New Romantics
Taylor Swift Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We're all bored, we're all so tired of everything
We wait for trains that just aren't comin'
We show off our different scarlet letters
Trust me, mine is better
We're so young but we're on the road to ruin
We play dumb but we know exactly what we're doin'
We cry tears of mascara in the bathroom
Honey, life is just a classroom
(Ah, ah, ah)

'Cause, baby, I could build a castle
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day is like a battle
But every night with us is like a dream
Baby, we're the new romantics
Come on, come along with me
Heartbreak is the national anthem
We sing it proudly
We are too busy dancin'
To get knocked off our feet
Baby, we're the new romantics
The best people in life are free

We're all here, the lights and noise are blinding
We hang back, it's all in the timing
It's poker, he can't see it in my face
But I'm about to play my Ace
We need love, but all we want is danger
We team up then switch sides like a record changer
The rumors are terrible and cruel
But, honey, most of them are true
(Ah, ah, ah)

'Cause, baby, I could build a castle
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day is like a battle
But every night with us is like a dream
Baby, we're the new romantics
Come on, come along with me
Heartbreak is the national anthem
We sing it proudly
We are too busy dancin'
To get knocked off our feet
Baby, we're the new romantics
The best people in life are free

So come on, come along with me
The best people in life are free

Please take my hand and
Please take me dancin' and
Please leave me stranded
It's so romantic (it's so romantic)
(Ah, ah, ah)

Oh, 'cause baby, I could build a castle
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day is like a battle
But every night with us is like a dream
'Cause, baby, I could build a castle (castle)
Out of all the bricks they threw at me
And every day is like a battle
But every night with us is like a dream
Baby, we're the new romantics
Come on, come along with me
Heartbreak is the national anthem
We sing it proudly
We are too busy dancin'
To get knocked off our feet




Baby, we're the new romantics
The best people in life are free

Dear Taylor,
You're a beautiful sweetheart,
Even if your world is falling apart.
With a lot of artists, you are fighting,
But, unlike them, you're shining.
I love your music,
Because it's so romantic.
So many times in your life, you have been broken,
By cheaters and bad men.
When you enter in a room,
Everybody's head goes kaboom.
You're my idol and will always be,
Because you're not a snake, a liar or a wannabe.

Thank you for everything! You probably don't know how much you mean to me. You walked into my life a year and a half ago, when my days weren't happy at all. But you were there, brightening up my day and making me smile when I didn't think that it was possible. You are still here for me even if you don't know it. Without you, I would probably not be here today. I loved, I love and I will always love you.

Happy birthday,
Lili❤️❤️❤️

"We're all bored, we're all so tired of everything."
Taylor predicted what we're feeling in 2020. Her mind.
