Taylor Swifts nieuwe single heeft behoorlijk intense lyrics

'Sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Cause she's dead.'

Meest gelezen

Vannacht slingerde Taylor Swift het eerste nummer van haar nieuwe album Reputation in de wereld, Look What You Made Me Do getiteld. Swift noemt geen namen, maar het is overduidelijk dat de 'you' staat voor de vier mensen die afgelopen jaar haar reputatie in het geding brachten: Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry en haar ex Calvin Harris, met een behoorlijke nadruk op Kanye.

Zo zingt ze: 'I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now',wat overduidelijk een verwijzing lijkt naar dat ene veelbesproken telefoongesprek tussen Kanye West en Taylor.

Én ze zingt over een 'tilted stage', wat natuurlijk totaal een hint is naar Kanye's karakteristieke podium van zijn afgelopen tour:

Swift is de 'primary writer' van het nummer, samen met Jack Antonoff, dus de lyrics komen echt uit haar eigen koker. De totaal 'nieuwe' Taylor Swift voert ze overal door, want haar Instagrampagina ziet er nu zo uit:

Ai, ai, ai. De strijdbijl is nog lang niet begraven, Kanye & Kim. Op play:

En nog een keer, de lyrics, via Genius. Ter analyse:

I don't like your little games

Don't like your tilted stage

The role you made me play

Of the fool, no, I don't like you

I don't like your perfect crime

How you laugh when you lie

You said the gun was mine

Isn't cool, no, I don't like you (oh!)

Pre-Chorus:

But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time

I've got a list of names and yours is in red underlined

I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!

Chorus:

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

Verse 2:

I don't like your kingdom keys

They once belonged to me

You ask me for a place to sleep

Locked me out and threw a feast (what?)

The world goes on, another day, another drama, drama

But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma

And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure

Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours

Pre-Chorus:

But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time

I've got a list of names and yours is in red underlined

I check it once, then I check it twice, ohh!

Chorus:

Ohh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me

Ohh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

Bridge:

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me

I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams

(Look what you made me do)

(Look what you made me do)

"I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now."

"Why?"

"Oh 'cause she's dead!"

Chorus:

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do

Ooh, look what you made me do

Look what you made me do

Look what you just made me do

Look what you just made me do
