Cruel Summer Lyrics - Taylor Swift


The song depicts a passionate and tumultuous summer romance that Taylor Swift experiences. It begins with a reference to a "fever dream high in the quiet of the night," symbolizing the intensity and surreal nature of the relationship. The lines "bad, bad boy, shiny toy with a price, you know that I bought it" suggest that she's drawn to someone who may not be good for her but is irresistible nonetheless.


The pre-chorus expresses the conflicting emotions she experiences, with the person she's involved with causing her pain and longing. The metaphor "devils roll the dice, angels roll their eyes" implies that she knows this romance might be risky and disapproved of by others, but she can't help being drawn to it.


In the chorus, the lyrics "it's new, the shape of your body, it's blue, the feeling I've got" indicate the freshness and intensity of her emotions. The phrase "cruel summer" reflects the difficult and challenging nature of the relationship, with her heart being pulled in different directions.


The second verse describes moments of vulnerability and doubts about the relationship's future. They may feel like they'll mess things up during difficult times, but they can't resist each other. The pre-chorus reiterates the conflicting emotions and the secrecy involved in this romance.


The bridge tells us that Taylor finds herself intoxicated and emotional, crying like a baby after a night out. She admits to hiding her true feelings just to keep the other person close. Sneaking into the garden gate at night symbolizes their clandestine meetings and the lengths she goes to for this relationship. Taylor knows that loving this person is risky and painful, but she can't help confessing her love for them.


The chorus is repeated, emphasizing the intense emotions and the turmoil of the cruel summer romance.


The outro brings us back to Taylor being drunk in the back of the car and feeling emotional, reiterating the pain and secrecy that characterize the relationship. She admits that saying she's "fine" isn't true, and she doesn't want to keep hiding her feelings just to keep the person around.


Compete lyrics of the song
[Intro]
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

{Verse No. 1}
Fever dream high in the quiet of the night
You know that I caught it (Oh yeah, you're right, I want it)
Bad, bad boy, shiny toy with a price
You know that I bought it (Oh yeah, you're right, I want it)

{Pre-Chorus}
Killing me slow, out the window
I'm always waiting for you to be waiting below
Devils roll the dice, angels roll their eyes
What doesn't kill me makes me want you more
{Chorus}
And it's new, the shape of your body
It's blue, the feeling I've got
And it's ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
It's cool, that's what I tell 'em
No rules in breakable heaven
But ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
With you

{Verse No. 2}
Hang your head low in the glow of the vending machine
I'm not dying (Oh yeah, you're right, I want it)
We say that we'll just screw it up in these trying times
We're not trying (Oh yeah, you're right, I want it)

[Pre-Chorus 2]
So cut the headlights, summer's a knife
I'm always waiting for you just to cut to the bone
Devils roll the dice, angels roll their eyes
And if I bleed, you'll be the last to know

{Chorus}
Oh, it's new, the shape of your body
It's blue, the feeling I've got
And it's ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
It's cool, that's what I tell 'em
No rules in breakable heaven
But ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
With you

{Bridge}
I'm drunk in the back of the car
And I cried like a baby coming home from the bar (Oh)
Said, "I'm fine," but it wasn't true
I don't wanna keep secrets just to keep you
And I snuck in through the garden gate
Every night that summer just to seal my fate (Oh)
And I scream, "For whatever it's worth
I love you, ain't that the worst thing you ever heard?"
He looks up, grinning like a devil

{Chorus}
It's new, the shape of your body
It's blue, the feeling I've got
And it's ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
It's cool, that's what I tell 'em
No rules in breakable heaven
But ooh, whoa oh
It's a cruel summer
With you

[Outro]
I'm drunk in the back of the car
And I cried like a baby coming home from the bar (Oh)
Said, "I'm fine," but it wasn't true
I don't wanna keep secrets just to keep you
And I snuck in through the garden gate
Every night that summer just to seal my fate (Oh)
And I scream, "For whatever it's worth
I love you, ain't that the worst thing you ever heard?"
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
