Taylor Swift has reminded fans on Tuesday that the deluxe editions of Folklore feature the bonus song, “The Lakes” which is now available on streaming platforms. You can check the track out below.
The sparse, pastoral song was written and produced by Swift and Jack Antonoff and it’s full of pointed lyrics delivered over acoustic guitar and elegant strings.
“Is it romantic how all of my elegies eulogize me?/ I’m not cut out for all these cynical clones These hunters with cell phones,” Swift sings in the first verse before diving into the quickening chorus. “Take me to the lakes, where all the poets went to die/ I don’t belong and, my beloved, neither do you/ Those Windermere peaks look like a perfect place to cry/ I’m setting off, but not without my muse,” she sings, with yet another lyrical allusion to England, this time to Windermere, the country’s largest natural lake.
“The Lakes”, which appears on the eight different deluxe versions of the album, also features one of Swift’s signature lyrics daggers, aimed at unnamed people who try to get her goat. “What should be over burrowed under my skin/ In heart-stopping waves of hurt/ I’ve come too far to watch some namedropping sleaze/ Tell me what are my words worth.”
