There couldn't be a better song choice for me this week since today is the first of august!

Lyrics:

Salt air, and the rust on your door
I never needed anything more
Whispers of "Are you sure?"
"Never have I ever before"

But I can see us lost in the memory
August slipped away into a moment in time
'Cause it was never mine
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
'Cause you were never mine

Your back beneath the sun
Wishin' I could write my name on it
Will you call when you're back at school?
I remember thinkin' I had you

But I can see us lost in the memory
August slipped away into a moment in time
'Cause it was never mine
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
'Cause you were never mine

Back when we were still changin' for the better
Wanting was enough
For me, it was enough
To live for the hope of it all
Cancel plans just in case you'd call
And say, "Meet me behind the mall"
So much for summer love and saying "us"
'Cause you weren't mine to lose
You weren't mine to lose, no

But I can see us lost in the memory
August slipped away into a moment in time
'Cause it was never mine
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
'Cause you were never mine
'Cause you were never mine, never mine

But do you remember?
Remember when I pulled up and said, "Get in the car"
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
"Meet me behind the mall"

Remember when I pulled up and said, "Get in the car"
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all (For the hope of it all)

For the hope of it all
For the hope of it all
(For the hope of it all)
(For the hope of it all)

About august: Alongside fellow tracks "cardigan" and "betty", "august" constitutes a fictitious love triangle involving three characters: Betty, James, and an unnamed female. The song is written from the latter's perspective, depicting her sorrow over her derailed summer romance with James, who abandoned her and reconciled with Betty. Swift, in her 2020 concert documentary folklore: the long pond studio sessions, said that she personally calls the unnamed narrator "Augustine" or "Augusta". (Wikipedia)



Is this song a favorite? Is it the best out of the three?

a classic cheeseblock.png the way this has been trending all of august so far, a new monthly classic and I'm hoping for a streams boost cheeseblock.png the way this has become one of the most acclaimed tracks of her career!

I rly love it <3 It's easily 2nd for me in the triangle songs (miles behind cardigan but def quite a bit ahead of betty)

Interestingly 'August' has re entered the top 100 officially this week and it's now September laugh.gif so much for charting only in the month of the song title.
