30 Lyrics From Taylor Swift's New Album 'Folklore' — Because We Can't Just Pick The 1

On Thursday, July 23, Taylor had a big surprise for Swifties around the world: the release of her eighth album, "folklore".

Speculation about the album's release had set the date of the drop for 2022, but Swift took it upon herself to bring into the world a little earlier than planned, in a different way than she planned. And we aren't mad.

It's been a cruel summer (get it?), but this album has definitely taken the edge off. Here are 30 of our favorite lyrics.

"the 1"

"my tears ricochet"

10. "If I'm dead to you, why are you at the wake?"

"my tears ricochet"

11. "You know I didn't want to have to haunt you, but what a ghostly scene"

"my tears ricochet"

12. "I'm still a believer, but I don't know why, I've never been a natural, all I do is try"

"mirrorball"

13. "Passed down like folksongs, our love lasts so long"

"seven"

14. "August slipped away like a bottle of wine 'cause you were never mine"

"august"

15. "To live for the hope of all, cancel plans just in case you would call"

"this is me trying"

17. "You're a flashback in a film reel"

"this is me trying"

20. "Don't call me baby, look at this godforsaken mess that you made me"

27. "Right now is the last time I can dream about what happens when you see my face again"

"betty"

28. "You know that I'd swing with you for the fences, sit with you in the trenches, give you my wild, give you a child"

"peace"

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom.

But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
