Taylor Swift’s Gay Moments: Reputation ~ Getaway Car

25 Feb

The songs on Reputation are packed with meaning, and there are many rabbit holes to go down. As such, this post would be too long if I included each song as I did with Debut, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, and 1989. I’ll release these song by song.

Getaway Car

It was the best of times, the worst of crimes/I struck a match and blew your mind/But I didn’t mean it, and you didn’t see it/The ties were black, the lies were white/In shades of gray in candlelight/I wanted to leave him, I needed a reason/”X” marks the spot where we fell apart/He poisoned the well, I was lyin’ to myself/I knew it from the first Old Fashioned, we were cursed/We never had a shotgun shot in the dark (oh!)…/…There were sirens in the beat of your heart/Should’ve known I’d be the first to leave…/…It was the great escape, the prison break/The light of freedom on my face/But you weren’t thinkin’ and I was just drinkin’/While he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, “Go, go, go!”/But with three of us, honey, it’s a sideshow/And a circus ain’t a love story, and now we’re both sorry (we’re both sorry)…/…It hit you like a shotgun shot to the heart (oh!)…/…We were jet-set, Bonnie and Clyde (oh-oh)/Until I switched to the other side, to the other side/It’s no surprise I turned you in (oh-oh)/’Cause us traitors never win…/…I was ridin’ in a getaway car/I was cryin’ in a getaway car/I was dyin’ in a getaway car/Said goodbye in a getaway car
