Taylor Swift’s “Getaway Car” Lyrics Will Make Calvin Harris & Tom Hiddleston Cringe
It's here, world. Taylor Swift finally dropped her Reputation album after one of the longest, wildest PR campaigns I've had the pleasure (or misfortune) of being a part of, and it's a total masterpiece. The record as a whole is totally insane, and fans are loving each and every one of the beautiful, individual tracks that made the cut. In particular, Taylor Swift's "Getaway Car" lyrics are INTENSE.
Take a look:
If that doesn't have you feeling things, then Taylor Swift and I can't help you.
"Getaway Car," currently available on iTunes with the rest of Reputation, accompanies the previously released hits "Look What You Made Me Do," "... Ready For It?," "Gorgeous," and "Call It What You Want," all of which could be about Swift's past relationships, if you listen to them long enough.
Known for pouring her romantic relationships into her work, it seems likely that "Getaway Car" is in reference to one (or two) of her biggest breakups, you know, like with Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston, for example.
I wonder what they're thinking right now listening to the words, "... but with three of us, honey, it’s a side show and a circus. Ain't a love story and now were both sorry." Hmm...
Ah yes, those were great, albeit dramatic, times.
Besides her romantic life, the other theme that runs heavy throughout Reputation is her battle with the media and her literal reputation.
Thanks to some poignant feuds with other celebrities (*cough* Kim Kardashian and Kayne West *cough* Katy Perry *cough* Calvin Harris *cough* etc. etc. etc.), Swift has been accused of playing the ultimate victim throughout most of her career. On this album, she seems to tackle this accusation head-on and attempt to take back the "narrative" around her.
You guys, look what we (Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, Katy Perry, etc.) made Taylor do.
