Girls don’t want boys, they want cliff edges and cliff side pools to watch wisteria grow
One thing I’ve noticed is this album has taken much longer to learn the lyrics to because I’m not commuting right now.
Who knew that commuter traffic was such an integral part of my lyric learning time.. 🙃
Today might be the 4 year anniversary of Jaylor but hehe I got my signed folklore CD.
Anyone else trying to work so hard to get ahead of the curve to be where they want to be but now have to live their life haunted by the lyric “I was so ahead of the curve but then the curve became a sphere”
You want to meet me behind the mall but I want to meet you in the afterglow… we are not the same
Thoughts on Cardigan voice memo:
So after I listened to the voice memo, I actually think the line “Peter leaving Wendy” makes more sense than “Peter losing Wendy”. The line before says “tried to change the ending”. In Peter Pan, Wendy decides to return home, and Peter decides to return to Neverland.
If the ending were to be changed, it would end with Peter leaving Wendy. It would involve Wendy wanting to stay with Peter in Neverland, but Peter telling her she has to go home.
In Peter Pan, Peter does lose Wendy. He loses her in two ways. One, she returns home. Peter knows he doesn’t want to stay and grow up, so he loses Wendy the moment she decides to return home. But he also loses her because she grows up. Even though Peter promises to visit, Wendy grows up and Peter stays young. So Peter loses Wendy, the girl he knew. Even though she still exists, the young girl who he loved no longer exists. Highlighting how much we change as we grow older.
But, one could argue that “Peter losing Wendy” fits perfectly too. Because Wendy does lose Peter when he decides to leave and stay a boy forever. She realizes that he will never be in her life the way she wants him to be. And so when you change the ending, it’s Peter who would lose Wendy.
But, I think it also depends on whose point of view your viewing the story from. Because you could argue in many ways, they both lost and left each other, just not in the same way.
Would love to hear Taylor’s thoughts on why she chose to change “leaving” to “losing”!
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”
i feel like Treacherous￼ is the prequel to I Know Places
