Red

Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street
Faster than the wind
Passionate as sin, ended so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind
Once you’re already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn
So bright just before they lose it all

Losing him was blue like I’ve never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you’ve never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red

Touching him is like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there’s no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong

Losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you’ve never met
But loving him was red
Oh red burning red

Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes
Tell myself it’s time now, gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible
When I still see it all in my head

Burning red!
Loving him was red!

Oh, losing him was blue like I’d never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you’ve never met
Cause loving him was red yeah yeah red
We’re burning red

And that’s why he’s spinning round in my head
Comes back to me burning red
Yeah yeah

Cause love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street

Never expected myself to ‘feel’ a taylor swift song’s lyrics. but yeah, here I am relating to everything she sang in this. Its melancholia + regret/pity + the feeling of “it could have been”s.

Questions after questions. Did I shape the outcome? Should I have checked his phone? Should I have been more controlling? Should I have tagged along to everything he attended? If I did that, I wouldnt be me anymore, right?

Maybe theres a thrill for you in upsetting me. You know I want you to be safe and healthy, so you stayed up late to cycle. You know I’ll worry, so you dont tell me things, you know I’m clueless, so you lie to me. I shall be a pushover no more.
