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.

1. "If you wanted me, you really should have showed"

"the 1"

2. "Roaring 20s tossing pennies in the pool, and if my wishes came true, it would have been you"

"the 1"

3. "In my defense I have none for never leaving well enough alone"

"the 1"

4. "When I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone's bed, you put me on and said I was your favorite"

"cardigan"

5. "You drew stars around my scars but now I'm bleeding"

"cardigan"

6. "There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen, I had a marvelous time ruining everything"

"the last great american dynasty"

7. "You're not my homeland anymore, so what am I defending now?"

"exile" (feat. Bon Iver)

8. "Balancing on breaking branches, those eyes add insult to injury"

"exile" (feat. Bon Iver)

9. "Even on my worst day, did I deserve babe, all the hell you gave me?"

"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"

"august"

16. "I didn't know if you'd care if I came back, I have a lot of regrets about that"

"this is me trying"

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

"this is me trying"

18. "Take the words for what they are: a dwindling mercurial high, a drug that only worked the first few hundred times"

"illicit affairs"

19. "They show their truth one single time, but they lie and they lie and they lie a million little times"

"illicit affairs"

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

"illicit affairs"

21. "Isn't it just so pretty to think all along there was some invisible string tying you to me?"

"invisible string"

22. "Time, mystical time cutting me open then healing me fine"

"invisible string"

23. "There's nothing like a mad woman, what a shame she went mad, no one likes a mad women... you made her like that"

"mad woman"

24. "You poke that bear 'til the claws come out and you find something to wrap your noose around"

"mad woman"

25. "Only twenty minutes to sleep, but you dream of some epiphany"

"epiphany"

26. "With you I serve, with you I fall down, watch you breathe in, watch you breathing out"

"epiphany"

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"

29. "Give you the silence that only comes when two people understand each other, family that I chose now that I see your brother as my brother"

"peace"

30. "Stood on the cliffside screaming 'give me a reason', your faithless love's the only hoax I believe in"

"hoax"

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
