Taylor Swift – Red lyrics

[Verse 1]
Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street
Faster than the wind
Passionate as sin, ended so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind
Once you're already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn
So bright just before they lose it all


[Chorus]
Losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you've never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

[Verse 2]
Touching him is like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there's no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out love could be that strong

[Chorus]
Losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you've never met
But loving him was red
Oh red burning red

[Bridge]
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes
Tell myself it's time now, gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible
When I still see it all in my head

Burning red!
Darling it was red!

[Chorus]
Oh, losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you've never met
Cause loving him was red yeah yeah red
We're burning red

[Outro]
And that's why he's spinning round in my head
Comes back to me burning red
Yeah yeah

Cause love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street.

    The meaning of this song, unfortunately, is about falling in love with a narcissistic sociopath. For example:
    1: "Forgetting him was like trying to know someone you never met". Sociopaths wear a "mask", they charm you by mirroring back to you your own needs and vulnerability. But it is all a lie, because these types of men are only capable of loving themselves.
    2: "Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street". The typical sociopath gives his victim a "whirlwind" romance. He's charming, handsome, spontaneous, takes risks, and moves Super Fast! By the end of week one, your his soulmate. But... you don't see that he's a lying, manipulative, souless predator, and not only is this relationship going nowhere - your about to crash and (BE) burned.
    3: That is why "loving him was as easy as memorizing words in your old favorite song", cuz sociopaths manipulate by preying on your weaknesses. Thats why "Moving on from him is impossible when i still see it all in my head". Victims of sociopaths often, after the break-up, try to replay it all in their heads, often hurt, damaged and confused as to what
    they did wrong...nothing...a sociopath always blames his victim. FINALLY, thats why the song is called... RED...
    4: "Burning Red! Darling it was Red!" You see, once the fog clears after being manipulated, conned, lied to, and had your heart trampled by a Narcissistic Sociopath....you are ANGRY because, 1) He was the MOST passionate romance you ever had, and 2) He ABUSED YOU the entire time, mind-f**d you, and all you could do is beg for more... READ ANGRY... seeing red.
    Take Heed Ladies! Taylor Swift is looking out for you! Trust an old battle-worn chick who has seen it all. These guys are out there... be warned! They cause damage.
