Cardigan Lyrics

Vintage tee, brand new phone High heels on cobblestones
When you are young they assume you know nothing Sequin smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young they assume you know nothing

But I knew you Dancing in your Levi’s
Drunk under a streetlight I knew you
Hand under my sweatshirt Baby kiss it better
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone’s bed You put me on and said I was your favorite

A friend to all is a friend to none Chase two girls, lose the one
When you are young they assume you know nothing

But I knew you
Playing hide-and-seek and Giving me your weekends I knew you
Your heartbeat on the High Line Once in twenty lifetimes
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone’s bed You put me on and said I was your favorite

To kiss in cars and downtown bars Was all we needed
You drew stars around my scars But now I’m bleeding

Cause I knew you Stepping on the last train

Marked me like a bloodstain I knew you
Tried to change the ending Peter losing Wendy
I knew you
Leaving like a father Running like water
When you are young they assume you know nothing But I knew you’d linger like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt all of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke would hang around this long Cause I knew everything when I was young
I knew I’d curse you for the longest time Chasing shadows in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss me once the thrill expired And you’d be standing in my front porch light And I knew you’d come back to me
You’d come back to me And you’d come back to me And you’d come back
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan Under someone’s bed
You put me on and said I was your favorite

“You drew stars around my scars, but now I am bleeding” is one of the greatest lyrics ever written

As a metalhead I never digged into her music. I knew she was there but never take the chance to listen to her. This album (Folklore) melt my soul. Now I understand why she is so popular. She is a great artist. Now I am a fan.

Idc what anyone says she’s definitely one of the best songwriter and artist of our generation

“Try to change the ending/Peter losing Wendy” I am gutted. With each new album Taylor’s talent just grows. She is truly one of the greatest singer-songwriters

I still remember how shocked everyone was when she surprised us with Folklore followed by Evermore and now, her re-recordings!

I still can’t understand why some people hate her. Songs she writes, music she does, that’s all a masterpiece, plus her beautiful voice and Taylor herself. She deserves the world. 💞

There is no woman as underrated as this woman in the art world. And I say that even though it’s so famous. This woman is a poet, an artist, talented, one of the smartest people I know, hardworking, constantly producing and working, she wears out, and despite the intense love of her fans, I don’t think her hardwork has been rewarded enough.

Can we just appreciate the fact that she released an entire new album and couple of her album’s re-recordings in just an exceptional amount of time?
No one can hate her. She is Taylor Swift

When everything else went wrong she clinged to her piano.That is music….what a masterpiece

I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS MUSIC VIDEO!!! This music video is definitely the most fascinating music video that I’ve ever seen. Firstly the mystic atmosphere that video has is literally melted my heart. The visuals, forest atmosphere, piano, artist’s costumes… Every detail of this music video is perfect and the song has a flawless harmony with them. You should take a look at Taylor’s other songs and music videos.

I don’t know why everytime Taylor Swift released a new song feels like opening a birthday gift. I just love her so much.

Such an enchanting song.. Came back to listen it after a long time and I’m again under its spell

Before folklore I probably would have still said that my favorite Taylor Swift song was “Fifteen,” or perhaps “Style,” but now “cardigan” stands out as the finest jewel in her crown. If ever there was a truly perfect song encapsulating everything that we love about Swift, surely “cardigan” is that high-water mark.

I remember the first time I heard this song last year. I was in the hospital when my mental health got really bad and in my room they gave me a radio to listen to music. “Next up on 107.9 is Taylor Swifts song ‘Cardigan’ from her new album Folklore.” I sat on the windowsill at 1 a.m. looking over the beautiful city, being the loneliest I have ever been in my life. I am a lot better now but that was over a year ago and this song means so much to me.

She’s been in music industry more than a decade. People might say she’s old. There are a lot of artists trending right now. She’s like an old cardigan. But she’s always a favorite to all. No matter how many people want to deny it. I like to listen to Taylor’s song whenever I feel overwhelmed. Her song hit differently. She is a real artist.
