Story #16. Song lyrics tell you lot: Last Kiss by Taylor Swift

Hi,

I was working on my visual layout when I hear this song and having kind of mix feeling when I listen to the lyrics. Silly but true. Funny and I guess at least once in a lifetime girls have this moment. It honestly remind me to one moment ever happen in my life. So i write it down and tell you how I interprets this song and how its every words crossed in my thought. Taylor Swift’s songs for me are always damn true ^.^

“Last Kiss”
By Taylor Swift

I still remember the look on your face
Lit through the darkness at 1:58
The words that you whispered
For just us to know
You told me you loved me
So why did you go away?
Away
*When you’re in love, you keep telling your lover how much you love each other. But then when one leave the other there’s a question that you both will never satisfy with the answer: why did you go away? Well love comes first, brain comes later. Love is because you love, leave is because you’re start use your brain for logical thought.
I do recall now the smell of the rain
Fresh on the pavement
I ran off the plane
That July 9th
The beat of your heart
It jumps through your shirt
I can still feel your arms
*Aahh.. I won’t comment on this one. I guess this is when Taylor was  flew to attend a Jonas Brothers show, her ex. “Can still feel your arms” yeah, that’s romantic.But now I’ll go sit on the floor
Wearing your clothes
All that I know is
I don’t know how to be something you miss
I never thought we’d have a last kiss
Never imagined we’d end like this
Your name, forever the name on my lips

*When you left your lover behind, you flash back to where you both first met, how you starts the relationship. No body has imagination of how’s the relationship ended. No one expect it in the early of relationship. I don’t know how to be something you miss (ga ada ide gimana lw bisa melewatkan gw. Kata-kata ini biasanya diucapkan oleh pihak yang ditinggalkan.. : p ), it’s an expression of disappointed of my/yourself as an ex.

I do remember the swing of your step
The life of the party, you’re showing off again
And I roll my eyes and then
You pull me in
I’m not much for dancing
But for you I did

Because I love your handshake, meeting my father
I love how you walk with your hands in your pockets
How you kissed me when I was in the middle of saying something
There’s not a day I don’t miss those rude interruptions

*This is my favourite part! Perhaps because I’m a type of cool (read: indifferent) but I pay attention on the detail. Still on your flash back, you’ll remember so much simple little things when you’re together, such swing of each step, maybe the touch of the hands, and a special simple moment between you two. Special isn’t always romantic, could be a silly and fool moment but you both enjoy it. That moment for Taylor must be very memorable, she even remember her expression at the moment. “I’m not much for dancing, but for you I did” That’s happen to a lot of couple I guessed, small stuff that means a lot. In the name of loving you, I dance. In the name of loving you, I’ll cross the ocean! LOL : ))

And I’ll go sit on the floor
Wearing your clothes
All that I know is
I don’t know how to be something you miss
Never thought we’d have a last kiss
Never imagined we’d end like this
Your name, forever the name on my lips

So I’ll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep
And I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe
And I keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are
Hope it’s nice where you are

*This still the words of disappointed and no idea how come the relationship ended up that way. I don’t know either mine. On the part when Taylor say that she’s keep up with the old friend I think it’s a reality part that life must go on. You and I are no longer lover but each other are deserve to continue a good life, move on, and let go the past. Just hoping that you have a fine life too, where ever your are. This is a good, sincere wish for the ex, rather than you curse and hate your ex. Be peace at any possible moment you could.

And I hope the sun shines
And it’s a beautiful day
And something reminds you
You wish you had stayed
You can plan for a change in weather and time
But I never planned on you changing your mind

*For sure that after your down, sad, disappointed moment after a break up you start a new wish for your own life. It’s your everyday decision of a plan for a change. This part is saying a message that as an ex, I never planned on you changing your mind. If you’re already break up, just don’t look back. Sometimes in your life you remember your ex(s), but it only remembered, never mean to go back to the past, change your mind and be a lover again. Eeeuuhhh… back to “former lover” is a big no way!! Just remember if you don’t know how to be something that he/she had missed, then in the future you’ll never know too.

So I’ll go sit on the floor
Wearing your clothes
All that I know is
I don’t know how to be something you miss
Never thought we’d have a last kiss
Never imagined we’d end like this
Your name, forever the name on my lips

Just like our last kiss
Forever the name on my lips
Forever the name on my lips

Just like our last…

*Try to flash back, and answer this: Do you have your last kiss before a break up?

 

Happy reading,

Nice to share,

Ciao : )
