Maroon
Taylor Swift Lyrics


When the morning came we were cleaning incense off your vinyl shelf
'Cause we lost track of time again
Laughing with my feet in your lap
Like you were my closest friend
How'd we end up on the floor anyway? You say
"Your roommate's cheap-ass screw-top rosé, that's how"
I see you every day now

And I chose you
The one I was dancin' with
In New York, no shoes
Looked up at the sky and it was

The burgundy on my T-shirt when you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks, so scarlet, it was
The mark you saw on my collarbone, the rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home, so scarlet, it was maroon

When the silence came, we were shaking blind and hazy
How the hell did we lose sight of us again?
Sobbin' with your head in your hands
Ain't that the way shit always ends?
You were standing hollow-eyed in the hallway
Carnations you had thought were roses, that's us
I feel you no matter what
The rubies that I gave up

And I lost you
The one I was dancin' with
In New York, no shoes
Looked up at the sky and it was maroon

The burgundy on my T-shirt when you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks, so scarlet, it was (maroon)
The mark you saw on my collarbone, the rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home, so scarlet, it was (maroon)

And I wake with your memory over me
That's a real fucking legacy, legacy (it was maroon)
And I wake with your memory over me
That's a real fucking legacy to leave

The burgundy on my T-shirt when you splashed your wine into me
And how the blood rushed into my cheeks, so scarlet (it was maroon)
The mark you saw on my collarbone, the rust that grew between telephones
The lips I used to call home, so scarlet (it was maroon)

It was maroon
It was maroon

This song is about her relationship in the Red album. Back then she said loving him was red, but now she realizes it was much darker than she thought it was and loving him was maroon instead. It shows that our perceptions of our life experiences change over time which is why Midnights is a brilliant album with a brilliant concept.

I disagree a bit. She mentions carnations he thought were roses, and says that was them. I think she’s saying that they loved each other and at the height of it, it was red, but then eventually they realize they were never meant to be more than friends. Bright red carnations represent friendship. Maroon to me is the feeling once you past the high and realize it’s not quite working even if that person isn’t bad.

The harmonies in this song get into my soul

The Atmos stems show a lot more going with the harmonies. It sounds like at least 5 layers of her own vocals.

Yeeesss :(

Taylor inspired me to go all in with my music. She was once just like me, an artist without many listeners. And now she’s on top. I believe it will happen for me one day, Im not stopping when it does! 🧡

I am going to tell you why "Maroon" is one of the most genius song she's ever written.

She was able to say "red" six times without actually saying "red" for atleast once.

Burgundy, Wine, Scarlet, Maroon, Blood, and Rust are all shades of Red. In fact, she said "red" eight times if we're going to add "Rose and Ruby" from the 2nd verse.

This is how you play with words.

@kpop gg fan I agree. To me it would be easy to create such a thing. It rather needs dedication - of course talent.

But maybe genius is also a perspective. I call people genius when they do something extremely complex, maybe added something I am incapable of doing .

@Natalia Almeida "Monkey saw on my collarbone" threw me off for a bit.

TheJofrica

Don't forget the hickey mark on her collarbone - that is definitely a shade of red.
