in love again
Oh, I’m fallin’ in love
I thought the plane was goin’ down
How’d you turn it right around?

Karma (Clean)

Karma (Clean)
[Jack Antonoff, Jahaan Sweet, Keanu Torres, Mark Spears, Taylor Swift]

You flip the script for the hell of it
Addicted to betrayal, but you’re relevant
You’re terrified to look down
‘Cause if you dare, you’ll see the glare
Of everyone you burned just to get there
It’s coming back around
And I keep my side of the street clean
You wouldn’t know what I mean

Cause karma is my boyfriend
Karma is a god
Karma is the breeze in my hair on the weekend
Karma’s a relaxing thought
Aren’t you envious that for you it’s not?
Sweet like honey
Karma is a cat
Purring in my lap cause it loves me
Flexing like a Vegas acrobat
Me and karma vibe like that

Spiderboy, king of thieves
Weave your little webs of opacity
My pennies made your crown
Trick me once, trick me twice
Don’t you know that cash ain’t the only price?
It’s coming back around
And I keep my side of the street clean
You wouldn’t know what I mean

Cause karma is my boyfriend
Karma is a god
Karma is the breeze in my hair on the weekend
Karma’s a relaxing thought
Aren’t you envious that for you it’s not?
Sweet like honey
Karma is a cat
Purring in my lap cause it loves me
Flexing like a Vegas acrobat
Me and karma vibe like that

Ask me what I learned from all those years
Ask me what I earned from all those tears
Ask me why so many fade, but I’m still here
(I’m still here, I’m still here)

Cause karma is the thunder
Rattling your ground
Karma’s on your scent like a bounty hunter
Karma’s gonna track you down
Step by step, from town to town
Sweet like justice
Karma is a queen
Karma takes all my friends to the summit
Karma is the guy on the screen
Coming straight home to me

Cause karma is my boyfriend (Karma is my boyfriend)
Karma is a god
Karma is the breeze in my hair on the weekend (Weekend)
Karma’s a relaxing thought
Aren’t you envious that for you it’s not?
Sweet like honey
Karma is a cat
Purring in my lap cause it loves me
Flexing like a Vegas acrobat
Me and karma vibe like that

Karma is my boyfriend
Karma is a god (Ah)
Uh-huh, mm
Karma’s a relaxing thought

Sweet Nothing

Sweet Nothing
(Taylor Swift, William Bowery)

I spy with my little tired eye
Tiny as a firefly, a pebble
That we picked up last July
Down deep inside your pocket
We almost forgot it
Does it ever miss Wicklow sometimes?
Ooh, ooh

They said the end is coming
Everyone’s up to something
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving
You’re in the kitchen hummin’
All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing

On the way home
I wrote a poem
You say, “What a mind”
This happens all the time
Ooh, ooh

Causе they said the end is coming
Evеryone’s up to something
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving
You’re in the kitchen hummin’
All that you ever wanted from me was nothing

Industry disruptors and soul deconstructors
And smooth-talking hucksters out glad-handing each other
And the voices that implore, “You should be doing more”
To you, I can admit that I’m just too soft for all of it
Ooh

They said the end is coming
Everyone’s up to something
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving
You’re in the kitchen hummin’
All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing

They said the end is coming (They said the end is coming)
Everyone’s up to something (Everyone’s up to something)
I found myself a-running home to your sweet nothings
Outside they’re push and shoving (Outside they’re push and shoving)
You’re in the kitchen hummin’ (You’re in the kitchen hummin’)
All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing

Mastermind

Mastermind
(Jack Antonoff, Taylor Swift)

Once upon a time, the planets and the fates
And all the stars aligned
You and I ended up in the same room
At the same time
And the touch of a hand lit the fuse
Of a chain reaction of countermoves
To assess the equation of you
Checkmate, I couldn’t lose

What if I told you none of it was accidental?
And the first night that you saw me
Nothing was gonna stop me
I laid the groundwork, and then
Just like clockwork
The dominoes cascaded in a line
What if I told you I’m a mastermind?
And now you’re mine
It was all by dеsign
‘Cause I’m a mastermind

You see, all the wisеst women
Had to do it this way
‘Cause we were born to be the pawn
In every lover’s game
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
Strategy sets the scene for the tale
I’m the wind in our free-flowing sails
And the liquor in our cocktails

What if I told you none of it was accidental?
And the first night that you saw me
I knew I wanted your body
I laid the groundwork, and then
Just like clockwork
The dominoes cascaded in a line
What if I told you I’m a mastermind?
And now you’re mine
It was all my design
‘Cause I’m a mastermind

No one wanted to play with me as a little kid
So I’ve been scheming like a criminal ever since
To make them love me and make it seem effortless
This is the first time I’ve felt the need to confess
And I swear
I’m only cryptic and Machiavellian
Cause I care

So I told you none of it was accidental
And the first night that you saw me
Nothing was gonna stop me
I laid the groundwork, and then
Saw a wide smirk on your face
You knew the entire time
You knew that I’m a mastermind
And now you’re mine
Yeah, all you did was smile
‘Cause I’m a mastermind
