Song of the week…

Music is one of my favourite things in the world. It’s funny how there is always a song you can relate to, as if you have written it yourself. Music is a way of life, it tells us about past experiences, messages or feelings we can’t express otherwise.

So my little present for you is to find a song of the week, every week. To take off, I chose a song by Taylor Swift. It is called Better than Revenge and is about a girl who stole her boyfriend. I think this is something we all can relate to whether the person achieved it or didn’t even get close.

Here is the lyrics and a website where you can listen to it. Sing it at the top of your lungs and show that who you are and where you are now, is better than revenge!

Better Than Revenge [Lyrics by elyrics.net]

Now go stand in the corner
And think about what you did
Ha, time for a little revenge

The story starts when it was hot and it was summer
And I had it all, I had him right there where I wanted him
She came along, got him alone, and let’s hear the applause
She took him faster than you can say sabotage

I never saw it coming, wouldn’t have suspected it
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum
She underestimated just who she was stealing from

She’s not a saint, and she’s not what you think
She’s an actress, whoa
She’s better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, whoa

Soon she’s gonna find stealing other people’s toys
On the playground won’t make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, ha

She lives her life like it’s a party and she’s on the list
She looks at me like I’m a trend and she’s so over it
I think her ever present frown is a little troubling
She thinks I’m psycho ’cause I like to rhyme her name with things but

Sophistication isn’t what you wear or who you know
Or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go
Oh, they didn’t teach you that in prep school, so it’s up to me
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity

She’s not a saint, and she’s not what you think
She’s an actress, whoa
She’s better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, whoa

Soon she’s gonna find stealing other people’s toys
On the playground won’t make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, ha

I’m just another thing for you to roll your eyes at, honey
You might have him, but haven’t you heard?
I’m just another thing for you to roll your eyes at, honey
You might have him, but I always get the last word

She’s not a saint, and she’s not what you think
She’s an actress, whoa
She’s better known for the things that she does
On the mattress, whoa

Soon she’s gonna find stealing other people’s toys
On the playground won’t make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, ha

And do you still feel like you know what you’re doing?
‘Cause I don’t think you do, oh
Do you still feel like you know what you’re doing?
I don’t think you do, I don’t think you do

Let’s hear the applause
C’mon show me how much better you are
See you deserve some applause
‘Cause you’re so much better
She took him faster than you can say sabotage
