Taylor Swift’s Question… Analysis [Part 1]

24 Nov

Taylor wins the pronoun game.  I’m not even going to try to untangle the speaker/recipient/changing characters in this song.  It was written so convoluted that I haven’t even seen a satisfactory answer to this yet.  Instead, I took lyric snippets from other songs featuring the same word, to get a feeling about Taylor’s sentiment and even subject. Don’t get overwhelmed with the length of this post.  The word I’m trying to point-out from Question… lyrics is highlighted.  

(I remember)

False God

August

Other Side of the Door

Wildest dreams

All Too Well

The “remember” in each of these songs seems tinged with sadness and regret.  They all deal with miscommunications with lovers.  It’s the first line of Question… which tells us the subject of the song will be sadness and regret about losing a lover.
