WHEN YOU ARE READING THIS IT WILL OFFICALLY BE ONE DAY UNTIL I SEE TAYLOR SWIFT SO I AM SHARING WITH YOU MY FAVORITE SONG FROM reputation . . . GETAWAY CAR.

No, nothing good starts in a getaway car…

It was the best of times, the worst of crimes
I struck a match and blew your mind
But I didn’t mean it
And you didn’t see it
The ties were black, the lies were white
In shades of gray and candlelight
I wanted to leave him
I needed a reason

X marks the spot, where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, I was lying to myself
I knew it from the first old fashioned, we were cursed
We never had a shotgun shot in the dark

You were driving the getaway car
We were flying, but we’d never get far
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
We’re riding in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Should’ve known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car
No, they never get far
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

It was the great escape, the prison break
The light of freedom on my face
But you weren’t thinking
And I was just drinking
Well he was running after us, I was screaming ‘Go go go!’
But with three of us, honey, it’s a side show
And a circus ain’t a love story
And now we’re both sorry (we’re both sorry)

X marks the spot, where we fell apart
He poisoned the well, every man for himself
I knew it from the first old fashioned, we were cursed
It hit you like a shotgun shot to the heart

You were driving the getaway car
We were flying, but we’d never get far
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
We’re riding in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Should’ve known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car
No, they never get far
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

We were jet set Bonnie and Clyde
Until I switched to the other side
It’s no surprise, I turned you in
‘Cause us traitors never win

I’m in a getaway car
I left you in the motel bar
I put the money in a bag and stole the keys
That was the last time you ever saw me

Driving the getaway car
We were flying, but we’d never get far
Don’t pretend it’s such a mystery
Think about the place where you first met me
We’re riding in a getaway car
There were sirens in the beat of your heart
Should’ve known I’d be the first to leave
Think about the place where you first met me
In a getaway car
No, they never get far
No, nothing good starts in a getaway car

I was riding in a getaway car
I was crying in a getaway car
I was dying in a getaway car
Said ‘goodbye’ in a getaway car

I was riding in a getaway car
I was crying in a getaway car
I was dying in a getaway car
Said ‘goodbye’ in a getaway car

Yesterday’s pick: “Green Light” by Lorde


The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Sigrid is an artist that I found about a year ago, and I’ve loved her ever since. I feel like she doesn’t get nearly the recognition she deserves in the U.S.. I’ve mentioned this song on my blog before, but “High Five” has to be one of my favorites.

Nobody dares to speak against your word
So they just sit quiet
Do what you want, who cares if you get hurt?

No, I don’t know why you wonder why
Wonder why, wonder why
You’re surrounded by the type of people
That never say what you don’t wanna hear
So they just stay quiet

Oh, everybody loves a show
Lights on, they all go home
You won’t let anybody close
That high five is all you got
Ooh, they keep saying you’re the best
You ask and they say, “Yeah”
Ooh, when you add up what is left
That high five is all you got

You say it’s hard, feel sorry for yourself
And I don’t know why you
You take it out on everybody else

No, I don’t know why you wonder why
Wonder why, wonder why
You’re alone at night, when they’re all up on ya
You know I tried, but you won’t call me back
So I just stay quiet

Ooh, everybody loves a show
Lights on, they all go home
You won’t let anybody close
That high five is all you got
Ooh, they keep saying you’re the best
You ask and they say, “Yeah”
Ooh, when you add up what is left
That high five is all you got

A-a-alright, don’t you get tired of looking for high fives?
A-a-alright, don’t you get tired of looking for high fives?
A-a-alright, don’t you get tired of, don’t you get tired of

And you wonder why, wonder why
No one’s by your side, by your side
When the room goes quiet

Ooh, everybody loves a show
Lights on, they all go home
You won’t let anybody close
That high five is all you got
Ooh, they keep saying you’re the best
You ask and they say, “Yeah”
Ooh, when you add up what is left
That high five is all you got
