SLS – Room

When I saw Jim’s theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday, I thought of one of my favourite Taylor Swift songs…and particularly the video which really fits with this theme.

The video features a house, and there are scenes shot in the various colourful rooms. There are some great messages in the video. You may notice the bathroom – I think Taylor was explaining what it is like for her lover to join her in what must feel like a gold fish bowl, with the media trying to watch their every move and invade their privacy. There are so many sweet portrayals of what it is like for a couple to move in together and create their own home.

I had been with Ben for around ten months when this was released, and it made me smile so much to see this video. Ben is the only boyfriend I have ever lived with (for over three years now) and I love it.

“Lover” was written by Taylor Swift, and we all presume it is another song about Joe. Ah sigh! So happy she found a goodan!

We could leave the Christmas lights up 'til January
This is our place, we make the rules
And there's a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear
Have I known you twenty seconds or twenty years?

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out and take me home
You're my, my, my, my
Lover

We could let our friends crash in the living room
This is our place, we make the call
And I'm highly suspicious that everyone who sees you wants you
I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out and take me home (Forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my
Lover

Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?
With every guitar string scar on my hand
I take this magnetic force of a man to be my
Lover
My heart's been borrowed and yours has been blue
All's well that ends well to end up with you
Swear to be over-dramatic and true to my
Lover

And you'll save all your dirtiest jokes for me
And at every table, I'll save you a seat
Lover

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out and take me home (Forever and ever)
You're my, my, my, my
Oh, you're my, my, my, my
Darling, you're my, my, my, my
Lover
