Renegade
Big Red Machine [feat. Taylor Swift] Lyrics


I tapped on your window on your darkest night
The shape of you was jagged and weak
There was nowhere for me to stay
But I stayed anyway
And if I would've known
How many pieces you had crumbled into
I might've let them lay

Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
And let all your damage damage me
And carry your baggage up my street
And make me your future history
It's time, you've come a long way
Open the blinds, let me see your face
You wouldn't be the first renegade
To need somebody

Is it insensitive for me to say
Get your shit together?
So I can love you
Is it really your anxiety
That stops you from giving me everything?
Or do you just not want to?

I tapped on your window on your darkest night
The shape of you was jagged and weak
There was nowhere for me to stay
But I stayed anyway
You fire off missiles 'cause you hate yourself
But do you know you're demolishing me?
And then you squeeze my hand as I'm about to leave

Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
Let all your damage damage me
And carry your baggage up my street
And make me your future history
It's time, you've come a long way
Open the blinds, let me see your face
You wouldn't be the first renegade
To need somebody

Is it insensitive for me to say
Get your shit together?
So I can love you
Is it really your anxiety
That stops you from giving me everything?
Or do you just not want to?

And if I would've known
How sharp the pieces were you'd crumbled into
I might've let them lay

Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
And let all your damage damage me
And carry your baggage up my street
And make me your future history
It's time, you've come a long way
Open the blinds, let me see your face
You wouldn't be the first renegade
To need somebody

To need somebody
To need somebody
To need somebody
To need somebody

(Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?)
Is it insensitive for me to say (let all your damage damage me)
Get your shit together (carry your baggage up my street)
So I can love you? (And make me your future history)
(It's time, you've come a long way) is it really your anxiety
(Open the blinds, let me see your face) that stops you from giving me everything
(You wouldn't be the first renegade to need somebody)
Or do you just not want to?

Just an observation and some interpretations I wanted to put out there-
At the beginning of the song, the lyrics go: "And if I would’ve known how many pieces you had crumbled into, I might’ve let them lay."
Later in the song the lyrics subtly change to: “And if I would’ve known how sharp the pieces were you’d crumbled into, I might’ve let them lay.”

My interpretation is that this brings out the different challenges faced in the relationship. At first, the lyrics talk about the numerous broken pieces, showing how you spend lots of time and energy in gathering the several pieces of broken glass, pieces of the other person.
Later, the lyrics talk about how sharp the pieces are and how painful the whole process could be.

The fact that this change comes in later in the song shows how over time all the efforts and energy someone spends in trying to help a loved one with mental struggles actually turns into hurt and pain - pain from the "ripple effect" of the other's mental illness, pain from being pushed out, pain from not being able to help them the way you want to

What do you guys think? Any thoughts/interpretations, or a lyric that spoke to you?

"Renegade"
(feat. Taylor Swift)

I tapped on your window on your darkest night
The shape of you
Was jagged and weak
There was nowhere for me to stay
But I stayed anyway
And if I would've known
How many pieces you had crumbled into
I might have let them lay

Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
And let all your damage, damage me
And carry your baggage up my street
And make me your future history

It's time, you've come a long way
Open the blinds, let me see your face
You wouldn't be the first renegade
To need somebody

Is it insensitive for me to say
Get your shit together
So I can love you?
Is it really your anxiety
That stops you from giving me everything
Or do you just not want to?

I tapped on your window on your darkest night
The shape of you
Was jagged and weak

You fire off missiles cause you hate yourself
But do you know you're demolishing me?
And then you squeeze my hand as I'm about to leave

Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these?
Let all your damage, damage me
And carry your baggage up my street
And make me your future history

It's time, you've come a long way
Open the blinds, let me see your face
You wouldn't be the first renegade
To need somebody

To need somebody

To need somebody
I need somebody
To need somebody
To need somebody

That stops you from giving me everything
(Open the blinds, let me see your face
You wouldn't be the first renegade
To need somebody)
Or do you just not want to?
