di Nekromantik Commenta

Cardigan di Taylor Swift ha edulcorato la sorpresa che la popstar ha fatto ai suoi fan: Folklore, il suo ottavo album in studio, è stato annunciato senza preavviso nella giornata di ieri 23 luglio. In questo nuovo disco – 16 tracce + la bonus track The Lakes – Taylor Swift ha inserito tutti i suoi tormenti, sentimenti che hanno unito il mondo intero in questo 2020 pieno di brutte sorprese.

Parliamo, ovviamente, del grande lockdown e della morte di George Floyd. Un progetto, Folklore, che si è rivelato inaspettato anche per la stessa popstar di Lover che mentre procedeva ai lavori su questo nuovo disco non riusciva a trovare il momento giusto per la release. Per questo ha scelto di lanciarlo all’improvviso.

Cardigan di Taylor Swift è anche un video emozionale, con la cantante che viaggia verso un mondo parallelo mentre suona il piano. Siamo di fronte a una ballata pop che strizza l’occhio all’ambient, al trip hop e alla pancia, perché dalle prime note scopriamo tutta la sincerità di un’artista che ha bisogno di dire qualcosa e ancora e ancora.

[Verse 1]
Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
Sequined smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young, they assume you know nothing

[Chorus]
But I knew you
Dancin’ in your Levi’s
Drunk under a streetlight, I
I knew you
Hand under my sweatshirt
Baby, kiss it better, I

[Refrain]
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

[Verse 2]
A friend to all is a friend to none
Chase two girls, lose the one
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
[Chorus]
But I knew you
Playing hide-and-seek and
Giving me your weekends, I
I knew you
Your heartbeat on the High Line
Once in twenty lifetimes, I

[Refrain]
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

[Bridge]
To kiss in cars and downtown bars
Was all we needed
You drew stars around my scars
But now I’m bleedin’

[Chorus]
‘Cause I knew you
Steppin’ on the last train
Marked me like a bloodstain, I
I knew you
Tried to change the ending
Peter losing Wendy, I
I knew you
Leavin’ like a father
Running like water, I
And when you are young, they assume you know nothing
[Verse 3]
But I knew you’d linger like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt all of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke would hang around this long
‘Cause I knew everything when I was young
I knew I’d curse you for the longest time
Chasin’ shadows in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss me once the thrill expired
And you’d be standin’ in my front porch light
And I knew you’d come back to me
You’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back

[Refrain]
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite
