SLS – Misery

Jim has challenged us this week to find songs of misery and anguish. I can’t go that far – I don’t want to ruin the weekend. But the good news is Taylor is back!!! She kinda knocked the ball out of the park in 2020 (yet again) releasing two albums during the Pandemic that fitted the mood we were in.

This is one of the songs from her album “evermore” and it is called “dorothea”.

Thank you to the dynamic duo of Aaron Brooking Dessner and Taylor Alison Swift who gave us wonderful musical gifts in 2020!

Hey Dorothea
Do you ever stop and think about me?
When we were younger
Down in the park
Honey, making a lark of the misery
You got shiny friends since you left town
A tiny screen’s the only place I see you now
And I got nothing but well wishes for ya

Oooh
This place is the same as it ever was
Oooh
But you don’t like it that way

It’s never too late
To come back to my side
The stars in your eyes
Shined brighter in Tupelo
And if you’re ever tired of being known
For who you know
You know, you’ll always know me
Dorothea
Dorothea

Ooh, you’re a queen
Selling dreams
Selling make up and magazines
Ooh, from you I’d buy anything

Hey Dorothea
Do you ever stop and think about me?
When it was calmer
Skipping the prom
Just to piss off your mom
And her pageant schemes
And damn, Dorothea
They all wanna be ya
But are you still the same soul?
I met under the bleachers, well

Oooh
I guess I’ll never know
Oooh
And you’ll go on with the show

But it’s never too late
To come back to my side
The stars in your eyes
Shined brighter in Tupelo
And if you’re ever tired of being known
For who you know
You know, you’ll always know me

Dorothea
Dorothea

Oooh
Oooh
Ooh-woo-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Oooh
Oooh
Ooh-woo-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

Dorothea
