Apparently, it leaked today. (Please do not post leaks.) I've heard some interesting things about it, such as how a few lines line up with hoax. Also, people keep saying this song refers to a possible engagement or pregnancy, but who knows how true those things are.


Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
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

[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

[Verse 2]
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

[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

[Bridge]
I want auroras and sad prose
I want to watch wisteria grow right over my bare feet
Because I haven't moved in years
And I want you right here
A red rose grew up out of ice frozen ground
With no one around to tweet it
While I bathe in cliffside pools
With my calamitous love and insurmountable grief

[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
No, not without you

Itís sounding so beautiful today!! Obvs itís hard to compare rn cos Iíve heard the rest of the album so much more but I think thisíll leapfrog a couple of the tracks after a few more listens!

I imagine this'll be pushed as a single for a streaming release later in the year...

idk, I did think that at one point but as much as I love it, it really feels like something that'd completely bomb as a single. I wouldn't be surprised if they did something like they did with begin again where they give it a video + push it minimally for a couple weeks when it goes onto streaming and that's it. On the other hand I wouldn't be shocked if it just one day randomly appears on Spotify with no hype laugh.gif

maybe like a re-release similar to 'Fearless' (or what they did with 'Speak Now' where they released the target bonus tracks a year later).

Though, I'm with you on the surprise release... you never know.

Glad they added it, the only place I could listen was my car laugh.gif

I wish they'd added it on a Friday though, would have been cool if it had gone Top 40
